Du Juan, Liu Wen, Tao Okamoto, Kiki Kang, Danni Li & Ping Hue Editorial for Vogue China, February 2010

Vogue China has always been more inclusive of non-Chinese models compared to the other Vogue titles, and here you have Tao Okamoto (Japanese) on the list of top Asian models. I would loved to have seen Lakshmi Menon (Indian) or a South Korean representative (Hye Park, Han Jin and/or Hyun Yi Lee) included in the mix.

Nonetheless, great job Vogue China. Keep up the good work!

I think u forgot to read the cover page for this editorial, I believe the subtitle says something like "Asian models with chinese blood."
and on the top corner of Tao's picture, it says Tao is a hybrid of Japanese and Chinese

bah and I can't read most of the characters on Tao's page...she actually does look Chinese now that I think about it.

Such a powerful editorial! I love how simple everything is.
Like Anonymous stated above, it does say that Tao Okamoto is Japanese/Chinese but she isn't. Tao herself wrote about this mistake on her blog.

Wow, Danni's lookin kinda good. Was not a fan of hers before.

Im still not on Ping's bandwagon.

Tao is pure Japanese, I wonder it was a mistake or the magazine did that on purpose.
