Christian Dior Haute Couture 2014

I watched this video and was blown away by it. The setting, the people, the energy - Raf Simons has done it again. Just a beautifully done collection in an exclusive, very cool setting.

Now if this is one way to break into a new market, then Dior wins - hands down. Great work with his Spring-Summer 2014 Haute Couture show in Hong Kong, China.

New York, New York

Apologies for the delay in posting! I've been away in New York, adventuring away. It was one of the best weeks I could ever ask for. From Magnolia Bakery to Central Park or just walking at night in the city - it was a great way to experience the city again.

I love this city. The energy, the people, the experiences, the conversations you can strike up with strangers. Not to mention, the fashion, the style, the sophistication and the glamour.

New York is really a city of its' own.  I will never not be a New York girl. 


Amanda Murphy for WSJ Magazine

Amanda Murphy has this amazing rawness to her look that makes it both novel and captivating at the same time. I came across this editorial in WSJ Magazine, photographed by Josh Olins. 

Sometimes, we obsess so much over makeup and being overdone. But sometimes, we also need to remember that raw beauty also counts (if not, even more). 

Amazing photography work. Well done.

Right on the Met: the Met Gala 2014

At Vogue's Met Gala, 2014, there were all sorts of crazy, fabulous and over-the-top looks. Amongst all the glamour and volume were two dresses that were simple, classic, draped in clean lines and chic. Meet Diane Kruger in Hugo Boss and Kate Bosworth in Stella McCartney above. 

They look amazing. My personal style motto goes: it's always chic to be more understated. As the saying goes, wear your dress but don't let your dress wear you. 

Angelina Jolie + Hedi Slimane

Angelina Jolie in Saint Laurent? Basically, what perfection basically looks like. At first, I wasn't really a big fan of Hedi Slimane's Saint Laurent, but he certainty knows how to tailor for the female form, and will make anyone look amazing. 

Huge fan of this cover - it's beyond perfect. 

Dior Cruise 2015 - Brooklyn, New York

Raf Simons simply knocked it down at the Dior Cruise 2015 show. The overall collection was beautiful, and you could see his non-minimal side come out in a few pieces. But if there were two pieces that were standouts, it had to be these two. You've done it again Simons, you've done it again.

Also, note the Dior boat taxi popping up everywhere on instagram. Wouldn't mind transporting myself on Dior, if I do say so myself.
