Born in London, England, Chow is the daughter of Michael Chow, well-known restaurateur and the man behind Mr. Chow restaurant, and Tina Chow, a late model and designer. Her father is Chinese while her mother is of German and Japanese descent. She also has a brother named Maximillian. Chow is the first person in her family to graduate from college, with a degree in Psychology from Scripps College in California.
Chow’s career started when she was discovered by Roger Museenden, who soon had her working as a model with big names like Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein, and with Japanese cosmetics giant Shiseido. Her years working as a model helped establish her career and also her net worth.
With her success as a model, Chow was also recognized in various fashion magazines. In 1996, she was featured in Harper’s Bazaar as one of their “It” girls for the year, and that same year she was added into Vogue magazine’s “The Next Best-Dressed List”. Her beauty also landed her in the men’s magazine Maxim in 2000, with her picture featured in the magazine’s gallery “Girls of Maxim”. She was also in the magazine’s Hot 100 Women lists of 2000 and 2001.
Aside from thriving as a model, Chow also ventured into acting. Her first gig came in 1998, when she was included in the movie “The Big Hit” alongside Mark Wahlberg. Other films that she appeared in included “Head Over Heels”, “Spun”, and “Frankenfish”. Her success in movies also helped in her career, and in raising her wealth.
In the late 2000s, Chow ventured into television, appearing in USA Network’s “Burn Notice” in 2007, and becoming the host and judge of the reality competition show “Work of Art: The Next Great Artist” in 2010. She also lent her voice to the game “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas” as Katie Zhan. These various endeavours have also helped increase her net worth.
Meanwhile in her family life, Chow’s mother died of AIDS in 1992.
