Memorial Day is around the corner and people everywhere are rejoicing. Why? We get a three-day weekend. Now that you have some time, how about spending your weekend doing the things you always put off? Admit it, you have a giant list of things that you never seem to find time for. Here's what we have in mind: 1. Work Out. Every January, gyms are filled with people motivated to begin their new years resolution. By May, this motivation has usually died.
Diary from Cannes 2013: Day 4 May 19, 2013: The sun came out on Sunday, and so did... every single Asian film that I wanted to see. What I got used to very quickly as a first time Cannes attendee (with a low-priority press badge) is that every single day, I'd look through the list of hundreds of press screenings, competition screenings, and market screenings; plan my day in at least three different formations amidst much confusion and indecision; and then when I finally decided on my schedule, at least a third of it would fall through for some reason or another (screening full, interview...
A new reality show, Roll Models, is coming your way. From the producers of K-TOWN, this show takes a deeper look into the Asian American youth culture of Southern California. In particular, Roll Models focuses on the world of import cars, modeling, and go-go dancers. The show will feature well-known import models such as Nikita Esco, Michelle Yee, Gina Darling, Beckie Joon, Danielle Lo and Melyssa Grace. We are told to expect a lot of drama from these strong-willed girls who are not afraid to get in your face. Already, the show has gathered quite the buzz and people have been more than...
The release of The Hangover Part III couldn't have come at a better time. We're due for another Daily SHAG (Smoking Hot Asian Guy) and who better than The Hangover's Peter Jae (you may remember him from one of our favorite series K-Town Cowboys!), who worked as a stuntman for the film. Peter is also currently working on stunts for the upcoming Michael Mann film, Cyber, starring Chris Hemsworth, Viola Davis, Tang Wei, and Wang Lee Hom. If you happen to be a fan of abs, you're in for a treat! Click on for more pics:
Technology has come quite a long way. Just ten years ago, texting was not a main form of communication, we had to actually remember phone numbers, and we went to the library to get information. Now, we live in a society of smart phones, gps systems, and social media. But apparently, we're not stopping there. Trying to make its way to the top of innovative technology is the process of doll cloning. Said to be perfect for the "tech-savvy ego-fetishist" individual, Japan's Clone Factory specializes in 3-D printing of human faces. For the price of $1300, you can now place your face onto a doll's...
This week, Forbes Magazine published their list of The World's 100 Most Powerful Women 2013, their annual list of the impactful women from seven categories: billionaires, business, lifestyle (including entertainment and fashion), media, nonprofits and NGOs, politics and technology. The list was determined using three metrics: money, media presence and impact (please go here for a more in-depth explanation of their methodology). This year, 21 Asian women (2 are Asian American) are featured on the list, with mainly businesswomen and politicians ranking on the list, marking a very strong...
Complicated love triangles, near-death experiences, and endless tears? If this sounds familiar, your relationship may just be liken to some of our favorite Asian Dramas. Check the signs below: 1. You receive piggyback rides. This is often when you're too drunk to walk, but not too drunk to divulge some of your deepest secrets.
You know you’re hot when pictures of you are upsetting malls all over America.
Posters of Nikita star (and former Audrey cover girl) Maggie Q- and her smokin’ guns and gams -have been pulled off several malls and shopping areas across America as supervisors are afraid of the images being too sexy and fiery. According to Variety, the shots of Q in a leather outfit seated with machine guns have been turned down by various shopping outlets, including the Grove in LA. Places in New York, Chicago and Illinois also passed on the image, allowing a replacement ad of the actress wearing a long red gown, holding a machine gun to be shown instead.
I dont particularly find these images too revealing. Victoria’s Secret ads show more than this! What do you think about all this brou ha ha? Much ado about nothing or a justified cause for concern? Either way, generating more buzz for the already killer-looking show is sure to be good for Nikita when it premieres on the CW on September 9.
More coverage of Maggie Q and her new show can be found in Audrey’s Fall issue.
Just because summer is quickly winding down doesn’t mean there aren’t great events out there to enjoy. If you live in or will be in the San Francisco area later this month, then you must check out the outdoor screening of Howl’s Moving Castle by Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away, Ponyo).
Bring your family and friends and join the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) and the Japantown Merchants Association at the Japantown Peace Plaza (Post Street at Buchanan Street) on Sunday, September 19, 2010 at 8:30 pm. This event is free for everyone and early arrival is highly suggested as seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
Academy Award-winning director Hayao Miyazaki enhances his legendary reputation as one of the world’s most visionary filmmakers with this amazing animated adventure. Howl’s Moving Castle follows the story of Sophie, an 18-year-old girl who toils in the hat shop opened years ago by her late father. Often harassed by local boys, Sophie is one day unexpectedly befriended by Howl, a strange but flamboyant wizard whose large house can travel under its own power. However, the Witch of the Waste is displeased with Sophie and Howl’s budding friendship, and turns the pretty young woman into an ugly, old hag. Sophie takes shelter in Howl’s castle and attempts to find a way to reverse the witch’s spell with the help of Calcifer, a subdued but powerful demon who exists in the form of fire, and Markl, who protects the four-way door that can instantly whisk visitors to other lands and dimensions.

