Ming Xi | Vogue China Dec. 2010 by Damien Neva

Long before the Ford Models Blog took off its Halloween costume (OK, fake mustache) it had seemed that the Christmas lights had already crept up the trees outside the agency on Fifth Ave. Memory isn’t what it used to be, mind, but with Thanksgiving only next week the holidays must certainly be right around the corner. That of course means parties, gifts, and trips home such as the one implied by Ford’s Ming Xi featuring in Vogue China December 2010 photographed by Lachlan Bailey. “Home for the holidays” the Chinese model makes time for a story titled “Flying High” that employs an arrangement of black bars to break up the monotony of the white cyc. Styled by fashion editor Mélanie Huynh the story features feathers, lace, and silver spiked bracelets which bring a modicum of lightness to what would otherwise be heavy-looking all black ensembles. Ming does well in this story and fittingly ends a the calendar year flying high.

Ming Xi also featured last month in Vogue China Nov. 2010 in a story by photographer Hans Feuer and fashion editor Anne Christensen.

I love the cloths, make up, hair, styling, photogragh it self. But to see the model is very difficult. She looks unhealthly due to her under weight to the point where it looks like a bag of bones. Sadness is all I could feel. Very hard to enjoy it.

By Western standards Chinese are already thin on average. That occasionally someone is born tall and skinny instead of short and skinny is not a violation of political correctness. There are skinny people in the world, usually with fast metabolisms and not via anorexia.

Even to take average models, what looks good in a photograph might look abnormal in person–some are not so attractive in 3-D because their physiology can be more bone than muscle and fat.

Where maybe a “beanpole” kid gets ostracized in school and picked on, it is ironic that now they have to be singled out for looking good in a photograph. If she were 5’4″ and this thin nobody would say anything. She looks to be about 6′ tall and long-limbed. Unless they airbrushed her I don’t see any bones sticking out.

She looks great and as everyone knows historically most Asian are slim or even skinny cause they eat healthy food. Now a days Asian eat more Western food and they are becoming chubbier.
I like the clothing line, the make up and pix.
