I was going to let Asian Games in Guangzhou slide this time. Is there anything interesting about China hosting an international event besides grand opening, traffic jam, badly treated volunteers, uncivilized behaviors, sky rocketing real estate price of wherever they took place, and of course those same old political debates?
Yes, Guangzhou surprised me with the dress designed for the award giving ceremony ladies. The light colored dress, designed in traditional Qipao style, looks more like an extra long and full-covered swim suit. It covers every inch, yet reveals everything. Human body (really, women’s) is the most beautiful creation of the nature (or God) and designers should not be afraid to show it. Qipao is a perfect kind of dress to show women’s charming curve without showing too much-a typical Chinese beauty. But I think there should be a line. Lady in a well made silk Qipao is elegant, girl wrapped in this costume is seductive and highly inappropriate in this international events. These girls are some one’s girlfriend, friend, sister and daughter and now they are being check out by
creepy athletes, judges, reporters and audience around the world. If you are also a Chinese doesn’t that hurt you a little?
