Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Style -

How did you two first meet? Jac­ques: We met at a com­mon friend’s birth­day party in a bar, and at that time, I was still rel­a­tively new to Kuala Lumpur. I had just moved to Malaysia [ Jac­ques was born and raised in France] just four months prior to that. I was a lit­tle bit lost at that time, so it was then that I got in­tro­duced to Fiona. Fiona: Well, my part of the story was that I walked down from work to our mu­tual friend’s birth­day party in flip-flops, sit­ting by the bar along with a bunch of bags be­cause I didn’t re­ally want to dance. But there was this ran­dom dude who just kept talk­ing to me and I was like “Ugh, this is so an­noy­ing – just leave me alone!” I was re­ally tired hav­ing just got­ten back from Bali, so when a friend brought Jac­ques along, I was like, “No! Not an­other one!” But we got to talk­ing, and he made fun of me and my English ac­cent. I guess that made things mem­o­rable – mak­ing fun of my flip- flops, my ac­cent ... J: She said she was Chi­nese! I was like, “I’m sorry, what?! You’re not Chi­nese.” F: Need­less to say, he didn’t make a good im­pres­sion, but he made an im­pres­sion! Do you re­mem­ber what you both wore that fate­ful night? F: I thought it was go­ing to rain, so I de­cided to wear flip-flops in­stead of my heels in case any­thing bad hap­pens. I def­i­nitely re­mem­ber wear­ing a black skirt paired with a match­ing black blouse ... with flip-flops. Jac­ques, on the other hand, was suited up to the nines. J: It was a pat­terned white shirt, navy trousers with a black tie, and a tie bar. F: I thought he was very stylish. J: I just no­ticed her flip-flops [ Laughs]. Do you think both your styles have changed over the span of your re­la­tion­ship? F: I think I’ve changed. I used to wear lots of short dresses, but I’m def­i­nitely
