吴奇隆TD: 長的像吳奇隆了不起啊?你再瞪我,拖出去……擺好

How many wax dummies of Nicky Wu do we need? Well, I’m not complaining, even though the dummy doesn’t even look that much like him… as long as they give us Bu Bu Jing Qing (步步惊情) when they said they would. Just twenty days away, everyone!

You think you’re great because you look like Nicky Wu? If you keep staring at me, I’ll have you dragged out and……… arranged properly.

胡歌: 明天阿苏就要被蔺晨收拾了 今天赶紧出来放放风 药可以不吃 雪不可不赏

What better way to start off this week’s Weibo Wednesday round-up than with pretty Hu Ge? An unofficial trailer for his upcoming drama Nirvana in Fire (琅琊榜) was leaked yesterday, and although the video doesn’t really reveal much (people flouncing! people walking! people darting around with swords!), at least it gives us some nice shots of Hu Ge.

Tomorrow Ah Su [Hu Ge's character] is going to get sorted out by Lin Chen. Today, I hurriedly went out to get some fresh air. Medicine you don’t necessarily have to eat, but snow you cannot not appreciate.

Fan Bingbing for Marie Claire

Don’t be fooled by the cotton-candy pink of this magazine cover (which, actually, managed to pick a pretty decent picture!); the rest of this photo shoot was fairly dark and edgy. From the snappy way she’s holding it, you’d think that the retro camera Fan Bingbing brandishes was a gun. If you want to see her in a color other than black…well, you could wait for her 260 costumes as Wu ZetianContinue reading

Fan Bingbing has 260 outfits as The Empress of China


Fan Bingbing, in 1/260 of the outfits she has for this series,  demonstrating that literacy really is the key to changing your social status.

If you were rich and gorgeous, what else would you do other than pour 300 million RMB (other than investing in 75 more Dad? movies)  onto a series with 260 costumes so you can cosplaying the last Empress reagent of China (the latest one being you, of course)?   Fan Bingbing certainly did. Although the spending for her upcoming series series, The Empress of China 武则天, might be a little over extravagant, I’m certainly not complaining given how pretty these stills are.

More stills below, where she’s gorgeous even in peasant outfits!

Fan Bingbing is ‘The Empress of China’


Since she’s already wow’ed the world with her dragon robe dress, Fan Bingbing might as well as be The Empress of China.

Concubine Yang vs. Wu Zetian, who do you like her better as?


She might’ve passed for Concubine Yang with this outfit if she weren’t so skinny.

Weibo Wednesday: Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2014! Before we get started with the New Year, let’s take a look back at the final week of 2013 on Weibo…

夢想家林志穎: Kimi昨天睡前还担心家里没烟囱,圣诞老公公要怎么把礼物送进来,今天一大早就起床跑到客厅,为了早点能看圣诞礼物到底送来了没,看到他刚睡醒兴奋又灿烂的笑容,满足的拆著礼物,爸比知道不管工作再辛苦再忙碌只要能看到你快乐幸福的笑容,一切都是值得的。

Did you get what you wanted for Christmas? Jimmy Lin‘s son, Kimi Lin, definitely seems to have been excited for presents! Is that an Iron Man Mickey Mouse behind him?

Before going to bed yesterday, Kimi was worried that our house didn’t have a chimney and how could Santa Claus send the presents inside. Early this morning, he got out of bed and ran to the living room in order to see earlier if the Christmas presents had arrived or not. After seeing his just-woke-up, excited, and splendid smile, and him contently tearing apart presents, Daddy knows that no matter how tough or busy work can be, it will all be worth it if I can see your happy and joyful smile.
