This blog documents the Asian models (male and female) in the fashion media.
love the black & white
she looks beautiful but why a dunce hat????
This is awful. To put a Chinese young person in a dunce cap. Does anyone know that Mao used dunce caps in the cultural revolution during public ceremonies of degradation to shame intellectuals??? Most were executed shortly after. Pretty awful to try and put that into fashion. Maybe this wasn't his meaning...But I think next time W magazine should be more careful. Fashion has traditionally been influenced by history. However I think the terror of the cultural revolution should be left in the past.
I know it's weird but the shot reminds me sooooo much at the Vogue Italia editorial with Chanel Iman for the black issue, I don't know why, it's not the same photographer, she isn't black and all but I don't know when I see this pic it reminds me so much of that editorial, maybe the hat, I don't know, lovely Shu Pei anyways :))
I agree with Anonymous. Beautiful girl, reprehensible choice of head gear.
