“Almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
– Steve Jobs

Run for cover! China’s taking over (and I like it)! First sign? One of the best worldwide covers of the ever-important month of September. We have a Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin-shot cover for Vogue China featuring the Asian beauties of Du Juan, Sui He, Fei Fei Sun, Liu Wen, Ming Xi, and Shu Pei in Gucci greatness.
After that? A surprising and elegant shoot from fashion photographer Maciej Kucia called “China With Love“. Photographed in Shanghai, the spread features model Lauren Elizabeth Aitken in some incredible gowns by famed bridal designer Wang Ta Chen.
