Beautiful Chinese Actresses - 2
More Beautiful Chinese Actresses - Featuring Shu Qi, Cecilia Cheung, Faye Wong and more.
Last year I did a beautiful Chinese actress article that seemed to be pretty popular, so I thought since people liked it, why not make a second one?
So I did.
Now you won't be seeing Lucy Liu, Gong Li, Michelle Yeoh, Liu Yifei, Zhao Wei, Maggie Cheung or Zhang Ziyi in this one because they were in the first one.
So don’t ask where they are.
Most of the beautiful Chinese actresses in this article are popular in China, but a couple have crossed over into the mainstream here in the US.
So here are more of the most beautiful Chinese women in the world with Shu Qi, Cecilia Cheung, Faye Wong and more....
