Asians in Fashion | Trends and Favorite Looks from Paris Fashion Week Fall 2013

Ming Xi for Jitrois Fall 2013

Out of all the fashion weeks around the world – all eyes definitely fall on Paris Fashion Week, where hot trends are picked off right off the runway. While you may not picture yourself wearing any one of these looks out on the street anytime soon, it’s always good to take note of the concepts and themes of every collection for inspiration while putting together your fall wardrobe. Some of our favorite trends that came out of Paris Fashion Week included: Stella McCartney’s “tractor soles”, menswear slacks, the return of the 1990s (think back to Courtney Love, baby doll dresses, plaid, and wet hair), and purple as a statement color.

Check out below for some of our favorite looks featuring our favorite Asian models!

Wedding Dresses Go Black With Vera Wang

If I had to choose one, this would probably be my favorite. Not that I would wear it, but I do like the two-tone to the dress with the lace overlay. The overall design is just very flattering and unique. Plus it’s the least gloomy-looking.

This would probably work better for a red carpet event in my opinion.

The dress’s silhouette and color contrast creates so much drama that it wouldn’t be easy to pull off.

All I can say is… at least it’s not all black!

This has to be my least favorite since from far it actually looks kind of cheap (sorry Vera!) and that’s not how a Vera Wang dress is supposed to look like! The details cannot be seen and the shape is not the most flattering.

Again, I feel this dress is also more appropriate for a fancy party or show rather than a wedding. Who wants to get married looking so dark and gloomy?

Who Wore What at Audrey’s Night Out 2011

“Audrey’s Night Out is filled with free booze, fashion plus lots of hot girls and guys. If you could only pick one, what would you choose?” While other people may be there for the alcohol and the hotties, I was there for the fashion. Here’s my fashion picks for the night:

1. Classic Cocktail Dresses
Simplicity speaks louder than you think. I am loving Nikki Soohoo’s cocktail dress here with the heart neckline and black and nude contrast. It hugs her in all the right places and she looks absolutely stunning.

Asian Models Round-Up: NYFW FW12

Liu Wen in Alexander Wang FW12.

Ming Xi in Badgley Mischka FW12.

Twenty-two-year-old Ming Xi found a boost in her career just two years ago and now she is one of the top Chinese models. Walking for shows such as Zac Posen, Y-3 and Badgley Mischka, she is one of the most sought out Asian models both for the runway and for print.

SHU PEI


Shu Pei in Diane von Furstenberg FW12.

Coming at a close second, Shu Pei walked almost as many shows as Liu Wen for names like Vera Wang, Michael Kors, DKNY, Herve Leger, BCBG Max Azria, J Mendel and Helmut Lang.

SO YOUNG KANG


So Young Kang in Cynthia Rowley FW12.

Making her debut runway in the US in 2010, So Young Kang now walks for over 10 shows at NYFW. This Korean model has been seen in the shows of Badgley Mischka, Cynthia Rowley, Proenza Schouler and Creatures of the Wind.

Newcomer

LINA ZHANG


Lina Zhang in Marchesa FW12.

Chinese model Lina Zhang walked the runways of 3.1 Philip Lim, Tory Burch, Marchesa, Herve Leger, Ralph Lauren and more. That’s quite an accomplishment for a relatively newcomer; she made her debut just last year.

SUNG HEE


Sung Hee in Vivienne Tam FW12.

With so many famous Chinese models, Sung Hee is one of the few top Korean models to appear in NYFW. She walked the shows of Vivienne Tam, Tory Burch and Creatures of the Wind to name a few.

SUI HE


Sui He in Donna Karan FW12

I first noticed Sui He when she walked the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Now in the recent NYFW, she has been seen in Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan, Peter Som, Helmut Lang, Proenza Schouler and more.

TIAN YI


Tian Yi in Rachel Zoe FW12.

At only 17, Tian Yi is a new, young face that we should look out for. Walking for shows such as Vivienne Tam, Rachel Zoe and Rebecca Taylor, she sure has a lot of potential to become a big name in modeling.

XIAO WEN


Xiao Wen in Jill Stuart FW12.

Last but not least, we have Xiao Wen, who’s only 19! Appearing in approximately fifteen shows, she can be seen in 3.1 Philip Lim, Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang, Jill Stuart and DKNY.
