Sadly, as we usher in the month of April, it means that our Model of the Month series must come to an end. It has been a fun and exciting experience with Liu Wen as our March model, and the series will be taking a brief hiatus in order for us to focus on a new feature and regular postings. These last moments with Liu Wen are a fitting end to a wonderful Model of the Month.

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.
As we approach the end of March, we find out there’s a lot more to Liu than meets the surface. In the second part of our interview with our March Model of the Month, Liu Wen, she reveals her beauty secrets and the challenges of learning another language.
From working the runway to covering the latest magazines, we have seen Liu Wen do just about it all for our Model of the Month series. Now it is time to learn a little bit more about the Chinese beauty in an interview where she reveals how she was discovered and her favorite hobbies among other insights.

Liu Wen took the fall 2010 shows by storm during Milan and Paris Fashion Week. In addition to walking for labels such as Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier and Roberto Cavalli, our March Model of the Month closed Givenchy in a sleek black and white look that stole the show. Liu has certainly been a force on the runway during the past couple of seasons, but we wanted to know what she thought about modeling before she entered the industry. “It is quite different from what I imagined,” she explained. “Before I became a professional model, I thought being a model [was] just about dressing up and walking for some meters on the runway. But when I entered this world, I found out that the profession also needs a lot of effort and physical energy.”
