  1. She's so gorgeous and her hair is fabulous. In that picture with her fans she looks very beautiful and cute. I saw her sing (not so much, it was a short moment which passed on the news here in Portugal) and she sings very well!
    I didn't know Zhang Zilin but I googled her and she is very beautiful. She has an amazing features and I love her lips. Her eyes are pretty too. I also saw pictures of her in the Cannes Festival wearing a fabulous red dress and she was very gorgeous. She must have been in the spotlight for sure!
    Beijinhos :)
    PS: I uploaded the picture that I was talking about

  2. Yes, she indeed is gorgeous. On stage every time she came on the Chinese people would cheer, which filled the entire arena since the place was populated by Chinese people as it was held in China, I have to say it is quite unusual that every time Miss China takes the titles, Miss World is held in the country... but I do not deny the fact that both Miss World winners from China are beautiful.

    Zhang Zilin is now a model and has graced many runways in the major fashion capitals such as Paris and Berlin. In 2006, she was listed as one of the top 10 supermodels during the Chinese Fashion and Culture Awards. She even participated in Giorgio Armani's 2007 Autumn/Winter Collection in Paris and earned herself the title of Top Model of the Year from New Silk Road modeling agency.

    She stands at a whopping 1.86m and will be the same height as basketball-er Kobe in 12cm heels!!!

    Thanks for sharing the image, she looks amazing!
