a starlet is re-born

we miss wendy puyat-hotung. before she got married to tony hotung (the beautiful couple, left, at the prada fashion show in hong kong last february) in 2002, she was a party fixture who always made the effort to dress up. we always looked forward to seeing her petite frame swathed in cute little dresses by her favorite designers dennis lustico, puey quiƱones and rhett eala. then she left to live in shanghai with her new hubby. then she came back. then last year, she launched a swimwear line called starlet. then she relocated again, this time to hong kong, where she has re-established herself, not just as a party fixture, but also as a swimsuit designer. ladies, a starlet is born...


a starlet is born swimsuit collection is now available at lane crawford (in hong kong, tsim sha tsui and peking road branches) and harvey nichols (in dubai), but fret not; you don't have to fly all the way there just to purchase one of these sexy suits. you can order straight from wendy herself by e-mailing info@fondantedesign.com (ask her to e-mail you all the styles—this is just a sprinkling). this season's collection is all about "fearless, girly fun," wendy told the fash pack. "i used a lot of semi-precious stones and big accents." what we forgot to ask her is, if we order direct, will it cost less than the HK$1,600 retail price tag??

They definitely look like Celine Lopez's Loungerie Lux line LAST YEAR, similar to those pieces Celine consigned at Lily.

she should be back now that she is divorced. Lugi siya doon sa mukhang bading nyang ex-hubby.
