Liu Wen has been chosen as Numero Uno's (China) September 2014 cover model and is earning rave reviews for her photo. Her receiving this cover is indicative of her status as one of the best paid and most in-demand models in the fashion industry.
Forbes magazine recently released a report that listed her as the number four ranked top earning model in the world with earnings of approximately $7 million per year.
Her Numero Uno cover has her wearing a sweater and leggings as she sits down on a bench with one hand hand under her chin. However it is the look on her face that has fashionistas excitedly talking about the picture as she wears some very interesting makeup which creates a slightly edgy, creepy look on her face. The picture shows the unique versatility of this top model who is generally pictured looking sensual and glamorous but in this cover shoot portrays a bit of an edge.
The release date of the cover photo is also very interesting to many fashion observers as the top model has been the center of a social media 'debate' about another cover, the September 2014 issue of US Vogue. The model who is now viewed by most of the fashion experts as one of the top 10 models in the world was not included in the cover shoot of US Vogue with the current crop of top models.
The exclusion has set off a debate of huge proportions as many of her fans and fashion bloggers were astounded that Liu Wen, the first Asian model of her generation to earn a place on Forbes' top earnings model list and a model who is considered one of the "New Supers" was not included and thus there are some who think that Numero Uno's release of their September cover with only Liu Wen on the cover is not a coincidence.
The one thing about Liu Wen that is indsiputable is that she is one of the top models in the world and with cover photos such as that found on Numero Uno she will be an elite model in great demand for a very long time.
