Well, well, well…looks like golden boy Godfrey Gao isn’t the only one scoring huge fashion gigs these days. This season has morphed into a full-fledged Chinese model invasion. If you needed more proof than Vogue and Louis Vuitton turning all oriental on us, here’s Riccardo Tisci’s cast for Givenchy’s haute couture collection. As you’ll immediately notice, every face is Asian and moreover, it’s the Chinese models that dominate the picture.
Chinese homegrown muses like Ming Xi, Liu Wen, Shu Pei Qin, Sun Fei Fei, Du Juan, Jiang Xiao Yi stand side by side Japan’s Ai Tominaga, Tao Okamoto and Korea’s Hye Rim Park and So Young Kang.
Sigh. We’re so trendy right now, Style.com has even put together an editorial of Chinese-influenced looks.
