Zhang Ziyi in tie-dyed Christian Dior in Berlin: gorgeous or not so great?

Here are some lovely new photos of Tony Leung and Zhang Ziyi at the Berlin Film Festival yesterday, where they premiered their new Wong Kar Wai film, The Grandmaster. We haven’t discussed Zhang since last year’s major “Seriously, is she the most expensive call girl in the world?” scandal, and we rarely (if ever?) discuss Tony Leung, who is arguably one of the biggest and most beloved movie stars in the world. You can read more about the film here – European critics are getting their first look at it now, in Berlin.

First, let’s talk about Zhang. Did she survive last year’s scandal? I think she did, but then again, I wasn’t paying close attention. I think the fact that she’s at the Berlin Film Festival in support of a film with Tony Leung and Wong Kar Wai is probably proof enough that her career hasn’t taken a hit. As for her style… well… I like Zhang. A lot. I think she’s ridiculously pretty, with a ballerina-like figure, small, strong and athletic. She usually wears an interesting blend of high-end, established designers and up-and-coming labels. The green tie-dyed looking dress is Christian Dior. Shocker, right? I kind of hate it. I kind of hate the black dress she wore to the photocall too.

As for Tony Leung… so handsome. So ageless! He’s 50 years old. Crazy. I wish he would stop making weird faces on the red carpet though. And I wish he wouldn’t roll up his pant legs! WTF? You’re at the Berlin Film Festival, you’re not going clam digging.

    Tony Leung is MAH Asian husband, back off y’all!!

    I gotta say I actually like what Zhang is wearing on the photo call pics, it’s just the way she poses that makes it look a tad awkward. As for Tony, with the pants legs rolled up he looks like an adorable hobbit on those pics 😀

    Can’t wait for the new film, I’m a huge fan of the Leung/Kar Wai duo.

    • LAK says:

      I think not Ms Kay.

      That’s my forever above all others husband.

      Methinks a duel at dawn!

      Pistols or swords? Your choice.

      ….But seriously, I can’t wait to see this film too. Wong Kar Wai is a genuis.

  2. Riana says:

    Oh I adore the rolled up pants leg, too adorable!

    Ziyi looks lovely, she has a grace about her that makes what would be a disaster on someone else look charming. I’m glad her career is going strong, I’ve always liked her.

  3. sasa says:

    Love both looks! She does fashion well.

    • Julie says:

      Me too! I think she is like the Asian Diane Kruger fashionwise.

      • Penny says:

        I always think of Fan Bing Bing as my Asian Dian Kruger: I’ve never seen anything she’s done, but I know she slays it on the red carpet and gets regular “werqs” from TLo.

      • sasa says:

        Penny, Fan Bing Bing is maybe my favorite fashion girl out there. And I’ve also seen nothing that she’s in. lol She really known her clothes, IMO she’s braver and more interesting than Kruger (who also dresses really well but is less of a chameleon)

      Looove the green dior!!!

  4. Joiq says:

    Tony Leung…The Lover…all I have to say..
    As for Zhang, I actually really like both of these looks. She definitely pulls them off. I don’t think anyone just can.

  5. Amelia says:

    This is so strange, I was just watching Memoirs of a Geisha yesterday and wondering what Zhang was up to after last year.
    *Twilight Zone theme*
    Blimey, he looks good for 50.

  6. Lem says:

    I find her beautiful. My husband drools like a school boy at anything in which she is so lovely while kicking arse.
    I expected more to come out of that ‘highest paid wh0re’ scandal. I am totally ignorant of the Asian way but to think she had to get down with the get down and Jackie / Jet had to be bedfellows with the Forefathers or Triad or what have you…
    I’ve got sick kids again today, if anyway has links for me, I’ve time to read them.

  7. annabelle says:

    I like the green, minus the aggressive darting in the nipple area.

    The black dress is cute too, though it looks like a total K Stew dress and I don’t love the black pantyhose.

    Lovely couple.

  8. fabgrrl says:

    Not crazy about the dresses, but that woman could make a paper sack look good! So lovely.

  9. Micki says:

    I like the green dress and think that the colour suits her a lot. The domina dress is just meh.

  10. emmie_a says:

    No to both dresses. The gown is an awkward length and the leather dress looks like an 80’s cast-off.

  11. lamamu says:

    Both looks are totally fab!!

