Emily Wang

Indonesia Tatler Society - - 12 BEST COUPLES -

As a cel­e­brated for­mer singer and ac­tress in her na­tive Tai­wan, Emily Wang is ac­cus­tomed to be­ing in the public eye—and to be­ing ad­mired for her sleek, so­phis­ti­cated sense of style. She bade farewell to the world of en­ter­tain­ment when she met her hus­band 22 years ago, but a love of fash­ion was formed in those early showbiz days, when ev­ery day brought a new set of de­signer clothes. “That was such a fab­u­lous time in my life and I was of­fered some amaz­ing out­fits,” says Wang with a nos­tal­gic smile. “Af­ter I had my two kids, we moved to Sin­ga­pore for 11 years. Dur­ing that pe­riod my friends and I were al­ways go­ing to balls and flip­ping through mag­a­zines to get in­spi­ra­tion on what to wear. That was when I re­ally dis­cov­ered what types of cloth­ing suited me the best.” Wang is a fan of Euro­pean de­sign­ers—dior, Valentino and Lan­vin in par­tic­u­lar—but she main­tains a very Tai­wanese aes­thetic. “I like sim­ple el­e­gance. I don’t like any­thing too com­pli­cated or showy be­cause feel­ing com­fort­able is es­sen­tial,” she says. “I think a clas­sic ap­proach to fash­ion is quite typ­i­cal for women in Taipei. It’s a city that ad­mires a time­less look—a look that suits your per­son­al­ity and your fig­ure, rather than any­thing too out­ra­geous.”
