Suspenders

Firstly, sorry I have been MIA, missing in action. I have actually been travelling very much, therefore the lack of post. I will still be travelling coming March, so bare with me for my lack of post, but I will promise to update whenever possible. In the meantime, follow my Instagram for more of my outfit of the day post.

Back into topic:

Suspenders are fabric or leather straps worn over the shoulders to hold up trousers. Straps may be elasticated, either entirely or only at attachment ends and most straps are of woven cloth forming an X or Y shape at the back. So now you know what suspenders are, the question is do you wear them?

I remember when suspenders were big in the past where it would be worn in many formal events with an overcoat over it, however what about the modern society now? I remember people would ask what century are you from when you wore suspenders out a few years back, but are they making a comeback? Big menswear clothing stores are selling suspenders more often including H&M, Zara, Topman and many more are starting to sell them over the years with many different and interesting designs than the normal plain color.

Celebrities are also starting to rock the suspenders look. One of the significant celebs that wear them often is Louis Tomlinson from One Direction. You can see from his performance to his casual wear, suspenders are worn. This definitely affects the way teen starts to dress, including me since he is loved by millions of girls around the world.

In this time of age, suspenders somehow are not the first choice in dressing for male as some may think it is overdress while others do not fancy the idea of it. However, people with the daring personality to wear it wear them in formal or even casual occasions. I think suspenders are interesting fashion accessories that males should utilize, but keep in mind not everything goes with it. I personally won’t wear it with T-shirts but wear it with long sleeves button down shirts, but that is my opinion. Style is challenging the current fashion and make it your own, people remember you for your style! Where is your stand point on suspenders?

One question though, I am deciding whether to change this blog and talk more about lifestyle. It’s like I will focus on a variety of topics including the current trends and fashion, but I will add categories including vacation, food and others. Is it a good idea? Or should I just stick with this current only focus on fashion and trends blog? Comment would be appreciated.

71st Annual Golden Globe Men’s Fashion

I hope it is not too late to talk about the Golden Globe as I just recently watched it the night before. I am a sucker for award show, it’s nice seeing my favourite celebrity get rewarded after the outstanding performance they gave in a film. Even though the male fashion can be kind of boring however once in awhile it’s nice to see someone who stood out.

I have been asked to wear formal for a past few events, so I know how hard it is to match formal wear! Will update it in a post soon.

A big roundup would be that coloured suit is the thing to go this award season gala. The top 3, Leonardo DiCaprio, Channing Tatum and Bradley Cooper wore simple black suits, white shirts and bowtie or tie. Which I think is simple yet elegant, however for us commoner without their good looks, we might end up looking like a waiter. Therefore my advice would be the cutting of the suits is so important!

Coloured suits are beautiful! I love how the other 3 celebs wore it beautifully. Seth Meyers on his navy blue suit, Usher in his very beautiful burgundy colour and Matthew McConaughey deep green suit. It looks great but to be honest, it is not cheap for a suit, however we cannot be wearing the same coloured suit to different events, therefore owning a variety of it will be costly. I definitely love to have the variety but it would be too expensive to afford well-fitted suit and different colours of them.

All in all I think Usher is my choice of best dressed.

I want to talk about Jared Leto as well. Congrats to him and all the other winners on winning. Leonardo, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams, they were my favourites.

What does everyone think of Jared? I know he doesn’t looked like himself, or maybe it’s just me. I like what he wore especially his scarf. The amount of detail to his outfit was great.

He was rocking long hair and his scruffy facial hair and for me, I think he is a little too skinny for this look. I would love to see him shaved and short hair, but that’s my opinion. I still think he is gorgeous though and the weight he had to lose for his movie, Dallas Buyer Club was scary actually but it’s admirable. Just stating I like him short hair and shaved, that’s all.

MTV VMA’s 2013 Men Fashion

I know I am fairly late for this post, but better late than never. It was only a week plus after MTV biggest event of the year (from my perspective), beside girls striding the red carpet, guys did too. One thing about MTV VMA, it’s not a formal event, therefore many celebrities wore semi-formal suits or even casual wear.

