Actress Zhao Wei is on the cover of Rich & Famous magazine's January issue.
Zhao Wei became a household name in China for her role as Princess Pearl in the Qing Dynasty soap opera 'huang zhu ge ge' or 'Return of Princess Pearl'. One of her more interesting roles was in Zhang Yuan's story of gay Beijing 'East Palace West Palace'.
This month's letter from the publisher, Shen Qing, has a nice line about Beijing and Shanghai:
Rich & Famous' January coverlines are:

He Rundong: only remembers today's laughter
Li Quan: Synthesis of music and man
