Photoshoot Friday: Almost bridal

Thank Zhang Jingchu, because her photoshoot with Bazaar Jewelry saves this round-up from being another bridal photoshoot Friday. On the other hand, Kitty Zhang Yuqi is in full bridal style, with flowers and glitter for her bodice; Li Xiaoran‘s shoot brims with flowers. Meanwhile, Jing Tian‘s vermillion lipstick is a nice contrast to the lush countryside her photo shoot took place in, while model Zhang Xinyuan‘s photoshoot is by the ocean and utterly gorgeous (though you really can’t see any of her face). Look below the cut for more pictures. Continue reading

Look below the cut for more pictures! Continue reading

On the other hand, Bai Baihe is thoroughly modern (anyone else super excited for her upcoming movie Facelift Diary?) How  many of these actresses will become as “red (popular)” in China as the clothes they wear?  Look under the cut for more pictures!
