My good friend and journalist Stevie Wong first brought my attention to China’s first supermodel afew months back, so as I was looking into her work, I was impressed with some of the campaigns she had done and absolutely loved the hair in a lot of them,  I thought I would show you afew of my faves.

First abit of background stuff on Ling..

Ling Tan who’s full name is Tan Mang Ling was South East Asia’s first supermodel.An Malaysian Chinese model who was born in Kuala Lumpur, speaks 4 dialects of Chinese as well and Malay and English.

Her works includes absolutely ALL known top designers, brands and campaigns and has worked with just as many fashion photographers, way too many to list here, believe me its an incredible list, check our her Wikipedia page!

If all that isn’t enough she has also made commercials for Pantene, Armani Fragrances, Ford Edge and appeared in George Michaels music video Fast Love.

Lin recently came out of retirement to walk the runway for Givenchy 2010 and 2011, and was also recently signed with Wilhelmina Models in NYC 2011. Once a supermodel, always a supermodel, right?
