A decade ago, Asian models on major fashion shows were something of a rare sight, but during the past few years there’s been a serious shift in attitudes, with Asian beauty being appreciated and celebrated more than ever. An amazing representative of this trend is gorgeous Asian model Ming Xi.
This Is Probably The Most Gorgeous Asian Model Around Today
28-year-old Ming Xi (as is Xi Mengyao’s simplified birth name) was born in China’s biggest city, fascinating Shanghai, on March 8, 1989. Ming made her way up in the modelling world slowly, starting from a TV competition to featuring in the biggest fashion houses’ campaigns and catwalks.
Ming Xi is not just a (breathtakingly) pretty face, though, as she has graduated from Shanghai Donghua University, majoring in Fashion Design and Acting. The year following her graduation, the beauty decided to take part in a Chinese TV reality competition show, called “Go! Oriental Angels.”
Ming Xi’s Career
After this first appearance, she took part in the famous Elite Model Look competition, where she won the third spot. A contract with the French luxury fashion and perfume company Givenchy came as her first major contract and signified her rise in superstardom.
The Asian girl soon became an in-demand supermodel, strutting her stuff on the runways of all the major fashion houses around the world. First for Givenchy,participating in the 2011 Fall/Winter New York Fashion Week. In 2014, the gorgeous Asian model was invited to model for Michael Kors’ Shanghai Extravaganza, which took her back to her birthdplace, Shanghai. She’s also worked with Balmain, Chanel, Kenzo, Karoline Herrera, Diane Von Furstenberg and Vera Wang, among others.
Her breathtaking beauty did not go unnoticed by Victoria’s Secret either. In fact, she has appeared in every one of the brand’s world-famous fashion shows since 2013, stunning audiences with her perfect face and immaculate body.
