Xin nian yu kuai.
To our many Chinese customers, readers and my friends, Xie-Xie Ni for your loyalty to ActSensuous.
And to our Japanese, Korean, Thai and Vietnamese customers, and all our Asian friends who celebrate the Chinese New Year, ActSensuous wishes you much happiness, good health, prosperity and love in 2013, and always.
And now, in alphabetical order by how they’re most known (some by first name, others by last name):
Ann Curry: You are amazing. In addition to being a great journalist, you are classy, elegant and beautiful. Thank you for always having the professionalism and sense of femininity to always wear sheer pantyhose.
Bai Ling: You are an incredible actress, but you have become too Hollywierd and don’t choose the best roles. You are unusually beautiful, but never moreso than when you wear a nice dress, pretty high heels and sheer pantyhose. Thank you for the few times you do. More than anyone else, you don’t let anyone or any movement determine what you wear. I love it when you dress elegantly, especially when you wear sheer pantyhose. But please, less sheer black, and more nude or suntan.
Gong Li: You are devastatingly beautiful. You have the face of an angel from heaven. And you have great legs and the most gorgeous feet in the whole world. You are very strong-minded and strong-willed. Please don’t follow a fashion trend. You always dress elegantly. Just please wear sheer nude pantyhose more often. The few times you do, you rule the universe.
Jeon Ji-hyeon: Loved you in “Blood, the Last Vampire” and “My Sassy Girl” and “Snowflower and the Secret Fan.” You are incredibly beautiful. You are one of the few young models/actresses out there who frequently wears beautiful outfits, including sheer pantyhose. Thank you, and please continue to live up to the reputation Asian women have for carrying themselves with poise, class, grace and ultra femininity.
Joan Chen: Wear have you been? You are an awesome actress, and you are stunningly beautiful. I’ve never seen you in a movie (other than a period piece) in which you didn’t wear sheer nude pantyhose when wearing a dress. Yet, I can find only about six pictures of you in pantyhose. Someone as feminine and glamorous as you should live in a dress, high heels and sheer pantyhose. Please, Joan.
Karen Mok: You are the coolest of them all. You are gorgeous, but you’re also just plain cute. And you are known for your killer legs. And you are appreciated by those in the know for being one of the few who always can be depended on to wear sheer pantyhose for all the right occasions and venues.
As adorable as you are, you have so much class. You’re also very intelligent. I think you speak five languages, you are a singer, dancer, model, actress, and now a wife. Congratulations. And really, I cannot thank you enough for your devotion to wearing sheer pantyhose. You are amazing. Please don’t ever change.
Kelly Hu, what in the world? I’ve seen you in sheer pantyhose I think once. You are gorgeous. What are you thinking? Please give the world the gift of seeing you in a dress, high heels and sheer nude pantyhose. Oh my goodness, you’d be a total knockout.
Lucy Liu, I don’t know anyone who doesn’t adore you, but please lose those ugly think black tights and go back to wearing nude or suntan sheer pantyhose. You really look incredible in them. In a poll on this blog, “Which Asian actress do you most want to see in pantyhose?”, you are far and away the Number One choice. When I see rare pics of you in sheer nude pantyhose, I shake my head in wonder at how anyone who looks that beautiful in them would ever choose not to wear them as often as you do.
Maggie Cheung: Where, oh, where have you been, Maggie? Back in the day, no one had more incredibly beautiful legs than you. And you always wore sheer pantyhose. In the Jackie Chan, Michelle Yeoh movie, “SuperCop” you played a tour guide and when you stepped off the bus in that short skirt, high heels and sheer nude pantyhose, I thought you were a total goddess. Even today, in the rare pictures I see of you, you’re usually wearing pantyhose. So, thank you, Maggie. I’d just like to see you more often.
Maggie Q: How adorable you are. You are super talented. You are becoming a great actress, yet, you maintain a sweet and genuine quality. Good for you. I thought I was never going to see you in sheer pantyhose, but all of a sudden, during this season of “Nikita,” you are wearing them much more often, and looking great. Thank you for that.
Michelle Yeoh: You are still my favorite. I think Zhang Ziyi is the most gorgeous woman in the world, but to me, you are the most beautiful woman in the world. The difference? To me, beautiful means so much more than just physical beauty. You are so professional, so classy, so caring, so devoted to good causes. You are a kind and good person. But, Michelle, you have never been more lovely in your whole life than when you wear sheer nude pantyhose. Lately, you’ve been doing the “bear”-legs thing during public appearances.
I once read a comment you made in a magazine interview about Asian women having surgery to change their single-eyelid, and you admonished them, saying something to the effect of “Don’t change your appearance to meet Western standards of beauty.” I was so happy you said that. I think the single-eyelid is one of the things that makes Asian women so beautiful. But, Michelle, you have been following the fashion trend started by Western women of going “bear”-legged. You are way too professional and have way too much class and elegance to allow yourself to dress the way these Hollywierd celebrities do.
Please, Michelle, do what you know is right — dress those lovely legs of yours in sheer pantyhose, the way you did many times during premiere or publicity events for “The Lady.” You must have felt the occasion called for a more formal look, and you made the right decision in wearing pantyhose. And you looked incredible. Please dress this way more often. You are the most visible Asian actress in the world. Asian women are known for dressing more elegantly and femininely than Western women. You are the perfect role model for all Asian women. You could set such a good example for all the other Asian celebrities. Please do that, Michellle.
