It's really interesting to see people appreciate her looks. I can definitely believe the "ugly" childhood comment. Actually even now, my friends and I don't think she's particularly beautiful. I'm being kind here because the actual words they used to describe her weren't so kind. It really goes to show how "inclusive" fashion is of different kinds of beauty.
Anyway, any thoughts @bingeonvogue? I personally prefer Fei Fei/Ming whereas Liu has that cookie cutter look that makes Asian people go crazy over. Not a fan of Sui's look so I won't comment. Let's just say that she has probably my least favourite face of all the Asian models....
@ZeroDiet I didn't know her before but scrolling through this forum, but I'm not a fan either. Also I'm not sure why but something about her eyes looks somehow off to me? Kind of like how people who wear circle lenses look or something.
YES I think other nationalities actually tend to appreciate Asian models more than Asians (at least out of people I know) A guy I know models here (not established at all, he just wanted to try it out before grad school) and meets models all the time and I am astounded by how terrible his taste in girls is. He doesn't think models are pretty, even Ji hye Park, who is one of the few Korean models I really like, while he thinks girls who look like this
are pretty. Hundreds of girls walking out of plastic surgery clinics here every day who look exactly like that. I have no idea who that photo is of by the way I just looked at who he was following on Instagram and she was the first one. (That username... )
I like Fei Fei too but my opinion of Ming changes with every photo of her My personal favorite is Ju Xiaowen Soo Joo isn't really my type aesthetically but I love her because I love the attitude she oozes in her street style photos and she just seems like she would be a great person to hang out with haha
