Award Show Fashion: 48th Golden Horse Awards

Over the weekend, Taiwan held the 48th Golden Horse Awards, their version of the Oscars. And the ladies dressed just as fashionable as their Hollywood counterparts. I must say these ladies are a bit more modest about showing their cleave than some of the HK celebs...

Tang Wei looked more like princess than that Kate girl in this light pink Valentino from the Resort 2012 collection.  Wei has never disappointed me before in her red carpet outfits, let's hope she continues to 'wow' us!
Ella Chen looked ultra femme in a pleated charcoal Andrew Gn dress from F/W 2011. I am always shocked when she wears dresses because I'm so used to seeing her as a tomboy.
Vivian Hsu is always one to beat on the red carpet, she showed up in a sequined Salvatore Ferragamo featuring a v-neck and a high slit. She always gets the best dresses and sponsored the nicest bling!
Carina Lau wore a form fitting gradient Atelier Versace gown from S/S 2011, working it like a true diva
Angelica Lee was a vixen in this body hugging strapless red satin dress
 Aoi Miyazaki beaded dress seemed a bit overwhelming for her thin frame
Hao Lei picked a Fan Qi Hui original design, she just needed some neck bling to make a simple look stand out more, otherwise it's a great teal color.
Jiang Wenli wore a Naeem Khan floral embroidered black dress that was both age appropriate and chic
Kara Hui chose a stand out chartreuse dress with tiered chiffon ruffles
Bowie Tseng also opted for a strapless chartreuse colored gown but with a jewel encrusted sweetheart neckline, I must say it looks a bit ill fitting in the bust area
Pink Yang wore a dress by Shiatzy Chen, I like the peep of ivory colored ruffles under the sheer black fabric
Qin Hailu tulle dress was not a favorite of mine, the puff sleeve looked to '80's prom for me 
Michelle Chen opted for a blush dress with rosettes and petals strewn about, it was both youthful and sweet
Tanaka Chie kept it simple and classy in a maroon Xia Zi Li original
Shu Qi in Giorgio Armani; looks like she's a clown on stilts with these large flared bell bottoms, instead of elongating her legs it just swallowed them up. I did however like the blazer which was actually backless
Rene Liu wore a white Lanvin that was just tragic...it was frumpy, shapeless and made her look like a paper towel roll

Fashion at HK TVB's 45th Anniversary

The ladies of TVB really brought out their best poses and 'chok' (the act of looking cool and sexy on purpose) looks for the Anniversary party this year. 

Myolie Wu won my vote for best dressed of the night in this white dress featuring a plunging neckline. Paired with the right amount of bling and a bright red lip, Myolie was ready to party.
The gorgeous Fala Chen showed up in a back revealing Roberto Cavalli gown. The poor girl is currently suffering from facial paralysis right when her career is taking off :( I really hope she recovers.
Kate Tsui did not pick a good dress, it wasn't figure flattering and looked like a crinkled mess, she did however pick a great piece of arm candy with Raymond Lam ;) 
Natalie Tong's peach dress was sweet in color and sexy in slit, sadly she didn't put as much effort into her hairstyle
Janet Chow looked effortlessly like a princess in this jewel encrusted strapless dress and diamonds dripping off her ears and neck
The couple to talk about: Moses Chan and Aimee Chan appeared together in matching black outfits
Dodo Cheng opted to cover her shoulders this year with a shiny printed caplet over this simple red dress
Jess Sum shows off her sponsored jewels in this deep red dress with a sweetheart neckline
Nancy Wu was another TVB 'fa dan" who decided that white would compliment her gorgeous diamond necklace
Samantha Ko went with a more reserved dress this time around to keep the focus on her million dollar jewels
Sharon Chan wasn't afraid to show a little leg (and apparently some undergarment) in this high slit 
Tavia Yeung's outfit and little hat really disappointed me this time around, the dress was unflattering and aged her a little
Vivien Yeo went a different route from everyone else and opted for a taupe colored v-neck gown
TV host Astrid Chan showed up to the red carpet in a bright fuchsia dress, it looked a bit prom to me, maybe because my prom dress was the same color....  

I would literally freak out if I got to wear over a million dollars worth of jewels..and be super paranoid that I would lose them! 

Which dress caught your eye?

Fashionable Asians in Versace for H&M

Who's excited for the Versace for H&M collection to hit stores this weekend? Celebrities from all over the world have already been seen in the affordable designer dresses and I have compiled a collection of Asian celebrities wearing the best of Versace for H&M.
Fan Bing Bing in my favorite dress from the collection. It just has an Oriental flair to it with the fans and florals. Some people disliked the green tights but I think it makes the look stand out more.
 Lee Fei Er in the same dress as Bing Bing sans the tights and wig but added a large statement choker necklace
 Actress Fann Wong was one of the first Asian celebs to don a dress from the limited edition collab, she showed up to an event last month in the studded faux leather dress
 Huang Yi attended the Elle Style Awards in the studded pleather jacket and shiny graphic dress
 Wonder Girls' Hye Lim performed with her group in this glittering piece from the collection
 Su Yan models the fringe loving printed hearts dress
Afterschool's Uee appeared in Vogue Korea wearing most of the Versace for H&M collection.

Looking at the price points, I can only afford to buy the accessories if I still want to buy groceries for the month -_- My love for fashion can get so expensive sometimes.  The collection may be considered affordable to girls who only eat salads for all three meals, but not for a food loving gal like me! But I'm still excited to check out the collection in person this Saturday.
Do you guys think this collection is worth lining up for?
