At the opening ceremony of the 14th China Chongqing International Auto Industry Fair on June 6, the beautiful and elegant models shine on the stage.

Wen Wen, one of the over 200 models in this auto show, was crowned at China’s sporting model contest in 2011. She, along with five companions, took part in the auto show to promote Lifan, Chongqing’s independent auto brand.

In order to perform well at the stage, they not only had to do repeated rehearsals in advance, but also started work very early every day. At 6:40 a.m., Wen Wen and other models began to do make-up. During the following seven hours, Wen Wen always kept smile on her face and wore ten-centimeter high-heeled shoes.

"Standing is simple, but smiling is difficult. Longtime smiling will make facial muscle stiff, which is the most difficult part", said Wen Wen.

Wen Wen can earn 1,000 yuan a day or more, but many fresh models just make several hundred yuan. Being an auto model is a hard job, but due to media attention, being favorable for fans, it still attracts many young men to pursue their dreams.
