Fall/Winter 2011 New Faces Bonnie Chen

A new wave of Asian models are redefining the industry's standards of beauty at the Fall/Winter 2011 shows. Chinese model Bonnie Chen was discovered at the age of sixteen in the Elite Model Look of the Year. Modelling only part-time during school holidays, Chen placed modelling on hold to pursue a degree in Psychology in the US. Now aged twenty one, Chen reveals in an interview with Pony Ryder that "My life changed after I entered college, I started to explore the international culture and understand fashion in a more intellectual level. I think my education has definitely helped me to re-identify myself in the fashion industry and shape my career in the longer term."

Represented by Next Models in New York, Chen stands at 178 cm in height and has delicate almond shaped eyes, bee stung lips framed by a heart shaped face. Formerly a rhythmic gymnastics national champion, Chen has a grace of movement that is evident on the runway. Chen's presence was felt at ADAM, Badgely Mishkaa, Christian Siriano, Dennis Basso, Halston, Kevork Kiledjian, Monique L'Huillier, Nanette Lepore, Issa and Prabal Gurung. Chen has been photographed by Steven Meisel and Patrick Demarchelier for US Vogue and appears in the Fall/Winter 2010 Benetton campaign shot by Josh Olins.
