Best Dressed: 2012 MTV EMAs

OH YES. The 2012 MTV EMAs is all about Gangnam Style. Yes, dress classy and dance cheesy. Country cutie Taylor Swift went home with the most awards but we are more interested in what she is wearing. What’s awesome about the EMAs (in my humble opinion) is the complete randomness. You can expect the most eclectic tastes in music and icons (The Hoff. Enough said.). Let’s see who wears what at the 2012 MTV EMAs and absolutely rocked it:

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Rita Ora

Rita Ora pulled out the big guns in this dramatic, red Marchesa Fall 2012 gown. LOVE IT!

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys hit the spot in this Stella McCartney tri-colour “Miracle” dress. That hair is just sharp!

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Kim Kardashian

YES. Kim Kardashian set the benchmark in this remarkable Stephane Rolland dress with a glamorous train.

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Pixie Geldof

I couldn’t help but notice Pixie Geldof clutching on her Maison Martin Margiela for H&M candy wrapper clutch in metallic pink. HOT!

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Heidi Klum

I can’t decide whether I like this or not (seriously). Heidi Klum definitely stood out in this Versace Spring 2013 number.

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Anna V

Anna V lives her life dangerously in this “smoking” zipper dress.

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Taylor Swift

I’ve seen Taylor Swift in these white, ethereal one, too many dresses. She still looks beautiful in this J. Mendel Fall 2012 gown.

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey excudes vintage glamour in this satin, blue dress. Simple yet chic.

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Louise Roe

Louise Roe channels the glam gladiator in this gorgeous white dress. Not lovin’ the snakeskin clutch though!

Best Dressed 2012 MTV EMAs: Carly Rae Jepsen

Call me, maybe? Carly Rae Jepsen shines in this Johanna Johnson dress.

Lana Del Rey in Singapore: Mulberry’s First Asian Flagship Store at Mandarin Gallery

Hands down, this is THE event of the week. American songstress, Lana Del Rey was in Singapore for to celebrate the opening of Mulberry‘s first Asian flagship store at Mandarin Gallery, Singapore. The singer inspired the Del Rey bag and the limited edition Club21 Del Rey will be available in Singapore first before anywhere else. Thanks to Club21 for the fabulous invitation (I couldn’t be more thankful!) to meet Lana Del Rey in person. I swear I was shaking like a fangirl when I took a quick photo with her. Fans were parked outside the store and collectively sang her entire album’s songs. It was insane! It’s lovely to see how friendly and accommodating Lana Del Rey is when it comes to her fans’ requests. Now, that’s a real star. Here are some photos from the night (and it was definitely to be remembered):

Look Book: Lana Del Rey for H&M Fall 2012

Believe it or not, Lana Del Rey is the face and the voice of H&M Fall 2012 collection. I first blogged about Lana’s influential style back in March 2012 and how she inspired Mulberry‘s new iconic bag, Del Rey. You can’t deny Lana Del Rey‘s phenomenal success since she first seduced us with her velvety voice in “Video Games”. She will be starring in a print campaign shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin (see the more looks on my Facebook Page). I can’t wait for the exclusive short film of Lana singing a cover of “Blue Velvet”, shot by director Johan Renck which premieres on September 19th, together with the Fall 2012 collection in stores worldwide. Let’s start taking shopping notes on what to buy at H&M this Fall:

H&M Fall 2012: Lana Del Rey

From knitted sweaters to printed leggings, it’s time to keep warm and toasty this Fall 2012.

H&M Fall 2012: Lana Del Rey

You gotta love this blush pink angora blend sweater. It’s like wearing cotton candy.

H&M Fall 2012: Lana Del Rey

I used to have a white trench coat with faux fur trimmings. It’s time to update the look for your winter holiday.

H&M Fall 2012: Lana Del Rey

I love the paint splattered print and of course, ox blood – hottest colour for Fall 2012.

Fash-Icon: Lana Del Rey Inspired Mulberry’s Del Rey Bag

CONFESSION: I have a girl crush on Lana Del Rey and her deep, velvety voice. Ever since I first heard Lana Del Rey‘s “Video Games”, I’m hooked on this unlikely fashion icon. The 25-year old, New York-born songstress is probably the first artist to sell more than 100,000 album copies in 2012. To date, she has already performed in Saturday Night Live and The Late Show with David Letterman. What I love about this “self-styled gangsta Nancy Sinatra” (that’s how she describe herself – total bad ass!) is her luscious pout and bewitching blue eyes. Everything about her oozes with retro glamor like a modern pin-up girl. The British fell in love with Lana Del Rey as she graced the cover of British Vogue March 2012 issue.

Luxury English label, Mulberry created a new iconic bag, the Del Rey after the phenomenal success of “Video Games”. The Del Rey bag reflects the elegance of Old Hollywood without losing its simple, timeless style. The Del Rey bag launches in May 2012 as part of the Autumn Winter 2012 Main Collection in these colors: Deer Brown Grainy Print, Black Forest Soft Matte, Black Soft Spongy and Petrol Veg Tanned Lambskin leathers. The Del Rey Catwalk Collection will be launched in September 2012 featuring two new super-luxe leathers, Gold Large Metallic Snake Print and Ink Blue Sparkle Croc Print, Dark Brown Metallic Fur Print and Black Ostrich. There is also an Oversized Del Rey size in both Ink Blue Sparkle Croc Print and classic Black Soft Spongy leather. Here are some of my favorite looks from Lana Del Rey and why she is the starlet to watch in 2012:

Shot by Mario Testino for British Vogue, isn’t she pin-up delicious?

Best Dressed: BRIT Awards 2012

Hurrah! The well-deserved Adele continued her winning streak and took top honors at the BRIT Awards 2012. The BRIT Awards may not be as ‘big’ as the Grammys but missing out on the red carpet action would be a sin. Rihanna blew everyone away in her beaded, plunging neckline Givenchy Couture gown paired with brown leather gloves and studded Givenchy heels. Absolutely rockin’! On the other end of the spectrum, Jessie J got our attention with her Falguni & Shane Peacock red sheer, lace gown – which left our imaginations running wild! And of course, Lana Del Rey in a gorgeous off-shoulder Vivienne Westwood number. This girl has been making headlines plus she just announced her namesake bag by Mulberry called ‘Del Rey’. Let’s see the best red carpet looks at the BRIT Awards 2012 and tell me your favorites:

Rihanna in Givenchy Couture. Simply divine.

Lana Del Rey is sooo gorgeous. That off-shoulder, red Vivienne Westwood is the bomb.

Kylie Minogue brightens the red carpet with her cobalt blue YSL gown with a sparkling detail at the waist.

The big winner Adele keeps it modest and chic with her black Burberry gown.

Here comes the sun! Nicole Scherzinger looks sun-kissed in this yellow Versace gown.

Pixie Lott goes glam in this beautiful Dolce & Gabbana gown.

Jessie J – I’m not a fan but c’mon, this woman dresses for the attention. Alright, granted.
