The Oscars are now in full swing! Check out some of the Asian celebrities hitting the red carpet!
The 11th annual Stardust Awards honored Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Vidya Balan, and numerous others for their achievements in Hindi film this year. But who were the winners on the red carpet?
Recap some of the Golden Globes fashion from Sunday evening – all featuring some of your favorite Asian celebrities!
I have to admit, as much as I love sitcoms and scripted television shows, I cannot really bring myself to spend 3 hours watching an awards show. I’ve done it in the past, don’t get me wrong, but it is definitely not a regular pastime.
However, I do love checking out the red carpet fashions and this year’s ladies seemed extra-impeccably-dressed. Could good taste finally be coming back in for Hollywood? Let’s take a look at some of the fashionable Asians strutting their stuff.

Audrey talks style with fashion It-girl actress Kelsey Chow.

It’s not just academics that Kelsey Chow is immersed in as a sophomore at Columbia University. “Living in New York has given me a much greater appreciation of shoes and bags and how they can enhance or complete the look,” says the 19-year-old, who is of Chinese, English and Native American descent.
With 2011 Cannes Film Festival still underway, stars have been popping up like tulips in glamorous red-carpet wear.
I’m happy to say that most are looking mighty fine and elegant. I mean, take Audrey‘s Summer 2011 cover girl, Li Bing Bing (above). How gorgeous (and prom queen-ready) does she look in this sky blue swan Georges Chakra couture?
Vanessa Hudgens and Jamie Chung showed their style prowess while promoting their new movie Sucker Punch, hitting the red carpet in an array of beautiful gowns and minis. What makes their red carpet moments so noteworthy is each girl’s distinct styles. Vanessa rocked the boho chic and Jaime kept it elegant and fresh. Check out Audrey‘s picks for their top three looks from their world press promotion.
Sucker Punch LA Premiere, March 23
Hailee Steinfeld’s tour-de-force performance as Mattie Ross in the Coen brother’s highly-acclaimed True Grit this year proves that the 14-year-old is a an acting force to be reckoned with. Steinfeld, who’s father is Jewish and mother is of Filipino-African American descent, has been racking up awards all season long.
Her red carpet appearances indicate another thing: this teenager is also a fashion force to be reckoned with! Let’s check out some of Hailee’s hottest styles.
At the New York premiere of True Grit, Steinfeld perfectly dressed her age in bouncy waves and a sparkly mini.
Steinfeld channeled True Grit‘s western wear in this black Victorian-styled dress and booties. We’re not totally digging the fuzzballs though.
The actress showed true grit by pairing turquoise pumps with a plum-hued frock. Simple but classy!
We wish we looked like this when we were 14! A sleek shift matched her sleeker side ponytail and even though the former model is already 5’11,” she was still daring enough to go higher with black strappy platforms.
This nude one-shoulder gave Steinfeld a total goddess-y feel.
The Golden Globes nominee was the epitome of grace in a white gown and tight ponytail. Forget Black Swan, we want a white one!
We only have one complaint about Steinfeld’s recent Oscar nod — that she wasn’t nominated for Best Actress. (Steinfeld is in the Supporting category.) But we still can’t wait to see what the stylish star is going to don for the biggest night in Tinseltown. And we’re hoping she heads home that night with the best accessory of all, the golden statue.
It’s been a while since a movie has really tickled my fancy but when I walked out of a sneak peek of The Green Hornet, I could not wait to tell all my friends to get the car ready for their next movie night.
Starring Seth Rogen and Taiwanese pop star Jay Chou, The Green Hornet– not to be confused with that other Green movie also coming out this year with sexyman Ryan Reynolds — tells of a spoiled son of a media tycoon who decides to fight crime by pretending to be bad guys. Chou is his sidekick-who-really-does-all-the-work, Kato.
Directed by Michael Gondry (after HK superstar Stephen Chow left the job) and co-written by Rogen, I was surprised by how good the film was. The lines were funny but sweet, the action left me at the edge of my seat and the casting was excellent, albeit unexpected. Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds) killed it (pun, har har) as the villain and Rogen had you rooting for his bratty character.
But I was most impressed by Jay Chou’s Kato — a fully fleshed-out Asian character who was mistaken as the sidekick but was the real hero of the show. The Green Hornet showed off Chou’s singing, lady-wooing, comedic and ass-kicking skills. That’s a lot of skills! I didn’t even care that I could hardly understand Chou’s English half the time. (This is Chou’s American film debut so we forgive him.)
The reviews are also rolling in and they’re really good!
But you don’t have to believe our critiques of the film. Let’s have some of the stars convince you.
The Green Hornet Hollywood premiere will be streaming live tonight at 9:30PM EST/6:30 pm PST and you can catch it right on Audrey’s website. Check back then. Rogen, Chou, Cameron Diaz, Michel Gondry, Jonah Hill, Judd Apatow, Stephen Lang, Anna Faris and Tom Green are just some of the stars slated to appear on the red carpet.
Boy, did the stars shine bright at KoreAm Journal‘s Unforgettable gala — and 20th anniversary celebration! — last month. Audrey checks out some of the stylish studs that strutted down the red carpet.
JuJu Chang and her clan were adorable. Look at those matching smiles!
Singer Ameriie looked like an angel. Ameriie also presented an Unforgettable award to baseball great, Chan Ho Park.
Lovely Lindsay Price (a former Audrey cover girl) nearly missed the party. She thought the gala was held at the Century Plaza Hotel in Century City, not Park Plaza in downtown Los Angeles. Despite the tardiness, Price was still red carpet ready.
Nicole Bilderback’s saucy red number lit up the winter night. Loving her matching red lips too!
Grace Park is a goddess. But you already knew that.
Rockin’ sneaks with cool tux? Check. Effortlessly chic one shoulder cocktail dress? Check. Super cazch semi-prom pose? Check. I wish I was this stylish when I was a teen!
They may be in basic black but Lisa Ling’s dewy, to-die-for cheekbones keeps her and hubby Paul Song’s ensemble anything but boring.
With that steely stare and jawline, who cares what actor Tim Kang is wearing?
