Tom Ford SS16: When Fashion Meets Music

5 Oct 2015 by Arissa Ha

We’re no strangers to Lady Gaga’s eccentric sense of style, and the injection of high-fashion into her music videos (remember Alexander McQueen’s Plato Atlantis collection in ‘Bad Romance?), but what happens when fashion-designer-cum-rock-star Tom Ford teams up with her to present his new Spring Summer 2016 Womenswear collection?

Tom Ford, who famously injected sexiness into Gucci during his 10-year stint as the Creative Director, has brought new life into spring summer fashion presentations with a video directed by Nick Knight, and starring none other than Lady Gaga. Being a fashion video, there were of course models like Ju Xiao Wen, Mica Arganaraz and Lexi Boling strutting down the “runway” to the tunes of Chic’s ‘I Want Your Love’ performed by Lady Gaga, and showing off Tom Ford’s designs which exuded lived-in-chic transformed into night time glamour.

Even for regular people who hardly stop to ponder about fabrication and silhouette of clothes, it’s hard to ignore that catchy music, dancing models and Lady Gaga, can somehow make fashion more approachable.

The beauty of this video is not only the perfect marriage between fashion and music, but actually a classy and beautiful way for every one to access fashion. Who needs live streams of fashion shows? Give us a bunch of models dancing with Lady Gaga any day!

Swimwear Guide for All Body Types

18 Jun 2015 by Juliette Lim

Ladies, summer is here and it is time to hit the waters! We give you tips on choosing the best swimwear for your body type. You’re welcome! 

Large Bust

People in this category tend to be well-endowed on top so support is the key. 

Go for:

  • Suits with underwire with adjustable straps so as to provide room for extra support, the thicker the better
  • Halters or suits with high armpits and necklines
  • Suits that have the sizing of your regular bras

Avoid:

  • Ruffles or embellishments on tops to minimise focus on your chest area
  • Triangle tops or skimpy styles which lack the support you need

Small Bust

Probably an A or B cup, you will not need any extra support. Instead, opt for swimwear that creates an illusion of a larger chest.

Go for:

  • Bikinis with minimal coverage i.e. triangle tops, bandeaus
  • Embellished details or bold prints to enhance focus on your chest
  • Padded or push up tops to give your bust a little cleavage – if you are feeling sexy

Avoid:

  • Tops with no support

Athletic

A toned and straighter figure with fewer curves, explore styles that will flaunt your frame and show off your toned lower half. 

Go for:

  • Tops and bottoms with prints, embellishments or ruffles to create a curvy illusion and add a feminine flair
  • Monokinis or cutouts one piece
  • Tie sides bikini bottoms

Avoid:

  • Bandeaus, boy shorts or shapeless tanks

Tummy

Most of your weight is concentrated in the middle so if you are a little tad conscious of it, you may want to keep a look out on suits that will help mask that.

Go for:

  • High-waisted bottoms or tankini to smooth out your middle. Good news, they are super trendy right now!
  • Swimwear with shirring details which not only hides the bulge perfectly but it also creates a waistline around your stomach

Avoid:

  • Tight fitting one piece
  • Skimpy bottoms

Curvy/ Hour glass

People in this category tend to have wider hips, thighs, fuller bust and butt. To accentuate the shape of this body type, swimwear that highlight your curves while providing the right support and coverage you need are your best friends. 

Go for:

  • Small prints or solid colors
  • Underwire bikinis for support

Avoid:

  • Monokinis
  • String tops or bottoms that accentuates your widest areas       

Pear Shape

A little similar to curvy, people with this body shape tend to have larger hips and thighs but smaller on top. To flaunt your figure in the best way possible, try to balance your proportions while getting sufficient coverage for your lower half. You may want to focus on accenting your top half instead. 

Go for:

  • Plunging neckline or bold prints
  • Asymmetrical suits
  • Colorblocking or retro suits

Avoid:

  • Printed bottoms
  • Boy shorts which direct attention to your thighs

Straight / Boy Shape

Skinny throughout your body, you can either go skimpy or try to create the curves you wish you had. 

Go for:

  • Ruffles or padded tops and bottoms to give your bust and butt an extra lift
  • String bikini to flaunt your slim figure

Avoid:

  • Patterns that will emphasize your straight frame i.e. vertical stripes
