Fan Bingbing has been a regular at the Louis Vuitton show now for several years. She is the modern-day Bridget Bardot of China, the sex symbol. A few years back, a Web site did an online survey of Chinese men, who voted her the most desirable woman. I once went to a Louis Vuitton store opening with Fan and it was amazing how men would throw themselves at her. When we entered a private room, the waiter could not close the door because there were many bare arms stuck through the crack demanding an autograph. It was a sight to behold. But Fan’s character is far from a helpless sex kitten; she has been bestowed the honorable nickname of “Fan Ye,” literally “Lord Fan,” a name usually reserved for men. Fan is known for her macho decision-making ability and her support for her friends. For example, her writer friend Han Han was accused of using a ghostwriter. Han Han said he will pay 20 million yuan (approximately $4 million) to anyone who dare to step up and can prove themselves to be the ghostwriter. Fan Bingbing doubled the reward to 40 million yuan — a very macho gesture.
