Nice to hear your opinions modelista!
Evidently VS is very fond and thinks highly of Sui He but why does it seem like Ming Xi will get the Angel contract?
This year alone Ming has actually appeared in VS related works (catalogue/lookbook/promotional line, etc.), domestic or international, and worked alongside VS girls.
Ed Razek even commented this to Ming:
This clip, an indicator/foreshadowing a possibility?

Overall good selection of faces. 21 Asian models. Pretty fair.
Last observation: #OnlyChineseWoreSunglasses
Unknown 6 is Wang Han，a promising new face.
^ Thank you for the info. Will look into. She looks good there and so did most of them. Should give unkown 9 more credit and unknown 2 was a standout in terms of her look/hair (thought she was older, if so, even cooler).
And there were 22 that actually walked and several bystanders.
Regarding the sunglasses thing which is not always a big deal. Sometimes it's not what it seems. Even though the Chinese only had them it seems like that was appropriate and for whatever the show wanted to present with this particular collection, hence the standing models all wore them too. IMO they look terrific, especially Hui Hui - so Matrix but more sophisticated and stylish.
Tasteful, pretty and mature collection (and just realised all have a bag!).

Antithesis of 1950s: China Machado
"I am China, pronounced as Chee-na. And I think it's time the world lets older women age gracefully."

China Machado, Breakthrough Model Until the End, Dies at 86
"I never thought I was good looking in any way, shape or form... I didn't look like them,
so I thought I can't be good looking, right?"
Certainly to most of us, she was before our time, but history is made with strong individuals like China who was a catalyst in changing the norms of that particular time. She have paved a path and space to people that look like her and a living representation that helped broaden the definition and image of beauty.
Evidently she was a success that came out from the harsh and obstinate times that we know of those years. And we must admit that her experience is still very much relevant today (with gradual improvements).
Beyond the glamour she's bold, elegant, charismatic and transitional as the rule-breaker-and-maker and pioneer whose career and presence have shaped the fashion community and her legacy will resonate among generations to come.

^ There's something needs to be said about this. Given how much the topic of diversity (ethnically/racially) permeate in the modelling and fashion industry at this current time. No?
Not really a big deal (or surprising) but at the same time, this gets tiring. What was the premise and prerequisite for this selection of girls? What does this editorial entail that one Asian is enough? Base on this cast, there seems to be a variety of girls, but when it comes to Asian, it has to be only ONE. Yes. In most cases.
Most of us are aware of this. Hence the icky feelings. Sure, I or we don't know the decisions and ideas behind all this but... seriously. Really?
Gonna put this on VJ (& Luigi & Iango) and not so much on Piergiorgio & co...
Anyway, Cong He would've been a perfect addition to the cast.
