The Chinese Beauty Ideal?

fashionlauncher ( and Miss Building Blocks
( have asked to see what the
Chinese beauty ideal is, I guess these are what I've been brain-washed
into thinking as flawless faces, a couple of them may have had some
excess photoshopping though, but you get the idea. The first one is of
a Chinese movie star, Fan Binbin, whom many have accused of having had
plastic surgery. I've seen some of the so-called "before" pics, she
was already stunning before, so if she had anything done, it probably
was to make her chin even pointier and her nose higher.

Model Style: 杜鹃 (Du Juan)

杜鹃 (Du Juan) is one of the few Chinese models who are actually popular
with well-known designers in the west, here are photos from the many
runway shows she has done. She has been on the cover of French Vogue
and was seen in J.Crew and Gap's ad campaigns too.

Her face is actually not considered very beautiful by Chinese
standards, but she can make it abroad because her look is so "Asian."
The beauty standards in China are totally skewed and impossible to
attain in my opinion, the ideal now is a small face with pointy chin,
huge double-lidded eyes, high cheekbones and pale skintone. No wonder
so many are resorting to plastic surgery. Hope she can stay successful
and change people's perception of what is considered attractive!
