BABEWATCH: New Face of Estée Lauder Liu Wen

April 20th, 2010 | 9 comments | Posted by Jen

Name: Liu Wen

Age: 22

Hails from: Hunan Province, China

Occupation: Model and New Face of Estée Lauder

Why She’s a Babe: Because Liu Wen’s got quite possibly the prettiest pucker we’ve ever seen. And she books modeling jobs wearing no makeup (bitch!). And because she’s the first Asian model EVAR to be a “face” of Estée Lauder. And firsts of any kind–except First Loser, aka second place–are delicious. (You may recall that Liu was also the first Asian model to walk for Victoria’s Secret, where she somehow managed to look smokin’ while wrapped in what appeared to be an industrial air-conditioning duct.)

The 5′ 10 1/2″ Chinese model will be joining a gaggle of white girls–Gwyneth Paltrow, Elizabeth Hurley, Carolyn Murphy, and Hilary Rhoda–in representing Estée Lauder, whose ads often oppress with, let’s just say, their unbearable whiteness of being.

So, huzzah!

And also: about fucking time!

    waaaay too skinny. seriously, girls, where’s your feministicity?

  2. Jen says:

    You’re a dude who just called us “girls” and you’re asking us about being feminists? Hmm.

    Of course she’s too skinny, she’s a model. They’re all too skinny and could use a sandwich (or five). For now we’re celebrating the fact that among their too skinny coterie of models is, FINALLY, a non-white face. When–and let’s not kid ourselves, IF–they decide to cast real-sized women in their ad campaigns, we’ll be celebrating that, too.

    Now you’ve got me thinking about sandwiches.

    er, “ladies”?

    Finally —– Hooah!

    Actually, NY Mag was inaccurate in saying that Liu Wen is the first Asian model to walk for Victoria’s Secret. Ujjwala Raut walked for them several times: http://www.google.com/#hl=en&source=hp&q=ujjwala+raut+victoria%27s+secret&aq=0&aqi=g1&aql=&oq=ujjwala+raut+vi&gs_rfai=&fp=27187d99a5a0b812

    Love Liu Wen, though.

    Miz Wang, I could violate my no straight women rule. ;-)

  9. [...] fatto: la modella cinese Liu Wen diventa il primo volto asiatico dei cosmetici Estée Lauder; nel frattempo le modelle nere vengono [...]
