Chinese actress Li Bingbing honored at Met Gala in New York

Chinese actress Li Bingbing is a huge star in China but remains fairly unknown in the rest of the world. She is one of the guests of honor at the Chinese-themed Met Gala in New York. The evening is one of the most anticipated event each year in the world of fashion.

More than two years in the making, the show encompasses 30,000 square feet of galleries over two floors. It takes visitors on a journey showing how Western designers found inspiration in all things Chinese, from the elaborate embroidered costumes of Imperial China to Shanghai in the 1920s, up to the military garb of the Cultural Revolution.
