The Vogue China 'Army Chic' editorial is aptly named. While the fashion showcased throughout is clearly inspired by military garments, there is a soft feminine quality to each outfit that accounts for their 'chicness.' Shot in the desert, model Ming Xi smolders for the camera in the dark, fall wardrobe.

Lensed by photographer Benny Horne for the September 2012 issue of the magazine, the Vogue China 'Army Chic' editorial is as full of edgy structure as it is of monotonous sands. From elegant military jackets to sleek cargo pants, the looks that stylist Morgan Pilcher put together are flawless. The Chinese beauty is outfitted in the likes of Stella McCartney, Jason Wu, Paul & Joe and Dries van Noten. The looks were perfected by hair stylist Gavin Harwin and makeup artist Tyron Machhausen.
