Yellow in Chinese culture is the colour of royalty. Kris Aquino is not Chinese royalty but she’s practically a queen in the Philippines and she plays a princess in Crazy Rich Asians. So it’s fitting that she wore yellow to the premiere last night. Of course she’d be in yellow. The only one in yellow. Full Article

Hi Duana,    I need some help! I am pregnant with my first child, a boy. For the last couple of years my go-to boy name has been Noel, pronounced the English way, like 'knoll'. While I have been very open to other names and have narrowed down a list to about 5-6 other possibilities, it's the one I keep going back to. Full Article

This outfit on Jennifer Lopez isn’t, like, a Hall of Fame entry or anything. It’s a good outfit though. And the reason I want to highlight it is for the white pants.  But let’s start with the blouse. I love a high collar blouse. I love the vibrant colours in this high collar blouse. Full Article

Hey Duana! (My cousin) and her husband have been obsessing over names for their 2nd baby girl, due in August, and are really stuck. I've tried to jump in with suggestions, but really nothing feels "just right." They have a 2 year old, Alivia Nicole, and a multi-syllable last name that can sound harsh/strong (starts with a P). Full Article

Is this a jumpsuit? It may be a two-piece. Whatever it is, it’s great on her. And a relief because I have not at all been into anything she’s worn so far on The Spy Who Dumped Me press tour. Boring, boring, boring gowns.  This pinstriped situation though…  The pattern itself is sharp. Full Article

The dress Alison Brie is wearing here isn’t much. I mean it’s fine. It’s just not something I would pause over. The dress is not the outfit. Or, rather, the dress is not what makes the outfit stand out. The reason this outfit stands out, to me, is because the dress is worn over a plain white t-shirt. Full Article

Hi Duana, I'm expecting my second soon (the third week of July!), and am at a loss for names. Our first is named Beverly, which we're delighted with - not only because it honours a grandmother that I was close with, but because it seems to hit the right mark between vintage but not too popular. Full Article

Sasha Finds: Matching separates

Sasha Posted by Sasha at July 27, 2018 19:47:37 July 27, 2018 19:47:37

One of the most popular looks dominating the summer season has to be matching separates. It’s the simplest way to put an outfit together with zero brain power. There are a slew to choose from, but my current love is from a new brand from the west coast: Albedo the Label... Full Article

It’s not easy to dress head-to-toe in one label. You know who does this often? Crazy Rich Asians. With mixed results.  Here’s Taraji P Henson in full Gucci – the dress, the belt, the shoes. You like or you mad?  I like. But I may be biased because I’m not only partial to Gucci I’m also partial to the work of Taraji’s stylist, Jason Bolden. Full Article
