Trust a lady whose mother is a style icon to dish out one of the most fas­ci­nat­ing things about fash­ion. “It’s amaz­ing how ev­ery­thing just keeps re­peat­ing it­self!” says Kore­anAmer­i­can Shawna Yap, whose style reper­toire is just as ir­rev­er­ent as her own per­son­al­ity. “Look­ing through my mother’s wardrobe through­out the years made me re­alise how trends kept go­ing around in cir­cles,” she ex­plains. True to that thought, her power-suit look for our shoot is rem­i­nis­cent of the ac­tress Joan Craw­ford in MGM’s 1933 To­day We Live. Paired with a crisp white shirt, tai­lored trousers, and a beret, Shawna brought Joan Craw­ford back to life, and it was her spark and charm that played the part. “To me, hap­pi­ness is beauty. And the hap­pi­est peo­ple are the most beau­ti­ful of all.”
