Model Tracking....Ming Xi

I've been tracking the progress of diverse models on runway for years now. It's always refreshing to see new faces and new looks paired with iconic designers. I'm a huge believer that different people can bring out different flavors even thought they are the same clothes. I guess alot depends on the designer's vision when they see models wear their clothes. Even so, it's soooooo nice to see designers branch out and reinvent themselves with new muses.So today I'm going to talk a little bit about Ming Xi. She is a newcomer to the runway scene, having become a semi-finalist in Elite's Model Look competition in 2009. Since then, she's beeeeen given a showcard on and made her runway debut in Paris! - walked for Givenchy Haute Couture in Fall/Winter 2010. More recently however, she walked in a total of 18 shows (that's right 18!!!!) at the London Fashion Week 2010 / 11. It's an amazing achievement and she well deserved it.

Not a classic beauty but I love her cheekbones and her smoldering eyes. Something very mysterious about her. She's got alot of spunk.

Her English name is actually Barbie, I personally hope she sticks with Ming Xi instead!!!!! Definitely someone to watch for the future. Very exciting.
