The Liu Wen Vogue China September 2010 editorial features a romantic-looking Liu Wen in 'Dream Away,' a retro-inspired collection featuring designers such as Louis Vuitton, Dries van Noten and Proenza Schouler.

Exquisitely shot by Paolo Roversi, this glamorous spread manages to evoke the oriental grandeur of Old Shanghai, while also betraying the impatience of an age eager to embrace all the modernism that the 1950s heralded. Cinched waists and bold skirts collide rather astonishingly with Liu’s brand of graceful reserve and high maintenance coiffure, hinting at a nascent sexuality yet to be freed.
