‘To support One Belt, One Road’: Chinese star apologises for wearing flag-dress at Cannes

A Chinese star has apologised after wearing a dress featuring the national flag at France’s Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday, calling the move a way “to support One Belt, One Road.”

Celebrities who attend the annual festival often wear flamboyant clothing, but the 29-year-old internet anchor and actress’s self-designed dress triggered a wave of criticism from Chinese social media¬†users.

“Why is the national flag appearing at the Cannes Film Festival! She’s disgraced herself overseas,” wrote one Weibo user.
