Samantha Ko Hoi-ning seems to be the latest golden girl transforming herself from bikini-photobook poser to serious model and actress.

The beauty has recently been seen at promotions for luxury watchmakers and, on Monday, at British fashion house Ted Baker's autumn-winter presentation at Pacific Place.

Ko was rubbing shoulders with A-listers including beauty pageant winner Edelweiss Cheung Shu-nga and model Jacquelin Ch'ng.

She possesses at least one important virtue that has helped her achieve overnight fame - respect for her bosses.

Commenting on TVB general manager Stephen Chan Chi-wan, who was this week cleared of corruption and fraud charges, Ko, who's signed to the station, said she hadn't had a chance to congratulate him in person.

'I don't have his number so I couldn't call him, but I feel very happy for him,' Ko said. 'I think he's a very friendly and capable boss. I respect him a lot. But I think the best I can do at this point is work harder to prove myself to the audience.'
