As anyone who has visited my blog for awhile must know by now, i have a love affair with the Chinese dress 旗袍 .....so below are some pics of HK Actresses in Chinese Dresses.... Hsu Chi 舒淇, Taiwanese actress in Hong Kong wearing a Chinese dress at an awards ceremony.
Joey Yung 容祖兒, Hong Kong singer/actress wearing a Chinese dress somewhere...hahaha, don't know where actually...Cecilia Cheung 張柏芝﹐ Hong Kong actress, getting ready for her TV drama, 'Zhou Xuan' 周旋 about the famous 1930s,40s Shanghai star...
Doing my part to promote the beauty and elegance of the Qi Pao/Cheongsam/Chinese Dress around the world....did i ever tell my readers that i am planning to learn how to make chinese dresses in the future and become a cheongsam/chinese dress tailor?? Hahaha, not as a profession of cos, but i want to do it as part of my hobby and open my very own chinese dress boutique...

滑翔翼:我 從 小 就 對 旗 袍 很 感 興 趣 。 。 覺 得 它 能 充 份 展 現 東 方 女 性 美。 。 現 在 都 有 在 設 計 ﹐ 但 當 然 是 不 專 業 的 啦 。 。 你 要 加 入 ﹖ 好 呀 。 歡 迎 歡 迎 。 。 你 也 可 以 在 自 己 的 部 落 格 貼 些 自 己 的 設 計 或 旗 袍 照 片 呀 。 。

I hope your love affair does not INCLUDE you wearing these dresses, right? ha ha hee hee

hcpen 彭皓全 said...

xavier: yes, 花样年华 qi paos are my favourite kind as they accurately show 1960s style chinese dresses which have a high collar, tight fit, and knee length hem...cecilia's qi pao is of the 1930s style...

Beautiful! I love ladies in qi pao... So elegant. It's gaining popularity in the West too...

hcpen 彭皓全 said...

alex: yes!!! I LOVE women in qi paos. They look simply exquisite...elegant yet sexy...sexy yet modest..i think its actually much more popular in the West than in Chinese-speaking areas...apparently, Western and Japanese women buy more qi paos than chinese women...sad...

Qi paos really are graceful and elegant, as these pictures show. They are enjoying great popularity in Europe right now, so hopefully the whole world is catching on to their beauty!

zhonghuarising: Totally agree:)
