Who's That Girl?

Its Rinko Kikuchi (or should i call her Rinko Star?), Hollywood's Japanese import via the critically acclaimed Babel, a film by director Alejandro González Iñárritu starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, and a burgeoning style star! Love the mix of classic Chanel and Harajuku cool. Japanese girls rock!

I'm not loving the shoes in the first picture. They're not exactly chic or even fashionable.

Point well taken! Personally, I don't wear Japanese street fashion. But you have to admire them for their creativity, crazy as it may seem. Its not so much the clothes, but the daring attitude towards unconventional clothing that amazes me. It takes guts and lots of self-confidence not to take the safe route, and somehow get away with it.

Americans don't get her style. It's very Jap and their style is really out there. I like the black dress but not the white. Maybe if I wear it I'd tone it down for Filipino taste.

She did look like a poodle at the Golden Globes. But it sort of works on her don't you think?

Yeah, I agree! But that's her style, she doesn't go for the conventional. Since she looks confident in it, it works somehow!
