The tell-all December Girl


Elle Singapore

I love the end of the year, because there’s Christmas and imaginary snow to look forward to. That is why I was thrilled when I found out I would be part of Elle’s year-end issue. It’s a great collaboration because there’s a new direction, a new stylist and for me, a nice round-up to a new beginning.

2009 has been a dramatic year for me, in more ways than one, and this interview would tell all. I don’t know if it was the unorthodox interview setting (three girls having wine and cocktails) or the alcohol (I had a mojito), but we had a heart-to-heart chat and it felt refreshing to be able to not just answer questions but have a real conversation with someone who understands.

I am touched by the opportunity given to me, and the encouragement to keep me going. It will be a huge issue. Meanwhile, check out a the video below.

Gary always looks stressed when he's working, but I love that intensity when he tries to get the hair to look picture perfect.

Heels and accessories

One night I bumped into fashion stylist Fong Fan at an event and she discovered this spot. As we stood chatting, she thought this would be a great venue for a photo shoot, and this is where we came back for the cover shoot.

Fashion stylist for this cover shoot, Fong Fan. One night I bumped into her at an event and she discovered this spot. As we stood chatting, she thought this would be a great venue for a photo shoot, and so this was where we came back for the cover shoot. I snapped this picture of her that night because I thought she looked like she was was in NYC or LA or somewhere other than Singapore.

I got her to pose for me and she gamely did.

    • Hi Tortoisee

      Ahh…that’s why I need a hair-stylist who can make magic! Gary’s from Passion Hair Salon and they have all been well-trained and experienced in doing fashion shoots, so they know how to create a look when the task is given to them.
      I have a long fringe.
