One to Watch: Front Row Fixture Pace Wu

Pace Wu is a bit of an anomaly. The Taiwanese model, actress and singer has the habit of standing out in the front row at various Fashion Weeks, but staying relatively obscure away from the runway, at least outside of Asia. She consistently delivers fashion-forward looks, though, even if the majority never really gets to see her year-round style prowess.

Despite being synonymous with princess-style dresses, Pace occasionally opts for edgier ensembles like the masculine suit she sported to the Jean Paul Gaultier show during Paris Fashion Week Spring 2013 late last September. Pink accessories in the form of a belt, a clutch by Olympia Le-Tan and Brian Atwood pumps brought a feminine vibe to the look. Stella McCartney’s electric blue lace jumpsuit helped Pace get noticed sitting in the front row at the designer’s Spring 2013 presentation. A Stella McCartney Falabella clutch and nude Dolly pumps from Charlotte Olympia completed the look.

She was a vision in white at the Chloe Spring 2013 show that same day. Pace paired a crisp white long sleeve blouse with a coordinating perforated maxi skirt and neutral-colored sandals. Checking out Louis Vuitton's latest collection was also on Pace's busy Paris Fashion Week Spring 2013 schedule. Her embroidered Pre-Fall 2012 belted green dress was simply styled with black pumps.

The multi-talented star topped off this bow-accented baby blue Viktor & Rolf Spring 2013 dress with a white blazer for the brand’s Fall 2013 unveiling this past March. A pale pink clutch and Jimmy Choo Greta ankle strap peep-toe pumps served as accessories. Pace obviously loved what she saw coming down Chloe’s Spring 2013 runway since she wore one of the looks to the fashion house’s Fall 2013 show. This off-white outfit featured a sleeveless top with striking silver embellished arrows and was complemented by silver Jimmy Choo Lance sandals.

It was a romantic pink Valentino Spring 2013 lace gown for Pace at the Valentino Fall 2013 Paris presentation. She also carried a pink embellished clutch. Elie Saab’s green beaded dress was her polished pick for her last show of the week. Pace capped off the look with Elie Saab wedges.

When it came time for the Fall 2013 Couture shows over in Paris, Pace hit up several shows in true style. She made quite an impression in a floral Giambattista Valli Spring 2013 Couture creation with tulle accent. This blue Ulyana Sergeenko Spring 2013 Couture dress Pace selected for the Bulgari Diva Event unveiling the brand’s High Jewellery Diva collection was all about sophisticated structure. Bulgari supplied both her jewels and that top-handle purple bag, while Christian Louboutin was the source of those gold peep-toes.

We sincerely hope that Pace’s borderline perfect Fashion Week sense earns the underrated style star a larger fan base. In the meantime, we’ll just look forward to the next front row opportunity to appreciate her stellar style.
