Eye Candy : Han Hyo Joo for W

Han Hyo Joo is a vision of refined elegance wearing fashions and accessories by Chanel in this W Korea editorial photographed by Kim Yeong Jun. I really like the chic simplicity of the black and white styling. I've yet to watch any of her films but I'm looking forward to catching Masquerade/Gwanghae which I've heard is excellent soon. The last drama I watched with Hyo Joo was Brilliant Legacy. She and Lee Seung Gi were so cute together in that. I was impressed by what a great sport she was on Running Man when she actually volunteered herself for the mission to get her hair permed. It didn't look attractive even on her and she just took it all in stride. The pretty actress plays a rookie cop in the upcoming action thriller Cold Eyes/Stakeout which features Jung Woo Sung as a villain for the first time in his career.

Health update: My ankle is feeling much better this week. I'm even mobile again. I suspect my vertigo may have something to do with a magnesium deficiency which I'm trying to correct with supplements and epsom salt baths. I'm hopeful that this will help. Thank you everyone for your kindness and support!

  4. This photoshoot of her is absolutely exquisite Rowena!!! Pinning this one too! I love the black & white design. Elegance indeed. So glad you are feeling better! And I love your new haircut! I commented, but then this other guy made a snarky comment about hair? and that you were totally beautiful. So I erased my comment. Well of course I know that! I was complimenting you on your hair, because previously you had talked about changing it. I just wanted you to know why I did that. I was leaving a comment for YOU. I didn't expect someone to comment about MY comment. LOL Sending healing wishes your way doll.

  18. She is really pretty, and good for her for getting her hair permed for a mission. I love how you know all these little facts about actors/actresses.

    I'm so glad to hear you are feeling a bit better. If you can have nuts, you might try brazil nuts. They taste like dirt but have a lot of vitamins and minerals in them that people seem to be lacking. I hope you are having a good weekend!

  19. First of all, I'm glad to hear that your ankle is getting better, sweetie! You really deserve to get your health back in shape, plus I really miss your regular posting!
    Secondly, this is one of the most visually stunning editorials I've ever seen. It proves how much impact a simple black & white combo can have. Plus, everything always looks better with a little Chanel sparkle, right? :)

    Sending you big hugs, my dear!
