Orange Is The New Black

Posted By Sheila C on Jun 13, 2015 at 10:55AM

Orange Is The New Black. Cue: Did anyone catch Season 3 premiere last night? :)

One trend that really stood out at the S/S '15 presentations was Orange. This tangerine shade is making its presence felt in Spring/Summer 2015 as seen splashed across floral prints at Gucci or as a full-colour floor-grazing dress at Lucas Nascimento. 

This refreshing and energetic colour is taking the world and touted as one of this summer's essentials. Almost every major high-street fashion brand had to take this cue and incorporate this hue into their clothing.

Check out the amazingly bright colour below.

Song Ji Hyo's Classy Pictorial for February 2014 Issue of '1st Look' Magazine

Posted By Sheila C on Jan 20, 2014 at 4:52PM
In the February 2014 issue of "1st Look" fashion magazine, beautiful South-Korean actress, model and host Song Ji Hyo cuts a femme fatale image with her slim, gorgeous figure, seductive poses, and flawless styling and make-up. Looking absolutely breath-taking, she displays an innocent, feminine side of her that is nothing like the persona she portrays in hugely successful South-Korean variety show Running Man.</p>

Hong Kong Actress Niki Chow

Posted By Sheila C on Sep 24, 2013 at 5:03PM
I love my Hong Kong dramas. I just finished watching TVB thriller drama A Change of Heart (好心作怪) and my love and admiration for the 34-year-old main actress Niki Chow has since elevated. </p>
In the drama, she has numerous blazer changes. Blazer, oversized or not, she was able to wear it pretty well. Recently, I noticed that her off-screen style has evolved into a sophisticated, womanly one which quietly exudes elegance.

Niki Chow attended the 7th Asian Film Awards in a silk floor-length see-through dress with an underlay from the Roberto Cavalli from the Resort 2013 collection.</p>

She could possibly be underdressed for the event but who cares? The colour is gorgeous on her skin and I think we are able to look past the fact that she is a little bare on the accessorizing part.

On top of that, I managed to steal this photo from Niki's Facebook page with the beautiful Carina Lau. I love her floral-print A-line dress in here.

I wonder which designer it is?

Looking all radiant smiles at model sister Kathy Chow's wedding reception earlier this year, Niki Chow was bridesmaid in a white-and-pink dress with an embellished bodice, completed with marcel waves.


It was beautiful and sweet, like a pink wedding cake with white confetti. After that, she fulfilled her bridesmaid duty in a beautiful ethereal floor-length lilac gown.


Niki Chow poses with dashing A Change of Heart co-star Bosco Wong for an interview in a black shift dress with a faux leather hem. The gold tube necklace and gold-platformed heels were the perfect accent to this otherwise all-black ensemble.



Classy and elegant, enough said.

And next, one of my favourite outfits of her which I think is just so elegant and stylish.

She was invited to celebrate Hedgren's brand new store opening and she wore a black and nude body-con dress that accentuated her figure and tall frame. Skyscraping silver heels and a beautiful tribal-inspired necklace completed the look.

And she was in Singapore last month to promote her drama with Bosco Wong and she wore a casual look to accentuate her tall frame.

 Opting to go with a white blouse and skinny black leggings pants, Niki completed her look with silver heels and drew her hair into a ponytail. Fuss-free yet channelling the sophisticated, womanly image.

Overall, Niki's style is something I want to get inspiration from, not necessarily emulate.

Thank you for reading.

Lee Byung Hun & Lee Min Jung's Star-Studded Wedding

Posted By Sheila C on Aug 11, 2013 at 12:42PM
Hi, I'm back after a hiatus! I was greeted with a lovely sight on my phone this morning. </p>

Top South Korean movie star Lee Byung Hun and beautiful model-actress Lee Min Jung finally wedded in bliss yesterday 10 August 2013 6pm Korean Time at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Seoul with 900 guests which consisted of mostly top korean stars and the entertainment industry veterans. So obviously I have to write this today.

