She’s the first Chinese model to walk the runway for Victoria’s Secret; first Asian model to be a face for Estée Lauder; breaks boundaries wherever she plants a Louboutin, basically. Also: stunningly versatile; can do girl- next-door hot, weird-Björkish hot, mysterious-Wong-Kar-Wai-heroine hot, just-me-and-my-Chucks-and-my-cell-phone street-candid hot, etc. All of which explains why we included her on our 2012 Lust List. Mostly, though, it’s because we can’t stop staring at her. Pretty simple criteria, really.
