It's hard to miss Biotherm's new flagship store in Kowloon Tong's Festival Walk. The French skin-care brand's first store to build on its 'blue science' concept, it features a marine blue and white colour scheme and several large advertising light boxes with brand spokeswoman Rainie Yang Cheng-lin's fresh and jolly face smiling at shoppers.

But fans of the Taiwanese singer-actress did not need to glue their eyes on the ads, as Yang flew in from Taiwan to officiate at the store's opening on Wednesday. Donning a blue dress, Yang was greeted by local fans who took up even the floor above where the shop is located.

While Yang will probably be receiving a few early Valentine's Day presents from fans, she said she arrived in Hong Kong a few days before the event to do some shopping in Causeway Bay.

However, she denied that the shopping excursion was for hunting down a gift for her boyfriend, if any, alongside the rumours that she has been hitting it off once again with fellow singer-actor Roy Chiu Tse.
