Last year, in one of my first-ever blog posts, I wrote that I was going crazy for all things Asian – especially because Asian women appear to be much more prolific wearers of pantyhose than their Western counterparts.
I say it’s A Good Time to be Asian because it seems as if the whole world is discovering their selling power. Today, Asian women are highly visible and they’re everywhere:
They’re on television shows and in major motion pictures. All over the world, they are the face of every huge cosmetics company. They have at least a bit part in almost every TV commercial. They’re in every magazine, they’re on billboards, on staff at every news organization.
Why? Because they are practically perfect. They are beautiful, glamorous, sexy. They are the epitome of what’s female. They are classy, graceful, elegant. They are delicately beautiful, yet physically, mentally and emotionally powerful. They are awesome.
My best friend is Vietnamese. She is extremely intelligent (she has two bachelors degrees and a pilot’s license); she has a wonderful sense of humor, she is tons of fun to be around, and she is beautiful (although she doesn’t know it). She’s also totally devoted to her family. She gives and gives and never asks for anything for herself.
I have read about and seen documentaries about Asian culture, and I admire their work ethic, positive attitudes and commitment to values.
Mostly, I love their devotion to femininity. I’ve read that it is considered rude in Korea for women not to wear pantyhose in public. In Japan, women apparently embrace pantyhose not only at the office and during formal events, but (and I love this), also in everyday settings. Those of you who’ve read my blog know how I love watching Ninja Warrior because some of the female contestants wear pantyhose even though they know they are likely to fall into the muddy waters beneath the toughest obstacle course known to man. And even the female spectators sitting in the bleachers at the outdoors event can be seen in dresses or skirts and pantyhose.
But of all the Asian cultures, my heart still is owned by the Chinese. I’ve read more and seen more documentaries about China than any other Asian country. For me, it began a long time ago with my becoming a Bruce Lee fan, but that’s a whole other story.
I set my DVR to record anything starring Asian actresses. There are at least 30 Asian actresses (mostly Chinese) I regularly follow. Of course, I love Asian-American actresses like Lucy Liu, Michelle Yeoh, Bai Ling, Sandra Oh and Joan Chen, but I also love many who are popular mostly in their own countries.
Below, I’ve put together a photo gallery for you of a few of the more famous Asian actresses wearing pantyhose. In the captions, which you can read by expanding the pictures, I’ve written a note about the movies you can see them in.
I’m sure I’ve left out a few of your favorites Asian actresses because of space issues. I would love to know who your favorite Asian actresses are.
(Have pictures of Asian actresses wearing pantyhose? If so, please email them to me at Robin@ActSensuous.com and I’ll use them in a future blog/gallery.)
What do you think? Is it A Good Time to be Asian?
