Confession of an Asian StyleHolic

Halle Berry rolled up baggy jeans

Katie Holmes must be happy. She has a new follower.

Halle Berry trying to look comfy and urban chic to reminisce Suri’s mom rolled up baggy jeans. 

I am not impressed.  The disadvantage of this trend is it makes one look shorter and bulkier than she really is . Why you want to wear something that will only make you less perfect? Halle Berry is perfect but if you look at her with this look, she looks short and like a 15 year old boy. I blame the jeans and pixie cut!

But if you out there really want to wear it, make sure you have acceptably long legs and put on your highest heels!

This is an ultimate mom jeans. That is why Halle and Kate wearing it because they want to tell the world that they are mom. Ladies… we have internet and paparazzi and your publicists. We know your baby since they are is in your body. Enough of the baggy rolled up jeans!

Oh…Halle Berry baby girl Nahla looks so cute. I want to have baby now!

Thanks to Michelle Obama, Jason Wu is now online!

Thanks to Michelle Obama, Jason Wu suddenly all over the world. He was born on the other part of the world, Taipei but now based in other part of the world, Manhattan. Everywhere, from London to Kuala Kangsar (my hometown, I know some of them know about fashion!), people must be at least heard or read about Jason Wu. Her magical dress turns Michelle into a magical first lady!

This is the power of celebrity (Michelle is a super-celebrity). It is like my friend story. His business profit sky rocketed when Erra Fazira wore his design once. Only that freaking one time and now he is driving a fancy car and staying in a fancy apartment. So designer wannabe, get that magical celebs.

In Jason Wu case Michelle is not the last. Other Godzilla fashionista in Jason Wu is Katie Holmes, wearing his Fall 2009 Collection. I just wonder, what’s that legging doing there? FYI that is not Jason Wu.

We it comes to muse, Jason choose supermodel Chanel Iman, who he said “She’s such a sweetheart. She’s very elegant and tall. I also love Jourdan Dunn, and Karlie Kloss”.

His creation is a great investment. It is seasonless. Even it is Spring 2009, it is still look good in Summer 2012. He is  producing collections that are almost seasonless. When his Fall 2009 collection arrives at Net-A-Porter in August, customers will want to wear the clothes now. He is mindful of this when he designs, producing pieces in a mix of fabrics.”

Katie Holmes for Miu Miu

Below are the benefits of becoming Mrs Cruise?

  1. You can like ‘having’ it with Mr. Cruise on daily basis
  2. You can have a cute, adorable child in the whole entire world, Suri
  3. You technically don’t have any big movie now but yet you are famous
  4. You can get away with anything like “that not so flattering rolled up baggy jeans” and yet people called it latest style
  5. Your BFF is Victoria Beckham
  6. You’ve been selected for Miu Miu’s spring/summer ’09 campaign


Speaking about reason No 6, the above is the new look of Katie Holmes for Miu Miu.

For those who think Miu Miu is a name of a cat, you are wrong. Miu Miu is a cheap, affordable version from Prada house. It is taken from the designer, Miuccia Prada’s nickname. It is like CK Jeans for Calvin Klein, DKNY for Donna Karan and Versus for Versace.

Katie is photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Holmes portrays “a luminous icon radiating a sense of mystery and theatricality.” Erm… I can read that word but to interpret I need like 20 seconds. If you can’t interpret this, don’t worry. It’s nothing wrong with you. Blame Katie because she looks super hot, skinny and classic. BTW, where those cheekbones come from?

Past faces of Miu Miu includes Johnny Depp GFF (girl friend forever) actress Vanessa Paradis, Kirsten Dunst and Lindsay Lohan.

Celeb and carry

This is where what you get when you marry rich actor. You can get to wear and carry Hermes. Katie Holmes just what she (and British soccer WAG’s) always did, put on everything expensive, create a look, pray for someone to photograph and voila… you are on every magazine and blogs ( included).

Plus she will never have to queue for 2 years waitlist to get the bag!
