It's no secret that I am a big fan of dressing in chic, head-to-toe black, and the Shu Pei for Harper's Bazaar editorial spread demonstrates just how pretty the look can be.

While all-black wardrobes often get a reputation of being too harsh and gloomy, that is clearly not always the case. Wearing Fendi on the cover of the October 2011 issue of Harper's Bazaar Singapore, Shu Pei looks graceful and elegant.

Shot by famed photographer Gan and styled by Harper's Bazaar Singapore fashion editor, Kenneth Goh, the editorial spread manages to exude femininity and elegance, rather than a stark, gothic look that can often be the result of monochromatic looks.

Take a look at the Shu Pei for Harper's Bazaar shoot and see for yourself just how lovely black can be.
