With the recent drama Prince of Orchid Hills/Lanling Wang coming to an end, most viewers have already reconciled themselves with Feng Shaofeng’s pretty-boy general. But on that note, which other actors might have made a convincing case for feminine beauty? (Sorry, Jet Li, and Jackie Chan. I can’t look at your female forms without wanting to laugh). Take a look below to see a selection cross-dressing men in Chinese entertainment. Wallace Huo dresses up as a Victorian lady (and puckers up for a kiss as his wuxia counterpart stares in disbelief). Nicolas Tse sports two braids and what looks like a schoolgirl outfit. Throw in Tony Leung, Du Haitao, Sammul Chan, Li Yugang, and Eason Chan, and it’s a field day – you’ll find a list of contenders to be the fairest of them all.
Although, if you’ll remember this music video (where Ma Tianyu, after being ditched by Deng Sha for her best friend on their wedding day, dresses up as a woman to seduce the said girlfriend, in the end winning back his own fiance/girlfriend…) you’ll know who the winner is before we even begin. Update: Chen Xiao (giving Ma Tianyu a run for his money), Kimi Qiao Renliang, and Jimmy Lin have joined our list of crossdressers. Du Haitao has a real schoolgirl costume, replete with little flowers in his hair…
And, (at least for me), the winner….
Who do you think was the winner?
I enjoyed wallace looks also but concluded that only ma tianyu is fairest of all.
Ofcourse, ma tian yu wins. No doubt he looks more real like female and thus crossdressed the best.
Lin Gengxin wants to join in on the fun
I cracked up while reading this post. I especially started laughing at Wallace’s pics, OMG.
I think Ma Tian Yu totally wins!
yes, wallace takes center stage, that’s for sure! he’s so pretty as a woman! should i be jealous? lol…
Ahahahaha this is ingenious.
I would also like to nominate HuHu, who really looks Cecilia Cheung when he dresses up as a girl. So I know a number of people crossdressed for the show, but I really think HuHu is the best crossdresser and imitator in general in the entire show.
And here’s HuHu and Sun Jian cos Li Bingbing and Fan Bingbing (although they don’t really look like them here, whereas HuHu actually looks like Cecilia Cheung in the video above)
This is probably one of the most disturbing and funniest posts I’ve read in a while. Just wow at this, WOW.
Chen Xiao, Chen Xiao, Chen Xiao! Chen Xiao and Wallace Huo both looked great in their effeminate looks in Laughing in the Wind (although I guess they weren’t female, but perhaps their characters self-identified as females?).
even more female than the ones who were just dressing up as a girl for a free meal!
