Cheongsam, or the Chinese version of the body con dress, is the epitome of sexy. Covered from neck to the feet, yet revealing every curve and even more legs, it is no wonder every Chinese woman I know is a proud owner of one or several custom made cheongsam. Films and fashion alike have referred to this seductive style. The most recent being Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton SS2011 and Wong Kai Wa's Lust, Caution - although I prefer In the Mood for Love.

Marc Jacobs shows a looser shape that is closer to gown's ancestral root

Cheongsam enjoyed a huge comeback after this film. I don't know one woman who wouldn't want Maggie Cheung's costumes.

The blogosphere is no exception. I like these modern adaptations in particular. (photos from The Sartorialist)
