Ever wanted to be famous?!

Okiez, so I was so 'inspired' (and by inspired i mean i wanna copy their idea and make my own version of it :D) by refinery's guide on how to get a snapshot by the Sartorialist, that I decided to make my own 'how to' guide.

So my two favourite male bloggers are Bryanboy and Prince Pelayo from Katelovesme, and they're the two that were my inspirations for this guide. I know it may look complicated with lots of arrows and stuff at first, but calm down, follow it step by step, it'll all make sense.

Alrite, enough introduction, lemme present to you, my very first 'how to' guide:

i love you all!

It may be true that men look better with age ...

Certainly did work for this boy:

His name is Ryan Taylor. I can still remember back in 2007 when I bought Arena Homme Plus and he was in there with a 20-page editorial and my friend went 'OMG, he's cute as!' and I snapped 'you should feel pedophillic just saying that!':

Oh, and remember that Dior Homme safari jacket that caused such a craze back then? Oh how I miss 2007 ... Anyhoo, back to our boy Ryan Taylor, 2 years on and look at him now:

To the gurlies, start lining UURRPP! To all the gays, no he doesn't swing that way *sigh* lol.

Who says aging is bad eh?

I love you all!


If Carine Roitfeld had an Italian step-sister ...

She'll be in the form of Anne Dello Russo:

For those of you who dont know who she is (SHAME! :P), she used to be editor in chief for Uomo Vogue and is now looking after Vogue Nippon instead.

Gorgeous no? If Carine's the adventurous dangerously fierce sister, Anna's definitely the FLAMBOUYANT one :D. I love her and her work at Vogue Nippon.

My biggest wish right now is to have a girls lunch with Carine, Anna (Russo that is, not Wintour), Emmanuele and Melanie Huynh (because she's part Asian so i feel more connected lol). If that wish ever came true, I wonder who'd rock up with the tackiest outfit? One thing for sure I know who the one with fattest thighs and horrid tummy is ... *sigh*

I love you all!

what do you think of this?

Anja Rubik in the latest Gucci pre-fall video:

Love the bag, Anja's super duper hot, but doesn't the video remind you of the start of some cheesy Euro softcore porn movie?

Just a thought ...

This is why Vogue Italia remains my number one ...

Because they believe not only black models, but also Black Barbies deserve a cover. Below are images from the latest Vogue Italia Barbie issue:

Diana Ross is that chu?

Serena and Venus better werq those racquets!

Ms Bootylicious: (notice how the background says 'Barbie FUR fun' - such a tacky play on word, I LUV IT!)

Naomi for Vogue Russia:

Iman the African queen:

We are Destiny's Child!

Halle Berry in cat woman -meow!:

Sasha Fierce on stage- "a diva is a female version of a hustlah!"

AMAZING, i'm telling you. FRANCA SOZZANI is the motherf***ing fashion queen!

Now the question is: When will we have a Vogue Italia Asian issue?

Just a thought ...

I love you all!

SPLENDOUR conversation recap ...

Just had the BBEESSTT weekend in splendour. All the bands were amazing. Totally loved: Art vs Science, Bloc Party and Decoder Ring! Anyhoo, I'm not going to write a music review here, but write about all the silly/blonde things that Dee Ha said instead:

The night before driving to Byron Bay:

Dee Ha: Yay, it's so good we get to camp right at the festival. I wonder what the CABINs are like?
Friend: *silence for a few seconds* cabins? Don't you understand the meaning of CAMPING? We're sleeping in tents! You've told me you went camping in highschool!
Dee Ha: I did, but we stayed in cabins that had heaters and showers :D.
Friend: *sighs*

On the way to Byron Bay:
Friend: Did you remember to pack some essentials, like snacks and stuff?
Dee Ha: I didn't. I don't need any of that. I packed the most essential thing, my MOISTURIZER!
Friend: *rolls eyes*

Before Bob Evan's show:
Dee Ha: So who's Bob Evans? Is that a girl?
Friend: *sighs*

1am on Saturday night:
Dee Ha: *in Teddy bear pajamas and Ugg boots* I'm not asleep yet, let's go RRRAAAVVVIIINGGG at Tipi Forest
Friend: *points at Dee Ha's outfit* going in THAT OUTFIT?!
Dee Ha: *nods head then both walked off to Tipi Forest*

Besides all that, I had the best time!

