Fan Bingbing reappears in public for the first time in almost a year

Chinese superstar actress Fan Bingbing is back in the spotlight for the first time in almost a year, after she abruptly dropped out of sight in the wake of a massive tax evasion scandal.
The 37-year-old dazzled the audience at a corporate gala in Beijing, Monday, as she posed on a red carpet for photographers in a pink and black color-blocked pantsuit, augmented by a designer handbag and diamonds.

Fan disappeared from public view early last July after the scandal came to light. Online opinion appeared mixed about her reappearance, with admirers gushing over her stunning return to the public eye and detractors voicing disdain or even disgust. Perhaps anticipating such reactions, Fan refrained from posting photos of the event on Weibo, China's equivalent of Twitter, where she has more than 62 million followers. She did share pictures on Instagram, which is blocked in China, prompting more than 170,000 "likes" as of Thursday.
