Eye Candy : Vogue China 10th Anniversary Issue

Zhao Wei by Mario Testino for Vogue China

Vogue China celebrates it's 10th anniversary issue with a special icons pictorial by famed fashion photographer Mario Testino featuring some of China's top actresses and models including Zhao Wei, Li BingBing, Zhou Xun, Zhang Ziyi, Tang Wei, Liu Wen and Du Juan. The Golden Era of Hollywood themed editorial is lavishly glamorous with a mix of modern and retro touches. The result is unsurprisingly gorgeous and I really like how these images go beyond mere portraits as Testino had his models "perform in character" in front of the camera. My favorite one has to be this first photo of Zhao Wei because it's so playful and beautiful at the same time. Do any of them speak to you?

I share your thoughts about this editorial Rowena, images speak themselves and have something glam and irresistible inside. Zhao Wei is also my fav, she is truly stunning! Happy Monday, hugs! xo

Fantastic photographs! Mario Testino is such an idol. If you love fashion photography, I watched a great documentary called 'Bill Cunningham New York' recently. I highly recommend. X


May Cho said...

I'm in love! Zi Yi looks amazing as usual. of course, but my favourite shots have to come from Bing Bing; she looks exquisite. The photographer has done such a wonderful job at capturing hollywood glam, and I'm loving it!


Ivana Split said...

The photographs are really exceptional. My favourites are the first two and the last two photographs but they are all really wonderful. I like how all the ladies are wearing white (or at least that is how it looks on these bw photographs) ....Really all of these gowns and looks are so glam and feminine.

Love this photo series, they're all so beautiful! The concept is interesting too, kind of an East meets West thing, like the Met Gala (China: Through The Looking Glass) this year!

A Very Sweet Blog said...

I love that era! Very glamorous wardrobe, styling and makeup!


I'm really into movement in photography in general, those are the most appealing ones... at least to me! Haha! It's interesting to see how a model/actress play with fashion by posing a bit different than usual. :)
The black and white photos are my fave!

Hi Rowena,

Saw this some time back but didn't really have a chance to write proper, so here I am now.

There is something really strange about this editorials, they seem quite touched up but yet, still manage to look really realistic and stunning, actually! It has that very ethereal yet classic kind of quality to it, very appealing. Am not too sure I am making any sense here haha

Asian beauty always fascinates me. They have the most alluring qualities in them! Love love love this one, thanks for sharing!

Big hugs,

Vanessa N said...

AWWW HELL YES, Golden Era of Hollywood x Chinese women??? Yes yes yes so much eye candy and decadence ;-;

These photos/portraits are so moody, and Li BingBing's dress though--gon' needs that *-*
