Her perfect face has become one of Asia’s most famous in recent years. As a successful top model, she featured on the covers of international magazines. However for Chi Ling, inner beauty counts as much as physical qualities, and it is important for her to continue to learn and to grow. A graduate from the University of Toronto, the young Taiwanese icon is passionate about art and in particular sculpture. Chi Ling also devotes her time to causes she feels strongly about, such as the “World Vision AIDS Orphan Project”. Longines could not fail to succumb to Chi Ling’s charm. The young fashion model therefore became one of their Ambassadors of Elegance in 2005.
