NANCHANG -- A Chinese official has received a flurry of compliments from the online community after she starred in a series of photographs promoting the picturesque village where she lives and works.
The photos, which feature Ouyang Feng, 27, in traditional Chinese dress, were all taken in rape-seed fields, as its yellow flowers begin to bloom this time of year. The photos quickly became one of the most shared posts on Chinese social media over the weekend.
Ouyang can be seen dreamily wandering through the sea of flowers, resplendent in her flowing, white dress, floral hairpins and parasol. Her similarity to characters out of Chinese costume dramas was not lost on netizens.
