Finally! A way to express my underlying love for Asian models at the moment! First of all, their skin is simply flawless like a porcelain doll, while their faces are so symmetrical. I don't know where have much of these editorials been hiding from me, but I'm seriously going to go on a hunt for some awesome Asian editorials. Now onto Vogue China's new august edition, this editorial was purposely made as a tribute to Danish model, Freja Beha Erichsen. With the short bob hair, vibrantly red lips, and killer attitude, Tao Okamoto really pulls of Freja's edginess. I even think she takes it to higher level, which is just remarkable. Some still argue and are a bit confused over why the magazine decided to pay tribute to Freja for the reason that she isn't exactly what you would call an "icon" yet, but I still applaud Vogue China for putting together a really awesome shoot. I even think that if they called the editorial something completely different or if I had not known it was a tribute to Freja, I would still love this editorial nevertheless. Absolutely adore the styling and rock n' roll vibe it's giving off, not to mention the photograph with the coca cola bottle!

 and that leather jacket is to-die-for...so bad-ass! (want.want.want.)
