Fashion me the mother nature way pls:)

Living in a busy city like Hong Kong definitely has its perks of a fun and exciting life style, and at the same time it also makes  me suddenly miss mother nature oh soooo much!!! I guess i’ve just been tired of the city lately and need to go to a hidden secret garden where nobody can find me,hehe. Anyway, i found these beautiful photo shots that demonstrates exactly the real beauty of combining mother nature and fashion:) I really loveee how the sunshine beams down where it creates this calm and soothing effect.

The “Sex and the City 2″ ladies glam it up at the NYC premiere

Okay, so i havent seen SATC 2 yet but i couldnt stop but notice all these photos online of the four lovely ladies looking glammed up at their premieres. I have to say, they all looked absolutely stunning for the Sex and the City 2 world premiere night in New York City. They can never do it wrong, can they!?!!? I love how they carried different color tones for their dresses and all of them stood out.  If you ask me, i actually think SJP was one of the girls with the best outfits! The neon yellow is so fresh, bright, and stylish. Kim Cattrall was my least favorite. I mean, she looked glamorous but there was something about the color and pattern of her dress  that didnt really do it for me. What do you think?

As always, SJP draws attention on the red carpet and this time was no exception, with her eye catching yellow Valentino gown from the  Spring 2010 Couture collection . And the one sided off the shoulder strap was  soooo sexy yet still elegant. She really knows how to work it on the red carpet and she certainly knows how to get all the attention when she wants to!   

Kristin Davis looked so elegant and cute in this pink vintage frock by Jean Desses. I think it really suits her and shows off this girly but still sexy side to her.

Cynthia Nixon played it safe by going black and wore a classic looking Carolina Herrera gown. Its a safe color choice that still manages to carry the glamor factor. I really like this classic look and and how she added a diamond leaf brooch to give it that finished touch.

Kim Cattrall wore a glittery gown by Naeem Khan and i really think it didnt do much for her. It was still glamourous looking but i just didnt think much of it.  But i gotta give her credit for that plunging neckline of hers, which managed to carry some sex appeal  along with sophistication thrown in it.

What do you girls think? What was your favorite pick!?!? Or least favorite? lol and while we’re at it, what did you think of the movie? :)

Be my twin pretttieee please????

You ever wondered what it would be like if you had a twin sister while growing up as a young girl, and just imagined all the girly stuff you could do together? Well, as a young kid, i was usually home alone with my cousin trying on my mom’s make up (think Lancome red matte lipstick and rainbow colored eyeshadows,lol) and any of her heels that we could find, and strutted a mini catwalk in my living room. Yes, i started to enjoy glamming up at a very young age i just realized. But it was truly fun doing all the dress up,hair,make up and the occasional role play of housewife,  where we ate our home made liver pate sandwich.  

So my question to you ladies out there,  you reckon you would want a twin sister of the exact same age,size,and fashion interest?? Not  a bad thought eh? Dont get me wrong, I actually have a lovely older sister who i love to bits and pieces  but we just share none of the 3 factors mentioned previously,lol. Anyways, i just thought it be a fun idea to ponder on for a stress free Saturday afternoon.

The photos below were taken from the Vogue Nippon  June 2010 issue titled “Just the Two of Us” and indeed it is! I wouldn’t mind holding a doggie, eating stawberries, or hugging a gigantic bottle of Chanel No. 5, in twin sister style. Twinhood never looked this beautiful, wouldn’t you agree?;)

Lady Gaga in Tokyo for MAC Viva Glam Launch

As always, Lady Gaga will never fail to impress us when it comes to a grand entrance appearance, and the same went for the recent Aids Fund launch by MAC Viva Glam, which she appeared at in Tokyo. She was spotted in an entire white ruffled body suit/dress kinda thing and it really got me thinking if her quirky outfits could get any more odd. But i still give her credits for stepping out of the boundaries in creativity and her numerous come backs to surprise us each and every time. It’s clearly not an easy task to start or sustain so great job for now Gaga! Despite her fashion chaos, i still somehow find it in my heart to appreciate her music, and the song Speechless presented at the beginning of the event was just awesome!

Sunday Photo – No better things in life than Chanel

Lately i noticed that  many of the fashionista bloggers out there seems to be carrying a trend of having themed titles for their blog entrees and i thought, what a great and fun idea! So for the first time ever since i started blogging here, im going to start my Sundays as a “Photos only” blog entree:) And i’ve always agreed with the saying that pictures speak more than words.  Of course, there will be exceptions on certain Sundays where there are some “must know” stuffs that i just have to die and share with you all!!!!  Sharing is caring right? hehe. For now, im leaving you all  with some fabulous photos by Chanel.

