Liu Wen 
Liu Wen (simplified Chinese: 刘雯; traditional Chinese: 劉雯; pinyin: Liú Wén; born January 27, 1988) is a Chinese fashion model.  She is the first model of East Asian descent to walk the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.  In 2010, she became the first spokesmodel of Asian descent for Estée Lauder, alongside Constance Jablonski and Joan Smalls. In 2012, The New York Times named her "China’s first bona fide supermodel."[5] In 2013, she became the first Asian model to ever make Forbes magazine's annual highest-paid models list.  In April 2014, American Vogue noted her as having "by far, the biggest social-media audience of any model" in their coverage of social media's rise in the fashion industry.

Liu was born into a working-class family on January 27, 1988, in Yongzhou, Hunan.  Liu is an only child. In her teens, her mother encouraged her to be professional, to eat well, and to enter the modeling contest which led to Liu's discovery.

Early career and success[edit]
Liu started her modeling career in 2005[9] when she entered the New Silk Road World Model Contest, a contest previously won by international covergirl Du Juan. Although she did not win the competition, Liu soon began working full-time as a model, eventually becoming a national success story after working with Chinese fashion magazines like Vogue and Harper's Bazaar.

In September 2007, Liu caught the attention of the international fashion industry when she shot an editorial in clothes designed by Karl Lagerfeld and Viktor and Rolf[1][9] and would later walk for both of those brands. She was invited to Paris in 2008 to sign with an agency and participate in Paris Fashion week.[9]

In February 2008 she appeared in four fashion-related articles for Chinese Vogue.[9] She debuted on international runways in the same month, walking for Burberry and closing the fall Trussardi show in Milan. The week after, she walked for Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Hermès in Paris.[2] A year later in February and March 2009, Liu Wen led the entire modeling industry by walking 74 shows in New York, London, Milan, and Paris for the Fall 2009 ready-to-wear season. It remains the record for the most shows ever walked by a model of Asian descent in a single season.[10] She followed that up with the Spring 2010 ready-to-wear season, walking 70 shows in the same four cities. This statistic made her the second most booked model for the season following French model Constance Jablonski.[11]

Liu has appeared in campaigns for Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli, Oscar de la Renta, Hugo Boss, Alexander Wang, Rag & Bone, H&M, Marni, Lane Crawford,
