Bingbing Li and Gianna Jun Pose as Lesbians on the U.S. Version of Vogue

The epic movie “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan” directed by the Chinese-American Hollywood director Wayne Wang and starred by Chinese actress Bingbing Li, Korean actress Gianna Jun and Australian actor Hugh Jackman is officially unveiled in China on June 24th. From July 8, the film will be shown to the public in Britain, France, Italy, Japan, South Korea and nearly 40 countries, and then be introduced in North America on July 15 to carry out the global promotion of this big movie.

While is movie is preparing to sweep the world, Bingbing Li and Gianna Jun recently pose as lesbians for the U.S. Version of Vogue. The photographer who shoots their photo is the world's most expensive Annie Leibovitz. This indicates how Vogue thinks of this movie. It is worthy to mention that the last Asian movie star on U.S. version of Vogue was Gong Li when she starred in “Memoirs of a Geisha” six years ago. 

To match the film’s lesbian theme, Vogue chooses “Eastern promise” as the theme, and divides the shooting into two parts with accordingly modern costumes and ancient costumes. Vogue asks the two females pose as lesbians again to continue their play in the movie. In the modern part, Bingbing Li turns into this bossy girl with full with domineering but still feminine temperament while Gianna Jun leans lightly against her with delicate gesture. In the ancient part, they wear costume sitting at both ends of the wooden tables at, hand-in-hand, surrounded by very Oriental mystery.

“Snow Flower and the Secret Fan” won’t be shown in the theatre of North America till July 15, but it already has many American fans. It is reported that the original novel of the same name from Chinese writer Lisa Kwong has been on the “New York Times” bestseller list again after its first sales myth four years ago. In Hollywood, only super blockbusters such as the “Lord of the Rings” and “The Da Vinci Code” This super large can enjoy this phenomenon of novel re-selling before the movie is on. This shows how expectant American audience is to this film.

When interviewed by US Weekly, the Hollywood actor Tom Hanks admits that “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan” is one of three films he expects most this year. We are not sure if these kind words of the Chairman of the Oscar voters will help on the movie winning shot on Oscar.
