The 411: Xiao Wen Ju
Model Xiao Wen Ju has been a designer favorite since she first hit the fashion scene from her native China two years ago, and her runway rise remained steady for Fall. Walking shows like 3.1 Phillip Lim, Oscar de la Renta, Thakoon, Peter Pilotto, Fendi, Roberto Cavalli, Kenzo, Nina Ricci, and Chanel, the petite powerhouse scored a portfolio in the new issue of Style.com/Print—and a whole new crop of fans—in the process. Here, Xiao Wen reveals her low-maintenance skincare regimen—”I’ve never done a facial!” she admits—and her top five beauty bets for fashion week and beyond.
