hot chinese woman sits behind obama, becomes famous

One young Chinese woman has become something of an overnight internet sensation... simply by sitting behind President Barack Obama (and looking pretty, of course): Wang Zifei, 'Beauty In Black Beside Obama,' Becomes A Sensation In China, Speaks Out.

Wang Zifei, a student at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, attended Obama's town hall at the Shanghai Science and Technology Museum, and happened to have sat in a spot that resulted in her appearing in a number of photos from the event.

Soon after, she became known as the "beauty in black beside Obama." Her appearance and attire -- a now-infamous bright red coat -- caught a lot of people's attention. While initially anonymous, her identity was, of course, uncovered by internet users. And there you have the makings of an internet sensation.

The scrutiny apparently became so intense that Wang eventually broke her silence and came forward on her personal to insist that people stop discussing details of her personal life. Ah, stardom. And all she did was take off her coat. More here: Mystery woman in black behind Obama at the town hall meeting becomes popular and speaks out.
