OMG! I'm Asian! WTF?!

Just got home a little while ago from shooting with Phillip Ritchie. As always, it was packed with fun and interesting concepts. What more can you expect from the man?

Phillip wanted to shoot me on the couch. Phillip wanted to make me look Asian. That's what we did.

Originally, it was suppose to be more of a Beauty concept, focusing on my racial background, but then we both ran through some troubles of really rude, and offensive makeup artists (we each got someone different).

As a result, we proved that we didn't need them.
Yes, it's nice to have a professional makeup artist, but it's not always necessary when working with Phillip.

I did my own makeup with some contouring help from Phillip and this is what we created.

I have never done a shoot where I was dressed in Asian clothes and I'm really happy that this was my first.

They are both very sexy, classy and elegant which is what I love.
At the same time, it's also kind of cute. Although Phillip keeps saying he does not do "cute," I
think he had been corrupted by a fluffy white bunny.

I never really show my parents my modeling photos. Sometimes it's just too sexy for them to look at (which they will nag nag nag at me about for days) and sometimes they just nodd and not say anything.
Well, I showed my mother these photos and she LOVED them. I guess she just appreciates the Asian influence on it. Of course, she has to always say something negative like "That's not a Vietnamese dress. That's a Chinese dress. You're not Chinese." But hey, if that's the ONLY bad thing she has to say about it, we're good to go.
