Looks like we’re definitely tuning in to America’s Next Top Model Cycle 22! The popular reality television show is finally featuring an Asian male contestant and it goes without saying that he’s an absolute dreamboat. Justin Kim may only be 23-years-old, but the Korean model already has quite a few eyes on him. According to Model Mayhem, he has done editorial, erotic, fitness, lifestyle, swimwear and promotional modeling. Kim, who stands over six feet tall and hails from Springfield, Virginia, has nearly 7K followers on Instagram, and we can only imagine how much his fanbase will grow with ANTM. After all, he is already being named a fan-favorite.

Although there have already been Asian contestants on the show (such as Shei Phan, Gina Choe, Jennifer An, Sheena Satana and Claire Unabia), these contestants have all been female. This certainly aligns with the idea that mainstream media has not yet recognized the appeal of Asian men. Too many times have we seen Asian males stereotyped with “traditionally unappealing” traits. “When I was growing up, I was very much influenced by what I saw, and more importantly what I didn’t see on television.” said the winner of reality TV show Survivor: Cook Islands, Yul Kwon. Kwon went on to point out that whenever he saw an Asian man on television, the character was a kung-fu master who could kick ass but couldn’t speak English, or a computer geek who could figure out algorithms but couldn’t get a date. It’s 2015 and yet these negative stereotypes still exist. Hopefully, with more Asians entering mainstream media platforms, the world can finally accept that Asians are just as diverse as any other ethnicity. After all, we are human too.

2015 Met Gala 中國風話題滿點 蕾哈娜黃袍加身稱霸紅毯!

6 May
Re-post Article from VOGUE TAIWAN  |  文字:Sun  VOGUE.TW

一年一度的紐約大都會藝術博物館慈善晚宴Met Gala又來囉!每年的Dress Code是一大重點,原以為去年以大禮服與裝飾White tie and Decoration為Dress Code向設計師Charles James致敬的主題已經夠艱難,今年卻再出奇招,也許是太獨特了,所以早在今年一月初就提前釋出主題:「中國:鏡花水月(China: Through the Looking Glass)」,現在就來看看眾女星們如何演繹令人眼睛一亮的中國風吧!
 ·

中國女星組:鞏俐、范冰冰、章子怡、劉嘉玲、李冰冰、湯唯、趙薇、鄧文迪、倪妮

亞裔臉孔的優勢就是先天就已經符合了主題,並且會讓身上的禮服更有中國味,與安娜溫圖Anna Wintour一起主持的晚宴的鞏俐,選了Roberto Cavalli的紫紅天鵝絨配上黑色刺繡旗袍非常大器;章子怡的白色紅梅傘裙旗袍很有古典韻味,但盤髮和妝容卻略顯嚴肅老氣;范爺范冰冰選了金色亮片長裙配上如萬里長城般的刺繡綠色披肩,氣勢驚人而且不是以往在坎城出現過的直接龍袍、陶瓷印花的中國風;劉嘉玲再次穿上大膽的Schiaparelli黑白訂製晚裝,不對稱剪裁和手套有新意優雅。

原本衣Q不錯的趙薇這次出包,紫色緞面禮服和復古髮型顯老,而李冰冰、湯唯、趙薇、鄧文迪、倪妮等人皆是漂亮出席,卻印象不深。

美麗中國風:凱特瑪拉Kate Mara、蕾哈娜Rihanna、艾里珊鍾Alexa Chung、Emily Blunt、艾瑪羅勃茲Emma Roberts、碧夏佛Bee Shaffer

雖然西方對「中國風」看法與我們的期待有落差,但也有不少女星絕佳演譯了今年的主題,像凱特瑪拉Kate Mara的DVF白色改良式旗袍,黑色印花、V領和裙襬的開衩都恰到好處;時尚ICON蕾哈娜Rihanna的中國風相當直觀,選了中國高訂品牌郭培Guo Pei的訂製黃袍,不管是飽和金黃或是超長裙襬的設計都非常亮眼而且契合主題;艾蜜莉布朗特Emily Blunt的Prada淺藍旗袍優雅出眾;每年都出席挺媽媽的碧夏佛Bee Shaffer選的Alexander McQueen酒紅禮服比較像和服改良款,但是白色梅花刺繡和仙鶴讓整體看起來有活力,偏向日本風但也有點中國味。It Girl始祖艾里珊鍾Alexa Chung和艾瑪羅勃茲Emma Roberts兩位選擇以細節來展現主題,艾里珊鍾Alexa Chung的平口紫色裙裝剪裁現代,但是細緻的刺繡中國味十足,而艾瑪羅勃茲Emma Roberts是以飽和、滿有中國感覺的祖母綠表現,繡有中國龍的手拿包徹底畫龍點睛。

漂亮出席組:碧昂絲Beyonce、安海瑟薇Anne Hathaway

大概是中國風實在不好駕馭,因此不少人決定美麗出席即可,像天后碧昂絲Beyonce的Givenchy透膚彩鑽訂製禮服,好身材一覽無遺;安海瑟薇Anne Hathaway別出心裁的Ralph Lauren Collection金色連帽裙很襯膚色,巧妙在正裝和休閒中取得平衡,而且展現了她的曲線美,不過穿去埃及Party可能更適合。

最佳原創組Fka Twigs、Zendaya、小賈斯汀Justin Bieber、莎拉潔西卡派克、Lady Gaga

如果搭不上主題,就盡情展現自己吧!造型和音樂都很有個性的Fka Twigs穿了 Christopher Kane抽象拼接裙-駕馭成功!青春偶像Zendaya大膽選了Fausto Puglisi,蓬裙、拖曳裙襬和頭飾卻意外頗受歐美頗受好評;近期少有作品的小賈斯汀Justin Bieber穿上Balmain刺繡西裝,主題達成!去年的主席莎拉潔西卡派克的禮服是由H&M量身訂製,總喜歡以誇張頭飾現身的她,這次也帶上了Philip Treacy特別設計的頭飾,話題性十足;另一位話題女神Lady Gaga,她的紅毯永遠是衣不驚人死不休,不過也只有她如此駕馭這席服裝了。

10 Korean Male Pop Idols Before & After Makeup

Kpop Male Makeup Before and After

韓風10男偶像 妝前、妝後比一比

It comes as no surprise that make up and styling can greatly transform a look — that’s why so many people do them everyday to the point that some of them refuse to even go out unless they’ve put on their mask. While makeup is an essential part of being an idol, some of them bravely proved that they had absolutely nothing to worry while simultaneously proving the power of makeup by revealing their bare face to the public (gasp!).

Check out the handsome fellows below in their before and after makeup shots.

彩妝與造型有多重要呢? 請讀者們看看、比較以下韓國10男偶像的妝前妝後大改造就知道囉。

嗯,現在大家知道彩妝+造型對偶像、藝人們來說有多重要了吧!素顏的藝人雖然有些也像我們在街上看的路人甲乙丙丁一樣,但是經過專業造型/彩妝師們精心巧手的妝容大改造之後,是不是才是我們在螢光幕上看到的他們一樣光芒四射呢?
