Anna Wang Ad Campaign for Maybelline, Fall 2009/Winter 2010

Anna Wang has been the face of Maybelline in the Asian market for a couple of years now. She has also appeared in a couple of TV commercials with other (Maybelline) girls for the brand around the world.

However, if I'm not mistaken, this is the first time Anna Wang is featured alone in a full-page print ad for Maybelline in US market.

Model: Anna Wang (MC2)
Ad Campaign: Maybelline, Fall 2009/Winter 2010
Photographer: Unknown

pretty but she doesnt look asian ..so..that is probably why it was easier for her to 'cross' over, although, U.S. prints haven't been too bad at diversity.

Yeah, I always thought Anna Wang was suspiciously western looking but I am a fan. good for her.

i don't like her. Shes looks soo commonplace and there are way better asian faces for cosmetics.

I love the overall composition of the ad!!

why was she made to look so caucasian? Maybelline shouldn't have transformed her; they should just accept that her natural look is asian.

anne wang first came into the modeling scene in china because of her western features. it's actually good/admirable to have western facial features in china. i first saw her on the cover of HK Elle and the interview inside explained that her facial features were what separated her from other asian models. i think she looks the same as any of her photos.

I don't think she was made to be look western she has big eyes and not too flat a nose, that doesn't mean she looks Western, because asians can have those features. She's stunningly beautiful nonetheless.
