We spent our weekend, among other activities, curled up on a satiny pillowcase with Vogue China’s 100th issue. And let us tell you, editor-in-chief Angelica Cheung really knows how to turn out a landmark edition. For the centennial issue, she used a single photographer to shoot over 150 pages of beauty and trend stories (featuring all Chinese models, to boot). The lensman in question is Mario Testino, who left virtually no stone in Chinese style and culture unturned. The issue reads more like an art tome á la Inez and Vinoodh’s Pretty Much Everything, or a photographer's personal history of China, than it does a major fashion magazine. Can every monthly look like this, please?
