30th Blue Dragon Film Awards

It must be Awards season in Asia, because here we have the amazing looks from another Asian awards ceremony.

Yoon Jin Seo blows me away wearing a red Chanel Resort 2010 off-the-shoulder gown.

I’m glad she added the black fur stole, because I wasn’t too crazy about those chiffon sleeves.

Kim Ha-Neul wears a grey Christian Dior Spring 2009 dress we’ve seen a few times before on the red carpet at Asian event.

Most notably by Monica Mok at the 28th Hong Kong Film Awards.

Kim accessorizes her dress well with silver earrings and a matching clutch.

This Blumarine Fall 2009 dress is quite dramatic and very difficult to pull off so I’m surprised to see it worn on this red carpet.

Son Ye Jin pulls off this black and navy strapless dress surprisingly well.

The gowns shredded skirt and awkward bustier didn’t overwhelm her.

Kim Hye Soo continues the growing love for Salvatore Ferragamo on Asian red carpets.

The actress must have been checking the keyhole detail on her Fall 2009 dress often as it looks like a wardrobe malfunction was just waiting to happen.

I love this shade of pink on Han Ye-Seul.

Her off-the-shoulder Amsale gown with a rosette detail on the bodice looks very much like a gown from Valentino’s Spring 2009 collection.

I’m desperately trying to pick my chin off the floor.

May I just say wow to Kim Ok-Bin in her Max & Logan fuchsia gown.

What a stunning look which is draped with an equally stunning pink fur stole.

That twisted detail on he skirt reminds me of Eva Longoria’s Atelier Versace gown.

Ha Ji-Won’s also gave me goosebumps.

Her off-the-shoulder look is by Vivienne Westwood.

I love the contrasting colours, thigh-high split and those stunning gold strappy sandals.

How can she be so beautiful with minimal make-up? *sulks*

Park Bo-Young does it again.

Last time out she looks like she was floating on a heavenly cloud, this time she gives us tweety bird.

The beautiful actress glided down the red carpet wearing a gorgeous canary confection by Korean designers Max & Logan, which could look quite costumey on some but stunning on Park.

This is a lot of gown for the tiny actress Kim Min-Hee, but she makes it work.

I love that jewel detail which breaks up all that black on her Amsale gown.

    wow, stunning!!!

  3. Emma December 17, 2009 at 18:59 #

    They all look great.

    I ‘m pretty sure that the Blumarine dress Son Ye Jin wears was worn by Taylor Momsen at her character’s cotillion on Gossip Girl.

    • Fashion Critic December 18, 2009 at 16:13 #

      yes at the ball. It is the same gown

  4. mm December 17, 2009 at 19:01 #

    These women are spectacular!! I mean every last one should be BDOTW. I am so loving Park Bo Young and Kim Ok-Bin equally. love their hair and accessories.

  5. Fatema December 17, 2009 at 19:07 #

    Hello great site, please let me know the dress that kim ok bin is wearing

    • Fashion Critic December 17, 2009 at 19:14 #

      sorry I don’t know.

  6. jared December 17, 2009 at 19:09 #

    ugh! do they ever have a bad day? all of them are pure perfection

  7. Vanessa December 17, 2009 at 19:15 #

    i love all the asian red carpets. the women are always more daring with their dresses (though the makeup is usually the same). thanks so much for featuring them and please keep doing so

    • Fashion Critic December 17, 2009 at 19:21 #

      will do :D

  8. Stuti December 17, 2009 at 20:03 #

    Wow, that Spring 2009 Dior collection is still going strong! It was my favourite though, so am just happy seeing perfect justice done to it.
    Park’s dress is a tad too short *you know where*, but she is so cute holding her clutch like that. :D
    All in all, FAB red carpet, my favourite has to be Kim Ok-Bin, without that fur stole, that plum dress is beyond gorgeous.

  9. Alyazia December 17, 2009 at 20:20 #

    surprisingly, i think the best gowns of this wear were showcased on the asian red carpets lol
    im mostly admiring Son Ye Jin for choosing the blumarine dress, it was one of my best collections in terms of vibrant colors & daring cuts ..

    i applaud how chic and sophisticated these ladys look, i think the secret is them being simple & not trying hard to pull a look they just cant ..

    • Fashion Critic December 17, 2009 at 20:45 #

      that is the secret as you say, they don’t try to hard.

      It’s all effortless.

  10. mol December 17, 2009 at 20:34 #

    Great eye candy posting F.C.! ! My favs are Ha Ji-Won (love the dress, clutch and shoes), and Kim Min-Hee.