I find weddings mystical happenings where 2 people found each other and vowed to live the rest of their lives together. And I brim with envy as they walk down the aisle arm in arm, looking at each other with eyes full of love ... I am such a jealous kid, but I am so, so happy for the two of them!

Congratulations Lee Min Jung and Lee Byung Hun!

And like many others, I always keep my eyes peeled for that sensational wedding dress!

Lee Min Jung looked utterly radiant, in a lovely sheath wedding dress with a lace overlay. Her hair was drawn back into a low unassuming ponytail and accessorised with a similar floral-laced headband, giving a beautiful ethereal feel to the whole look. Lee Byung Hun was ever dapper in a perfectly tailored tuxedo suit with a traditional black bow tie.

For the actual ceremony, both switched attire and Lee Min Jung went with the dream princess gown. The lace-bodiced wedding dress and veil formed a long train behind. It was nothing unexpected or unpredictable, yet it was beautiful and unassuming, accentuated with Min Jung's bride-day beauty and radiance glowing from within.

Heartiest congratulations to the beautiful newly-wedded couple!

I believe they are in the Maldives right now for their honeymoon whichafter the G.I. Joe: Retaliation star will jet off to film his next movie and the Smile, You actress will select her next project.

Be sure to catch Lee Byung Hun at the cinemas as he also features in the Hollywood action comedy "Red 2" starring Bruce Willis.

The Givenchy "Antigona" Bag

Posted By Sheila C on Mar 19, 2013 at 10:22AM
Miranda Kerr loves her black medium smooth leather Antigona tote and brings it almost everywhere she goes. Olivia Palermo owns it in black crocodile skin and was seen carrying it during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Hilary Duff has it in cool beige.</p>

From the crisply folded logo detail to the hardware pieces on the shoulder strap, the Givenchy Antigona satchel exhibits the utmost precision.

  • Pebble goat leather with silvertone hardware.
  • Tote handles, 3 1/2" drop; flat, crossbody strap; 10" drop.
  • Zip top with tubular leather pull.
  • Envelope flap with Givenchy metal logo.
  • Inside, one zip pocket and two open pockets; fabric lining.
  • Long leather tabs protect base of bag.
  • 13" square x 8"D; weighs approx. 3lbs. 3oz.
  • Made in Italy.

The Givenchy Antigona bag has a recognizable shape and silhouette to it. With its sturdiness and durability, it is perfect for running errands; spacious, fits a hundred and one things and you can throw your stuff in without having to worry about it. It has also been touted as a must-have for supermodels as they often jet from one catwalk location to another.

Blazer Frenzy

Posted By Sheila C on Jan 7, 2013 at 5:15PM
I went a little crazy over blazers in the last week after stopping by my local Mango store because they were having a massive 50% discount period which only happens twice a year, one after the Spring/Summer collection, and another one after Fall/Winter.</p>

Thank you Mango for bringing back military style jackets.

And just last month, Miranda Kerr was unveiled as the new face of Mango. She replaces Kate Moss, so I was a little excited. Hope she lasts for a few seasons.


Miranda Kerr spotted grocery shopping at Whole Foods in Los Angeles on December 28, 2012

An easy job of picking up some groceries from the supermarket can be that difficult.

Miranda Kerr was in a bright yellow blazer from Stella McCartney with a white Rag & Bone ‘Majorca’ skirt and lovely blue top in Erdem's signature floral print. On this occasion, I was elated to see her navy blue Miu Miu push-lock shoulder bag which she has carried a few times.

Nude Celine pumps and Stella McCartney grey spotty tortoise shades completed her stylish look.

It feels as if the American paparazzi prowl the streets 24/7, which means having to dress up for the grocery store. No, actually she had a meeting at Sunset Tower Hotel before this (thanks to the papz). Nevertheless, by Miranda's standards, she would have dressed up a little even for a trip to the playground.

Thanks to the papz we have all these outfits from Miranda Kerr so I have no complaints.


