Classical Chinese brides in Beijing opera wear a phoenix crown and a gorgeous gown when they get married. The phoenix crown is covered with a pair of mandarin ducks playing in the water. She is gorgeous, noble, and beaming. In the photo, the bride quietly lifted her hijab, Xiapi, to peek at the groom who has never met before, shy and full of happiness. Due to the prevalence of retro fashion, this classical dress that travels through time and space is now in fashion.
