Pace Wu wears Lela Rose to promote Barbie in Taipei

Taiwanese actress/model, Pace Wu (吴佩慈) attended a promotional event to promote Mattel's Barbie in Taipei, Taiwan on December 28, 2011.

Decked out in an all pink outfit from Lela Rose Resort 2012 collection and pink suede Christian Louboutin pumps. Accessorizing her look with Swarovski jewelries and a pink bag from Barbie.

I get that she's promoting Barbie but she looks like a housewife dressing up for her daughter's Barbie-themed birthday party. She looks old in that hairstyle.

Park Ha Seon wears Gucci to 2011 MBC Entertainment Awards

Actress Park Ha Seon (박하선) attended the 2011 MBC Entertainment Awards held at MBC Dream Center in Ilsan, South Korea on December 29, 2011.

The host of the award show wore a dress with floral organza from Gucci Fall/Winter 2011 collection. Her look was completed with a pair of embellished heels.

I was so excited to see another Korean actress in the flowy sheer dress from Gucci. Those dresses from the Fall/Winter 2011 collection definitely deserves more limelight on the Korean red carpet!

Song Ji Hyo wears Bottega Veneta to SBS Music Festival

Actress Song Ji Hyo (송지효) walked the red carpet of the SBS Korean Pop Music Festival held at KINTEX in Ilsan on December 29, 2011.

The beautiful host of the music festival opted for a bright red-orange dress from Bottega Veneta Resort 2012. Matching lip color and black open-toe boots to complete her look.

I was wondering which girl was bold enough to pick the bright orange dress from Bottega Veneta. I applaud Song Ji Hyo (송지효) for her bold choice although I think the dress was a little overwhelming on her. What do you think?

Pace Wu & Elva Hsiao wears Versace to various events

She was also seen wearing a white dress from Versace. From Spring/Summer 2012 she styled the dress with a pair of sheer tights and towering heels from Thierry Mugler Fall/Winter 2011.

Absolutely loved Pace Wu (吴佩慈) beautiful jewelries. Knowing Elva Hsiao (萧亚轩)'s sense of style, it's no longer weird to see her style those crazy Mugler shoes with such a beautiful dress. While I don't think they go well together, it suits her.

Donning a short curly red wig, she was dressed in Bell & Nouveau, Cesare Paciotti, Dolce & Gabbana, Neil Barrett, Stella McCartney, Yves Saint Laurent and more. Check out the editorial entitled, .

No doubt the fantasy shoot was a little lack luster compared to Wonder Girls' editorial for Vogue Korea.

No doubt Fan Bing Bing (范冰冰) is ending the year in style. Once again, flawless. Both the Tadashi Shoji and Valentino looks are ethereal, classic Fan Bing Bing (范冰冰).

Save the trouble of asking them for their dress/shoe/etc sizes.

Although the selection of accessories on SSENSE is small, they recently updated their site with lust-worthy bags, here are my picks!

Shin Min Ah wears L'Agence & Eleven Object to iPhone 4S Launch Party

Actress Shin Min Ah (신민아) attended the launch of SK Telecom 'Perfect Match' Apple iPhone 4S held at KT flagship store on November 11, 2011.

Wearing a black v-neck dress from L'Agence Fall/Winter 2011 collection, she accessorized her look with Eleven Object leopard print collar, Yves Saint Laurent Arty rings and a pair of sandals.

I don't understand why she would want to wear the leopard print collar. It is so out of place and unnecessary although I love the colors. What do you think of this look?

Yao Chen & Lulu Li Xiao Lu attends 2011 China Trend Awards

Chinese actresses, Yao Chen (姚晨) and Lulu Li Xiao Lu (李小璐) both attended the 2011 China Trend Awards held in Beijing, China on December 13, 2011.

Happy to see Yao Chen (姚晨) back on the red carpet after a month, she looked incredibly stunning and beautiful in the lace Alberta Ferretti dress from Resort 2012. Completed with a bronze Bottega Veneta clutch and simple jewelries.

Chinese actress, Lulu Li Xiao Lu (李小璐) opted for the same Dolce & Gabbana dress which Taiwanese actress, Michelle Chen (陈妍希) recently wore to the 48th Golden Horse Film Award.

I wasn't a fan of the dress on both actress. It looks like a night gown or something the celebrities wear to cover their baby bump.