Sandra Oh: The same goes for you. You can do the slob routine as well as the typical Westerner. But you just as often wear some fantastic dresses and awesome shoes.
And here’s something many people probably don’t realize — you have gorgeous feet. But it is so rare (if ever these days) to see you in sheer nude or suntan pantyhose.
You really should go back and look at the pictures of you in that TV series you starred in, ‘Arliss,” about the sports agent, your movies “Last Night,” Double Happiness” and “Bean.”
How can someone who looks as incredible as you do in sheer pantyhose opt to go bare-legged, or almost worse, wear those thick black ugly tights. Yuk. You have great legs, Sandra. They’ve never looked better than in sheer pantyhose.
Shu Qi: You made a movie titled “Gorgeous,” and you are. And you’re the cutest Asian actress ever. More than most others, you are a frequent wearer of sheer pantyhose and you look incredible when you do.
You were never more lovely and adorable than in “The Transporter.” Here’s what petite women don’t seem to understand: Nothing looks better on you than a short skirt and high heels. And, in “The Transporter,” that’s what you wore, with very sheer nude pantyhose. Your legs never looked prettier. Thank you, Shu Qi. You are awesome.
Tia Carrere: What happened to you? You have disappeared. I don’t know what you’re up to, and in the few pics I’ve seen of you, you’re doing the “bear”-legged thing. I don’t know why because in your day, every movie I saw you in, you were wearing a dress, high heels and sheer nude or suntan pantyhose. And, oh my gosh, did you have incredible legs. You had to know that those pantyhose made your legs. Yet, today, you’ve turned your back on them. I don’t know why. But thank you for how incredible you looked in pantyhose, particularly in “Wayne’s World,” High School High,” and “True Lies.”
Uhm Jung-hwa: You broke my heart in “Princess Aurora.” What a beautiful, sad and powerful movie. And what an amazing acting job, Jung-hwa. I became a fan for life. I know you also are an awesome model and singer/stage performer in Korea.
I know you always wear sexy outfits, including sparkly tights or sheer pantyhose during your performances. But it’s the look you portray in your movies that make me a fan. I’ve tried to buy all your movies on DVD, but only a handful are available to the U.S. I’ve got four so far, but for me, “Princess Aurora” will always be the one that defines you. You looked stunningly beautiful in that role, and I love that you wore sheer nude pantyhose throughout the movie, including during the fight scene with that lawyer. Wow. Thank you for your commitment to femininity. Still, I wish you were a more frequent pantyhose wearer when making public appearances. I just hope you realize that, as beautiful as you look in everything you wear, you look twice as amazing in pantyhose.
Zhang Ziyi: Fittingly, your name allows me to save the best for last. I think you are the most gorgeous woman who has ever walked the planet. From head to toe, you are perfect. In your movies, you are exciting, thrilling, powerful, beautiful, cute and funny. You are amazing. Of course, most of the movies you’ve made are kung fu period pieces, so no pantyhose. But among all the other fabulous qualities you possess, I respect, admire and greatly appreciate you for being extremely professional, classy, glamourous and the very definition of feminine. No one is more feminine than you.
And thank you, ZZ, for more often than not wearing sheer pantyhose when you make public appearances. I’ll say this though: If anyone could get away with NOT wearing pantyhose, it’s you. You look incredible even bare-legged (no “bear” description for you.) Still, when you do wear pantyhose, you are breathtakingly beautiful, and extremely sexy. Also, while I said Gong Li has the most gorgeous feet of anyone, your’s are right there, too. So please realize that nothing makes pretty feet look even prettier than sheer nylons. Thank you, Ziyi, for being such a perfect example for women everywhere. You are the best ever and my hero.
Of course, there are many other Asian celebrities I could have mentioned, but this blog post would have gotten too long if I thanked each one individually.
Likewise, I know that there are a million Asian everyday women out there who go to work, go shopping, go to school, go to the grocery store, or just hang out — almost always wearing pantyhose. I’ve heard that many Japanese housewives in particular wear pantyhose. Now that is the ultimate commitment to beauty, grace and femininity.
My thanks to Asian women all over the world because it is common knowledge that you are more devoted pantyhose wearers than women of all other nationalities.
To all of you, Happy Chinese New Year 2013.
And, finally, to Li Na: I love you so much. You are my all-time favorite WTA player. Since I have the Tennis Channel on DirecTV, I can watch every match you play during the Grand Slam events.
It broke my heart that you didn’t win the Australian Open last month. I rooted and cheered during every shot you made, and I will be there for you during the upcoming French Open, hoping you can repeat as the 2011 champion there, Wimbledom and the U.S. Open.
I hope you win them all, but whether you do or not, you are nothing but a winner in life.
Li Na, you are the most powerful, yet, graceful player in the WTA. You are the most fierce competitor, yet, the most gracious person. You have so much class. And you have the best smile ever. Ni hen mei li, Li Na.
Oh, and you have the most beautiful legs of any player in the WTA. Sadly, I’ve got only one picture of you wearing pantyhose, and not surprisingly, you look incredible in them. I hope to see you wearing pantyhose more often, but whether you do or not, I will always love you.
Now, please enjoy these pictures of some of my favorite Asian celebrities:
