Designer Spotlight: Angelababy for b+ab

Hong Kong model Angelababy is now a fashion designer, creating a line for b+ab. In an interview, Angelababy mentions the inspiration for this line comes from her closet, a collection for the younger fashionistas featuring clothes that are sexy yet cute. It's like getting a taste of what Baby already has in her closet.
It looks like Baby is wearing a wig...on her feet! But I must say, the fur vest does compliment the lace dress quite nicely.

Photos from the b+ab fashion show:

Loving the knit jumper! and gray is definitely the new black this fall!

Everytime I see a red leather jacket I think of Michael Jackson..sigh..may he R.I.P.ok, just so we're clear, it's cool to wear wigs on other places than your head?
I think I'll skip on following this trend :P

Incheon Korean Music Wave Festival 2010

There was a lot of metallic and legs (and my TaeYang :-*) at the Incheon Korean Music Wave Festival yesterday as the best of the Hallyu performed at the annual event. After seeing all of these girls exposing their toned skinny legs made me not want to have ice cream today... lol

The ladies of After School wore marching band inspired tops and gold hotpants. I was more interested in the white peeptoe ankle boots with the chain detail!
The girls of KARA in sexy coordinating outfits and over the knee leather boots
The SNSD/Girl's Generation group kept it young and sporty in mini letterman jackets and short shorts.
Son Dambi performed 3 numbers in an overly ruffle top and a super short pleated skirt

Hurricane Boa rocked this sparkly gold and black outfit, leaving me to wonder where can I get that awesome blazer?!

Can't wait till they air this on Saturday! Which performance are you looking forward to the most?

Music Video Fashion: Taiwan

Although the clothes seen in most music videos aren't exactly the type of clothes you'd see on everyday people, they give us inspiration for our own styles and creativity to DIY. The Lady Gaga effect has taken over Asia as a lot of singers try to go over the top and make a statement in their music videos. Here are a few that caught my eye these past couple of weeks.

Always the risk taker Taiwanese singer Jolin Tsai features some unique outfit choices in her comeback this summer, including a Buzz Lightyear inspired costume that was heavily criticized by netizens.

Sammi Cheng in a paper dress for her return to the mandarin pop scene.
The girls from S.H.E sure know how to strike a pose in even the most offbeat outfits
Terry Kwan looked stunning and sparkly in a disco ball inspired dress for her "Beautiful Every Second" mv
Would you ever wear any of the outrageous clothes you see in music videos?

Fashion Trend in Asia: Harem Pants

I'm kind of on the fence about this fashion trend going on in Asia this past year. They remind me of the MC Hammer "Hammer Time" pants. They look unflattering if you aren't a size 0-4 and in some cases you look like you have a diaper on! But they do look super comfy in the jersey material. What do you think about this trend? Should it stay or should it go?

Hong Kong singer and actor Raymond Lam (ignore the hooker next to him lol)

HK TVB's Bosco Wong sporting the Denim Harem pants on the Super Trio Game Show
Actress Kristal Tin on the Super Trio Game Show
Actress Cecilia Cheung

My final vote: I think we should just burn all the denim ones.

Raid My Closet Saturdays

Hi! Decided to dedicate Saturdays to sharing what I've worn this past week. Unfortunetly I only managed to take one pic this wk... (too busy in the mornings and too tired after I get home) I'll try harder next week! Promise!

Calvin Klein button down shirt, BCBG skirt, Nine West shoes

The only bad thing about this skirt is at the end of the day, it's wrinklier than Joan Rivers. :(

Mr. Hong Kong 2010

When you're watching the Mr. Hong Kong competition this year don't just stare at the half nekkid men, don't forget to check out the dresses the female judges wore :P

The hosts for the show Mandy, Koni, DoDo, Christine and Ella. Christine's dress reminds me of Kristin Chenoweth's sparkly Emmy dress and I love the detail on Ella's gold metallic dress!
The gold/black dress on the far left is my favorite! I just love the color combo :)

Which dress did you like?

Drama Fashion: Beauty Knows No Pain

I've been watching a Hong Kong TVB drama called Beauty Knows No Pain, a show about the pain women experience in their lives and workplace. There is nonstop competition between these women in the workplace and for what? money? power? bragging rights? If I worked at a place like that, I think I would've quit before lunch time on the first day! lol Here's some of the office fashion that I couldn't help but oogle at while watching the drama unfold each episode:

Tried to find the white top that Chrissy in the Chatterbox requested, Do you see it here? :

I just realized that they wear a lot of dark colors on this show, perhaps the stylist was trying to convey the depressing atmosphere of working in an office with a queen bitch for a boss! Hopefully none of you have to deal with a devil at work ;)
