Giorgio Armani: One Night Only in Beijing

China. China. China. The big players in fashion has their sights set on the economic powerhouse of the East. All the biggest, most extravagant parties are happening in Beijing lately. Giorgio Armani promised a spectacular One Night Only in Beijing event with an edited version of the 2012/2013 Autumn/Winter Emporio Armani and Giorgio Armani collections for men and women and the 2012 Spring/Summer Giorgio Armani Privé collection in a unique fashion showcase at the New Tank in Beijing’s 798 Art District. 1,000 guests including celebrities such as Michelle Yeoh, Fan Bing Bing, Shu Qi, Daniel Wu, Tina Turner and a special performance from Mary J. Blige. More than 100 looks were presented in a circular runway, designed like the water tank at 798 Art District by Giorgio Armani himself. It is one of those rare events that you just wish you were there (because I did).

Giorgio Armani and his Chinese models, all beautifully dressed in his collections.

15 new looks from the Privé couture collection were unveiled at the end of the show. Of course, inspired by the host country – China.

How stunning. Giorgio Armani shows off his key creation, a black figure-hugging gown with a gold dragon draping across the body plus black feather shoulder accents.

HOTTIE ALERT! Daniel Wu (seen here with Roberta Armani) wore a Giorgio Armani peak lapel tux with dark grey vest featuring a classic evening shirt and a bowtie.

adidas is all in! Event in Hong Kong

Everytime I visit Hong Kong, I feel right at ‘home’. I don’t know if it’s the dimsum or the fact that I speak Cantonese. I love Hong Kong, really. So I tagged along with the troop to adidas is all in! event at the rooftop car park of Harbour City. This is the Hong Kong chapter to launch the new adidas global campaign – similar to the recent adidas Sport Style Day which I attended in Singapore. I love that the party happens inside a giant adidas “shoe box” – haha.

I spotted some Hong Kong celebrities such as Angelababy, JJ Lin (ok, he’s Singaporean), Charlene Choi and Eason Chan. So nothing really happened for two hours so we left (before seeing Daniel Wu!) – yeah, it was pretty boring. Anyway, I don’t think Daniel Wu came – trying to tell myself that, really.

Me, Katherine and Debby – strike a pose!

The giant “shoe box” – that’s where the party started.

Inside the “shoe box”, local bands were jamming. I didn’t like the drink coupon idea – so high school.

Famous model (I can’t remember her name!) and her boyfriend (also a model, so unfair).

Singer JJ Lin an one half, no-scandal Twin – Charlene Choi. 

Charlene is more affectionately known as ‘Ah Sa’ in HK.

I’m no competition for these HK paparazzis. Afterall, I was there to enjoy myself :D

Red Carpet: 29th Hong Kong Film Awards

Bodyguards and Assassins is the big winner at last night’s 29th Hong Kong Film Awards. Congratulations to all the winners! Of course, Fash-E is more interested in the red carpet “hits” and “misses”. I try not to blog about the “misses” since they are not worth the ‘space’. I wish I had more information about the outfits on the red carpet. Here are some of my favourites (with some misses in between – guess!) from last night’s red carpet:

My vote for Best Dressed Female: Lynn Xiong

Winner for Best Supporting Actor, Nicholas Tse in Bottega Veneta.

Shu Qi and Chang Chen make a stylish couple.
