Can we just stop talking about her being an asian and skin whitening cosmetics and her being compared to causasians etc???!! Its ruining the Katie leung thread!!




Anyway...Those blonde hair extensions are awful!! If I was katie, i wouldnt have allowed them to put them in for me! The Dior look a like dress is not flattering either...maybe the real Dior jumper dress would have been miles better!

I have to admit when I saw that first pic of her in the denim, I didnt think she looked that pretty but shes cuter with beautiful hair and make up.

not feeling her bangs. her hair texture seems too coarse and those bangs just make her look really sloppy.
as for her style, not mind blowing but i like her shoe choices

Yeah, I really think this thread should go back to Katie but I can't help it cause people keep quoting me and I really feel I should respond! So for the person who wanted to know more about bleaching... there is an article here. It also talks about how surgery is often done to "correct certain characteristics which stray from the European-based ideal of a small, straight nose, straight soft hair, big eyes (preferably blue) and fair-skin." which reiterates what I said earlier about how most Asians want to emulate Western features. Again, this is a cultural thing which I think no matter how hard Westerners try, they will never understand because they just weren't brought up that way. The Guardian also wrote an article here about how this one girl who wanted lighter skin almost died from using toxic skin bleach. So yes, it is quite a common fact within Asian communities that Asians bleach their skin.

Also I never said other people couldn't find Katie pretty. I was just stating my opinion about her being unattractive to me. I really think people should re-read the post I made earlier about how saying she's unattractive to me because she has really chinese features is no different to someone saying someone is unattractive cause she's fat.

Okay that's all I have to say. I suggest if people have other issues with my comments, they should just PM me and leave this thread to talk about Katie herself and not my opinions.

I am starting to think that she, as well as most of the other girls in the HP movies, wear flats to keep from towering over Dan Radcliffe .

that is very true, i never thought of that. for the ny premiere, i wish she chose a different top though, it kind of takes away from the overall look.

I just saw that interview and she is so shy. AND it is bizarre hearing her voice! I've only ever hear of Asians with British accents not Scottish. I think she's really cute and its a shame there is so much hate. I guess you should never EVER mess with Harry Potter/Daniel when it comes to girls. Hell, even the older ladies love him.

Back to the comments about her being not "pretty" compared to other Asian girls. Just because she doesn't have a straight nose or fair skin doesn't make her unattractive. She can have those features and still be ugly. The important thing to emphasize is the symmetry of the face and the portions of the features to each other. Generally that is what people think is beauty except for some of coarse. I rate her - average/cute. But if you think about it, they would never cast a insanely pretty girl to play Cho Chang. No one of the cast is gorgeous, they are all just regular kids.

I think she's pretty and her accent is cute. It's weird, because I don't like the character of Cho Chang but I like her.

i think she's pretty but i'm not a fan of her makeup. i think she looks better without the 'sultry' eye makeup.

i'll be honest, when i first saw that she was playing cho chang, i was disappointed. but lately, this girl has really been growing on me!

although i do agree her sense in fashion is a bit... off. but she has a lot of time to grow.
