Chinese Celebrities Glam Out for #TencentVideoAll-StarNight 2020

I do my best to resist posting two pictorial faves on the same day, but I couldn’t hold back after seeing all the stunning photos of celebrities at Tencent Video All-Star Night 2020. Due to the number of pictures I have to share, I will be using the slideshow format, + I might also have to split this post into two parts. Enjoy😍

(Please Note: none of these images are mine. I got them from official magazine websites and social media sites.)

Dilraba Dilmurut served queen vibes for her first outfit, and the second look was equally beautiful –


Zhao Lusi was the prettiest angel with her first look. Then she went traditional for her performance outfit –


Wang Yibo arrived at the event dripped in Chanel. I believe he had three different looks, but I’ll just be sharing my two favourites –


Xiao Zhan came through!!! I love the way they took his pictures. The background and lighting was perfect + he looked stunning in every shot –


Zhao Liying had three dress changes, but my favourite is her first outfit: the gorgeous black + gold embroidered Georges Hobeika gown. The blue Dior gown was also a great look for her – 


Victoria Song served legs + Chanel for the red carpet. She is captivating in the black gown –


Yang Zi was giving me fairy vibes with her gown and aesthetics for these pictures – 


Arthur Chen had two looks for the event, and he suited up in both – 


Leo Luo also graced the event in a suit, and as expected, he looked great – 


Wang Zhuocheng probably didn’t change outfits because this is the only look I found for him – 

Bambi Zhu stayed within the standard two change of outfits. I prefer her in the brown ball gown – 


Tiffany Tang is also another celeb that impressed me more with her second look. She severed sparkling beauty queen vibes –


Liang Jie served classic beauty with her first look. The white gown did justice to her body, and I couldn’t stop staring –


Second to last on this 1st part compilation is Ryan Ding, and he got quite creative with his photos by including his prepping stage – 


To close, I have Kris Wu’s two looks for the event, and my favourite is the black blazer outfit –

A look At Dilireba’s Upcoming Chinese Historical Drama – ‘The Long Ballad’

I first saw the character posters for The Long Ballad (CHANGGE XING) last month, and I noticed that a lot of my favourite actors were in it. From Dilraba Dilmurat to Zhao Lusi, Alen Fang, Liu Hai Kun and Leo Wu. Since they were all familiar faces, including a new handsome face – Liu Yu Ning, I decided to keep an eye out for a trailer because that would determine if I’m going to commit or not. img_2379_originalimg_2380_originalimg_2381_originalBefore we dive into the trailer, let’s check out the basic summary of this drama. I know it’s adapted from a manhua called Xia Da.

Synopsis: Li Chang Ge’s family was murdered by Li Shi Min, the Emperor of Tang, during the Xuanwu Gate Incident. She heads to Shuo Province under the guise of a man with hopes of raising an army to kill Li Shi Min and avenge her family’s death. However, as a captain of the Shuo Province army in Zhangzhou, she loses a siege to the Eastern Turkic Khaganate General Ashina Sun, who takes her to serve him as a personal military strategist.

The first trailer was released last week. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have English subs, but I think if you’ve watched a good number of Chinese dramas, you should get the gist. This is also my first time watching it.

I think people who enjoy a stable balance of Wuxia (martial arts) and romance will definitely love this drama. Personally, I am 70/30 right now. I’ll wait for the second trailer before making my final decision. I do find the costumes beautiful. Take a look at the full character posters released by Tencent – img_0666_originalimg_0667_originalimg_0668_originalimg_0670_originalimg_0669_original

img_0671_originalimg_1890_originalimg_1889_originalimg_1894_originalimg_1887_originalimg_1895_originalimg_1892_originalimg_1888_originalimg_1893_originalThey used a lot of calm and neutral colours, but the designs still look grand and elegant. Also, since this is a wuxia series, the army attire + cinematography promises to be gorgeous. If you don’t know already, one of the primary reasons why I watch Historical dramas is to feast my eyes on lovely traditional attires and scenery.😊😊

Tencent has not announced an official release date for this series, but it will premiere this year.

That’s my quick take on The Long Ballad (CHANGGE XING) for now. Does anyone plan to watch this drama?

img_2555Chen Yuqi is sparkling in this photo. All these actresses are making me want to finally close my eyes and bye a bright red lipstick. I have never really been a fan of bright coloured lipsticks, but I will admit that red is an enchanting colour on everyone.
