Golden Globe and BAFTA-nominated actress, Zhang Ziyi, has been appointed a Global Brand Ambassador for Shiseido‘s Clé de Peau Beauté. In a new campaign premiering this fall, Ziyi will represent La Crème, the brand’s iconic illuminating product which moisturizes and retexturizes skin while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and laxity.  She joins Amanda Seyfried and Felicity Jones, who have also represented Clé de Peau Beauté.

Following her debut in Zhang Yimou’s The Road Home, which won the Silver Bear Award at the 2000 Berlin Film Festival, Ziyi has gone on to appear in more than 20 movies including the internationally acclaimed Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, House of Flying Daggers, and Memoirs of a Geisha. Her role in 2013’s The Grandmaster earned her 12 Best Actress Awards, making her the most awarded actress for a single film.

Yukari Suzuki, Chief Brand Officer of Clé de Peau Beauté says of the collaboration: “We have long admired Zhang Ziyi for her accomplishments and her dedication. Her beauty, warmth and generosity bring radiance to the world around her. Zhang Ziyi perfectly embodies the values of Clé de Peau Beauté because of her spirit and timeless elegance.”

PIRELLI 2017: A RETURN TO HOLLYWOOD GLAMOUR!

Sunday, August 28th, 2016

Pirelli NicoleWhile the 2016 Pirelli Calendar shared  diversity in its aesthetic and focused on the strength of its subjects (Annie Leibovitz’s subjects included Serena Williams, Yoko Ono, Patti Smith, and Amy Schumer), the 2017 edition marks a return to Hollywood glamour.  Photographer Peter Lindburgh chose an all–star line-up, which includes, Lupita Nyong’o, Jessica Chastain, Uma Thurman, Nicole Kidman (above), Lea Seydoux, Robin Wright, Zhang Ziyi, Helen Mirren, Rooney Mara, Penelope Cruz, Julianne Moore, Charlotte Rampling, Alicia Vikander, Kate Winslet, Jessica Chastain, and “special guest,” Anastacia Ignatova, a professor at Moscow State University.

Speaking with Vogue, Lindburgh called the shoot, “a love song to the women I really know and really like, and there’s no exception.”  The German photographer joked that he cast “Everyone in this calendar, at one point in my life, I wanted to marry, and I didn’t have the balls to ask them!”  Lindburgh shot his first Pirelli Calendar in 1996, choosing supermodels of the day.  Yet, in 2002, he changed the iconic brand’s landscape by casting Hollywood actresses (in this shoot he featured ingenues such as Selma Blair, Brittany Murphy, Jaime King, and Julia Stiles).  So why return to actresses, not models, this time?  “The one big difference between actresses and models is that models are fixed to the camera, and actresses never look at a camera if you don’t force them. They learn their whole life to be there and forget there’s a camera. That’s a fundamental difference.”
