Song Hye Kyo wears Stella McCartney to 'Moment, Song Hye Kyo' Signing

Actress Song Hye Kyo (송혜교) held a fan-signing to celebrate the release of her first photobook on January 28, 2011 at Boon The Shop in Gangnam.

The gorgeous actress wore a trench coat and dress from Stella McCartney Resort 2011 which features Forsythia Botanical prints with a dress from the same collection.

Korean celebrities usually choose pumps/embellished sandals to go with their looks so I was really impressed when I saw the shoes she wore. Song Hye Kyo (송혜교) looks absolutely stunning! I give her 11/10 (+1 for braving the sub-zero weather).

Get Stella McCartney Forsythia Botanical-Print cotton jacket for USD$2045.00 on Net-A-Porter.

'Moment, Song Hye Kyo' contains photographs of Song taken in Argentina, France, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, United States of America during the past five years of her career. Top fashion photographers like Peter Lindbergh, Helena Christensen and Jean-François have taken part in photographing the actress for the photobook. Chinese celebrities like John Woo, Michelle Yeoh, Tony Leung, Wong Kar-Wai also left messages for her in the prologue.

Kim Tae Hee wears Jill Stuart and The Shoe in 'My Princess'

Have you guys caught MBC drama, My Princess yet?
The show reminds me of Goong (2006) which I am also watching at the moment. I'm sure most of you are interested in what Kim Tae Hee (김태희) wears in the show, do expect more posts in the future!

Kim Tae Hee (김태희) who acts as a princess in the show is introduced to every girls' dream (episode 5), a spanking new closet filled with tons of shoes and clothes. She put on a red Jill Stuart dress from Resort 2011 as well as a pair of embellished high heels from The Shoe.

The Portia Strapless Dress is currently retailing on for USD$825.00.

Fan Bing Bing attends Louis Vuitton Store Opening in Zhengzhou

Actress Fan Bing Bing (范冰冰) attended Louis Vuitton Store Opening in Zhengzhou on January 29, 2011.

She opted for a dress from Louis Vuitton latest Spring/Summer 2011 collection with a clutch to go. Completing the look with her favorite pair of Miu Miu Patent Leather pumps.

Fan Bing Bing (范冰冰) looks absolutely stunning, I love everything about this look but would prefer if she didn't choose those black pumps.

Celebrities caught in the same Marc Jacobs dress

I'm sure many of you were experts in identifying this Marc Jacobs Resort 2011 Floral Embroidery dress. There were tons of tips sent to me via formspring on the dress, thank you.

September 13, 2010 - Leighton Meester at V Magazine New York Issue Party.

November 9, 2010 - Gigi Leung (梁咏琪) at her Beijing Concert Press Conference.

December 31, 2010 - IU (아이유) at MBC Gayo Daejun.

January 27, 2011 - Kim Tae Hee (김태희) in MBC Drama, My Princess episode 7.

My choice stays firm with Leighton Meester being the best dressed among them. I would have given it to Kim Tae Hee (김태희) because of her personality in the drama if not for those shoes.

Celebrities attend Dior Store Re-Opening in Hong Kong

A-list Chinese celebrities attended Dior Grand Re-Opening in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong on January 28, 2011. Fan Bing Bing (范冰冰), Maggie Cheung (张曼玉), South Korean actress Choi Ji Woo (최지우) and many more were in attendance. Check out :

Maggie Cheung (张曼玉) was dressed in Christian Dior Fall/Winter 2008. Looking good ankles up.

Zhang Jing Chu (张静初) was my least favorite of the night. I will give a pass for the terrible hairstyle but definitely not the shoes, way too heavy to go with the dress.

Vivian Chow (周慧敏) was dressed in an orange Christian Dior Resort 2011 dress. She looked fantastic in the dress but I wished she wore some sparkles around her neck. One of my favorites.

Choi Ji Woo (최지우) was my other favorite of the night (besides Zhao Wei)! I absolutely adore the white Resort 2011 dress on her. Her hairstyle definitely made her look young.

Like Maggie Cheung (张曼玉), I guess Fan Bing Bing (范冰冰) was also ready for Chinese New Year which is just a few days away. Dressed in red head-to-toe, she's consistent on the runway but she didn't stand out among the others to me.

Zhao Wei (赵薇) was my favorite of the night wearing a lilac dress. I love the accessories she wore, she looked simply effortless.

Han Hyo Joo wears Azzaro to MBC Drama Awards

Actres Han Hyo Joo (한효주) attended the MBC Drama Awards which was held on December 30, 2010 at Ilsan MBC Center. She was awarded 'Daesang' and 'Popularity' awards for her role in Dong Yi.

The actress was dressed in Azzaro Fall/Winter 2010 collection which is currently available on for €4400.00.

I'm still unsure how I feel about the dress but I definitely did not like it at first sight. I would love to see the navy version on her.

Hyun Bin wears Givenchy to 'Come Rain, Come Shine' Briefing

Actor Hyun Bin (현빈) attended the production briefing of, 'Come Rain, Come Shine (사랑한다, 사랑하지 않는다)' on January 20, 2011 along with actress Im Su Jeong (임수정).

