While updating Stylesightâ€™s Celebrity Fashion category a couple days ago, our Content Manager turned to me and asked, â€œWho the hell is Bai Ling? Sheâ€™s freaking everywhere!â€ I had no idea who this ubiquitous mystery celeb was. â€œA Chinese actress? Maybe a singer?â€ I ventured, figuring that if someone shows up at every premier possible, and at every sponsored party imaginable, they must be on a quest for maximum self-promotion. Turns out I guessed right; Bai Ling is a marginally famous actress last seen on three episodes of â€œLost.â€ The only thing Iâ€™ve ever seen her in is 1994â€™s â€œThe Crow,â€ which I was obsessed with in middle school, going so far as to shave the back of my head in a misguided imitation of the female lead (not Bai Ling). Iâ€™ve rounded up a few choice shots of this lithe press-hog so that you too will be able to recognize the shameless, seemingly ageless (sheâ€™s 45!) hussy the next time you bump into her at the opening of an envelope or what have you.
