Park Bom wears Mary Katrantzou and Christian Louboutin to SBS Gayo Daejun

2NE1 attended the annual SBS Gayo Daejun which was held on December 29, 2010 at Ilsan KINTEX. Singers and groups like 2AM, Beast, BoA, Kara, SNSD and many more were in the lined-up.

Park Bom (박봄) was my best dressed that night, wearing a dress from Mary Katrantzou Fall/Winter 2010 collection. The dress features jewel prints inspired by Madame de Pompadour's portraits and Fragonard paintings. Christian Louboutin Supra Fifre 120 Thigh High Boots to complete her look.

The dress is currently retailing for USD$1207.34 on and is on sale for USD$569.00 on Barneys (what a steal!).

Park Bom
(박봄) also wore Mary Katrantzou to 2009 SBS Gayo Daejun.

CL, Seo In Young and Moon Chae Won wears Manoush

I'm sure most of you remembered the Manoush top which CL (이채린) wore with Theory Leather Pants in her Allure photoshoot back in September. Seems like she isn't the only one wearing that particular top.

Singer, Seo In Young (서인영) also wore it to an episode of HaHa Mong, variety show. Unfortunately, we are unable to see her full outfit.

In the first episode of SBS drama, "It's Okay, Daddy's Girl", Moon Chae Won (문채원) was also seen in the same embroidery top with a tulle skirt.

All of them pulled of their looks well but I like it better on Moon Chae Won (문채원) because of her curly hairstyle and the skirt. It gives off a bohemian look.

What's on Seo In Young's shoe rack?

For anyone who loves Seo In Young (서인영) or take interest in her would know that she is a huge fan of shoes. To be specific, towering high heels. I'm not sure if you are a fan of them too but I am, and wearing them makes me more confident.

On August 5, Seo In Young (서인영) first wore Camilla Skovgaard Wedge Ankle Boots to Hite/Dry Finish launching event. I'm pretty sure it's one of her favorite shoe since she wore it to several events and shows as well as Heroes (variety show).

On September 7, she attended Vogue's Fashion Night Out in another lust-worthy pair of shoe. Giuseppe Zanotti Leopard Platform Boots. The towering boots seems difficult to walk in and painful but Seo In Young (서인영) was full of smiles when photographed.

On October 8, Seo In Young (서인영) attended the store opening of Mixxo in Azzedine Alaïa Pony Hair Boots which we saw on celebrities like Minzy and Joe Chen.

On November 4, she wore Charlotte Olympia Bowie Wedges in Gold & Silver to Columbo's "Incontro Tra Lusso E Arte" Exhibition. I'm excited to see Charlotte Olympia on a Korean celebrity, I hope more celebrities jump on the bandwagon!

A new pair of shoe every month? Who wouldn't want?!
My favorite would be Giuseppe Zanotti and Charlotte Olympia, I can't decide which is better. As of now, Charlotte Olympia is my favorite shoe designer and if I had the money.. I would buy every single design they stock (literally!).

CL wears Christopher Kane, Balmain and more

2NE1 was recently in Thailand to promote for Fiore, Yamaha Scooter Bikes. They put up a performance on December 17, 2010 at Fiore's Night Party.

CL (이채린) was dressed in Christopher Kane Lace "Biker Jacket" with Floral Embroidery T-Shirt (USD$301.94, Browns Fashion). Her outfit was completed with Balmain denim, Christian Louboutin Louis Hi-Top Sneakers as well as Lanvin for H&M sunglasses.

CL with her sunglasses again... other than that, I thought the outfit was styled nicely. Definitely not a disappointment unlike Sandara Park. CL also wore the same outfit in the music video.

Karen Mok wears Lie Sang Bong to various events

Singer Karen Mok (莫文蔚) attended the second annual Charity Christmas Lighting Ceremony at Shanghai's Peninsula Hotel as the Goodwill Ambassador.

The singer was dressed in Korean designer, Lie Sang Bong Fall/Winter 2010. The embellished dress with satin panels was styled with black tights and black pumps with minimal accessories.

3 days later... Karen Mok (莫文蔚) attended the premiere conference of movie, "All The Way With You (一路有你)" on December 28, 2010.

