Taiwanese native, Kang Chun Lin, is the designer behind the international formalwear company Enzoani. The company consists of five separate collections—Enzoani, Blue by Enzoani, Modeca, Love, and Love 16. From your prom to your wedding, Enzoani has you covered. Known for their lace and the quality of their materials (all of their crystals are Swarovski), Enzoani creates pieces that not only look beautiful but also feel luxurious. Designer Kang Chun Lin took some time to talk with me about his career and the inspiration for his 2013 collections.
The Pretty Little Liars actress, Shay Mitchell graces the cover of the renowned Seventeen Magazine for the January 2012 Prom Issue. Mitchell, previously featured in our Fall ’10 Issue, models fabulous designs by Jovani whose prom line commonly consists of animal print, loud vivacious colors and bejeweled trims.
Mitchell does a great job in displaying the dresses as fun, youthful and suitable for dance-floor activity; an indirect antithesis to earlier years’ trend of puffy prom dress disasters. ABC Family’s sexy Filipino and Scottish/Irish actress cites her prom photo mantra as “always have fun,” because a smiling face always looks good on camera. With these dresses, young teens everywhere will want to do nothing else but that. At least, that is what Mitchell makes us believe with her very charming and flirtatious photo spread.
It’s time for that annual rite of passage: prom season!

Each summer, moviegoers form lines at the theaters to be the first to see the newest crop of action-packed-hilarity-inducing flicks. For many it’s just something to do; for others it’s an addiction. And Hollywood doesn’t exactly make it easy for them to break the habit. Since the first summer blockbuster hit of yesteryear (thanks to Steven Spielberg’s Jaws), the movies have gotten bigger and better throughout the years (e.g., Independence Day, Iron Man, The Dark Night, Inception). But films with smaller budgets have also found their way into the spotlight (think Knocked Up and (500) Days of Summer).
This summer, the storylines of your favorite movies will continue, while new ones will be introduced hoping the marquee names catch your eyes. (Pick up our Summer 2011 issue, out in early June, for a full list of all the must-see summer movies!) Meanwhile, here’s a list of some pre-summer releases starring your favorite AA celebs (and some newcomers) — from Ken Jeong to Maggie Q – to whet your appetite.
When our sister publication, KoreAm, announced that they wanted to publish Awkward old prom photos, I dug up my old photo album to see if I could contribute to the awkwardness.
Lo and behold:
Yes, that is a lot of Asians.
So, like, this photo is not too bad, right? But I’m Janice Jann and I can’t not have an awkward moment. Hence, my awkward story. I went to prom sophomore year with my friend, Tim (who happens to have the same birthday as me, but that’s not the awkward part) and his group of friends. Unbeknownst to me, this guy (circled below)…
…would end up as my boyfriend a year later. He was also my prom date for two more years. That year, he went with a girl also named Janice. Awkward, right? Right? Right? Right?
Anyway, if you want to relive the good ol’ days, send KoreAm your awkward hs photos and it could get published in their mag! More info here.