I love Splendour!


Friday, July 24, 2009

That's right. I'm off to BYRON BAY for SPLENDOUR ! YAYAYAY! :D

I'm seriously crazy about those short sleeved double breasted blazers, and the feather tshirts!

I love you all!

my heart started aching ...

when i saw these studded men's shoes from the latest phillip lim's collection:

I much prefer the black version, as worn by no other than Mr Lim himself (who looked flawless as always):

Now I know I would never be able to lay hands on those babies, because there's no Phillip Lim menswear stockist in Australia :(. Why is God so unfair?! lol jk :D

I heart Phillip Lim!


Tuesday, July 21, 2009

She's made it!

MY GURLLLLLLIIEEE, SIGRID AGREN, has made her first Vogue cover and i'm sooo happy for her:

I can soo see her as the next Laetitia Casta!

Now when will Dee - Ha get her ... i mean ... his first Vogue cover?! WHEN?! lol jk :D

I love you all!


Another Z-lister trying to get some attention

Saw this on fashionspot today:


British model Agyness Deyn insists she has no interest in the industry that made her name, and won’t pursue a catwalk career forever. She said: “You know, even though I’m in fashion, I don’t, like, do fashion. Fashion isn’t me, even though I work in it. It’s just materialistic stuff. I just want to do whatever makes me happy.”

The blonde beauty also claims she has never admired anyone else in the fashion industry, looking to 1970's music for her style icons. "

YAWN YAWN YAWN. Fashion doesn't like you either, hun. You're so, like, 2003.

Now I know why ...

So i've always thought my tackiness came from watching too much Versace in the 90s growing up. Guess I was wrong, it's actually from my addiction to J-Pop! Amanda Lepores is nothing compared to this I'm telling you! Watch watch:

Gotta love the Japs!

I love you all!

contemplating a new haircut ...

so i've had the up-up-and-go / gone with the wind / dreamy james dean hair for a while now, it's natural to move on to something new and more refreshing.

To be honest I still love the hair style, even when my hardest attempt still can't make me look like Jon, but I'm getting so sick of how it's become the 'fashionista' hairstyle these days. To sum it up, every single fashion photo blog I've been to would have a photo of a guy with:

1. THAT hair

2. big clear way-farer spectacles even when his eyesight's 100 % normal, because you know, 'geeky chic' is IN

3. some ripped/ torn homeless man t-shirt

4. ball crushing tight black jeans with

5. dr marten combat boots which i LOATH

Yes yes, I'm looking at all of you. It's funny to look at the so called 'fashionista' community, which I don't think I'll ever be cool enough to be a part of, who pride themselves on being 'daring, different, eccentric, eclectic, etc etc' yet everyone ends up looking the same.

Anyhoo, back to the hair topic, after hours of hair pulling decision making (okiez fine, i'm exaggerating a bit but that's not the point :P), I'm finally leaning towards the 'put a big bowl on top of your head and follow its outline' haircut,as seen on no other than the comeback girl TAO OKAMOTO:

and on Ranya and Simon:

I know i know, you all are properly thinking I'm going insane. Don't worry, I've thought the same too. Truth is, this hair does remind me of way back when Mum refused to pay for my haircuts and decided to cut my hair instead, which ended up with me crying like an epileptic frog. Strangely enough, for me it's the most refreshing haircuts at the moment. May be I should pay Mum a visit very soon ...

Decision decision .... uhm ....

I could easily watch this all day ...

My favourite not-so-new-comer, DANNY SCHWARZ (sorry Marlon :P ):

I ... need ... to ... move ... to ... the ... UK ... fast ... !!!

I love you all!


How does this make you feel?

