I recently had the great pleasure to work on the Flickerfest 2013 Film Festival Trailer.  It was soo much fun.  Here is the trailer.  Enjoy!

As for the Slideshow above, I’m getting ready for the RAFW (Rosemount Australian Fashion Week).  So I’m slowly getting my wardrobe ready.  How awesome are those booties, perfect replicas of the Alexander Wangs that I couldn’t find anywhere in my size.  And the jacket, I absolutely can’t wait to wear it with some leather shorts.

See you at the RAFW

Grunging the Camel

Last night was rainy and stormy in LA so Shane and I thought it was perfect for going to the movies.  We were right cause there was hardly anyone in the theatre but man was it scary driving there and back.

For our movie date night I thought I would dress down a bit but one of the only coats I brought to suit LA weather was my gorgeous new camel coloured Zara coat.  I paired it with some of my grungy gear and I think it worked.

Shane Show – Ying & Yang

Dress pants, jeans,…  collared shirt, tee,… dress shoes, sneakers,…  what to wear for what occasion?  We’ve all been there at some point.

As the ‘Yang’ of Lenya, (‘Ying’) I recently found myself attending two red carpet premieres in one week with only one outfit for both.  Previously I may have simply said, “So be it.” but I was soon to realize why sometimes new is in fact quite important.  For the first premiere I wore black pants with a white AG dress shirt and silver, yes silver blazer/sport jacket. Everything went as expected and all in all we had a great evening out.  However, when the second premiere came round only a few days later I knew I could not possibly wear the same outfit and risk photographers getting the same snap only a few days apart.

Here in lies the talent and foresight of Lenya. On a previous day of shopping Lenya had me step out of my comfort zone and try on an AG black velvet smoking jacket and rather funky Master Slave dress shirt. Needless to say, they both made it to my closet along with a ‘safer’ grey AG jacket with black piping.

I now found myself walking the carpet hand in hand, ying and yang, wearing my velvet smoking jacket, Master Slave shirt and simple black pants and shoes.  As we approached the cameras the main cast were having group shots and to my disbelief I saw that one of the lead actors was wearing the exact same ‘safer’ option jacket I had bought.  A breath of relief passed my lips as I now understood that not only did I have to wear something new but also have that foresight to wear something that both looks great and no one else would likely be wearing.

With a knowing smile on our faces and not a word spoken, Lenya and I strolled through for a glass of champagne and relaxed into another wonderful evening all thanks Lenya’s styling prowess and talent.

Last night I had the great pleasure of walking the red carpet and seeing Tomorrow, When the War Began.    I can truly say it restored my faith in Aussie film.  Great production, the crew should be really proud.  And a big thank you to Anthony for getting Shane and I our tickets.  It was soo good to hang out with you and your beautiful lady Joanna.  I also want to send a super special thank you to Carl and Weihan of Carl Kapp for lending me this fantastic dress.

Suing the Devil premiered in Sydney last night.  Genesis and I got to walk the Red Carpet and have some photos taken.  It was so good to catch up with all the old crew.  And of course I’m wearing a Gary Yang Collections dress.  Gary always makes me look good.

SATC 2 Gold Class

On Wednesday I had the ultimate pleasure of seeing the Sex and the City sequel Gold Class with my flatmate and a few of my old Westfield cronies. For those of you in the rest of world that don’t have the pleasure of knowing what Gold Class is, please allow me or rather Event Cinema to explain:


Gold Class is the ultimate world of cinema luxury. As you enter into the exclusive Gold Class lounge you will be greeted by one of our friendly staff welcoming you to this ultimate experience. The Gold Class theatre is an intimate setting that seats no more than 30-54 people where guests can relax in the comfort of plush reclining chairs. A delicious food & beverage menu provides a fantastic selection to add to your experience and one of our waiters will bring this into to you while you enjoy the movie – just make sure you keep room to enjoy one of our signature sundaes!


It all started with our special Gold Class tickets that allows you into the cinema and ends with you being ushered into the cinema to watch your movie in pure luxury.

My review – I loved it. I can’t understand what the critics are on about. I thought the movie tackled some interesting topic, marriage, motherhood, sexuality, gay marriage and relationships, and cultural differences. I may not agree with all of the statements made but I applaud the Producers for making them. The fashion was great, as expected, and I loved seeing Wendy Brandes Cleopatra earrings on Samantha, (I told the whole audience prior to the movie to keep a look out for them so there was a collective gasp when they finally showed up on the screen.) I loved the movie and the decadent way in which I got to view it.
