Twenty four year old Chinese model Liu Wen began her modeling career in 2005 when her mother coerced her into entering the New Silk Road World Model Contest, previously won by supermodel Du Juan. Wen didn’t win, but has gone on to walk for designers from Dior to Dolce, feature in pretty much every edition of Vogue, and reach number 5 in models.com’s Top 50 Models Women List anyway. Oh, and she also holds the accolade of being the first model of Chinese descent to walk for Victoria’s Secret. Following her appearance in our #Fantasia issue, styled by Robbie Spencer in Raf Simons’s first Haute Couture collection for Dior, we filmed the model pulling faces on the streets of – the city she now calls home – New York.
