The invited guests to Ji and Ya's fashion show were celebrities in the industry, so the catwalk models were naturally the world's best supermodels.
With the top supermodels and first-class site layout, Ji and Ya's fashion show made 2017 open with an exciting night, as applause was repeatedly heard.
The opening was the world's 18th ranked supermodel, the American model Bernice Terre. She wore a nude gold tassel dress and walked with a graceful posture. The tight fishtail skirt moved behind her, shining like mermaid scales as the light shone on it, revealing the tiny precious stones on the dress.
After that, it was the appearance of models that everyone present knew.
Diliya Tongen, the world's 83rd ranked female supermodel. Zhong Yingxuan, the world's 60th ranked supermodel. Han Xiujing, the world’s 96th ranked supermodel. Donna Doris, the world’s 53rd ranked female spermodel….
Their graceful posture, elegant manner and their fresh makeup made them look simple yet luxurious.
If these supermodels were as ethereal as the moonlight, attracting everyone's sight, then the high-end clothing were the sun, dazzling and tempting everyone present.
Ming Yu had seen many high-end fashion shows in his previous life. A design master and friend had once rated a woman's dress: "Once you see that piece of clothing, you can't help getting drunk on it. The curves that are as beautiful as the female body, it is nature's most beautiful creation! High-end clothing releases all of this feminine charm. Dear Ming Yu, don't shy away from the beautiful female body. They are the source of my creativity, my soul!"
The fashion show arranged the appearance of the models on various things, whether it was the hip skirt, the long dressed, one or two simple pieces with high-quality fabric that showed off the beauty of clothing or the small gems inlaid on the skirts.
There were times when gems could make people look vulgar. In particular, designers who simply piled on large gems were an insult to clothes and gems. However, in Xi Ze's designs, the small gems reminded them of little stars, making the skirts seem more beautiful and dignified.
Why was it possible to sell high-end clothing at expensive prices?
First, it was because of the clothing material. Even ordinary people could see that these precious fabrics were first-class.
The second was the superb workmanship of the senior tailors. They placed the jewellery and silver threads carefully, allowing not a single mistake.
Finally, the most important thing was the designer's effort. The designer was the most important part of high-end clothing.
After seeing these dresses, Ming Yu couldn't imagine that the designer of such beautiful dresses was the man sitting at the coffee table with him on New Year's Eve.
Ming Yu finally understood what the name 'Xi Ze' represented.
Such an outstanding fashion show, whether it was in this life or the last, it could be regarded as one of the best he had ever seen.
A fashion show that wasn't just about the catwalk models, but more about the clothes.
Ming Yu didn't understand designing very well, but when he looked at the tall models moving in front of him in these clothing, he finally understood the meaning of his friend's words—
This was nature's best creation!
It was unknown who stipulated it, but a wedding dress would always be displayed at the end of a high-end fashion show.
The thick and complex wedding dresses made almost every model bend over, so the experienced supermodels had to walk slowly on the T stage, or they wouldn't be able to walk.
This time, when the audience's light turned off, Ming Yu heard Fei Sixin whispering happily, "The wedding dress, it is finally the wedding dress. My favourite God Zi's designs are always his wedding dresses. I can't describe them in words! I don't know who is going to be in the finale tonight…"
Fei Sixin's excited voice echoed in Ming Yu's ears as he looked curiously at the end of the catwalk.
The audient was silent, with only faint discussions occurring in different places. It was clear that everyone was holding their breath, waiting for the last gorgeous dress to appear.
Right now! The sound of a stream gurgling was heard.
Ming Yu immediately concentrated and looked seriously at the end of the runway. A moment later, a tall… well, a figure that could be considered tall appeared in the middle of the catwalk. Then the lights suddenly turned one, revealing a pure white wedding dress!
It was normal for the person to not look tall. After all, this wedding dress was too big.
Any female model in the world would become the most dazzling existence when wearing such a complex and large wedding dress.
The very thin waist and large skirt made the model appear tall and straight, the crystals and jewellery on the wedding dress showing off their patterns. The exquisite hand embroidery and diamonds made this wedding dress shine in the spotlight.
The three metres long veil was enough to make any model cautious. The veil covered the beautiful face of the model, but everyone could see who the final model was. For example, this was Cecilia Cote…
Wait a minute!!
Cecilia Cote? The world's top female supermodel, Cecilia Cote?
"Cecilia wearing a dress designed by God Xi… this is killing me…" Fei Sixin muttered dully.
