  With Fashion Month in full force; straight-off-the-runway front-row looks, cool after-party fits, and the most fashionable sightseeing outfits are the signs of a Fashion Week well spent. In between highly-anticipated shows — Burberry, Gucci and Prada to name a few — there was no shortage of celebrities elevating their fashion game in the major fashion capitals. 

Fulfilling their roles as brand ambassadors, Asian celebrities — in particular Thai and K-pop stars — took over the VIP sections and made the most glamorous displays of style. In the streets of London and Milan, Bright Vachirawit, ENHYPHEN, Heart Evangelista, and Dew Jirawat were among the crowd of well-dressed show attendants. Elsewhere, Asian stars such as Gulf Kanawut and Song Kang supported fashion brands remotely, showing off the most dapper looks. 

Read on to discover the stars who sported the best Fashion Week looks and made it to the latest installment of EnVi’s Best Looks of the Week

Hanni Embraced Y2K at Gucci

Since her appointment as brand ambassador for Gucci, Hanni of NewJeans has attended a plethora of star-studded events. At the Gucci Spring 2024 show, the singer embraced the Y2K cool girl aesthetics and stunned in a cropped baby tee, patent leather midi skirt, and cherry cola slingback heels. To take the ensemble to the next level and nodding to her group’s Y2K aesthetic, Hanni sported a blunt hime cut wig courtesy of celebrity hairstylist Gabe Sin. Without a doubt, this standout outfit is one for the luxury fashion books! 

Nani’s Modern Look at Emporio Armani

Joining the roster of Thai stars dominating luxury fashion, Nani (Hirunkit Changkham) was spotted at the Emporio Armani Spring Summer 2024 presentation in a sleek aubergine number. A rich purple cardigan was draped over his shoulders with a matching printed sweater. The knitwear pieces were paired with pleated leather trousers, dark raisin-hued gloves, and chunky black shoes. Soft pink makeup and a silky knotted scarf finished off this modern dandy look. 

Mika Flaunted Cool Guy Style at Bottega Veneta

Not a season goes by without Japanese-American star Mika making headlines with his fashion appearances and this Spring Summer 2024 Fashion Week has been no exception. The singer and model was present at the Bottega Veneta show on September 23, smartly dressed in a patterned yellow sweater, black leather trousers, and matching chunky sole shoes. Mika, who flaunts a long list of luxury fashion associations, is a regular face at the Italian brand’s events and often collaborates with them for campaigns and endorsements.

Heart Evangelista’s Refreshing Onitsuka Tiger Fit

Fashion icon Heart Evangelista sported a handful of fashionable looks to the front rows of Alberta Ferretti, Tods, Roberto Cavalli, and nearly every show in the Milan fashion calendar. However, one of her standout looks was the super chic, but super comfortable ensemble she took to Onitsuka Tiger’s show. Featuring a draped ecro robe, a pair of high-top sneakers, and a bunch of statement bracelets and rings, the outfit was as occasion-appropriate as it was refreshing. Those who follow the Pinoy fashionista already know of her versatility but this look further demonstrated her ability to explore new fashion realms — whoever said that glamour and comfort can’t go hand in hand, clearly hasn’t seen her rock the streets of Milan!  

Miyeon’s LDB for Jimmy Choo

After her appointment as a global ambassador for Jimmy Choo, (G)I-DLE’s Miyeon was present at the brand’s Spring Summer 2024 collection unveiling in Milan. The powerhouse vocalist embraced her glamorous side in a LBD with a feathered hem and ornate tights that fit her like a glove. To accessorize, the artist sported a Jimmy Choo Diamond Top Handle in the crook of her arm. Pin-straight hair, gold jewelry, and glossy peach makeup topped off this ever-so-chic fit. 

Song Kang’s Remote Front Row Suiting

Unlike previous seasons, Prada ambassador Song Kang could only support the brand’s Spring Summer 2024 show remotely. The South Korean actor posed for Instagram, dressed in an oversized black suit courtesy of the Italian fashion house. The casual suit was accessorized with chunky dress shoes and a dainty Prada Brushed leather Mini-bag with Shoulder Strap. Tousled with a dab of matte pomade, the actor rocked a wavy mini mullet with spiked bangs for the occasion. As a final touch, his brows were neatly filled and his lips were blotted with soft, rose lipstick to balance out the deeper hues of the outfit. 

