Glad that Ford got an Asian model. It's a must these days!

Its about time. For years, these contests have always chosen the causasian models with one asian selected as the token. Rarely have Asian models ever been in contention except for Charo Ronquillo. The fashion industry is finally taking note or perhaps they smell money and realize that Asia is the way to go. Still no asian model on the cover of American Vogue and this is the 21 century. My guess is that Wintour will select an Asian for the cover of their summer issue in conjunction with the Olympics.

American Vogue? Maybe not. French Vogue, yes. Vogue Italia..of course. I dont believe American Vogue's main focus is fashion anymore but more of a social magazine for the supposedly upper crust set. The socialites. Actresses. Costume balls. Very old school. French vogue is the edgier sister with more fun things that inspire. I Heart Carine!