Ming Yu wasn't much better than her. As the angel-like female model wearing this flawless wedding dress appeared on the stage, he was instantly suffocated and captivated by the beauty!
Cecilia’s temperament was simple and clean. Her angelic face looked indifferently in front of her, but every step contained a powerful momentum, causing the surroundings to fall quiet.
Then the audience burst out into thunderous applause!
It was almost impossible for this to happen in high-end fashion shows. As a general rule, everyone always clapped lightly and the applause never continued until the model exited.
But Cecilia Cote deserved such applause!
Xi Ze was worthy of such applause!
At this point, the full range had been displayed. The models all emerged again to let the audience appreciate it once more. At the end, as everyone expected, a handsome man lifted up Cecilia's left hand and calmly stepped out from backstage onto the catwalk.
Cecilia was tall, but she was like a beautiful little woman next to Xi Ze. She hadn't lost her typhoon like momentum from before, but in front of this man, her aura was somewhat eclipsed.
The audience clapped warmly, while Ming Yu smiled at this man and also clapped.
It was impossible to say that he didn't feel astonished or shocked. However, before seeing the fashion show, Ming Yu didn't know why but, in his heart, he always believed in Xi Ze's strength and believed that his designs were absolutely first-class.
Xi Ze didn't speak on the catwalk. He just waved towards everyone before turning away with Cecilia.
Just as he turned around, Xi Ze's eyes wandered in a certain direction for a moment. Most people didn't notice, only the youth man clapping was startled.
After a long time, Fei Sixin excitedly said to the dumbfounded Ming Yu, "Was he just looking at me?"
Naturally, no one answered the question.
After the fashion show, Ming Yu sent Fei Sixin home before returning to his apartment. When he entered the elevator, he hesitated for a moment before finally pressing the top button. Ming Yu rang Xi Ze's doorbell but no one responded. It was likely that XI Ze wasn't returning to this apartment.
He rarely called Xi Ze, so Ming Yu took the initiative to sent a text message first. 【 Today's collection was very beautiful. really, it is very good. 】
After a long time, Xi Ze replied. 【 Thank you. I have something on right now so I will contact you later. 】 Ming Yu's heart was filled with a sense of loss when he saw this message. However, this feeling quickly disappeared.
Xi Ze must be busy. His fashion show just ended and he must have a lot of things to deal with. Since there was work the next day, Ming Yu didn't think too much. He quickly washed and fell asleep before 10 o'clock.
The next day, Ming Yu woke up early in the morning. He picked up his phone and saw eight text messages and two phone calls.
Ming Yu, “…”
Why didn't the text messages wake Ming Xiaoyu up? It was because Ming Xiaoyu placed it on silent. It might be muted, but Ming Xiaoyu didn't even wake up when the screen flashed?
Ming Yu looked through the texts and hurriedly made a call. The phone connected and it sounded like Xi Ze was in a meeting. Thus, Ming Yu waited a moment before asking, "Sorry Xi Ze, am I disturbing your meeting? I went to sleep early last night. This morning, I saw that you sent me a few text messages. Is there an urgent matter?"
The man's low and magnetic voice was heard over the phone. "It is nothing. I said I would contact you again later, but I didn't expect you to sleep so early.
Ming Yu didn't think too much of the words. He said with a smile, "Oh, that's right. Your fashion show last night was very good."
Xi Ze whispered, "Ah."
After a short conversation, the call ended.
The other person (Xi Ze) was busy, so how could he be idle? Ming Yu was in this mood as he headed downstairs to Zhao Rui's car. Luo Ru handed Ming Yu breakfast and started talking about today's itinerary.
The February sun shone brightly, the spring festival was past, everything was back on track.
On this meaningful day, Ji and Ya's fashion show sparked hot news in the fashion industry. Major media magazines wrote about it. At the same time, the new period of television ads for Shu Yue Lemonade was officially released on major TV, detonating a 'lemonade craze' for a while.
As we all know, advertisements in commercial breaks was a cultural tradition.
Then a few years ago, a notice was received: You aren't allowed to broadcast advertisements in the middle of a TV show. This notice made many viewers excited for a long time, until they discovered ads weren't broadcast, but the advertising time afterwards was lengthened! Who wanted to listen to 'Receive platinum for a holiday gift' or 'I want Wangwang, I want Wangwang!'
Therefore, most people's response to advertisements was to turn it off!
Do you think you can escape ads by watching videos on video sites?
