Dress-code: Sexy Burlesque.

After attending a series of STYLO’s fantastic galas over a period of 1 week, it finally culminated in the grand finale gala presented by Mercedes-Benz STYLO Fashion Awards 2011 with the theme: “A Moulin Rouge Affair” and “The Burlesque After-Party.”

A series of Fashion and Fashion-related crowns will be dished out to the deserving winners, among them: Designer of the Year; Model of the Year; Emerging Designer of the Year; Supermodel Mentor and Industry Achievement awards.

This year, the STYLO event will also present one of London’s most exciting designers – Ara Jo. She will feature her latest Autumn/Winter 2011 Collection. Her creation has been worn by the likes of Lady Gaga, Jamelia, Solange Knowles and Leona Lewis to name a few.

And to top off the most exciting night in STYLO Fashion Grand Prix 2011, Mouawad will also unveil the world’s most expensive purse valued at USD3.8 million in Kuala Lumpur. This I think will be the highlight of the night for most of the ladies in attendance at the Mercedes-Benz Burlesque gala!

Tourism Malaysia presents: The Glass Slipper Gala

Kuala Lumpur, 6th April 2011.

Last night, the Ministry of Tourism, Malaysia presented “The Glass Slipper Gala” in conjunction with the International Shoe Festival that will be officially launched this coming weekend. The evening fashion show was tailored to the fairytale story of “Cinderella… and her supposedly Ugly Stepsisters”.

Although Malaysia might not be the fashion capital of the world (or close to it), we can be proud of our own designers that are bold, creative and dare to be different. I salute all the designers for their tremendous effort and their unique imagination!

More photos from the other half of the gala will be updated later. I am sure you would want to know what happened to Cinderella! 🙂
