Another week accomplished! If you've been too busy to catch up on the latest happenings this past couple of days, don't worry because we've got your back with this week's Insider Roundup. From people's reactions about Apple's iPhone 11 to Kim Kardashian officially launching her shapewear line, we've got them lined up below for your reading pleasure. 


iPhone 11's new design did not please a lot of people


CI Insider Roundup iPhone11 memes

Ever since the release of the first iPhone in 2007, a lot of people have lined up and anticipated its following models. But while the iPhone XR from 2018 was the subject of awe for many of Apple's patrons, their latest teaser for iPhone 11 didn't incite similar reactions. Some were quick to compare the upgraded dual and tri-camera design to cellular mitosis and even igniting trypophobia (a.k.a. the fear of holes) for other people. And as expected, a wave of memes followed soon after, mocking the phone's design. Still, it seems like the internet's jolly good fun is doing Apple a great favour at spreading the news regarding this new release as it's in almost every platform at the moment. 


Millie Bobby Brown's skincare routine using her new line raised eyebrows



Move over, Shay Mitchell! It looks like we have another faux skincare demo on the loose. Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown was called out by her fans earlier this week for seemingly faking a try-out of her new skincare line, Florence By Mills. Millie, who officially announced the line a couple of weeks ago, went to Instagram to share her routine using the products but fans were quick to note that she was just play-acting. Some indicators include her fully made-up eyes and consistently dry face despite supposedly cleansing twice in the video. The demo has been deleted on Millie's Instagram (but is still up on the brand's YouTube channel; see above) and the star has also apologised. 

Sulwhasoo launches in Sephora Singapore



Moving on to more positive news. Here's something to rejoice about for Sulwhasoo lovers: the beloved brand is now available in Sephora Singapore, both in-store and online. Woohoo! Catch some of the brand's global faves like the First Care Activating Serum EX, the Essential line, and the Bloomstay Vitalizing line on your next visit and get on that upgraded skincare experience, stat!


Kim Kardashians SKIMS shapewear has officially launched



Ending our roundup with news of another launch. Kim Kardashian officially launched her shapewear line SKIMS, which immediately received praise from consumers. The line initially caused some buzz for its former name, Kimono, which even got a request for amendment from the governor of Kyoto himself. Good call on Kim's end for renaming the line as it immediately sold out minutes after its release a couple of days ago, earning the reality TV star and entrepreneur around two million U.S. dollars. The line includes a variety of types and sizes and Kim expressed potentially expanding the line with — wait for it — a pee hole for more ease-of-use.

There’s no designer out there, fashion or otherwise, who is a stranger to adversity. It comes in many different shapes and forms. Be it a creative block, oversaturation of ideas, or just plain boredom, each creator has definitely encountered it in some respect. However, it is in the way they overcome them that marks true creativity and ingenuity.


Alia Bastamam x Lexus


As creative director, Malaysian fashion designer Alia Bastamam is constantly breaking the norm to produce exquisite looks that have become synonymous with her brand. She is someone who has risen well above her peers with carefully crafted garments and thoughtful, beautiful designs that pay close attention to minute details. Above all, they are cut to perfection, flattering the ever-changing feminine figure with grace and flowing ease. Let’s take a look at this year’s creations that will also be shown for the first time at Milan Fashion Week.


Some neutrals from the collection

Alia Bastamam’s pieces are always a delight to behold, gleaming under the spotlights accentuated with elements like intricate drapery, riveting patterns, and enchanting yet wearable shapes, colours and combinations that go straight from the runway to a night out on the town.


A lot of pastels


Constructed with the diversity of modern women in mind, each outfit that came down the runway suited a different type of woman with her own distinct personality, which we absolutely adored. We stan a designer who stands for individuality.

With each collection released and subsequently lauded by the industry’s finest, Alia’s visionary mindset became more and more apparent, capturing the attention of Lexus, a brand long associated with high fashion because of their luxurious designs, attention to detail and superior craftsmanship.


Alia Bastamam also featured dark pieces in her collection

Her trademark persistence and consistency in quality connected strongly with Lexus’ core values and coincided with their brand philosophy. This allowed Lexus to collaborate with Alia to produce a series of videos that encapsulate her journey as a designer through her inspirations, fears and how closely her story intertwines with the three pillars of Lexus’ brand story: “Anticipate. Innovate. Captivate.”
