YUE-SAI KAN Cosmetics Queen
She divides her time between New York City and Shanghai, but Kan, 52, is a year-round celebrity in her native China. Her self-named cosmetics line designed for Asian women, a joint venture with Coty, is one of the top-selling brands in Asia, and she has written three books on beauty and etiquette.
