LIU WEN for VOGUE CHINA

Model Liu Wen photographed by Paolo Roversi and amazingly styled by Nicoletta Santoro.

A stunning Louis Vitton off the shoulder dress starts off this retro shoot filled with the look of polished sophistication.




Marvelous Prada geometric print dress. The long narrow sleeves make the dress.



Belted car coat length evening jacket with three quarter-length sleeves. That is the way to wear 3/4 sleeves... with elbow length gloves. It makes a perfect balance.



I adore this dress but I adore the long slouch gloves even better!




This poised face of elegance and grace is why Lui Wen is my favorite photographic model. Extraordinary beauty.



Such a dramatic look from the waved head of hair to the jeweled toed shoes! The rhinestone ribbon broach and cuff are wonderful and I want them. Please.



Thigh high stockings peeking out from under a playful 50's inspired full skirted cocktail jumper with tulle under-skirt. Such a sassy little look.



I simply adore the is the Rita Hayworth-esque black mane of hair in this shot. Stunning!



This long sleeved sheer black and white polka-dot silk chiffon dress with black under slip is so very lovely. It is seldom we see the elegance of a long sleeved dress these days. It is one of the reasons I love retro recreations in fashion. The knotted braid belt is perfect for this cinched waist beauty.




Ruby red lips offset a backdrop of black and white.

  1. I see what you were talking about now with the model. She has a beautiful look. Though is it just me or did she use almost the exact same face in each photo? Maybe it's just because she's trying to portray the classy woman character. Anyway I love the eyes shut one, stunning.
