Confession of an Asian StyleHolic

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.”

First Lady Style– Rosmah vs Michelle

This is not a political blog. I try my best not to include any political stuffs because this is a style blog; from an Asian guy eyes to the world. Don’t let political differences divide us!

I vote. Let it be a secret which party I put X to.

But, my dear friend Jamsari from Borneo aka ‘Cheap and Chic’ called me this morning and begging me to include something about two first ladies, Michelle and Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor sense of style.

So Jamsari, this is it (FYI – Me and Jamsari support different political party!)


Can you see the similarity of both wave? When they wave, both of the ladies will smile.Nothing conservative about their look. They like to play with details. Why need to be plain on your first day of First Lady?


Michelle Obama and Barack Obama 


Both like it hot. Rosmah in red floral details while Michelle in plain but not boring  red!



 Both love to pose. Rosmah looks adorable in Red and Michelle looks stunning in her favourite shade, purple.




Rosmah like it print and I personally like the beadworks. Michelle like it simple with same toned brooch.





Both look fresh in green. Can you see how they work the green thing?
