If you don’t know who Gok Wan is, read on my friends, read on!
Gok Wan is officially my new BFF (except you honey), only problem is, we have never actually met. HOPEFULLY this will change in two weeks time when Gok Wan comes to town!
Ladies (and gents) Gok is the gay male version of Trinny and Susannah (but nicer and with cooler hair – no offense T & S). He has a few shows on Foxtel – Gok’s Fashion Fix, How to Look Good Naked (the UK version, not the US version) basically he is your all round fashion guru. He is an expert on women’s body shapes, he LOOOOOOOOOVES boobs (but in a gay man way) and he is great at finding High Street (or what we call Chain Store) options to the latest and greatest fashion trends.
I love how Gok gets away with totally motor-boating women’s boobs (if you don’t know what that is, Google it. On second thought, don’t), feeling up their bums and basically touching them up without them minding. He really makes women feel like he cares about them, and more importantly, he makes women change how they feel about themselves.
Point of the story…. Gok’s mission is all about making women feel good about what they have! (hmmm….. sounds like someone else we know right?). He makes women confront their demons, learn to look at the reflection in the mirror in a positive light and realise that maybe the body they have is not as bad as they think! LOVE HIM! (also, the fact that he called himself Aunty Gok makes me love him even more!)
So imagine my excitement when I see that Gok is coming to Australia!! (I almost wee’d my pants! – too much? sorry, I’m excitable). And if you can’t make Tuesday the 11th October at Westfield Garden City, he is ALSO going to be a Westfield Chermside on Wednesday 12th Oct (do you think it would be considered stalking if I went to both events?! Don’t answer that.)

So why should I go along? I hear you say. Well even though Gok is a ‘celebrity stylist’, he really seems to care about women, and his genuineness and passion for making women feel good comes across in everything he does – books, tv or live shows.
He has the same kinds of ideas about women that I do, he is all about empowering women with clothing, getting them to focus on the good parts of their bodies (because we ALL have them) and teaching them how to distract from the not so good parts.
His advice is smart, easy to understand, and I just love that he called boobs “bangers” all the time!
Ok, enough of the mindless gushing (how many times have you rolled your eyes, come’on, three? four?) just make sure if you have a change, you go and learn a little bit from this fabulous, fashion fairy! (and I’m sure he wouldn’t mind me calling him that… who wouldn’t want to be called fabulous…..)
Are you already a Gok fan? Or are Trinny and Susannah more to you liking? Or do you all think they are a waste of time?
