Worth more than Kate Moss and a Frow favourite: who is Fan Bingbing?

She’s worth £77.3 million, £15.5 million more than supermodel Kate Moss, has 3.8 million Instagram followers, and is our latest style crush.

But who is Fan Bingbing, spotted on the front row at Shanghai Fashion Week this week?

The Business of Fashion website says: “With her jet-black hair and doll-like features, Fan has also been widely admired by her fans and the fashion media for her red carpet and personal style, which wavers between avant-garde and classically sweet and elegant. She has also appeared on the cover of Vogue China, shot by photographer Patrick Demarchelier.”


Fan, 39, was born into a creative and expressive family, with a pop singer father and actress/dancer mother.

She joined the Shanghai Theatre Academy and then went onto being the supporting role of Jin Suo in the blockbuster hit “Princess Pearl” and its sequel, garnering her critical praise for her role. 

After turning heads at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, Fan Bingbing gained a huge following and became the face of Louis Vuitton China in 2013.
