What is it with Asian women that makes them look much younger than they actually are?
Kelly Hu, for example, looks amazing at 45. This much we can say after seeing the Chinese actress practically look like a 20-something as she exited an office building in Los Angeles yesterday. Seriously, we felt like old wrinkled trolls over here because she looked so young, fresh, and oozing with sex appeal.

As much as we’d love to talk about what her secret to the fountain of youth is, Kelly is actually here today because of her outfit.
For one, we are crushing on her draped and wrapped asymmetrical dress. It’s one of those pieces that you can just throw on to look fabulous in a snap. Belt it around the waist and dress it up with heels to turn it into a cocktail-ready frock.
Of course, the other reason why we’re style-stalking Kelly today is because we dig her ankle-wrap wedges. We like how she chose a metallic-neutral pair that matched her dress.

If you think the shoes look quite familiar, that’s because they’re from Diane von Furstenberg — the “Opal.” They feature horizontal straps at the front and thick crisscross straps that wrap around the ankles. These sandals are unique (compared with other sandals) because of the asymmetrically stacked layers of wood that make up the wedge heels.
The ‘Opal’ also comes in a variety of renditions from classic leather to mixed media, solid to animal print, and monochromatic to color-block. They also have it in metallic gold if you want a different look.
