I believe three Japanese (Rila, Miki, Kasumi), four Korean (Doona, Sora, Heejung, Hoyeon), and four Chinese (Jing, Sijia, Fernanda, Estelle).


Also, Sora finally joins the top 50 on MDC:



Quote:
Whether it’s for campaigns (Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Dior Beauty), editorial (Interview, Vogue Italia, Another Mag) or on the runway (there’s barely a major catwalk she hasn’t been on), the industry seems to have fell hard for the charm of Korean mega-watt, Sora Choi. Her delightfully edgy look coupled with strong personal style and a genuine free-spiritedness has grabbed her bookings by the likes of Steven Meisel, Bruce Weber, Mario Sorrenti, and Cass Bird — to mention but a few.
cr: models.com

Sora joins, Jing Wen, Fernanda, and Issa in the Top 50.

Cong He is the only Asian in the Hot List (hope to see Yoon Young, Hoyeon, or Chu Wong join soon!)

Pry, if you thought Sijia was Korean, as did I initially! Then I kept coming across test images from China which lead me to assume she must have been Chinese. Is Kang a common surname in China? It definitively sounds Korean. And she actually looks Korean to me as well.

After more research, yeah, Sijia is NOT Korean. I concur TheoG, she looks and could pass as Korean.

Sijia didn't sound Korean to me (unless it was 세지아 and she made it special with Sijia), but Kang did. However I also know and met people other than Korean with the surname Kang. Not the most popular but they are around for sure (and some Korean names derive from Chinese anyway and in variations).

TheoG, despite the 'Kang' perhaps Sijia's look somehow overshadowed her name, that we just assume she was Korean and not Chinese.



Guess Rina Fukushi didn't fit, but anyway, congrats to Rila, Kasumi, Sijia and pretty cool to see Doona a part of the show and not in the front row! Haha, a surprise there.

All our Asian girls killed it. Kudos to LV!






Congrats to Sora for Top 50. It's indeed strange as to why she hasn't been added yet. Insane! It was overdue.

Think Cong will eventually enter the Top 50 if she's consistent like she is, and if the industry allow and support her more. Seriously.

On the other hand, sadly, lots of names have been dropped too. I'd be interesting to see who's next (and more importantly, with staying power... then again, that's not entirely on the models themselves).

i think selling in Asia a lot doesnt necessary mean that they will have better sales with asian models in their campaigns. At least for Japan i can say that they still love to have caucasian models everywhere. Which is no excuse of course.

^ Initially wasn't sure what you meant exactly or was a bit confused. But if interpreted correctly, yes, I agree with your statement and that that's understandable and true.

Well, this is a complicated topic that can be discussed and investigated and a whole lot of research and data from the consumer to the business and these giant companies could be very helpful to unpack and understand this "thing". Also this topic is bigger than us. And obviously I'm not an expert on this specific issue yet with white/Western beauty standards, so I'll refrain from rambling too much.


Anyway it's reassuring to see brands, companies and the people behind the scenes and making the decisions to be more inclusive - especially when it is needed, fitting and created for said project/image/message/cause and not for other pressured reasons.

See whether the Cruise 2018 campaign star an Asian face/cast.

Years in the making. Takes more than sweat, tears, blood and a pretty face.
Long-term goals and aspirations. Models whom are all-arounders.