Lindsay Lohan in tacky Fornarina ad, which I unsurprisingly quite like:

then Lindsay Lohan in the latest Vogue Espana cover:

What's next? Miley Cyrus for Vogue US? Taylor Swift for Vogue Italia?

Sigh ...


dilemma dilemma

So I've had my eyes fixed on the Prada briefcase for a while now, and was pretty ready to go to the Prada store and just put all that longing frustrations behind and purchase the KLASSY baby:

then i stumbled across the new men's accessories collection on the balenciaga website. I DIED:

I KNOW I KNOW! that tomato red is TEE DEE EFF (tdf = to die for :P), and i'm loving the anthracite travel bag too. Most people don't know this, but I've been in love with motorcycle bag for ages, but it's a girl's bag you know, it's not even UNISEX and no, i refuse to be a fierce queen carrying little handbags around thank you very much :P. God (or Nicholas Ghesquiere) must have listened to me praying over the last few years, and yes, eventually brought out these babies ...

Now the dilemma is, which one should I get? ...

the untitled post ...

So i just finished reading the last two books of Harry Potter this week, and somehow that thought of our existential angst came back to me again. I know, you're properly thinking 'what the hell? from harry potter, really?!' but it's true, and I really don't know how it came around.

Have you ever wondered what your life's meaning is? ever wondered why you were born into this world, why you had a chance to experience it and why you'd eventually have to die? Almost a year has passed since I broke down and cried, for I was lost, confounded at the fact that I, after almost 21 years of existence, still didn't know what, or who I was living for. I still don't, and while I try not to hide it, that fear's still in me, as strong as ever. The past year have found me getting extremely frustrated at myself, for I spent more time thinking more about the future, about the end of me, then actually concentrated on the 'being', the now, the present.

Call it early midlife crisis if you like, but sometime I wonder, how, and when, will I be able to not fear death, to not fear my existence, or non existence, and just enjoy as it is. Diving myself into the thought of money, of status, of all the trivial things I could think of to cheer my mood up, I somehow knew deep inside it was still there, the fear, the frustration of knowing it and i'm still searching, almost sure I will never know it, the meaning of my life, or of life in general.

just a few random thoughts ...

Shakira's gone Gaga ...

So I saw this single cover today:

and I thought it was Angela Lindvall or Marissa Miller or something, until I realized it was SHAKIRA! Apparently she just releasesd a not-much-publicized new single called 'she wolf'. Listen below:

Ugh ... I'm not sure what to think. may be i'm still too attached to her old 'whenever wherever' days. She looks hot neverhteless in that Lady Gaga outfit.


So i'm like totally like addicted to this like new trashy new teenage show ...

I don't know what is with me and trashy NYC teenage shows. Maybe I was never the rich boy that had lots of sex and was invited to all the "cool" illegal high school parties, not that there were any way back :D. First was Gossip Girl, now there's this new show on bravoTV called 'NYC prep', which is a reality TV show which involves 16-18 year old UPPPER EAST SIDE teenage boys and girls buying 500 dollar skirts and sexing each other like there's no tomorrow. The sad thing is:

1. The cast is no where near as good looking as the ones on Gossip Girl.

2. They all look and talk like they're 12 years old, which makes the show look way much more pedophillic.

3. They're not close to being as rich or prestige as they all try to be, in fact most of the schools they go to arent the top schools in new york.

I guess watching the show does not necessarily make me wish I could go back to high school and be 'cool', but rather happy I'm eventually out of that stage where i constantly suffered from low self esteem, and the only thing that was on my mind was to prove to people I was 'something, someone', that I could be cool, and fit in.

Anyhoo, enough rambling, watch the show below:

Click on the video to follow the whole series through. It's painful to even go through the first 10 minutes I know, but hey it suits my tacky trashy taste just right :D.

I love you all!

What type of bride are you?

1. A CHANEL youthful chic girl (preferrably with Baptiste as your groom :P) ?

2.An ultra glam Elie Saab woman?

3. An uber flamboyant Lacroix Virgin (literally, jk :D) Mary ?

4. or a Givenchy Gothic Romantic edgy chick?

