Flying High

Ming Xi by Lachlan Bailey for Vogue China December 2010

Ming must really be flying high considering the season she’s been having; she’s been a particular favorite for the Spring 2011 shows.  She’s rapidly reaching my list of top 10 models as well (although Du Juan is still my favorite Asian model).  Lachlan Bailey is also one of my favorite photographers; his studio shoots are some of my favorites of all time.  His photographer aesthetic is one I really like.  This shoot reminds me of a certain Karlie Kloss shoot he had done for Numéro that got quite a bit of interest.  While this is not nearly as dramatic (concept-wise and ramification-wise), it’s still a really good editorial.  Ming appears like a bird of prey or perhaps a little Eyes Wide Shut with the styling, especially that sexy Givenchy lace number.  She’s sexy and intense with a fierceness that demonstrates precisely why she’s landed all those shows.
