How was this season for you?
Over fifty shows can be a little bit tiring, but still exciting.

How did it feel to be the first Asian model on the cover of Vogue Italia?
Exciting! Steven Meisel’s breathtaking photos make me feel like I’m in a dream. I am honored to be selected. I have to say this story gave me self-confidence. It is a very good memory I will never ever forget.

What was your initial success like – you skyrocketed to the top when you first came on the scene, but what was the experience like for you?
Time-travel. lol. Young Chinese people have a saying, “Chuan Yue Le”. It means something like “a huge time-travel”. It was so fast and so different for me. Frankly, at first I couldn’t adapt to the speed. You have to check your e-mail several times every day for work options and they are all in English! But I had to grow up stronger, quicker, not only to be a professional model but also a businesswoman. I told myself: It’s a new school and you will meet good teachers. Don’t worry. Just Enjoy.

What are some things you’d like to do that you haven’t just yet – career wise or not.
I am very interested in opening a coffee shop that also serves cakes and fancy foods.

How do you find balance these days?
I know it’s just my job and there is more to life than work. I just remember to always be myself.

Tell us one thing about yourself people might find surprising.
I eat a lot!

  30. TylerS says:

    Beautiful! Would anyone happen to know this style of hat? Please tell me through shyawayphantom.tumblr.com/ask I would really appreciate it!

  31. Britt says:

    Hi Alicia, I styled the Fei Fei story – The denim shirt is vintage men’s from What Goes Around Comes around in NYC, as well as the vintage white v-neck t-shirt!

  32. Britt says:

    Hey Tyler! IF you ever check back on the site – the hat is from JJ Hat Center in NYC….

  33. Danny says:

    Hey Andreas, what does your comment means? If you call Fei Fei Sun boring than you are brainless. How can you think that a successful asian model like Fei Fei is boring? She has everything to be a professional model, she has the face, the body, the potential, the walk, etc. If you think she is boring than maybe you don’t know what a good professional model is!

  34. Miguel says:

    She is gorgeous!

  35. Ice Pandora says:

    One of my favorite Asian models! Xx
