More than 80 celebrities gathered for a stellar green-themed party thrown by the Huayi Bros Thursday night, the most fabulous party to hit Beijing recently.
Huayi Bros, China's leading privately-owned media company, chose a green theme for its biyearly social event because it is launching its "Green Leaf" campaign to advocate environmental protection and a wholesome lifestyle.
Huayi's An Yi Hsuan and Duan Yihong showed up as spokesmen for the campaign.
Wang Zhonglei, president of Huayi Brothers, also appeared and announced that each gathering from here on out will feature a different theme rather than focus solely on partying and social networking, according to a report on sohu.com.
Celebrities reportedly appeared in alphabetical order, however, A-list actresses like Zhou Xun and Li Bingbing who have contracts with the group, seemed to get special treatment on the red carpet. Zhou Xun showed up at the last minute alongside actor Zhang Hanyu and Wang Zhongjun, the group's board chairman.
Other big stars with Huayi Bros are Annie Yi Nengjing, Vivian Hsu, Pace Wu, Alec Su, Lu Yi and Xie Na.
Founded in 1994, Huayi Bros has invested in a great number of films, like The Forbidden Kingdom, The Equation of Love and Death (Li mi de cai xiang), If You Are the One (Fei Cheng Wu Rao), John Rabe, Shadow Chasing (Zhui Ying) and The Message (Feng Sheng).
