Angelababy Criticized for Revealing Dress at School Event

Turning up at a recent school event of her son Little Sponge (小海綿), 35-year-old Angelababy (楊穎) was criticized by other parents for her skimpy and revealing outfit!

Offering help to the 6.2-magnitude earthquake that struck Gansu province recently, the 35-year-old actress was recognized in a Weibo post for her financial donation by Shanghai Fosun Foundation, the humanitarian arm of the Fosun Group.

Should Have Dressed More Modestly?

On the day of the school event, Angelababy appeared at a fundraising event at the secondary branch of the famous Shanghai school which her son attended. Recognized by many of the parents and attendees who later shared her photos online, Angelababy showed up casually in a lavender camisole dress with her long hair down, and a fashionable 3D glitter tattoo sticker on the left side of her face. Looking youthful with exquisite makeup, she easily became the center of attention.

As the dress showed off her fair complexion, and had a sexy lace-cut-out area near the chest, some criticized the actress for dressing too skimpily, saying her outfit looked like sleepwear. “In front of other male parents, the cami dress was too informal and too casual”, “Her outfit looked like pyjamas” and “It’s a school event, can’t you have more clothes on?” However, some of Angelababy’s fans also came to their idol’s defense, rebutting that the actress looked “ravishingly beautiful”, and emitted a gorgeous aura even from a distance.

While transfer students have to pass Chinese, Mathematics, English, those who apply for G10 and above levels will also need to sit for Physics and Chemistry.

Also one of the best in China, it was once of the first to offer International Baccalaureate (IB) education, and has three other branches in Zhangjiang, Lingang and Hongkou, besides Xuhui district, where Angelababy was also spotted at last year. The school proclaims that over 90% of its graduates are accepted into branded universities in Europe and United States, while its most famous alumnus is Huawei Technologies founder Ren Zhengfei’s (任正非) youngest daughter Annabel Yao (姚安娜), a Harvard Master’s Graduate in Computer Science,  who is now a Chinese singer.