Olivia Palermo attends the premiere of "Stand Up Guys" hosted by The Cinema Society with Chrysler and Bally at MOMA on December 9, 2012 in New York City

I saved this look for this blog post because I was certain that I would feature it somehow. Olivia Palermo attended a film premiere in this all-black ensemble which I really like. In fact, it is not boring for me at all as I was more interested in the asethetic details.

Her military style blazer/coat was paired with leather pants and some lady-like single strap heels which are really popular at the moment.

It doesn't really matter who is she wearing because her pieces are on-trend and lovely.


Olivia Palermo attends The Cinema Society & Grey Goose Host A Screening Of "Alex Cross" at Tribeca Grand Hotel on October 18, 2012

Colour-blocking blazers are all the rage now and Olivia Palermo is fashion-forward in this Tibi tuxedo jacket which she paired with Current/Elliott Rider legging jeans, gold clutch and accessories.

Deciding to go casual, she completed her look with these Zara silver brogues.



Olivia Palermo attends the front row for the Anya Hindmarch show on day 5 of London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013 on September 18, 2012

Spotted at Fashion Week, this gorgeous coloured blazer has military style buttons that I really like. Olivia Palermo colour-blocks to perfection with some bright yellow trousers and grey sweater.

Decided that I would get one in this year.


Kristen Stewart at the Teen Choice Awards on July 22, 2012

Kristen Stewart has had her fair share of fashion mistakes but she hit the right spot in this combo of fluid leather pants and a statement blazer from Roberto Cavalli’s Resort 2013 collection.

The blazer is totally hot.

That bed hair gives this look punk and attitude. Love this look from head to toe.


Jessica Alba spotted strolling in Los Angeles on a sunny day

Unlike fashion icons like Miranda Kerr and Olivia Palermo, Jessica Alba rarely smiles for the camera when she's not working in her job. But that does not keep us from loving her outfits because she is a street style darling. *makes a mental note to feature her style the next time*

Jessica Alba was spotted strolling LA wearing a Stylestalker floral tuxedo blazer on top of a white tee and electric-blue Current/Elliott tuxedo jeans. Black perforated sandals, a gray Tod's colorblock bag, and a bevy of classic jewellery completed her daytime cool.


Hope you enjoyed reading.

Style Update: Olivia Palermo

Posted By Sheila C on Dec 10, 2012 at 4:05PM
Here's a quick roundup of my favourite outfits from Olivia Palermo in the last one month or so.</p>

I'm always very happy and excited when she makes appearances on the streets, events or red capets.

Olivia Palermo seems to have a love for peacoats and leather pants lately as she has been wearing them a lot. Probably because the weather is turning cold at this time of the year.

But she shows that she's not one to sacrifice fashion for comfort as she continues to show us that ... Style is Eternal.

Olivia Palermo hailing a cab in Soho, New York City on December, 5, 2012

Looking as ever the socialite, Olivia Palermo was stunning in a very bright red Tibi peacoat with contrast brown leather panels which she teamed with skinny zipper jeans, revealing the Reiss "Belle" suede and pony hair multi-strap heels. She is carrying the lustworthy Givenchy "Antigona" bag which she owns in black crocodile skin.

A perfect winter look.

Olivia Palermo sighted in Madrid on November 23, 2012

<p>Opting for a rather earthy colour palette, Olivia Palermo was in browns and olive greens in the form of a brown plaid blazer paired with olive green jeans.
Around her neck is a CH HC infinity scarf. Footwear consists of black Report "Jude" boots and sunglasses are from Westward Leaning. On her arm is the beautiful Chloé "Alice" leather tote.</p>

This colour combo is suitable for a day when you are feeling low-key.

on November 22, 2012

With temperatures dropping, it was essential to keep warm as Olivia Palermo bundled up for a dog-walking session in a camel-coloured peacoat, the same brown infinity scarf and black knee-high boots.

Browns can be a tad boring sometimes but Olivia Palermo can brighten things up.

