New Silk Road and Career

Liu started her modeling career in 2005,[3] when she entered the New Silk Road World Model Contest, a contest previously won by international covergirl Du Juan[2], of hoping to win a computer, which was the main price. Though she didn't win, she began working after the contest. She became a national success when she landed the cover of Chinese FHM in the beginning her career.[3] She then started working for top Chinese fashion magazines like Vogue and Harper's Bazaar.[3]

In September 2007, Liu caught the eye of the international fashion industry when she shot a Cosmo editorial styled as designer like Karl Lagerfeld and Viktor and Rolf[1][3], and later appeared on the cover. She then was ushered to Paris in 2008, and signed with Marilyn Agency.[3]

In February of the same year, she appeared in four editorials for Chinese Vogue.[3] She debuted on the international runways in the same month, closing the fall Trussardi show in Milan, and also walked for Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Hermès.[2]

For the Spring 2009 season, she appeared in seven major campaigns[4], including DKNY Jeans, The GAP, and cKone.[4]

In 2009, Liu Wen became the first woman of East Asia descendant to ever walk the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.[5]

After modeling, Wen would like to get back to her educations to become a teacher which was originally her plan to become.
