the other day, while looking up info on one of my favourite models, du juan, i discovered something interesting and appalling. "Du Juan is the first Asian model to adorn the cover of the French edition of fashion magazine Vogue." the article goes on to discuss how "the Chinese" think Du Juan is pretty, while she holds more "appeal" to Westerners. what is with the discussion of different standards of beauty? after being told constantly that there is ONE beauty ideal, are we know saying that different parts of the world can idealize different kinds of women as beautiful? i don't know, it just got me thinking.

and i like this photoshoot, but hate how i don't like that she is styled as a "harajuku" girl (she's chinese, not japanese) but how i would hate it if a white model were styled as a harajuku girl.

model: du juan
photographer: paolo roversi
