Seo Woo is sophisticated for Harper's Bazaar

Actress Seo Woo (서우) recently glams up into a sophisticated lady for Harper's Bazaar Korea. Sporting short locks (obviously a wig), Seo Woo wore garments from Michaa Prestige, Guess, Subin and more.

In Harper's Bazaar interview, Seo Woo (서우) mentions that her acting in Cinderella Sister was of poor quality. She puts in more effort on Hyo Sun (her character) than any other character she have portrayed. Whether she did good or bad, check out the photoshoot she did for Harper's Bazaar!

Seo Hyo Rim wears Bensoni to Music Bank

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In episode 557 of KBS's Music Bank, actress/model Seo Hyo Rim (서효림) wore a dress by Bensoni. The dress from Bensoni's Fall 2009 features graffiti lips print all over.

Seo carries the dress well, she paired with ankle high boots (not in picture). I would definitely love to see more Bensoni not just on music shows but drama and red carpets!

If you didn't know...
Bensoni was founded in 2007 by Benjamin Channing Clyburn and Sonia Yoon (both were classmates at Parsons). Co-Founder, Sonia Yoon was born in Seoul, South Korea and raised in London.

Bensoni is available at Big Drop, Intermix, Mick Margo, Helianthus.

Celebrities like Ashley Tisdale, Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lopez, Molly Sims, Rachel Bilson, Sophia Bush and Kim Kardashian have been seen wearing Bensoni designs.

Of course, not to miss out.. My other style heroine— Olivia Palermo is a huge fan of Bensoni.

Big Bang T.O.P goes quirky for Arena Homme

Admist of his solo debut, Big Bang's rapper, T.O.P recently scored a shoot with Arena Homme Korea, July's issue. Looking absolutely quirky (which is usually his style), T.O.P poses along with a green toy gun— link to his movie, 71-Into the Fire?

Photographed by Hong Jang Hyun, T.O.P dons on garments from Comme des Garçons, Damir Doma, Dolce & Gabbana, Erickson Beamon, Instantnology, Givenchy, Vivienne Westwood and more. Check out the shoot :

Absolutely love the styling and make-up for T.O.P, suits him a whole lot. On point. I wished they would have added some colors to the plain background like how they did with his hair and make up.

What do you think of this?..

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Aside of wearing Azzedine Alaïa to the VIP screening of Man of Vendetta, actress Park Joo Mi (박주미) also wore one of my favorite designer, Victoria Beckham to the press conference of movie on June 7, 2010.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Park Joo Mi (박주미) wore Victoria Beckham's Graphic Lace Dress from her Spring/Summer 2010 collection. The dress retails for a hefty amount of USD$5,330.26 on Net-A-Porter, now on sale for USD$3,730.95 in size UK6 (only a few left!!).

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The designer herself wore the dress (runway version) in an editorial for The Love Magazine.

I would have love the outfit if not for the ugly heels. The accessorizing was simple, nothing over-powering the lace dress.

Man of Vendetta hits the theaters on July 1, 2010.

The Portrait Of Shin Se Kyung

Photographed by Park Ji Hyuk, Actress Shin Se Kyung (신세경) poses for July's issue of W Korea. Entitled The Portrait Of The Lady, she dons on garments from Ann Demeulemeester, Celine, Chloe, Givenchy, Marni, Maison Martin Margiela, Miu Miu, Prada, Rick Owens and more as well as jeweleries from Van Cleef & Arpels.

Having seen Vogue's fantastic shoot, this really doesn't make the mark. Yes, Shin Se Kyung may be a really popular celebrity or a fabulous actress (I don't know.. never watched her shows), I don't think she can ever do high fashion. Especially when it's W magazine. I never liked her photoshoots, it's always the same expression. Nothing stunning or absolutely jaw-dropping. It's always boring, boring boring. If you love her, please tell me why.

Orange Caramel poses for Elle Girl

Having released their first mini album, After School's sub group Orange Caramel were recently photographed for Elle Girl July's issue. Orange Caramel consist of members Raina, Nana as well as After School's newest member, Lizzy.

Photographed by Park Ki Sook, the shoot took place at Taean-gun (태안군), South Korea. Check out the photographs of the trio looking absolutely lovely. You can see that they sure had a lot of fun!

I actually really like the concept of their mini album! While everyone else is going for edgy looks, Orange Caramel stays true to their image and goes super girly/dolly in pink polka dots skirts. Definitely refreshing after all that edgy image/concept the celebrities have been sporting!

