Confession of an Asian StyleHolic

Anugerah Industri Muzik 2009 (AIM 16) Post Party

As usual, I love post party for mainly two parts, one part because of the food (especially the spring rolls) and the other part because of the queue for buffet with celebrities. It is also the only time where I can snaps a celebs without 20 others photographers beside me!

Let see….


Spring rolls taste great, but Blue Carpet host, Awal even greater. He is in silver shiny two piece suit which looks classy on him.  Shiny may looks cheap on someone but not on him . Thanks to perfect cut and fitted suit and Awal God bless physical! Spring roll anyone?


Petite Salamiah Hassan with a giant. (Yes..that giant is me). She is wearing Indonesian designer Ijol from PuriPesona. Red dress with giant yellow bow (giant lagi!) guys.. she is very petite and that is why I look like so Amazon!  


He said he can’t wear red lipstick so he is wearing red suit. If he is wearing red lipstick, next role for Dafi; Joker in latest Batman movie. Batman producer is enough with purple  Joker so they want something blazing, angry, fierce red Joker. Dafi can easily secure the role if he stays inside this red two piece Rizman Ruzaimi costume for an audition. But don’t you think he is too cute to become a Joker? Don’t get me wrong, it is a great design but I think it is ‘ a very runway look’ .  The suit is too big for him, kind like Mc Hammer in 90’s. A bit miss lah this time, that is my honest opnion ok. Jangan marah ye..  I am crazy about the white shoes. He knows about how to choose extremely stylish white shoes to tame the red.


Marsha the Grecian Goddess. I love everything about this look, the sexy hair, the headband (so Mischa Barton), and oversized statement belt and oh..those gladiator sandals (sorry guys, not shown here) . It’s is red carpet and party ready. She said she bought the dress it in the middle of nowhere. Marsha, please tell us, where you get the dress?


This is how to accentuate boring plain yellow shirt; wear it over details vest and skinny pants. Most effortless and stylish dude of the night, Tomok. A million keep his head straight. Probably we will see Tomok transform into street wear boy to high fashion dude. Tomok, should you need shopping companion, you know who to call! Me, myself and I.


Most creative! The powerful manager, Vernon in songket petak kilt. Guys, it is kilt, not skirt, I repeat not skirt. Male wear kilt in Scotland. He flaunts the kilt with LV messenger bag. Congratulations to Vernon for your courage and braveness, just like sexy Scottish (gosh.. too much Braveheart, a little too much! ). To read his blog click here


Best AIM 19 Post Party dress. According to Nikki, she loose like 3 kg. It shows and it is an amazing weight lost.  Congratulation to both Jovian Mandagie and Nikki. This is the high fashion moment of AIM 19. Couture -couture Nikki…


From right, Dina is in red dress, Khairi Sufi the one who made the dress and that guy who has nothing to do but pose with irritating smile and ‘do blog’. Gone are the days where Dina is just an ordinary singer with an ordinary fashion sense. She should thank Khairi.


Designer Siti Nur Syuhada Shaharani  in a strong Bohemian accent.  


Iz OIM embraces his high fashion style. He is brilliant in choosing the right outfit for the exact moment. Immaculately dressed in  his Dior tux with  bow (custom made for him by AvisSim by AvviSuar New Zealand) , Hermes shoes and original hairdo (I call it IZ OIAM do). His album will be out after Hari Raya. Till then, you can enjoy his fashion sense. Read his blog here.


I don’t care about her sexy bareback. Nora Danish with Chanel Drill bag. Period!


Oh.. it’s Charlie Angels! Diaorang ni lagi best daripada Charlie Angels! Can you see Nora’s bareback? her dress remind me of Robert Palmer girls!


Ayu in a new designer (kalau tak salah Kamal Faizal) sorry ye Ayu kalau salah! Semakin vogue jutawan ni!


Siti Nurhaliza, is that you? Saida looks sooooooooo Siti Nurhaliza during pre-tudung days. ingat lagi tak dressing Siti waktu dulu-dulu?  She is wearing Rizman Ruzaimi.


Shila OIAM and her cute clutch. Very cute carry!


Another blue carpet host, Nazruddin Habibur Rahman with his wife in sexy one shoulder white dress, Sheahnee Iman. Naz maybe dah jemu dengan pakaian red carpet so he is into something very casual. Love his fedora!

Anugerah Industri Muzik ke 16 (AIM 2009) Award Show


Myself in black on blue ‘canvas’

Call it whatever you want but you must listen to your main sponsor!