How many people died from the video site ads, crying out, "Return the past 30 seconds of my life!"
"The world is so disorderly, the China-Japanese war is imminent, come to…", "What 30 seconds, return the 90 seconds of my life! I'm going insane!"
In this case, Ming Xiaoyu's 'Shu Yue lemonade' ads also appeared on major TV.
On this day, Tian Xiaonan was changing the channel, intending on finding a television show among all the ads. The previous channel was playing, "As long as it is 998, as long as it is 998, you can bring how pure gold." The next channel was "Your benefits are truly your benefits."
…Your mother, how can 998 pure gold be good!
With a stomach full of bitterness, Tian Xiaonan intended to give up on the TV and return to her phone. However! The moment she pressed the shutdown button! Tian Xiaonan's eyes widened at what she saw and she scrambled to turn on the TV again.
At this moment, against the fresh background on the TV screen, a man wearing a light blue apron was smiling at the camera, handing a bottle of lemonade to the camera. His smile was warm but not too full of flattery, it was vivid and natural. The sunlight behind him gave him a halo of light.
He smiled gently and didn't speak, but Tian Xiaonan could feel her heart beating faster!
"Ahhhhh!!! This is too handsome!!!"
At this point, there was a scene change and Yang Lala appeared.
But how could Tian Xiaonan care about Yang Lala? She shook her body excitedly and quickly grabbed her phone, shouting in her friends group: 【 You said there was nothing good on TV! But I just saw a handsome man! He seems to be someone new in the entertainment industry. I have never seen him before. He is more handsome than the small god that you like!! 】
Since then, the Shu Yue lemonade advertisement spread among the general public.
First of all, someone posted on a forum: ：《 Big surprise! The lemonade brother is so handsome! 》
【lz：Today, I was watching 'Half Moon' when I saw the handsome youth in the ad! He is very handsome. I feel like his atmosphere is higher when standing together with Yang Lala! Originally, I thought he was a newcomer. But after investigating, I found that he is actually a Muse model! Lemonade brother, let me lick you =3= There is residue on my phone. I will send a picture! 】
After half a day, this post shot through the roof.
【 Ming Xiaoyu's ad came out? Why didn't I know about this? 】
【 So handsome! Is his name MIng Xiaoyu? The name is so strange…】
【 Hahaha. Ming Xiaoyu is a nickname. He is called Ming Yu and he is a Muse model. He was on the cover of Meditation Road a few days ago and gained the Nidelan endorsement. His height and weight… Ah, I don't know. Chest 36 and hips… please tell!! 】……
The forum post quickly reached the top 10 within 24 hours. After one hour, Weibo and Tieba also started posting and sending photos. It was high definition photos of the 'Lemonade Brother', so this Shu Yue advertisement was a victory!
Shu Yue saw the huge benefits caused by this ad and bought an advertising space in the Weibo's hot searches. It didn't directly use MIng Yu as a keyword, but it was still promoting the ad, bringing Ming Yu a lot of traffic.
【 How is Ming Xiaoyu's smile so gently? It is the first time I've seen Ming Xiaoyu smile so gently! On the catwalk, Ming Yu is completely cold and expressionless. In magazines, he is either the elegant type or the sexy temptation type. How is the boy next door Ming Yu so beautiful!!! 】
【 Doesn't this hot guy look familiar? Ah, isn't this my boyfriend? 】
【 My husband is on the hot topics again! I want my home to be on Ming Xiaoyu Square! 】
【 Nine pictures without a watermark. I want to thank My Name is Lei Fei～～～】
【 Ming Xiaoyu is really healing! His acting is awesome! If only there was such a handsome person giving me lemondade! I would be able to drink 10 boxes!! 】
【 Count me in for 10 boxes! 】
【 I can drink 100 boxes! 】
Ming Xiaoyu saw the heated up people on the Internet and decided to strike when the iron was hot, posting a photo of himself with Shu Yue lemonade. As he saw several messages praising his acting on Weibo, Ming Xiaoyu quietly liked the individuals.
This made the fans even more excited. Ming Xiaoyu was unexpectedly looking at their microblogs!
…Eh? They thought Ming Xiaoyu's acting was good?
Director Wang would have a bloody face if he saw this. It was just a smile, what special acting was required?
After liking four or five Weibos, Ming Yi continued looking down at his book. 30 minutes passed and he turned to the last page. He put the thick notebook down, rubbed his eyes and relaxed.
