Emotional Show at Chanel Winter Fashion Show – A First Without Karl Lagerfeld

Last fashion show by Karl Lagerfeld is everywhere on the internet nowadays. Chanel lives on, yet the great designer who has been for 36 years linked to the house, has died. Watching the show, despite all the goodies happening in there, which I’ll be going in detail in second, I felt sad. Almost as if with his departure, Karl took with him the thrill and all the magic that he has built.

It’s funny how the last show under his name happened in a Switzerland like winter resort setting, Switzerland being Coco’s eternal place for rest. As for the show, magic as always. You could almost feel the breeze of icy air you would normally experience in a winter resort. And there, right in the middle of the fluffy street, the models walked beautifully in gorgeous coats and wide leg trousers. The collection carries an oversized, men’s style tailoring with chunky ’80s and even ’90s style logo jewelry look. The tweed shares the runway with knitted skirts and sweaters. And there’s the white. Simply mesmerizing, full white silhouettes, in either a dress or some fancy look with pants, top and coat, took the lead of the show. Even actress Penelope Cruz joined the fairies, dressed in a fluffy white dress and white winter shoes.

Speaking of celebs, there’s nothing better in fashion like a Chanel front row. Blackpink’s Jennie, Nana Komatsu, Kristen Stewart, Monica Bellucci, Claudia Schiffer, Gwei Lun-Me and more.

Jason Derulo’s Amazing Collab With LAY and Boy Band ‘NCT 127’

Jason Derulo pulled out a collab to be remembered between him, LAY and NCT 127. ‘Let’s Shut Up & Dance’ sounds like a good invitation, and obviously, we are not going to refuse it. As for LAY, the singer is doing pretty well in his solo career, considering he is also busy with his EXO projects. Congrats to boy band NCT 127 too. They look amazing in the video, which btw, have you seen it? Those video effects, damn! LAY’s sensual voice has been catching attention, and when I say ‘sensual’ I am just saying it the way it sounds to me. And it’s all good and fun. I am really enjoying this track and I love the music video.

Boy Band BTS Wins and Performs on Stage at the Billboard Music Awards 2018

South Korean boy band BTS for the second time on the red carpet at Billboard Awards seems to me like an ethereal experience. The group released just in time for the awards their Fake Love track from Love Yourself album, released May the 18th. I have already pressed the replay button countless times on their music video, but let’s talk more about what happened at the Billboards. The boys took home the award for Top Social Artist for the second year in the row and even performed on stage (wow-yes!; and yeah, I’ve watched that too), achieving a well-deserving first K-pop act to ever perform at the BBMAs. That’s an awesome way to spend your time at such an event as Billboard Awards; the boys can only be proud of such success, which now they can share with the supportive fan base, aka Army.

Fashion-wise, I have to start with Jin. He looked impeccable on the red carpet, wearing a shirt, tie, vest and matching pants next to white sneakers. Very cool, effortless yet fashionable. This look suits him like a glove. As a group, the band gave out a chill vibe, with casual shirts, jeans, white sneakers, belts, and scarfs. Jimin, RM and J-hope changed the sneakers for loafers, adding diversity to the general look. Love them!

 

In-Short New Year’s Eve 2018 Around the Globe

Ready or not, a brand new year took the official control of our magic reality, giving us new hopes for new beginnings, second chances, true love, wealth, better health and so on. Where were you when the midnight rang? If you care, I was facing the most incredible fireworks show from the coolest view. And that’s that.

Worldwide, artists had it like artists, meaning traveling and entertaining. Hopefully, there was enjoyment involved as well. Speaking of which, on-air correspondent Maria Menounos got married to her longtime partner, Keven Undergaro, the couple making it official in Times Square during the live broadcast of Fox’s New Year Eve live broadcast. Despite the cold, Menounos kept the traditional attire, looking gorgeous in her embroidered bridal dress. Congratulations to the newlyweds!

Times Square was the place to be on 31 December, as South Korean boy band BTS performed at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest, next to a pretty fancy list: rapper and boyfriend of singer Halsey, G-Eazy (I love them together), gorgeous Hailee Steinfeld, a very casual looking Charlie Puth, Bebe Rexha, Mariah Carey, and so many more.

Paris was another great location to be, as the Arc de Triomphe took on the task of being a perfect animated canvas, changing its appearance in colorful drawings during the New Year’s Celebration on the Champs-Elysees.

Passing tradition through the door between the old and new year was preferred in many parts of the world. In Germany, winter swimmers had no ice to fight for their New Year’s Day tradition, but that did not put an end to the task. I wouldn’t go as far, but I can say Happy New Year to you, beloved citizen of Earth, wherever you are, and whatever you are doing.

MAMA 2017 Awards – Winners and More

MAMA Awards 2017 took place yesterday in Hong Kong, and boy, was it thrilling! I’ve been all embraced with my laptop, surfing from one page to another just to keep up with everything that was happening, from the red carpet arrivals to the last award on stage. Trust me, no other soap opera and especially award shows, none have made my pink heart beat as fast as it did yesterday.

This edition has felt like a change of scene, almost as if the queens and kings that ruled the Mnet Asian Music Awards stage years in a row were this time nowhere in sight. Another major change is MAMA‘s decision to host this year’s edition in three separate locations: Ho Chi Minh City – Vietnam, Osaka – Japan and Hong Kong. Artists such as Twice, Wanna One, Exo-CBX and few other more have been awarded in Japan.

