Eye Candy : Gao YuanYuan for Elle

Gao YuanYuan, Gao YuanYuan Elle, Gao YuanYuan 2012, Gao Yuanyuan Paris

Paris is always a spectacular editorial backdrop and this pictorial with Gao Yuanyuan for Elle China's December issue is no exception. The gorgeously dreamy images atop the majestic Paris Opera House are especially breathtaking. The actress and cover girl remarked that she felt extremely lucky to get a view of the city from this particular vantage point. I mean who wouldn't unless you have a fear of heights maybe.

The backdrop is spectacular! Could've done with less smoke though, for me at least. Love the picture of her in the mint pants. Laughing shots are the most beautiful in my opinion. :)
