Gigi Leung and Michelle Chen: Who looks better?
Following revelations that Taiwanese actress Michelle Chen will be playing ‘Xiao Long Nu’ (Little Dragon Girl) in a remake of period drama, Return of the Condor Heroes, Hong Kong singer-actress Gigi Leung revealed her ‘Chang’e’ look in upcoming period movie, The Monkey King yesterday.
In her photo caption, Gigi wrote: “I wish everyone a happy Mid-Autumn and hope you like my new look!”
Shortly after uploading her photo, the 37-year-old actress’s demure look received many praises from netizens which is a stark contrast to the reactions Michelle received when she released her ‘Xiao Long Nu’ photo earlier this month. Back then, Michelle was condemned for being too fat to play the legendary character.
Most fans online have unanimously agreed that Gigi’s period look is “prettier than Michelle’s”. A netizen even added, “Xiao Long Nu (Michelle) should learn from Chang’e (Gigi).”
