AND THE GOLDEN GLOBE GOES TO…

Oh thank goodness. There is some good left in this crazy world.

Ok, maybe that was a little dramatic but you know what I mean – there were actually some spectacularly beautiful gowns on the Golden Globes red carpet this year. If you haven’t seen my worst dressed list, you can check it out here , and trust me there are some catastrophes. But I can always count on a handful of celebs to brighten my day and remind me that actually, fashion is fantastic and when done right, it can give you all the feels.

You might not agree with me on some of these; in fact you might think I’ve lost my marbles. But that’s the best thing about this sartorial spiral – it is completely subjective. You like what you like and what you don’t is not for anyone else to judge. The power lies in your ability to wear your clothes with conviction. Even if you change your mind down the line, the key is to own it. That’s all.

So here we go, my best dressed and absolute favourite looks from the 2016 Golden Globes.

rosie-huntington-whiteley-golden-globes-2016
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley could wear a potato sack on the red carpet and look exquisite, but honestly this dress is just so beautiful. THIS is how to wear a dress from the neutral colour palette and win. the fit is flawless, her hair and makeup is clean but youthful and the gold shimmer means she is literally glowing. plus she wore the best accessory – a sparkly new engagement ring from Jason Statham.

rosie-h-w

brie-larson-golden-globes-2016 CALVIN KLEIN
when you look like a Golden Globe, how could Brie Larson not be a best dressed? plus those abs, I can’t.
kate-hudson-golden-globes-2016 MICHAEL KORS
at first I thought this Atelier Versace was a little much (as in a little less), but Kate Hudson looks INCREDIBLE and like she holds so much of her own strength and power. I love it. the colour of the dress, the fit like a teeny tiny sequined glove, the abs, the hair. nailed it.
taraji-henson-golden-globes-2016 STELLA
YASSSSSSSS. Taraji P. Henson you sexbomb! this dress is so perfectly fitted and shows off her incredible body (how much for those arms?). the bag is killer and I love her kind of messy/edgy hair for such a simple and elegant dress. plus it is a total 180 from last year’s vampy black look which was also a top pick. go Cookie, go!

MTM1Nzc0NDkyMzE1MTQyMTU0

eva-longoria-2-golden-globes-2016
I absolutely loved this. it is so not Golden Globes but Eva Longoria kills it. I love the floral accents and the cap sleeve on her (which I usually hate but hello Eva Longoria).

eva-longoria

alicia-vikander-golden-globes-2016
the current face of Louis Vuitton in Louis Vuitton and she looks like an angel sent from heaven – with a cheeky little nod to sex appeal from the back. beautiful.

this is sensational. the dress is a LOT to deal with, which is why Ms. Channing Tatum did so well to keep the rest of her look simple; from hair and make-up to her minimal accessories.
zendaya-drupal_0
another BIG dress on an incredibly petite woman; but Zendaya looks PHENOM in this. well, well done young lady.

olivia-wilde-golden-globes-2016 MICHAEL KORS
sorry but didn’t you just have a baby, Olivia Wilde?
kate-bosworth-2-golden-globes-2016 DOLCE
one of my top looks from the night – Kate Bosworth in this sensational Dolce & Gabbana piece of masterful art.
cate-blanchett-golden-globes-2016 GIVENCHY
Cate Blanchett is made for Givenchy and the fact that they have maintained this clearly symbiotic relationship through the fashion house’s different creative spells and directors is testament to Cate’s unequivocal match to their brand. OBSESSED.

ok. so I cannot stand Jennifer Lawrence and I am always dismally underwhelmed by her (contractual) Dior choices on the red carpet. but this red cut-out, 3D creation is PERFECTION. and I am a firm believer in giving credit where credit is due (even though I hate her Hillary Clinton hair). this might even be one of my favourite dresses from this year’s awards.

And as always, some deliciously dapper gentleman…

GOLDEN GLOBES 2016: WOMP WOMP

Oops, they did it again.

“New Year, New Me” clearly has not managed to infiltrate the stylist circle of Hollywood because the 2016 Golden Globes red carpet just killed me. The awards took place on Sunday (Sunday Not-So-Funday after watching these hideous frocks gallivant down the carpet) and as usual, I was disappointed. What is going on over there? Is there something in the ever-decreasing California water that has caused the disastrous style movement of wearing boring, been-there-worn-that pieces? Dejavu is no fun when what you’re seeing is a bunch of rubbish.

