Smartasses Magazine Top 100 - Female EmpowermentVanessa Mae Bio – Smartasses Magazine Vanessa-Mae Vanakorn 陈美 (born October 27, 1978) is an internationally known British violinist. Vanakorn was born in Singapore to a Thai father and a Chinese mother. After her parents separated, her mother married Briton Graham Nicholson when she was four years old, and the family moved to England. Vanakorn is a British citizen who grew up in London, and attended Francis Holland School in central London. She also studied with Professor Lin Yao Ji at the National Conservatoire of Music in Beijing, and in the UK, she attended London’s Royal College of Music.

Vanakorn began playing piano at the age of three, and violin at five. Her music style is self-described as violin techno-acoustic fusion, and several of her albums prominently feature the techno style. At age thirteen, Vanakorn became the youngest soloist to record both the Beethoven and Tchaikovsky violin concertos. She was particularly famous in the United Kingdom throughout her childhood, making regular appearances on television. In 1988 Vanakorn made her international debut at the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival in Germany, as well as her concerto debut with the Philharmonia Orchestra in London. Her first pop-style album, The Violin Player, was released in 1995. Two years later, she appeared on the 1997 Janet Jackson album The Velvet Rope playing a violin solo on the title track. Vanakorn occasionally records her own compositions. Her 1997 album China Girl: The Classical Album 2 included two pieces in which she shared a writing credit- Violin Fantasy on Puccini’s ‘Turandot’ and Reunification Overture which marked the reunification of China and Hong Kong. In 2006, Vanakorn was ranked as the wealthiest entertainer in the UK under 30, on the Sunday Times Rich List, having an estimated fortune of about $64 million, stemming from concerts, as well as record sales estimated at over 10 million copies worldwide- an unprecedented achievement for a young female violinist.

In 2014, Vanakorn was one of two alpine skiers who represented Thailand at the Winter Olympics, where she competed under the name of Vanessa Vanakorn. She registered as a Thai alpine skier. On February 18, 2014, she finished 67th of 90 skiers, with a time of 1:44.86 on her first run for the giant slalom, 26.98 seconds behind the leader. At the end of the event, she had a total time of 3:26.97, 50.10 seconds behind the gold medal winner, Tina Maze of Slovenia. Vanakorn was last of the 67 racers who finished, although 23 other racers failed to complete the race.

Vanakorn coincidentally shares her birthday with famed violinist Niccolò Paganini, who was born in 1782. She often uses one of two types of violins, a Guadagnini acoustic violin or a Zeta Jazz model electric violin. The Guadagnini was made in 1761, and was purchased by her parents at an auction for £150,000. It was stolen in January 1995, but was recovered by the police two months later. Vanakorn also owns three Ted Brewer Violins, two of which she uses on stage and in publicity material, a Crossbow and a Vivo2 Clear. In addition to these, Vanakorn sometimes buys violins and resells them later, giving the proceeds to charity.

Why we think she’s hot:

What on Earth could possibly be more comely than a phenomenally gorgeous, raven-haired Asian beauty, with a love of violin, skiing, and a passion for wearing jaw dropping knee-high boots everywhere she turns? All of that yumminess aside, the fact that Vanessa Mae broke away from the traditional classical music influences, in lieu of a flashy, modern & hip style… cooks up all sorts of delicious thoughts in and of itself.
