Shanghai Film Festival (2019)

June 23, 2019:

This is Day 3 of Tom Hiddleston visit to Shanghai to promote the BAFTA Breakthrough China initiative. You can read about Day 1 & 2 here

Tom Hiddleston and BAFTA CEO Amanda Berry attended rehearsals for the Shanghai Film Festival. The SIFF began in 1993 and has grown into one of the largest film festivals in Asia. Held over 10 days, this festival celebrates films from all over the world. This year however, there were no entries from Great Britain. This is interesting given the spotlight on prominent spotlight BAFTA Asia has received over the past week. 

Tom has been in Shanghai for three days now so of course he speaks Chinese. 

Inside Tom practiced for his presenter duties. 

Tom and Amanda made a quick change and returned for the Golden Goblet Awards ceremony. These are the most prestigious awards given in Shanghai. 

Posing on the red carpet. 

Tom Hiddleston presented the Best Actress Award alongside Wang Jingchun. 

Salome Demuria won Best Actress.

Tom Hiddleston was all smiles in the audience. 


For rehearsal, Tom Hiddleston wore his Ralph Lauren Polo suit. He changed into a Bespoke version of the Ralph Lauren Gregory Linen Jacket (£2,100). The RL patch has been removed but the jacket still has the contrasting Italian linen weave and satin peak lapel. 

Tom also had a very special accessory. You all know how I feel about socks. These Ralph Lauren trouser socks (19.95) are my sunshine on a cloudy day. But these socks are here to do more than make me happy when the skies are grey. Tom's socks have the Pink Pony emblem on them. 

The Pink Pony Campaign is Ralph Lauren's global initiative to fight cancer. Originally created specifically for Breast Cancer treatment and research, the Campaign now works to reduce disparities in care across many types of cancer. Sales from Pink Pony products (along with donations and partnerships) funds cancer organizations and research in the United States, Great Britain, Spain, Hong Kong, Japan, Australia, and more. Tom Hiddleston has increasingly been active in cancer charities and child-health organizations. The Royal Marsden, a charity Tom supported in 2018, is one of the many beneficiaries from the Pink Pony Campaign.
