Jiang Zaozao

Indonesia Tatler Society - - 12 BEST COUPLES -

Kate moss isn’t short of fans, but Jiang Zaozao must be one of the model’s most prom­i­nent ad­mir­ers. Like her idol, Jiang is a fix­ture in the front rows of the shows at Paris, Mi­lan and New York Fash­ion Weeks, and a trend­set­ter in her own right. “Kate Moss is def­i­nitely a style icon for me,” she says. “I learned not to wear one brand from head to toe from her; in­stead, I al­ways try to mix high and low fash­ion. For ex­am­ple, I’ll wear a Zara skirt with a Chanel jacket— that’s so much more chic than top-to-bot­tom de­signer dress­ing, which can look re­ally un­o­rig­i­nal.” As one of Bei­jing’s most cel­e­brated gallery own­ers, Jiang is an im­por­tant mem­ber of the city’s high­so­ci­ety art scene, hence her need for dis­tinc­tive pieces to wear to her il­lus­tri­ous par­ties. “There are a lot of dif­fer­ent facets to my ca­reer that I dress for. I help with my hus­band’s auc­tion busi­ness and I have re­cently opened my own gallery, which is among the 10 largest in China. It’s a won­der­ful world to work in.” Like her love for art, Jiang’s pas­sion for fash­ion runs deep. “I was al­ways in­ter­ested in style when I was grow­ing up,” the en­tre­pre­neur says. “Even as a child, I was an icon among my friends—i think pur­su­ing beauty has al­ways been, and will con­tinue to be, an es­sen­tial part of who I am.”
