GEORGE TOWN: Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng’s wife Betty Chew has undergone a drastic style makeover, reported Kwong Wah Yit Poh’s street edition.
According to the daily, when she previously used to dress in mostly slacks and shorts to achieve that “career woman” look, the Kota Laksamana assemblyman has taken to sporting trendier clothes.
The 48-year-old’s style is now more elegant.
The daily wrote that during the four-day investiture ceremony held in conjunction with the Yang di- Pertua Negri Tun Abdul Rahman Abbas’ 74th birthday in July, Chew had worn stylish dresses, complete with tasteful accessories.
Although many people were caught by surprise with her transformation, the new look had garnered praise.
When she took to the catwalk in a fashion show during a bridal showcase event at the Straits Quay in Tanjong Tokong on Saturday, many people were stunned.
It was also reported that although Chew was still sporting the career woman look until recently, she adopted her new style after having to attend more functions with Lim.
Chew, who came into the limelight after Lim’s imprisonment on Aug 25, 1998, was the Durian Daun assemblyman from 1999 to 2004.
