I am completely enamored by this rockabilly spread in Vogue China’s March issue. As a fan of Chinese culture and fashion I was not surprised at how easy it was for them to capture the essence of 1950’s fashion in this issue. Especially since rockabilly culture is a big phenomenon in China and Japan. Even the New York rockabilly scene is mostly Chinese and Japanese. I am pleased Vogue has shed light on a culture that is mainly on the west coast but is coming back full circle. From the looks of it, this spread had many influences. Wang Xiao is a bit of a wild card, reminiscent of bad girl Rizzo from grease, while Lily Zhi channels her inner Bettie Page in blunt cut short bangs and her soft yet radiant demure. Don’t get me started on Zhao Lei who is obviously channeling his inner Travolta in his Greaser ensemble, he looks smokin hot! I am drooling over the wardrobe and couldn’t be more satisfied with the styling work of Morgan Pilcher. See for yourself below!

  1. I’m pretty sure that first black skirt with the blue ribbon trim is from the much-loathed Viktor & Rolf collection. I personally love it, though!

  2. Thanks for sharing about this culture of fashion,, because I wasn’t aware of it.
