editorialesque » liu wen for vogue china

a staple in terms of model casting for vogue china, there hasn’t been an issue without liu wen of marilyn model managment for a significant amount of time. here, wen appears editorially through the lens of lachlan bailey. with an urban edge, liu is photographed in motion wearing some of fall’s greatest fall pieces. from the sleek pony tail to the metallic make-up- the urban theme is executed well while pieces from a wide range of collections are presented. while i like liu & admire the direction taken for this editorial; i wish the spread was taken to the next level. the use of natural lighting, likely enhanced with reflectors & such, plays well against stoned stairs & is greatly complimented by architecture. these aspects could’ve been much more focused on & mirrored through the clothes. the sportmax pieces that were pulled, seen in black, have the most stylistic relativity when considering the set location but much of what is seen treads the line of boring. liu has the model potential, we’ve seen it before- as have we with the photographic work of lachlan bailey. though i like the spread, there is a difference between that & love.

editorialesque » liu wen for vogue china

through the lens of mark segal, vogue china favorite, liu wen appears for the may issue of chinese vogue. keeping it chic with western styling & cowgirl styling, liu appears flawlessly. what i love about the spread is the opportunity taken to showcase liu’s versatility through another angle of design. while i don’t particularly favor western themed, well, anything- i do value model versatility above all. liu can also be seen in the spring campaigns for the gap, estée lauder & cK by calvin klein. represented marilyn model management, liu wen is one of china’s biggest & baddest female models of the current time.

editorialesque » liu wen for vogue china

represented by marilyn model management, liu wen appears once more for the pages of vogue china. shot for the april issue by hans feurer & styled by anne christensen, it seems as though spring will be as overwhelmed with a single color, much like the fall was draped in black. as a leading chinese female of the current asian invasion in fashion, liu wen appears regularly for the pages of vogue china & is, for the most part, expected to appear in every issue, if not every cover. though i admire liu & applaud her historical, groundbreaking career path that is blazing trails for many others to follow, i will say that her constant appearances are becoming a bit redundant. ranking as fashion’s no. 10 female model, other asian females are waiting in the wings as liu opens the doors. the spread see here channels more of a 90’s inspiration, i feel. liu trades in her long black locks for a crisp bob & appears beachside in some of springs hottest whites. casual styling, fitting for the spring.

represented by marilyn model management, top model, eniko mihalik appears for the december italian vogue beauty supplement. giving us a tasted of what we can expect for our spring wardrobes, eniko is seen looking something like a goddess complete with a golden tan &  sophisticated photographic presence. shot by the talented greg kadel, i love the spread for it’s use of light; the strategic placement of eniko against the sun are captured perfectly. a transparent vuitton trench coat appears with as much regality as a green satin gown & as sexually charged as a fur coat matched with a bathing suit. from the model to the styling, to the photographer- all elements collectively equal greatness. italian vogue is among the most respected when considering creative reputation in the world of high end editorial. even at the end of the year, they appear to be knockin shit out of the park all the way into the next year of 2011. eniko ranks no. 11 within the top 50 female models of fashion.

eniko mihalik for russh

represented by marilyn model management, eniko mihalik appears for russh magazine for the month of december. shot by benny horne, russh is an australian based publication & is carefully crafting beautiful editorial with each issue they produce. eniko showcases versatility with each shot that is used for the issue’s beauty section & of course, their fashion. the last cover is the cover image for the issue & showcases eniko au naturel. of the shots, my favorite is the first image- however, i appreciate fully the choice to showcase different dimensions of mihalik with each shot. whereas the fashion shot is much more creative in concept, the beauty shot diverts attention to the metallic eye shadow & the newstand cover showcases a stripped sensibility as a new definition of iconicism. as i have been in the past, im betting i will be pleased with the feature editorial, as im hoping that a solid direction in both concept & style was captured. eniko ranks no. 9 within the top 50 models.
