Givenchy’s Army of Asian Models Invade Paris Haute Couture

Asians are taking over the fashion world.

I am totally serious. If Vogue editrix Anna Wintour features the industry’s top Asian models in a piece titled “Asia Major” that says Asian models are “redefining traditional concepts of beauty” then it must be true — because everything Anna says is the truth etched in stone, RIGHT?

To add to this Asian monopoly on fashion, Paris Haute Couture Shows are in full swing and Givenchy’s Ricardo Tisci decided to use an all Asian roster of models to present his collection of Japanese-inspired robot samurai gowns (apparently, one dress took 4,000 hours to create).

With an onslaught of Asians taking over the design side of the industry (Jason Wu, Philip Lim, Prabal Gurung, Alexander Wang, et al) and Asian models marching to the forefront, is Asian the new black? (Pardon the overused cliche.)

More importantly, if you look at the picture above, you can see boobs. (*giggle*)
