Asian Model

A Resurgent East Asia, Navigating a Changing World argues that the tremendous progress seen in the region is not guaranteed in the future. The development model that spurred the so-called East Asian Miracle will have to adapt to changing technologies, slowing trade growth, and changing country circumstances, if progress is to be sustained.

Asian Americans are the fastest growing U.S. immigrant group, projected to become the largest immigrant group by 2065, but the quantity of research on Asian Americans' health has not mirrored changing demographics. Asian Americans have been understudied for more than 25 years, with only 0.17% of National Institutes of Health (NIH) expenditures allocated to projects including Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander populations (Ðoàn et al., 2019). This disproportionality may result in part from the model minority stereotype (MMS) being extended to health, perpetuating the ideas that Asian Americans are well-positioned with regard to health status and that associated research is not essential. Accordingly, the aims for this article are threefold: (a) bring attention to the inadequate representation of the Asian American population in health-related science, (b) question the MMS in health, and (c) outline potential pathways through which the MMS limits what is knowable on Asian American health issues and needs. We discuss the limited meaningfulness of nonrepresentative aggregated statistics purporting the model minority image and provide counterexamples. We also present a stereotype-constraints model with the MMS contributing to a bottleneck for Asian American health-related knowledge, accompanied by present-day circumstances (e.g., sparse data, few psychologists/behavioral medicine scientists focused on Asian American health). We conclude with initial recommendations for addressing MMS-associated constraints in psychology and more broadly. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2021 APA, all rights reserved).

Asian models have made a mark in the global fashion industry. These models are breaking barriers, from posing in editorials featuring couture to landing ads for major fashion brands and gracing magazine covers.

They continue to be an essential part of the international modeling scene as their influence on culture continues to grow each year. It is safe to say that these top Asian fashion models will remain at the forefront for years to come. For more industry icons, see our list of famous short models.

While diversity in modelling is so much better than it once was, black and Asian male models are still underrepresented on the global fashion scene. The latter is particularly puzzling when you consider the luxury consumer powerhouse that China has become, and also that the guys on this list are some of the most striking and popular male models on the circuit.

South Korean superstar Taemin Park has been busy at Milan Fashion Week recently where he was one of the standout models at Emporio Armani, as well as walking in his first ever show for Italian luxury brand Gucci. He has also starred in billboard campaigns for the likes of COS, and modelled for the Berluti SS23 lookbook.

The slender rangy Japanese model had a stellar SS23 season with a runway roster difficult to top. Nakano has walked at Dior, Balmain, Jil Sander, MM6 Maison Margiela, Fendi, Kenzo, Marine Serre and Hermès among others, cementing his place as one of the most sought-after male models of the moment.

A trailblazer for Asian models, Ueda was the first model in Asia to appear on the cover of Vogue Hommes Japan, photographed by Steven Klein with the artistic supervision of Nicola Formichetti, and was also in two campaigns for Dolce & Gabbana.

South Korean model Dae Na started his career in 2012 when he was found by photographer Hudson Taylor. While he has walked for a long list of the biggest fashion names, and appeared in editorials for the whole gamut of global fashion magazines, Dae Na is perhaps best known for his work with Ralph Lauren.

With his androgynous aesthetic and long hair, Japanese model Akito Mizutani has been busy recently, walking in shows for the likes of Kenzo, Zegna, Dsquared, Jil Sander and Wales Bonner, as well as some high-profile campaigns for AMI Paris, Kenzo and Loewe.

The highly sought-after Chinese model Yang Hao is on a steep trajectory to modelling stardom, having recently walked for the likes of Lemaire, Dior Men, Fendi and Prada, as well as advertising campaigns for the likes of Dunhill.

One of the reasons for the invisibility of anti-Asian racism is inextricably connected to the model minority myth. The model minority myth focuses on prevailing stereotypes of Asians as hard-working, independent, intelligent and economically prosperous.

The Asian model minority myth was popularized by sociologist William Pettersen through a 1966 New York Times article. For the past several decades, the Asian model minority myth has been prevalent in the general public as a counter-argument for anti-Asian racism.

This Makeup Chart is created for makeup artists at all levels. It consists of Asian models with diamond-shaped faces. This workbook is the perfect way to easily refine your make-up skills while practicing on realistic faces based on real-life models.

Purpose: The purpose of the chapter is to study the peculiarities of making of managerial decisions in modern business systems in countries of Asia and to compile an Asian model of this process, as well as to determine the possibilities and perspectives of making of optimal decisions according to this model.

Methodology: The chapter is devoted to studying the microeconomic aspect of economic development of countries of Asia; it is based on the methods of logical and systemic analysis, modeling of socioeconomic processes and systems, and formalization.

Originality/value: It is substantiated that Asian model is most adapted and fitting for making of managerial decisions in the conditions of dynamic business environment, when the most important criterion of optimality is the speed of decision making. 041b061a72
