While I do love how Kim So Yeon (김소연) accessorized her look with the red belt and bag, I also loved the edge in Park Si Yeon (박시연)'s accessories. It was a tough call but I have to give it to Park Si Yeon (박시연), it worked for her from head-to-toe.

Stars attend Givenchy Launch Party in Seoul

Givenchy held a launch party and presented its Fall/Winter 2011 collection at Yeoksam-dong, Seoul on October 28, 2011. Celebrities were seen wearing frocks from Givenchy at the party, check it out!

Kim Hye Soo (김혜수) opted for a black sheer dress from Fall/Winter 2011. Completing her look with a grommet blazer as cape and Christian Louboutin peep toe pumps.

Gong Hyo Jin (공효진) was my best dressed at the event wearing a printed blouse from the Fall/Winter 2011 collection with a pair of leather pants and black boots. Androgyny at its best, her hair worked so well with it.

Uhm Jung Hwa (엄정화) outfit was disappointing. As much as I love her blouse with the jacket, the pants are just not working for me. Don't even mention about her shoes.

Lee Soo Kyung (이수경) was my worst dressed wearing a leather ruffled blouse from Pre Fall 2011. She opted for a black pencil skirt and sandals for her outfit, looking so much older than she should be! Someone tell this girl she needs a new hairstylist.

Kim Min Hee (김민희)'s outfit came closely after Gong Hyo Jin (공효진)'s. A sheer blouse with panther print, laced-leather skirt was completed with a pair of black boots and the beautiful clutch from Fall/Winter 2011. Like Kim Hye Soo (김혜수), she chose to wear her outerwear as a cape.

Jang Jae In (장재인) wore a runway look from Givenchy Fall/Winter 2011 menswear collection which is definitely too big for her. She looked like she was drowning in the outerwear but I appreciate that she chose to wear something from the men's collection.

Yoo Ah In (유아인) opted for a Rottweilers-printed t-shirt, completed with a plaid-sleeved jacket which I absolutely love. He was my male favorite at the event.

Lee Soo Hyuk (이수혁) kept it simple with a leather top, black denim and blue blazer.

Givenchy's Fall/Winter 2011 consist of incredibly stunning prints and it was so disappointing to see how bland the stars were dressed for the event.

By lifting her dress to show off her slender legs, she also embarrassed herself. Not her finest moment but she's a bombshell in that dress which Sienna Miller also wore to the BAFTAS in 2008.

Fan Bing Bing wears Jason Wu to 24th Tokyo International Film Festival

Chinese actress Fan Bing Bing (范冰冰) attended the opening ceremony of 24th Tokyo International Film Festival held at Roppongi Hills in Tokyo, Japan on October 22, 2011.

The Chinese beauty opted for a gown from Jason Wu Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Completing her look with Christian Louboutin Daffodile Aurora Boreale and Cartier jewelries.

While I love her hair and make up, I'm not too fond of the dress especially the ruffles. They are pretty unflattering on her. Not too crazy about those Christian Louboutin either but they are definitely better than those on the runway. What do you think?
