Christmas at Pavilion Mall, Kuala Lumpur



So we were in Kuala Lumpur which was full of Christmas cheer in the shopping malls last week. If you have not visited Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia, you are missing out on the endless possibilities of retail therapy. Besides shopping, the city boosts and eclectic mix of ultra urban malls and skyscrapers in contrast to the squalid conditions of old roads and ultra polluted smog-filled sidewalks due to hundreds and thousands of cars, bikes, buses and trucks jam packed in one huge traffic congestion. Tip: Don't forget to bring an N95 or N100 mask and drink plenty of water to flush out the pollution and keep lung cancer at bay.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Lindsay Lohan brings back her favourite leggings as pants style as she pairs her leggings with a slinky black silk top cinched at the waist and high-heel military boots.

She looks effortlessly cool and chic with minimal accessories with her newly dyed honey blond locks in loosely tousled curls. Her bright pink lipstick instead of the usual bright red one most ladies would opt for when wearing an all black ensemble, added a refreshing youthful look to her overall image.

Separated at Birth: Miley Cyrus & Anna Wintour

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Last night at a Christmas concert, Miley Cyrus surprised all her fans and haters with a new hairstyle. Not that a new hairstyle was surprising as celebrities are known to draw attention for a "brand new image change". 

What was surprising was Miley Cyrus modelling her new bad hairdo from editor-in-chief of American Vogue magazine, Anna Wintour or perhaps bad hair inspired by Korean pop stars - blunt fringe that could only look cute on mostly 7-year-old children.

Star Style: Beyonce in Christopher Kane FW13

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Who says you need to be vegan to wear fur? Beyonce is cleverly opting for the cheaper menu as she knows she needs to save up for rainy days. Besides that, you can love vegetables and hate animals too. You can also hate animals in different ways such as refusing to put their flesh and organs into your body but wear their dead skin as a trophy to show everyone how you really feel about animals.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Beyonce wears a Christopher Kane blue military camo print jacket from the Fall Winter 2013 runway collection that has a warm and cosy fox fur trim on the collar.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
More runway jackets we love from the Christopher Kane fall collection include this denim patchwork in military camo style jacket.

A full fox fur jacket in natural brown is paired with a contrasting camo print skirt. 

Style tip: To balance over-sized fur coats and jackets, pair your combination with leggings, slim pants or mini skirts.

Go super casual, rock & roll with this easy dressing tip - wear an over-sized T as a top. Make sure you pick a T-shirt with a good design. Throw on some boots, I picked mine in a mustard yellow fall winter undertone and a suede satchel in my favorite colour of the season - bright, sunny yellow.

Item list:
  • Leopard print sleeve raglan long-sleeve T-shirt from Denim & Supply by Ralph Lauren
  • Yellow back to school satchel by Barbara Bui
  • Mustard suede ankle boots by Bershka

Bonus tip: If you're not too liberal, throw on a micro-mini shorts underneath or a pair of sheer tights and you'll rock this look comfortably.

British Fashion Awards (BFA) 2013 Best Dressed

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley stole the limelight on the red carpet at the British Fashion Awards 2013 in a striking red two piece suit from Antonio Beradi's Spring Summer 2014 runway show that resembled a camouflaged blazer and shorts paired with over-the-knee thigh high boots.

We have to say what a clever design this is.

Fall Winter 2013 Trend: Sheer, Sexy, See-Through, Micro-Mini

We continue our weekly countdown to the Top 5 biggest Fall Winter 2013 fashion trends straight from the runway.

Fall Winter 2013 Top 5 Fashion Trends from the Runway
Week #3 : Maximum Exposure


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
This fall winter, Burberry Prorsum brings a hot spring summer trend with a little twist on the fall winter 2013 runway show - underwear as pants with a see-through below the knee skirt.