But all for a good cause – a Haute Hoodlum red carpet rant. The first of the year, nogal!

So sit back and get ready to start throwing your popcorn at the screen. Oh no wait, that’s not what this is…

rs_634x1024-160110172035-634.Hannah-Bagshawe-Eddie-Redmayne-Golden-Globes.ms.011016
this is like a knife to the heart. firstly, anyone who knows me knows how much I adore Eddie Redmayne and his style aesthetic. He has fun with fashion and effortlessly strays from the traditional path of a black and white tux. But his best accessory should be his wife and VADDIE FOK is going on with her? The dress is revolting and so badly tailored – the bust is so unflattering and those thick straps look like a sports bra. then there is that necklace that is too long and falls into her boobs and looks like what your 13 year old cousin made at market day at school.
rs_634x1024-160110172449-634.jason-statham.cm.11016
to be perfectly honest I’m a little scared to put Jason Statham on here in case he gets wind of my insults and finds a way to hurt me (a genuine fear I used to have about that wrestler, The Undertaker, when I was 7). however, I’m a brave soul so here goes. this brown velvet blazer is so boxy and so mismatched to those pants, he looks like the dark chocolate candybar that never made it out of Willy Wonka’s testing room.
julia-louis-dicaprio-golden-globes-2016
100% sure I had this dress in navy in 2007 and have subsequently burnt all pictures of me in because it is so ugly.
uzo-aduba-golden-globes-2016
another one of last year’s superstars, Uzo Aduba from OITNB. my first problem is that sleeve – does it wrap aound the back of her like a seatbelt gone wrong? or a batwing that has lost it’s body? it’s too old for her. this is what Jane Fonda SHOULD have worn. or Dame Helen Mirren #grandmagoals.
kirsten-dunst-golden-globes-2016
sorry but who invited Kirsten Dunst to the Golden Globes? and where is the rest of her dress?
amy-schumer-golden-globes-2016
oh Amy. Amy, Amy, Amy. I get it. you’re sick of just being the funny girl who falls on red carpets and makes hilarious jokes about herself not being skinny enough for Hollywood. you’re brilliant at it. but you wanted something different and classic and elegant. what you got was boring and completely unsuited to who (I think) you are. and that hair needs to go home to it’s debutant ball in Alabama.
rs_634x1024-160110172826-634.Patricia-Arquette-Eric-White-Golden-Globes.ms.011016
this woman was on my worst dressed lists pretty much all throughout the 2015 Awards Season. clearly she’s a creature of comfort.
janefonda-reuters1
oh my good Lord. Jane Fonda, do me a favour and go get changed into Uzo Aduba’s black sequined dress because this meringue cream puff is a DISASTER.
melissa-mccarthy-golden-globes-2016
didn’t you wear this last year in a different colour? I know it must be very challenging for bigger woman to find beautiful, flattering dresses for these events but there is no need to have your already bad choices on a loop, Melissa.
kate-winslet-golden-globes-2016
oh Kate. you are such a style icon and so sensational. this is just so tired. maybe it wss an ode to Titanic and the heart of the ocean but in reality the only connection this dress has to the Titanic is how much it sunk to the bottom.

bryce-dallas-howard-golden-globes-2016
this reminds me of that really cool bio-luminescence phenomenon you can see on the shore sometimes at night. but in a bad way. the way that Disney would use in a child’s animation when the princess gets lost in the forest. in fact I’m pretty sure that’s a still from when Snow White runs away from the huntsman and the forest comes alive and she collapses.

carly-chaikin-golden-globes-2016

viola-davis-golden-globes-2016 MARCHESA
this really hurts me to do because I love Viola Davis. she is so often one of my favourite woman on the red carpet because she exudes strength and beauty and is not afraid to break fashion boundaries with her style choices. but this is too much. firstly, HAS SHE SEEN HER ARMS? I would bench press my worst enemy to have arms like that. so why would you cover them up, Viola? and then the ombre sparkle. it’s just not you. it doesn’t work. you need to stick to clean lines and pure colours, not this 1950s ballroom ballbuster.
jada-pinkett-smith-golden-globes-2016
it’s the draping. I just can’t. this dress would have been… fine… without those layers and layers of handkerchief sleeves falling behind her. the colour is pretty sensational on her but the sleeves are just too much, especially for such a petite woman. and the cowl neck also makes me want to vomit TBH.

