Wang Xiao

At the request of socialitedreams, Wang Xiao is up next on this blog's model feature!
Xiao is a model from China known for her hair, uniquely cut in a boyish, strict bob that not many of us could pull off, yet which she does with a feminine twist.  She started off by signing with Wilhelmina, and within the same year, was asked to be photographed by Steven Miesel.  But her true breakthrough came when she signed a fragrance contract with Calvin Klein One. 
There's always a searing intensity in her photos, even when she dons longer hair and poses with candy.  She draws you in, and there's something about her photos that's slightly disconcerting.
She shows the same kind of intensity on the streets, with her eccentric and edgy off-duty looks:
In an interview with Elle, when asked whether she thinks about anything when walking down the runway, she replies, "No. It’s just a walk. It’s easy for me. I’m never nervous."  Luckily, it shows!  Here's a look at the shows she scored during Spring/Summer 2012:
Luca Luca

Rebecca Taylor
Charlotte Ronson
Yigal Azrouel
Kevork Kiledjian
United Bamboo
If there are any other models you'd like to see featured, just give me a shout if you haven't done so already!

  3. Really nice model, it's always nice to discover the names of such important models that you see in lots of shows but you don't even know their names...(at least I don't know).

  12. Wow...she looks soooo pretty:) I love her stunning features and yes, she defo can pull off the bob hair look. I always think it's hard for Chinese women to pull off the bob hair.

    I love her in the street style shots, sooo casul yet stylish!!!
