Kiki Kang Editorial for Maire Claire China, October 2009

It seems like Du Juan, Hye Park & Han Jin are all in semi-retirement and Lakshmi Menon, Liu Wen & Tao Okamoto have reached their peaks. So it only makes sense that new Asian faces are storming the doors to make a name for themselves.

Shu Pei is definitely the latest Asian star of the moment with editorials in W Magazine & US Glamour in January 2010 alone. That is pretty impressive for any model, much less an Asian girl. So who is the up-and-coming model?

Kiki Kang just scored an impressive ad campaign with Topshop, Spring 2010 this season. And her look is very versatile, based on this editorial and others I've seen. What do you think?

Model: Kiki Kang (New York)

Isn't that Marie Claire? I wish my cousin found me more magazines while she was in China! All she could find was Vogue and Elle. :\

AMB... you're obviously talking out of your ass lol... Liu wen/Tao reached their peak??

Liu Wen has an upcoming campaign for Calvin Klein.

I think Liu Wen will continue to be hot for a few more seasons. Tao, needs a new haircut. Du Juan, is already at legendary status, so whether she works more or less, she is already cemented as an influential asian face.

I like Kiki, she looks elegant and intelligent. But I dont think Kiki will be as huge as Liu Wen. But Kiki will be the perfect Guess Girl I think. Shu Pei is cute on the runway but she doesnt stand out in photoshoot...So that limits her options a little. Hyoni is unique and fresh, but she needs to grow into her looks.

Dont worry, there'll be tonnes of new faces next year.
