Asian Queens of the Catwalk - Liu Wen

Is there any way more appropriate to mark Chinese New Year than by a celebration of the country's female beauty and feminine charms? We, certainly, cannot think of a better way but then again, we didn't really try all that hard.

Liu Wen is a Chinese female model whose work has graced the fashion catwalks of the world. Ranking among the fashion industry's highest paid professionals and achiever of a plethora of 'firsts' for an Asian model, she is regarded by many as 'China's first supermodel'.

Most interestingly, perhaps, are the reports, based on her own admission, that she does not have and has never had a boyfriend! The hectic lifestyle enjoyed by these high flyers appears to have consequences for one's social life:
There’s nobody in my life - this is very sad! she told Prestige back in 2014. Perhaps you can put it in the interview that I'm looking for a boyfriend; they can contact my agent! There's a lot of travelling with my job, and I can’t say to a boyfriend, "Please wait for me, I have to go on a job." For love you can't find someone the next day; it's life, it has to be the right person at the right time.

So what are you waiting for? Call her!
