“…This dress was worn by
Chinese-American actress Anna May Wong. While the dress may evoke the
“cheongsam”, a from-fitting traditional Chinese dress style, its
construction is along the lines of high-necked form-fitting Western
gowns from the Belle-Epoque period, but the dragon motif adds a distinct
Asian influence, dazzling in its execution in gold and silver sequins
on luxurious satin. It was designed by Banton for Wong’s role of Tu
Tuan in the 1934 film “Limehouse Blues.” Wong was a pioneer for
Asian-American actors and one of the few actors in general to transition
from silent to talking films.”

October Cover Star Lea Michele Wants to Fix Your Life / October 2015 / FLARE
Lea Michelle wearing a Lanvin dress and belt, Vicki Turbeville rings and Jimmy Choo boots.
With a new TV show and a self help book out this month, plus another album on the way, Glee alum and Scream Queens star Lea Michele is crushing life—and she thinks you can, too. Briony Smith sits down with the tiny dynamo and feels a strange impulse to become a better person.
Demi has been attending VMAs for quite some time now and stunned us all with her confidence. Take a look at her VMA fashion history.
This 16-year-old VMA Disney star looked gorgeous in a off-shoulder Herve Leger dress with black heels. Her straight hair and makeup completed her look. She looked great.
Her next appearance showed off her sexy side wearing a silver Mandalay dress with black Louboutins. I wasn’t really a fan of her hairstyle (and hair color) though, the makeup was fine.
I totally loved this comfortable look of her’s where she wore a black sparkly Topshop prom dress with matching heels and a leather jacket. Loved her hair and makeup. So cool!
And last year, she definitely turned heads with her daring red Lanvin gown and though I loved her hair and makeup, I wasn’t impressed at all as the dress was supposed to be more on the elegant side and apparently, it looked more raw!
I’m eagerly waiting what she’ll wear this year… Let’s see!
