I'm finally blogging about the oh-so-long-ago event, The World Runway Premiere held at Singapore Indoor Stadium!
I was so happy when I was chosen to be part of the cheerleading squad, but I got another invitation to go as media whereby I could officially take photos! Thanks to the organizers who invited me~ It was a pity th ough that I couldn't bring Miki and Hana along with me to the media space and I ended up sitting alone there and both of them far far away from me :(

World Runway Premiere was brought together by the man behind TGC (Tokyo Girls' Collection), one of Japan's biggest runway shows. It's my dream to go to one and experience the whole awesome experience. One day~ I'll make sure I go for it.

I had to go in from another door to go to the media space and SE7EN was having rehearsals. I didn't stay throughout the show so I didn't take any pictures of him during the actual performance. But for you girls or guys who likes him, here are a couple of pictures of him rehearsing.
After about an hour or so, I saw Kai (the girl who gave me her gladiator sandals :)) walking in with a friend to the media area. Chatted a lil while before the show started and I started my photo takings.

And here are the photos of the designs the different countries came up with for the first round: Street Style
Favorite for me by Brazil would be the design worn by the fourth model.
Combination of black and with a touch of bold colors really attracts me.
France's designs looks so Paris chic influenced. I really like the middle design.
I know it's all black again (I'm very attracted to black clothing >.<) but it looks really sophisticated especially with the model's short hair.
Although I'm a Singaporean, but honestly speaking I don't really fancy the designs the Singapore team came up... They got into the second round and I was kinda disappointed actually. There were other teams that had more awesome designs that should have gone on to the second round.
Russia's designs are actually kinda cute with the printed stockings and all the nude colors.
My favorite of the lot would be the second from the left. And the "hat" that the fourth model is wearing is actually a bag!! How cute. These designs really resembles the "Forest Girl" look that Japanese magazines always have.

I didn't take any photos for the Japan team cos I was taking a video instead.
I wanted to keep it as a memory. I'd be uploading the video soon enough >.<
Designs from Japan was really "JAPAN", with all the kimono prints and the crazy headgear.
The model on the most right hand was wearing this crazy Lady Gaga lookalike shoes and she kinda fell (not on the ground kind) but she managed to compose herself and continue strutting down the runway! The crowd was cheering so loudly when she continued her walk. GO JAPAN!
USA had some really nice designs too! My favorites are the ones in the third and the fourth picture.
I didn't manage to get the full look of the model in the fourth picture (no clear picture of the full design to be exact >.<) The model wearing the green dress had this choker that added an edge to the design which I really like.
Italy went for the aztec/ ethnic prints. They too had quite interesting make up~ My favourite is the first model in the picture. The dress she had on was so flattering!

UK was my favorite of the night and I think many people who went agreed too.
Dark colors and metallic goes so well together. UK had really interesting make up theme that night too! With the exaggerated pointy eyebrows, it made the collection so quirky yet attractive. And the model in the fifth photo was caught sporting a Vivienne Westwood Heart Bag!!!!
The teams who got into the second round were UK, Japan, France and Singapore. Each winning team gets to choose a team that did not get into the second round to help out for the second round. (I think it was to help out?HAHA)
After announcing the qualifying teams Nare came on stage to perform. I don't really know about her but she has amazing voice, and not forgetting that she looks so pretty! My camera didn't do her justice, I ended up snapping photos of her making her look so unflattering. :(
Oh! And did I mention? Utt was the MC for the show!!! <3
I think he's really cute (after seeing him upclose at the Harajuku Street style event that only happened after this event).
|Utt on the left <3|
Hana, Miki and me didn't stay through the show cos we were all so hungry. And because we didn't stay on, I only found out through their FB page that UK won!!! So happy! Congratulations UK!!

I'm totally digging the beige colored dress the third model is wearing!
We then left after Nare has performed for ramen at Parco Marina Bay!! Yayy!!
