Tang Wei’s the tomboy-turned-charmer

Tang Wei who was selected from more than 10,000 actresses to appear in Ang Lee’s Lust, Caution (Winner of the 2007 Golden Lion award), co-starring Tony Leung Chiu-Wai, Joan Chen, and Wang Lee-Hom, revealed that filming the movie has made her more feminine. In private, the retro-looking star preferred wearing T-shirt and jeans. It was only after she was cast as Wang Jia Zhi that upon the director’s request, she began to don the chinese traditional costume qipao and practise being graceful and feminine.




 Besides being praised widely for her skillful acting, she is also commended for her fashion sense. The clothes she wore to various film festivals or press conferences were all appropriate and fitting, instead of wrapping herself blindly in brand names. No fashion faux pas for this beautiful star.


 It’s true that Tang Wei was lucky to be chosen by Ang Lee as the female lead in his movie but I’d say the reverse is true as well. Ang Lee is fortunate to have found such a talented star as Tang Wei.

    Yes, she acted so well in this movie. Acting under the direction of LEE Ang and with Tony Leung was a challenge for her.
    The story was so tough, so hard and she was the central point of the film. So much tension without an instant of rest. For us French people, our nation knew the same problems with Germans soldiers. There had been so much love stories between French girls and German soldiers.

    Go on TANG Wei !

    Qipaos derived from the Manchu conquerers, have a short history of less than 300 years and has been mistakenly considered the traditional Han Chinese garment.
