China's first lady seems to have suffered a regrettable make-up mishap at a dinner two nights ago.
Peng Liyuan, dubbed the Chinese Kate Middleton, was attending the Lord Mayor's banquet as part of her husband Xi Jinping's historic state visit to the UK. But when Madame Peng, who was a famous folk singer before she married President Xi , arrived at the lavish event at London's Guildhall, something seemed odd with the foundation on her face.
The fashion-conscious first lady had unsightly white powder all over her forehead and nose.
Madame Peng is possibly the world's only superstar folk singer who also holds the rank of army general.
She has global fame to rival Kate Middleton and is well known in her native China for her folk singing career.
Meanwhile her husband had fashion problems of his own, with his trousers appearing a touch too long.
