According to media reports, Dee Hsu 小S fell into a depressive state last year 2014 because her husband Mike Hsu and her father-in-law were charged with insider trading and were caught in a deep fat lawsuit.

Lan Zhang’s older photos revealed, did makeup turn her beautiful?

Otaku goddess Lan Zhang 張景嵐 has been quite popular these last few years. The model, signed to EeLin Agency, is known for her voluptuous figure. But after her popularity soared, there were uninterrupted rumors of her diva behavior, and not to mention her stink face when passersby ask her for photos, resulting in netizens starting to resent her. She defended her decision of not taking photos with her fans by saying that, “nothing is required from me.” Netizens wouldn’t let her off and now are discussing these high school pictures of her.

Lan Zhang looks pure and young in theses photos, with no makeup on. Her facial features were flat compared to her now more angular face, leading to plastic surgery speculations (like a nose job and chest implants and double eyelid surgery…). She doesn’t look bad in these pictures but I don’t think she would have made it in the entertainment industry without modifying her looks.

See below for the pictures.
