Hobnobbing with the rich or famous?

A mystery woman with her stable of photographers.

Several times in China, we saw women (yes, always women) travelling with an entourage of three or four photographers. We could only assume that the ‘ladies’ were famous somewhere in Asia and that if we stayed alert, we might see them smiling back at us from the cover of some magazine.

But we pay so little attention to the newsstands—everything is in Tibetan or Chinese or some other language we can’t read—so no magazine has ever caught our eye. But I thought I should share at least one photo with you, taken on the rooftop of the Jokhang Temple, with the Potala Palace in the background. This gal in the red top had four photographers faithfully recording her every move.

If you recognise her, please let us know who she is.

    So sorry Peggy but I’m unable to help with this. Perhaps she’s a movie star or a celebrity known for being famous or a socialite, if China has such people. I remember many years ago one of Keating’s daughters being described as a socialite when someone was writing about her occupation. However, as you said, four photographers trailing about seems like a lot. I look forward with great interest to another instalment.

    This is actually me, in a clever disguise whilst I worked on a documentary on how to have a successful life, but the video was never released, which should come as no surprise… 😉

      I’m glad to have that mystery cleared up. You’ll notice how I wrote ‘ladies’ so perhaps I suspected it was you all along.

        Guilty. And I don’t know who made the decision on my outfit, but they were clearly mistaken. That hat? Just say no… 😉