We are used to ‘red carpet’ term but during Anugerah Industri Muzik 2009 it is blue carpet because  it is the official colour of main sponsor; telco giant Celcom. It is not glamorous red, but it doesn’t stop the style makers and seekers to walk gracefully on the blue carpet.

AIM that was held at Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) is also a sign that economic crunch doesn’t stop our boys and girls to make good music and to be in their own style.

Seperti biasa, saya dengan penuh berangannya berjalan di atas blue carpet AIM! Nasib baik  takde orang baling botol mineral water! Thanks to Encik Rahman from Persatuan Industri Rakaman Malaysia (RIM)  for the invitation.


My dear sis and friend, Kak Mar. Style by me!


Singapore Idol, Aliff Aziz in traditional songket print jacket, statement red buckle but his shoes are like… don’t you think it is so last year? But good try. You’ll do better next time, I can sense it!


Honey Madu in 2 piece slow volume English Victorian style (love the hat!) and Sharifah Aleya in red


I was seated next to two decently dressed ladies and lovely producers Raja Azmi and Zaiton Mohd Jiwa (Kak Tun). Raja Azmi memberitahu saya shortlisted untuk pelakon-pelakon utama Anu Dalam Botol sudah ada dan penggambaran akan dimulakan pada bulan Jun (sadly I am not in the list, probably I am not beautiful enough to become maknyah!.. hehehe.. gurau je yek). Kak Tun adalah kakak kepada Datuk K and that makes her kakak ipar Siti Nurhaliza (betui le kan?). She is the one who produce Spa Q (1 and 2). The next collaboration from them is Antara Anyer dan Jakarta which Raja Azmi is the script writer and Kak Tun is the producer. Wait for the slots ya…


Opening act by M. Nasir playing it simple in black.


The main characters of the night. I don’t like Afdlin Shauki ‘woody woodpecker’ hair. It looks cheap and not properly done and so Mr T from The-A Team.   Adibah Noor looks elegant in yellow and Bob Lokman in red shirt tux, glamour!


Sparkle, sparkle silver Misha Omar


Amazing performance and superb outfit!  Faizal Tahir in black and gold silver vest while Rossa dress just superb! Love the detailing, the colour and  the ruffles . Very couture!


Second change. Afdlin in blue velvet jacket and matching keffiyeh (nice styling!!)  while Adibah Noor in blue and black, a great combination of colour that compliment the dress. Still hate Afdlin hair!


Terra Cotta Warriors rapping!


Is it Nelly and the rest of his hip hop performers in town?


 Slumdog Millionaire dancers in town? No.. it is Chakra Sonic. Oh boy,  What a happening act! The music, the colourful outfits, the dance, just great!  


PLKN trainees ready for Malique show. Bergerak, bergerak!! Nasib baiklah saya dah tua, kalu muda lagi, tak pasai-pasai kena pi PLKN. Tapi my anak buah kata punyalah best kat PLKN.Macam-macam ada!


Congratulation Meet Uncle Hussein for winning the award and for being in festival ready outfit. Some of the indie band doesn’t even care to dress for award show. They are handsomely dressed in  military (or it is navy?)  inspired jackets. It makes me want to wear that type of jacket. Damn….. I want it!!!!!!!!!!!


The third and best change for Adibah Noor. Who said you can’t be in your best dressed if you are plus size? The black Calvin Thoo dress looks (and probably) expensive just like the million ringgit necklace from Fa’iq Jewels. Mahalnya barang-barang kemas ni!!!


Sheila Majid in empire ‘glamorous ruffles’ dress. She never fails to be in her best in any performance! To all young stars, listen. Sheila Majid is like a LAGENDA, thanks to her songs and her dress sense, two main recipes for success. Learn something from her!

Ia adalah untuk meraikan semua pemenang,selebriti, designer dan VVIP (ehem… saya salah seorang daripadanya… hehhehe, berangan sekejap). Beberapa buah bas ‘ditugaskan’ membawa semua yang dijemput daripada tempat berlangsungnya acara penyampaian anugerah, Arena of Stars, Genting Highlands ke Terrace Café, Genting Hotel. Bayangkanlah, artis-artis yang memakai dress yang ketat, sexy dan singkat tu semua tu naik bas.  Please imagine and let me know yek!  Via email only!


Ayu sedang menunggu bas ke post party. Semakin glamour cik adik ni!! She is in Faizell Ashraf dress. I like her hair do. Badan Ayu juga telah disaluti dengan debu-debu emas. Glittering!! Macam filem James Bond, Goldfinger pulak!