She was also dressed in Lie Sang Bong Fall/Winter 2010. Her magenta dress was styled with black tights and Brian Atwood Black Maniac Pumps.

She looks lovely in both dresses. I can't decided which one I like better, which one do you prefer?

2NE1's Minzy & Big Bang's G Dragon wears Givenchy

2NE1 were recently in Thailand for the promotion of Fiore Scooter Bikes. They attended the Fiore press conference held on December 17, 2010 prior to the night party.

Gong Minzy (공민지) wore Givenchy Clown Printed Jersey T-Shirt to the press conference. Wearing a black hoodie with black jeans and Lanvin Leopard Print Hi-Top Sneakers (not photographed above).

G Dragon also wore the same T-Shirt to the performance of 'High High' at Music Core on December 25, 2010. Unlike Minzy, his styling was more flamboyant.

The Clown Printed Jersey T-Shirt (enlarged) retails on Luisa via Roma for USD$309.40.

Lyn wears Lanvin for H&M to SBS Inkigayo 600th Episode

Korean singer, Lyn performed 'Snowstorm of Love (사랑의 눈보라)' on SBS Inkigayo's 600th episode which aired on December 12, 2010.

The singer wore Lanvin for H&M Tulle Dress which we have seen on several celebrities. Her outfit was styled with thigh high socks and boots which I'm not very sure if it's a good choice but she sure looked adorable. What do you think?

T.O.P/Choi Seung Hyun wears Instantology

I must admit I'm not big on menswear but since there are numerous people asking me to cover GD & T.O.P's fashion for their latest album release, here it is. Thank you everyone who sent in tips! (If you have one, reach me via formspring or my email!)

T.O.P or Choi Seung Hyun (최승현), to me is Big Bang's best dressed. Other than having good looks, he dresses well too. In 'GD & T.O.P', both of them were seen wearing custom-made suits and outfits from Instantology, a Korean designer brand.

Here are the few looks T.O.P was sporting in the promotional photos from the album as well as in magazine scans and events, check it out :

In the promotional photos, T.O.P wore a custom-made suit from Instantology. The Black Velvet Tux With D.Grey Satin Lapel was styled with Christian Louboutin Rollerball Loafers. The outfit was spiced up with a tinge of hot pink bullet-belt. (Also seen in K-Star Lovers, Japanese magazine.)

Although his purple top may be to tight for him (peek-a-boo), the Purple and Emerald Two Button Gingham Check Suit was well fitted on him. This is a look that not everyone can pull off. Then again, not everyone is as daring as him to wear such bold colors.

In the promotional photos, T.O.P wore a Vinyl Cape with White Taped with a grey baseball jacket. Seems like transparent garments are really popular ever since Prada Spring/Summer 2010. Similar capes are also found in Yves Saint Laurent Fall/Winter 2010 womenswear collection.

The same blazer was worn at 2010 Mnet Asian Music Awards as well as 2010 Style Icon Awards (not pictured above). I absolutely love the Beige Wool Tux Jacket with Black Square Lapel he wore, if you're thinking on getting the womens' wear.. try Zara or 3.1 Phillip Lim.

Girls' Generation's Hyoyeon and Jessica attends 25th Golden Disk Awards

Girls' Generation attended the 25th Golden Disk Awards held on December 9, 2010. With Tiffany absent, only eight girls were present at the award show to receive 'Disk Bonsang Daesang', 'Disk Bonsang' as well as 'Popularity' awards.

Hyoyeon (효연) wore a mini dress with cut outs from Korean label, Bridge11. The same dress was worn by Park Jung Ah (박정아), former Jewelry member in CeCi Korea's October 2010 issue. Styling the outfit with Mzuu accessories and Jinny Kim ankle boots.

Jessica was dressed in Andy & Debb Fall/Winter 2010 collection which was presented in New York. Styling it with Mzuu necklace and Jinny Kim shoes (not photographed above).

Check out what the other girls wore to the show : (A) + (B)

Lee Na Young wears Gucci in 'Fugitive: Plan B'

In episode 17 and 18 of KBS's Fugitive: Plab B, actress Lee Na Young (이나영) who acts as Jini wore a leopard print dress from Gucci Pre-Fall 2010 collection. In the pictures above, she styled her outfit with a navy sweater with black tights.

