Lee Lin Chin is an Australian television presenter best known for anchoring SBS World News for over a decade. She is also utterly hilarious, most recently attracting attention for her own take on a 'mean tweets' video.

Apart from her superb anchoring work, many viewers tune in because of her keen fashion sense.

She is The Chin. She is legend. Marvel at her immense legacy.

But I thought Mefi's Own Stan was The Chin... (and I was so happy when he took that title away from that character in Fairly OddParents)

Anjali Rao almost had me for a while with her scarily precise diction, but Lee Lin Chin will forever be the one true news anchor. National treasure indeed.

I have never heard of her so thank you for bringing her into my life! Her Twitter feed is genius.

Oh my... if I weren't already happily married, I'd be on a plane to Australia right now.

I don't think her outfits are particularly asymmetrical, but many of them are clearly straight out of The Fifth Element.

And before there was The Chin there was Basia. Basia!
