Angelica Cheung is arguably the most powerful Vogue editor in the world. Anna Wintour may be more famous, but Cheung's Vogue - the Chinese edition - is so commercially successful it now prints 16 issues a year instead of the usual 12 in order to accommodate all its advertisers.
The 47-year-old Anglophile is the daughter of a Chinese diplomat, married to an Englishman and happily spends her summer holidays in chilly Britain. She has edited the Chinese edition since its launch and in the process has turned herself into a cultural bridgehead between east and west, partly thanks to her flawless English - she studied at the Universities of Peking and Southern Australia. So with Chinese Vogue currently celebrating its 100th issue (it's six years old since you ask) by commissioning Mario Testino to shoot every fashion story in the edition, it seemed a good moment to take stock of the East-West fashion relationship.
