To celebrate the 140th anniversary of Levi’s iconic 501 jeans, Levi’s introduced its first ever non-denim Levi’s 501 collection and to mark this really special occasion, Levi’s Singapore organised the Levi’s 501 Interpretation Fashion Event where 4 local celebrities, Felicia Chin, Tosh Zhang, Ya Hui & Ian Fang, showcased their Levi’s 501 interpretation in a fashion parade.

Before the event started, we were out and about shooting photographs and here’s me all decked-out in formal wear taking a picture at the Levi’s 501 Interpretation Photo Booth.

The emcee for the day was Ivy Tan, a rather familiar Yes 933FM DJ and I was really privileged to have gotten a seat that had a vantage point for tons of photo opportunities.

Felicia Chin and her fan were the first pair that completed the game without any mistakes and they won the game almost effortlessly.

The next segment of the Levi’s 501 Interpretation Fashion Event was rather interesting because each celebrity had to style a 8 DAYS “Shirtless” Guy based on their personal style interpretation using Levi’s 501 jeans. As the 8 DAYS Shirtless Guys wore a tank top, they were not literally shirtless so don’t expect to see topless guys in this blog entry :P.

Here’s Felicia Chin’s 8 DAYS “Shirtless” Guy after being styled up.

After being styled up by the local celebrities, the audience were called upon by Ivy to vote for their favourite styled-up 8 DAYS Shirtless Guys by sticking their voting slips onto them and voters whom have voted for the winning 8 DAYS Shirtless Guy could walk away with the Levi’s apparels that he was wearing.

Well, as we mentioned, we learnt some fashion and styling tips from the Levi’s 501 Interpretation Fashion Event and here you go:

1). Choose the colours of your outfits that complements your skin tone and hair colour.
2). Outfits that are dark and bold in colours makes you look more serious.
3). Outfits that are bright and lighter in colours makes you look more approachable.
4). When buying jeans, choose one that is comfy and one which matches your style of dressing.
5). Take your time to find the right type of jeans that suits you!

So, head down to the nearest Levi’s store near you and check out the many apparels that Levi’s has to offer! You will definitely be able to find something that matches your style and to top it off, simply upload a photo of yourself in a pair of Levi’s 501 jeans, include a short write-up explaining your style inspiration, and you might just find yourself walking away with $300 cash and a $200 Levi’s Voucher! What’s more, you get to score invites to an exclusive Levi’s 501 party that will be happening in May 2013.

This initiative calls for diversity in subjects and styling and the only consistent thread is the 501 jeans in the photo. Subjects can be both men and women and the 501 jeans can be cut-off, tie-dyed or heavily tailored. All interpretations are fair game.

Good luck!
