A Place in the Sun

Liu Wen by Hans Feurer for Vogue China June 2011

Wow it seems like Liu is in everything lately; she’s certainly taken this industry by storm (I’ve actually lost count of how many campaigns she’s landed and editorials she’s featured in).  Nonetheless, she looks lovely in this.  I like that while she’s not uberly pale (thank God for that), her hair is the only thing used to provide contrast in this shoot.  Normally people would use this as an opportunity to play with neon color-blocking for beauty (not that that isn’t fun…).  I like how natural she appears in this and that she emotes without any additional aid; it really reminds me of the excellent profile shot of her featured in the Asian Issue of V Magazine (#71).  Avant garde craziness has its place, but every once and a while, I like a little dose of natural beauty –something which Liu has in spades.
