Lin in Longines elegance

TAIWANESE supermodel Lin Chiling was appointed by Swiss watch maker Longines as its "international ambassador of elegance" last week.

At the announcement at the Shanghai World Financial Center in Pudong, Lin danced with children dressed in various national costumes.

As its new international ambassador, Lin will help promote the first "Longines Tennis Youth Dream Tour" to be held in China next month. The tour aims to discover and nurture China's young tennis talent.

Considered "Taiwan's No.1 Beauty," Lin also has a double degree in art history and economics from University of Toronto.

She has also turned her talent to hosting TV shows and award ceremonies, receiving praise for hosting Taiwan's Golden Horse Film Awards in 2004.

Last year Lin broke through in movies, landing a leading role in John Woo's film "Red Cliff" alongside stars Tony Leung and Takeshi Kaneshiro.

This month she will start shooting the action comedy "Treasure Hunter" with Taiwanese superstar Jay Chow.
