Posted in Celebrity & Entertainment, fashion, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Vera Wang with tags , , on August 10, 2010 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

The super stylish celebrity stylist and reality star Rachel Zoe always dressing her Hollywood star clients in famous designers like Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors to Vera Wang. With her very own unique style, her looks has been copied and emulated by many fashionistas.

In the September 2010 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, Rachel Zoe is in a stunning spread that features her with some seriously sought-after American designers. Harper’s Bazaar cleverly using the common use phrase that Rachel always use whenever she saw something super fabulous “I Die! ” and Fusing fashion and fantasy, images depict what would actually happen if the stylist to the stars really did “die” for fashion with the designers themselves going in for the kill!

Photographed by Douglas Friedman, my favorite one is the impeccably dressed Michael Kors digging Rachel’s fashionable grave, with the perfect accessories to murder! “To die for” fabulous Michael Kors high heels and handbags! (Click on the photo to see it in full size)

Michael Kors syas to the magazine: ” The perfect accessory can make the difference between looking blah and totally to die for

I also love the one of Vera Wang offering Rachel a cocktail and secretly pouring poison from her ring into the drink! haha. (Click on the photo to see it in full size)

Vera Wang tells the magazine: “I only want to kill Rachel when I don’t land one of her fabulous clients for the Oscars!”

How can we not love the photo of Marc Jacobs tied down Rachel on an electrocution chair, dipping her feet in a bucket of water and pretend to give her the “Perm” of her life! LOL (Click on the photo to see it in full size)

Marc Jacobs says to the magazine: “Rachel’s energy is electrifying…and often shocking! ”

Here is a video of behind the scene of this fabulous photoshoots!

So don’t just throw on some drab outfits to your friend’s Oscars party! So for this posting, I am choosing “Avatar” as the theme for my Oscars party tomorrow night. Here are some ideas that you can wear to look “Out of this world” fabulous.

To overcome the resistance of the planet’s indigenous population, the Na’vi, former Marine Jake Sully is sent to infiltrate the society as a part-human, part-Na’vi avatar who can operate on Pandora while Jake himself remains in a twilight sleep

Theme: Welcome to the Alien Jungle

What to wear: The cobalt blue has been one of the hottest colors of the season, many designers has use this fabulous color on their clothing & accessories for the spring summer 2010 collection.

Alexander Eagle Dress (Available @ NeimanMarcus.com)

Vibrant cobalt blue jersey dress with cap sleeves & bright red embroidery of an eagle on the back is a great choice!

Gucci Lace-Up Metal Harness Dress (Available @ Gucci.com)

This Gucci’s dress is so futuristic and “Sci-Fi” looking we think it’s super fabulous for the Avatar party!

If you just want something a little more casual or you are one of those girls that’s a little scared of wearing bright colors all over, then this McQueen cape is a perfect choice! Oversized matte jersey cape with sleeve holes at both end, vibrant mixtures of greens, yellow & turquoise tribal print, it also mimicking the planet “Pandora” beautiful landscapes!

Alexander McQueen Praying Mantis Cape (Available @ Bergdorfgoodman.com)

So now you have a fabulous dress, time to think about the rest of the party.

Love, Romance & My Favorite Romantic Movies To Celebrate Valentine’s Day

Posted in Celebrity & Entertainment with tags , , , , , , on February 5, 2010 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

 

 Ahhh…. Love is in the air…Yup, it’s that time of the year again, the valentine’s day is just around the corner! which lead me to write this posting (ok ok I confess, I am drinking captain morgan & diet coke while writing this! can I have a lil drink while fantasize about Channing Tatum? mmmkay! haha). Also what’ makes this year’s Valentine’s day extra special is that it’s on the same day as the Chinese New Year!! so it’s “Double Happiness”!

“LOVE” is something that everyone wants or dreaming about & willing to search to the end of the world to find it, That’s why all the major movie studios spends big money to crank out romantic movies to capture this almost “Dream like sensation/idea” we call “LOVE” and had us keep coming back for more! Some are romantic & funny, some you’ll need to bring a box of kleenex Tissues to the movie theater & cry your eyes out LOL. So in this posting, I will be chatting about “Love” and some of my all time favorite Romantic Movies to share with y’all !

So what is “Romance”? Historically, the term “romance” did not necessarily imply love in relationships, but rather was seen as an artistic expression of one’s innermost desires; sometimes including love, sometimes not. “Romance” in this sense can therefore be defined as attachment, fascination, or enthusiasm for something or someone. So many times in relationships we are consumed with the “romance” and think we are “IN LOVE”… maybe we should step back and think about this for a moment.

I have never been a person to really throw around that powerful 4 letter word called LOVE lightly! For me, this magical word should only be said when you really mean it, say it with the most sincere intention! using this word lightly then it will lost its “magic”! it’s just my opinion.

So here are some of my favorite romantic movies …..

The Note Book      (Click on the photo to see the movie trailer)

Simply put, The Notebook is the tale of the kind of love that most of people, including myself dream of. The perfect, everlasting, unconditional kind of love that conquers all. It is a movie that will evoke every emotion that a good, old fashioned romantic movie should. Expect plenty of tears even if you are not the kind of person who cries easily.