Olivia Palermo in New York on October 31, 2012

Sporting the same Vince Short Sleeve Poncho sweater she wore previously, Olivia Palermo wears a Svek Blue Cotton Classic shirt underneath. The sweater is sold out on barneys.com which I believe, is sparked by her. Some black Jil Sander leather flats and Ray-ban Wayfarers were added to her look. Arm candy is the Chloé "Alice" leather tote which she has carried on many occasions.

Olivia Palermo walks her dog in New York City

Wearing the same Current/Elliott Tuxedo "Rider" jeggings she wore to the Mulberry show during London Fashion Week, she shows us that you can wear a clothing multiple times for multiple occasions. We all need to take a leaf out of Olivia's style book.

She wears a black turtleneck sweater, sunglasses and her favourite Michael Kors link bracelet.

Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl sighted in Paris on October 16, 2012

A grey sweater which she has worn a few times was teamed with her all-time favourite skinny jeans, with a Tibi checked blazer over. The look was kept interesting via her burgundy Dior bag which is totally my favourite colour because you can wear it with almost any other colour without it being boring like black.

Olivia Palermo is a very relatable fashion icon because just like any one of us, she "recycles" her clothes by wearing them more than once. This is unlike many other actresses who basically wear their clothes no more than once.

I hope you enjoyed reading.

Red Carpet: Keira Knightley

Posted By Sheila C on Dec 9, 2012 at 12:34PM
Decided to KICKSTART the week by writing on a beautiful Keira Knightley.</p>

She's absolutely stunning. I actually first thought she was French because she possesses the confidence of French women who wear their clothes effortlessly.

 Dubbed The Pout, she has made headlines with her signature pursed lips, expertly parted, revealing a little bit of teeth between the gap. Unlike Angelina Jolie's which reminds me uncomfortably of having been bee-stung.


Keira Knightley

British actress


Best known for her role as Elizabeth Swann in the Pirates of the Carribean movie franchise

LOS ANGELES, CA - DECEMBER 06: Actress Keira Knightley attends TheWrap's Awards Season Screening Series of "Anna Karenina" on December 6, 2012

Although her outfit looks like it is hastily put together (in my opinion), it is actually a look from the Richard Nicoll Resort 2013 collection. Her grey sweater was paired with a beautiful woven jacquard skirt, while complementary grey sandals finishes the look.

Very fresh and pretty.

Even when she’s not making a huge effort, she still looks very good.

HOLLYWOOD, CA - NOVEMBER 14: Actress Keira Knightley attends the "Anna Karenina" Los Angeles Premiere held at ArcLight Hollywood on November 14, 2012

The face of Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle perfume, Keira Knightley was wearing Erdem Spring 2013. Her gown is custom made from its runway look.

The lovely green strapless gown was accented with blue lace embroidery.

Oh my gosh - she looks stunning. I died and became alive again.

And that pink lip, is like sweetness laid on a confetti cake.

NEW YORK, NY - NOVEMBER 07: Keira Knightley attends the "Anna Karenina" New York Special Screening at Florence Gould Hall on November 7, 2012

I swear I died inside again when I saw her here.

The sheer navy blue floral lace Valentino Fall 2012 Couture gown looks absolutely breathtaking on her.

Yes, she's wearing Valentino again but who cares? She looks stunning in those gowns.

The bold red lip colour, side-parted bun and pout made this look ten on ten.

TORONTO, ON - SEPTEMBER 07: Actress Keira Knightley attends the 'Anna Karenina' premiere during the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival

I have probably died a few times when it comes to Keira Knightley.

Oh, and there's one more designer brand that she looks absolutely amazing in. Elie Saab's ethereal gowns.

This heavily laced lace Elie Saab Fall 2012 Couture gown looks heavenly on her. The sheerness is done tastefully, creating a modern lady-like silhouette. Love that the belt accentuated the look.

She was totally made for this gown.

Hope you enjoyed her red carpet style as much as I do.
