I don't know about you, but I starting to smell a new style clotheshorse has been thrown into the mix.

Since first seeing Rinko wow the crowds with her Chanel "pompom" dress at this years Golden Globes, I've kept an eye out for her outfits of choice at premieres, and in particular at the Oscars. Although she didn't have much chance in the same category as Jennifer Hudson, she chose another Chanel dress that, in my opinion, made her one of the best dressed women, along with Reese, Penelope, Gwyneth and co.

A peek at her back catalogue of get-ups reveals a quirly androgenuos tuxedo and a chic body conscious black minidress among many other great choices, leaving her well and truly covered by the "up and coming" limelight.

I'm impressed.

I think she looks really pretty, but slightly too white. I wonder if she had that eye surgery thing?

Q said...

Marissa--if she had black hair, you would definitely be able to tell that she's Asian.

Rinko is the only reason I want to see Babel, I've heard great things about her scenes.

japanese can never be too white.

babel is only worth watching because of her scenes. The story of her character is by far the most interesting.

nice pics btw!!

ah! that balenciaga dress!- i'm obsessed with it. i really like her style- esp the ones from backstage. also loveeed what she wore to the oscars- i thought the hair was ace.

coco said...

shes really cool and quirky
i havent seen any of her films though, i jest watch her style.
the only one i am not so keen on is the pink chanel she wore, although i apreciate the quirk of it.
i love the natalie portman picture you have up, she looks so beautiful in it.

Marissa said...

Yes, I saw The Science of Sleep it came out in the fall in Canada. I loved it so much.

Sarah said...

funnyface said...

good post. rinko's cool despite what hollywood says of her style

For all of the trash that was talked about her in the mainstream media, I thought everything she wore--and especially her hair & make-up--were absolute charming & much more interesting than any of the blah usuals that show up on the red carpet. Good call.

most of the time she is horribly off, but sometimes, she hits the mark..

Flashy_Shades said...

you're linked!

Everyone is really harsh about what she wears but it is refreshing to see someone who doesn't follow the 'long dress in one colour with one type of embellishment + understated updo/jewellery' formula. Much love for being different.

i can't see the pictures!!

First off I have to say a big THANK YOU for all of your support while the hunt has been going on. I really want to give you a huge hug because you have been extremely positive all the way, and you have been so kind to let me know that. You are such a sweetheart!!

I'm not sure what I am going to do yet. I might go back to my "old" posts, or I might do a new round either with past style icons like Edie and Marilyn, models or up & coming style icons like Peaches Geldof. But I'm not sure yet..what do you think?? I'd love your opinion! :-D
