The Wayne Wong directed women epic film SNOW FLOWER AND THE SECRET FAN caught attention as Li Bingbing and Gianna Jun Ji-Hyun earlier appeared on the July U.S. edition of VOGUE. The most recent time Asian film stars were on the pages of U.S. VOGUE was six years ago with MEMOIR OF A GEISHA's Gong Li and Zhang Ziyi.
Recently Li Bingbing and Jun Ji-Hyun appeared in a Mainland fashion magazine cover as well. In the film their tragic lives made people cry. This couple also were much more open to satisfy the audience's imagination. Li Bingbing not only put her arm around Jun Ji-Hyun's shoulder but also wore a transparent silk top and black undergarment in an embrace with Jun Ji-Hyun. They even lay on the carpet in elegant clothing and played with flowers.
Starting July 8, the film will be released in almost 40 nations around the world and land in North America on July 15. Li Bingbing and Jun Ji-Huun in mid July will head to the U.S. to attend the New York and Los Angeles premieres with producer Wendi Deng and director Wayne Wong.
