Nine West F/W 2015 Collection Launch

Nine West FW '15

I don’t think I’ve ever met a woman (or even a man) that doesn’t like shoes. Me? Well, it’s no secret – I really REALLY like shoes! Actually, I LOOOVE shoes! Ok, fine….I’m a bit of a shoe-fanatic or more like shoe-obsessed! Put it this way, if you say ‘shoe-porn’, I’ll be there and I wanna be all up in that! Not in a nasty, foot-fetishy way or anything but ya know what I mean. When it comes to shoe brands and labels, I may not be an expert, but lets just say I know my way around the shoe department and I’m confident to say that I know my deets. So when one says Nine West, of course I know it! And to host their exclusive launch event? Yippee! Sounds good to me!! 🙂

Nine West FW '15Having been around since 1978 and in over 78 different countries, who doesn’t know Nine West? I always knew that the sophisticated ‘n chic woman’s shoe label offered a wide range of stylish sexy footwear and accessories, but now they’ve branched out even further and offer equally trendy threads for the modern woman.

Nine West FW '15The exclusive event was held at their Raffles City outlet in Singapore and to celebrate the launch of their new collection, there was a special fashion show presenting the six different lines for the season – Fusion, Snobby, The Poet, College, Clair Obscur and Victorian Folk.  I hosted the event in a cute little number from their “Snobby” line.

Each of the guests also had the opportunity to get a caricature done of themselves and have it put on their very own personalised mug by Adam, the caricature artist.

Champagne, cute clothes, hot shoes…..it was a great evening surrounded by fellow fashionistas. Congrats to Nine West for the launch of their Fall/Winter Collection and thank you for having me as your host for the special occasion. Also a big thank you to my manager, Wendy from Fly Entertainment for taking such good care of me that night.

KLARRA fashion spread

KLARRA

I was contacted to do a fashion spread and interview for the elegantly modern female clothing label – KLARRA, and I was delighted as I adored the style and feel that the brand portrayed. Knowing that KLARRA was the brainchild of Beatrice Tan, who I fondly remember meeting for the first time years ago at an event that I was hosting, I was even more excited to take part in the collaboration.KLARRA shoot

I had an absolute blast throughout the entire shoot as everyone was so lovely to work with. The gorgeous photos were shot by the talented Tawan Conchennet. I was beautified by the sweet Kazumi and of course styled by the mastermind of KLARRA,  Beatrice Tan

The Intimate Side of Cirque…..Le Noir!!!

Le-Noir-cirque Dancing, acting, jumping, bending and doing all sorts of things you’d never imagine a body could…..how could one not love Cirque Du Soleil?! I watched my first Cirque Du Soleil performance in Las Vegas a few years ago and it was AMAZING…..I was absolutely blown away!! It was called LOVE and the entire show was a tribute to the Beatles. So from that point on my standard for any Cirque or any similar type of performance was set very high. Since then I’ve seen a couple here and there, but as my standards were set so high, to my disappointment, they didn’t quite meet up to my expectations. Le Noir When the kind peeps from Base Entertainment extended the invite to the gala premiere of Le Noir I was a bit hesitant at first…..will it be good? Will I get disappointed?? Well, I’m the kinda girl that will give anything a try or a chance so thought why not? WOW! Am I glad I did!! Le Noir Le Noir Sexy, sensual, risqué, hilarious, romantic….the show had all the elements and more! From the moment I first sat down to the end, Le Noir kept me on the edge of my seat with anticipation. The entire show was filled with thrilling surprises and nonstop excitement. The stage set-up automatically set it apart from the norm. The stage was placed in the centre with seats surrounding all around it which added to the dramatic element.

Belle and Tulle Exclusive Trunk Show

wedding day

Pretty much every girl grows up dreaming of that magical day, that once in a lifetime moment, the day she walks down the aisle and devotes her love to that special person in her life…..her wedding day! The day when two soul mates unite, become one and commit to a life long journey together living happily ever after.  Of course it’s a memorable day for both the bride and the groom, but let’s face it……it’s just sooooo much more important for the bride. Hahaha! Every girl may be different and will have her own preferences but the day she gets married is her time to shine and have her very own princess, fairy tale moment. The most important part of the wedding day is, of course, THE dress!!!

Desigual Show at Audi Fashion Festival 2014

IMG_6949

Young, fun and vibrant is just a few words to describe the energetic show that Desigual put on during the Audi Fashion Festival this year. The Spanish casual clothing brand showed off flamboyant colours and vivid prints in their latest collection. Keeping in line with the brand’s image, the models strutted the runway with huge smiles and blowing kisses to the audience throughout the entire show.

I’m a big fan of colours and exploring different patterns and prints so I was excited when I was invited to the show and was asked to select my own personalised outfit for the event. When I went in to the shop I was debating on either wearing one of the many beautifully printed dresses or trying out something ‘different’…..Hey, spontanaity is what the brand is all about so what better time to try out my creative juices than now.  I decided on a pair of super comfy jeans-the ‘Concha Denim’ and thought to explore something different by transforming the bright Allegra scarf into a top. It was a challenge but a challenge I was willing to face….especially in the name of fashion! 🙂 I paired my Desigual ensemble with fuchsia Giuseppe Zanotti strapped pumps and added some bling to the look with the Ginger silver bag from White Moon.