I want to know!


Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the fiercest of them all?

What happens when you throw 3 top Russian models into one campaign? FEROCIOUSNESS multiplies by 13573285723979 !! Below's the latest ad campaign by PHI:

Natasha, Sasha and Anna in one campaign, my tacky wetdream came true! :D I do admit the styling looks a bit 'hot tranny mess'-y but the girls can totally WERQ no? :D

I might just subscribe to Vogue Australia ....

So I'm one of those cheap asses that refuse to pay for magazines and would rather spend 5 hours at bookstores finishing mags after mags instead. Which is fair enough in my case, considering I'm so poor and imported fashion magazines cost a fortune in Australia, plus I read an average of 6-10 fashion magazines every week. It gets to the point that most of the Border staff know my face these days lol :D. Anyhoo, with that philosophy in mind, I've been able to resist all the marketing tactics most magazines have been using to tempt people to subscribe, until I saw this on Vogue Australia the other day:

"The birthday celebrations have already started at Vogue Australia and we're giving away a collector's edition Barbie when you subcribe or extend your subscription. Celebrate Vogue Australia's 50th anniversary by subscribing and Shopgirl Barbie is yours. We think she looks like a cross between Daphne Guiness, Cruella de Ville in her youth and a Parisienne Chanel addict. In short, she's chic."

OH EM GEE i'm telling you. Barbie doll version of my godmother Daphne (or so I wish) in Chanel carrying a chi hua hua?! That's the combination of my 4 most favourite-est things in the world!

I'm one click away from subscribing. I need a guardian angel to tell me NO ....

Damn Vogue Australia! lol


Just went to see this last night ...

i'll give his efforts a 6, and the movie a 2. It was just gross.

Couture stand out pieces ...

My temperature was still rising from men's fashion week fever, when couture week started kicking in and totally knocked me over. I love couture I really do, although I have to admit i hate the fact the word 'haute couture' is being overused these days. bloody hell, every single designer down the street has started calling their collections 'couture' and 'haute', while their clothes were mass produced in i-dunno-where and the fall apart after 3 days.

Anyhoo, with the much-toned-down couture season that just passed, there were still pieces that really stood out ( in both "i-need-to-marry-russian-millionaires" and "i'm-not-so-sure-what-to-say" ways) in my opinion. Belows the list:

1. the amazing gowns:

2. the perfect suits:

3. the lady gaga / sasha fierce outfits:

4. the accessories (especially the shoes at valentino!):

5. The FIERCE POSE: it's a tie between Natasha and Sasha!

I love couture!

Just when you think Marc Newson's done it all ....

So after furtinure, collaborations with Qantas, GStar and 10352975070 other projects he's laid hands on, you think our very own aussie homie Marc Newson would be ready to retire from exhaustion, he decided to collaborate with BOUCHERON! Oh damn, the boy has taste! Saw this on the Newyorktimes:

Here's its description:

"The one-of-a-kind “Julia” necklace, which is being introduced at a couture-week party in Paris tomorrow evening, was inspired by Newson’s obsession with fractals — geometric shapes that can be subdivided into smaller versions of themselves, specifically the Julia Sets of fractals discovered by Gaston Julia in the early 1900s. “Fractals are fascinating, complex and rich,” Newson says, “and gemstones really lend themselves to exploiting their beauty.” The scientifically-spawned sparkler contains around 2,000 paved stones and took the company’s craftspeople 1,500 hours to realize using rapid-prototyping technology and a minimal three-prong setting, so the stones appear to float on the wearer’s throat. One thing that won’t be floating, however, is the price tag. “I wasn’t thinking luxury at all, but the technical rigorousness of the piece, as well as the sheer number of stones that went into it will probably make this one of the most expensive necklaces Boucheron’s ever made.” "

I'm speechless I'm telling you. I dont think I've seen anything better. Wonder how much that would cost considering it's the most expensive piece by BOUCHERON!? 2421765846587659364 dollars?

I need my Russian royalty :( lol jk
