I have loved Anna Sui since I was a kid in the ‘80s. At the time, there were no other Asians in fashion for me to look up to; naturally, I copied her signature bold red lipstick and her thick swipe of black eyeliner (still do!). This woman hasn’t stopped encouraging individuality and celebrity uniqueness since back then.
