Crystal is just coming back from NYC where she assisted to the new Victoria’s Secret exclusive fashion show, and she also worked with famous photographer...


Sesam Club: You are just back from the latest Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in NYC, what is your best memory of this unique fashion event? And which celebrity impressed you most?
Crystal: "It was a quite special experience for me. The best memory was that I went to the backstage twice, the day before the show and the day of the show, I met my Chinese model friends there, and I finally met my idol Candice and took photo with her! During the show, Ellie Goulding performed one of my favorite songs “Love Me Like You Do”, all of this are unforgettable"

Sesam Club: You know the proverb “the best way to reach a man’s heart pass through his stomach”? Are you a good cook? Which type of dish or food you like most?
Crystal: "Ha ha, he might as well see how to reach my heart. I did learn cooking from my mother when I was in junior high, but I never get the chance to “show off”. It has been busy ever since I went college, and then work, I hope I will have time to practice my cooking skills. I grew up in a coastal city, and I have always liked fresh seafood. Hence, I like Japanese dishes, light and fresh..."

Sesam Club: Each color has a meaning. What is your favorite one? Which color represents you?
Crystal: "My favorite color is light pink, it’s dreamy and delicate. And for the color represents me... I would say red, passionate and pure"  

Sesam Club: You look gorgeous both in traditional Chinese clothes and in sexy lingerie, but what is your own clothes and accessories style?
Crystal: "My job requires me to try all kinds of outfits, and to show different styles. But in daily life, I just want to be myself, to feel free, because I tend to avoid the sense of restraint. Normally I would wear casual clothes, and the only principle is to feel comfortable"

Sesam Club: Who is your favorite fashion designer or brand?
Crystal: "Of course I like those big brands, such as Chanel, Valentino, D&G... but I like the haute couture brands more, those with completely handmade gowns, such as Elie Saab, Zuhair Murad... I hope I could invite a designer from Elie Saab to design a unique wedding gown for me when I will get married" 

Sesam Club: You travel a lot but you live in Beijing, could you give us your 3 favorite places in this city? (shop, restaurant or bar, museum…)
Crystal: "Beijing is an old and new city, and that is what I like most about it, the mix of tradition and modern. My college is in the east part of the city, and my favorite place nearby is South Luo Gu Lane, with its old buildings, and numerous bistros, boutiques, and theaters! Before the re-construction, Da Zha Lan was one of my favorite places, it was the most lively area of the old Beijing, you can find the oldest cinema of the city and theaters from old time there. I liked to visit DAD several years ago, it is an area altered from old factories, and now it is full of art galleries, cafes, bistros" 

Sesam Club: When you were a little girl, becoming a top model was already a dream? How did you become a model?
Crystal: "I like to take photos since I was a little girl. Later on, when I went to college, some photography studio saw the photos I posted online, and invited me to take photo samples as a model... and that is how I start my career as a model, till today"

Sesam Club: Modeling is very demanding and tiring work, is there place for a hobby in your life? (sport, dancing, singing,…)
Crystal: "True, modeling could be very tiring sometimes. When I first arrived in Beijing, I had a loose period of life, because I was finally “free from parents”... you know what I mean, and I used to stay in the bars till late at night. And now, when I’m free, I would hit the gym, listen to music and read books, but it is a pity there isn’t much free time for me to do all this. Besides modeling, I’m still running a studio, and I have plans for records, also other works about films and TV..." 

Sesam Club: If you have an opportunity to meet a celebrity, who would you like meet? (singer, writer, musician, fashion designer...)
Crystal: "I have a long list of celebrities I want to meet, and I am young, so I believe I have pretty big chance to meet most of them, I would rather not to limit it to only one person particularly!"

Sesam Club: This interview will be translated into French and also published in France, have you been to Paris already? Do you have future modeling plans in France or in Europe?

Crystal: "I think all the girls have their own version of Paris in mind, and I would love to visit the city. It is a city full of beautiful ancient architects, and numerous museums, besides, Paris is also the capital of fashion and romance, I have no doubt I will be there one day. Of course I would be glad if I have an opportunity to work in France or other European country. And I would like to take this opportunity to give our best wishes to France, especially Paris, and we hope everything will be fine soon"  

Sesam Club: On the beach, one or two pieces swimsuit?
Crystal: "You would never guess that I actually prefer one piece. I like to swim, so one piece fits better.!"

Sesam Club: What is your smartphone playlist?
Crystal: "It would be either sad love songs with sentimental lyric and melody, or lively music with strong rhythm. These two are in the list for sure, seems kind of polarized, isn’t it?"

Sesam Club: Your major in college was acting, do you find it helpful for your modeling career? Between acting and modeling, which role do you prefer?
Crystal: "The Central Academy of Drama is one of the most famous colleges of acting arts in China, and my major does help me a lot when it comes to modeling. The photo shoots always have a theme, which you have to perform, and the photo is just a form of showing it. I spend more time on modeling currently, but if there are good scripts, I wish to spend more time on the big screen, it depends..."

Sesam Club: You travel a lot for work, so what do you do usually for holidays? Do you have a favorite place to relax?
Crystal: "I have been exhausted recently. I slept 3 or 4 hours after coming back from NYC, just before I went to another photo shoot. I really want to have some free time to meet my friends, or go for a trip somewhere beautiful that I could relax myself, wake without alarm, take a SPA, just to let the day pass like that..."