At this time, Luo Ru handed over a bottle of medicinal drink. Ming Yu drank it with a dark face. Ming Yu finished the bottle and asked, "Luo Ru, have you brought it?"
Luo Ru gently nodded. "Yes, I bought some dessert cake and the Starbucks downstairs will send us the coffee."
Ming Yu nodded at the words and left his lounge with Luo Ru, heading towards Muse's actor's training department. They were going to visit Brother Yuan and the others with coffee and cake.
Ming Yu used his break time to read the notes and DVDs that Brother Yuan gathered. He felt like he really learnt a lot… of theoretical knowledge. As for practice, Ming Yu was going to take part in a MV filming in two days.
The two people were talking about the MV filming itinerary as they arrived at the actor's training department. They hadn't yet entered the door when they found a familiar figure passing quickly in front of them, disappearing down the corridor on the other side.
Ming Yu was surprised and squinted after them. Then Luo Ru asked him directly, "Isn't that person Lu Zhenxi? I checked his data. Ming Yu, his face didn't look that good. Are you going to see him?
Ming Yu shook his head. "I don't have anything to do with him."
Luo Ru nodded with agreement. The two people continued, but just as they were about to step through the door, they suddenly heard Lu Zhenxi's angry voice. "Brother Zeng, you can't do this to me! The day before yesterday, you said you would help me… I am calm, but Brother, there was nothing last month. This time, why…"
Ming Yu and Luo Ru looked at each other, a hint of surprise flashing across their faces.
Nothing last month.
Lu Zhenxi was supposed to appear in a magazine last month, but it was gone for some reason. Now it seemed like there was an announcement of a job, only to once again be pushed off it.
This made Ming Yu feel quite surprised.
He had only met Lu Zhenxi for a few days. During that time, he knew that although Lu Zhenxi's qualifications weren't good and his appearance wasn't first-class, it should be enough to let him become a second-tier model. His development in the fashion industry might not be good, but it might be better in the entertainment industry.
Zeng Shu wasn't a harsh agent. He would do his best to win benefits for his people.
So, was Lu Zhenxi just unlucky? Losing two consecutive jobs?
Ming Yu was thinking hard when he heard his name from Lu Zhenxi's mouth. "Brother Zeng, did Ming Yu find someone to exert pressure so that I wouldn't receive jobs? …You say that it is the PR department? But Brother Zeng, I didn't offend anyone there…"
Luo Ru frowned and said, "This Lu Zhenxi is really too much. Life isn't black and white. You don't have the ability to do such things, and he was the one who wronged you. This attitude and heart won't allow him to go far in the fashion industry. It might be better for him to be ruined now than later."
Both of them were no longer interested in Lu Zhenxi's call. They entered Muse's actor training department and found Brother Yuan's training room.
While walking, Ming Yu said helplessly, "I really don't have the ability to do such things. But I deserve his suspicion. Sister Luo's words are also correct. Perhaps it is better for him to fall now."
The two people smiled and entered Brother Yuan's training room.
Brother Yuan greeted Ming Yu and A'Xue, A'Zhao and the others were also very pleased.
As Ming Yu was leaving, Lu Zhenxi came through the rear door of the training room. He was surprised and then jealous when he saw Ming Yu, but he quickly concealed it.
However, Ming Yu and Luo Ru already saw through his performance. After leaving the training department, Luo Ru pressed the button in the elevator and laughed. "It looks like Lu Zhenxi is the outsider. The other students get along very well. In particular, that A'Zhao is very enthusiastic and cheerful.
Ming Yu smiled and nodded. "Yes, A'Zhao is a good person."
Luo Ru continued. "In contrast, Lu Zhenxi is really too narrow-minded. If you have the ability to oppress him, it is normal for him to doubt you. But you don't have the ability, even Brother Zhao doesn't. Yet he dared to pour dirty water on your head? God probably couldn't stand it anymore and made him unlucky."
Luo Ru spoke these words, but Ming Yu didn't answer. His eyes widened, like he suddenly understood something.
The elevator stopped and the door opened. Luo Ru went out but she found that the youth didn't follow. Luo Ru asked with surprised, "Ming Yu, why aren't you coming out?"
Inside the elevator, the beautiful youth smiled at her. "Sister Luo, I suddenly remembered that I have one thing to do. I will be back in an hour."
Luo Ru could only watch with astonishment as Ming Yu closed the elevator door. For the next dozens of seconds, the floor number of the elevator kept going up and up, until—
It suddenly stopped at the top floor!
