Jeremy could not be there in person to receive his award (so was Yao Ming, Sun Yang and a couple other recipients) in Beijing on Friday night.

But while he was visiting China sometimes mid August, he had alloted time for GQ China to take a couple of still shots and video, as well as receiving interview too, and he will appear with some of the other recipients on the cover of GQ China September issue, which will soon be available from the newsstands.


Here are some of the COOL photos I managed to scoop from that GQ China September issue.

No, I mean a new modern style that reflects modern China, and not the West. It doesn't matter where the clothes are made--just like it doesn't matter where the iPhone is made. The real message--the content--of fashion, is in the design.

Clothes are something that everybody uses every day. They reflect the thinking and mindset of the person wearing them, even if that person doesn't realize it. When Asians wear Western-style suits, it says: "the West is still the best, if I want respect and status, I need to look Western."

Of course one has to be realistic as well. Real change takes time.
