Oh. My. Goodness.
Just when we thought Godfrey Gao couldn’t get any more attractive, he goes and does a photoshoot for GQ Taiwan.

Quite possibly one of the biggest stereotypes about Asians is the one concerning our height. It seems as if every and all Asians have dealt with the stereotype of Asians being short. Admittedly, there are quite a few fun-sized Asians (I am among them) and we definitely have no problem with short. The problem is the amount of shock towards tall Asians. I’ve always wondered about why this is such a perplexing thing for some.

But if they did, LV’s new ad will send them straight to the stores.
The luxury label has announced its first-ever Asian male face and what a fine face it is. Meet 25-year old Taiwanese model, Godfrey Gao who appears in the spring campaign toting a Damier Graphite “Elvis” messenger bag. With the scruffy chiseled chin, smoldering stare and sun-kissed complexion, Gao is sure to dispel any notion that toting a man-bag is anything less than manly.
