Strike A Pose

Vogue China celebrates its 8th Anniversary with a bumper September 2013 issue featuring 8 solo cover choices. Photographers Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin are enlisted to showcase the beauty of Vogue China's favourite models of the moment including homegrown talents Liu Wen, Sui He, Fei Fei Sun and Xiao Wen Ju. European models Doutzen Kroes, Kati Nescher, Daria Strokous, and Sasha Pivovarova round out the illustrious cast. The "Lucky 8" appear to be taking the mickey out of the fashion bible's namesake by striking over the top poses which lean more towards the Tyra Banks school of modelling. Perhaps most disappointing though is the notable exclusion of any black models amongst the line-up of cover candidates. Editor-in-chief Angela Cheung sheds light and disarming clarity on the selection process in the Editor's Letter; "For Vogue China's 8th Anniversary, we chose to feature 8 Chinese and Western models on 8 individual covers. Not only are each of these girls achieving great success in their careers, but they all embody in some way the Vogue spirit we wish to promote."
