Girls' Generation models with "Lady Dior" for Cosmopolitan March 2011

Aside from endorsing and appearing in the beauty ads for Dior, the ladies of Girls' Generation models alongside Lady Dior Cannage bag for March's issue of Cosmopolitan.

Personally don't think the editorial "sells", their poses are too cheesy and definitely not something a lady who wears Christian Dior or carries a Lady Dior would do, isn't it? I didn't like the styling of the shoot either.

Covers of the Month : April 2011 (China Edition)

1. Vogue - Scarlett Johansson
2. Elle - Natalie Portman
3. Numéro - Fan Bing Bing (范冰冰)
4. Harper's Bazaar - Yao Chen (姚晨)
5. L'Officiel - Zhou Yun (周韵)
6. CéCi 姐妹 - Park Si Yeon (박시연)

My jaw literally dropped when I saw who was on the cover of April 2011's Numéro. The first time Numéro use a celebrity, it's Fan Bing Bing (范冰冰). The cover was pretty disappointing, her eye make up was too thick. As much as I love smokey eyes, this is just too much.

What are your thoughts on April 2011 China edition covers?

The model who made a first big screen appearance in 'Underdog Knight 2' wore a red dress from Versace Spring/Summer 2011 collection. Completing her outfit in simple stunning jeweleries and a pair of black flats.

Zhang Zilin (張梓琳) worked the dress without looking too sexy/slutty. Chic! The 1.82m model definitely didn't need to wear heels but I would have prefered a colored ballet flats.

Girls' Generation returns to South Korea in 'Coming Step'

Members of Girls' Generation were recently seen at Incheon Internation Airport returning from their trip to Bangkok, Thailand for MBC 50th Anniversary Korean Music Wave Concert.

Three members of Girls' Generation were seen wearing outfits from Korean label, Coming Step. Yoona (윤아) in a trench, Hyoyeon (효연) in an outerwear as well as Sunny in white cape.

While you can hardly do wrong in a trench coat, at an airport, I absolutely love Hyoyeon (효연)'s outerwear. Leather sleeves are making big statements this season and I also happen to love them.

Coming Step is definitely one of my favorite high street labels ever since I saw one of their T-Shirts worn by Seo In Young (서인영) which I fell in love with. Stars like Ha Ji Won (하지원), Kim Tae Hee (김태희), Park Han Byul (박한별), Park Shin Hye (박신혜) and more have been seen wearing Coming Step.

Who wore Fendi better? Zhang Ziyi or Kim Hee Ae

On March 2, actress Zhang Ziyi (章子怡) wore a vermilion colored Fendi dress from Spring/Summer 2011 to the press conference of Till Death Do Us Part (最爱).

Actress Kim Hee Ae (김희애) also wore the dress in episode 2 of SBS drama, Midas which aired on February 28, 2011. Accessorizing her outfit with a white coat from Obzéé, necklace and Fendi purse with black tights.

I love both outfits on it's own, they were styled nicely except for Kim Hee Ae (김희애) tights which she could do without. I wished she stayed away from the blacks.

Lee Yeon Hee (이연희) was easily my best dressed at the event wearing an electric blue dress from Mulberry Spring/Summer 2011 collection. Her outfit was completed with a pair of gold open-toe ankle boots and Mulberry clutch.

She was the only Korean celebrity wearing a dress (well aside from Park Si Yeon) making her stand out from the crowd. I love her entire outfit from head to toe, she could do without the clutch.

The actress once again don on an outfit from Fendi Spring/Summer 2011. Spicing up the outfit with the heavy "flatform" wedges from the same collection with a statement necklace.

Although I have excluded Singles in the monthly COTM post, Shin Min Ah (신민아) is on the cover with a short crop looking fabulous.

Zhang Ziyi wears Christian Dior to Asian Film Festival

While most foreign (US/Europe) celebrities have stayed away from wearing Christian Dior, the Asians seem quite unaware/indifferent over John Galliano's fiasco at Dior.

Zhang Ziyi (章子怡) wore a dress from Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2010 collection to the 5th Asian Film Festival held on March 21, 2011.

I adore the accessories she wore with the dress but didn't like the dress itself too much. What do you think?
