One Pretty Baby

I just read about the news that Blake Lively is expecting a baby with Ryan Reynolds and honestly it’s really exciting because watching her for years on Gossip Girl as the sexy Serena Van Der Woodsen and now she’s gonna be a mother… It’s almost surreal as much as I am elated and excited along with all Gossip Girl fans as well. One thing’s for sure, the baby is definitely gonna be good lookin’ . Congratulations Lively & Reynolds! Check out Serena’s pregnancy announcement on her own US site, Preserve here.

Launch of Women’s Fashion Week 2011 Haute Couture Exhibition at Marina Bay Sands

Last Thursday, my girlfriends Bini, Kat and I attended VIP Launch of Women’s Fashion Week Haute Couture Exhibition, thanks to Senatus, the online magazine that’s bringing us all these fashion goodness. ๐Ÿ™‚

We had classes in the day, so we proceeded to Bini’s pad to watch half a movie (Drag Me to Hell which was too much for me to bear, so I pleaded / took the remote and shut it :P) before we freshen up and change for the night’s event! We also took the opportunity to spam some photos. ^^V

I really like my new bangs with a new coat of purple dye! ^^

Here’s a picture of us posted on Senatus website. ๐Ÿ™‚

A selection of dresses by the 8 french hautes couturiers were on exhibition. Here are just a few that were presented!

This dress is designed by Eymeric Francois.

This is by Gustavo Lins. I like the warrior-like buckle elements of the dress.I forgot to note who designed this purple dress, but it’s one of the most striking coloured dress exhibited. *Update* This dress is designed by Maxime Simoens! ๐Ÿ™‚The reason why I post about this dress is because…Blair from Gossip Girl wore it! She is wearing a dress by Maxime Simoens. Note a funny looking Serena standing behind her. ๐Ÿ˜›ย Chairman of WFW 2011 was there to greet the press and VIPs. He says it will be the first time 8 french haute couturiers will be showing outside of Paris! It is such a landmark fashion event, happening in Singapore. ๐Ÿ™‚A short preview collection byย Alexis Mabille! He says this is a teaser of what he will be showcasing, all of the dresses are white because during his actual runway collection he will showcase his coloured dresses. The models look like fairies in these dresses. There is an ethereal feel and they remind me of how the female immortals dress like in old chinese dramas!ย Guess where we went after the event?

MBS Cold Storage Specialty store! HAHA.

I thought it’d be funny to take photos with the food and stock. So here are a few goofy shots of us!

With Andy Warhol’s favourite and approved Campbell Soup Can.
One shot of the Queen of Poses!
I meant to head home after the event because I was lugging a big bag but my girlfriends Bel and Jacq convinced me to head out to Overeasy to meet new friends and some drinks. After some drinks our new friends brought us to Avalon as they got us on their friend’s list for the night. So there I was, back at MBS for the second time that night. Haha. The night was uneventful for me, but I can’t say the same for the other girls. ๐Ÿ˜› In anycase, here’s the beautiful scenery just outside the club.

Back in those days, Nanyang (as Singapore was then known) was the stuff of dreams. Now in the 21st century, it still is the stuff of dreams and many more to come. ๐Ÿ˜€

Wishing you a blessed week ahead! Wish me all the best in finding and securing a wonderful internship! I need your prayers!

Robinsons x Mio TV Prime Time Fall Fashion at Avalon Singapore

Hello hello! How’s your October coming along? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sometime during September, I was invited to Robinsons x Mio TV Prime Time Fall Fashion. Clara of Nom-media (Nuffnang, Churp Churp) called me to confirm my invitation. Clara also invited Eileen, my friend and ex-colleague as they are very close friends. Do check out Eileen’s blog Sylelyn, which I’ve also linked by the side bar! I was very glad Eileen also attended the event and that we got to catch up after a longgg time! x)

Amanda, Clara, Eileen and myself ๐Ÿ˜‰

It was very disappointing that the event started very late. We were invited to arrive at 7.30pm but the show only started at 9.40pm. I was particularly sad that I missed my French class from 7-9pm. I could have attend my French class and still made it for the show. ๐Ÿ™

Thankfully though, that the fashion show itself was great, it combined both aspects of Robinson’s fashion labels and Mio TV’s upcoming season shows very well. Videos of the shows that inspired the Fall fashion would play before the models came down the runway. ๐Ÿ™‚

Unfortunately for me, I forgot to bring my camera. o.O This kind of shows that I’m not really clue-d into the whole blogger identity yet. Oops! So the pictures are taken by pretty Elizabeth, a friend of Eileen and Clara whom I met at the event! ๐Ÿ™‚ Do check out her blog here. ๐Ÿ™‚

A preview of the shows that Singtel Mio TV has to offer this Fall:

Some of the brands that were showcased includes Eryn Brinie and Rebecca Minkoff. ย Most bloggers probably don’t post the gift-bags that the sponsors give away but I like to do so anyway! I mean, who’s not interested to know what the give away includes? ๐Ÿ˜›

Each gift bag includes a Mio TV tissue box, samples from Kiehl’s and a press release folder. ๐Ÿ™‚Here’s what’s inside the Kiehl’s sample set. My friend gave me no.4 blemish clearing control. I’ve been using it and I feel that it’s very mild but it does work. It also has a medicated scent which I find oddly nice. I would like to use their lip balm someday! We were also given hair-conditioner sample (has to be redeemed at the store).That’s all for the event! Next up, Women’s Fashion Week 2011 VIP Reception and Press Announcement at Marina Bay Sands! ๐Ÿ™‚