If you are expecting a love story with plenty of twists and turns, The Notebook is NOT it. It has a simple but beautiful story. You know exactly what’s coming but you cannot stop watching. I am not sure how many of you can convince your boyfriend or husband to watch this with you but I will say that this is the perfect movie for a girl’s night in! order some pizza, light some candles & pop open a good bottle of wine to enjoy this movie. The Notebook is a beautiful, sentimental movie…corny and mushy in parts, cliché even but I enjoyed every minute of it!

 Titanic      (Click on the photo to see the movie trailer)

There is something magical, fascinating and unforgettable about this love story. Leonardo di Caprio is the poor boy Jack, and Kate Winslet is the rich but unhappy girl Rose. They meet each other and experience a love so strong that most of us have never seen something like it. I can assure you that you will cry while watching this sad but extremely beautiful movie, which has also won 11 Academy awards.

 Brokeback Mountain      (Click on the photo to see the movie trailer)

Ah… how I love this movie!! two handsome cow boys falls in love….. I just love a hot cow boy! haha. Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal gave the Oscar worthy performance in this beautiful movie! the love between two men is no less than the traditional love that’s between a man & women. I’ve always believe LOVE is love! no matter if you are straight or gay. The sad ending always gets me! Too bad we’ve lost the super talented Heath Ledger, may he rest in peace and thank you for giving us this beautiful movie to remember you!

Sweet Home Alabama      (Click on the photo to see the movie trailer)

Reese Witherspoon plays the small town girl who moves to New York city and gets a career & became a successful fashion designer. She’s getting marry to a “JFK Jr.” kinda handsome powerful guy who loves her dearly, but first she needs to divorce her teenage love from the hometown in Alabama, which isn’t as easy as one could think. Who can resist a handsome country boy play by Josh Lucas? that piercing blue eyes, killer smile and ever so charming southern accent just makes me melt! LOL Josh! if Reese doesnt’ wanna marry you, I do ! I do!

While You Were Sleeping      (Click on the photo to see the movie trailer)

Sandra Bullock is falling in love with a man who buys subway ticket from her everyday, one day he fell in the subway rail track & become unconscious. The story gets complicated since his family thinks that she’s his girlfriend. It gets even more complicated when the guy’s brother, Bill Pullman (OMG!! I Love him in this movie… sooo handsome in a guy next door kinda way, YUM!) is falling in love with Bullock. This is a sweet and easy-going movie that you should see at least one time! as for me, I’ve seen it 10 times and at the end of the movie, I still have teary eyes!

Sleepless In Seattle      (Click on the photo to see the movie trailer)

OMG!! if you call yourself a “Romantic Comedy” fan and have not yet seen this movie, then you should be ashamed of yourself!! haha…. ok, Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan are playing the lead characters in this extremely funny and entertaining movie. This is one of those classic romantic movies that EVERYONE need to at least see it once! sniff sniff…. I LOVE this movie!

Never Been Kissed      (Click on the photo to see the movie trailer)

This is a really sweet story about a girl, played by Drew Barrymore, who has never been kissed. She meets a guy (happened to be her teacher), Michael Vartan and falls in love with him but the story is complicated. This is a movie that will make you smile and feel with the characters. It’s a terrific love story! watch out for the ending! If you didn’t laugh while having a teary eyes, then … then … you’re not human! haha! (OMG! can I say Michael Vartan is such a HOTTIE!!? everytime I saw him in this movie it makes my knees weak!!

Only You      (Click on the photo to see the movie trailer)

I love love love this movie!! I still remember the 1st time I saw it in NYC with my bestfriend Mariel at the theater at upper east side Lincoln , I cried at the end of this movie!! such a cute love story! no matter how cheesy it seems and Marisa Tome is kinda crazy to chase her Mr. Right all the way to Italy…… you have to see it! it’s magical!! ( and I LOVE her hari style!!)

Pretty Woman      (Click on the photo to see the movie trailer)

I am sure you all have seen Pretty Woman at lease once in your life. But even so, you just can’t help yourself to see it again! Julia Roberts is so full of charm and Richard Geer is so freaking handsome, and the “a normal girl meet wealthy prince charming” and turn her into a “princess” kinda cheesy story plot will still gets you everytime! ahhh, this movie brought good back high school memories….. and we all love the scene when Julia was all cleaned up and dressed in designer outfits then went back to that snobby sales girl at the Rodeo Drive store on Beverly Hills, eat this platinum card bitch ! haha

Moulin Rouge      (Click on the photo to see the movie trailer)

Beautiful costume, story & of course the stunning Nicole Kidman and super handsome Ewan McGregor stars the film. I just love musicals and this “dream-like” fantasy epic love story, especially at the end of the movie when Nicole Kidman sings to McGregor before she dies… makes me cry every time! ahhh… L’Amour L’Amour !

The Mirror Has Two Faces      (Click on the photo to see the movie trailer)

There are two things a woman knows: what she’s looking for and what she’ll settle for. I love this movie! yes, besides the DREAMY Jeff Bridges…. it’s a grown up kinda love story! of course it’s done in Barbra Streisand’s favorite story plot… ugly girl turns into a self confident beautiful woman and lands herself a handsome man! haha but seriously, it’s a beautiful love story! it’s a must see! You’ll LOVE the ending!!

