October 21, 2011, Opus Lounge at Resort's World, Pasay -- I was invited to the launch of Shu Uemura's latest holiday collection for this year in collaboration with Wong Kar Wai, acclaimed Chinese film Director. The theme of the launch has a 1920's China vibe to it. As Alex suggested, it did reminded us of Wong Kar Wai's 2046 film. All the guests were dressed to the nines, the food and drinks overflowing. It was a night to celebrate.
The launch includes a makeup show that features the talents of Shu Uemura makeup artists and their interpretation of the Shu Uemura X Wong Kar Wai Collection. I'm amazed with all the results and how avant garde the looks have become.. and yet still seem to be wearable. The models seemingly coming to life from a film of Wong Kar Wai. It's full of drama, bedazzles and elegance...
I don't know, somehow.. This collection makes me feel as if I'm floating on air... like the beggining of falling in love. You know that feeling, I'm sure.
Patrick in his masterful creation on Patricia Prieto
John Pagaduan and Sharon created what seems to be a woman in flight...
Here's a more neutral but exceedingly full of of drama from Angie.
Another dramatic look from Mickey See, worthy of a Wong Kar Wai heroine.
They say that eyes are the windows to the soul... wear a mask and still the true emotions will still surface... I'm now understanding the film Wong Kar Wai created and how it interacts with this year's Shu Uemura Holiday collection.
Here are the ladies who were with me at the launch, drinking champagne, nibbling on bite-size steaks and in tranced with all this collection has to offer.