I think fanny packs are the most convenient things in the world. For one, you would never injure your shoulders or your arms lugging a heavy bag around. For two, you would never just leave it anywhere because it can safely and conveniently be snugly around your waist. And for three, your arms would be free to do things such as lugging around books, giving other people hugs and snapping pictures.
So who’s with me on the fanny pack revolution? Can I get a yeah-ah?!
At the Americana at Brand in Glendale, Calif., I found myself holding a large styrofoam board to help Audrey Magazine‘s staff photographer Audrey Cho shoot Courtney Jane, our cover model. It wasn’t that hot, but I found myself perspiring in my skinny jeans, standing in the sun for so long.
This was my first photo shoot, and it was cool to see how the issue was slowly being put together. Chriselle had artfully put together standout outfits while Courtney Jane was getting her makeup and hair done. The Americana also had residences surrounding the main plaza, so we found ourselves getting ready for the shoot in one of the homes on the third floor. We had a balcony that had a nice view of the fountain and the surrounding stores.
The dressing area was girl heaven. There was jewelry spread out all over the coffee table in the living room, shoes of all sorts lined neatly against the wall, and a rack waiting to break from the weight of all the clothes hanging from it. Bags spilled over the counter, and I carefully stood back, afraid my klutzy side would emerge and ruin thousands of dollars worth of fashion and accessories.
We shot at multiple locations, all scattered and tucked into the nooks and crannies of the Americana. Many people stopped to take a peek at the production, with Courtney Jane at the center of it all, modeling the clothes. All in all, it was a pretty cool day.
Here it is — our Fall 2010 issue. Keep an eye out in your mailbox for your copy! And if you don’t subscribe to Audrey, do it now so you don’t miss out!
OOoh! It’s gold! It’s silver! It’s shiny! It’s pretty! This gold and silver bars necklace from Aiko Designs takes me back to the days of my girlhood when I read Sweet Valley High books (remember them?). I remember how Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield were always described as wearing these delicate “lavalieres” that they got as presents from their parents and I always wanted one! I’d imagine what they wore might look something like this one. Dude, how cool is that? If you get this, you could look like the girls from Sweet Valley High! You know that’s cool.
In our Fall 2010 issue, we highlight comedian and actress Margaret Cho‘s foray into music with her debut album Cho Dependent. Check out her first video off her album, “I’m Sorry” featuring Andrew Bird. It’s hilarious!
If you wanna catch Cho singing “I’m Sorry” (and other equally shocking songs like “My Puss” and “Eat Shit and Die”), be sure to see her live on her Cho Dependent North American stand-up tour, going on now.
As a part of her Cho Dependent tour, Cho is offering 10 VIP packages to her fan club members in each city. The package includes show tickets, an autographed DVD and a backstage meet and greet and photo opportunity with Margaret at the show. All the proceeds of the VIP packages will go to the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies, a charity Cho selected after she visited the devastation in Mississippi and the Gulf Coast area earlier this year.
Cho is touring now through December, all over the U.S. and Canada, including a stop on November 5 at the New York Comedy Festival, presented in association with Comedy Central, at The Beacon Theatre. Check out her official website to see when she comes to a venue near you and how to get in on a VIP package.
My mother would love this product. Lavere Natural Ant-Aging SOLUTION Facial Toner gently refreshes and cleanses the skin without stripping away natural oils. Ideal for those who have dry/mature skin. The formula has a soothing, anti-bacterial organic aloe vera and pore-cleaning clover flower that purifies the skin. It’s a mild toner designed for skin 45 and older.
If you want to show your mama some love, I think this will do the trick.
When Audrey Got Angry, an Awesome evening happened!
Thanks to everyone who made it out Saturday night to the opening weekend of The People I’ve Slept With for Audrey Gets Angry, a q&a and after party hosted by Audrey Magazine and Angry Asian Man. (And Lynn Chen for a blog shout-out afterwards, woot woot!)
We hope you had as fab an evening at Libertine on Sunset as we did!
Judging by the amazing turnout (packed house!), we’re pretty sure you did as well.
Stars Karin Anna Cheung and Lynn Chen will also be part of our star-studded lineup on the catwalk for Audrey’s Night Out.
Audrey hopes to see you at our next event!
If you have any pictures or stories of the night or comments on how to improve on our events, let us know! Share a comment below. Photos by Helen Wong, Andrea Krauss (and my iPhone).
We knew Indian British actress Archie Panjabi was getting some serious buzz for her steal-the-show role of tough-talking investigator Kalinda in CBS’s hit “The Good Wife.” Now she’s won outstanding supporting actress in a drama series for her role! Here she is wearing Tadashi Shoji at the Emmy Awards last night.
And also congrats to Padma Lakshmi’s show Top Chef, which won best reality competition program.
