DJ turns the tables on style

Before she stumbled upon the music business eight years ago, Wong Yat-tung, better known as DJ Miss Yellow, was a model, beauty pageant contestant and jobbing actress for TVB.

Look cool this winter

With a change in seasons to cooler weather, it is time to wrap up with equally cool looks straight from the catwalk. Falling temperatures mean the return of layers, whether it's a chunky knit over a floaty dress or structured blazer over jeans and a T-shirt.

On style, she rules

I'm not the type - either body- or style-wise - to wear super-tight trousers or leggings, but I would love a pair of leather pants for my winter wardrobe. What do you recommend?

Urbane renewal


Paris Fashion Week is probably still the most exciting of the big four. It's a week in which four-inch candy-coloured wedges are more common than baguettes - especially across the gravelly ground around Les Jardin de Tuileries. OK, we're exaggerating, but the city, even more so than usual, unashamedly embraces style.

Songstress takes some time out to put on the style

With her biggest concert to date coming up in January, it's unlikely that Kary Ng Yu-fei will have time for a Christmas holiday getaway. The Canto-pop sensation nevertheless took time out to help launch the latest resort collection of Australian fashion brand Sass & Bide.
