TVB held its annual Sales Presentation on November 4 with over 200 artistes in attendance. Aside from promoting next year’s drama lineup, many stars dressed to impress potential advertisers, flashing designer looks at the red carpet event.
Sporting the best look of the evening, Kate Tsui‘s off-shoulder, ¾ sleeved white dress leaves just right amount of sexily demure and suggestively innocent glow. Her hair is loosely curled and falls sensually on her shoulders.
Priscilla Wong’s easy-going Pius Cheung dress and long, flowing curls radiate a feminine look.
Grace Wong’s rocker look from Dyos is near flawless. Her side-swept hair, large earrings, and dress is beautifully designed. The color of her overall look is understated, but sharp and defines her figure. The only flaw is the length of her dress, as it would look better being a thigh-high dress rather than the awkward mid-calf length.
Eliza Sam pulls off her usual innocent, princess aura yet again. Simple and typical, but she still exudes a radiant charm. The outer sheer and mint green color of her dress from Moreno Bridal emanates her youthfulness.
While the blue undertone of Lindy Chung’s Armani dress is lovely, it fails to highlight the curves of her body and makes her appear flat and boring. The shoes, at a glance, look like water shoes.
Though evidently much larger in frame, Christine Kuo is well-aware of her body and drapes a sheer shawl around her arms and areas that show skin.
Beloved Come Home, Love stars Lai Lok Yi and Queenie Chu make an elegant appearance in their subdued wardrobe choices.
Louis Cheung, with his tall stature and fit physique, pulls of the trench suit well. Paired with the skinny tie and a neat comb-over hairstyle, his overall look is traditional and near flawless.
The usually reserved Natalie Tong wore an intriguing, open-back Doris Q dress, which brings attention to her skeletal frame. The sharp contrast of her red lips and red shoes against her pale skin is eye-catching though.
Ben Wong is rocking a pair of black leather pants. The nude colored bow tie and leather pants give off a more feminine feel.
Grace Chan is equally elegant next to her male counterparts. Her choice in jewelry is understated and does not take the limelight away from her body-fitting dress. Grace’s overall look is runner-up for best dressed this year!
Elena Kong opted for a chic pant look and sheer black top that sexily reveals her black bra.
IN BLACK AND WHITE
Sharon Chan is still in her wedding mindset. Designed by Alex Lam, the layers leading down the train of her dress accentuate her tall and slender frame. As usual, Sharon overdoes it with over-the-top jewelry glamor.
Myolie Wu has been dallying with outfits with teasing cut-out panels. Despite the deep open slit in the front, this Georges Hobeika outfit appears as flat geometric panels on her thin frame.
Nancy Wu looks like she is going to attend a funeral in this Armani mid-calf dress that does nothing for for her bosom.
Elaine Yiu is charmingly dressed in a contrasting black top and white skirt. The v-shaped crop top is feminine and sensual, while the white skirt is sleek and fitting.
Mandy Wong opted for a less formal dress; the loose skirt and her reserved hairdo is prom-like.
Krystal Tin, with her short, boyish rocker hair is chic. But the checkered pattern and shape of the dress makes her figure appear box-like.
The life of being a dad has taken a toll on Moses Chan, who looks as though he rolled out of bed and put on his outfit in between stop lights on the way to the event. His respect for the occasion is evident in his messy hair, loose suit, tennis shoes, and half undone tie.
THE CLEAVAGE CLAN
Long-legged crab, Koni Lui, instead chose to emphasize on her post-pregnancy chest size in this sheer, laced peach dress. Against her yellow skin tone, the Alex Lam dress makes her look motherly.
Similarly, Jess Shum loves to show her cleavage at TVB formal events.
DRESS YOUR AGE
Is it any surprise that Dodo Cheng is yet again in a cutesy Dorian Ho dress that should probably be worn by someone three times younger than her? The bow-styled belt and crystal accents seem more fitting for an eight-year-old.
While Jade Leung‘s hot pink dress screams teen prom, her matriarchal hairstyle ages her look immensely.
Ngo Ka Nin’s rocker outfit is surprisingly stylish and dashing. The combat boots pair well with the loosely fitted leather pants. The contrasting Michael Jackson inspired jacket presents an overall fashionable look.
Sisley Choi’s red dress is predictable, safe, and conventional.
Muscular heartthrob Him Law sported hideous, stretchy black leather pants. The boxy jacket and tight pants give him a football frame that is disproportionate and unbalanced.
Did Lin Xia Wei‘s floral dress take cue from an Ikea Knappa pendant light? Her legs seem ridiculously fragile perched on nude platform heels.
This category says it all – worst dressed all in one picture!
While Katy Kung is young and beautiful, her ballerina look is tacky . The pale color of her dress against her skin tone makes her appear sickly.
What exactly was Joel Chan thinking when he put himself together? Basketball shorts and a colorful eagle jacket…I cannot even fathom.
Maggie Shiu‘s look here is confusing with the outdated motherly dress, blazer thrown over her shoulders to keep warm, and alarming pink earrings.
Note: This article was updated on November 9, 2014 to reflect the correct designer label for Natalie Tong’s dress which should be Doris Q.
