So, did you manage to catch the first episode of the Malaysian version?
I was quite impressed: it was shot well and most of the 15 designers were able to express and show off some of their skills. There were a few hits and misses, though. And the presentation was a little stilted, but I guess it’s just the first episode and it can and will get better in the following weeks.
The models, are of course another story. Where did they come from? All with immediately forgettable faces, and not a single one amongst them who would launch a million ships. They hardly made an impression on the runway, and most of them looked too scared to be there in the first place.
In addition, the participating designers need some training: in speaking and dressing. Can’t believe how inarticulate some of them are, despite the show being in Bahasa Malaysia and English. And some of them, what were they thinking of when they put on their own outfits before the judges. In the fickle world of fashion, it’s all about first impressions. Now, if it was me, Coco, who was called to present, I’d certainly know what I’d wear, even if I can’t thread a needle to save my life.
Anyway, who are your favourite personalities on the show? The inimitable Bernie Chan, the oh-so-serious Peter Lum or the sexiest Datuk in the country - Bernard Chandran? I have a thing for titles, I must admit!

Of course, the most important question is did Anizam Yusof, of the ‘shirt-dress’ confusion, deserve to be booted out? He seemed as perplexed, and I seriously think one or two of the other designers should have been kicked out first!

And for a ‘beauty queen’ like me that means more shopping and a whole season to plan and design my looks.
First off, Lancôme’s Fall Collection is about the mystery that surrounds an enigmatic heroine. Created be Gucci Westman Neville, the brand’s international make-up artistic director, this collection is inspired by an 18th century Chinese lacquered chest with a secret drawer. It was one of the Christmas gifts she received last year.
Completely intrigued and caught up the romance of femininity, she leaped to design a range that would “pay tribute to the type of woman who is totally at ease with her femininity; a beauty-lover who spends time on her make-up, turning it into an almost mystical ritual.”

But hold on to your horses, the range will not be available here until September, but this announcement is just a teaser to whet your appetite...
Look out for further up-dates soon, and you'll find out more about The Destiny Cube and a nail polish that plants a star on your nail!
