Seohyun & Taeyeon Attends 21st Seoul Music Awards


Girls' Generation attended the 21st Seoul Music Awards held on January 19, 2012 at Seoul Olympic Park Gymnastics Stadium in Seoul, South Korea.

Seohyun (서현) opted for a rather formal ensemble from Nina Ricci Resort 2012 collection. My favorite item from her outfit her are shoes which are nothing less than gorgeous. They clearly accessorized the outfit.

Taeyeon (태연) opted for a white ensemble. The white outerwear from Johnny Hates Jazz Spring/Summer 2012 is styled with a matching shorts, white blouse and black sandals which I disliked.

The ladies took home a total of two awards, namely 'Bonsang Award' and 'Popularity Award' that evening.

Kelly Chen Wears Christopher Kane To Pegasus Motion Pictures Dinner


Cantopop singer and actress, Kelly Chen (陈慧琳) attended the Pegasus Motion Pictures dinner held at Grand Hyatt Hotel in Hong Kong, China on January 28, 2012.

The 7-month pregnant actress opted for a neon pink pleated dress from Christopher Kane Resort 2012 collection. Styling it with a pair of colorful sandals.

Don't you love her maternity outfit? What a chic and stylish mum. Loved the pair of sandals but I wish she wore a skinny waist belt to accentuate her baby bump.


Get the Neon Pleated Wool-Blend Crepe Dress for USD$1560.00 on Net-A-Porter.

Lee Yeon Hee Wears Miss Gee Collection To SK-II Pitera Essence Event


New face of SK-II, actress Lee Yeon Hee (이연희) attended the 'My Surprise, SK-II Pitera Essence' event held at Beyond Museum located in Cheongdam-dong, Gangnam-gu in Seoul, South Korea on January 27, 2012.

The beautiful actress opted for a white lace floral embroidered dress from Korean designer, Miss Gee Collection Spring/Summer 2011 collection. She kept her accessories minimal with a simple necklace and cap-toe pumps from Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2012.

Such a beautiful outfit, flawless. Lee Yeon Hee (이연희) worked her outfit from head to toe. I loved the fact that she picked a dress from a Korean designer when she could easily have worn a piece from Louis Vuitton. Double thumbs up!

Lee Na Young Wears Burberry Prorsum To 'Howling' Showcase


Actress Lee Na Young (이나영) attended the showcase of film, 'Howling (하울링)' held at Seoul Hyundai Department Store located in Apgujeong, Gangnam-gu.

The actress opted for a dark purple trench coat from Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Accessorizing her look with an embellished collar blouse and same heels seen on the runway.

Lovely outfit but I wished she opted for a different pair of heels like the lust-worthy pair of beaded leather sandals from Resort 2012.

Who Wore Azzedine Alaïa Better? Barbie Hsu vs. Seo Hyo Rim


Back in October 2011, Barbie Hsu (徐熙媛/大S) attended a promotional event for JOYCE Boutique wearing a lace Azzedine Alaïa. Black tights and oxford pumps to complete her look.

Actress Seo Hyo Rim (서효림) was caught wearing the same dress to the VIP premiere of 'Nameless Gangster (범죄와의 전쟁 : 나쁜놈들 전성시대)' on January 26, 2012. She accessorized her look with thigh high curve heel boots à la Mugler/Walter Steiger.

I love those suede boots with the dress so Seo Hyo Rim (서효림) wins for me.

Kim Hyo Jin Ties The Knot In Oscar de la Renta


Actress Kim Hyo Jin (김효진) tied the knot with actor Yoo Ji Tae (유지태) at The Shilla Seoul Hotel on December 2, 2012.

Kim Hyo Jin (김효진) opted to wear an Oscar de la Renta Spring 2012 bridal collection
on her big day. She accessorized her look with a swarovski-encrusted crown.

A very simple and fitting gown for the actress, beautiful. I only wished she wore a veil.

Kim Jung Eun Wears Valentino To 'Hanbando' Press Conference


Actress Kim Jung Eun (김정은) attended the press conference of upcoming drama, 'Hanbando (한반도)' held at Imperial Palace Hotel in Seoul, South Korea on January 26, 2012.

The star opted for a red off-shoulder bow crepe dress from Valentino Resort 2012 collection. Completing her look with a pair of silver earrings and red suede pumps.

The dress is really adorable on her. It may be too predictable that she opted for matching pumps but I'm glad it's not a pair of black pumps.


The Off-The-Shoulder Wool-Blend Crepe Dress retails for USD$2290.00 on Net-A-Porter.

Jung Ryeo Won Wears Dolce & Gabbana To 'Never Ending Story' Press Conference


Actress Jung Ryeo Won (정려원) attended the press conference and VIP premiere of 'Never Ending Story (네버엔딩스토리)' held on January 9, 2012 at CGV Wangshipri in Seongdong, Seoul.

The actress opted for a jewel embellished lace dress from Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Completed with a pair of gold sandals and TRosegold jewelries.

I thought it was a beautiful outfit however, I am not a fan of the dress. What do you think?

