Du Juan & Emma Pei Editorial for China Vogue, September 2008

Du Juan has been on every issue of China Vogue since June 2008 — that translates to 5 consecutive months of model domination in that magazine. As much as I love Du Juan, I feel that China Vogue needs to expand its gene pool to include other Asian models, including the non-Chinese girls. Granted, it has featured Ai Tominaga (March 2008), Han Jin and Eugenia Mandzhieva (March 2008) and Juliana Imai (January 2008) but there are many more Asian girls in the world than just Chinese girls. Ditto with Vogue Nippon and Korea Vogue. I think Vogue Nippon and Korea Vogue rarely use other Asian girls except those of their own nationality.

That said, this editorial with Du Juan and Emma Pei shot on the streets of New York City for China Vogue, September 2008 is simply amazing. The clothes are spectacular (BRAVO to the stylist) and the city vibe is breathtakingly real. These photos make DKNY’s old ad campaigns look almost amateurish — DKNY is famous for using New York streets as the background for its ads.

Du Juan is great here as usual but Emma Pei blows me away. She is spotting so many moods and looks here that I feel like I’m seeing three different Emmas in this editorial — my favorite being EVIL EMMA in Photo #9. Love her death stare!! I am terribly disappointed she is not doing any shows in NY, Milan or Paris this year. Does anyone know why she’s missing?

N.B.: This is one of my favorite editorials this year. Am soooo loving the New York scene.
