I don't mind. Take me to i-D.co anyway

After being discovered at the Elite Model Look contest in 2009, and coming third in the international final, Shanghai-born Ming Xi went from being a name that no-one had heard of to a name that no-one will forget. Because aside from being ravishingly beautiful, with her delicate doll-like features, she has a smile that could make even the coldest hearts melt - something that Riccardo Tisci picked up on when he explicitly requested her for Givenchy’s 2010 haute couture and ready-to-wear shows. Not to mention a year later when he made her the face of Givenchy’s autumn winter 2011 campaign. And now with shows for Louis Vuitton, Lanvin, and Elie Saab, and spreads for Vogue, Love, and i-D under her exceptionally stylish belt, it seems that the whole world loves her too. Aside from modeling, Ming enjoys classical music, trips to Milan, and bubble tea!