While his co-star was wearing Valentino, he opted a suit from Givenchy Spring/Summer 2011 collection which was presented last June.

Leopard prints aren't easy to wear. I didn't like it on him, what do you think?

Gong Hyo Jin wears Yves Saint Laurent to MBC Drama Awards

Actress Gong Hyo Jin (공효진) attended the MBC Drama Awards which was held on December 30, 2010. She was awarded 'Top Excellence Actress' and 'Best Couple' award (along with Lee Seon Gyun) for her role in Pasta.

She was dressed in a modified Yves Saint Laurent dress from Resort 2011. Completing the look with tights and ankle boots she designed.

The Thunder Banded Open Toe heels from "Excuse Me + pushBUTTON" retails for ₩198,000 on in both black and white.

I personally don't like the pair of ankel boots, they remind me of Givenchy. Other than that, I didn't think the collection was fantastic. Here's all 12 pairs of boots from the capsule collection :

Jessica shoots for Singles February 2011 Issue in Bali

Jessica of Girls' Generation recently traveled to Bali, Indonesia to shoot for Singles February issue. Entitled The Fabulous Travel, she is photographed by Kim Je Won.

Jessica was dressed in Blumarine, DKNY, Guess, Juicy Couture, Marc Jacobs, Missoni, Philosophy by Alberta Ferretti and more for the photoshoot. Check out the gorgeous editorial :

I would never expect Singles to produce such a great editorial, this is definitely my favorite from February 2011 publications. The colors are vibrant, loud and exciting which suits the concept of the shoot.

Jessica did a great job, I would die to be in that stunning Missoni dress (first). She definitely makes the clothes sell (to me), the Alberta Ferretti dress is to-die-for.

Sandara Park wears Lanvin for H&M in Etude House Commercial

Who knew 2NE1 would pick up a dress from Lanvin for H&M?!
Sandara Park (박산다라) is currently the face of Etude House, Korean cosmetic brand. She did a solo CF and photoshoot for "Miss Tangerine".

Dara is seen wearing a neon pink dress from Lanvin for H&M collection. Styling the outfit with the floral bracelet from the same collection as well as Karen Walker sunglasses (2nd from right).

I love her expression in the poster advertisement but I wouldn't apply all-orange make up if I was the make up artist. It feels like concept was trying too hard. A natural make up with the orange lip color, nude nail lacquer would make a huge difference.

Don't forget to check out her previous look for Etude in Gerlan Jeans and Tsumori Chisato.

Lee Soo Hyuk wears Burberry Prorsum to 'White Christmas' Press Conference

Lee Soo Hyuk (이수혁) press conference for KBS upcoming weekend drama, White Christmas (화이트 크리스마스) on January 24, 2011 at Seoul Garden Hotel.

The model/actor wore an outfit from Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2011 collection.

I'm not surprised he picked out an outfit from Burberry Prorsum. The collection suits him a lot but his outfit does looked a little weird. It probably has to do with the tucked in top.

The eight-episode drama premiers on January 30, 2011.

All Asian cast at Givenchy Spring/Summer 2011 Haute Couture

Front : Shu Pei (Next), Tao Okamoto (Ford), Sun Fei Fei (Supreme), Jiang Xiao Yi (Silent), Kang So Young (Marilyn), Du Juan (IMG)
Back : Ming Xi (Ford), Hye Park (Trump), Liu Wen (Marilyn), Ai Tominaga (Marilyn)

I love an all Asian magazine editorial and this all Asian cast is fantastic!
If V Magazine can dedicate a plus-size issue, I don't see why any magazine can't go all Asian!

I absolutely loved Givenchy Fall/Winter 2010 Haute Couture and this is no exception. Designer, Ricardo Tisci was inspired by Japanese choreographer and dancer, Kazuo Ohno.

Celebrities attends 'Somewhere' Preview and Reception in Tokyo

Film, Somewhere directed by Sofia Coppola held it's preview and reception on January 22, 2011 at Louis Vuitton Roppongi Hills in Tokyo, Japan. Japanese celebrities and models like Kiko Mizuhara, Ai Tominaga, Angela, Shinobu Terajima, Elli-Rose and ICONIQ were in attendance. Check out which Louis Vuitton outfits they were wearing :

I did a write up on Kiko Mizuhara's outfit previously, check it out if you haven't.

Ai Tominaga who also modeled for the collection made sure she didn't wear the same dress. She opted for a stunning flowy dress from the collection with a high slit. Stunning.

I absolutely adore Angela's suit. A very daring outfit from the Spring/Summer 2011 collection. The adrogynous look works for her, I would love a bold non-glossy red lip.

Some of you may not like what actress Shinobu Terajima wore but I thought she looked great in the jumpsuit. Would love to see it in motion.

Model Elli-Rose wore a dress/coat from Louis Vuitton Resort 2011. Do you think the puffy look works for her? I'm not big on her outfit but it was well accessorized.

