Li Bingbing is the cover girl of Vogue's April issue.
The noted Chinese actress is featured in a photo spread themed on environmental protection.
Li was recently voted the most popular actress of Asia 2009 in an online poll by the 4th Asian Film Awards for her role in espionage thriller The Message.
Her character, 'Li Lingyu', is a wartime decoder and a suspect who goes through severe emotional sufferings in the story.
Reportedly the actress had forced herself to take up drinking and smoking to better fit into the role.
As well as for her acclaimed performance, Li has won more plaudits for her cool green image in public endorsement. As the global ambassador of "Earth Hour", a campaign organized by World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to raise awareness of taking action on climate change, Li has been fulfilling her duty by attending official meetings, shooting educational ads as well as other public activities on the theme.
The 4th Asian Film Awards opens on March 22 in Hong Kong. And the organizer will first give out the most popular actor/actress award. Let's wish Li good luck as she also has a best actress nominee for her role in "The Message".
