Known for her powerful vocals, Taiwan-based Chinese Australian singer Kimberley Chen (陳芳語) shot to fame following the 2012 release of her single “Love You” <愛你> and her appearance in the Chinese girl group survival show Produce 101 <創造101>. The 25-year-old has always had a friendly girl next door image, but her recent Instagram photos are raising eyebrows.
On Monday, Kimberley shared photos of her wearing just a bikini while walking her dogs alongside a train platform. The yellow bikini accentuated her curvaceous body.
Netizens felt divided about Instagram update. While many of her fans praised Kimberley’s open attitude, many others had pointed out that Kimberley was not respecting the environment she was in. One netizen said, “We should all have the freedom to wear whatever we want, but wearing outfits appropriate to the occasion is a basic manner.”
“Excuse me for my pedantry, but I feel that this is socially disruptive,” commented another netizen. “It’s not beautiful at all. Why else would people wear clothes then?”
One fan defended, “She’s on vacation, and the beach is nearby. I think that’s okay.” Another fan said, “Wow! That’s amazing! Wearing a bikini while walking your dog. I like that lifestyle.”
Despite her softer features, Kimberley has a more western sense of style. She often wears athleisure outfits, with clothes that expose her midriff and shoulders.
