Eye Candy : Song Hye Kyo for Harper's Bazaar

Harpers Bazaar Thailand celebrates its 15th anniversary with a special cover and editorial featuring Song Hye Kyo. Modeling a range of Dior designs by Maria Grazia Chiuri, Hye Kyo shows off her versatility looking ethereal in white and edgy and chic in an array of high fashion outfits. No matter what she wears, her radiant beauty stands out and captivates. The black and white series at the end is really striking and my favorite of the pictorial especially the photo with the head dress. I was recently chatting with a fellow fan and we were talking about how she is eternally stunning and seems to be aging backwards. I can't help but think about that quote - that after a certain age, you get the face you deserve.

Despite being one of the trailblazers of the Hallyu wave,  it hasn't always been an easy road for Hye Kyo who's had to face unfounded gossip and unwarranted hate from netizens and other fanbases over the years. It's really admirable how she has always risen above any hate thrown  her way with grace and dignity, never playing the victim or blaming others. She also understands that her status comes with a sense of responsibility. This is reflected in the choices she makes including turning down a lucrative Mitsubishi Motors endorsement deal due to the company's involvement in Japanese war crimes during WWII.  Over the years she has been funding the donation of educational guidebooks to various global historical sites related to the Korean independence movement around the world. She has also focused efforts on providing Korean language services to notable museums around the world. All of this has been executed quietly without agenda or fanfare which is the mark of true philanthropy. She gives from her heart and not for recognition or praise. Hye Kyo has this face because she is truly beautiful both inside and out.

  6. She truly is a beauty. And she definitely tops as the most beautiful women in the world for me. Now not just on the out but the inner too. Which is more important. I had no idea how much she does behind the scenes. It's admirable how it's not just for show as a lot of people like to project. I'm not familiar with her past but to rise above all the hate from netizens is a HUGE feat to be proud of. They can be brutal out there.

  10. Song Hye Kyo is such a natural beauty. I think there is truth in what you say. Inner beauty is often reflected on somebody's face. A gentle and caring person often has a gentle and caring face. Some people posses an inner elegance that is often reflected in their facial expressions and movements. Some ladies don't seem to age at all, and often it is a combination of factors, not just genetics, sometimes it is also about someone's character and lifestyle. Not saying that everyone who ages badly has a bad temper, habits or something like that. Sometimes people age rapidly because grief, illness or other factors they don't have control of. But there are also things we can have control of such as our diet and skincare. Our lifestyle often gets reflected on our face. So, sometimes we do get a face we deserve. Naturally, this only applies to countries where women do have an option of skin care. Unfortunately, a lot of women around the globe don't have this option and have no ways of caring for their skin. We should be grateful for having access to drinkable water, skincare products and other things that allow us to take care of ourselves. Our skin health is not something we should take for granted.

  11. I've always thought she's one of the most beautiful women in the world but didn't know much about her inner beauty. For one thing, I admire her strength for having risen above from that recent gossips and hate due to her divorce. Patriarchism in Korea was especially malicious this time because it was about a strong successful woman wanting to continue on that path.

    She looks gorgeous as ever but I particularly love her hair here. Blunt straight cut with minimal layers is a style I want to try someday.

    Hope you and your loved ones are doing well. I miss you, Rowena! We should have gotten together earlier this year, I regret. Hope everything calms down soon and we can hang out again! <3
