To commemorate its eighth anniversary, Vogue China put out a collection of eight September 2013 covers that feature both Chinese models and women from the Western world.
"Not only are each of these girls achieving great success in their careers," wrote Angelica Cheung in her letter from the editor in this issue, "but they all embody in some way the Vogue spirit that we wish to promote."
Tenets of that spirit include passion, sincerity, focus, self-confidence, and courage, among others. The covers, shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, espouse all of those sentiments, and the models featured look stunning on all of them. Herein, take a look at Liu Wen, Daria Strokous, Doutzen Kroes, Fei Fei Sun, Kati Nescher, Sasha Pivovarova, Sui He, and Xiao Wen Ju on all eight covers.
