    Age: 31
    Runway Debut: Burberry F/W 2008
    Experience Level: 12 years industry veteran
    Status: Active and on standby
    Title: China's runway icon
    Ability: Fit wide range of brands, mood maker, and versatile AF
    Signiture Walk: The silent ankle twister (the current subdue version, the jolly dimples version and the retired, ferocious arms sway - her rather fierce mode)

    Record: Still the undisputed Asian model to walk the most shows in a single run of the four capitals with over 70 appearances

    Facts to Know:

    Never have she missed a RTW season yet; F/W 2019 is her 23rd round consecutively

    Asked her first opening/closing a major show: it was Givenchy while walking the first time

    After 4 years of absence, she made her couture return at Schiaparelli S/S 2018 and only

    Even though it originally didn't started with her, she was still undeniably the face behind the movement for more Asian representation across fashion shows

    Most celebrated Chinese runway model from high end to Victoria's Secret

    She's runway royalty for her consistency and longevity given her on-going performances

    In an interview, Liu said she enjoys walking shows and have yet to fall down


    !!! For some models, their status/stardom may have prevented them from walking certain shows... or, from their point of view, it's not necessary to walk now ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    ----- shows that can now be crossed off -----

    Sacai - walked FW19 RTW
    Valentino - walked SS19 RTW & spring couture 2019 back-to-back
    Versace - walked pre-fall 2019, men's FW19 & FW19 RTW back-to-back-and-back

    ----- shows where she could've walk during her heyday -----

    Acne Studios
    Diesel Black Gold (what happened, more runway in the future?)
    Giorgio Armani
    Jil Sander
    Mulberry (will they go back to runway?)

    ----- shows after her peak, as brands became covetable -----

    J.W. Anderson
    Longchamp (new to the game, a must show to walk now)
    Simone Rocha (considered big for LFW & the top girls are there)

    ----- relatively not so important, though could've walked -----

    Emporio Armani
    Versus (inconsistent, any runway shows?, walked big sister's however)

    ----- not going to happen -----

    Christian Lacroix

    Notable Highlights:

    After a decade, is one of two 'TOP MODELS' from the '00s to walk F/W 2019 with a contested showlist in terms of quality (12) and quantity (15) that could match the current girls of the moment - an unexpected outcome coming from her generation, her best shows in four years

    Rank #1 Top Walker with 74 shows (F/W 2009) - tied with Yulia K.

    During her prime, she has walked under all the top casting director's shows (including Marsh); fast forward today F/W 2019 saw her walking the top four CD's shows accounting all 13 of her 15 shows

    Rank #2 Top Walker with 70 shows (S/S 2010) - after Constance J.
