Some of our favorite new catwalk staples are Asian beauties, and upbeat newcomer Emma Pei is our fave du jour. So let's welcome her to the esteemed club of runway rulers that is our Model Manual, shall we? A little bit about Emma: She had a solid first season in New York, walking in thirteen shows including Peter Som, Vera Wang, and closing Diane Von Furstenberg. Expect to see more of her this week in Paris; last season she booked McQueen and Dries Van Noten. She has a couple of striking Chinese Vogue covers under her belt this past year, and we should be seeing Pei in some major Western publications in no time. —Kendall Herbst