These next few dresses I have a serious problem with. Nudes and neutrals can be a smash hit on the red carpet and there have been some exquiiiiiiiisite dresses in recent years that were on the skin-tone spectrum. But when I cannot tell where you end and your dresses begins, you’re going to be on this list. I do not wish to play and hide with you and what you’re wearing.

rooney-mara-golden-globes-2016
this Alexander McQueen would be so spectacular on anyone else. even another pasty patsy. but not on you, Rooney Mara. you look like a giant ball of skin and it’s giving me the creeps.

leslie-mann-golden-globes-2016
this could have worked. the colour is so beautiful on Leslie Mann and the bottom half of the dress is actually very pretty. but the top just frumps. and that necklace is so unnecessary. this is just a case of bad styling and an ill-fitting dress that ruins what could have been.

rs_634x1024-160110155036-634-leslie-mann-judd-apatow-Golden-Globe-Awards

katy-perry-golden-globes-2016
OH HELL NO KATY PERRY. I mean, we get it. you have boobs. but this dress looks like it is a size too small just so that you can show them off. and that’s not even the worst part. THAT BEEHIVE ON YOUR HEAD?!?!? honestly if there is a storm, avoid Katy Perry because her hair would be the highest point for lightning to strike.
emmy-rossum-golden-globes-2016
another repeat of a dress I am almost certain Emmy Rossum has worn; just with her hair up in a quaff. BUH-HOR-RING.

gettyimages-504365014_master
again with the sleeves??? clearly you share a stylist with Jada Pinkett-Smith. or maybe Guiliana had an aerial yoga class that she got stuck in.

That’s it for now. Keep an eye open for the best-dressed list, because luckily for my heart and soul there are those who actually do it right.

FENG SHUI FASHION

Namaste, bitches. I’m back.

And with a brand new outfit post! This time, I’m striking poses in the most beautiful gardens below the Chi Lin Nunnery – a magical dose of serenity amidst the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong and a definite recommendation for anyone visiting (or even living) this incredible place.

This outfit post is a little different because there’s no trend forecast or style summary, it’s just an outfit that I really liked and felt good in. Granted, it’s an aesthetic I have only adopted since moving to HK; where this kind of casual tailoring and proportional playfulness abounds. But that’s about as much as I can give you in terms of enlightenment.

Sometimes, you’re just feeling yourself. And there aint nothing wrong with that!

SILVER LINING

‘Tis the season to be jolly.

And merry.

And festive as folk.

It’s that time of the year when lights are brighter and everyone around you (from the shop loudspeakers to your four year old Chinese children) is singing some variation of We Wish You A Merry Christmas and Frosty The Snowman. Dammit, now they’re stuck in head. Again.

The festive season also ushers in a whole new set of rules when it comes to how you dress; especially when going out or counting down to a fresh start. Department stores, big name brands and fashion magazines know all too well that everybody loves a little sparkle over this period and so shop windows are laden with sequins and shimmers in every colour palette and silhouette you could imagine. Gone are the days when your only option to shine bright like a diamond (Rihanna currently replacing Frosty The Snowman in my mental loop) was to invest in a gaudy gold or silver sequined dress. Because fashion has realized that glitz and glam is more than just a title page for an editorial, they can actually can be combined aesthetically. And that understated elegance is often much more attractive and certainly more chic. Not that I’m hating on those backless, thigh-high, long-sleeved gold encrusted beauties from H&M because a girl can dream. I’m just saying there are now myriad ways to dress for the occasion.

Typically, I’m not a fan of much sparkle or shimmer in any form. But there was just something about this next piece that grabbed me. I also don’t ever wear silver. Or jumpsuits. Was I drunk when I bought this? (Wouldn’t put it past me). Maybe it was more about the potential to wear this in more ways than just the expected festive season ensemble; I liked the idea of taking something that is so closely intertwined with an evening celebration and juxtaposing it with street style and the casual undertone – aided by the black lining of the material – of the afternoon. So boom, silver sparkle jumpsuit purchased.

And shot, edited and sent into cyberspace for your perusal. Shout out to the queen mother for spending an afternoon in Stanley trying to figure which button to press to take the photos and actually doing a pretty good job (after much tutorial and eye-rolling from her daughter).

I hope you guys enjoy this one, it’s been a while since I posted and I need your love. Great, another song stuck in my head.

PINK SEASON.

