Absolutely Flawless

Chinese model Sui He was positively glowing when I ran into her at the Altuzarra casting in New York in early September. Little did I know that at the time, He had very good reason to be grinning from ear to ear. The Wenzhou native was celebrating her 23rd birthday having just received the news that she had been handpicked to be the global face of Shisheido Cosmetic's make-up line, and Shisheido skincare and sun care in Asia. Shisheido's aritistic director Dick Page gushed to WWD, "Sui He is a beautiful woman, of course, but she is also graceful and intelligent with a sweet sense of humour." Hiroshi Maruyama, general manager of Shisheido's international marketing department added, "Sui He embodies Shisheido's holistic sense of beauty. She seems to radiate a glow from within." He's cosmetics coup is the latest in a succession of professional highs which include appearances on the covers of Pop, V, i-D Magazine and W, campaigns for Ralph Lauren, Karl by Karl Lagerfeld, Lane Crawford and H&M, and a coveted spot in last year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Meeting He was one of the rare occasions where I buckled during the Spring/Summer 2013 season and requested a photo posing alongside one of my favourite faces in fashion.
