I’ve been browsing through IMG model’s website and I’ve bump upon this one jewel. With her childlike features and perky personality, who wouldn’t fall in love with Xiao Wen Ju? (Yes, I am one. hihi.)

Ju Xiaowen or Xiao Wen Ju was born in China, the home of fashion models Liu Wen, Du Juan, Lu Yan and so on. She began her modeling career in China as she sign her contract with IMG models in 2010

Another young, brooding model, with a twist. Xiao Wen’s features aren’t what everyone defines as perfect. She has small eyes, translucent complexion, and looks like a geisha which may scare anyone. To top it all off, she has the most oriental feature which may seem awkward in the runway full of Barbie-ish girls.

But just this year, she was picked to become a face of Marc Jacobs campaign, and she was the first Chinese to do so at the age of 19 (She was 20 years old now, by the way.)

Her Runway walk is impressive. Man, she looked like a doll. She have walked the runways of Marc Jacobs, Hermes, Nina Ricci, Fendi, Chanel and more. She also became the cover of Vogue China and Numero as well as featured in Kenzo and American Vogue.

She was often compared to Liu Wen which is kinda funny for me because they have different strengths and measures. Liu Wen has a dominant features, from her cheek bones to her jaws, its her assets. While Xiao Wen on the other hand has doll-like and soft features which makes her unforgettable as well.
