Notice: I am going to give my readers a double-dose of my “Kimonos on Monday” post today, because I could not wait another week to share these photos of Atsuko Maeda with you!
I know that I am a few days late with this post. Atsuko Maeda recently attended the London premier of the the last movie in “The Hobbit” series. Although Acchan is not in the film, who could better represent the Japanese entertainment industry than Atsuko Maeda? She wears a lovely kimono as you can see.
There is a great shot of her right at the beginning of this clip:
Most of this clip does not feature Atsuko, but it is still very worthwhile to see the interaction between Acchan and actor Orlando Bloom –who plays the Elf “Legolas” in the film. Mr. Bloom compliments Maeda-san on her traditional dress.
Here are a couple of other photos from this event out there on the Interwebs.
The two expressed some interest in working together. When is Hollywood going to catch on to how great she is???
Acchan we want to see more of this kimono!
… oh wait I COULD : )
