Chinese model Liu Wen may have landed on Vogue’s Top 10 models list, but it’s another Asian supermodel making history. Fei Fei Sun or Fei Fei for short is now a pioneer with her January 2013 cover for Italian Vogue. It’s the first time in the publication’s history that a solo Asian model has landed on the cover. French Vogue, however, was the first to have a Chinese cover model in 2011 when Du Juan was front and center. Neither UK nor U.S. Vogue editions have yet.
23-year-old Fei Fei has a long list of credits to her name including catwalk appearances for Vivienne Westwood, Miu Miu and Dries van Noten to name a few. She’s the face of DKNY’s Be Delicious fragrance and Calvin Klein’s One. Check out Fei Fei’s retro-inspired fashion spread shot by famed photographer Steven Meisel. Personally, I love it. It’s mod but with a contemporary feel. The hair and make-up people did a fantastic job.
