Slideshow: Lv Yan, A Symbol of China

Lv Yan (吕燕), born in Jiangxi, is a daughter of a coal miner. In 1999, after training to become a model in her hometown, she went to Beijing and was discovered by a famous stylist. At that moment, she started her brilliant modeling career.

According to traditional Chinese concepts, L√º, now China’s most famous supermodel, is not pretty at all. Some say the narrow-eyed, flat-nosed and thick-lipped girl is even considered ugly. Nevertheless, that does not stop her from shining on the global catwalks. Below is a group of her taken on the Great Wall.
