More about: YUE-SAI KAN 

Mini Biography.  People magazine called her the most famous woman in China. Time magazine proclaimed her the Queen of the Middle Kingdom. The Congressional Record deemed her The De Facto Citizen Ambassador!

They all accurately, if not completely, describe Chinese American Yue-Sai Kan, whose life straddles the East and West as a best-selling author, Emmy-winning television producer, entrepreneur and humanitarian.

In 1986, the television series One World produced and hosted by Yue-Sai Kan aired on China s national television network CCTV, giving millions of Chinese the first glimpse of the outside world and made her a household name in China. In 1992, she successfully transformed herself from a TV personality to an entrepreneur by creating the Yue-Sai cosmetics brand which is recognized by over 90% of the Chinese population today. Forbes magazine reported that she changed the face of China one lipstick at a time! For the past 3 years, her life style television series Yue-Sai's World aired nationally in China and has garnered raved reviews, including a phone call from the Chinese President Hu Jin Tao.

Yue-Sai Kan's uncanny understanding of China's needs is shown by the subjects chosen for her best-selling books --- On Television Production (when TV was just starting in China); Yue-Sai's Guide to Asian Beauty (when no Chinese were using makeup); Etiquette for the Modern Chinese (when the Chinese government needed to educate its massive public about good modern manners); How to Be a Beautiful, Healthy and Successful Modern Woman (the first comprehensive life style guide to career women in China); and The Chinese Gentleman (when Chinese men wanted to become the new international gentlemen ). Her latest publication is The Complete Chinese Woman , which came out in May, 2007 and has proved to further solidify her role as an arbiter of style and taste in China.

Yue-Sai Kan's latest entrepreneurial adventure is House of Yue-Sai, an East-meets-West lifestyle retail concept aiming to bring style, elegance and inspiration to Chinese consumers. First store opened in Shanghai at the end of 2007. Major categories include fine furniture, bedding, tabletop, lighting, decorative accessories, unique gifts and a lady's corner. In the spring of 2008, House of Yue-Sai formed its new Interior Design Department. The team's international mix of design professionals specialize in high-end interiors custom built to meet client s needs. Plans are also being made to bring 6 House of Yue-Sai boutiques to department stores and specialty malls in Shanghai by the end of 2008.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Extended Biography.  She formed Yue-Sai Kan Productions and created her first major TV production, a weekly series called Looking East, introducing Asian cultures and customs to a growing and receptive American audience. Rich in content, made vivid with Yue-Sai's personality, the series garnered critical acclaim, won dozens of awards and reviews such as this one from the New York Times: "Few people are able to bridge the East and West, but Yue-Sai Kan can, and does it with beauty, intelligence and grace." She was credited as the first TV journalist to connect the East and West. Looking East stayed on the air for 12 years, the last 2 years on the national cable network, the Discovery Channel.

Yue-Sai Kan's hard work paid off in 1984 when PBS invited her to host the first live broadcast from China on the occasion of the 35th Anniversary of the People's Republic of China. Soon after, in 1985, the Chinese government asked her to produce One World, the first television series ever produced and hosted by an American on China's only national network, CCTV. Her broadcast captivated the entire nation and made her a household name. Both the script and video form of the series were used as teaching materials in schools across China. Besides being trusted and loved by millions of Chinese for being the first to bring the "world" to them, her easy television style has also influenced a generation of TV journalists in China. After that, Yue-Sai Kan continued to produce sophisticated series aimed at raising the Chinese consciousness about the latest international lifestyle trends, and she contributed segments for the popular TV program Half of the Sky on CCTV.

In the United States, Yue-Sai Kan's other TV credits include the ABC documentary China Walls and Bridges, which earned her a coveted Emmy Award. Journey Through a Changing China, which was syndicated across the country, was so powerful that it was publicly lauded in The Congressional Record. And the popular series Mini Dragons and Doing Business in Asia, broadcast on PBS, fed the West's growing hunger for information on the East. A corporate version of the series was created and thousands of copies were sold to corporations and university business schools around the globe. Throughout her TV career, Yue-Sai Kan has filmed in over 25 counties and has created thousands of programs, some of which have been aired all over the world.

To make Asian women feel confident in their own unique beauty, frustrated by years of needing to look her best before the camera without being able to find appropriate cosmetics for her Asian skin tones, coloring and facial features, Yue-Sai Kan founded Yue-Sai Kan Cosmetics Ltd. " I wanted to create, produce and sell the very best beauty and skincare products that we can offer to Asian women and to the world, and become the first global cosmetics brand from China. " The products were launched in Shanghai in 1992 and were a huge success. The brand grew into China's leading cosmetics company, selling products in over 800 outlets through 18 regional offices in China s major markets. According to a survey by the official Statistical Bureau, the Yue-Sai brand has brand recognition of 95 percent! Forbes reported that Yue-Sai Kan has become Chin'as new role model and is changing the face of the Middle Kingdom, one lipstick at a time . In 2004, L'Oreal purchased Yue-Sai Kan Cosmetics Ltd. and the Yue-Sai brand name for its cosmetics line. Yue-Sai Kan is now the Honorary Vice Chairman of L'Oreal China.
