Fresh Spreads: Trash Couture

Vogue Korea's December issue spells wow, and its the reason why it remains as one of my favourite Vogue editions today. The cover font and styling is always so different that it outshines its comtemporaries.

The cover may appear dark and somewhat unattractive to consumers, but nevertheless, it's still Karlie and her death stare.

Her editorial Trash Couture is far from trashy. Just take a look at the lighting and the gorgeous set, I think Vogue Korea is on its way to win international appeal. I will definitely want to grab a copy for it if I chance upon one!

Spotlight: Rock & Republic

Rock & Republic looks ever classy and rock with Charlotte Carey as the brand's new face. She is a gorgeous Indonesian-English, currently signed with Storm and IMG New York. Although petite for a model, her dynamic poses in these shoots make her legs look miles long. Watch her working the camera in this video.

This is my favourite dress. The simple deep V neck cut on top makes way for the ultra-embellished bottom. Who says minimalist can be boring.

The knee-length boots and micro mini dress fit perfectly well together.

Heels for a great cause

The fashion community (or rather killer heels lovers) have come together to support a great cause. Jimmy Choo and Elton John AIDS Foundation have launched a photo competition to support the launch of Project PEP, a charity collection that donates 25% of sales to the Simelela Rape Centre in South Africa.

The theme of the photo competition is ‘You, Your Shoes and 72’ and the entries have been really fresh and fashion-forward.

Black hells, mirror ball and leopard prints, an oddly beautiful combination

One of my favourite entry, a vivid sketch of a graffiti heel.
Vivid spiked pink shoes

Jimmy Choos... a gorgeous timepiece.

Do view more interesting entries at, the entries are really diverse and unique. Collaboration of high fashion labels with welfare organizations has been fashionable of late, yet I really hope it will never go out of trend.
