My friends say that the Chinese models who are huge here, like Liu Wen and Fei Fei Sun, aren’t considered great beauties in China. They’re my faves tho so maybe I have that western gaze myself.
yeah i do too like my mom likes fan bing bing and hates all my faves ie gong li. at least she thinks beyonce’s pretty. she says janet jackson + whitney houston are considered beautiful in china too “for black girls” but thats a whole other discussion
i was watching memoirs of a geisha and my mom stopped behind me during the scene in which michelle yeoh tells zhang ziyi to brush against her client’s leg but pass it off as an accident. i looked at my mom and we both laughed lmao
