The MDBG Chinese-English dictionary translation for one of the captions is: "Huang attended the murder of a number of film dress"

Which actually makes sense. Someone should have murdered that dress before she wore it.

That is strange even in Bjork at the Oscars terms.

Huang Yi looks great no matter what she's wearing!

The article mentioned that she was late appearing on stage because she had some difficulty getting in and out of the dress in the ladies room beforehand. :)
