Daily Duo: Yan



From Nanjing, Chinese beauty Yan was discovered after a friend recommended that she give modelling a whirl. She did, and Yan has clocked up some awe inspiring experience, featuring in most important Chinese fashion mags, on the cover of i-D, and has walked for Max Mara in Shanghai. Yan is all woman – this girl has gravitas. Her beauty is sophisticated and sleek, not cutesy or child-like. With an iconic smattering of freckles and an amazing ability to transform, Yan is ready to make her mark.

    oh my gosh she is amazingly beautiful and versitile I hope to see lots of her in magazins and on the runways


    love the freckles and the cheekbones!

  • she has an interesting look perhaps not edgy enough for my liking but she looks cute, perhaps too commercial somehow for me.

  • You are doing great work

    But this is a new face looks more like a professional :) , and not for the beginner.

  • Kate

    OMG! AMAZING face! I hope her career will develop fast!

  • I love her ability to transform; she is quite the cameleon. Amazingly beautiful and talented.

    Whoa! get this girl to Victoria Secret…sexy!!

  • kitkat

    I’ve seen her in person and I’m not impressed with the way she looks in person+polaroids. She’s the type who needs a lot of post.

    There is some work she can do and it has been so competitive with the chinese models these days.

  • gc

  • Lillie

    WOW, is she ever a beautiful girl. It’s not too often that you see an asian model with freckles but I’m loving them on Yan! Can’t get over how beautiful she is. She’s gonna make it big!

  • Lillie

    And I agree with RRRaul415. PAY ATTENTION, VICTORIA’S SECRET!!!!

  • HH

    Amazing transformation from shot to shot! Great girl. Wish her the best!

  • BOLO

    That first photo is immaculate! I love the tones, it’s like a rainbow but crisp.
    Beautiful expression in the eyes. If I saw that in a magazine, I would take
    notice and care. And modeling is about selling. That would be a great cosmetic make up ad, or even bolder, an ad for time travel.
