She appeared in Vogue, Elle, Harper's Bazaar and other top publications and worked in the runways of Paris, Rome, Milan, Tokyo and other fashion centers worldwide. In 1985, she starred in Michael Cimino's film Year of the Dragon, in which she played the role of Chinese-American television reporter Tracy Tzu, who falls in love with the fanatical cop Stanley White, played by Mickey Rourke.
