We see every year new-to-the-eye fashion trends from different public icons. Some may see it weird, others call it artistry and most are likely to follow or mimic these trends. From hairstyles to funky sneakers to oversized accessories, still these were patronized by many.

Kpop stars would be first on the list to spread these fashion trends. Well, this could be a creative way of marketing these artists.

From last year’s dubstep break fever, which were popularized by Bigbang and other famous Korean male and female groups, some predictable fashion trends are popping out.

The veteran journalist and column writer Ricky Lo had an interview with the stars of the movie “Les Miserables” Anne Hathaway (The Princess Diaries, Havoc, The Devil Wears Prada, Get Smart, Bride Wars, Love and Other Drugs, The Dark Knight Rises) and Amanda Seyfried (Chloe, Dear John, In Time, Gone).

But the most epic, to have all the bashers, supporters and netizens alike to react on the interview was with Anne. The interview started when Lo questions Anne about her weight loss for “Les Miserables” which the actress refused to answer. Then in the end, she showed an unfavorable reaction when Lo requested her to invite her fans in the Philippines to watch the movie.

This became viral over all social networking sites and comments from different points of view,

“Lo can’t handle interviews with big celebrities”;

“This was a disaster for both sides”;

“Lo should have prepared better questions to keep the celebrity engaged in the conversation”;

“He doesn't react well with Anne Hathaway answers”;

Ruffa Gutierrez’s Twitter account posted the link, saying “She (Hathaway) suddenly switched to ‘bitchiness’”; and

Jim Paredes in a Facebook thread described the interview as “a big cultural gap.”

Hmmm…watch here to judge for yourself.

In 19th-century France, Jean Valjean, who for decades has been hunted by the ruthless policeman Javert after he breaks parole, agrees to care for factory worker Fantine's daughter, Cosette. The fateful decision changes their lives forever.
