  1. several pics above show a contrast of childhood to adult. of course there would be some physical change to their appearance!

  2. Majority of these women look very similar to when they were younger, especially Faye, Gong Li, Maggie Cheung, Cecilia Lui, Tiffany Tang. They’re recognisable and hardly much facial changes. Its obvious the huge contrast is in fact those that had major jobs done on their face Angelababy, Chen Hao, Elva etc.

    1. @shimmerstars I too agree. The women you mentioned that look the same are indeed like you said. The ones you said had work done did have an overhaul of work done. Well, I guess you do what you gotta do when your face is your meal ticket.

  3. elva had ps for sure. don’t know who chen hou is but man, she looked ugly as hell. i never really though gong li was pretty and she looks exact the same as a child. she’s just very plain but there is a sense of maturity and attractiveness in her although she’s not pretty at all, perhaps it’s the packaging.

    1. @m0m0
      lol….@chen hou – i don’t know who she is either but come on ABB looks more ugly up there? haha lol….
      Agree on Gong Li – never understood the hype about her so called beauty or that HK actress who ppl call her “HONG GU” never understood why some keep on calling her a beauty as well but hey i guess it’s really in the eyes of the beholder? I thought that Crystal Liu was a natural beauty? What happened, that kid pic her eyes looked like she did some major work?????

      1. @kiki
        yeah, chong chor hong is nothing special either. as for crystal liu, never liked her or thought she was an angel like most men would say but i don’t think she did anything, she looks the same to me.

      2. @m0m0
        Yeah, my aunt keeps on saying all the time that she’s this beautiful woman from HK. I went to HK once, she looks like a damnnnn typical HK woman I see on the streets???? lol…What’s so special? You can’t even called her attractive looking let alone beautiful? lol…

  4. Zhao Liying (趙麗穎) actually looks pretty cute as a kid. Like a doll face.

    1. @kiki
      i thought she looked like a mobster girl. pic taken in 20s i think, i wouldn’t consider a kid’s pic

      1. @m0m0
        well, a cute monster perhaps? lol… It’s her makeup but she does look kind of cute thou. She has this natural look even if she is not overly beautiful in my opinion of course. 🙂

  5. But this list is not even completed. hahah lol…
    I remember Aaron Kwok’s ex that Lynn something woman. She looked pretty homely on her earlier days too. She is much prettier now for sure.

  6. Oh yes yes during their hey days, Cherrie Chung, Joey Wang, Brigitte Lin and Rosamund Kwan were the undisputed beauties compared to the so-called beauties now. Really no match considering that PS, cosmetic enhancement and camera angle, photoshop were not so advanced back then so those mentioned above were real beauties.

  7. You gotta admit, Chen Hao and Angelababy were very ugly during their younger years. I guess they automatically became the beautiful women they are now right??…. Right…., lol.

  8. Before ( naive, innocent, raw)
    After ( maturity, knowledgeable, experienced)
