Girl of the Moment: Lui Wen

Givenchy Fall 2011
At age 23, model Lui Wen has quite a lot in her modeling background. 2005 marked the beginning of her career. Her big beginning was to be on the cover of Chinese FHM. Hard work got her to model for Vogue China and Harper's Bazaar China, and these gigs caught the eyes of Cosmo in which she modeled Karl Lagerfeld and Viktor and Rolf, which made these designers want her on their runways. Now she has DKNY Jeans, The GAP, Alexander Wang, Converse, Bergdorf Goodman, Calvin Klein, Vivienne Tam, Elle, Allure, i-D, Teen Vogue, French Vogue, Spanish Vogue...I'd continue the list but then you'd have a bulky paragraph of her accomplishments.

Anyway, it doesn't only take 'discovering a model' for her to become famous as it is with a lot of the top model stories. With Lui Wen, sheer hard work and perseverance got her to where she is today. She started small and became a top model after years and years of trying.