I am not a fan of casual for events like this, but I find some semi-formal wear are actually very nice and I would totally wear it in my daily life. Have a look at some of my favorites male celebrities red carpet outfit for the night.

Justin Timberlake is definitely bringing sexy back, from his 20 minutes performance, it brought the house down! I have a whole new respect for him. However fashion wise, I don’t actually like the shirt he had on, which is black and white, it somehow don’t attract me. With the suit, I think he pulled it off handsomely.

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, both of these sexy Mofo’s had an amazing performance and I might say amazing fashion taste. It is casual enough for VMA however much formal for our everyday life. I actually like the challenge they took for this outfit. Love the fur scarf on Macklemore, I presume.

Adam Lambert fashion taste always has the rocker edge to it, but sophisticated in the same time. I find the shoes interesting though, not something I would wear but it’s interesting.

Congratulation Austin Monroe on his award. I like what he had on and the fact the shoe matches the suit, but I think it makes him look abit younger. It’s nice though.

My favorite boy band of all time! Congratulations on getting an award for Best Song Ever! I love them mainly because of the fashion sense they have. I don’t think they ever got it wrong when it comes to fashion. I like how they coordinate they fashion together. Most importantly the style they have can be inspire by us for our daily life.

And the best dress in my opinion goes to:

Darren Criss! He looked stunning in this maroon suit. Enough said, it’s perfect!

What do you guys think of the MTV VMA? What about the fashion? Let me know.

Cory Monteith

If you guys have heard about the recent news, Cory Monteith passed away on July 13, 2013 with only 31 years of age. To whom ever who doesn’t know, Cory Monteith played Finn Hudson in the series, Glee. I don’t think I need to explain to you what is Glee. I won’t deny that Glee has helped me through some of my tough times, his character was a part of it and therefore hearing him passing was quite heartbreaking.

I shall dedicate this post to Cory Monteith, for always the Finn Hudson, the quarterback who has a passion for singing and is not afraid to show it. You will be missed. I do hope you are in a better place now and my prayers go out to Lea Michele and his family.

I wanted to honor him, but was afraid that somehow it may be out of topic from the blog, so let’s honor him with his style throughout the years.

Cory and Finn had some similarities when comes to fashion, he dressed very simple with not much distinctive colours on him, the “jock” style.

Even though without much colours, his jackets looked pretty decent.

I personally like the left picture, Kid Choice Award 2011 where he rocked a scarf with his semi formal outfit.

Cory Monteith looked absolutely stunning in suit. I think he should have wore suit all the time because I believe that he wears suit much better than his regular clothes.

What better accessory can you have when Lea Michele is beside you? Both of them looked stunning and fantastic.

If your body is build like Cory Monteith, which is VERY tall and broad shoulders, the “jock” body type. I presume you would dress something like he does, but here are some small tips when it comes to fashion.
– Add some distinctive colours to your wardrobe, black and white is quite boring, don’t be afraid to wear red once in a while.
– Sneakers, boots do look good on you, so don’t always wear the same shoes everyday.
– Well-fitted suits are a must.
– Long pants should not be too short, because you are tall and the fitting sometimes don’t go right, but never settle for less.
– If you are not fit, wear more shirts to cover the belly of yours.

Here are just some tips, but do leave comments on what you think. Once again, my deepest condolence and I do hope Lea and his family make it through. ='(

MTV Movie Awards 2013 Best Dressed Men

MTV Movie Awards! Yup, it’s another award show and besides watching Rebel Wilson hosting the show, I like to check out award shows to look at style and fashion. Even though most of the items celebrities wear are not affordable to us but it’s nice to know what new designs and what we strive to get if we have the money.

MTV Movie Awards are not as glamorous or formal as Oscar, since the categories of awards includes best shirtless and best kiss, overly formal doesn’t suit it at all, but I like to see how celebs dress up with suits without being too formal. Watching through the red carpet, I came up with a few of my best dressed, so here they are. Though I don’t know who the celebs are wearing, but hope it might inspired you to wear something similar.

