Bae Du Na for Instyle Korea

Am always envious of people who can pull off short cropped bob hair and look good in them. Used to be the "trend hairstyle for cool kids", I believed. Although I do not know who Bae Du Na is, she looks really good with it. Besides having only 2 pair of shoes for the shoot, the styling and clothing is amazing. Soft rock chic touch and feminism in the shoot with a soft pale white background. Oh, how I love this! She looks amazing in every-single-one-of-them.

Love the last pair of shoe! Its the Christian Louboutin Nitonimoi Bandage Ankle boots in suede electric blue! Leighton Meester was seen in the grey suede version and need I say more?, its from the ever-lovely No. 1 shoe-p*rn website of amazing photographer Tommy Ton, Jak & Jil. Do check out the leather version, its more than amazing!

Mr & Mrs Kwon gets sexy in W Korea.

In the month of October, W Korea revealed very sexy images of real-life couple, Kwon Sang Woo and Sang Tae Young. I've never came across this couple before but I'm quite sure they are the ones who released photos of their baby through cyworld.. If you aren't aware, W Magazine is pretty famous for having hot steamy couples featured in their editorials. Like the famous Beckham or Pit/Jolie. I'm not surprised to see them but how often does Korean Magazines get real-life couple in editorials this hot? Are you ready for the sexiness with their new born baby?

Somehow I wished all the images were in monochrome.
This is my favorite editorial/photoshoot of October. Really sexy and the attitude is there. And I love how Kwon Sang Woo holds his baby with one hand, half naked. My favorite photo is the last. Indeed, save the best for last. If I were the couple, I'll request the last image to be enlarged and hang in my bedroom wall. Brands like Marc Jacobs, Yves Saint Laurent, Dior, Miu Miu, Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton were used in the shoot.

G-Dragon StyleID by Eiffel In Seoul : #002

When I first saw the Album Cover of G-Dragon's Solo Album, I fell in love with his "sleeves-jacket"instantly. Very unique piece, with cotton panel. Well, the wait is finally over! After about a month of searching it, I've finally found the real deal! Are you curious? Here it is..

Well, bringing you the photos is simply pointless.
"We need to know the information!" It's designed by Barbara Bui for her Fall 2009 Collection! We've not just seen GD wearing it in his "Heartbreaker" Music Video, including numerous performance at KBS Music Bank, SBS Inkigayo (Popular Song) and also Kim Jung Eun's Chocolate. His outfits are chosen by the stylist who also style for Big Bang, Ji Eun. He is recently seen performing in the red and leopard print version of the similar jacket.

Ji Eun used to style 1TYM before Big Bang and chooses things that are not easily found in Korea. (Definitely not! Took me a long time to ID this item!) And because of his lean bone structure, GD is able to wear women clothes.

Do stay tune for more GD-posts! Been busy this days so I haven't been able to post them!

Jessica Stam for Numéro Korea #15

Jessica Stam is such a doll. Don't you agree with me?
She's one of the first models I fell in love with because of her image. She's really lovely! There's another reason why I love her. She dresses well.

In the month of October, she's featured as the cover model for Numéro Korea.
With her cover spread, "Heroine" photographed by Mariano Vivanco. Jessica has a great profile and also, she really "works" behind the camera. Her poses for this editorial is really great! Personally love the last shot best! She's so lovely yet she could look fierce too. I love Stam, what about you?

Jeremy Scott Spring 2010 - Backstage

I've been a fan of Jeremy Scott's work ever since 2NE1 was dressed in Scott's designs. Fabulous work, although pretty main stream the work is fabulous. Well, now that we all know 2NE1 stylists, Yang Seung Ho and Lee Hyun Jung uses Jeremy Scott.. should we be anticipating the girls wearing 2010 collection in the future?

I didn't quite like the concept/theme for the spring collection, Flintstones. But it slowing grew on me.. not all just some from the collection which have less Flintstones-like designs. 2NE1 have previously wore Adidas by J.Scott sneakers and he showed yet another design for his Spring 2010 collection.. are you ready? I'm more than in love with it. I've always loved those sneakers he does for Adidas and this is no exception.
