Inside The Glamorous Lives Of Hong Kong’s Top Actresses

So you’ve heard of Hollywood. How often did you hear about Hollywood of the East? The Hong Kong film industry had once produced the biggest names in the entertainment world, like Bruce Lee, Wong Kar-wai, and Chow Yun-fat to name a few. After all, the 80s and 90s constitute the golden age of this once-profitable industry. Almost 400 films were produced yearly and they surpassed India too, thus making Hong Kong the ‘largest exporter of films in Asia’. Most actors and actresses have sadly receded from the limelight, especially after the industry started dwindling for the most part. But few have still kept with their comfort, opulence, extravagance, and larger-than-life living. One look at their luxuries, including flats and cars and you’ll know it all. Here’s taking a look at some successful and rich female stars from Hong Kong.

Rosamund Kwan

With an estimated net worth of no less than US $64.5 million, the diva Rosamund’s properties can stun anyone. Her house is in one of the most affluent places in Hong Kong that overlooks Victoria Harbour. She bought it for the whopping US $17.4 million in 2017 at the exclusive Tregunter Towers in the Mid-Levels.

A decade back, her flat at The Nautilus in Repulse Bay cost her US $14.6 million. Within three years, the rate had almost doubled. Very recently, she was seen flaunting her walk-in wardrobes on TVB’s Fortune Show. Also, her collection of high-heels and designer handbags from reputed brands like Hermes Birkins and Chanel are quite impressive.

Carina Lau

The actress is best recognized for posting about her extravagant lifestyle on social media. Carina has flats aplenty in some of the prime property areas in Beijing, Suzhou, Shanghai, and Hong Kong. The one in Hong Kong alone exceeds the US $100 million, as per last year’s records. In the lavish May Tower flat estimated to be around the US $12.6 million, she had hosted multiple gatherings for her celeb friends and family members.

The flat styled in vintage décor truly stands out for that’s quite reminiscent of the Wong Kar-kai directed movie, In the Mood for Love. In one of her posts, Lau showed off the very elegant vase termed ‘Nine Peaches’ from the Qianlong dynasty in her home. Reportedly, that was auctioned in 2015 for no less than US $8 million at Sotheby’s. We’re acquainted with Lau’s frequent travels, especially using her private jet- the Legacy 500 mode that itself is estimated to be around the US $20 million.

Gigi Lai

The local press has ‘christened’ Lai as the “Goddess of Beauty” and we totally agree. The ravishing beauty is known to possess quite a great portfolio of properties. Her affluent Hong Kong-based duplex called Branksome Grande in the Mid-Levels neighborhood is known to be a ‘veritable palace’ by netizens. Overlooking the Victoria Harbour, the spacious flat of 8600 sq. ft, costs around the US $46.5 million.

Lau married Patrick ma Ting-Kung, the millionaire businessman. The couple tied the knot at the Peninsula hotel, where the wedding gown and evening dresses were valued above the US $815,000. When the pair had their twin daughters in 2010, Lai got a gift in the form of a 190-meter yacht termed ‘Bonheur’, meaning “happiness” in French.

Michele Reis

Michele’s ‘femme fatale role’ in Fallen Angels, the Wong Kar-wai-directed movie stands out among many others. Reis stays at a 4300 sq. ft. flat in Hong Kong, called the Highcliff, one of the tallest residences in the world. She stays on the 75th floor that costs around the US $128.8 million, replete with a music studio and a table tennis room. Amidst the pandemic, Michele had spent close to the US $645 thousand on a notable parking spot at Kadooria, based in the luxurious residential area at Kowloon.

She had bought the flat for the US $9.8 million a few years back. Just last year, she observed her 50pth birthday with her family members in a very lavish private yacht. It’s three-storied and has a working lift, along with 13 bedrooms that cost around the US $10.8 million. The staff and maintenance of the same are no less than the US $12,800.
