Disclaimer : I apologize ahead of time that this post might seem off topic and that it's rather large. Mods, please delete it if you like, I won't be offended. These are the top Asian faces in today's High Fashion. By Top I mean that they have done extensive editorial, runway, and campaign work going for them. They are the visible faces of how Asians are represented in the fashion industry. Ai is probably the most visible with Ujjwala running second. Bai Ling is rumored to be branching out into acting and it figures since she's been in the business close to 8 years or so. Korean model Kae bears a strikng resemblance to the Siberian model of the mid 90's, Irina Pantaeva who is now an actress. L to R : 1) Ai Tominaga (Japan), 2) Kae (Korea) 3) Bai Ling (Cambodia), 3) Ujjwala (India) Then there is Ujjwala. The first Indian model to ever make it internationally. You can count Yasmeen Ghauri, of which she has been compared to as the absolute first south asian model but she was Pakistani-German and has long been retired from modeling. There is also a new Asian model in the D&G ads named Rila Fukushima. Could the Japanese doll look be a phase or a definite trend that's here to stay? Only time will tell. Whatever the case may be, Asian faces do not feature prominently in the fashion industry. Perhaps in the future that might change, but for now let's hope we can see more of the Asian models that we do have on the runways. I also hope that designers like Versace, Prada, and Alberta Ferretti will include more Asian faces in the seasons to come. Thanks for letting me vent.
