They were dressed in flamboyant outfits which reminds me of 2NE1. From their hairstyle to footwear, lots of studs, badges, prints, chains and leather.

How would you describe your music?
Like our fashion styles, it's colorful.

Have you always wanted to become performers?
We have always wanted to be performers since young.

How do you feel when you attract the attention of the female fans?
My heart goes toki-toki (pumps faster).

It is your first time in Singapore, how does it feel like?
Yes, it is our first time in Singapore. It is a beautiful place. We went to see the Merlion yesterday but there's was nothing coming out from the mouth, it was a little disappointing.

What are the difference when SuG was signed to PS Company (before) and Pony Canyon (now), are there any benefits?
It was the same as before, we just wanted to share our music to a larger audience.

Do you go out in the streets with no make-up? If so, do you get notice often?
We don't go out with make-ups when we're shopping or in the streets. We do get noticed, but not often.

Taiwanese singer Elva Hsiao (萧亚轩) attended the launch and press conference of Yao Monster Audio Visual Products (Dr. Dre Monster x Yao Ming) in Taiwan on July 27, 2010.

The Givenchy Print Camouflage Jersey Wedges retails for USD$1957.50 on Luisa via Roma.

Despite being in those 25cm wedges, she still can't quite compare to NBA star, Yao Ming (姚明).

Dazed & Confused : That's a Wonder of You

The Wonder Girls were back in Korea during May to promote their latest single, 2 Different Tears. Despite their hectic schedules, Wonder Girls' Ahn Sohee (안소희) managed to find time to shoot for Dazed & Confused August's issue.

Named as the "fashionista", Sohee wore designer outfits from 3.1 Philip Lim, Ann Demeulemeester, Agent Provocateur, Balenciaga, Benoit Missolin, Christopher Kane for Topshop, Dolce & Gabbana, Eddie Borgo, Jil Sander, Limi Feu, Maison Martin Margiela, Nina Ricci, Rick Owens and more. Photographed by Kim Ji Yang, check out the shoot :

Dazed & Confused is getting interesting now that I see the celebrities getting on the cover. I'm not a huge fan of the cover, it seems like I-D magazine to me. Those rhinestones on the sides of her lips are a huge NO-NO for me, they look bad on her.. her nails don't look great either.

This editorial just comes off a little weird to me, I dislike the eye make-up and I wish Sohee had stronger emotions in the photographs. Some of them just falls flat but she definitely worked the clothes. The last photo looks like it came from another shoot. It's refreshing seeing her wear different clothes compared to Wonder Girls' stage outfits.

Taiwanese actress, Shu Qi (舒淇) made an appearance to promote 淇迹, Net East game held at Ocean Terminal, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong on July 27, 2010.

She wore a bright summer dress from Stella McCartney Spring/Summer 2010. The Strapless Ruffled Dress is on sale now for USD$884.00 (usual. USD$1965.00) on Neiman Marcus.

Definitely a fan of the look though I dislike the dark bracelets. I love the colors of the shoes too, matches the dress well! What do you think?

Shu Qi (舒淇) is also the ambassador for the game.

Kim Jung Eun wears Balmain to 'I Am Legend' press conference

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Actress Kim Jung Eun (김정은) attended the press conference of upcoming SBS drama, I Am Legend on July 28, 2010.

Kim Jung Eun (김정은) wore a dress from Balmain Spring/Summer 2010 collection.

Woo.. 2 Balmain outifts in a row?
I definitely prefer this look over Bae Doo Na's outfit but I really dislike how she accessorized the look. It would look perfect if she wore half the rings and bangles and chose a better choice of shoes. But wow, she's 34 years old rockin' Balmain!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

International R&B Pop Singer, Beyoncé Knowles also wore the same dress to the post Grammy Awards dinner hosted by Jay-Z, pairing the dress with Gucci Horsebit Heel from Spring/Summer 2010.

I Am Legend will debut on August 2, 2010 taking the time slot of Coffee House.

Made-believe on screen tv couple of variety show, We Got Married, Jo Kwon (조권) of 2AM and Ga In (가인) of Brown Eyed Girls scored a 20-page shoot for Instyle Wedding in Bali, Indonesia.

Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic

Photographed by Joong-Suk Oh, the "newlyweds on their honeymoon" was the concept of the shoot. Despite cloudy weather on the 2 day of shooting, the 'couple' both enjoyed themselves causing much suspicion between the staff whether they are dating for real.

The couple both designed outfits (above) for each other with the help from professionals which I thought was really applausable.

I'm sure this is an eyecandy to many despite the bad hairstyles, don't you agree with me?

Li Bing Bing wears Louis Vuitton at Shanghai Hong Qiao Airport

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Actress Li Bing Bing (李冰冰) was recently spotted at Shanghai Hong Qian International Airport, returning from the United States after voice dubbing for film, Snow Flower and the Secret Fan.

Li Bing Bing (李冰冰) wore Louis Vuitton leggings from Fall/Winter 2009, pairing it with a metallic/yellow tunic dress. She accessorized the look with hand cuffs belt *shudders* and what seems to be a pair of Alexander McQueen boots.

Wow, what a mess! Same thing happened with Leighton Meester at the 2009 MET Ball, similar outfits. Li's outfit is just terrible, I would not be caught dead wearing that. I hope she won't bring similar outfits to the red carpet...

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Actress Bae Doo Na (배두나) attended the press conference of MBC's new weekend drama, Gloria on July 27, 2010. Fellow cast members, Seo Ji Seok (서지석), Lee Chun Hee (이천희) and So Yi Hyun (소이현) were also in attendance.

Finally finally finally! I've waited long enough for an actress to wear Balmain!
Bae Doo Na (배두나) wore the Sequin Destroy Mini Dress from Balmain Spring/Summer 2010 retailed for a whopping USD$26.925 on Luisa via Roma, no longer available. Completing the look with Balmain Lace-Up Ankle Boots which Japanese singer, Chisa worn previously.

Spanish actress, Patricia Conde and Sienna Miller have both worn the dress on various occasions. While Patricia Conde wore the exact dress Bae Doo Na wore, Sienna Miller opted for the runway version with distressed torns.

I definitely prefer Sienna Miller's runway dress but I will give it to Bae Doo Na for her choice of shoes, I also love her make up.

Gloria debuts on July 31, 2010 taking the time slot previously occupied by Like A Dandelion (Sat & Sun 19:55).

Ayumi Hamasaki (浜崎 あゆみ) released her latest album, Rock 'n' Roll Circus on April 14, 2010. The album jacket features Hamasaki standing by a London Telephone booth with a Union Jack hat.

Ayumi Hamasaki wore Moschino Spring/Summer 2010 jacket with mini flower embellishments. Definitely a fan of the styling and set.

Katy Perry also wore the same jacket in her Nylon March 2010 spread.

International pop-star, BoA (권보아) have teased us with a few pictures for her anticipated comeback with her latest Korean album after 5 years. SM Entertainment have also teamed up with Samsung to produce BoA's music video in 3D, which I believe to be the first in the industry (Girls' Generation to follow suit).

BoA (권보아) wore a white lace dress from Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2010. Completing the look with rose black bangles embellishments, fur shrug, fishnet stockings and a flower head piece made of real flowers.

Don't forget to check out BoA's latest MV for her title track, Game.


BoA's album, Hurricane Venus will drop on August 2, 2010.

Zhang Ziyi (章子怡) attended the Yao Foundation Charity Gala held on July 23, 2010 at Beijing Crowne Plaza. NBA stars like Baron Davis, Brandon Jennings, Chase Budinger, Hasheen Thabeet, DaJuan Summers, Amir Johnson, Steve Nash were also in attendance.

I love the dress on her, not the accessories and hairstyle. But she definitely looked better than Radha Mitchell who wore the same dress to the premiere of The Waiting City in Sydney.

MBLAQ in Virtual Reality

Photographed by Ik-Soon Yim, the 5 members of MBLAQ once again graces the pages of CeCi Magazine. Donning on designer wear from Dr Denim, General Idea, Mzuu, Solid Homme, Uniqlo, W Dress Room and more, check out the shoot!

Not a fan of the color blocking, probably because of the background. But definitely an interesting and colorful shoot, which we don't see usually. The set reminds me of 2NE1's first mini album set, probably the same? Not the best I've seen from them.

MBLAQ also did an interview with CeCi Magazine, register at AbsoluteMBLAQ forums to see translated interview as well as HQ scans.
