eOne Films releases The Grandmaster on Friday, August 23, 2013.
Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Wong, Zhang and Leung, being a huge Fan of Chinese Cinema.
Acclaimed Hong Kong-based Director Wong Kar Wai soon will unleash his next Masterpiece and this time around he decides to go the route of Martial Arts.
The Grandmaster is based on the life story of the Wing Chun Grandmaster Ip Man (Tony Leung), the Trainer of Bruce Lee. The Film follows Ip Man‘s journey to become a martial arts master who finally meets his match Gong Er played by Ziyi Zhang.

Such a complete delight partaking in the festivities of the 2013 Costume Institute Gala (Met Gala) this year in New York City. The Gala celebrates the Metropolitan Museum‘s annual opening of the Fashion Exhibit at the Costume Institute, bringing together the Worlds of Film, Music and Fashion. Although it’s 6:00 AM and I have yet to sleep a wink, I’ve had a blast chasing the Stars and enjoying the Fashions, celebrating the theme of Punk! Although some were faithful to it, there were also several diversions, resulting in a large variety to the eye.
Yes, it was surreal being an arm’s length from Madonna who looked fun and edgy in her Cleopatra Hair and seeing Natalie Portman clash at once with her on the Red Carpet with her, only for her to acquiesce and let the reigning Queen of Pop shine in her metallic Givenchy Haute Couture Dress. I am still in awe of Beyoncé‘s marvelous Givenchy Gown, which drew the most applause from Onlookers who lined the streets for a glimpse outside the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA). Or how about getting an air kiss from this year’s Host Rooney Mara after telling her how much I admire her work? And I cannot deny how surreal it was seeing Sofia Coppola walk arm-in-arm with Marc Jacobs – two of my favourite People! Or how about witnessing a warm embrace between Girls Star/Writer/Producer Lena Dunham and equally brilliant Mindy Kaling? And did I mention I accidentally stepped-on Jessica Alba‘s dress?
The Parties continued well into the morning, with the main event taking place at The Standard Hotel, where the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Rita Ora, Cara Delevingne, Madonna, Katy Perry, Carey Mulligan and a newly-blonde Anne Hathaway, stirred-up some madness. Lawrence in particular raised a frenzy among Fans and Paparazzi alike, zipping along with tactical speed into her SUV.
See a Montage below of Clips I took from the Evening. You won’t believe how crazy things got for Jennifer Lawrence!
Definitely one of my all-time faves, Chinese Beauty Ziyi Zhang spent most of her day doing Press for the Drama. Although she was called over by Fans following her appearance at Dangerous Liaisons’ Press Conference, she had ignored the pleas for Autographs. Zhang however, saved it all for the Red Carpet rewarding Fans simply with her beauty – a stunning vision of elegance in white. Earlier in the day, she donned feathers at the Film’s Press Conference alongside Co-star Jang Dong Gun.
