The One by Nicky Lee

I love reading manga (japanese comics)/manhua (chinese)/manhwa (korean)...  You name it.  However, there is one manhua that I have been following for a long time that I have been absolutely loving, especially in recent chapters.  Coincidentally, it revolves around modeling and the fashion world.  Ladies and gentleman, I give you Nicky Lee's The One!

From ShoujoMagic:
Lele was born into the fashion industry. Both her parents were models, and they both die in a tragic airplane crash leaving a 5-year-old Lele orphaned. Therefore, it is no surprise that Lele hates the industry, thinking it’s superficial and unnecessary!

Raised by her maternal grandmother, Lele reaches seventeen years of age before she is sucked in when her mother's sister – a fashion model agent and former model, convinces the reluctant Lele to model. Lele had been adverse to the whole idea, until she sees a photo shoot of popular American model Angus Lanson, and she begins to see modeling as an art form.

When Aunt Fei's magazine editor invites Angus Lanson to a meeting of all the top fashion ambassadors, a curious Lele is invited to meet him. She does not know that Angus' twin elder brother, Eros Lanson, is secretly accompanying his brother. This obviously leads to confusion and is the start of a charming story of Lele's goals: fashion in NYC, becoming a top model, and… love?
You can read the manhua here.  For the most recent chinese raws (and if you simply can't get enough of The One), I suggest going to the last page of this forum thread here.  People usually post links to where you can read the raws online.  Please enjoy this manhua, and just for a preview, here are the first 5 pages to The One Chapter 85.
