Last Friday shoe retailer Charles & Keith opened their new store in local shopping center Ngee Ann City with great applomb. For the occassion they had invited a host of regional celebrities and the press and public came out in force! I had the pleasure to attend and mingle amongst all the fashionable people. One of the lovely ladies I met is Yoshiko Kris-Webb, a writer, model, blogger and mother who wore a beautiful long gown acquired at local retailer Tangs.
I wore a new silk skirt that I bought recently in San Francisco, Cos shirt together with a Tara Locklear necklace (more on that later this week) and I premiered my colorful shoes from Chie Mihara that I found in Berlin.
As you can tell, the shop was packed.
Since Charles & Keith had invited a host of celebrities there were plenty of photographers and when a major celebrity stepped in, things got a bit frantic.
Here are just a few of the local celebrities in attendance, actresses Zoe Tay and Fann Wong.
And here is supermodel Liu Wen, the first Asian model to walk the Victoria’s Secrets fashion show. She also featured in campaigns of Burberry, Alexander and Calvin Klein, amongst others. She is pictured here with Preview Philippines editor Daryl Chang, who sported a great funky haircut!
I also like the haircut of the lady on the left. Of course all regular readers will know my friend Anja, who sported her signature colorful florals.
I enjoyed chatting with Amanda Low, who is the marketing strategist at bubbamama.com and I loved the funky outfits of both these ladies.
The lady on the right also sported one of the most forward fashion shoes of the evening. And she was actually able to walk in them!
Another celebrity that I had the pleasure of talking to was Bryan Boy. He is one of the most famous style bloggers of the internet, who gets invited to just about every major fashion show and mingles on a regular basis with the likes of Karl Lagerfield. He was actually very nice and really downplayed his celebrity when I asked him about it. He was very diplomatic in his responses to some of my questions though. When I asked him who his favorite designer was, he replied that he liked them all! I quite fancied his necklace, which was from the male line of jewellery of Charles & Keith.
After all the celebrities had arrived at the shop we went outside to a special tent that had been setup for the fashion show. Below are just a few of shoes on show. I particularly like the black and white shoes and the small booties.
After the show we got treated to champagne and some fantastic music so pretty soon we were dancing like it’s 1999. Needless to say both me and Anja had a great time!
Hope you had a good weekend too? Which celebrity would you like to meet at a party?
