The New Icons, H&M's pre-summer collection inspired by supermodels launches today!

I have a major girl crush on one of the collection's four muses, Liu Wen from China. 
If you're not familiar with the name Liu Wen but are thinking she looks familiar, you've most likely seen her in one of Zara's, J.Crew's, or most recently, Madewell's lookbooks. Add to that resume the current campaigns of Tiffany & Co. and Oscar de la Renta and you have one of the most sought after models in the industry.

There's something about Liu Wen's beauty that resonates with me (perhaps because she's also asian), and I find myself captivated by every image of her.

She's stunning in full runway make-up but is even more gorgeous with a softer and more natural face. Flawless.

She also wins the prize for first model of Chinese decent to walk in the Victoria Secret Fashion Show, the first asian spokesmodel for Estee Lauder, and China's first supermodel! How can you not love a woman who breaks molds?

And look how cool her off-duty style is! It's obvious why H&M was so inspired. (Liu Wen - Can we hang out?)

Okay, I'm done obsessing. Now, it's your turn. See the H&M Facebook page to get to know Liu Wen, see the collection, and discover the 3 other models who were also chosen to be one of The New Icons. More articles on Liu Wen from T Magazine and Vogue.
