Skinny belt + cardigan

Love this new simple chic style. Skinny belt over a loose cardigan and make the rest of the look tight with leggings/skinny and sky high platform heels/booties. Would try the look soon!!

Angelina Jolie Max Azria dress

News about Angelina Jolie wearing her Max Azria cornflower blue flowy gown backward during the recent Screen Actors Guild Award is making a buzz in blogsphere and fashion world alike. So what if she decided to wear it backward and showing off her tattoos on her back which I think is super sexy and I love. There is no rules in fashion that say this is the front and this is the back. I sometimes wear my clothes backward. Spice it up a little bit and have a new cloth!!

By the way I still in love with the olive green Max Azria long gown that she wear at the Cannes Film Festival 2008 while still heavily pregnant with the best men-cessorize in tow, actor husband Brad Pitt!! She is the epitome of beauty and sexy that makes every pregnant women in the world green with envy.

Tom Ford interview for International Herald Tribune

Watch a clip below where the cute, stiff-hair, mannequin-ish, Madam Suzy Menkes a respectable fashion editor and constant front row attendees interviewing the impossibly handsome, dashingly elegant Tom Ford about his new store in Milan. One word. G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S.

And don`t miss to watch Tom Ford talking fondly about James Bond aka Daniel Craig with giddy eyes. And yes, Tom Ford will be dressing James Bond for the next movie.

`Italy is one of the last places in the world where men..dress..and dress beautifully and appreciate beauty`. by Tom Ford. What can you say.. I am agree with him. Milan, here I come.

Hey guys!! I know I've been away far too long!. Cold, flu, runny nose and sore throat for 2 weeks straight after a long fabulous holiday in LA make it impossible!! And to write a 50 pages final year thesis in Japanese doesn't help either!! Bear with me gentle readers!! I'm holding on to whatever pieces left on me right now. =D

Butt =).. I've got an email from my old friend Prince Azim (*lol. Not from Brunei.) who happened to visit my blog. He was kind of casually sending me the photoshop-ed photo of me. What he did was just changed the background so it looks more spacious, presentable and I quote 'grand' <---ok I get it. Surprised surprised I kinda like it too!!

So now I have to add another entry to absurdly long list of my 2009 New Year resolutions. To learn the art of Photoshop!! I know. I'm like what?? Engineering undergraduate student with no skills of all?? It's killing me to even think about it!! =D Welcome to 21st century to me!

Fellow blogger. Can you share with me what software do you use to edit all photos in your blog?? Is it more..simple than photoshop?? or is it better than photoshop? Leave a comment y'all!!

Top 10 key looks for Spring 2009

Hi gentle readers. I know it's kind of months late. But these are the picks for Top 10 key looks of Spring 2009 based on Men

1. The pajamas. It made it's debut on the runway a few season back in Dolce & Gabbana and still here on the runway making it's mark. Its obviously for guys with confident, elegant, know-what-I`m-doing attitude to pull it off on the street during the day, top it with classic blazer and newspaper in hand. Bottega Veneta Spring 2009

2. Indian/Oriental influences. Bright flashing colors and rhinestones are not for sari anymore. Bright ethnic hue such as purple, emerald, pink, green had made their way to the runway. And the fabric had gone more flashy than ever with metallic shiny finish, taffeta and silk. Giorgio Armani Spring 2009.

3. Fading/gradient pattern. Made its debut on Prada a few season back. But mostly on shoes and handbag. But the illusion-eye-catching pattern made its way on the dresses and surprisingly mens wear too!! To me, it's one of the 'seasonal' thing that might look good this season but maybe not next season. By Givenchy Spring 2009.

4. Preppy retro look. Fashion is just a cycle. Now it's back!! The preppy blazer, checkered pattern, plaids even the supermodels made their way back to the glossy runway!! the best way to wear this look is, keep it simple as much as you can, with just shirt, pattern/strip blazer, cuffed pants, really vintage hat and genuine leather retro bag. By Junya Watanabe Spring 2009.

5. All white. There are saying out there that you cannot pretty much wear white after 4th of July but listen.. screw them. You can wear what you want what you please these days!! Look at this clean cut, airy feeling. It's approachable, clean and simple! By Kilgour Spring 2009.

6.Pink . Pink dont usually equal masculinity but in recent runways you can see that pink its definitely dominating compare to other colors. Just look at John Galliano's runway. It's crazy. Guys who are confidence enough with his masculinity and having no problem at all wearing pink is the twisted 'in' thing this season. By Louis Vuitton Spring 2009.

7. Micro pattern. Yes, like I said before, pattern is back. It's not on your necktie anymore. On your shirt, blazer, pants, jacket. Expect to see a lot of them coming and dont act surprise because I dont want to be the one who tell you 'I told you so'. By Moschino.

8. The wide stripes. It gives the illusion 'taller' to the one who wearing it. Definitely improving your body posture, make you look elegant, sophisticated and confident. It's very European. By Paul Smith Spring 2009.

9. Low scoop/boat neck. It's not for everyone. Totally for tall, lanky, slim guys with broad shoulders and long neck. To keep it simple, pretty much every male model you see on the runway these days!! But it looks good paired with clean cut blazer. Yes. Men are the new women. By Prada.

10. Cuff shorts. Yes. Cuff is on trend. I dont know what happened, but you can spice up your whatever-there in your wardrobe and make it this season by adding cuff to it. By Versace Spring 2009.

Tell me gentle readers. What is your favorite?

Friday, 9th

I`m channeling my inner rock star today with dangling 3 layers star chain necklace ala YSL, with leather gloves and gray rider jacket that I like so much from Hanjiro. Blue Levi`s jeans and black boots to complete the total look. The only problem is, it`s freezing cold outside and I need to add another layer!! I know. I`m such a poser!! Forgive me gentle readers!! LOL.

Cam Gigandet, LA

He is Cam Gigandet of Twilight. He is a zombie. Spotted while shopping in Barneys at Beverly Hills in LA. Gray t-shirt, `utilikilt`, argyle high socks, and buckle boots. I`m gasping for air.

And this is Marc Jacobs while taking a bow at recent Spring 2009 men`s Marc by Marc Jacobs runway show. Tell me gentle readers, would you wear a kilt? Do you own one? I will..when the time come. I have to buy one. Time to hit the gym and tone my calf.