Yujin’s Lesson on Sophistication at Fendi

After becoming Fendi’s newest it girl in early 2023, IVE’s Yujin made a highly-awaited appearance at the Fendi Spring Summer 2024 show in Milan. The vocalist wore a thin-strapped, gray dress that delicately hugged her figure. Translucent, gray lace danced around her knees for a feminine touch while her patent woven bag bestowed the look with an edge. To complement the chic get-up, trendy wet hair framed her face, her eyes were lined with a generous amount of black eyeliner and her lips were blushed with a vampy lip product. As Fendi famously champions the quiet luxury aesthetic, Yujin’s front-row outfit was a lesson in effortlessly cool and youthful sophistication. 

ENHYPEN Stole the Spotlight at Prada

K-pop septet ENHYPEN made a case for coordinated looks at Prada’s Spring Summer 2024 show. The million-seller group arrived at the event showcasing the range of Prada’s outerwear offerings — from a color-block coat and suede jacket to knitwear and tailoring. Balancing their roles as members of a group, but without sacrificing individuality; Heeseung, Jay, Jake, Sunghoon, Sunoo, Jungwon and Ni-ki showed a united front by opting for black trousers and Prada’s signature chunky footwear. 

With the amount of showgoers crowding around the group to get a glimpse of their looks, it is safe to state they perfectly embodied Prada’s ethos. People couldn’t expect anything less from the brand’s ultimate group ambassador. After all, the septet is responsible for the greatest MIV® (Media Impact Value) generating front-row appearance at a Prada show — last February Launchmetrics reported that the group racked up $11.2 million in MIV®  after attending the menswear FW23 show

Bright’s British Gentleman Get-Up in London 

Thai singer and actor Bright Vachirawit turned heads with his modern take on Burberry elegance at the brand’s Spring Summer 2024 show, but the rest of his Fashion Week wardrobe didn’t go unnoticed. While sightseeing in London, the Burberry ambassador also sported the most classic British gentleman get-up — a classic trenchcoat. Bright kept his outfit casually sophisticated mixing closet staples such as a simple wool sweater and black trousers with chunky Chelsea boots to add an edge. If you’re looking for outfit inspiration for the fall, take notes from Bright’s stylish ensemble.

Liza Soberano Channeled Audrey Hepburn at Prada

Liza Soberano attended the Prada Spring 2024 fashion show wearing a tailored charcoal gray suit and makeup fit for Hollywood royalty. Cloaked in an oversized suit jacket with translucent tights to match, the star’s outfit was cinched with a chunky belt and decorated with statement silver jewelry. Hair-wise, Liza sported spiked, baby bangs with a sleek updo apt for breakfast at Tiffany’s. Smokey liner and spider lashes framed her eyes beautifully while the rest of her face stayed glowy and bronzed for an added touch of glamour. 

Gulf Kanawut Stunned at Gucci 

Gulf Kanawut, Thai actor and Gucci’s Friend of the House, didn’t make it to the brand’s show in Milan this season. However, the star joined a slew of popular names in Thai entertainment to watch the show remotely.  For the occasion, Gulf flexed his effortlessly classy style, opting for a sleek black suit paired with Gucci staples: a pair of 1953 Horsebit Loafers and the Gucci Horsebit 1955 bag. Gulf, who previously graced the Gucci Cruise show in Seoul, has been a recurrent face at brand events this year. He has consistently rocked the most stylish looks including a summer-appropriate iteration of the Canadian tuxedo, so his take on remote front-row fashion is yet another flawless addition to his Gucci-filled lookbook. 

Win Metawin’s Prada Slays

After attending Prada Mode in Seoul, Win Metawin jet-setted across the globe for Prada’s SS24 fashion show in Milan. The Thai actor chose a softer rendition of the fashion house’s classic pieces. A soft, creamy coat with a floating sailor collar from Prada’s FW23 collection sat atop Win’s shoulders. Bestowing an edgier element, Prada’s signature black slacks and lace-up shoes completed this look. 

Turning the clock to night mode, the heartthrob later stepped out for the after-party in a textured Nappa leather jacket, fitted tank, and tailored slacks. Barely-there glowy base makeup, neat brows and a few pieces of spiked fringe accentuated Win’s facial structure to perfection. 

Dew’s Onitsuka Tiger Sightseeing Fit

Since departing to Milan, F4 Thailand star Jirawat Sutivanichsak — better known as Dew — has kept the world updated about his Fashion Week wardrobe. And he hasn’t slacked even while casually roaming the streets of Milan. Perfectly transitioning into the new season, the actor styled an eclectic selection of items including nylon pants, a quilted vest, a gray wool coat and a pair of statement sneakers. While unconventional, Dew’s interpretation of Onitsuka Tiger’s staples proved that a fabulous outfit doesn’t have to be constrained to a single style.
