Lyka's East Asia: Zhu Lin and Zhang Xu Chao
US Vogue named India's Lakshmi Menon as one of the brightest stars in fashion today. But would there be one from East Asia in the near future? How about these new(?) Chinese models, Zhu Lin (left) and Zhang Xu Chao (right)? We are rooting for Zhang. We cant wait to see how her freckles will go. Ni Hao!
Mama O Latino: Hilda and Justin Suarez
Betty is not the only cool Suarez. Hilda (Ana Ortiz) is getting noticed. Her vivacious character, her unsuccessful romantic relationships, and the nasal accent all put together for a good beautician show! (And Ralph Macchio for a new love? Venga!). Enter her son Justin (Mark Indelicato), Yesss! Justin, who has a new love interest as well. Will the blonde bully Randy be the one for him? Cant wait!
Kelly's Caucasia: Dean and Dan Caten
Have you seen DSquared2 all-colored-male SS2009 Show? Its designers,Toronto-based identical twins Dean and Dan did it again. Concept kung concept! (Obama Go ang drama! Naglalaway ang Lyka! Chos!) They're known for staging elaborate fashion shows with Homelessness, Men's Locker Room, Wild West, etc as examples of themes they've took on. O Canada! We stand on guard for thee!
Jezebel's Indiarabia: Dev Patel and Freida Pinto
Would Slumdog Millionaire be this year's Juno? Toronto started the buzz. It won the People's Choice Award just like Juno. Every film enthusiast is talking about it. But would South Asian Actors Patel and Pinto be at the Oscars next year? Maybe not for there is no Jennifer Garner who supports them. May Pinto's sari shine on the red carpet!
Ekra's Afro: Venus and Serena
Yes! No last names. Just Venus and Serena. Not the Tennis Aces but Venus and Serena, the designers. They are no Caten Brothers (yet) but Venus has EleVen (Sports Wear) and Serena, Aneres (Lingerie? Wow!). We admire both their tennis accomplishments but its too way early to comment on their pieces. And yes, it seems that everyone is launching their own line. We cant wait for Sandra Oh to launch hers. Vavooooo!
