Vicki Zhao gains some weight

Mainland Chinese star Vicki Zhao was in Hong Kong yesterday (November 5) to promote her album… and looks a bit chubby…

The press was bold and asked her if she has gained some weight… she said that Beijing is cold and she eat a lot recently, and the weight is going up and up.

I don’t really mind artists gaining some weight; most of the stars these days are too skinny. Besides, I like how Vicki handled the question; some of the idols would have gave the press a wack if they asked about their weight.

On the other note… that was a lousy dress. It probably makes Vicki looks chubbier than she is.
