Ming Xi, born Mengyao Xi (or Meng Yao Xion) on 8 March 1990, is a global fashion star who walked in the 2013 and 2014 Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows. She has walked for all the top names, and is getting more and more attention every year.
Ming is from Shanghai, China, one of the most cosmopolitan Chinese cities, graduating from college with a degree in Fashion Design and Acting. In 2009, she participated in a local television modelling competition. She later took part in the Elite Model Look competition, where she was a finalist (third). Givenchy liked her look and signed her, and she was on her way.
As a Givenchy model in their Haut Couture and Ready to Wear shows, Ming began attracting attention. She came to New York in 2011 for the Fall/Winter Fashion Week, and now makes her home there. Many other top designers, such as Michael Kors and Karl Lagerfeld, soon chose her for for campaigns beside top supermodels like Miranda Kerr and Kendall Jenner.
