Not only is she the spirited actress who entertains us on the small screen in Fresh off the Boat, she also headlines the upcoming Hollywood movie, Crazy Rich Asians, which shines the spotlight on Singapore’s ultra-wealthy.

Givenchy pre-fall 2018 Executive Editor Charmaine Ho on the empowerment that comes with dressing to please oneself Have you read John T. Molloy’s The Women’s Dress for Success Book (1977)? It’s a fascinating read with many amusing dress etiquette anecdotes for the workplace, like: “Never buy an acetate scarf ”; or “makeup works best with men when they don’t know you’re wearing it”.Until recently, “power dressing” for women has always been about the ability to fit into a man’s…

THE MINI SKIRT We haven’t seen the mini on the runway for some time now, but the thigh-grazing number is back in full swing this season.

When expert craftsmanship and tradition are intertwined with bold innovation and functionality, a new icon is born: Enter Bottega Veneta’s Chain Knot bag, a fresh interpretation of the coveted Knot bag. This roomier style allows you to keep your daily essentials, while an added hidden chain strap allows for hands-free moments. Using the new “Intrecciato Imperatrice” technique, the bag sees nappa leather being woven with exotic ayers leather before a panel of hand-rolled nappa is added for extra dimension. Throw in a luxurious suede lining and a brunito knot closure into the heady mix, and you’ve got yourself a bag that’s for keeps. The Chain Knot bag is $3,840 and is available at Bottega Veneta, #B1-99 The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands (Tel: 6688 7228). ■…
