After 20 years in the entertainment industry it will come as no surprise if I tell you Sammi Cheng is the ultimate Cantopop Queen! She sold over 25 million copies of her albums in the Asia-Pacific territory only. I let you imagine how many she sold worldwide. Since the beginning of her career, she's won over 20 Awards, released 110 singles (all in the top 5 in the charts) and has held over 100 concerts in 20 tours. I think we can safely say she's been busy! This probably explains why, despite a prolific film career she only made it to Cannes for the very first time this year...
For her first trip to the International Film Festival in Cannes, Sammi - a long time friend of MCM (see here and here) - chose to wear our floor length sequinned Talbot Evening gown. She walked the legendary red carpet with the team from The Blind Detective, a Johnny To movie where she stars alongside Andy Lau (the actors are reunited on a movie set for the first time in 10 years - a momentous occasion).
Sammi declared on her Weibo that she was enchanted to be in Cannes but a little daunted by the red carpet. I am sure these fears vanished as she walked the red carpet with Andy Lau. After all he's been her on-screen partner in so many movies over the years, those two are practically BFFs!
I really love the Talbot dress on Sammi. It is both girly and edgy and the shape is perfect for her thin frame. The collar brings the focus on her radiant smile and emphasizes her features. Beautiful! That's not all... As a long time fan of MCM, Sammi wore another one of our pieces for the film's photocall on Monday.
For the photocall, Sammi was back to her usual androgynous style, wearing a black and white outfit with our Minetani x MCM necklace for only adornment. This cross-shaped necklace, inspired by antique jewellery is made of brass and embellished with Swarovski crystals.
Do you like Sammi's outfits?
