Dressed in an ethereal all-white lace dress, Paige Chua looked absolutely radiant. The cinched waist helped accentuate her hourglass silhouette while the plunging v-neckline and lace trimming added a dose of feminine sensuality. She finished the look with complementary rose gold and mother-of-pearl accessories with pave diamonds from Bvlgari Serpenti that added a touch of elegance for a pared down yet all-round stylish look.
Looking like a regal princess, Cynthia Koh showed off her best assets in this beautiful strapless dress from Style Lease. We love the midnight blue shade that made her the picture of sophistication, while the dramatic ruffled skirt added a flair befitting of the celebratory occasion.
Decked in a glittery sequin number from Chanel, model-turned-actress Sheila Sim nailed the perfect award-ceremony look. Not only was the plunging neckline a showstopper, her accompanying Chanel accessories and slicked hair-do added a modern, almost rocker-like edge that made her look fierce AF.
Jesseca Liu’s sleek floor-length gown in black complemented her lithe figure and height, but we especially loved how her cape sleeves added a dose of dramatic flair to an otherwise boring LBD. Plus, it didn’t hurt that she was decked out in S$2 million dollars worth of Tiffany & Co. jewellery.
While it might look like a simple black-and-white ensemble from Roksanda, the outfit of Wu Jinyan, breakout star of the Story of Yanxi Palace, sports many interesting contrasting details. The off-white flowy tulle skirt with abstract print was light and airy, while the black sequin top added weight and shine to outfit. The waist-cinching belt was a tasteful final touch. Simply stunning.
Cecilia Cheung was textbook on how to create a wow-worthy appearance on the red carpet. Her feminine dress sported sequins and glitter for that much needed shine, and we love the frilly details that gave her look a jaunty spring with every step. But the best part of the dress lay in the back — there was a surprising deep V-backline that exuded class and sex appeal.
Joanne Peh is not one to shy away from showing up on the red carpet in a unique, and sometimes provocative, dress (remember the side-boob dress?) This year, she didn’t disappoint in a black dress that featured a yin-yang like design made with a translucent print. The high neck might have been a touch modest, but she made up for that with an eye-popping thigh high slit that showed off her long, toned gams.
He Ying Ying shone like a diamond with her choice of a metallic Ralph and Russo dress that made her look like a sci-fi glamazon. The foiled bodice added sparkle to her ensemble and showed off her shoulders and cleavage, while the quirky belt detail and high-waisted skirt gave her height and stature.
Carrie Wong looked 10/10 in a Ralph Lauren strapless number, which she paired with some bling from Tiffany & Co. We love how she opted for a soft makeup look to complement her pastel dress, which accentuates her natural beauty.
Zoe Tay aka Ah Jie wore a Tom Ford dress that made her look effortlessly chic. We love how she kept jewellery to a bare minimum, opting for just Piaget earrings to jazz up her look.
