1) An update from the Vera Wang Shanghai post from last time

  • There was a press release indicating the company was “reviewing our policy
  • The fee was then abolished
  • However, other bridal boutiques have been known to do this as well in Shanghai
  • This story kind of blew-up and shed some light on Shanghai shopping practices, making me curious about other international shopping practices

2) Beyonce covers British Vogue

  • This pose reminds me of her pre-Superbowl GQ shoot, non?
  • I do like the outfit
  • But the pose is too midriff-y

3) Cate Blanchett will be the face of an Armani perfume

  • Yay, I support this!
  • She also is a brand ambassador for SK-II skincare, which is really smart as she probably gets it for free
  • Hopefully Cate does not go endorsement-crazy, but I doubt she will

1) Vera Wang is reportedly charging a fee for patrons to try-on wedding dresses

  • This.Is.Awful.
  • I really hope this sways Chinese consumers to support local designers
  • China loves foreign¬†brands, and with all this talk of wooing Chinese consumers, you’d think there’d be some actual wooing

2) It’s Lakme Fashion Week in India!

  • Masaba Gupta is the ultimate queen of prints
  • I am however not a fan of roping in Bollywood actors to walk the ramps, keep that to the professionals, please

3) Toronto Fashion Week wrapped up too

  • Am not a fan of the official moniker: World MasterCard Fashion Week (WMCFW)
  • My fav Sunny Fong presented a more toned-down line for VAWK
  • His work always makes me nostalgic for Project Runway Canada, hosted by Iman, yes, IMAN!
