Fashion can be pretty intimidating to many people. Some people feel they do not have what it takes to pull off wearing clothes that they see other people wearing all the time.
So you can see, looking good is not easy. And while fashion should be fun, sometimes shopping can be a daunting chore. It has happened to me.

I love my clothes, but there are many times I have to admit that when it comes to coordinating outfits, though I can match solids to prints, but I get lost when it comes to other things and finding something that actually make me feel great about myself since I have a big frame and tend to be big sized….

Thank God for DIVA’s How Do I Look? Asia – the highly
awaited Asian re-imagination of the hit fashion makeover series.
Known best as “Asia’s ultimate fashion fix,” How Do I Look? Asia will make its debut on Monday, 31 August at 8PM on DIVA (Astro Channel 702, DIVA HD 723), NBCUniversal International Networks’ leading entertainment channel for women in Asia.
I was at the press conference for the show at Ben's at Publika and was lucky to meet up with three amazing women, the emcee and host Patricia Knudsen, the host of How Do I Look Asia, the stylish and very fashionable Sazzy Falak and the host of How Do I Look, Jeannie Mai...
|The lovely Patricia Knudsen|
"How Do I Look? Asia" follows Malaysian celebrity and style icon Sazzy Falak as she helps eight fashion victims to the path of fashion enlightenment. Jeannie Mai, host of the original U.S. version, and a familiar face to Asian viewers, features in each episode, setting up the fashion challenges each week
The fashion-challenged victims include onesie-addict/ blogger Apple (Philippines); indie rock guitarist Ariana (Malaysia); mismatch, mishap/ watercolor artist Choc (Taiwan); sales executive, and literally “plain” Jane (Philippines/Australia); overachieving, yet outdated, Lavinya (Malaysia); rebel teacher Lianni (Philippines); romantically-insecure Maisarah (Singapore); and the uninspiringly-dressed motivational speaker Yessinta (Indonesia).
To get a professional look that can be replicated for everyday use, Sazzy will be joined by a guest stylist in each episode:
Liz Uy (Filipina celebrity stylist); Zac Wu (Taiwanese celebrity stylist); Andrea Wong (former editor of Elle Malaysia); and Anindita Saryuf (fashion director of Elle Indonesia).
In each episode, Sazzy and an accomplice – a concerned family member, friend or colleague – will help transform the lucky fashion victim into someone with style. They will be having their wardrobe raided, certain current fashion choices face the “Eww Tube”, one of the iconic features of the original format. The “Eww Tube” is a vacuum cleaner-like machine that literally sucks offending outfits up and away after they have been eliminated by the panel of fashion experts and accomplices.
The transformations featured on the series transcend fashion and style. Viewers will also get to witness the complex and emotional backstories of the victims, whose glamorous new looks, and freshly developed sense of style, act as a catalyst for them to adopt a more positive and confident outlook on life.
“How Do I Look? Asia is a testament to DIVA’s position as the leading women’s entertainment channel in Asia. We are confident that this ground-breaking local production, like its original franchise, will strongly resonate with our core female audiences across the region,” said Christine Fellowes, Managing Director, Asia Pacific, NBCUniversal International Networks.
“Using the insights from various in-depth research initiatives on Asian women that NBCUniversal has conducted and developed over the recent years, How Do I Look? Asia features many of the elements that we found women loved: fabulous and fun makeovers, the hottest fashion trends tailored to Asian sensibilities, inspiring and heart-warming personal stories, and a positive underlying message that encourages every woman to be her best self.”
Jeannie and Sazzy had been making live appearances as they toured Singapore and Malaysia and the two lovely ladies will be headed to Vietnam later this month at Ho Chi Minh City on the 26-27 August 2015, so if you are there on that day, try to see how you can meet them there...
How Do I Look? Asia Season One is presented by regional sponsor Zalora.
In Malaysia, the series is also presented by Marigold Yogurt Drink and Panasonic Beauty.
Clozette is the Official Fashion Social Network of the series,
which is filmed at an NBCUniversal International studio set built in Solaire Resort & Casino, Manila.
