Qin Yi (秦怡) is a Chinese film and drama actress that was most popular in the 50's and 60's.
She was one of the four favorite actress of Zhou Enlai that said she was the "most beautiful woman in China". I shot Qin Yi's portrait in her Shanghai apartment last week for The New York Times. I am personally impressed about how charming she still is despite her grand age.
