Netizens Accuse Wu JinYan of Excessively Imitating Angelababy
Following Mainland actress Wu Jinyan’s (吳謹言) rise to fame with the palace drama Story of Yanxi Palace <延禧攻略>, she received all kinds of work – from film to television and endorsements. However, the bigger the 28-year-old got, the more negative news surrounded her. Aside from being called a diva, the actress was also accused of having poor acting skills. As a result, some viewers reduced their affection for her.
The latest negativity she received is regarding her image. After gaining prominence, Jinyan became more involved with fashion – often gracing magazine covers, attending Fashion Weeks, and attending various brand-related activities. Her styling and makeup noticeably became more and more refined and fashionable than before.
However, some netizens pointed out recently that Jinyan is getting overboard with her “imitation” of Angelababy (楊穎). Causing a hot discussion online, the netizens compiled comparison photos of the two stars to show their hairstyles, makeup, outfits, and even poses were very similar.
Although it is common for celebrities to wear the same outfits, it is rare to sport the same hairstyle, styling, and posture as each other. Thus, Angelababy’s fans and many netizens think that Jinyan is a copycat.
Yet, some people defended Jinyan, as the stylists are the ones who determine the artiste’s makeup and clothing. Not to mention, their makeup and clothing will follow the current trend as they’re both female celebrities. Also, they argued that all actresses have the same poses, and said if Jinyan is copying Angelababy, then there are a bunch of people who imitate the celebrity.
Despite both stars having small faces, big eyes, and slim figures, they have different vibes. Since Angelababy debuted as a model, she had more drastic changes in her fashion style, and the ability to work with different looks. In contrast, Jinyan gained prominence as an actress and is known for her girl-next-door image. Regardless, both actresses have their advantages and characteristics and are considered goddesses in the minds of their fans.
