Kuala Lumpur Malaysia
From her small town roots to her domination of the local modeling scene, Amber Chia embodies the classic fairytale rise to fame. After moving to Kuala Lumpur at the early age of 17, Amber was quickly able to make a name for herself within the local modeling scene. Her charming personality and distinct look hastily ensured her place amongst the country's elite. Amber proved her international appeal by securing a contract with Guess Watches International in 2005. Known for her pouty lips and her disarming smile, Amber's distinct look is instantly recognizable. This makes her the ideal spokesperson for any brand. She is able to bring instant acknowledgment and credibility to anyone that she represents. In recent years, Amber has begun to expand herself internationally. With countless international magazine covers and several notable TV appearances in China and around the region she is set to break onto the international stage. Amber has graduated to being a well-known actress with successes in Chinese productions and serials such as The 3rd Generation, Possessed, and Trio & a Bed. Amber is now also a well-known actress in Taiwan and China, appearing regularly in TV host shows and sitcoms. She recently starred as co-lead in a CCTV production 热浪岛, currently in post-production and will be broadcast China-wide in 2008. In 2009, Amber took a 3 month leave of absence and journeyed to New York to attend the highly-acclaimed New York Film Academy to hone her acting skills. However, fate would play a number on her and she instead became hot property during the New York Fashion Week, including becoming only 1 of 4 models selected personally by Victoria Beckham, out of thousands who auditioned, for her exclusive couture collection’s presentation. Since her return to Malaysia in mid-2009, Amber ventured into business and started Amber Creations, primarily focusing on events management & film production. By the end of the year, Amber Creations had secured the Ford Models Supermodel of the World license for Malaysia, which she transformed into the talk-of-the-town model search, including the broadcast of the grand finale on Star TV. With business acumen rivaling her modeling achievements, she soon opened her very own Amber Chia Academy in 2010, with emphasis on the creative art of modeling, makeup & photography.
