Dresses of clouds

Ask me anything   Dedicated to traditional Chinese clothing and their modern twists. Mostly hanfu's, but also the outfits of other Chinese ethnicities.
I try to put up the ones who don't deviate too much from history, and point out where they do, but in general I don't mind modifications to hanfu for theatrical purposes as long as they preserve the general look.

Final part of Illustrated poem Song of everlasting sorrow长恨歌 by Bai Juyi. The illustrations seem to be abbreviated.  Translations are available from wikisource:
