It has indeed been a while since I touched on something bridal. But I couldn’t resist.. there are so many bride ideas from the recent awards season.

Asymmetrical Hemline and High Slits

Charlize Theron and her Dior dress is definitely one of my recommended pin-up inspirations for your wedding!

Show off some of your well-toned legs with a high slit or go contemporary with an asymmetrical hemline.

Go for Gold

Gold dress for the wedding banquet, anyone?

Red is Auspicious

For Chinese brides, your parents and parents in law would be very pleased if you are wearing a red gown. Red is not only an auspicious colour, it can be really stunning, glamorous and sexy on the bride.

I particularly like Dianna Agron’s Giles laser-cut gown, which is reminiscent of the traditional Chinese paper-cutting. Talk about going back to our Chinese roots and culture!


We can also steal some hair and makeup ideas from the red carpet.

I love the magenta lip colour on Shailene Woodley. Brides, a statement lip colour can really inject personality to the usual, romantic white gown!

在颁奖典礼当中,除了关心谁是赢家之外,最令人茶余饭后的话题就是女明星的打扮。即将披上嫁衣的女生们,不妨参考这些女明星在红地毯上高贵的穿着打扮,从中吸取一些礼服的灵感。本人特别喜欢Dianna Agron艳红色的Giles晚礼服,似乎受到华人剪纸艺术的影响,非常有符合传统以及喜气的感觉。相信,新娘们若选择类似的晚礼服,肯定能够取悦传统的长辈们,公公婆婆们一定笑得合不拢嘴。