ICONIQ also opted for an entire outfit from Louis Vuitton Resort 2011 collection. I'm not a fan of the look. I would prefer if she wore long tailored pants.

Celebrities attends Prada Spring/Summer 2011 Fashion Show in Beijing

Prada held it's first runway show outside Europe on January 23, 2011 at Central Academy of Fine Arts Museum in Beijing. Models like Arizona Muse, Siri Tollerød, Sun Fei Fei walked the runway while big name stars like Gong Li (巩俐), Tang Wei (汤唯) and more were sitted in the front row.

Cecilia Cheung (张柏芝) was my best dressed at the event, wearing a modified dress from Spring/Summer 2011. Her outfit was completed with a fur outerwear, black clutch and pumps.

Tang Wei (汤唯) opted for white dress with baroque prints. I can't help but keep thinking it's a monkey print instead of a lady. Pink clutch and black platform mary janes to complete the look.

Maggie Cheung (张曼玉) wore a dress which was presented at the Beijing runway show. Styling it with a black turtleneck, gloves, tights+socks with a black satin pumps. I'm not a fan of this look.

Gong Li (巩俐) outfit was disastrous from head-to-toe.

Ha Ji Won (하지원) chose a simple black tube dresss with a white fur shrug, gold clutch and red pumps. A look which I did not expect at all. I wished she chose a dress which is more eye-catching.

She was also seen carrying Prada's latest Spring/Summer 2011 handbag when she was leaving South Korea for Beijing at the airport. Although the handbag have yet to be photographed, it's on Prada's latest Spring/Summer 2011 ad campaign video which was recently released.

Kiko Mizuhara attends 'Somewhere' Preview, photographs for AnOther

Actress/Model Kiko Mizuhara (水原希子) attended the preview and reception of 'Somewhere' at Louis Vuitton Roppongi Hills on January 22, 2011 in Tokyo, Japan.

Dressed in Louis Vuitton latest Spring/Summer 2011 collection. Completing the look with a matching clutch, fan and black sandals.

She looked absolutely stunning in the purple dress, her orange lip was perfect for the look. As much as I dislike the heels she wore, she looked great overall.

The 20 year old Japanese model was also photographed by Lina Scheynius for AnOther Magazine first online issue. Kiko Mizuhara was dressed in Hussein Chalayan Spring/Summer 2011 collection for the shoot.

Kiko Mizuhara talks about her love for cute things, Céline, London and travelling. Read her interview on

Kim So Yeon wears Blumarine to 2011 Asia Model Festival Awards

Actress Kim So Yeon (김소연) attended the 2011 Asian Model Festival Awards held on January 21, 2011 at Mariott Hotel. The actress was award 'Asia Special Award' and 'KID Model Award' at the ceremony.

The actress wore a body-hugging leopard print dress from Blumarine Spring/Summer 2010 collection. Her look was completed with a simple necklace, gold cuff as well as an open-toe ankle boots with chains which I really dislike.

I'm not a huge fan of leopard prints so I'm not big on Blumarine's collection. The ankle boots looks really heavy with the dress, I would prefer if she wore shoes which are not black in color.

Juri Ueno wears Prada to the premiere of 'Nodame Cantabile: The Final Movement'

Japanese actress, Juri Ueno (上野 樹里) arrived in Seoul, Korea on January 22 to promote 'Nodame Cantabile: The Finale Movement'.

Known as Megumi Noda/Nodame in the show, the actress wore a color-blocked dress from Prada Spring/Summer 2011 to Gangnam COEX Megabox. Her outfit was completed with a pair of tights and black satin pumps.

As much as I hate colored tights or tights in generally, I think they worked with the dress. Reportedly, Juri Ueno (上野 樹里) was admitted to the hospital due to gastritis, I hope she gets some rest despite her tight work schedule.

Ha Ji Won wears Blumarine to 20th Seoul Music Awards

Actress Ha Ji Won (하지원) attended the 20th Seoul Music Awards which was held on January 20, 2011. The actress was dressed in Blumarine Fall/Winter 2010 to present one of the biggest awards at the award show.

Just like Girls' Generation and Miss A, Ha Ji Won (하지원)'s outfit was styled just like the runway. Disappointing, I wish their stylist(s) would put in more effort.

If I was styling her, I would take away the Blumarine leather jacket and replaced it with a Rick Owens' jacket. Charlotte Olympia Nappa Patent Toe Lace Up Boots to go with the edgy look.

Miss A wears Kaal E.Suktae to 20th Seoul Music Awards

While Girls' Generation was dressed in British designer outfits, Miss A supports Korean designer, Kaal E.Suktae at the 20th High1 Seoul Music Awards which was held on January 20, 2011. Check out their outfits :

As much as I loved the collection, I don't like how it is translated on the red carpet. Maybe its the way Miss A were styled but I dislike the outfits on them.

I would also like to praise them for wearing the bold pieces from the Spring/Summer 2011 collection. But like Girls' Generation, their stylist merely pulled the pieces for them pairing it with high heels. I wished gorgeous pieces from the collection would be styled differently from the runway. What are the celebrities-stylists up to lately?!
