China’s Beauty Stars: One’s to Watch

  • By Suzanne Scott

China is big in the fashion and beauty world right now.  Economists are predicting that the luxury goods market in China will grow by a further 20 percent a year, is it any wonder that the most successful models of the moment are also Chinese? Here’s ELLE’s guide to the ones to watch.


Du Juan (杜鵑)

  • Born: 1982 in Shanghai

Du Juan is the original Chinese supermodel and, to some extent, helped pave the way for the current popularity surge for Asian models. Prior to delving into the world of modelling Du Juan studied as a ballerina and excelled in classical ballet at the Shanghai Academy of Dance for nine years. After winning the title of Miss China in 2003, she quit ballet and made a move into full-time modelling and since then she has gone on to walk for designers such as Givenchy and has starred in numerous advertising campaigns.

She has walked in countless shows including Rodarte, Alexander Wang, Fendi and Bottega Veneta, starred in campaigns for the likes of H&M and ck Calvin Klein and is ranked  6th in Top 50 Models.
