From a daytime TV host to becoming an all-around fashion trendsetter, the perennially chic socialite and entrepreneur is one of Malaysia’s most prominent style icons. Here’s why

Though notable for her skills as a TV host thanks to her past work experiences—particularly for her stint at E! News Asia from way back in 2010—Marion has gained a following within the fashion community for her impeccable sartorial choices and the grace and allure in which she presents herself. Not just a homegrown public figure, the beauty is recognised globally, having made Vogue magazine’s VougeWorld 100 back in 2020, a curated list of distinctive and diverse creators across the globe.

At the recent Haute Couture Week AW22, Marion made an appearance at several shows, from Giambattista Valli to Schiaparelli, Elie Saab and more, looking every inch the fashion star she is, decked a plethora of picture-worthy ‘fits including a designer printed pantsuit, bold body-hugging numbers and masculine tailoring, all complemented by amazing hair and makeup, of course. Here, we go through her looks as posted by the stylista herself on Instagram and take away some style tips for ourselves.

Crank up the colour

Not afraid to embrace and flaunt bright hues, here, the fashionista dons a matching printed silk crop top and pants combo from Versace SS22, paired with a bubblegum pink Chanel crossbody bag. With her hair done up in big, voluminous waves, we love the summery, retro-esque vibe of her entire look.

A work of art

Here, Marion is a vision of perfection in a top-to-toe black and gold Schiaparelli look from Spring 2022 RTW, comprising a column dress attached to a gilded brass jewellery necklace, and surrealist bijoux.

Romantic ruffles

Showcasing her feminine side in tandem with the Giambattista Valli show, Marion wears a one-shoulder mini dress in white, draped expertly in layers of tulle. She pairs it with a white Hermès Mini Kelly bag.

Power pantsuit

For a beautiful day under the Parisian sun, Marion does masculine tailoring in a slightly oversized pink pantsuit with strong a shoulder silhouette and cut-out details, while holding a top-handle Louis Vuitton monogram vanity bag. Shop a similar-looking outfit here.

Minimalist in monochrome

A black and white combo never goes out of style and here, Marion wears a v-neck blouse, embellished with an oversized flower on one shoulder, tucked inside a flared black pair of trousers. In her hands, she holds the sparkly new Valentino Garavani Locò embroidered small shoulder bag that’s covered with Swarovski crystals. Simply stunning.
