Katy Perry has really brightened things up at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. During her lively finale performance in 2010, she showed why she is every boy’s “Teenage Dream.” Katy hit the runway in a bold yellow mini and leather lace-up boots as she belted out a trio of her favorite tracks, including “Hot N Cold” and “California Girls.”

Liu Wen, Chinese Supermodel



China's Breakout Star, Liu Wen

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com
Liu Wen.

Liu Wen. If you haven't heard of Liu, you're probably not Chinese. She is widely considered to be China's first true supermodel, and is well known by the country's billion-plus people. Liu also happens to be one of the highest-paid models in the world, and that's probably not a coincidence.

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


People on social media love Liu, and she has branched out into all sorts of different segments of the Asian media market.

Let's learn a little bit more about the fascinating Liu Wen.


Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Liu is from a humble background. Born on 27 January 1988 in Yongzhou, Hunan, Liu Wen entered a modeling contest at her mother's suggestion.

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Not surprisingly given her classic looks, Liu Wen was discovered at the contest - it was the summer 2005 New Silk Road World Model Contest - even though she did not win it. Many, many top models owe their careers to entering a contest and losing it.

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Liu started getting assignments soon afterwards with the likes of the Chinese editions of Vogue and Harper's Bazaar.

Liu's breakout moment was when she was noticed for an editorial she shot with Karl Lagerfeld and Viktor and Rolf. That led to an invitation to Paris in 2008 for Paris Fashion Week.

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


After that, Liu was on a role. She debuted in Milan in February 2008 and in New York in 2009.

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Liu walked in the 2009 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. She was the first Chinese to appear in it. She followed that up with another appearance in the 2010 show. And the 2011 show. And the 2012 show.

With Victoria's Secret expanding into China and holding its 2017 Fashion Show in Shanghai, it wouldn't be a shocker if Liu Wen walked in the 2017 show, too - if she wants to, that is. We shall see.

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Covers can tell a lot about a top model. By now, Liu has a ton of covers. Below is a sample from recent years. You'll notice that China is on there quite a bit:

Liu's honors include being on the first Numero China cover. It was the first time ever that a Numero premiere issue did not feature Kate Moss.

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Liu Wen is approaching the top of the model heap in terms of the amount of money that she pulls in every year. She regularly makes the Forbes list of the world's highest-paid models, and top models make a lot of money. In 2016 alone, Liu Wen made an estimated $7 million. That isn't exactly Gisele Bündchen territory (who has been known to make upwards of $40 million) - but that ain't beanbag, either. Liu Wen made similar amounts in 2015, 2014, 2013....

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Believe me... any time you are on any Forbes list, life is good. Believe me.

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Liu wore an Apple Watch on a Vogue China cover. It was considered a breakthrough moment for the crossover between fashion and Technology.

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Liu has branched out into other areas. She says that she would like to be an actress.

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Liu appears on the Chinese reality television show, "We’re in Love." Wen is paired with Korean celebrity Siwon for the show, which requires the duo to complete tasks while pretending to be a couple in love.

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Liu also says that she would like to become a stylist or fashion designer someday.

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Liu considers her own personal style to be "tomboyish, vintage and comfortable."

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Liu is great friends with Joan Smalls, Constance Jablonski and Lindsey Wixson, all of whom she has worked with before.


Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


She also is tight with Shu Pei Qin, Du Juan, Fei Fei Sun, Sui He, Xiao Wen Ju, and Ming X. Du Juan, incidentally, won that Silk Road modelling contest in a previous year.


Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Liu has represented Estée Lauder along with her chums Jablonski and Smalls.

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com

Liu posts a lot of personal photos on her Instagram account.

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Liu currently also has over 60k followers on Twitter - probably many more by the time you read this.

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


A lot of the personal photos that Liu posts on her accounts are very artistic. She has a good eye as a photographer.

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


The New York Times called Liu a supermodel in 2012. Now, the New York Times alone doesn't exactly decide such things, but it is very close to the fashion scene and makes or breaks models' careers (Jaime King owes a lot to it, for instance). So, what the New York Times says about a specific model is worth mentioning. In this case, the NY Times seems to have been spot on.

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


OK! China soon followed the New York Times' lead. It crowned Wen as the first Asian supermodel in its April 2013 issue.


Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Liu's campaigns have included  Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli, Oscar de la Renta, Hugo Boss, Alexander Wang, Rag & Bone, H&M, Marni, Lane Crawford, Bergdorf Goodman, Diesel, Gap, and Vivienne Tam.

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Liu is a hard worker. She routinely sets records for the most shows walked at fashion shows.

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


All in all, Liu Wenn is blazing a trail for asian supermodels. Still at her peak, Liu will be leading the way for years to come.

