Chinese model Liu Wen just became the first Asian face of cosmetics giant Estée Lauder. French model Constance Jablonski also signed with the brand. A cosmetics contract is the Holy Grail of modeling — the single highly lucrative booking that all models strive for after years of toiling away on low-paying runway and editorial jobs. As two of fashion’s most desirable faces of the moment, they couldn’t have been hired by Estée Lauder at a better time.
Liu Wen debuted on the fall 2008 runways and quickly became a runway must-have, walking for Chanel, Hermès, and Kenzo. The 22-year-old was the first Asian model to walk for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show last year.
Meanwhile, Constance Jablonski is no stranger to the pages of Vogue. Hailing from Lille, France, the 20-year-old is an editorial darling at French, Italian, Japanese, and British Vogue. Jablonski is also the current face of ck by Calvin Klein, alongside, coincidentally, Wen. They also shared the March 2010 cover of Chinese Vogue. Maybe Estée Lauder will pair these two gorgeous faces together too.
