White guys tend to go for girls that look "very Chinese" as in the Lucy Liu look:

In China this look is... at best "lu ren" tier ("lu ren" means

random girl on the street). There's a lot of Chinese guys who find this look downright ugly (myself included). The joke is that girls like this don't have to put on makeup to appear in Peking Opera:

Whereas for most Chinese men, the golden standard of beauty is more like this:

  • Eyes, large and unangled, neutral elipses
  • Face, almond shaped (Chinese called it "watermelon seed shaped")
  • Nose, thin and prominant
Needless to say, a lot of white dudes wouldn't mind taking a girl that looks like this out either but in terms of relative preference, the Lucy Liu type tends to be more popular from my understanding.