Turun je daripada bas,before anything, I eat like nobody business, it was a long award show and I am starving… I don’t care about celebrities around me! Eat, eat and eat!!!!


Fauzi Nawawi and Lisdawati. Probably they are hungry too. No time to review what they are wearing. Lisdawati dress mengingatkan saya kepada Chanel Couture Futuristic Collection  beberapa musim lepas. Mungkin kebetulan je kut!


They are so hungry too. You guess who they are! I am s hungry to think!


Rusdi Ramli with his very, very pregnant wife! Walaupun pregnant, tetap nampak vogue!


Saya minta Zizan pose, tiba-tiba Liyana Jasmay interframe dari belakang…Zizan looks very kelabu tonite!So Gucci runway look!


Myself with Dafi in silver vest with matching pants. I love ur songket tenun tie!! This is so typical Dafi style. Nothing wrong with that! But I just to see him in different wear.


I am cool in Nike!! Itulah yang cuba dinyatakan oleh Andy Estranged. He is 6’2. So tall lah!!!!!


I guess The Estranged is on casual mood. Look at Rich. Urgently need:- FASHION STYLIST



Myself with Marsha in Calvin Thoo.

Myself with Dato’ K, Dato’ Siti other half. Memang nampak cool Dato’ ni. Looks very formal, from the way he dressed to the way he talked.


Myself with Vanida Imran and Shidee. Nampak gemuk pulak Shidee, tak kenal malam tu. Tapi takpelah, dia gembira kut. Vanida as usual, sentiasa fresh and vibrant. Love her dress! Simple, effortless, dan dia dalam minimal make up. Memang nampak fresh.


Myself with Ashraf Muslim. He looks good in tux with songket bow. My choice for the most effortless yet sophisticated.


Kenchana Devi in Malay songket with Indian accent (the Indian inspired ear rings).Kesian Kenchana tak menang malam tu. Ramai yang terkejut.Kenchana dengan merendah diri menyatakan “takpelah takde rezeki, tapi saya masih ada peminat”  . Yeah girl, you are one talented creature! You go girl.


Tahniah kepada Maya kerana menang dan bajunya yang memang ada class. So high fashion! Tengok baju Maya teringat baju Dior yang dipakai oleh Sarah Jessica Parker (SJP) dalam Oscar tahun ni. Ball gown with belt. Tapi kalu dia bawak clutch yang kecik lagi lagi meletop!


Zed Zaidi in purple Thai silk jacket.


Irma Hasnie merah menyala malam tu. Love her hair, so cute! Her red lip just spell RED CARPET GLAMOUR!


Que Haidar as usual in his gothic mood. Frankly, I love his outfit. Throw the shawl and it is party ready!

Kuala Lumpur International Film Festival 2008 (KLIFF)


The above pic is me, eating like a hungry T-Rex in Kuala Lumpur International Film Festival (KLIFF) post party. I am really, really hungry after more than 3 hours in almost freezing PWTC hall. But, that is such actually a hot night.

The heat was generated from the glittering star studded festival in ‘me will impress you outfit’. The impression is not necessarily in most awesome way because some either trying to become clown or car mechanic. I believed they have their own stylist and designer, who am I to advise them on what to wear.

They are 14 awards at stake. But I am not really interested who won. Instead I am looking at what delegates from 44 countries wear and carry. I am like ahhhhh….for the ‘who design that’, mmm…..for ‘that is so pedestrian’ and ‘what?’ for please look at the toilet mirror.

Here are the some of my snapshots at the KLIFF.

Eja and me

Eja and me

Eja is so sweet. I compliment her on what she wears and she answered, ‘you like the dress? it is Bill Keith and Sarimah (KLFF host) wear Bill Keith too.” That is the reason why designers fought for Eja. She knows how to wear high fashion and with the plus factor; she market their product.


She is carrying Kate Spade oversized clutch. Eventhough I am not really into matchy-matchy  type but she did it well. Definitely a winner.

Another reason why I love Eja. She knows how to market herself!

Tanaka and food (behind her!)

Tanake Che. This Japanese born Taiwan based actress look sultry in long bareback red dress. Because of her two ‘female bodyguards’, no one can come near to her. During the post party, I saw her really focusing on the sandwiches and potato samosas. After this photos was taken, she back to munch AGAIN. It is true what they said, some born to be thin.
