Madame Wellington Koo (顾维钧夫人), originally named Oei Hui-Lan (黄蕙兰).

She was officially voted the best dressed Chinese Lady of 1920-40’s by VOUGE magazine. She was the daughter of the richest man of South East Asia back then, who was also easily one of the richest man on earth then too. A Sugar King.

Her husband Wellington Koo was famous diplomat of the time in China.
