2012 January 4, Wednesday

It’s 2012!  And I’m happy to start the year with my work on International Supermodel Du Juan for the cover of Style magazine.

Sept 17.  Du Juan, among many other celebrities, was in Singapore for the official opening of the 1st Louis Vuitton Maison Store in Southeast Asia and I think the first Island Maison in the world.  And Style had the honour of photographing her for their cover and fashion spread the next day.

It was my first time doing meeting her and doing her face for the opening and she was so soft spoken and unpretentious.  We discussed how the makeup should be and she was really a pro.  She’s been there, done that and she knows she can carry off almost any style of makeup so she just wanted to look natural and kinda left it to me.

After makeup was done, she went to get ready for the soirée and the next time I saw her was at the party itself.

The following day at the shoot.  She just oozed elegance from every pore of hers.  Must be the 9 years of ballet training she had that she had such grace and poise.  FYI, she became too tall for ballet and had to quit and ended up modelling.

So here are the pictures.  Hope you like them…

P.S. I Silk You by Hermès

2009 October 27, Tuesday

This evening, many of us will gather at House at Dempsey to celebrate the launch of the P.S. I Silk You project spearheaded by Madeleine Ho of Hermès Singapore.

Local personalities have had their own postcards printed and sent to friends telling them how much they mean to them and probably some fond memories of their relationships.  These cards are available in sets of 10 at SGD50 per set with proceeds benefitting Beautiful People.

Beautiful People is a volunteer platform that connects professionals and the skilled with teenage girls from various voluntary welfare organisations, to positively impact lives through mentoring, life-skills, development, work exposure and friendship.  For more information please visit http://www.beautifulpeople.org.sg

There’ll also be an exhibition of these postcards and a studio along Orchard Road (in front of Wisma Atria and Ngee Ann City) 30 October – 15 November 2009.  At the studio, you can experience ways of wearing Hermès silk.  A styling team and photographers will be present to help produce your own set of cards.  Go have fun and contribute to Beautiful People at the same time!

Below is a picture of my postcard.  🙂

Thank you Madeleine for having me involved and Wee Khim for taking my picture so nicely!

P.S. I Silk You!
