The “Most Well Dressed Woman in the World” this year is not a famous celebrity.
Soprano Peng Liyuan, who is also the wife of the President of China Xi Jinping, was considered the best dressed woman by Vanity Fair’s Magazine. In the ranking, held annually by the magazine, she came beside women such as Victoria Beckham, Dita Von Teese, Catherine Middleton Duchess of Cambridge.
Peng drew the attention of the press when accompaning her husband on official trips, always dressed in garments and accessories by Chinese brands and designers.
The Chinese first lady was famous in Asian countries before her husband became president: she performed several concerts and TV appearances in the 80s, when Xi was still in the local government.
Aged 50, Peng Liyuan combines her military career with the musical one: she is also the official of “People’s Liberation Army” in a country where militarism has a strong influence in the world of culture, sport, business and many other sectors.
A Chinese woman had not won the title of best-dressed woman since 1943.
Peng is an example not only for her elegance and sophistication, but also for her posture, strength and diplomacy. A true mix of qualities!
