Women in fashion do love their studs - the glittery kind bearing the Swarovski name, that is. For 7 For All Mankind's 10th anniversary charity exhibition, Taiwanese superstar Lin Chi-ling, watch designer Christie Wu and socialite Yvette Yuen went all out with the crystal-stud gun on their jeans designs.

These one-off denim pieces, along with those of seven other shimmering personalities, were on display at the jeans brand's exhibition launch at The Arbour in IFC last Thursday.

Taiwanese heartthrob Joseph Cheng, stylist Gary Chung and celebrity-hairstylist Kim Robinson were among those who presented their designs, which will be auctioned this month to raise money for Make-A-Wish Hong Kong.

Lin's design, in particular, featured glittering globes on the hip and thigh areas, pieced together using 20,000 crystal studs, which 'looks glamorous but understated' according to the actress.

Robinson, who contributed a sparkle-free creation, made an impressive effort to explain his design in Cantonese, though he was stumped on the Cantonese shorthand for 'military chic'.

As a fan of the brand, Robinson was slightly disappointed that he couldn't try on his completed design, since it was a size-zero women's cut; he did, however, get to model a pair of the brand's limited edition Motorcycle Rhigby jeans at the event.

'I'm glad [7 For All Mankind] gave me these jeans - but what about the motorcycle?' Robinson quipped.
