Celebs came out to celebrate Audrey’s Fashion Night Out this year and we made sure to ask them the tough questions.
Thinkers like “would you rather be good looking or a good dresser” and “what’s your biggest vice?”
Some gave heartwarming answers (PK Kim said, “a good personality” Aww…) and others were random fun (Jack Yang wants to go naked!)
Find out the rest below.
Audrey Asks: Would you rather be good looking or a good dresser?
“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.
Teen shows seem to offer richer opportunities for young Asian American actors these days. But what’s it like actually being “that Asian on that show”? We find out from actresses Ashley Argota, Jolene Purdy and Nikki Soohoo.

We were fortunate enough to hold Audrey Magazine‘s spring feature roundtable discussion at the most awesome venue: The Royal/T Cafe, Store, Open Artspace in Culver City, Calif.

What are your thoughts on the new cover?
Deciding what to wear to an event can be a grueling task. Do you overdress? Underdress? Do you wear your favorite classics or try something trendier?
And in the case of a fashion show, the age old question can be, do you go with black or color?
Through my red carpet corresponding, I’ve found most celebs sticking to the classic black for the evening. Nevertheless, some found great ways to spruce up a basic. But is it better than donning a bright hue? Let’s take a look at the competition.
Serena Yang sassed up her LBD with geometric gems on the shoulder blades and killer shoes.
On any other man, this outfit would look a bit frumpy and hobo-ish but Jack Yang is not any other man. Blackjack!
Pro ping pong player (dude, I know,right?) Soo Yeon Lee kind of has this Halloween witchy costume thing going on but she’s dang gorgeous so she pulls it off.
Love Karin Anna Cheung’s blingin’ chains and hot skirt.
Lina So looks classy and elegant…and kind of out of place at this event!
Nikki Soohoo’s white stripes brings a stark contrast to her black strapless.
Ashley Jones supports designer Jenny Han with a jewel-toned purple cocktail that looks comfy and stylish.
James Kyson Lee had a flight to NY that evening which may explain why he was so warmly dressed for the warm evening. Nonetheless, shnazzy scarf!
Lynn Chen sports a casual maroon top. We were more in love with her fabulous professional do. The first time she ever got her hair done for an event!
Mayleen Ramey looks super Californian cool in this breezy sundress and flat sandals. ROck ‘em girlfriend!
Michelle Phan’s blue gem-toned cocktail was a nice contrast to the red carpet.
Paperdoll’s unique style is shown through each members’ different fashion choices.
Sheetal Sheth rocked her gunmetal gray jumpsuit.
So what do you think? Is it cooler to stay in edgy black for the evening or don a bright hue? If you want my opinion…
I wore this for the evening (pictured here interviewing Justin Chon). So I say: viva la color!
