Yesterday Forbes released its annual list of the world’s highest paid models. The list hasn’t changed much over the last decade – for the seventh consecutive year Gisele Bundchen was the top earning model, pulling in an outrageous $42m – followed not-so-closely behind by Miranda Kerr, Adriana Lima, Kate Moss and Candice Swanepoel et al, all on comparatively plebian salaries ranging between $3.2 and $7.2.
Chinese model Liu Wen is all smiles on the cover of the latest T Magazine. The inside story, titled “The Liu Wen Express”, follows Wen as she travels back to her home province of Hunan.
There is no dearth of model lip-synch videos, and Rodarte did all of them one better by playing a rousing game of 20 questions during the fitting for its spring show.
Happy Shark Week, everyone! As you all well know, it’s Discovery Channel‘s annual Shark Week, so naturally, we felt that the only proper way to celebrate was to bring you the second installment of “When Sharks Attack, Fashion Edition.” And really, what better way to celebrate than to photoshop sharks into our favorite fashion photos?
You know that old, insensitive stereotype that all Chinese people look exactly alike? It’s bogus, but apparently the people at British Vogue think it’s true. In a recent story about the rise of Asian models, the photo editors captioned a photo of Chinese model Liu Wen with another Chinese model named Du Juan.
Leave it to Vogue China to read our mind and combine class and sass in successful fashion. Picturing Asian model Liu Wen in looks by Yves Saint Laurent, Donna Karan and Celine, we’re totally loving their urbane take on buttoned up beauty. Think: double breasted blazers, crisp white blouses, cool takes on tailoring and even (gasp!) a slit or two.
