Can you believe that the annual Star Awards is 25 years old? Singapore’s most important awards for the Mandarin entertainment scene was held on Sunday, April 14, and local and international celebrities pulled out all the stops for the red carpet event. Here are our picks for best and worst dressed celebrity mummies of the Star Awards 2019.
1 / 11Load more
2 / 11 Zoe TayLoad more
Kicking things off is Zoe Tay in this dramatic ruffled off-shouldered number. To match, she chose gradient-coloured earrings and a stunning cocktail ring. Congrats to Zoe for winning the Best Actress award for her role in A Million Dollar Dream!
3 / 11 Fann WongLoad more
Like a true style diva, Fann Wong packed two outfits to this year’s Star Awards, and we’ve got heart-eyes for her second dress from Valentino. Featuring intricate beading and embellishments, this spectacular number is only made better by her dashing husband Christopher Lee at her side.
4 / 11 Cecilia CheungLoad more
Cecilia Cheung was a textbook example of how to look like a star 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. Take notes.
5 / 11 Xiang YunLoad more
A simple yet elegant floral dress was Xiang Yun’s garment of choice, but it was on point. Matched with simple pearl studs with her hair in curls, the veteran actress looked like a glamorous actress from the 60s. She certainly schooled us on how to look amazing and appropriate for her age, without looking matronly.
6 / 11 Quan YifengLoad more
Blush pink is certainly Quan Yifeng’s colour. Appearing on the red carpet in a feminine one-shoulder dress that exemplified her collarbone, the hue and the sparkles brightened her mien and made her look polished and sharp.
7 / 11 Joanne PehLoad more
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.
8 / 11 Vivian LaiLoad more
That weird green-grey shade was not Vivian Lai’s best friend because it made the effervescent actress-host look a tad washed out. Plus, the shape of the dress was also not particularly flattering — it gave her usually petite figure an odd boxy silhouette.
9 / 11 Chen XiuhuanLoad more
Too. Many. Details. From the powder pink colour to the oversized bow placed at the crotch to the oddly draped skirt and awkward slit, Chen Xiuhuan looked rather overwhelmed in this unflattering number. Still, props to the actress for giving this look a go, and congrats to her for winning one of the Top Ten Most Popular Female Artists trophies this year!
10 / 11 Aileen TanLoad more
This is not a bad outfit. But the silhouette was not flattering for the esteemed actress — it didn’t compliment Aileen Tan‘s feminine curves and made her look boxy instead. We do love how powerful her shoulders look with the asymmetric top, though.
11 / 11 Pan LinglingLoad more
Pan Lingling’s polka dotted Carolina Herrera number made her look like she was heading for an upscale weekend brunch rather than an awards ceremony. She looked sweet, but it was the Star Awards 2019, after all.
