Should a model completely follow a designer’s directions or is it appropriate for them to offer their own ideas? Opinions differ between actress Xu Jiao and fashion designer Guo Pei. During the latest episode of Hunan TV’s Up Idol (《我们来了》) aired on Sept 26, Xu stuck to her guns when she and Guo locked horns after disagreeing over different makeup styles. Many internet users criticized her for not being respectful to the designer, but Xu stuck up for herself. “Only those who witnessed the process know why I insisted and burst into tears... Thanks to those who understand and support me,” she wrote on Sina Weibo on Aug 27.
