In her interview with AmericanVogue.com, Bonnie Chen stated, "Leigh, my booker from Next, decided to take me on when nobody else wanted me in New York two years ago. Many people didn’t support my decision to model after college, and I was often told I looked too commercial. Leigh took out all the bad pictures from my book and told me: “Edgy models may catch the eye for one or two seasons, but beauty lasts forever. I like your energy and we should aim high."
So Bonnie has 3 Off Duty Booking Value Indicators in her favor: Persistence, Great Personal Style, and a following of 1.04 million on Weibo. You go Bonnie!
