Hi there, can we be friends please?
Hollywood celebrities may inspire us on many levels (fashion, beauty, life, etc), but we believe our local Malaysian celebs probably share a deeper connection with us thanks to one major similarity: our country.
Over the years, female has featured many stylish and inspirational celebs; local and international but if you’ve missed out on some of them, take a look below at five our faves so far with five of our most favourite quotes from them!

3. Andrea Fonseka

Who makes you laugh? “People who do silly things – like get Double-D breast implants and then lie about it. I mean, seriously? Seriously!”
How would you define your style? “Crazy-hippie-chic, I guess. I throw on whatever I feel life… sometimes bordering on looking boyish. Comfort is key though.”
My secret to staying beautiful… “I strongly believe when one is happy on the inside, beauty will reflect on the outside.”
Your weapon of seduction is… “wish I could say my charm and wit, but realistically, people tell me it’s the eyes. Yet to be proven…”
A song you love? “I could listen to Little Wing by Jimi Hendrix over and over again.”
Your biggest challenge in life so far… “When I left my 9-5 job to take on radio on top of TV hosting; it was definitely a good challenge which called for a shift in priorities, routine and mindset. A remarkable learning process I would never trade for the world.”
