Givenchy's All-Asian Model Line-Up

I'm not one to post more than once a day but, I'm too excited about the recent style news that Givenchy had an "all-Asian model line-up" for their runways in Paris.  Givenchy has its history of famous designers for the label (of course founder Hubert de Givenchy, John Galliano, Christian Dior, Alexander McQueen, Julien McDonald, and currently Riccardo Tisci) and so it is no wonder they continue to make history now with its runway models.

As a person of Asian descent, I think it is amazing!  Some may question this decision and others may even ponder if this is considered racial--but without getting into the politics behind fashion, I think it is a nice departure from the "average runway."  Of course, the models are just as skinny and tall as any other model in the fashion world but, for women like me (i.e. Asian) it's nice to see a new representation of beauty.  Personally, I cannot wait to see more photos.  Who knows what can be next for the runways.

I'm also thrilled that one of my favorite models, Shu Pei Qin is included!  Take a look-see below...
