“A thing of beauty is a joy forever” is the poem by John Keats, but also the belief of this Taiwanese It girl. Her sartorial elegance helps her stand out from all other beautiful women she’s surrounded by. Like her life philosophy, all the items she wears and the stuff she puts in her house have to be strictly scrutinised.
