Lin Yun for Marie Claire: Sheer Angelic


Nineteen-year-old Chinese actress and newcomer to the entertainment scene, Lin Yun (Jelly), who is most well-known for the recent box office hit and Hong Kong film, The Mermaid, appeared in some editorial shots in a recent Marie Claire edition. The editorial background consisted of her modeling and enjoying the winter feels (or lack of normally) before a snowpocalypse.

The editorial piece captured the actress in a transparent, white snowflake-embellished dress. Clearly more runway and editorial style, the dress consists of zip-up details and one of the hottest trends of the season, the bell-sleeve — or flared sleeves as some like to call it. Although a white slip was worn underneath, the translucent arms and bare legs gave it a mesmerizing look.

I’m skeptical about how the red platform flats elevate the look for any editorial purposes, but I forgive her stylist because the easy ponytail and loose strands framed her seductive face. Of course, her pouty lips made a statement in that orange red lip color.