Fashion-wise, I loved everything about Song Ji-hyo’s look, the actress and TV host showing off her sophisticated side in a slight cut-out dress, matched by perfect makeup and straight hair.

As for who won what, the awards brought sometimes surprised, overwhelmed faces on stage, partially thanks to the controversy happening prior to the event regarding the votes. Both Exo and BTS, the two main male groups preferred by fans for the big awards, received, let’s say, equal gratification for their hard work, with Exo winning the album of the year award and BTS receiving just right after their glorious performance, full of sweat and out of breath, their artist of the year award.

Other winners:
Twice won Song Of The Year award for “Signal”.
New Asian Artist award went to NCT 127.
The very lovely duo band Bolbbalgan4 won Best Group Vocal Performance.
Best Female Group went to Red Velvet.

There are obviously way more awards, I’m just mentioning the ones that caught my attention. It could also be that I’m in a hurry to finish this so I can search through my fridge for something tasty.

AMAs 2017 Red Carpet – Diana Ross, BTS, Pink and More

BTS’s Army’s wishes had been granted yesterday, when the 7 members – Jin, Rap Monster, Jungkook, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Suga arrived on the red carpet, ahead of their performance for AMAs 2017. Perfectly styled for their appearance and posing together, I think this event, highly public, was way easier for them to handle than their Billboard Awards show-up. This time around, all the 7 members looked more relaxed and a tiny bit more at ease with their exciting task.

More than one person appearance seemed to be the norm on the red carpet, Diana Ross’s supporting large family being the best example to mention. The artist rocked an outfit larger than life and an even bigger hat, metaphorically speaking, really in tune with the award she was there to receive – A lifetime achievement award and a tribute video doesn’t sound bad at all. She rocked the stage as well, with the help of her nephews, and by now nobody truly knows which side was the real star – the singer or her dapper grandkids.

Fashion wise I have to say I loved Pink’s grapefruit pink tulle gown, playfully touched by a few floral appliqués on the corset of the dress. A second favorite is a piece worn by Issues singer, beautiful Julia Michaels. Similar to Pink’s dress, but oh, so very different in the vibe it gives. I love the creative approach the designer took in filling the space inside the cut-out portion of the dress, which happens to be right in the middle of the chest. EDM duo group, Chainsmokers, took their red carpet looks to another level, both of them sporting well-fitted suits, with Alex rocking the tartan and Andrew the black.

Last but not least, my heart skipped a beat, or more, at the sight of Jessie James pregnant silhouette. Body goals, that’s what she inspires, among other good things, such as good hair nice makeup, great pose.

G-Dragon Wraps-Up Album Status With New Music Video Release

Officially out today, June 8th, 2017, the five tracks self-titled album “Kwon Ji Yong” of artist G-Dragon represents the perfect appetizer for concert goers, prior GD’s second world tour Act III, M.O.T.T.E, starting June the 10th at World Cup Stadium in the city of Seoul.

In this album, we get to catch up with what has been happening in GD’s life, with track “Untitled 2014” being the most suggestive of all. For this sentimental piece, the artist released a much-anticipated music video, with it officially sealing the status for the newly released album, from the studio to the and for the fans and public.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed for a music video to “Superstar”. Speaking of music videos, I’m wondering to which one was GD filming for just days ago. A glimpse of the artist’s new hairstyle made the rounds of the internet, rumored to be from a music video filming. We can only wait and see.

This recent album release is not the first musical deed we get from the artist for 2017. Singer IU surprised everyone by having GD as a guest rapper on her Palette track and earlier this year for his “OO” album, artist Zion released the “Complex” track featuring G-Dragon.

About K-pop band BTS there’s much to talk about, from their attractive visuals to how they smashed into the international music charts. This year has brought for them plenty awards and the latest win scores a huge step for the band. Winning against artists like Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber, the lovely group was preferred by an astounding 300 million votes to be the “Top Social Media Artist Awards” at the Billboard Awards 2017.

Jimin, Jin, J-Hope, Suga, V, JungKook and Rap Monster rocked the black for the occasion in personalized looks. Their fashion appearance got the Vogue talking, naming BTS the best-dressed boy-band at the BBMAs 2017.

In the accepting speech, Rap-Monster thanked the Army for their accomplishments. Besides their huge fanbase, the guys work hard. “You Never Walk Alone” was released in February 2017 as a second studio “Wings” album and with it, the band launched “Spring” and “Not Today” which became successful in several important music charts. Since then the guys kept it busy with tours, TV appearances and more touring.

Congratulations to the BTS’s seven members and their team!

 

G-Dragon’s Cool Rap Surprises With Lyrics to IU’s “Palette” Track

It happened last Friday, 21st April 2017. For the fans, it felt like a dream come true. For me too. Well, not exactly that romantic, but I am FOR SURE thrilled to hear a track where two of my favorite South Korean artists worked together.

The track, called “Palette” shares the title with the name of the album “Palette“, which is a forth Korean-language studio album for the singer IU. All the tracks are super sweet, but I believe no one was expecting such a lovely surprise. Not that she is not nice, but a collab with G-Dragon is a one of a kind thing.

If you listen to the track, you’ll find yourself slowly relaxing to IU’s seductive voice. The singer-songwriter shares personal thoughts on turning 25 in a witty manner, an expected approach, if you think of her 2015 “birthday” track, labeled “23”.

And then we have G-Dragon, a voice that’s just as appealing to the ears as IU’s.

Great collab guys!
