Elle commemorates 75th anniversary at Chinese edition’s Style Awards

Filed by Lucire staff/October 29, 2020/21.16


Elle might not have been in China for 75 years, but as one of the few countries that has put COVID-19 largely behind it, the French magazine’s landmark anniversary was commemorated in Chengdu, along with Elle China’s Style Awards.
   The Elle China Style Awards took place at Chengdu’s New Century Global Centre, the world’s largest building as measured by floor area (1,700,000 m²), rather than in Shanghai, where it had hitherto been held. The Awards had the theme ‘Traversing the boundaries of influences’.
   The awards went to Liu Song for Photographer of the Year; Wang Ziqian for New Photographer of the Year; Zhao Jiali for Supermodel of the Year; Mao Geping for Beauty Master of the Year; and Yang Guidong and Chen Xuzhi for Designers of the Year.
   Elle China editorial director Nicole Xue also launched the magazine’s ‘Wonder Women’ project with actresses Ma Yili and Tao Hong, Olympic champion Ding Ning, lawyer Guo Jianmei, artist Xiang Jing, and ‘Beidou Goddess’ Xu Ying.
   The magazine also unveiled its 75th anniversary cover at the event.

Michel Franco’s New Order, which had its première on day 8 of the 77ª Mostra internazionale d’arte cinematografica di Venezia, the 77th Venice Film Festival, was the talked-about movie the following day when its cast turned up at the Corradi Cinema Lounge on day 9. The near-future dystopian film, dealing with a coup d’état where the rich are replaced by a militarized régime, is the only Latin film that is part of the main competition at Venezia. Shot in México, the film is a commentary on the country, Franco’s homeland, and its social disparity.
   Franco was joined by Diego Boneta, Darío Yazbek Bernal, Naian González Norvind and Mónica del Carmen at the Ausonia Hungaria hotel.
   Stefano Calvagna presented his documentary film Distanziati, a work very much of our times, as it looked at Roman citizens during phase 1 of Italy’s COVID-19 lockdown.
   Claudio Giovannesi, president of the competition’s jury, also visited the Lounge, as did Jasmine Trinca (in Giorgia Farina’s Guida romantica a posti perduti), and Gianfranco Rosi, director of Notturno, who received 10 minutes of applause for his film on day 8. Actor Stefano Accorsi visited as the day drew to a close.
   Other celebrities on day 9 included Und morgen die ganze Welt’s (And Tomorrow the Entire World) Julia von Heinz, Mala Emde, Luisa-Céline Gaffron, Noah Saavedra, Andreas Lust, and Tonio Schneider.