Liu Wen supermodel victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Liu Wen told Vogue:
I feel the most beautiful when I’m the most relaxed—for example, after a productive day of work or during a comfortable, rested afternoon. But I also feel great when I reunite with friends after a long time. When my inner mood is positive, I also feel great on the outside.

Angela Lindvall, Hot Jewelry Maven



Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com
Angela Lindvall.

Angela Lindvall (January 14, 1979) is familiar to Victoria's Secret fans because she has appeared in many of its commercials, such as the Victoria's Secret Holiday Commercial in 2004.

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Well, that is, besides walking in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows in 2000, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008, of course.

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Angela also has made quite a name for herself outside the Victoria's Secret universe, both in the traditional film/tv outlets for supermodels, and in the world of fashion.

Let's learn a little more about Angela Lindvall.

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


It's easy to assume, just from glancing at her name, that Angela Lindvall is from some Scandinavian country and barely speaks a few words of English. "Lindvall" is Swedish, and every other person in Stockholm either is named that or knows someone named Lindvall. In fact, Angela is an Oklahoma girl, born in Midwest City, but grew up in Lee's Summit, Missouri (her family still liver there).

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Angela's dad is a pharmacist and her mother is a medical technologist/massage therapist. Lindvall got into modelling when she had a growth spurt in her early teen years and her friends suggested it.

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Tagging along with her sister, who really wanted to become a model, Angela got into the business and was spotted at a Kansas city fashion show when she was only 14. Angela took a few years to "be a kid," then signed a contract with IMG.

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Angela has been on a ton of covers in countries all around the world. These include, just as a sampling from the States and UK:

UK: 'i-D' - November 1996; 'Dazed and Confused' - November 1998; 'Vogue' - September 1998, June 1999 & June 2000; 'Nova' - September 2000; 'i-D' - October 2000; 'Vogue' - January 2001; 'Vogue' - November 2004; 'i-D' - October 2006; 'Vogue' - June 2010

US: 'W' - October & December 1997; 'Elle' - August 1998; 'Vogue' - February 1998; 'W' - November 1998; 'Elle' - March 2000; 'i-D' - October 2000; 'Vogue' - November 2000; 'Nylon' - September 2001; 'Elle' - November 2001; 'Muse' - June 2010; 'Foam' - July 2012; 'Corduroy' - Winter 2012

In short, Angela has covers on all the top mags, including  ELLE, Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire, Numero, Vogue, I-D and W.

Some recent covers as of this writing:

  • August 2015:  Elle Korea
  • May 2015:  Harper's Bazaar Singapore
Lindvall says that Paris is "bit more relaxed" than Milan, "calmer and more organized." The hours in Milan are crazy, it is more business-like in Paris.

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Angela has some prestigious shoots in her past besides Victoria's Secret.

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Angela was in the 2003 and 2004 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issues. She also appeared in the 1999 and 2001 Pirelli Calendars.

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Naturally, only the top, top girls get those slots. Angela gets shot by people like Patrick Demarchelier as a matter of routine.

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Lindvall has branched out into acting, like many other top models of her caliber. She was in "CQ" (2001), "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" (2005) and "Somewhere" (2010), for instance.

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Another big appearance for Angela was the Bill Murray/Charlie Sheen film, "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III" (ah, the stories she must have from that set...).

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Angela television appearances include "Hawaii Five-0" (yes, the new one of course!). Angela hosted a season of "Project Runway: All Stars on Lifetime." She also was in a short, "Fergie: M.I.L.F. $" (2016).

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Angela also has branched out into jewelry design and worked on the Jijau collection for John Hardy. She has her own line with them, "Angela by John Hardy."

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Angela's designs reflect her interests in ancient and exotic cultures. She donates some of the profits to charity, such as Forest Ethics (Angela is very green in more ways than one).

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Angela has survived tragedy. Her older sister Audrey Lindvall - the one who really wanted to be a model? -  also became an IMG model. What a successful family! Unfortunately, Audrey passed away in 2006 in a horrible road accident while visiting her family in Missouri.

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Whilst on vacation in Tortola in the British Virgin Islands, Angela met William Edwards, a South African diver. They married in 2002, when she gave birth to their first son. Angela had a second son in 2005. The two divorced in 2006.

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Angela says that her Instagram is "the center of my universe." You can catch her active Instagram account here.

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Angela is very involved with environmental causes:
Dustin Yellin, my boyfriend at the time, and I came up with this idea to create a magazine that would explore pop culture and talk about real issues that were going on in the world. Through that, I saw how powerful media was in the fashion industry and how quickly trends were created. The magazine eventually evolved to a nonprofit organization that was called the Collage Foundation. We also started the Rockland Farm Alliance which is still a CSA up in Rockland county, 30 minutes outside of New York City.

Angela Lindvall victoriassecret.filminspector.com


Angela Lindvall has been a spokesmodel for Prada.
