No one quite knows how Kina Shen arrived at the looks she is sporting today, neither it is easy to determine whether they are creepier than they are fascinating, but the girl who became widely known as the Chinese Porcelain Doll has sure managed to capture many people’s attention.
While many images have been obviously (some might say poorly) Photoshopped, the 25-year-old appears much more natural in others. This asynchronicity doesn’t seem to bother her numerous fans, with her Instagram profile being followed by more than half-a-million users, many of which come outside China.

Kina doesn’t hide her love for the darkness, which is obvious in her fashion choices
“All this time I thought I was dark, but maybe I was wrong. I cannot stay away from darkness, because it needs me. Because I am the light it craves, and needs. So maybe I am not cursed, but blessed with a dark kind of light,” she says in one caption.
“You will be ‘too much’ for some people. Too loud, too soft. Too this, too that. But you’ll always be perfect for the people who need you,” another quote reads.
