Interesting brand campaign from Mercedes focusing solely on celebrity endorsement and feminine beauty (no car), featuring Chinese actress Zhang Zi Yi. Although her look is not exactly my cup of tea, I applaud her for her ultra mega success (but isn't there anyone else remotely cute who can kung-fu in a period gown?) .. unless she's a Fembot as I sometimes suspect. In that case, I applaud her for her acting.
BTW she is taken! Betrothed her heart and who knows what else to Aviv ‘Vivi’ Nevo, 41, venture capitalist, one of the largest shareholders of Time Warner, and mostly importantly, not Chinese. There's a big "in your face" to her countrymen (most of whom do not find her attractive and are therefore puzzled by her popularity in the West) now, isn't it?
For lil Ziyi's sake, I just hope he doesn't turn out to be like Raffaello Follieri, poor Anne Hathaway's hack of a boyfriend.
Now I ain't sayin' she a gold digger. But she ain't messin' wit no broke niggas. And she barely speaks English.
