"they (the press) are not willing to admit that i've also shed blood and tears and often paid dearly for my success. this makes me feel extremely sad."
- zhang ziyi
zhang ziyi appears on the cover of china elle's august edition wearing the same louis vuitton magenta puff sleeve mini dress that madonna sported for the brand's fw09 campaign. in her interview, she talks about her desire for a family but fear of marriage. she is currently engaged to israeli billionaire vivi nevo but is rumoured to have postponed the wedding which is being planned on an island off the italian coast. their union has caused much backlash in china - it remains to be seen what kind of reaction this latest revelation will elicit.
