Who is China Machado?

As featured in NYMag's recent fall fashion issue, China Machado (born Noelie Dasouza Machado) was a model in the 50's and 60's discovered by famed photographer Richard Avedon and among the first non-Caucasians to be featured in high profile fashion magazines at the time. I found the article interesting because of her background (her parents are from Portugal and Hong Kong) and because she's a polyglot:

"Growing up in Shanghai’s wealthy French Concession, Machado spoke French in the streets, Portuguese at home, and Chinese to the servants." Cool.

Check out the profile HERE.
