Prior to the Paris Fashion Week in 2012 Lane Crawford had an interview with Chen Ran who was considered to be one of the most talked-about fashion icons on the Chinese Mainland. She was an alum of the Beijing Film Academy with extraordinary talent and expressive style and impeccable taste as well. Her fashion repertoire is as impressive as her acting career (she starred in renowned filmmaker Chen Kaige’s “Caught in the Web”). She was endorsed by Chloé, has graced the cover of “Harper’s Bazaar China” and fast becomig an ever-present regular on the global fashion week circuit.

When Chen Ran is abroad for work in a new country she likes to go to the different local boutiques to shop for trinkets. It’s a wonderful thing to let her imagination run wild with clothing. She likes looks that are both natural and comfortable. She prefers to pair a cool jacket or accessory with a skirt or mini. During travelling she misses her dog the most. Her personal style is influenced by Alexa Chung and Kate Moss.

According to Sina, as a result of the successful cooperation with Chen Ran, Chloé flew her to Paris to take part in the Paris Fashion Week.

It’s not hard to understand why Chen Ran is called a rising star in China. She is a much loved actress and model. My impression of her is that of a very adorable woman. I can’t wait to watch Park Si Hoo and Chen Ran together in movie “Scent”. I’m confident they will show us a couple with chemistry.^^