Here is one of the song from the soundtrack….. perfect song for after a long day, cozy up on the sofa, drinking a cup of hot coco or glass of wine and dream about Jeff Bridges…… haha

(Click on the photo to see the movie trailer)

Girls, this magical thing we call “LOVE” is everywhere! some people search high & low but can’t seems to find it, some just met him/her at the supermarket. It happens differently for different people. We are and will forever be enthralled by it, dazzled by it. We are constantly on the look out for love. We see people love, we want the same thing ourselves. One person’s love is never the love of another. We fantasize about other people’s romance but we don’t realize that this is wrong, our own love will happen and it will never be like anyone else’s.

last nite I was web surfing and saw this very charming video presented by Vanity Fair & Banana Republic as part of the film independent’s project: Involve Program. It’s a short film about a guy name “Handsome” & a girl name “Belle” just might fall in love, if fate doesn’t get in the way first!

(Click on the photo to see the movie trailer)

so, after seeing all these romantic movies trailers, I hope your hearts are filled with love and optimistic hopeful feelings that YOU can find & have love that’s perfect for you! No matter if you are single, separated, widowed singles, or you are currently happily in love with your lover, never loose hope! Even tho I am already 37 years old, I still believes in the star, moon & magic all those good stuff! and I hope this little blog posting will inspire or re-light that “hope” for love in your heart!

To end this posting I would like to share with you this video… when you think of romance, magic & happy ending what pops into your mind usually? Disney ! I love this video, yes, it’s cheesy, pink and princessy but we all can dream a little sometimes even we are an adult already who are so busy with the daily lives & we often forget to “Dream a little” !! Enjoy!

(Click on the photo to see the video)

Remember! In order to receive love, you need to first LOVE yourself! have an open heart to welcome love into your life! If you can’t love yourself first then how do you expect others to love you right? Brightest blessing for all of you all over the world…. may you be surrounded by love every moment in your life!

XOXO

GURL! This Ain’t Yo Mama’s Disney Prince! Hunky Disney Prince Erotic Style

Posted in Celebrity & Entertainment, Disney with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 28, 2010 by Alan + Mei-Mei the pug

Remember those handsome, animated, Disney Princes you used to crush on when you were little? (Admit it ! you do! And mine very first crush was Prince Eric from Little Mermaid). Here they are again, back in full force and all sexed up in nothing but tight, small underwear, showing off their masculine muscles & “Fully Loaded” package !

Prince Eric from “Little Mermaid”

Disney is all about the princesses! And the early years of Disney Princess are usually more passive and have this mentality that one day her prince will come for her, but usually at the end in a “what took you so long” kinda rescue. I am glad now the new generations of Disney Princess are more independent & more of a “Self-Rescuing” kinda woman.

Prince Adam from “Beauty & the Beast”

But admit it, you have your eyes set on those hunky, handsome Prince and secretly envy of those Princess totally scored! Haha well these images are from an artist name David Kawena, he has artfully illustrated those Disney PRINCE in the way that none of us has ever seen before ( and was only for the eyes of those damn lucky princess who snag them in the fairy tales stories haha ).

James Marsden as Prince Edward from “Enchanted”

Oh yes!! These illustrations are getting me HOT & Bothered! Haha and I’m not ashamed! A friend of mine one day emailed me one of these drawings and I laughed so hard, yet was kinda turned on. I mean they are soooo hot!! So I had to find more and I found out it was a whole series. I can’t pick which one is my favorite! Price Eric with his Ariel “Fish Fetish” Tattoo, Hercules lookin all manly and swole,

Price Phillip and his perfectly coiffed prince hair and firm booty,

Prince Philip from “Sleeping Beauty”

Prince Naveen (from the new Disney movie Princess & the frog) killer smile and hot bod

Prince Naveen – The Frog Prince

Shang in his fighting stance….

Shang from “Mulan”

look at Phoebus from The Hunchback of Notre Dame, even tho he is not a prince but damn! That sexy goat-T facial hair and washboard abs…

Phoebus from “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”

OMG!! how can I not mention super hunky John Smith from Pocahontas….. I’ll go to England with you and be your queen!! LOL

John Smith from “Pocahontas”

Tarzan’s killer abs, I bet he can “party” like an animal! haha

Tarzan

Milo J. Thatch from “Atlantis”

David from “Lilo and Stitch”

Kocoum from Pocahontas

Jim from Treasure Island

Gaston from “Beauty & Beast”

How can we forget our arabia prince Aladdin?….. I wanna ride your magic carpet!! LOL

Aladdin

I never thought I’d be so turned on by Disney cartoon characters but now I will secretly having lustful dirty thoughts when I watch my favorite Disney princess movies! haha

We hope you enjoy as much as I did with these fabulous artworks by David Kwaena.
Come check out Luxe-Gift.com aromatherapy massage oils & candles selections and have some fun with your Prince!! Click on the photo below to see our collections of love oils!
