Sun Fei Fei"Since then I was also encouraged to join in the Elite Model Look contest by the director of my current agency in China. This was my first modeling contest and I came in first for the China contest..."
We saw Sun Fei Fei a lot, backstage and on the catwalks in Milano during the latest Fashion Week. Relaxed backstage, very professional and aggressive (asian way, of course) in the catwalk. Sun Fei Fei is one of the rising stars in the growing number of Asian top models. Chinese, she represented China et the 2008 Elite Model Look (where she placed 3rd), and after that her model career became a 'top model' career.
Covers of the most famous fashion magazines all around the world, top fashion shows, advertising campaigns and worldwide recognition soon made of this beautiful Chinese model one of the most requested and admired asian top models in the world.
When you read, or hear, that Sun FeiFei is the most famous Chinese top model (which means the number one top model from Asia) what do you think?
I think there are many great models in China, so I will still have to work harder than before.
Where are you currently based?
I am currently based in New York.
How does a typical day in the life of Sun FeiFei goes?
On a typical day, when I don't have to work, I would get up early to have breakfast and to the park with my boyfriend. I do enjoy the sunshine when in the park, and to hear birds singing in the morning. After that, I would go to the supermarket to buy some groceries to cook some delicious food, or to have lunch with my good friends. In the afternoon, I like to read some books or do some workout. Later in the evening, my boyfriend and I would usually have dinner first, and then a good movie at the theater.
