Yao Chen 姚晨 is not your typical Chinese actress. Aside from being one of the top-billing stars in Asia at the moment, both critically acclaimed and beloved by the Chinese public, Yao Chen has also held the record of having the largest number of Weibo followers in the world for several years now. And she wields that power for a good cause, using it to speak up about important cultural and social issues. She is also endearingly down-to-earth. In public appearances, she prefers low-key looks and natural hair and make-up. So it made perfect sense for Yao Chen to select a gorgeous, relaxed-chic look from Chalayan's Resort 2014 collectionto promote her latest film, Control <控制>, which she stars in alongside top Chinese actor, Daniel Wu. Consisting of a sweatshirt style top and circle skirt, the look perhaps is an atypical choice for a top actress to wear for press interviews, but Yao Chen wears it graciously, while her elegance and poise lift the outfit to incredible new glamorous heights. Yao Chen styled the look by pushing up the sleeves, letting her hair loose and applying minimal make-up, but she finishes it off with a pair of killer strappy stilettos. We love this look on Yao Chen, don't you?