Some celebrities have been seen rocking this trend on the red carpet but beware if you have bigger hips and shorter legs as all the attention on this lingerie inspired number would go to your waistline, hips and upper thighs.

Julien MacDonald and Marios Schwab go for the strategic placement of graphic patterns or designs that prevent that still manages to preserve the modesty of women who would dare to wear these irresistibly sexy dresses that show off the entire figure.

Saint Laurent's Fall 2013 runway collection had plenty of sexy fishnet and lace mesh detail tops, dresses and jumpsuits.

Other designers like Phillip Plein, Michael Lo Sordo and Nicole Miller had plenty of flesh to display with their see-through skirts, shirts and dramatic top to toe fetish zip dress.

Full on lace: Todd Lynn and Valentin Yudashkin used intricate lace designs to create a natural but eerily beautiful feel to bridal dresses and evening wear.

We saved the best for the last. Our top two favourites from the Fall winter Trend #3 Maximum Exposure has got to be Versace's patent leather double high split skirt worn with a bejewelled harness and Zadig & Voltaire's micro-mini red tweed shorts with eagle embroidery which makes a nice contrast to long wool coats and bulky winter wear especially when paired with over-the-knee boots.

American Music Awards 2013 Fashion Winners & Losers

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
British boy band One Direction looked as dull and drab as an English summer day in grey and black suits and shirts. One might wonder why Korean boy bands are more popular than Western ones these days.
Hint: Koreans have better fashion stylists.

Kesha makes a bold statement on the American Music Awards 2013 red carpet in a sexy thigh high split black dress with dramatic ruffles. She still manages to keep her funky image intact with her newly dyed rainbow hair.

The girl on the left looks like her skirt is too tight and her top and dress would be more "Mermaid World" than red carpet worthy. The girl on the left tries to hard to squeeze into her daughter's punk rock biker outfit and fails miserably. The house-help hairdo doesn't help either.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It's tough for girl groups nowadays to stand out from the crowd. Here is a girl band attempting to look as if they each have a different personality but the tragic truth is that is a tough image to built especially when all their clothes look like they came from the same store - Marks & Spencer.


Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Lady Gaga looks too athletic for a tiny runway dress from Versace as her breasts and arms look like they're ready to pop the dress. Her new "Rapunzel, Rapunzel let down your hair image" seems to go against her usual wacky sense of style and zany personality. We can only blame the Versace sponsorship for making Gaga look out of place.

It's surprising how Kelly Osbourne can don 87-year-old Queen Elizabeth's dress and still look evil whenever she smiles. Perhaps it's just the dress associated with monarchy.

Top Tip #1: Fashion No-No - never stand next to Nicole Richie unless you are as thin as a rid or a Victoria's Secret supermodel. Otherwise you'll definitely look f*t.

Rihanna looked hot on the AMA 2013 red carpet in an on-trend sequin bra top and high waist sheer maxi skirt. However, when she performed on stage, her flapping sting ray dress which looked perfect for Sleeping Beauty's Evil Queen Malificent, looked unflattering and out of place.

Emma Roberts wore a reflective garbage bag or body bag depending on your perspective to the AMA 2013 red carpet. Is this Lanvin?

Christina Aguilera had lost weight but not the ugly orange tanner addiction.

Katy Perry loves looking like an eccentric old British lady with badly permed hair that looks more damaged than Cheveux du jour. Even Helena Bonham Carter has better hair than Katy Perry.

Taylor Swift totally rocked a gold sequin mini dress by Julien MacDonald. The leggy 1.77m blonde took home four awards yesterday night. Ariana Grande looks saccharine sweet with the best hair style especially for her age. The 20-year-old matched her cute hairdo with a floor length red sequin sweetheart neckline evening gown.

Virginal in white: Miley Cyrus and Kendall Jenner looked radiant in all-over white. Miley took the plunge with a deep neck blazer and Kendall opted for a sexy cut-out dress that made her look Amazonian kudos to her model height and lanky figure.