  11. Jen December 17, 2009 at 21:05 #

    These Asian women sure know how to dress! Glad to see them featured on your site. :)

  12. zoe December 17, 2009 at 21:19 #

    again, all of these women look amazing. seriously, they should open up a school of how to look gorgeous all of the time on the red carpet.

    park bo-young for best dressed of the week!! <3

  13. e December 17, 2009 at 21:50 #

    the most wonderfulthing about these asian ladies is that they all look so happy, like they are having a great time! no one looks like they are striking a pose, or being boringly serious. it’s so refreshing to see such genuine smiles on the red carpet.

  14. Tamia December 17, 2009 at 22:01 #

    Fc-I’m going to say it babe..for me this is the best dressed event of the year!they all look stunning they all look classic but they’ve taken delicious risks which really work. Why do asian women wear clothes so well?I guess it’s their perfect posture and inate sense of style..merry christmas fc looking at these beautiful dresses is a lovely early present x

    • Fashion Critic December 18, 2009 at 06:44 #

      Merry Xmas to you too.

      They are divine to look at. Can’t wait to find more events like this

  15. Nat lie December 17, 2009 at 22:18 #

    Who designed Kim Ok-Bin’s gown? Such loveliness. Do you have the picture of the bodice too?

  16. gg December 17, 2009 at 22:24 #

    i find asian women beautiful and very dignified.

  17. nyma December 17, 2009 at 23:16 #

  18. ben December 17, 2009 at 23:29 #

    Wow, Park Bo-Young for BDOTW?

    I swear BDOTW is going to have about 50 choices this week.

    • Fashion Critic December 18, 2009 at 06:43 #

      it’s gonna be hard that’s for sure

  19. COR December 18, 2009 at 01:50 #

    they all look so fascinating!
    they sure really k now how to dress in a sexy way yet very elegant, fashionable, and stunningly beautiful.

  20. Kath December 18, 2009 at 02:31 #

    They all look drop dead gorgeous, but it’s a shame so many animals dropped dead for thier fur stole’s. When will people realise that fur is not an acceptable fashion statement? Sorry to be so negative but the fur totally ruined Kim Ok-Bin and Yoon Gin Seo’s looks for me. The other women all look stunning.

  21. Victoria December 18, 2009 at 04:31 #

    I love the way Koreans dress for red carpet events. :D They all look amazing!

    • Victoria December 18, 2009 at 07:21 #

      Oh and I forgot to mention! I vote Park Bo-Young and Kim Ok-Bin for BDOTW! :D

  22. Sue Jin December 18, 2009 at 07:33 #

    Ha Ji Won was my favorite of the night!

    Kim Hye Soo had a dress change since she was the host/mc for the night.
    Do you know the designer of the dress?

      No

  23. daisy December 18, 2009 at 07:44 #

    Kim Ok Bin’s & Park Bo Young’s dress are from MAX & LOGAN. They’re Korean designers, i guess. Many celebs have worn their dresses for award shows.

    • daisy December 18, 2009 at 07:45 #

      I forgot Kim Min Hee’s…:P She’s wearing AMSALE 2009 wedding dress.

  24. deango December 18, 2009 at 07:44 #

    Kim Ha Neul should be on BDOTW list !!

  25. Sue Jin December 18, 2009 at 11:32 #

    I can confirm that Ha Ji Won is wearing Vivienne Westwood. Park Bo Young and Kim Ock Bin are wearing MAG & LOGAN. Han Ye Seul and Kim Min Hee are wearing Amsale.

    The press finally released info about the designers! I found photos of the original dresses… let me know if you want them!

    • Fashion Critic December 18, 2009 at 11:44 #

      Thansk Sue. That would be great thanks

  26. bettybrandenburg December 18, 2009 at 13:20 #

    The pink dress you say might be Valentino looks like a clever quote on Korean National Dress. That whole more Empire than Empire line, flattening (hiding) the bust. Would not work on me, with my DD bust!

  27. SydneyCheapChic December 18, 2009 at 14:33 #

    A few looks are very ill-fitting here.BUt Kim Ok-Bin and Yoon Jin Seo are standouts for me

  28. shhh December 18, 2009 at 15:25 #

    Son ye jin and ha ji won for me…

  29. Cheryl March 26, 2010 at 18:48 #

    The Max & Logan brand is pretty hard to track down on the internet. Any leads, FC?

    • Fashion Critic March 26, 2010 at 18:54 #

      no sorry
