Eye Candy : Zhou Xun for Grazia

Zhou Xun shows off her exuberant side in this colorful editorial for Grazia China. The charismatic 39 year old actress is currently filming "My Menopausal Girl" a romantic comedy about a woman dealing with premature menopause. I'd be curious to see how they find the humor in this type of situation. The film costars Tong Dawei as her boyfriend and is being directed by South Korean director Kwak Jae Yong who is best known for the popular 2001 hit My Sassy Girl which propelled Jeon Ji Hyun to fame. That was such a fun movie which I'd totally recommend. There was even an American remake. Everything about this editorial is just so fresh and pretty from her grooming to the styling. It's such a transformation from how she looked in this moody Marie Claire pictorial which was beautiful in a totally different way. In any case I love her hair in both.

  1. I loved My Sassy Girl! I watched it so many times and still found it really entertaining.. would be keeping an eye out for My Menopausal Girl (:

    Zhou Xun looks really young for a 39 year old! Even after taking into account how Asians seem to look younger. By the way, I saw in your bio that your fave book is The Little Prince- that's one of my favourites too! Would you have any other book recommendations?

    Have a good weekend ahead!


  2. There certainly is such a light and airy feel to this editorial. That last such is just stunning.

  3. So pretty! I can hardly believe she's 39! Looks so young

  11. Hi Rowena! Im shocked she is 39, she looks much younger and definitely she is really wonderful in this editorial (as the previous one u shared).

Hope you have a fab weekend my friend, hugs! xo

  15. Great outfits!


  16. Darling dresses and seriously how great is her skin?

  17. Wow I wish I look as fab as her when I reach 39. She looks like a girl in late 20's. Love..love..love her hair.

  18. oh my gosh she is not 39! she's so beautiful. and so awesome of her to take on such a role. i would imagine that certain actresses wouldn't want to take on roles that may look "bad".

  19. This woman is stunning! I love your site because it's the only one I follow with Asian beauty role-models! I need more! It's challenging being half Asian and half Caucasian when it comes to beauty inspiration! I love seeing both sides! Have a wonderful weekend, Rowena! I think I fixed my no-reply comment thing!

  20. I can not believe she's 39, she looks flawless! She has such a girly, pretty style!

    I have a Benefit makeup set ("The Rich is Back" collab with Matthew Williamson) to giveaway on my blog, I'd love if you could have a look :)

  38. She's gorgeous actress c: and I can't believe she's almost 40!

  39. My menopausal girl? That sounds so funny/grossly in depth. Thanks for commenting on my blog with a few details about you! I'm Korean but I don't speak the language very well. Funnily enough, my Mum says all Korean dramas are predictable and my parents are loving all the American dramas I am recommending. You say the Chinese ones are predictable and you're enjoying the Korean ones, so maybe I should check out a few Chinese ones and see if I think the same. I live in England but they don't do too many dramas - I absolutely love American ones and my faves are Grey's Anatomy, The Good Wife, One Tree Hill, Friends….ahhh too many to mention! I'm sure I will be doing a post on them soon. Haven't tried out Desperate Housewives yet but something tells me I will enjoy.

  40. Great post dear as always:)
    Love your blog!

  41. Love this post, Rowena. She does look very different in both, separately, but equally enchanting. Thanks for sharing :))

    Have an awesome week!

    Big hugs.

  42. I can't get over the fact tat she is 39! She is so baby faced! These Asian celebs seem to really know how to take care of their looks...I wish I can access their secrets and hopefully it's natural...

  43. No way - 39?! And yes, I loved My Sassy Girl too. I've actually been told that I look (act) like that girl too - eeps!

  44. I adore the lipstick she is wearing! Such a bright and colourful editorial, very spring appropriate! :)