  12. Gah, she’s just so beautiful. One of the most beautiful girls I’ve ever seen.

  13. T.C. says:

    Zhang Ziyi is pretty but that Dior dress does nothing for her. Ugly color and the pointy boob area is just a big no. She looks so much better in the black dress at the photo call. I don’t think the scandal hurt her because most Americans don’t know who she is or don’t recongnize her face. The scandal wasn’t as big and getting weekly coverage from the tabloids like other scandals.

    I like Tony Leung’s style. Yes the rolled up pant leg adds personality so thumbs up to both outfits. The only thing I would change about him is to pluck those misbehaving eyebrows. Surprise Kaiser missed it she hates bushy eyebrows.

    • Chordy says:

      I feel like Dior is trying to make fetch happen with this new boobage they’re doing. I get what’s happening with trying to modernize a vintage silhouette, but it comes across as try-hardy to me.

  14. Buckwild says:

    Something about her face gives me a similar feeling as looking at Marion Cotillard. Feminine and gamine? They’re both lovely. And Tony Leung! Holy hell he is well maintained! How does a 50 yr old still have a boyish charm? Crazy.

  15. c'est la vie says:

    Tony looks great. Always does. So does Ziyi. She looks doll like.

    Not liking the Dior with the bilious shade of green and the tie dye though. Too much going on there.

    Otherwise, she’s her usual beautiful self.
    But she needs a better stylist. They would keep her away from the leather too.

  16. CC says:

    Asians are really great at looking young as a rule, especially women. Plus they’re really pretty. And a lot are smart also. Gawd, I think I’m typecasting, but still… I wouldn’t mind being asian, TBH.

    The dress is meh, but I’m not a clotheshorse.

  17. lucy2 says:

    He’s 50? Wow!

    I don’t like that dress at all, but she’s so pretty she almost pulls it off, in a Cate Blanchett/Marion Cotillard kind of way.

  18. ladybert62 says:

    She is pretty – he is handsome – that is the only positive things I can find – clothes are horrible and the rolled up pants leg – yuk.

  19. Merman says:

    Tony Leung <3 I've got to see "In the mood for love" again!
    Ziyi is beautiful as always.

  20. Christina says:

    There was a discussion a while back about stars who are loved abroad, but really disliked in their own country (Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem were mentioned). AFAIK, Zhang is one of those. She’s popular in the English speaking world, but strongly disliked in China. At least that’s what every Chinese person I’ve ever met has told me.

  21. aston martin says:

    She, Gabby Union, Freida Pinto and Christina Hendricks have the most beautiful skin I’ve ever seen. Luminous. Touched by the gods. I’m practically gay over their skin.

    The dress totally works on her! It’s such a fun contrast to her classical beauty, too.

    You know who that dress does NOT work on? Me. I bought a black and white similar version last year because it was $15.00 at Ross and I was feeling bold. I wore it to my friend’s gospel choir premiere, and even amongst a colorful crowd, I stood out like a bad ink spill.

  22. j.eyre says:

    She is ridiculously beautiful. Mesmerizing, in fact.

    He I am not familiar with. Must set about correcting that.

  23. Mara says:

    Beautiful woman and she looks lovely in both dresses .

  24. KellyinSeattle says:

    She is beautiful but I think the dress is ugly, and I don’t like the white socks and those shoes look.
    Her skin is fantastic! Plus, she has perfect boobs.

  25. Caroline says:

    I like her.
    In China, Ziyi is considered to be..over.
    (partly due to the embezzelment scandal and partly due to the white boyfriend situation etcetc)

  26. Victoria1 says:

    Why did the prostitution scandal die down again? It was pretty juicy.
    The dress and the shoes… No.
    The guy looks great for 50.

  27. Grace says:

    If China doesn’t want her America is absolutely okay with being her home country 🙂 That government should not pass judgment on anyone as shady as it acts.

  28. Mazunte says:

    I think she looks amazing! She’s so pretty! I love her dress and fur. I just don’t like the shoes.
    Tony Leung is my Asian crush.

  29. Beatriz says:

    sigh, Tony Leung…excuse me while I wipe my drool away…

  30. A Fan says:

    Beautiful! Everything looks great on her – the cut, colour, style. Well, everything except the shoes – those are truly awful.

    (please stop the cement blocks for feet trend…someone…please…anyone…)

  31. Ash says:

    To me that dress looks like the rind of a watermelon. I think it’s hideous. She’s gorgeous from the neck up though.
