Photos of my Sunday in Shanghai: after a walk in Xintiandi (It so looks like a European town) we went for the first time to the giant Mercedes-Benz Arena to see the models of Elite Model Management trying the stage before the finale, in which the new face of 2012 will be chosen. The models who take part in this contest are around 70 and they come from all over the world: tonight is gonna be the finale (with a live performance by Kylie Minogue) and I’m already excited for them 🙂
Since I have a big passion for skyscrapers I couldn’t avoid to get to the top of the Shanghai World Financial Center: with its 435 metres of height (I’ve never been to such a big skyscraper) and a gallery with a panoramic view (even under your feet, awesome) It got the record for the world’s highest observatory.
To end the night Angie and I enjoyed the Talent Show organized by Elite Models in which most of the 70 models challenged themselves taking their talents on stage: some of them danced with traditional clothes, other ones sang, other ones played the piano… Let the best one win tonight!

Foto della mia domenica a Shanghai: dopo un giro a Xintiandi (praticamente un angolo di Europa) siamo stati per la prima volta alla mastodontica Mercedes-Benz Arena per assistere alle prove della finale di Elite Model Management, in cui verrà scelto il nuovo volto del 2012. Le modelle che partecipano sono circa una settatina e provengono da tutto il mondo: stasera si terranno le finali (con una performance dal vivo di Kylie Minogue) e già sono agitata per loro 🙂
Vista la mia passione per i grattacieli naturalmente non potevo non salire sul cosiddetto “Cavatappi” (Shanghai World Financial Center): con i suoi 435 metri d’altezza (mai ero stata su un grattacielo cosi alto) ed una galleria quasi interamente con vista panoramica (anche sotto ai piedi, pazzesco) si è aggiudicato il primo posto al mondo per l’osservatorio più alto.
Per finire la serata io e Angie ci siamo goduti il Talent Show organizzato da Elite Models in cui la maggior parte delle 70 concorrenti si sono ironicamente sfidate portando sul palco il proprio talento: alcune hanno ballato con i costumi tipici, alcune cantato, altre suonato il piano… Che vinca la migliore stasera!

    Of course you know that your pictures and your fashion is great. But what is also great about you is that you study law AND that you’re working in the fashion industry. I currently graduated from high school in Germany and I really really would like to know how you manage to do both ? I think it’s a magical lifestyle and I would be more than happy if you would reply and help a young admirer .

  • Una città veramente bizzarra Shanghai, dove tradizione e modernità convivono in un fantasmagorico spettacolo, reso molto bene dal vostro servizio fotografico. Molto raffinata la "roses shirt", e molto adatta al luogo, ricorda certi film ambientati in estremo oriente, dove i petali dei fiori sono trasportati dal vento e si adagiano poi sull'acqua scura dei laghi. Atmosfera da Lanterne Rosse…

  • The view is definitely amazing. But I wouldn't dare to go so high, as I have a terrible fear of heights. :/

    If you are into sky scrapers, I would recommend you visit Jin Mao Mansion, there is a cafe high up there and the view is amazing as well! You can have coffee/ afternoon tea there! Also, there is the tallest club/pub in Jin Mao Mansion as well! Other places worth visiting including Tian Zi Fang, it is built based on traditional Shanghainese style blocks (I prefer it to Xin Tian Di to be honest). There are pretty cool shops/ pubs/ restaurants there.

    Also, French Concession is worth visiting with trees and villas, great place to shoot photos as well lol.

    Looking forward to more beautiful pictures taken in my hometown Chiara!

    Love from London x

  • I loved Shanghai when I was there! I'm actually missing it especially now that it's gone down to 10 degrees!
    Too bad I missed that sky scraper and only went to the obvious touristy spot the oriental pearl tower

  • From where you wore those huge buildings on the left looked so small. An impressive city, hope I'll visit it someday

    Reply to Grace

    in realtà l osservatorio più alto del mondo si troverebbe sul burj khalifa.ad oggi il grattacielo più alto del mondo0 che si trova a Dubai.è una tappa che sembra che ti manchi.te la consiglio.direi che l'esperienza di shanghai sembra essere molto simile:-)
