Karen Mok says she's become a big fan
The Mandarin Oriental now has another local fan. Following in the footsteps of actress Maggie Cheung Man-yuk, Karen Mok Man-wai has became the latest face of the hotel group's 'He's a Fan/She's a Fan' advertising campaign.
The announcement was made last Thursday at the Mandarin Oriental in Central, at an event attended by Mok, despite her tight schedule filming Keanu Reeves' directorial debut, Man of Tai Chi.
For the campaign, Mok was photographed by Mary McCartney - daughter of Beatle Paul McCartney. The photo shoot took place in Milan, in locations including the historic Casa degli Omenoni.
Mok, who got married last year, said she was impressed when McCartney brought her newborn baby to the photo shoot. Celebrating 20 years in show business next year, she said her own plan to have a baby had been put on hold.
To say thank you to the star, the hotel group made a donation to Mok's charity of choice - the Animals Asia Foundation.
