Pull the other one! Chinese actress bares her bra in Beijing when awards show host “accidentally” stands on her dress
Chinese actress Sun Feifei has discovered what the TOWIE girls realised months ago… to receive international recognition, all you need to do is flash a bit of cleavage.
Sadly for the TV star, though, her revelation came as a result of an embarrassing red carpet wardrobe malfunction.
Sun was looking stunning in a floor-length white gown as she posed for photographs on the way into the Esquire Awards in Beijing.

But as she turned to enter the building, the evening”s host, Fang Ling “inadvertently” pulled the actress” dress down by standing on the front sash.
Fortunately, Sun was wearing a skin-coloured strapless gown under her dress, and an aide quickly leapt into action hiding Sun”s embarrassment behind a large grey blanket.
Before you feel too sorry for Sun though, it is worth taking a closer look at the photographs.
Local English language website, Shanghaiist.com, questions the authenticity of the malfunction.

They write: “The comedic splaying of Sun”s arms and her poorly conveyed mock-surprise, along with the exaggerated look of oops on Fang”s face, give us the impression that thewhole thing was a planned publicity stunt.”
Besides, this is just the latest in a series of Chinese actresses gaining attention for their chests rather than their acting skills.
Last week, Liu Yuxin set the bar pretty high in a very, very push-up bra which exposed just a touch too much.

TV host Liu Wan also tends to make revealing sartorial choices.
Then again, standing on the bottom of an actress” skirt on the red carpet is more common than you would think. George Clooney, Harrison Ford and Brad Pitt have all put a step wrong too.
Maybe Fang did just make an innocent mistake after all.
