From Kylie Jenner to Hailey Bieber and Gigi Hadid, we’re pretty much hooked on Hollywood celebs’ most iconic fashion looks. Pretty sure your Instagram feed is filled with their recent outfits (which you try to recreate, of course). But, Holy Cow! Have you taken a look at our local fashionistas’, who have the best fashion sense and also some of the best looks ever? These fashionistas have become household names in Malaysia and are even surfacing internationally.
From being fashion trendsetters to starting their own businesses and appearing on magazines and commercials, let’s take a swift look at the Top 5 Coolest Malaysian Fashionistas.
1. Nur Fazura
If you live in Malaysia and don’t even know of her existence, shut the Goddamn door. An iconic woman in Malaysia’s fashion industry, singer, actress and TV host Nur Fazura Sharifuddin is considered one of the most stylish women in our country. An interesting fact about her: she pursued a degree at Fashion Designing College, but later quit. Today, ironically, she is one of Malaysia’s top fashionistas that youngsters look up to. Every event, tv programme, and red carpet sees her in an outfit that will never let you down. Fazura has done it all – you name it, she’s worn it. Glam, casuals, dolled-up, sophisticated looks and more!
The highlight of her fashion stardom is her iconic finale runway at KL Fashion Week, when she stunned the crowd with her brilliant finale runway performance. Fazura has been featured in films and hosted television programmes and lately, even starring in her reality show, Facing Up To Fazura, which aired all over Asia. Take a look at some of her fashion looks that never fail to have us zooming in on her photos.
2. Sazzy Falak
The hottest fashion enthusiast, who is also a loving mother of two, Sazzy Falak is an emcee, actress and entrepreneur who is the Goddess of street fashion. Putting her passion for fashion into action, she is the founder of Fashion KL by Sazzy Falak, a label that is designed by her and with collections handpicked by the queen herself. A brand that infuses both femininity and strength that define every woman out there, the label is a mixture of elegance and ferocity. And the collections are to die for.
She wishes to create “everyday looks” which prove that even when you’re doing nothing at all, you can still choose to be stylish. To sum up, Sazzy Falak’s fashion has an edgy element, a classy look and also a womanly touch to it. And she freaking rocks her outfits every time.
3. Stephanie Lim
A fashion lover who certainly paved her own path in the fashion industry, Stephanie Lim is a top Malaysian fashionista who we just cannot overlook. Her aura, beauty and the clothes she chooses to wear… there’s just one word to describe her – alluring. As much as she loves fashion, you can often see her travelling to sensational destinations on her Instagram – and what better way to flaunt her amazing fashion sense than to incorporate that into her travels. She has an outfit for every season and every occasion. Rather than follow trends, Stephanie Lim is more fond of creating her signature styles and being the trendsetter herself.
Winner of a number of awards over the years, like the Female Magazine Blogger Awards and GUESS Jeans Blogger Awards, Stephanie Lim advises young and aspiring fashionistas to “flaunt what you have” – and I couldn’t agree more.
4.Datin Vivy Yusof
Vivy Yusof needs no introduction. An entrepreneur who is the co-founder of FashionValet and the successful fashion brand, dUCK, a company that sells the best scarf collections for women, Vivy Yusof aims to allow women to express themselves by styling their looks with fashionable dUCK scarves. She said that fashion has always been a creative outlet that she utilizes to express herself whenever she can. Pretty much the the story behind the establishment of dUCK, through which she encourages women to make their lasting impression through fashion.
Not only has she won several awards and features constantly in high-profile magazines, Vivy Yusof is also one of Malaysia’s top bloggers with a monthly hit of 250,000 on her Proudduck blogs. She is also an international figure featuring on BBC, New York Times and Forbes.
5. Amanda Liu
Amanda Liu’s story is kind of an interesting one, since her fashionista status did not begin with fashion. Back in 2007, she started off by being a regular blogger who showcased her daily life. After her enrollment into college, Amanda started paying more attention to her dressing sense and figuring out her personal style. She would regularly post her outfits on social media, and apart from being a social media influencer, she also took on a job as a buyer for an e-commerce company. Amanda Liu really enjoys fashion and dressing herself in various, unique styles, especially when doing product reviews. And she pretty much carved her name as the “OOTD Queen” with her attractive choices of outfits daily.
