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!

She’s Got the Look

July 25th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

I had a friend in college, Linda, whose aesthetic I simply wanted. She was a million feet tall, with thin, pale arms, a most elegant collarbone, slim hips, long, knobby legs, the cutest, bluntest bob haircut. She had the most gorgeous Korean face that required no makeup: pensive almond eyes, high cheekbones, fair skin, a plush pout.

People like this can wear anything: microminis with a work shirt and wellies, ugly vintage muumuus with cowboy boots, billowy silk blouses with plaid shorts and knee socks, perfectly-tailored men’s suits.

I’ve never met her physical match. Until… RAIN.
