From the explosion of pink and red balloons to the cupcake station and overflowing jars of marshmallow and jelly beans, Swarovski's spring-summer collection launch resembled more of a tween princess-themed birthday party than a fashion accessories runway show.

Ana Rivera, Jacqueline Ch'ng and the other models let loose their flirty side as they pranced and danced down the catwalk in flouncy tutu-like outfits and 1960s-inspired bouffants and beehives. Guests who weren't blinded by the intense glare from the collection's oversized crystal-encrusted neck pieces still likely suffered a toothache afterwards from the saccharine overload.

The icing on the cake came in the form of sweet-faced celebrity guest Angelababy Yang Ying, who wore a bright orange wrap dress and candy-coloured make-up. The actress, who is working on a film in Beijing, revealed that she would be busy with public appearances for both Valentine's Day and her birthday - which is this month. 'That just means I'll be celebrating with my fans, which is great,' she said.

That may be true for her fans, but probably much less so for singer-actor boyfriend Huang Xiaoming.