Ni Ni Attends Dior Homme & Christian Dior Haute Couture Fashion Shows


Let's all welcome the new girl in town! Chinese actress, Ni Ni (倪妮) rose to prominence through her role in Zhang Yimou (张艺谋)'s film, 'The Flowers of War (金陵十三钗)'. She was seen at the front row at both Dior Homme Fall/Winter 2012 and Christian Dior Spring 2012 Haute Couture fashion shows.

At Dior Homme fashion show held on January 21, she opted for a black outerwear and velvet pants from Christian Dior Fall/Winter 2011. Accessorizing her look with a hat, Dior clutch and dark blue suede shoes.


She also attended Christian Dior Spring 2012 Haute Couture fashion show on January 23 wearing a red dress from Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2012. Arriving at the show space, she wore a two-tone coat from Resort 2012. Dior clutch and red peep-toe pumps to complete her look.

I hope this won't be the last time we see Ni Ni (倪妮) at fashion shows. Definitely hoping to see more of her red carpet fashion choices!

Who Wore Balmain Better? Uhm Jung Hwa vs. Sooyoung


Early January, actress/singer Uhm Jung Hwa (엄정화) attended the press conference of 'Dancing Queen (댄싱퀸)' wearing an ensemble from Balmain Fall/Winter 2011 and Resort 2012 collection.

Sooyoung (수영) from Girls' Generation was also seen wearing the same Balmain blazer from Resort 2012 to the 21st Seoul Music Awards held on January 19, 2012 at the Seoul Olympic Park Gymnastics Stadium.

Don't you think that sometimes celebrities make luxury items look so cheap? In Sooyoung (수영)'s case, yes. It looked like it belonged to a high street brand as opposed to a luxury French fashion house. Overall, both ladies wore it with their own style. I do love the subtle details in Sooyoung (수영)'s outfits.

Eiffel In Seoul Calendar: January 2012 feat. Song Ji Hyo


The January 2012 calendar is finally here. Featuring Song Ji Hyo (송지효) in her beauty editorial for Harper's Bazaar Korea, photograhed by Lim Han Soo.

I really enjoyed the editorial. The red was perfect for the 'Lunar New Year/음력 설날' festive season. The only thing I disliked about the editorial was her nude lips which looked like her lips were dry; cracked.

Her wax figure is a replica of her appearance at Shiatzy Chen Fall/Winter 2011 fashion show during Paris Fashion Week in March last year.

Park Kahi (박가희) of After School also attended 'Dream High 2 (드림하이2)' press conference alongside Ailee (에일리) on January 18, 2012.

While I can't confirm if the jumpsuit is definitely from Valentino Resort 2012, the cut of it replicates the design of Valentino 'Caddy' Cross-Back Jumpsuit which I absolutely love in red.

The jumpsuit fitted her perfectly. I've always loved seeing her in jumpsuits but I would love it more if she accessorize her look with more jewelries.

Joey Yung Wears Elie Saab To 2011 Jade Solid Gold Best Ten Music Awards


Cantopop singer, Joey Yung (容祖兒) attended the 2011 Jade Solid Gold Best Ten Music Awards held on January 8, 2012 in Hong Kong, China.

The star was dressed in a beautiful embroidered gown with floral appliqué from Elie Saab Spring 2011 Haute Couture. Keeping her look simple with a pair of swarovski earring.

I love how this stray far from the 'edgy' side of her. Incredibly feminine and beautiful outfit, the hairstyle works for the dress.

The necklace and cuffs were perfect for the look. Not sure about those tights but it worked as a whole.

She opted for an embellished jacket from Moschino Spring/Summer 2012. Styling it with a white blouse, black pants and leather boots.

I absolutely adore the embellished trench from Burberry Prorsum but I am not loving it on her. Don't you think she looks like a bullfighter in Moschino?

Seohyun & Jessica Wears Versace, Nina Ricci To 23rd International Jewellery Tokyo


Seohyun (서현) and Jessica (제시카) of Girls' Generation attended the 23rd International Jewellery Tokyo held on January 12, 2012.

Seohyun (서현) definitely stood out among the rest since she was the only girl in a white dress. Her Versace dress from Spring/Summer 2012 was styled with Jimmy Choo Lance strappy sandals.

Jessica (제시카) on the other hand was dressed in a black dress with lace from Nina Ricci Resort 2012. An exposed black bra and silver peep-toe pumps to complete her look.

Both ladies looked beautiful at the exhibition but Jessica (제시카)'s bra defeats the purpose of the lace panel on the dress. She could have gone with a nude-colored bra instead. What are your thoughts?

Kelly Chen Wears Carven To The Recording Of 'May姐有请'


Kelly Chen (陈慧琳) attended the recording of TVB variety, 'May姐有请' on December 28, 2011 in Hong Kong, China.

The Cantopop actress and singer opted for a plaid dress from Carven Fall/Winter 2011 collection. Accessorizing her outfit with black cap-toe lambskin boots from Chanel.

The dress is really cute. However, I don't think it suits her. Neither am I a fan of those boots with the dress. What do you think?
