US Vogue this month have dedicated an editorial to “Asian Women on the Rise” creating lots of talk, Fashionlogie has a good post about it, as you know I’ve been following Asian models for sometime and I’m glad to see the “rise” of them! Included in the editorial image are: Du Juan, Tao Okamoto, Lee Hyun, Hyoni Kang, Liu Wen, Bonnie Chen, So Young Kang, and Lily Zhi. Photographed by Steven Meisel, inspired by the Cecil Beaton image from their 1948 June issue.
