Faye Wong may have gone her separate ways with her former husband, Li Yapeng, but their daughter, Li Yan, seems to be following in her mother’s footsteps as she dips her toes in the glitzy world of entertainment.
The 11-year-old walked her first catwalk in Paris and was accompanied by her father during the fashion event. While he watched from the audience, Li Yan gave off an aura of confidence while on stage, giving many the impression that they were seeing a mini Faye in front of their eyes.
When she was asked about what she aspires to be in the future, the little girl expressed that she wants to be “an actor or singer, I don’t know yet”, adding that she prefers to go shopping with her friends as compared to with her parents.
The little fashionista shared that she often picks her own outfits but has never borrowed her mother’s clothes to try on. “Even though my mum has lots of clothes – more clothes than I have – but mine are already pretty enough,” she quipped.
Li Yan’s first catwalk has caught the attention of many, but this is not the first time that she has been exposed to the spotlight. She once uploaded video tutorials of herself teaching others how to apply makeup, but her account was deleted by her father, who felt that it was inappropriate for someone her age to do that.
This year, she uploaded a video of herself lip-synching, which was shared by her father, leading netizens to believe that he might be less strict about her social media exposure as she grows older.
Faye and Yapeng were married from 2005 to 2013 and welcomed their daughter, Li Yan, in 2006. Faye has another daughter, Leah, who was born in 1997 during her marriage to Dou Wei. She is currently believed to be dating Nicholas Tse.
