^I actually had the pleasure to meet her as she was heading to Lanvin. I was sold before but meeting her in person really made the impression that I'm sure most casting directors have seen first hand. Absolutely, a star in the making.
"Exclusive interview: Sui He"
Sui He is really a beautiful model. You see her on the catwalk and she is different from the other Asian models we are used to see at the shows. She has something, in her way of looking, of moving. Sui He is already quite a big name in the fashion world, and we see her very often on the most important catwalks, and backstage.
Backstage before the beginning of the Anteprima show we talked to her, and asked her something more about her life, her career, her plans. Her what she told us. Alessio Cristianini

Last question, because we see you all the time busy with photographers who - sometimes not even so politely - ask you to pose for them backstage (and not just one, but 4, 5, 6 in a row…). Do you ever get upset at them?
Actually it is ok, it means they like me. If they did not like me, they would never want to take pictures of me
