Stars In Shanghai For Balenciaga’s Spring 2025 Fashion Show

In the pouring rain, Balenciaga staged its Spring 2025 fashion show, and while we were blown away by the over-the-top accessories and gowns, the celebrity appearances at the show at the Museum of Art Pudong were just as eye-catching. Thai actor and model PP Krit made his runway debut at the show, while major stars including Michelle Yeoh and Juyeon from The Boyz sat in the front row of the Spanish luxury house’s show.

Korean Stars In Seoul For Dior’s Dioriviera Pop-Up

On 29 May, Dior held a launch event in Seoul for its summer collection, in the hip neighbourhood of Seong-su. Of course, no launch event is complete without a red carpet and some of our favourite Korean celebrities to add some dazzle. In attendance at the event were a few of Dior’s muses, including Haerin of NewJeans, ASTRO’s Cha Eun-woo, and Han So-hee. Not forgetting Jung Hae-in, figure skater Kim Yuna and Park Solomon, aka Lomon, who also dressed up in breezy summer fits to match Dior’s collection launch.

Korean actor Jun Ji-hyun, whom you might recognise from K-dramas such as My Love From The Star and Legend Of The Blue Sea, is set to star in an upcoming film on Disney+, alongside actor Gang Dong-won. The spy thriller Tempest is set to reach Disney+ only next year, but excitement for the film is already running high. In addition to the star power of the main cast, Tempest is directed by Kim Hee-won, who most recently directed the hit K-drama Queen Of Tears, starring Kim Ji-won and Kim Soo-hyun. The plot of the film follows Jun and Gang as a former ambassador to the United States and a special international agent respectively, as they race to protect the Korean Peninsula from a mysterious threat.

Gulf Kanawut Visits Onitsuka Tiger’s Flagship Store In Singapore

Ahead of his first fanmeeting in Singapore, Thai actor Gulf Kanawut visited Onitsuka Tiger’s flagship store in Takashimaya along Orchard Road. The 26-year-old, who is holding his first fanmeet on our sunny island tonight at the Capitol Theatre, has been a longtime friend of Onitsuka Tiger.  In the store, the TharnType: The Series star rocked pieces from the Japanese sports label, including a soft knit cardigan with a special cutout detailing on the sleeves. In years past, Kanawut—whose real name is Kanawut Traipipattanapong—has been invited to Milan Fashion Week, for the presentations of the brand’s Fall/Winter 2023 and 2024 collections.

Bella Hadid and Cate Blanchett At The 2024 Cannes Film Festival 

The Cannes Film Festival might have just wrapped last weekend, but there were some moments that still linger in our minds. Stars like Bella Hadid and Cate Blanchett took the opportunity on the famous red steps to stand in solidarity with Palestine, in regard to the ongoing occupation of Gaza. Supermodel Bella Hadid, who herself is of Palestinian heritage, wore an archival Michael & Hushi dress from 2001, inspired by the Palestinian Keffiyeh. Actor Cate Blanchett opted for a more subtle approach, using a gown designed by Haider Ackermann for Jean Paul Gaultier to create an optical illusion on the red carpet.
