    Last week, Jing Daily previewed the China openings of Chanel's international "Little Black Jacket" photography exhibit, a series of portraits in Chanel stores worldwide celebrating one of the label's most recognizable designs.

    For the Shanghai and Beijing openings of the event, Chanel-clad celebrities from both China and abroad who served as models for the portrait flocked to the events. Chanel posted high-quality videos from both events on its official Weibo page, and both are featured below.

    Shanghai's June 21 opening event featured appearances by celebrities including Scottish actress Tilda Swinton, Chinese musician Li Yuchun, Chinese model Sui He, and South Korean actress Song Hye-kyo. In an interview, Li Yuchun said in Chinese, “Shanghai is a fashion capital, so it is great to have the exhibition shown in this city. I like the exhibition a lot, not only because I am a fan of Chanel’s little black jacket, but also because I am a photography lover. I am having a great time today.” Watch the rest of the interviews below:

    The Beijing opening, which took place on June 19, featured Chinese actress and singer Zhou Xun, French actress Virginie Ledoyen, Chinese model Sun Feifei, and fashion blogger and stylist Han Huohuo. In the video, Zhou Xun talks about being photographed by Karl Lagerfeld for the exhibition, stating, “Karl was very efficient during the photo shoot. It only took us about two minutes. When the work was presented in front of my eyes, I couldn’t believe it was me in the photo.”
