The Fall 2018 season is far from over! Catch up on my coverage here and see the top runway moments through my lens.
「有時送舊 也無法換新 興建加速沒落
2018年在巴黎的這個時刻，是第五次造訪巴黎時裝週，全程戴著Bell & Ross BR S Blue Steel自動計時腕錶，記載每分每秒，同時倒數這個旅程的終結，是下個章節的開始。 喜歡其招牌式的方形錶面，硬朗而優雅，我們有誰不是因歲月因經歷而硬朗起來，我們有誰不曾輕狂過才明白活著的優雅。最重要是過程，冒著雨看著錶趕往騷場，為自己的時尚里程爭分奪秒，感覺就是在我餘生中最年輕的一日不柱過。
People say, today is the youngest you’ll ever be. Time is ticking, and it’s up to us to give life a meaning. Seize the day and enjoy it, because this very moment will never come again.
So, how’s your day?
This 2018 moment in Paris marked my 5th time visiting the city during Paris Fashion Week. I was wearing Bell & Ross BR S Blue Steel, the automatic mechanical timepiece that was not an accessory but an essential part of my travel - not only did it count down to the end of the journey, but it also accompanied when I embarked on a new chapter. Its signature square watch face reminds us to go after our dreams, make the most of every blessed second and don’t miss the fun. Be there or be square, after all.

Happy 90th, Oscar! We are still mesmerized by the bright array of dress and suits on that Hollywood’s biggest night. We’ve bowed down to these pros who totally slayed the red carpet. It’s hard to win the Oscars, but it’s even harder to win the Best-Dressed, and here’s the recap of some of the best moments here.
Frances McDormand in intarsia gold, took home with the gold (which was nearly stolen but returned!) for her leading role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Not your average award-winning actress, she might as well have won “Best Beauty by Wearing No Makeup” with her relaxed approach to red carpet style. And her rousing “stand with me” speech marked a powerful moment and her 2 words stunned the audience and changed Hollywood, “inclusion rider”. Nothing could have possibly been more beautiful.
Gary Oldman winning Best Actor for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in the Darkest Hour could have been his finest hour. And of course the film also won Makeup and Hairstyling Award for the amazing prosthetic makeup for his transformation.
Get Out Star Daniel Kaluuya did not take home with him the golden statue, but he might have run the Best-Dressed looking on point in his caramel Brunello Cucinelli velvet tux jacket. And likely the Best Response to awkward “box-ticking” question on the red carpet.
Not to mention the youngest best actor nominee in almost 80 years, Timothée Chalamet stole the show with his white Berluti suit. At 22, Timothée has been the Hollywood heartthrob making everyone swoon with his role in Call Me by Your Name.
So many great movies this year but The Shape of Water was definitely one of our favourites – The otherworldly fairy tale by Mexican director Guillermo del Toro winning Best Achievement in Directing, Best Achievement in Production Design, Best Original Score and Best Motion Picture of the Year. And Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were back to present this final award after last year’s Oscars!
Yes, we’ve made it to grand finale and what a wrap!
Settling into the new year (and the Chinese New Year), I’ve sat down and mulled over my resolution ideas. We all do, don’t we? It’s like a “trend” – at this time every year, we’ve got big ideas about making new changes that we’d like to manifest in the year that lies ahead. But how resolute are we all in these resolutions?
Then I came to think about the secret of living the law of attraction I was so curiously intrigued by. What’s New Year’s Resolution in LOA style?
Attracting all that we want and desire is one thing, upholding our promises to ourselves is another. But first, feel. How do I want to feel this year?
Uplifted? With a character, I think I’ll start with the shoes.
Elegant? Like a finishing touch to an outfit.
Amazed? Just as how learning all the impeccable details and the few hundred aesthetic steps from the Bolognese shoemaking know-how could blow your mind.
And after all, excited, that my collaboration with various brands can share with you all the values we mutually and truly care about.
So here’s a note to this year:
It’s my pleasure to do the things that make you feel good.
P.S. Guess I haven’t yet shared with you, the beauty of Bologna was beyond words, and a remarkable visit to a.testoni perfected my trip on a sweet note. And not boasting my ability to spell out the Cs - commitment, craftsmanship, construction, and comfort that the brand offers have unquestionably left me in awe.
