The new Dragon Lady


A Chinese woman has “to project her power in ways” her Western sisters do not have to, according to a Hong Kong advertising executive [male]. [Maybe someone should tell Madonna?]
That’s why 30 percent of the Maseratis sold in China are to ladies [only 2.5 percent in the West], he says, and why those delicate creatures  are swilling  more Johnnie Walker than their men in a fashion even  Paris Hilton couldn’t match.  Furthermore, they can afford to: more than half the world’s richest women are Chinese.
So much for all those images of Matta Hari, Anna Mae Wong,  Mme. Chiang Kai-shek, Mme. Ngo Dinh Nhu, Indira Gandhi, Benazir Bhutto, as femmes fatales.
Too bad Milton Caniff isn’t still with us to give us a new incarnation of the Oriental female mystery princess.