I have a wishlist of clothes. It is pretty long and littered with a vast array of styles and pieces, but is slowly being ticked off and filled up. One of the items on that list is, and has been for almost a year, a baby pink box coat. And thanks to my incredible, magical friend Miss Alex Price – I now own one. And what better way to indulge in your new purchases than with a blog post styled and shot by that same incredible, magical friend? I know, right.

Alex and I went on a little (big) shopping spree just before she left Hong Kong (*crying*) and the result of that adventure can be seen in this latest outfit post – featuring the new coat and some killer sunnies from a Korean boutique. I’ve also recently discovered how much I love wearing my hair like 2013 Miley Cyrus/1998 Scary Spice/an alien; so you’ll see that here too. We shot this look in my street which is also an extremely busy and very smelly market, and then moved onto the rooftop of my building where we had to duck and dive between panties and bed sheets. Because faaaaashion.

So here you go, another personal style entry from my new home. Let me know what you guys think!

PUBLIC | CITY | PUBLICITY

“Please stand back from the train doors”.

I hear the voice of this very monotonous Chinese woman every single day, at least four times a day. She tells me where I am, where I’m going and how I get there. She tells me not to eat or drink on the trains or paid areas of stations and when to be mindful that I could be crushed between two electronic MTR car doors because I am too busy listening to some 90s pop song on my iPhone. She even tells me how to be a safe escalator user. But she has never mentioned anything about not shooting an outfit post on the Island Line to Chai Wan.

Take that, elusive Chinese voice lady!

As much as I wish I were anarchic enough to have chosen the MTR as a location just to spite the system, it happened completely by accident. I had plans to meet my magical friend Emily for breakfast and threw on a new sleeveless coat from Forever 21 due to the rain. And you know when you look in the mirror and just think to yourself Jean Claude Van Damm I look good! Exactly. So I asked Emily if she wouldn’t mind taking some pics for the blog. What a plan. However, we got rather lost (in that same rain) looking for a restaurant that happens not to exist anymore and wandered around in now much more torrential said rain to find an alternative. So after breakfast at the cutest little place called Open Door Cafe in Sai Ying Pun, we headed home.

cinnamon French toast, cappuccino and a kale and coconut smoothie because I'm a blogger now.
cinnamon French toast, cappuccino and a kale and coconut smoothie because I’m a blogger now.

Oops, forgot about the blog post. Well, never fear lovers because if I am anything, it is hilariously aware of how I am already being a total loser shooting outfit posts when I am not a model so why the hell not do it on the bloody MTR that I spend chunks of my life on. So Asian. So everyday. So entertaining.

So we here we go, my first Hong Kong personal style post. Hong Kong has such an eclectic mix of people that their style choices naturally follow that dynamic of differences, and it is very difficult to pin point an aesthetic that captures this enchanting place. There is, however, an affinity for clean cuts, easy tailoring and longer silhouettes paired together. And it is that “look” that I have been most drawn to adopt and adapt since moving here. And so this outfit was born.

I hope you enjoy this impromptu photoshoot in the middle of public transportation. I did it for you.

EMMYS 2015: RECOVERY

Ok. Ok. I think I can come back to this one now.

Last week I posted about the plethora of WTFs on the Emmys red carpet – a fashion-induced wound that has taken longer to heal than my hangover from Sunday’s junkboat. And that was bad.

But I have found it in my heart to forgive and forget and focus on the positives – those shining lights that waltzed their way down what must have been an eyesore of a red carpet looking nothing short of sensational. Because let’s face it; there were some winners that night.

So without anymore pomp and ceremony and general babbling on; I present to you my best dressed nominees for the 2015 Daytime Emmy Awards. You might be totally on my side with these choices and you might also think that all the rice and noodles have gone to my brain and caused it to short-circuit; either way we’re having a conversation here. And I would love to hear your opinion on the matter! So drop me a comment at the end of this post and let me know what you thought about the stylish successes from the awards show filled with has-beens, been-there’s and why-are-you-even-still-here’s.

Happy Tuesday.

SLAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY.  Taraji P.

Viola Davis was a MASSIVE winner at the Emmys; making history as the first black woman to win lead actress in a TV series drama for her role in How To Get Away With Murder. she also won in the style stakes (because like, where can I buy those arms?). I love that she kept it classy and simple, with natural hair and a beautiful coral lip. she is literally glowing and that, my friends, is what gets you onto a list like this. the woman is radiating happiness and confidence.
I do not know who you are but you are the cutest person i have never met and the only human being to wear polka dots on the red carpet and WIN.
