Have you ever thought of doing fashion photography yet not sure how and where to start? Photographer, André Wolff and Parsons professor/fashion designer, Patricio Sarmiento teamed up to launch a fashion workshop in Paris, summer of 2012.

The fashion photography workshop offers a historical introduction to the evolution of fashion photography, shooting sessions with professional models, stylists in studios and on-location in the beautiful Paris.

Ella Chen (陳嘉樺) attended the store opening of Loewe located at Taipei 101 in Taipei, Taiwan on February 24, 2012. She was spotted wearing the same dress with a pair of sandals from the same collection.

Yoona (윤아) was present to receive the 'Album Of The Year' award on behalf of Girls' Generation. She opted for a white floor-length gown from Eryn Brinié. She accessorized her look with simple jewellery and a pair of glitter pumps.

Lovely outfit but she definitely needs to put on some weight. Even the model looks better than her.

Taiwanese pop-singer, Jolin Tsai (蔡依林) was present at the Burberry Prorsum Fall/Winter 2012 fashion show held in Kensington Gardens in London, England on February 20, 2012.

She opted for a v-neck printed dress from Burberry Prorsum Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Styling it exactly like the runway with an additional trench coat from the same collection.

I really enjoyed seeing the dress on her. It fitted her perfectly with the right amount of cleavage. However, I am not a fan of those shoes but I'll let it pass considering it is a Burberry fashion show.

Kim Nam Joo Wears Louis Vuitton To 'Unexpected You' Press Conference

Actress Kim Nam Joo (김남주) attended the press conference of upcoming KBS 2TV weekend drama, 'Unexpected You (넝쿨째 굴러온 당신)' held at Seoul Imperial Palace Hotel on February 21, 2012.

Yoona (윤아) wore a green pleated dress from the same collection. A clutch and wedges from Burberry to complete her look. Unsure about the length of her dress but she looked beautiful.

Both Tiffany (티파니) and Yoona (윤아) were seen wearing Burberry Prorsum coats at the fashion show.

The beautiful star opted for an ensemble from Moschino Cheap & Chic Resort 2012 collection. Accessorizing her look with black tights and pumps.

Hated those scarf-like ruffles. Way to overwhelming for the mesh polka-dot skirt although it covered the tacky 'diva' word. Way too ill-fitting on her figure.

She opted for a beautiful blue gown from Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2011 Haute Couture collection. Accessorizing her look with similar sandals and stunning jewellery.

I personally loved the dress on the runway but it lacked the drama on Ni Ni (倪妮). What a pity.

Han Chae Young Wears Diesel & Rick Owens To 'Papa' VIP Premiere

Actress Han Chae Young (한채영) attended the VIP premiere of film, 'Papa (파파)' held at Lotte Cinema in Kokuk University, Seoul on January 17, 2012.

Deanie Ip (叶德娴) opted for a floral printed dress from Balenciaga Fall/Winter 2011 collection. Accessorizing her outfit with a pair of gold bow pumps which seems to be from Valentino and suede gloves.

Throughly impressed. I loved her Lanvin outfit at the 48th Golden Horse Film Awards and enjoyed her Balenciaga dress. The only thing I'm fussy about are those gloves. Aside from that, I am definitely looking forward to her red carpet appearances.

'The Apartment' - Kang So Young For W Korea February 2012

It's been quite some time since I featured Kang So Young (강소영) on Eiffel In Seoul. The model was photographed by Yoo Young Kyu for an editorial in February's issue of W Korea.

The stylish model was draped in garments from Fendi Spring/Summer 2012 collection. The highlight of the editorial was definitely her hair color. I loved the grey-ish hairstyle but didn't fancy the goth make up.

The beautiful actress wore a black lace dress from Prada Resort 2012 with a stunning ruby-colored statement necklace, also from Prada. Black patent oxford shoes with socks to complete her outfit.

Interesting shoe option. Would have loved if she wore a pair of heels. Absolutely adore how the ruby necklace shined on the black lace dress.

On February 6, Lee Na Young (이나영) attended the press conference of 'Howling (하울링)' held at CGV Wangshipri in Seongdong, Seoul.

Love those Prada shoes on Zhao Wei (赵薇). They are fantastic. However, Ivy Chen (陈意涵)'s shoe option was a little mismatched. What do you think?

Lee Na Young Is Stylish For Harper's Bazaar February 2012

The beautiful Lee Na Young (이나영) was photographed by Hong Jang Hyun for February's issue of Harper's Bazaar Korea. Interviewed by the magazine, she spoke about her role in 'Howling (하울링)', working with director Yoo Ha (유하) and actor Song Kang Ho (송강호), aspirations and expectations for her future.

The stylish star opted for a neon ensemble from pushBUTTON Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Holly Fulton necklace, JLYNCH waist belt, Giuseppe Zanotti snake-skin sculptured heels, patent gloves and polka dot tights to complete her quirky outfit.

It's interesting to see what the mix of accessories Hilary Tsui (徐濠萦) opts to wear in an outfit. The look was definitely over-accessorized with the patent gloves and polka dot tights. It may appeal to some of you but definitely not to me. What's your take?

Gong Hyo Jin & Ha Jung Woo For Vogue Korea February 2012