If you watched the drama; in episode 17, she wore a trench coat over the dress with ankle boots. Weirdly, I love how she styled it with the sweater (above). It suits her, she looked lovely.

Leighton Meester also wore the dress in episode 3 (Season 4) of Gossip Girl. Mulberry Alexa Bag as well as Courtney Crawford pumps to complete her look.

Girls' Generation's Sunny also wore the dress to Gucci Fall/Winter 2010 fashion show back in September. Her outfit was styled with tan pumps, finishing her look with pink lips.

For those who have been waiting for GD & TOP's update, it's coming up!

Hyun Bin wears Dolce & Gabbana in 'Secret Garden'

In episode 5 of SBS's very popular drama, Hyun Bin (현빈) who acts as Kim Joo Won in 'Secret Garden' wore a suit from Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2010 collection.

Aside from the sequin/"sparkling" tracksuits, he is usually dressed in a suit. I personally love the tweed blazer he wore, I thought he looked especially suave in it.

If you have yet to catch the drama, please do! It's currently on top on my list. Subtitles are available on

2NE1 Sandara Park & Park Bom wears Versace

It's Christmas Eve and I thought this would be a great post for all 2NE1 lovers!
2NE1 came back with 'To Anyone' in September 2010 wearing tons of designer outfits from Alexander Wang, Chrome Hearts to Jeremy Scott and many more.

I'm sure many of you were curious about the bodysuit Sandara Park (박산다라) wore in Taeyang (태양)'s 'I Need A Girl' music video. It is also the same bodysuit Park Bom (박봄) wore in 'Can't Nobody' music video.

I guess the header already gave away the designer of the bodysuit. Right.. it's from Versace Resort 2010. The bodysuit features bright multi-colored baroque prints.

Various designs featuring the design from bikini, bodysuit to dress retails on Browns Fashion from USD$390.83 - $687.85).

I was actually surprised to know the designs are from Versace, they don't look Versace to me at all but I love the prints and the colors are great. Their stylist (whoever it is) did a great job on this. However, styling Sandara Park (박산다라)'s outfit was horrible. Those yellow boots that match the bodysuit makes it look incredibly tacky.

Park Bom (박봄) on the other hand looked great! Her outfit was styled with a Rick Owens Drkshdw Denim Jacket, Jeremy Scott Crotch-less Leather Pants as well as Alexander McQueen Lace-Up 'Faithful' Boots.

Kim Yun Jin wears Victoria Beckham to 'Heart Is Beating' Press Conference

Actress Kim Yun Jin (김윤진) attended the media preview and press conference of 'Heart is Beating (심장이 뛴다)' on December 23 at Lotte Cinema Konkuk University.

Kim Yun Jin (김윤진) wore Victoria Beckham Asymmetric Corset Dress from Fall/Winter 2010 collection. The gold metallic jacquard dress is styled with gold accessories and Suecomma Bonnie pumps.

I thought she looked fantastic, her outfit was accessorized well. My only concern was.. Did she not know its a one shoulder dress?!! Or did her stylist not know it's a one shoulder dress? You can obviously see that she tucked the shoulder-flap behind her arms.

If you didn't know it was a one shoulder dress you probably won't notice it until you see her back view. A modification of the dress would be great. I wonder what does Mrs.B thinks of her look.

The dress was also worn by Cameron Diaz, Katie Piper and appeared on several magazines. Alessandra Ambrosio in Vogue Nippon December 2010, Anna Dello Russo in 1O Magazine Winter 2010.

Carmen Kass in Vogue UK December 2010, Dannii Minogue in Marie Claire UK January 2011 and Han Hye Jin (한혜진) in Vogue Korea December 2010.

'Heart is Beating (심장이 뛴다)' opens on January 6, 2011.

Girls' Generation's Sunny and Yuri attends 25th Golden Disk Awards

Previously, I covered 4 girls from Girls' Generation wearing Jardin de Chouette, Miu Miu and Moschino to the 25th Golden Disk Awards. Here's what Sunny and Yuri (유리) wore to the award show :

Both girls were dressed in Diane von Furstenberg Fall/Winter 2010 collection. Sunny's dress was modified shorter with a shorter bodice. I'm glad the dress was modified, the long bodice would look weird on her. Jinny Kim heels and Mzuu accessories to complete the look.

