Marie Claire chats to model and global Estée Lauder spokesmodel Liu Wen about her off-duty routine.
What would you describe as your:
Q: Everyday essentials?
A: A big bag that can hold a lot of items! I feel like I have more and more to carry every season. A travel size container of Nutritious Vita-Mineral Moisture Creme because I want to keep my skin moist, especially when I travel.
Q: Favorite new finds?
A: ABC KITCHEN in NY
Q: Can’t live without’s?
A: A little blush on my cheeks! I love Pure Color Blush in Sensuous Rose
Q: Which international designer best describes your personality?
A: This is definitely a difficult question, because what I enjoy wearing depends a lot on my mood, and my style has also changed as I’ve gotten older. I do enjoy wearing all kinds of fashion that comes on the runway every season, but when I’m doing something outside of modeling, I like looks with personality…a “cool factor” – and also comfortable! Balenciaga always fits this for me.
Q: What is the most reliable piece in your wardrobe? Your go-to piece?
A: A leather jacket. It goes well with almost everything and fits every kind of weather that’s not too hot.
Q: Who is your style icon?
A: Kate Moss! She is so effortlessly chic.
Q: How do you stay comfortable and chic between shows – what’s the key?
A: The most important part is to keep a good attitude and enjoy what I’m doing, no matter what it is. I also use Advanced Night Repair at night during Fashion Week so I can stay fresh when I wake up!
