Outfit by outfit, this Chinese supermodel has pushed Asian beauty into the spotlight
It’s undeniable that Liu Wen is a master of poise and composure on the catwalk. It’s no wonder, then, that she became the first Chinese supermodel to walk the runway for Victoria’s Secret in 2009. Wen is also the first international spokesperson of Asian descent for cosmetics giant, Estée Lauder. While she says she doesn’t consider herself a beauty, especially in the context of what’s perceived as beautiful by traditional Chinese standards, she’s also proud that the prevalence of Asian models in the industry has promoted an understanding that beauty can come in different forms.
