I didn’t expect this, but my Marie Claire essay is now available online. I hope you peeps who bought the magazine won’t be demanding a refund. You did get an extra photo in the print version. Maybe that counts for something.
I will give you two more photos here. When we did the shoot for the story, I started out with my favorite faux-ny tail hairstyle. But after the test Polaroids, I was deemed to look “too Asian,” especially in the green dress. I want to make it clear that this was only a problem because I’m not Asian. It is TOTALLY cool for Asian people to look Asian in Marie Claire.
Here are the Polaroids (via photographer Anna Wolf):
But they wanted me to be very serious to match the story.
