The New Look – The March edition of Elle China marks a relaunch of the publication with the magazine going semi-monthly, giving double the number of issues and fashion. With its new look, Elle enlists the talent of designer Jean Paul Gaultier and Chinese top models Shu Pei and Kiki Kang. Gaultier styled the two girls with his own creations as well as other designers’ pieces. In front of Mark Pillai’s lens, the girls look like retro pin-ups with a rock and roll twist in the form of tattoo sleeves and bold makeup.
The Ice Queen – Drama and refinement define these icy images by Chris Nicholls shot for the November issue of Elle China. Model Tara Gill is the very image of luxury against an austere background in looks styled by Hubert Chen. Beauty by Simone Otis complements Tara’s statement leather hat with lady-like sensuality.

As we get to know Liu Wen a little better for our Model of the Month series, it only seems fitting to take a look at her past. In an editorial from the September 2008 issue of Elle China, Liu is practically a fresh face in Neo-Boho. Shot by Li Qi, she shows all the promise to become the star she has become today.
