CHINA HAPPENINGS™ is pleased to announce that its founder Chiu-Ti Jansen, Publisher of YUE Magazine, has been named to The “New” Best-Dressed List for 2014 by the Daily Fashion Report (DFR), a subscription-based blog dedicated to the high-end fashion. Other personalities named to the 2014 list include: Oscar winners Cate Blanchett, Lupita Nyong’o and Marion Cotillard, Sarah Jessica Parker, Rihanna, David and Victoria Beckham. The list, titled The “New” Best-Dressed List for 2014, hit the wire on June 18, 2014: http://blogger.lookonline.com/2014/06/the-new-best-dressed-list-for-2014.html.
Selected by Marilyn Kirschner, Editor-in-Chief of Look On-Line electronic fashion magazine and previously a senior editor of Harper's Bazaar for over 20 year, the “New” Best-Dressed List captures a variety of looks and styles: The Best Dressed Actresses, The Best Dressed Keeper of the Best Dressed List, The Best Dressed Musician, Composer & Performers, to name just a few. Chiu-Ti Jansen appears in the category of The Best Dressed on the Social Circuit.
On Chiu-Ti Jansen, Kirschner wrote: “What sets her apart? Underdressed is not a word you would ever use to describe this brilliant woman of many talents and facets... She is passionate about everything she does, not the least of which is fashion, and her appreciation of beautiful design is quite evident whenever you see her at high profile events. She goes to great lengths and takes great pains to get her look 100% right, down to the smallest detail, and she is one of those women who always stand out. You cannot help but notice her.”
Chiu-Ti Jansen, who serves on the Board of the Couture Council of Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, commented: “I am a living specimen of Oscar de la Renta’s adage: ‘It's not about what you wear, but about how you live your life.’ Marilyn herself is a wonderful embodiment of unabated passion for fashion’s rich history as well as social relevance. Recognition from a seasoned fashion professional like her is incredibly flattering and humbling. This ‘New’ Best-Dressed List, by placing many of us outside the usual boxes, also invites us to re-think a lot of our pre-conceived categories about people and style.”
