Han Hyo Joo shoots for Harper's Bazaar in Paris, models for Lovcat

Photographed by Lee Gunho for the March issue of Harper's Bazaar Korea, actress Han Hyo Joo (한효주) was dressed in garments from Salvatore Ferragamo Spring/Summer 2011 collection.

I was delighted when I saw the previews of Han Hyo Joo (한효주)'s March photoshoot with Bazaar since it was shot in Paris. I have always loved Paris, which is part of the reason this blog has "Eiffel" and the backdrop is just stunning.

Besides shooting for Harper's Bazaar in Paris, she was also photographed for Lovcat Paris' latest Spring/Summer 2011 ad campaign.

Kim Tae Hee wears Manoush and Love Moschino in 'My Princess'

In episode 11 of MBC drama, My Princess, actress Kim Tae Hee (김태희) wore a skirt from Manoush Fall/Winter 2011 collection as well as a Love Moschino boots.

The same boots was worn by Miss A's Fei in their editorial with Elle Girl. I love the boots and the skirt but I'm not loving the entire look. What do you think?

Wonder Girls attends Chloé Spring/Summer 2011 Fashion Show in Shanghai

The Wonder Girls travelled to Shanghai to attend Chloé Spring/Summer 2011 Fashion Show as well as their 5th anniversary celebrations in China held on February 25, 2011 at Shanghai Expo.

Wow, I don't even know where to start. The girls looked absolutely ethereal which is what I have been looking for from the Korean celebrities. The 360° of edgy, something soft and delicate. Definitely the best from the girls all-fashion week. And by that, I meant of all the fashion shows they have attended not just from this year. They are wearing dresses from Chloé Spring/Summer 2011 collection.

The people at Chloé who loaned the clothes to the girls deserve a raise (or maybe their stylist). Although I'm not sure about the shoe choices they made, especially Yubin (유빈)'s.

My best dressed at the fashion show was definitely Yenny (예은) although she wore the same dress as Hae Lim (혜림) (different length). Her blonde hair complimented the dress well and I was glad the shoes weren't visible. I also loved Sunye (선예)'s outfit but I disliked the neon orange nail pedicure she wore.

The Wonder Girls also attended Chloé press conference prior to the fashion show. All of them are wearing outfits from Chloé Resort 2011 collection.

Sohee (소희) was my best dressed at the press conference. The dress which we last saw on Yao Chen (姚晨) looked really cute on her. My least favorite would be Hae Lim (혜림) .. for obvious reasons.

Chloé will be presenting their Fall/Winter 2011 collection at Paris Fashion Week on March 7, 2011.

Fan Bing Bing wears Hermes to 'Buddha Mountain' Premiere Ceremony

Actress Fan Bing Bing (范冰冰) attended the premiere ceremony of 'Guanyin/Buddha Mountain (觀音山)' held in Beijing on February 24, 2011.

The actress was dressed in a suit from Hermès Spring/Summer 2011 collection. Completed with leather gloves, mini clutch and a silver necklace.

The look might have been over accessorized with the gloves and clutch but she worked it. Not a fan of the necklace she wore and the silk scarf on her waist. What do you think?

Celebrities attend GQ 10 Anniversary x Louis Vuitton Party

To commemorate it's 10 anniversary, GQ Korea held a party along with Louis Vuitton on February 24, 2011 at Louis Vuitton Cheongdam-dong, Kangnam-gu.

Son Tae Young (손태영) arrived at the event wearing a modified dress from Louis Vuitton Resort 2011 which Sofia Coppola wore to the 67th Venice Film Festival.

It definitely looks like the perfect "Little Black Dress" on her. Her outfit was styled with a clutch and sandals from Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2011.

Kim Jung Eun (김정은) wore the green puffy dress which we saw on Kim Tae Hee (김태희) and Huo Si Yan (霍思燕).

I didn't like the length of the dress on her and I thought she over accessorized the look with bangles on both wrist. The pink/purple bangles also didn't match the dress well.

Jung Woo Sung (정우성) opted for a blazer with LV's signature print all over. He spiced up the outfit with a scarf from Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2011 Mens collection. I love how the brogues with LV prints all over compliment his blazer.

Lee Byung Hun (이병헌) turned up in a tuxedo, although it might be true most men look dashing in a tuxedo.. it was boring for me. I'm so glad it was not the case for Jung Woo Sung (정우성).

My best dressed were both Son Tae Young (손태영) and Jung Woo Sung (정우성). I would love to see Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2011 collection grace the red carpets in South Korea in the future.

Who wore Valentino better? Im Su Jeong vs. Yeom Jeong Ah

About a month ago, actress Im Su Jeong (임수정) attended the production briefing of 'Come Rain, Come Shine' on January 20, 2011 wearing a dress from Valentino Resort 2011 collection.

Actress Yeom Jeong Ah (염정아) wore the same dress to MBC upcoming drama, Royal Family's press conference held on February 24, 2011.

If I were a stylist, I would not have picked a dress which an actress/celebrity have worn a month ago (I said this a lot of times.), unless your client has the confidence to look better than the actress.

In this case, I don't think Yeom Jeong Ah (염정아) looked better. The dress is way cuter on Im Su Jeong (임수정) and I prefer her choice of oxford boots compared to Yeom Jeong Ah (염정아)'s open toe pumps. Vote for your best dresser!

Maggie Cheung attends Burberry Prorsum Fall/Winter 2011 Fashion Show

British luxury fashion label, Burberry Prorsum held it's Fall/Winter 2011 fashion show during London Fashion Week at Kensington Gardens on February 21, 2011.

Maggie Cheung (张曼玉) attendeded the show among other celebrities like Alexa Chung, Kate Bosworth, Rachel Bilson and more. She opted for a dress and coat from Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2011 collection.

I'm not sure if she's wearing leg warmers or pants with the outfit but they looked horrible. I wished she wore the boots like on the runway. Love the turquoise Burberry brights bag she styled with the look.

Maggie Cheung (张曼玉) was also seen at Rodarte's fashion show which was held a week ago at New York Fashion Week.

Seo In Young to design bags for Nina Ricci, travels to Paris

Through Mnet's latest reality show, 'Seo In Young's Launch My Life', singer Seo In Young (서인영) is set to design bags for French luxury label, Nina Ricci. The reality show will also document her trip to Paris, France visiting Nina Ricci store in Avenue Montaigne and becoming a creative director for her project.

I was incredibly surprised to read that Seo In Young (서인영) is designing a bag collection instead of shoes since we all know she loves shoes and have a huge collection of them. I would think she would be a better shoe designer compared to a bag designer but let's see what she has to offer.
