Singapore fashion label Depression is clearly on a roll when it comes to celebrity support for the brand. Just last month, American idol star Adam Lambert was spotted wearing their Creeper shoes to the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.
Now, actress Zhang Ziyi too has shown her love for their label. She was seen wearing the surreal “In Your Face Dress” Depression dress at the My Lucky Star press conference in Shanghai; a nod to her playful role as the ditzy Sophie in the romantic comedy.

The actress was also recently in Singapore with co-star Wang Lee Hom for a gala premiere at Marina Bay Sands. A large portion of the movie was also set in Singapore at the Marina Bay Sands hotel.
In another show of support, she wore an all-black “Melting Wax” Depression dress again on September 17, 2013, in Chengdu, the final stop of her My Lucky Star press tour in China.
Obviously thrilled by the news, co-director Andrew Loh of the Depression designer duo told herworldPLUS: “Zhang Ziyi looks hip and chic in our In Your Face Dress and Melting Wax Dress. It’s definitely a dream come true for us to dress an international A-list actress!”
Although we’re far more used to seeing the star in glamorous ball gowns, it’s refreshing to see her in a spunkier, younger look and in support of an Asian label too.