P.S. Enjoy the rest of your weekend ladies:)

Who stole the front cover the best on Glamour?

I was planning to do a “photo only” blog post today due to my laziness but who am i kidding? I just couldnt help but share a lil something that i found absolutely absurd and impossible. The thing is, i just realized outta the blue that i havent bought a fashion magazine for a few months and yes, thats almost a sinner eh?! So i took things into my own hands and immediately dashed to the nearest Dymocks to grab my fav Glamour. I meant to look for the UK edition but for a change, i decided to go for the US edition:) Interestingly, i discovered there were actually not just 1 or 2, but 3 covers with 3 different celebs for the April 2010 issue! I ended up getting the cover with Amanda Seyfried as it was the only one they had. The other 2 gorgeous beauties were Zoë Saldana and Leighton Meester. Here are their stunning front covers and one page spread photos!

 

 

I really think Amanda looks like a total sex bomb compared to her Mamma Mia days, and its liberating to know that its no biggie to look innocent and have sex appeal at the same time. Or would that be considered 2 faced? My second fav is Zoe because she just looks so sassy and there’s something classy yet chic about her apperance.  The black tight fitted suit fits her slim body like a glove and the revealing chest line is ever so sexy! Think she aint wearing a bra either? Im not a big fan of Leighton but she still looks fab in this issue so i gotta give her the credits or the whole cast who were behind this shot? lol…. But the question still remains, who do you think wore it best? Who nailed it to become Glamour’s hottest chic on the front cover April 2010 issue? For me, i give my salute to Amanda Seyfried for such a great transformation that is similar to a modernized version of Cinderella. 

And i’ll try using the remaining hours of my Sunday afternoon to spend it lazily in glamour style!! Wooohooo!!!!!!!!!!!! :) Think eating choco chip cookies infront of the telly wearing my super sexy H&M  black tube dress and my new black pumps!!!! hahaha. Not exactly my definition of comfy tho….

Glamming it up at the Oscar

This year on March 7th  marked another special day in the calender for all the glamourous ladies  in America. Thats right, it was yet another time for the lovely Hollywood stars to show off their glits and glam for the 82nd Oscar and may i add, they never fail to impress us with their glamorous dresses!!! At the same time, some were just clearly victims waiting to be sighted by the fashion police,hehe.  

  

Rachel McAdams in Elie Saab  

 Of course my all time fav Rachel McAdams stays on top of my list for best outfit  because she is the definition of pure beauty, to me anyway. This dress has a dreamy effect to the eye where it carries alot of movement due to the different color toned flowers. Although this pale color isnt the ideal choice for an occasion like this, she still manages to pull it off gracefully. Way to go Rach!!!! :)    

  

Sandra Bullock in  Marchesa  

Sandra is one of the actresses out there that i truly admire and this year she did an excellent job arriving to the oscars in a  goldish silky gown, which was partially embedded with transparent flowers. And yes, she certainly deserved a nomination for best actress for “The Blind Side”!!!! 

 

Demi Moore in Versace 

What can i say? she doesnt age a day or year!!! I totally love the peachy color and i think it matches her skin tone super well. I like how her dress is so skin tight fitting on the top and gradually spreads out into layers of ruffles that is not too over the top. Its just oh sooo simple and elegant.  

  

Elizabeth Banks in Versace 

This dress was pretty much like any ball room dress but there was something about the color that just made me say “OMG, so pretty!!!”. Not one of my fav but definitely is a winner amongst the crowd.  

Miley Cyrus in Jenny Packham

This was one of my most surprised appearances on the red carpet. I’ve never seen Miley  as sophisticated as this and truth be told, she suits it!!! This look suits her much more than the poppy rock chic image she normally displays out in public. 

  

Anna Kendrick in Elie Saab

This is one of the dresses that i like to label as “goddess dress”. The light pink/peachy color creates this calm and pure look to it, where the escalating drapery layering of the dress reminds me of the Greek goddeses, lol.

    

Kristen Stewart in Monique Lhuillier

It is great to FINALLY see the Twilight beauty “Bella” dressing up like a lady.  This dark blue gown just totally compliments her figure and wraps around at the right places. Most of all,  i love how the train of the dress is so dramatic but still isnt out of proportion. No more jeans with tees and converse shoes girl!!! This is what i like to see more of in the future Kristen!
