This makes me dream of wintering in Hai'ewa...
I missed Stella's collection, and Roberto's too. All the best Viktor and Rolf pieces were gone by the time I got there, and Karl's collection was just so-so-- so I don't think I missed much there. For Jimmy, I was very sick, so Lil' Sis and I studied the website every night lea...Read more
Hi All! Now that the Miss Asia Project is over. Please continue following my adventures on my new work blog: Made(up)in NY.
When the producer of ECOFEST called me to put on a show to demonstrate green and sustainable dressing for an audience of 10,000 New Yorkers I said, "Absolutely!"

Yep. Watch it one more time. But it still won't ever compare to the LIVE show that Amy and I got when we shot Daisha Graf last weekend.

Just as I predicted, Konnie and I dissolved into a ball of tears just as they crowned Jennifer, Nichole and Roxanne. And then Konnie and I went home to my humble flat, packed, and were immediately whisked off to San Francisco to do it all over again.
I am just now sorta recovering.
For those who were not privy, as a final twist to the competition, the East Coast girls were required to submit one question each for the Q&A segment, and draw from the pool of questions by their pageant mates.
After a month of intense tr...Read more
I don't have any children, but now I have my pageant girls.
I think about them all the time, for example, today my friend Rain and I were having a conversation (slightly edited):
Rain: How are you by the way? Missing anything? Satisfied?
Me(in proper beauty queen format): Thank you for that question Rain. I would say I am pretty satisfied right now, because as I have grown older I've come to realize that what you think you want will not necessarily make you happy and it's the perception of missing somethin...Read more
This is the beginning of the Miss Asia in America series on how it feels to be a beauty contestant.
Our first topic of conversation: pageant shoes.
Generally speaking, shoes are a such a core part of a pageant contestant's outfit, yet so under acknowledged. I think is time to bring light to what a shoe can do for a girl and feel that highlighting the clear shoe phenomenon is most appropriate because the clear shoe is so truly a pageant specific accoutrement.
While it is quite obvious that clear shoes are a beauty...Read more
