After having successfully grabbed eyes of the world with their stylized square dance, Chinese dama, or middle-aged women have found another claim to fame: influencing world fashion trends.
Recently, a new facekini-themed photo shoot released on CR Fashion Book, a popular French fashion magazine, shocked the world. In the photos, models wore 'facekini', a strange popular piece of swimming gear in China, invented by Chinese dama, and intended to preserve women’s good looks, all around, sexily and elegantly. Actually, after its invention, world’s leading mainstream media, including NBC, the New York Times, Le Monde, Agence France-Presse and the Daily Mail have made reports for this extraordinary ingenuity. However, Chinese dama didn’t think it is a big deal. 'We just use it to protect our skin and prevent us from jellyfish bite,' a 'facekini' dama said.(China News Service/Xu Chongde)
