Nytimes featured an article about new clothing designs in Japan that will ease Japan’s growing fears of crime, by camouflaging as vending machines etc.. Fact is the designs seem more like a funny prank rather than any serious anti-crime tactics.

Btw, as Japundit pointed out… it is not something new, but merely a “repackaging of a story that made the rounds on the Internet back in 2005.”

US tennis star Venus Williams and Russian player Maria Kirilenko were dressed in Hanbok (traditional Korean dress) during the awards presentation ceremony at the Hansol Korea Open on September 30.

Williams is the champion after beating Kirilenko in the final. Besides the prize money, the champ was also presented with a Koryochungja, a vase made of Korean green porcelain.

The fashion and styling of Korean artist Honey Lee has gone all wrong here. Honey will feature in the October issue of Vogue magazine (Korea version)… they aren’t serious about using this photo ain’t so?

Cosmetics can turn a simple girl into stunning beauty… I guess it can work in the direct opposite as well.

Honey represents Korea at the Miss Universe 2007 in Mexico City. I thought she had bright chance to win the event, but she didn’t perform too well at the Q&A section (the translator should take part of the blame) and finished as the 3rd-runner-up instead.

Anyway, Honey became a popular celebrity back in Korea. She landed a hosting position at Real Time TV Entertainment and is now involved in modelling. Considering her popularity… Honey is likely to star in some dramas/movies soon; she will have a bright future in the entertainment world.
