In addition, she also invested in an American drama series and details are still being finalized. Regarding the wedding, she said: "Soon and should be this year. (Will it happen in Hong Kong or Italy?) Don't know yet but the wedding isn't going to be huge. It will be just a meal to celebrate the occasion with friends and family."

When asked if Michelle Yeoh is here to support Cavalli's rumored last show, she said: "I know him very well so I purposely came here this morning and will be leaving tomorrow. I hope I will have time to do some shopping. I also plan to eat dinner with friends tonight. Afterward, I will fly to Paris, then onto India to promote road safety, fly back to Paris for Fashion Week, then fly to Hong Kong." (AH MIKE)

So, looks like we are going to see plenty of Michelle, busy as always. Keep tuned. ;-)
