Zhou Xun’s having an incredible year, and at the top of her game right now with both Golden Horse and Rooster nominations for two different movies, The Equation of Love and Death, and The Message. I really, really wanted a photoshoot with her and costar Li Bingbing together, but Li Bingbing, along with Alec Su and Huang Xiaoming are off promoting at the Pusan Film Festival (click for pics) where The Message is the closing film. Apparently, the film’s 6000 available tickets sold out in eight minutes at Pusan/Busan. There’s been talk of a prequel and sequel to the movie, but I usually don’t pay attention to that sort of rumor until it actually goes into production.
These shots for vogue were actually taken in France, for when she went to Chanel’s Haute Couture Show in July in Paris, with invite by Karl Lagerfield.