Georgia Lee wears Alexander McQueen

It was a pleasant surprise upon seeing Singapore's most famous cosmetic/aesthetic surgeon, Dr Georgia Lee on teampetersigter.com. She is also a prominent figure in the fashion scene of Singapore. Not only seated in front rows, Lee have also walked the runways of Audi Fashion Week.

Georgia Lee wore Alexander McQueen's Spring/Summer 2010 Snake Chiffon Dress at Milan Menswear Spring/Summer 2010 Day 3, photographed by Team Peter Stigter.

Team Peter Stigter is a great fashion site which I recently stumbled upon after seeing the gorgeous street photographs of Anna Dello Russo :

The site not only has street-style photography but also features lots of fashion updates like the recent Milan Menswear Fashion Week, I would recommend fashion-lovers to go!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Actress Park Joo Mi (박주미) wore an Azzedine Alaïa nude dress to the VIP screening of Man of Vendetta on June 14, 2010. She wore the Alaia dress with a black waist belt, sandals and simple accessories.

10 days later, on June 24, 2010...
Actress Kim Min Hee (김민희) wore the same Azzedine Alaïa nude dress to the 9th Mise-en-scène Short Film Festival. She paired her look with Alaïa nude cut out belt, completing the look with a pair of black patent sandals and simple accessories.. just like Park Joo Mi.

The Alaïa Cut-Out Belt on Kim Min Hee (김민희) retails for $1,001.16 on matchesfashion.com. Available in both nude and black. There is also a different version available on Net-A-Porter.

Definitely prefer Kim's look over Park's but I wished she styled her hair differently. I dislike the choice of shoes in both looks.

I have been a fan of Alaïa for some time now, often seeing the designs on Victoria Beckham— my style heroine. I would definitely LOVE LOVE LOVE to see more Alaïa on the red carpet.

Stars attends Tory Burch Flagship store opening

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Whether it's on the red carpet or in the dramas, Tory Burch is no stranger to the Korean celebrities. Tory Burch opens it's latest flagship store at Cheongdam-dong, Seoul on June 23, 2010.

The event attracted stars like Lee Si Young (이시영), Girl's Generation's Jessica, f(x)'s Krystal and Sulli, Hwang Woo Seul Hye (황우슬혜), Kim Jung Eun (김정은), Jo Yeo Jung (조여정), Kim Hee Ae (김희애) as well as JYP Entertainment's new ladies, Miss A. Check out the red carpet photos :

(L-R) Lee Si Young (이시영), Girl's Generation's Jessica, f(x)'s Krystal and Sulli.

Lee Si Young was sporting her new locks at the event, nothing less than gorgeous. Jessica is my best dressed at the event. Sulli goes for a more mature look, the dress definitely looks big on her.

(L-R) Hwang Woo Seul Hye (황우슬혜), Kim Jung Eun (김정은), Jo Yeo Jung (조여정) and Kim Hee Ae (김희애)

Loved Hwang Woo Seul Hye outfits, you can't go wrong in black. I wished Kim Hee Ae would take off her sunglass, she gotta be less posey.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

While most of the celebrities were dressed head-to-toe Tory Burch, the members of Miss A paired their Tory Burch outfits with American Apparel's disco pants.

I really dislike what the girl on far right is wearing. Seo In Young wore that dress a thousand times better back in February while attending Tory Burch's fashion show in New York. What else is more annoying than neon pink hair? Don't let me start on their stockings..

Tory Burch also tweeted on June 22, 2010 that she was at a Korean Vogue photoshoot. It won't be long till we see Tory Burch in Korean Vogue! Follow her on Twitter!

Update (June 24, 2010) : Doing a shoot with the band f(x). How cool are they?!!!!!
Tory Burch is at a photoshoot with f(x)! No mention of which magazine.

Lee Hyori is Dazed & Confused

Aside from her numerous appearance in June's magazines and July's hot Cosmopolitan shoot, pop-singer Lee Hyori (이효리) covers Dazed & Confused July's issue! Photographed by Bo-Young Bae, entitled Eyes Wide Shut Lee Hyori (이효리) dons on garments mostly from Kokon To Zai. Check out the photoshoot :

Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic

Absolutely in love with the photoshoot. I didn't believe the cover girl was Lee Hyori (이효리) at first (probably still don't). Very high fashion, very model-like. I'm glad she shredded of part of her "idol-image" and goes model-esque for Dazed & Confused. I would love to see more celebrities do that more often. I can't wait to get my copy of Dazed & Confused!
