This blog documents the Asian models (male and female) in the fashion media.
the styling is amazing. love the pieces. i also like the use of the "traditional chinese" people where the men and women have on way too much blush. but, the scenes have this fake-ish look which may be intended..kinda on the fence about that.
thanks AMB!d x
it's amazing to see Vogue China now referencing the nation's rich cultural history and not have to pander to western orientalism.
YES! I LOOVE Vogue China.
Oh my god! Communism history in china meet fashion!Fucking fabulous!
superd!!!!!!!!!! love it!!!!!
I love the cheap looking set. Which I think is intentional. If not..then I dont know what to say, besides DU is looking amazing.
At first I am going to hate this.Then, after pondering, I love how unexpected the editorial is, using inspiration from propaganda posters of yesteryears, hence the use of a set that mimics that of the olden times.
@ 2.55http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nM5BZjTkVYYgives this a little context
not crazy about the hair but everything else looks great
OMG! I love how they incorporated the country's history into this editorial. I HEART CHINA! And Du Juan!!!!!
Yay Du Juan you rock!!!
The set is definitely intentional. and the idea of this editorial is coming straight from the Peking Opera Stage Set during the Chinese Cultural Revolution in 1960's created by the Chinese communists party in gloried workers, farmers, and soldiers. "Traditional Chinese People" don't wear blush on their faces btw .... It's just during the cold winter, it gives them the rosy cheeks. (The blush on the cheek is just a traditional stage make up for the opera singers. There is a movie that you guys can refer to if you want to know more about the inspiration behind it. (Farewell My Concubine) I believe that China Vogue will definitely have a huge influence across Asia in the near future.. They will have so much fun getting inspired by a country that has gone thru so much in the past 5000 years...Love it !
She looks amazing! Great styling also.
the concept is great but du juan's modelling makes me sleepy...and this is coming from someone who thinks she's super gorgeous..there's no versatility. her expression in almost all the pictures. and for that reason alone, i miss daul. girl knew how to werq it.
i meant her expression is the same in almost all the pictures...they might as well have just shot one picture. sorry du, if you ever read this, i'm just being honest.
military inspired is ok though, little communist commrades and western capitalistic high-end fashion?? so laughable. good job vogue china.
the styling is perfect! i love the lighting of the photography; a really nice touch.
I like how the clothes doesn't look out of place, even the celine has that 'communist' vibe lol. and du juan's new hair is gorgeous
@ the 2 anons abovethe reason why her face looks the same in every picture here is probably because of the theme, since actors in communist dramas probably always have to be dead serious and facing the audience at the same time. I'm just guessing =P
du has another beauty ed in China Vogue's April issue
i love how plastic she looks in these, i think it's a really interesting idea (not sarcasm)
I don't think there are much thoughts put into how the model supposes to pose here. To me , Du is doing the Vogue standard issue poses. Which is perfectly fine. I am more intrigued by the overall editorial. It sets Vogue China apart of her other Vogue sisters.
this is insanely beautiful!!! ;)what a combo!!!
As much as I hate Communism, I do look at the bigger picture and support Asian models in the industry.
It IS fantastic. Wow.
