47th Paeksang Arts Awards

The 47th Baeksang Arts Awards took place yesterday in Seoul, South Korea.

Hwang Jung Eum selected a Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2011 navy cropped long sleeve sweater with a navy maxi skirt.

Whilst the look feels too casual for an awards show, Hwang Jung Eum totally rocks it. She was my favourite from this event which included a lot of gowns.

She completed her look with silver bracelets.

Park Shin Hye also wore a look from the Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2011 collection.

Her navy plunging gown was paired with same gold chain runway belt and a white Ferragamo clutch.

It’s a very elegant look, but I’m not that excited about it.

Ko Hyun-Jung opted for a very elegant Donna Karan Spring 2011 nude dress with silver embellished details. Her dress is stunning, but she’s not breathing much life into it.

Kim Nam-Joo opted to wear a red Hermes Spring 2011 suit. This is a very chic look. I love her bold attitude to stand out from this crowd and her black accessories.

Tang Wei, who had a very successful Cannes trip, opted for a beautiful watercolour pleated Escada gown which is both summery and heavenly.

Nam Kyu-Lee went in the opposite direction to Tang’s summery look. The actress wore a gorgeous maroon ruffled gown which she paired with nude satin pumps.

Han Hio-Ju seems very overwhelmed by her white lace tiered Nina Ricci dress with a black waistband. For something white and light in fabric, the look feels extremely heavy. A more streamlined look would’ve been preferred.

      Thank you.

      I have see all the looks.

      Like all events I only feature those I’m inspired by as it is not possible to feature everyone

    I love Nam Kyu-Lee’s look- her purple gown is gorgeous.
    Kim Nam-Joo is so chic. We don’t see a lot of Asian stars wearing suits, so this is refreshing.
    Tang Wei’s gown is so slimming on her!
    I am glad Hwang Jung Eum added the silver bangles to her looks for some extra detail.

    Hwang Jung Eum is cute.And I love Tang Wei’s dress.

  6. Hadara May 27, 2011 at 06:34 #

    Interesting that Hwang Jung Eum bared her midriff on a red carpet. Koreans tend to be rather conservative dresser. It is, indeed, causal; but I like it.

    The rest I can leave.

    Love whenever you post asian red carpet events, FC!

  8. rawda May 27, 2011 at 07:45 #

    i still can’t warm to this flashback from the 90s :( midriff-baring dresses are not to be worn on the red carpet.

    love that water-color dress~

  10. Alina May 27, 2011 at 11:41 #

    Kim Nam-Joo and Tang Wei are my favourites.

  11. Lauren Williamson May 27, 2011 at 12:12 #

    I love all of these looks especially Tang Wei’s! That dress is just so gorgeous!

    Btw, I read today that Bryce Dallas Howard is indeed pregnant, which could perhaps explain that terrible dress she wore to the Cannes festival!

    • Fashion Critic May 27, 2011 at 12:25 #

      I don’t think she should blame that dress on her pregnancy lol

  12. Mario May 27, 2011 at 12:28 #

    Han Hio-Ju is wearing a Nina Ricci dress which has also been worn by Anna Dello Russo who totally rocked it :)

    • Fashion Critic May 27, 2011 at 12:31 #

      thanks, I just spotted that too

  13. A May 27, 2011 at 12:40 #

    I am so glad you like Hwang Jung Eum. As an Indian used to sarees I have always been partial to the a bare midriff

  14. shap_half May 27, 2011 at 16:16 #

    I really love Hwang Jung Eum’ s look. I think it’s a worthy BDOTW. I may even vote for it. She looks great. It’s sexy, modern and still totally awesome.

  15. KateS May 28, 2011 at 02:10 #

    The Ferragamo PR people seem to have done a very impressive job of getting into the asian markets – SF looks seem to appear a lot more often on red carpets in HK, China and South Korea than on many western ones. Hwang Jung Eum looks gorgeous.
    Not SF, but I also love the red suit. Unexpected and super chic.

  16. Tania May 28, 2011 at 12:02 #

    Hwang Jung Eum and Kim Nam-Joo are my favourites. Does anyone know who designed the red suit?

  17. Jones19 May 28, 2011 at 13:05 #

    Love that Escada dress. SWOON.

  18. serenissima May 28, 2011 at 22:30 #

    So interesting how many of you liked Hwang Jung Eum’ s look but hated a similar style (maxi skirt/midriff top) on Jena Malone. I rest my case that you decide what you like based on the person and not the actual outfit.

    • Fashion Critic May 29, 2011 at 13:54 #

      I loved Jena Malone’s outfit, so please don’t so quick to judge me by saying I love a look based on the person. As it’s polite way of saying that I lack integrity

  19. Eva May 28, 2011 at 23:52 #

    Kim Nam-Joo’s suit is from Hermes spring 2011 collection, the escada dress is sooo beautiful!!

    • Fashion Critic May 29, 2011 at 13:51 #

      thank you x

  20. mochababe73 May 29, 2011 at 13:29 #

    Tang Wei’s dress is absolutely stunning. That one caught my eye right away.
    I have a thing about bare mid-drifts. But to each his own.
