Guan Xiaotong takes the cover of BAZAAR Men China – June 2020 Issue, and she looks gorgeous as always.

img_5687img_5689img_5688img_5686img_5684img_5681img_5683img_5685img_5682I love the metallic/abstract look and makeup on Guan Xiaotong. It perfectly suits the concept of phone advertisement. My focus is more on her that the phone because she is serving subtle and effortless looks.

Sun Yi for SoFigaro Magazine. She is one of those who doesn’t even have to try. She has a natural and relaxed charm to her.

 

img_2586img_2587AOA’s Seolhyun looks stunning in this shoot for Allure Korea. I love the incorporation of fruits. I hardly get attracted to pink, but this got my attention. The way her hair was pulled back, allowing her face to have all focus and the soft makeup look was a great choice as well.

 

Minah looks lovely with her rosy cheeks in this photoshoot for COSMOPOLITAN Korea.

And last on this list is Xuan Lu for Aida Fashion. Whatever colour editing that is going on in this set of photos is pure magic. I love the brown-goldish tone they used. I have seen many of Xuan Lu’s photoshoots, and she always slays.

My Pictorial|Poster Faves: Elegance and Extravagance

I am back with another set of my favourite pictorials/posters. I have a theme for this post. I tried my best to pick pictures that gave of a mysterious, extravagant and elegant feel. So I hope you all enjoy these new sets of photos.

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

First on my list is the one and only Zhao Liying, also known as Zanilia Zhao. 0dc6e2d4-c89b-432b-bc85-ebb86b34947b-28876-0000175e883203bbe7fbcf33-e689-4909-b0f7-d76808de3ec2-28876-0000175e4eb04fdb019ebe3d-7773-4719-a864-48b21f253944-28876-0000175e8e3a4643

I was so mesmerized when I first saw these photos of Zanilia. She was photographed by the brilliant and creative Chinese visual artist – Chen Man.19e8b048-25bd-4245-8ed1-70d1a75f53e6-45295-0000255eba7dc63b

Guan Xiaotong features in this Tang Dynasty inspired photoshoot for Harper’s BAZAAR China. She almost looks like a painting in the second picture.

Chinese actress Qi Wei models the vintage-styled qipao collection from Muzkin. I really love her hair and makeup for this shoot. I have plans to watch her latest drama – No Secrets. It is a remake of the Korean drama – I Hear Your Voice.

Next up are the promo photos of Liu Yifei for Mulan.

This photoshoot by Harper’s BAZAAR actually mirrors the ballad of Hua Mulan. Apparently, each photo represents a line of the song. There are more pictures from this shoot, but these are the ones that really stood out for me.

How could someone be so beautiful? 36ec3d53-56ec-4386-86c0-b4a36d504971-45295-00002556f5f54423e5d29096-4d67-4d8e-a70e-5885024dee2b-45295-000025575c14582777eed5ba-83f6-4300-8434-f55f1b4e0089-45295-00002556fb9757a6685f6530-9ca6-4a72-949e-0565affe0533-45295-0000255716342b78Can I just point out that Ni Ni is definitely one of the most gorgeous women I have ever seen? The lady is stunning in every way. Even when dressed casually, she still looks great. Also, Chen Man once again brought her brilliance to this creative shoot for Harper’s BAZAAR.

That is all I have for this post. I tried not to make it too long. 💕💕💕

 

 

Ivy Shao – STARS AND MOON: Song Of The Week

So I finally decided to bring back my weekly music specials.

The chosen song for this week is Stars and Moon by Ivy ShaoThe music and lyrics for this song were written by Victor Lau, and the singer is the Taiwanese actress Ivy Shao. “Stars and Moon” is an official soundtrack for the Chinese drama Sweet Combat. The show stars Lu Han (former EXO member) and Guan Xiaotong as leads (fun fact: the lead actors are actually a real couple).

From the very first time I heard this song being played in the drama, I was intrigued. “Stars and Moon” is a very emotional song. It speaks about hope and the zeal to never retreat. This was the emotion I got from the song even before searching up the English lyrics. Here is the English translation:

Verse –

  • The star is scared that once she blinks, the moon will disappear and be gone
  • The moon holds her hand and promises to stay by her side
  • The star and the moon agree to always accompany each other
  • Illuminating the world together
  • Until the day that the moon suddenly goes back on his promise

Chorus –

  • The star hangs on the horizon. The moon is no longer there
  • She does not wish to cry and chooses not to fall
  • The star no longer yearns. She decides to illuminate the world alone
  • Shining in the night without the moon
  • On dark nights without you (I’ll keep on shining)

My favourite part of this song is definitely the chorus. I just love the message that no matter what you go through, you have to believe in yourself and keep on moving. Ivy always impresses when she sings. She might not have the most powerful voice, but she sure knows how to spark emotions from her audience.

I look forward to hearing more songs from her because she is astounding both as an actress and a singer.

That is my short write-up for this song. Till my next post, take care
