Competition is fierce among the celebrity contestants in the Chinese fashion reality TV show, The Goddess’ New Dress <女神的新衣>, also known as Muse Dress. According to Chinese media reports, two of the show’s contestants, Michelle Ye (葉璇) and Viann Zhang (張馨予), are not getting along.
Michelle Ye Admits There is Tension
Produced by Dragon TV, The Goddess’ New Dress pairs six celebrities to six designers and have them compete in missions together. It also stars Alyssa Chia (賈靜雯), Laure Shang (尚雯婕), and Nana from the K-pop group After School.
The source said that Michelle and Viann, both who were rumored girlfriends of Wallace Huo (霍建華), gave each other cold shoulders on the set of the show. While the other women interacted freely with each other, Michelle and Viann reportedly tried their best to avoid each other.
In a recent interview, Michelle also implied that one of women tried to “steal” her designer. “She told everyone in front of me that the designer I chose was bad. What was the point of that? I really do think that my designer and I are collaborating well. His works are great in my eyes. Why should I change?”
Michelle admitted that there would be some tension among the contestants. “It’s a competitive show. We’re here to compete.”
Michelle added that she is currently filming a new movie with Chapman To (杜汶澤), whom she praised as a very positive person dedicated to his work. In May, many Chinese netizens boycotted Chapman and his movies after he wrote a controversial post about the Taiwanese students’ Sunflower Movement. Michelle said, “Everyone uses their Weibo in different ways. As for me, I don’t read netizens’ comments and my agency manages my Weibo. Chapman, however, would interact with the netizens, so I’m not entitled to make comments on his ways of communicating.”
Viann Zhang Has No Boyfriend
Having an interest in fashion since a young age, Viann expressed that she has learned a lot while competing in The Goddess’ New Dress. In an interview, she revealed that she hopes to create her own fashion brand with her designer in the coming years. When asked for her thoughts on the other competitors on the show, she praised her opponents but did not mention Michelle.
After splitting with Li Chen (李晨) last year, Viann was rumored to have hooked up with Wallace Huo. However, Viann denied these reports and maintained that she is still single to this day. “I’m in work mode right now,” she said. “Working consumes most of my energy. When it comes to [dating], I’ll leave that to fate.”
