Li Xiaolu begins 2014 with a bold statement in this photoshoot for Marie Claire. It’s already hard enough to imagine her having given birth (just one year ago!) and then breaking box office records in Feng Xiaogang’s currently airing Personal Tailor, but you’ll be expected to stretch your imagination a little more for her role in the upcoming Legend of the Ancient Sword, where she guest-stars as the male lead Li Yifeng’s (possibly frozen?) mother. (He’s definitely in young adult territory). More pictures below the cut.
