In a brilliant blend of sports fervor and high fashion, Vogue China’s September 2023 issue takes an inspired leap. Led by the audacious Margaret Zhang, the issue pays homage to the eagerly awaited Asian Games in Hangzhou.
Chinese top model He Cong graces the cover, captured masterfully by Leslie Zhang’s lens. But it’s no ordinary shoot: Cong dives into the world of archery, making a powerful statement about athleticism and grace. Styled by Chinese Vogue‘s deputy fashion director Vivienne Sun with creative direction from Matt McDonald, Cong’s look is highlighted by a mesmerizing emerald scarf by Robert Wun, juxtaposed against dazzling Bulgari gems. The ensemble is accentuated by the deft touches of hair stylist Zhao Wenzhi, make-up artist Yooyo Keong Ming and manicurist Nana.
