Grace-ing Glossies

Meet Grace Gao (高国芝), hailing from China's Jiang Su province*.  Grace may remind you of Sun Fei Fei but those piercing eyes make her unique amongst fellow Chinese models.  Grace is relatively new to the industry, just starting as a model last year*, but she's already making it big, appearing in every issue of Numéro China thus far and just recently signing with Viva Paris*.  Can't say she's at the same level of Modeldom as Du Juan or Liu Wen, but Grace is bound to get there someday!  Let's hope she walks the Fall 2011 runways!

Looking mysterious in monochrome for Mei Yuan Gui's "Less is More" editorial featured in Numéro China #1.

Trying to hide from the spotlight in the Beauty section of Numéro China #2, shot by Tiziano Magni.

I just LOVE this editorial.  Those textures and the colors of the braids, dimly lit like that...IT'S JUST PERFECT.  From "Snow White", shot by Mei Yuan Gui for Numéro China #3.

This editorial, entitled "Heiress", totally reminds me of that amazing, artsy editorial from the June 2008 issue of Vogue China, which I actually bought. Shot by Mei Yuan Gui for Numéro China #2.

Yes, she smokes.  SAD FACE.

are models supposed to be beautiful, or are they supposed to be unique-looking?
