Rags to Riches

Boy was I surprised to find out that Hong Kong's own Gigi "Burger Queen" Leung was invited to New York last month for the Marc Jacobs fashion show. Not only did her mysterious patrons deck her out in a pretty aqua terry cloth bathrobe, but Gigi even got to be interviewed. Somebody actually paid some attention to her! And I bet they had never even watched La Brassiere.

You can read the brief Q&A session in which Gigi proceeds to beat us over the head with her love for colourful things and popular colours. However she really does her homeland a massive disservice by describing Hong Kong fashion as conservative. Does she not read this blog? Does she walk around with a designer blindfold? Why does she need to lie to the foreign press like that?

The brazen barefaced liar also got to escape all those tedious Chinese New Year family reunions (you know the ones where the seniors wet their pants crowing about China being the best country to live in but keep their overseas passports safely hidden in between their incontinence pads) by attending the Marc by Marc Jacobs show in an festive red ensemble.

The reason why I was so surprised to see Gigi at New York Fashion Week was because the last couple of times I came across her, she looked decidedly rough. She didn't even have 2 platinum credit cards to rub together.

Enjoy your time in the limelight, Gigi! Fame is fleeting and it needs to be pounced on lustily like Anna Nicole Smith does. Before you know it, you'll have to go back to the days of thinking that a drawstring trash bag was wearable, as long as one didn't accessorise with breakable glass items.

What's with the too-short jackets? She looks like she's wearing her younger sister's 'hand-me-ups'.

I think it's because she's quite leggy, much taller than the average HK female.

What's Gigi's price per night again? I notice she has jobs in NY too.

Why why why Gigi of all people gets seats at the Marc Jacobs show? It's not like she dresses even that fashionable anyways. I would think if any HK celebs got ticket, it would be Kelly Chen. Besides, HK fashion is not boring! Has she even walked into Lane Crawford? Or Pacific Place? And has she ever seen California before (boring fashion place.)? And no fashion is boring compared to her songs and burn fat ads.

The teal outfit is not a good look for her. She looks like a muppet.
