L'Officiel - China

I’ve had such an overwhelming amount of support over the last few years from my Chinese friends on Tencent Weibo and Sina Weibo, who now number over 4 million strong! I’m so happy to have this Jun Liu shot editorial available in China right now. Stay tuned for the cover, interview and behind-the-scenes video.

CHINA - The next social media frontier.

After over 2 years on Twitter I recently hit a huge milestone - 200,000 followers. That might be a drop in the bucket if you’re Lady Gaga or Kim Kardashian, but I never thought that many people would be interested in what I have to say. Twitter has been an amazing way for me to reach out to others, and as a service it’s uniting people from all around the world. Except, of course, in a few countries where it’s banned. One of those countries in particular happens to have 1.3 billion citizens: China.

As an experiment back in October, I signed up for the Chinese equivalent of Twitter, a service called Tencent Weibo, and I was shocked at the results. In just over 2 months of using the service, I now have over 100,000 new friends in China. At this rate I imagine that this number will surpass my twitter followers within a few weeks. I really had no idea that there was such a huge crowd of people in China interested in the life of a high fashion model, but I’m very happy to have found them half the world away!