It was definitely a fun filled event and I had a blast with fellow regional celebrities and fashionistas! Thank you to Jolene from Huntington Communications for arranging everything and Desigual for dressing me and for the invite!!! ❤

Oh, and many people asked and were wondering how I transformed the scarf into a top so if you’re curious, the video is down below! 😉

Hansel Show at Audi Fashion Festival 2014

hansel-logo_0

I remember briefly meeting the incredibly talented brainchild behind the whimsical female clothing brand Hansel, Jo Soh during the very early days of my television career when I interviewed her for a regional cable TV show I was hosting.  Although that was eons ago, the label was always imbedded in my head as I loved the fact how she named it after her family dog, Hansel. So being a fellow dog lover I was automatically drawn to the brand. Apart from sharing the love for pooches, I liked how Jo Soh designs for the confident, everyday woman. Hansel is minimalism with a retro touch and most importantly is all about looking stylish whilst still remaining comfortable.

When Jo Soh extended a personal invite to me for her show at this year’s Audi Fashion Festival I was stoked! I couldn’t wait to see what Hansel had in store this season as the label is known to always have a story or inspiration behind it.

IMG_1445

I dropped by her shop at Mandarin Gallery to try on pieces to wear to the show. When I arrived it’s like she read my mind and had preselected a few that were soooooo ‘me’. I loved each and every piece and it was so hard for me to make a final decision, but with the help from Jo Soh, herself, and the kind ladies at the shop I decided on the blue strappy trapeze dress from the “Hansel for Addy Lee” range that had a pop of sexy detail at the back.

IMG_1439

The Hansel show had to be the cutest I’ve ever seen…..the models playfully skipped down the runway taking photos with the audience. It was unpredictable, happy and fun….all of which describes the label.

This season’s inspiration is colourful fairy lights and as it goes for all Hansel collections, every piece complements the body and is wearable by any woman.

Huge congrats and a big big thank you to Jo Soh for dressing me and inviting me to the show. I had an absolute blast!! ❤

For my final look for the night, keeping with the playful yet sexy vibe of the dress, I wore gold strappy heels from Charlotte Olympia, small disco ball-esk earrings from Kate Spade and added a bit of bling with the sequins Ginger sling bag from White Moon.

X-Men Southeast Asia Gala Premiere

Ok, so when it comes to movies, I’m more of a romantic comedy kind of girl. Yah, some may be cheesy and predictable but at the end of the day I like how they give you that ‘feel good’ boost. If it’s an action flick then it has to have a captivating story line to really draw me in or keep my attention. I’m not going to sit and watch cars crashing, buildings blowing up and people bashing each other up for no reason…..just not my thing.  But then….there’s X-Men! That’s a WHOOOOLE other story! Ok ok, so I’ll admit the main reason I was even interested in the movie in the first place was probably because of Hugh Jackman, who I first watched in Swordfish. I watched the first of the X-Men series without much expectation, especially since I was never really into comics and had no idea about the storyline, but once I watched it, I was hooked! And Hugh Jackman bursting through his singlet throughout the entire movie, if not topless, may or may not have helped. Haha! Ladies…you know what I’m talking about! 😛

So not only have I been a HUGE fan of Hugh Jackman for the longest time, but I’ve also been a fan of the X-Men franchise since it first came out. So when I, along with a selected few other regional celebrities got the invite to the Southeast Asia gala premiere of the latest X-men blockbuster in Singapore, I was ecstatic!! Not only were we to watch the exclusive screening of the movie before the rest of the world, but we were to walk the very same ‘blue carpet’ that the cast would walk on. AHHHH!!! To top that off we were invited into the VIP area in which the cast including, Hugh Jackman, Peter Dinklage and Fan Bing Bing were to join to share a few words before the actual screening. O!M!G!….to say the least!

The screening was held at the Shaw House and all of outside and inside was packed up the wazoo with fans. Yah, we all knew they were there for the Hollywood stars, but the fans were so nice to show us some love as well as we walked down the blue carpet into the theatre. So here’s me sending huge hugs and kisses to you all!! 🙂

Yet again, the amazing folks from Running Into The Sun  did an awesome job in organising the entire gala event. BIG big thank you to each and everyone from the team for the invite and making my dream come true….I got to be in the same room as Hugh Jackman!!! Waaaah!! And of course it goes without saying, a gynormous thank you to my managers at Fly Entertainment for taking such good care of us during the event! Mmmmuacks! 🙂

Oh! One other thing….I finally got to wear my adorable botanical romper from Finder’s Keepers, which I picked up recently on my trip to Tokyo. ❤ Here’s a quick snippet of the event. **sorry for the quality guys, its the best I could do 😦

Watch out for X-Men Days Of Future Past in Cinemas May 22!!
