Faye Wong 王菲 has long played the role of the reigning queen of both Mandarin and Cantonese pop music in Greater China. The Beijing native holds the record for bestselling Chinese female artist and occasionally dabbles in the film industry as well (Chungking Express, 2046). Not only is she one of the highest paid Chinese artists, Faye Wong is also the most original and daring of Chinese style icons.
Her unique profession as a singer allows her to display that daredevil quality to full advantage – her concert outfits range from sexy to tongue-in-cheek, rock couture to romantic – pairing her angelic voice with whimsical and even bizarre takes on Hong Kong’s culture of outrageous celebrity concert fashion. Often noted for her cool demeanor and terse statements to the press, Faye Wong remains the eternal intrigue of the Chinese paparazzi.