I do not own any of this photos. Photos are from OKmagazine, RemoteControlMTV, Hollywoodlife and TomandLorenzo

Beau Mirchoff

Beau Mirchoff looking absolutely stunning in the blue suit and shirt! Absolutely love how he matched everything and goes very well! I would love to get my hands on that suit he’s wearing.

Vinny Guadagnino

Bow-ties are definitely a nice touch to the perfect outfit, I recommend guys should get a bow-tie.

Charlie Carver and Max Carver

Charlie and Max Carver from Desperate Housewives. I love how they still wore formal suits to MTV Movie Awards. I believe that you can never be overdress for an event. Their well-fitted suits are a A+ in style!

Nolan Funk

Nolan Funk wore on a simple T-shirt with a suit making his style simple yet stylish. I like how it didn’t seemed to formal and suited the event.

Eddie Redmayne

Eddie Redmayne wore much casual clothes compare to his Oscar suit, but he still looked amazing.

The 5 above are my best dressed male of the night. Absolutely love all their style and I would love to be able to get my hands on those style as well.

Zachary Quinto

Zachary Quinto wore a DSquared suit which I love the color so much. The only thing was the fitting on the pants that didn’t seem appealing to me, wish he had made the pants slightly more fitting. Tip of the day: fitting clothes are essential!

That’s my review on the men’s fashion on MTV Movie Awards, what do you guys think? Agree or Disagree?

Lady Gaga turned 27!

Happy 27th Birthday Lady Gaga! (March 28, 2013)

How can she be 27 only? I know everyone’s gonna question that! Well, I won’t say I’m a top fan of Lady Gaga, though some of her music is catchy which I like. Since it’s her birthday, why not I talk about her, maybe I could create a category about stylish celebrities and talk about their fashion taste.

Lady Gaga’s fashion has been a talking topic since I could barely remember, it was more on her daring fashion taste that she wears stuff no one in the sane mind would and that’s what make her unique! Good or bad, you guys can be the judge of that.

A scroll through memory lane of her outfits which catches my attention. I actually do find some of her dresses and fashion are simply beautiful, but not all of them though. When Gaga just came out, her fashion statement was out of control, I mean literally her dress was not practical at all!

20130329-010617.jpg

Who could forget her MTV video music award at 2009? She couldn’t speak anything through that veil!

20130329-011137.jpg

The following year 2010 MTV video music award, do I even need to comment on this? You will be eaten by zombies from Miami. Not practical at all!

20130329-010539.jpg

Some could debate this Theirry Mugler Ensemble is nice, but the shoes are so not practical, yup, I use the word practical alot, because part of fashion is about practicality. The hair, NO! But the dress is actually quite nice, interesting, I must say.

20130329-010528.jpg

Erm….NO!

20130329-010508.jpg

Ornate Alexander Mcqueen gown and headdress. I like the dress, but not sure about the headdress though.

20130329-010451.jpg

This Ilincic Teal-and-Fuchsia dress with a Dr. Seus head piece looked like a sperm on her head and her nipples. =O

20130329-010517.jpg

Yes, we saw lots of her bad dresses and fashion taste, but to me, over the years, I think she’s becoming more sophisticated in her dressing. In this 2011 press conference, she wore an Artsy Naeem Khan Gown, which I think suits her and it’s so sophisticated!

20130329-010440.jpg

And who could forget her hairdo she made popular even in her music videos, it’s actually pretty, to me!

20130329-010417.jpg

2012 was a great year of fashion for her, she looked amazing in this Atelier Versace Grecian Dress!

20130329-010405.jpg

Her Maxi dress from May 16, 2012 is so sophisticated as well!

So yea, Lady Gaga might have commited many fashion crimes in the past, but I think she’s actually dressing more sophisticated and I would love to see what style she has installed for us.

My favourite dress of Gaga has to be:

20130329-010559.jpg

Glinda The Good Witch-Inpired Armani Prive Piece. Yes, simply beautiful, not practical but amazing! I love it so much that I actually did one of my project based on this dress.

Result

Project was to create a mask! I study architecture by the way!

Anyway, I wish her all the best in her career and have an awesome birthday! So what’s your favourite dress wore by Lady Gaga?
