Steal the look of… Penny Tai

On our blog, we often share inspirations about how to make your big day closer to perfection. We also absolutely love sharing happy news about celebrities and/or famous personalities who have tied the knot and moved on to the next stage in life.

And on the list of famous newlyweds this year is Malaysian singer-songwriter Penny Tai who tied the knot with her Taiwanese boyfriend Sidney Lu on Saturday (Dec 27) in Taipei. (If you missed our entry on that, click here!) Certainly a sight to behold, we want to furnish you with some ideas on how you can make her look yours.

The look: The quirky songbird opted for a Ersa Atalier lacey wedding gown followed by a Yolan Cris pant suit. When asked about her wedding gowns at a meet-the-press session prior to the banquet, Penny quipped that she preferred a gown with long sleeves as she was afraid of the cold.

Make it yours: If you are of the mindset that a long-sleeved wedding dress implies a conservative, cautious attitude, let us prove you wrong!

Actress Ariel Lin and her fiancé, Charles Lin, held their wedding celebration on Christmas eve in Taiwan. According to media reports, the couple, who had a star-studded engagement party in October, invited over 600 guests consisting of close family members and friends.

Lin, who is known for TV idol dramas including “In Time with You” and “It started with a Kiss” in which she was awarded the Golden Bell Awards’ “Best Actress for Drama”, changed into three different gowns for the night.

After the headline-grabbing engagement party, the media were reportedly not given access to this wedding reception. However, a crowd of camera-welding reporters blocked her arrival at the banquet hall. Luckily, the banquet hall’s security guards used umbrellas to cover the couple and blocked off any source of photography. Hence, the only source of photos was from the celebrity guests themselves including Mickey Huang and Xie Na.

Prior to the wedding, the couple visited Charles’ hometown. Besides paying respects to Charles’ ancestors, Ariel also abided by the family traditions of throwing a fan out of her car window on the wedding day, to symbolize the riddance of bad habits. The Lins have been dating for over two years.
