Liu Wen Walks For Victoria's Secret, 2009-2010

Liu Wen became only the second third Asian model to walk the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show last week. Most news outlets incorrectly reported Liu Wen as the first Asian model to do the show.

The first honor went to Ujjwala Raut who did the show in 2003-2004 show Yasmeen Ghauri who walked for the show in 1996 (unconfirmed), followed by Ujjwala Raut in the 2003-4 show.

The 2009-2010 Victoria's Secrety show will be aired on CBS on December 1st.

Daniel Liu & Hana Mayeda Editorial for GQ China, November 2009

Now that Condé Nast has launched GQ China (in October 2009), I hope to see more Asian male models getting work and recognition in the international scene.

Foreign markets can be risky but highly profitable. New York Magazine reported that Vanity Fair Italia was one of the most profitable magazines on Condé Nast stable of publications. Aside from revenues generated from the ad pages, the magazines are sold mostly from newsstands at full price (€4-€5).

In the US the revenues for publishers are generated primarily from ad pages where rates are determined by circulation numbers. So to beef up the circulation numbers, most magazines offer cheap annual subscriptions ($12-$19/year) to the readers.

Introducing Ping Hue Cheung from Major Model Management

I have received a few e-mails about this new girl at Major Model Management. She is Chinese but based on the way she spells her name, she's not from China. She's probably either Taiwanese or from Hong Kong. Does anyone have more information on her?

Introducing Sun FeiFei from Elite London

Sun FeiFei won 3rd place in last year's Elite Model's Look World competition and has appeared on numerous fashion magazine covers and editorials, primarily for Chinese publications.

But with her recent appearance on the runways of London and Paris at the Spring/Summer 2010 collections and representation by Elite London, we should see some international work from her soon.

Introducing Xi Mengyao Ming Xi from China from the Elite Model's Look World Competition, 2009

Ming Xi Xi Mengyao (a.k.a. Barbie -- is there a WORST western name for a Chinese girl?) from China was one of the finalists at the recent Elite Model's Look World competition. She didn't win -- Julia Saner from Switzerland did -- but her show card appeared on, which is a good thing. It will be interesting to see if she makes it in the international scene.

Elite Model's Look World competition is definitely NOT in the same realm as Ford Model's Supermodel of the World in terms of generating attention and creating top models. However, I think Stefanie Seymour and Linda Evangelista started out as Elite Model's Look finalists in the early 1980s.

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.