While Yuri (유리) wore her dress with Bell & Nouveau statement necklace, completing the look with a pair of Suecomma Bonnie sandals.

Yao Chen wears Céline to 'If You Are The One 2' Premiere

Actress Yao Chen (姚晨) have been busy promoting a few films. She attended the premiere of "If You Are The One 2 (非诚勿扰2)" on December 16, 2010 in Beijing.

The actress wore an ensemble from Céline Pre-Fall 2010. Her outfit was styled exactly like the lookbook, opting out the belt and wedges. She also styled her outfit with the coat as cape at the photocall.

Seen at fashion week, Anna Dello Russo opted out the gold cuffs and belt from the lookbook. She completes the look with a silver cuff, gold watch and Céline Wedges from Spring/Summer 2010.

Leave aside all the crazy outfits you seen on her, the minimalistic Dello Russo looks nothing short of fantastic. I actually prefer her in dressed like this.

I love both Vogue and Harper's Bazaar covers although they are reprints. I see that Marie Claire is going into another direction putting Korean celebrities on the cover which I thought was great since they always putting foreign celebrities on the cover and are reprints.

Huo Si Yan attends Louis Vuitton Store Opening in Nanning

Mainland China actress, Huo Si Yan (霍思燕) attended Louis Vuitton Store Opening, Ribbon Cutting Ceremony in Nanning, Southern China on December 11, 2010.

The actress was dressed in Louis Vuitton grey leather coat from Fall/Winter 2010 collection. She wore a Resort 2011 dress underneath the coat, completing the look with black sandals, pink Louis Vuitton bag and gold accessories.

I adore the dress on her, it suits her style. However I dislike the sandals she chose, it would be great if she chose the pumps seen on the lookbook or the bow pumps from Fall/Winter 2010.

Not long ago, Huo Si Yan (霍思燕) was also given the "Red Carpet Best Dressed" Award in Shanghai.

2NE1's CL & Minzy wears Chanel in 'It Hurts'

I'm sure some of you noticed what 2NE1 were wearing in their latest music video, It Hurts. And you're right, Chanel Fall/Winter 2010 pieces! While Park Bom (박봄) and Sandara Park (박산다라) were clad in Christopher Kane, CL (이채린) and Gong Minzy (공민지) were dressed in Chanel.

CL (이채린) have been sporting quite a number of fur outfits for 'It Hurts' promotion and I'm sure she have developed a love for them. Her hair suits her outfit and I love the make up in the music video. She also makes the coat looks really cozy and warm.

Unlike CL (이채린), 2NE1's youngest member Gong Minzy (공민지) was in Chanel Tweed Jacket. I would love to see a full head-to-toe look.

Both of them wore the Chanel Fall/Winter 2010 pieces better than on the runway. The lighting of the music video definitely made the clothes look better. What do you think of their outfits?

Don't forget to check out the Korean celebrities who attended the Chanel Fall/Winter Party!

Fan Bing Bing wears Moschino to a Signing Meet

Chinese film actress, Fan Bing Bing (范冰冰) attended a "silk-stocking (诗柔丝袜)" signing meet on December 16, 2010.

The actress was seen wearing an ensemble from Moschino Pre-Fall 2011 (Cheap & Chic) and Fall/Winter 2010 collection, respectively. Completing the outfit with fishnet stockings and black pumps.

I love it when she dresses casually, she is always so graceful whether she is at a promotional event or red carpet. Definitely one of China's best dressed actress, she's top in my list.

Go Ara for High Cut : 蠱惑的美

Aside from BoA Kwon (권보아), her fellow label mate, Go Ara (고아라) was also featured in the latest issue of High Cut magazine. Photographed by Choi Yong Bin, she wore designer garments from Cartier, Maison Martin Margiela, Miu Miu, Phillip Plein Couture by Supernormal, Thaila and many more.

Additional photos :

Go Ara (고아라) is a great model, it's nice to see her in high fashion editorials compared to Vogue Girl or Elle Girl although she has a commercial face. I am convinced that 2NE1's CL would die for the fur in the shoot.
