Chapter 1452 You think too highly of yourself.
The instant he found out about her invitation, he started his hunt for the perfect gown for her appearance on the red carpet.
After looking through numerous items, he chose this piece.
He got this from an auction for a high price.
The owner was unwilling to let go of it at first.
This gown was a priceless treasure; someone once tried buying it off with a nine-digit figure and was flatly refused.
Alas, who was Gong Jie and what kind of person was he for the owner to deal with?
His overture was once rejected, but not one to accept a refusal plainly, the young chap got what he wanted at gunpoint, and that was how he managed to get his hands on the priceless gown finally.
To him, only this gown was worthy of his sister.
In fact, none other than his sister could match up this gown!
As usual, his tyrannical style was evident in this matter.
“It’s good as long as sis likes it.”
After pausing, he continued, “It’s ideal for the red carpet.”
He wanted his sister to appear at her most beautiful in front of the camera.
Yun Shishi could not help chuckling. “Isn’t this… too ostentatious?”
“What’s there to be afraid of? Sis is so beautiful; what’s wrong with being ostentatious?” he argued back indignantly.
She was lost for words and could only smile.
“Xiao Jie, I have to go for my styling now. I’ll send you a message once I’m back in the country.”
After putting down the phone, she was ushered to the stylist by her manager.
After changing into the gown, she needed to re-style.
Qin Zhou instructed the stylist to create a classic and elegant hairstyle. Together with this oriental ink-decorated dress, she was too ravishing for words.
Right at this time, she bumped into Lin Zhi as she walked out of the VIP suite. The latter had just changed into her gown, too.
The latter was very taken aback when she saw her in the oriental-inspired gown. She knew instantly that she paled in comparison in her European gown!
Spending so much effort on dolling herself up, only to be defeated by Yun Shishi’s glamorous presence the instant she stepped out of the dressing room, she had no choice but to reassess her look. Indeed, she was too plain standing next to the newcomer!
She was irrevocably pared down!
The verdict was already out before stepping on the red carpet.
Feeling that the newbie had snatched her limelight and assuming that the gown the other was wearing had come from the sponsor, she retorted unhappily, “This gown belongs to me in the first place!”
The newcomer could not be bothered with her nonsense and ignored her totally.
That only made the senior angrier as she demanded, “I should’ve the privilege of selecting the attires first. The gown you’re wearing belongs to me. Take it off and give it to me!”
Qin Zhou, who was standing at one side, could bear it no longer. “Lin Zhi, are you out of your mind? Don’t throw a tantrum here.”
She was incensed by his words and rebutted unreasonably, “Mr. Qin, don’t be a bully just because you have an edge here. You are out to put me down, aren’t you? Why is the priority given to the newcomer first? Obviously, you are ostracizing me on purpose!”
“Ostracizing you on purpose?”
The man stifled a snort upon hearing her accusation. “Who do you think you are? Must I go out of my way just to ostracize you? You think too highly of yourself! Don’t make me laugh, please!”
“I don’t care!”
By now, she had lost her cool. Her behavior turned worse. “In any case, this gown belongs to me! Return it to me!”
The manager lost his patience and waved her away, as if shooing away an irritating fly buzzing around him. This infuriated the actress further.
As she gaped at the man for his discourteous words, her eyes instantly rimmed red with tears and she choked out, “You both are too much!”
