Take A Bow

Vogue China assembles a galaxy of modelling's brightest stars  in time for the New Year's celebrations. Photographer Stockton Johnson captures Liu Wen, Constance Jablonski, Lindsay Wixson, Sui He, Fei Fei Sun, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Emma Pei, Carolyn Murphy, Du Juan and Xiao Wen Ju in party ensembles befitting of any occasion. Standouts amongst the cast are Constance Jablonski and Fei Fei Sun both in a Viktor & Rolf, Lindsay Wixson looking as pretty as a picture in Chanel, and Carolyn Murphy and Liu Wen in red carpet gowns from the Jason Wu and Ralph Lauren collections. As much as I love this editorial and eclectic cast selection, my only quibble is, why no Joan Smalls, Cora Emmanuel, Anais Mali, Grace Mahary, Melodie Monrose or Nyasha Matonhodze? Vogue China has played a major role in bolstering the profile of its homegrown modelling talent, but shouldn't the magazine's call for diversity be extended to all models of colour?
