The 2014 Asian Film Awards were held on March 27, 2014 in Macau. The Grandmaster <一代宗師> won Best Picture, Best Director, and five other honors, continuing its awards sweep across the Greater China Region.
BEST DRESSED: CARINA LAU
Although husband Tony Leung Chiu Wah was unable to attend and celebrate The Grandmaster’s victory, Carina Lau dominated the red carpet in a Ralph & Russo lace dress. The oversized rosebud added new interest to a classic leg-baring silhouette.
BLUSH OF SPRING
Best New Performer Maggie Jiang‘s pearl-studded gown with pink silk skirt was stunning. It was as fresh as a cherry blossom and had just the right amount of shimmer.
Was it a last minute wardrobe choice for Karena Ng, who wore the same pink floral dress as Eliza Sam at the 2013 TVB Anniversary Gala? Eliza pulled off the gown better with a sideswept ponytail and tasteful diamond jewelry, while Karena’s unruly hair and makeup made her appear washed out.
It’s easy to see where Ankie Beilke inherited her goods looks from. With her mother beside her at the Asian Film Awards, Ankie wore a tasteful blue and yellow one-shoulder dress that also showed off her shapely legs.
Puff sleeves add romantic flair to Dada Chen’s body-hugging sequined gown. Kelly Fu’s Moiselle gown suffers in its two-tiered skirt. Pairing it with the heavy platform heels made the ensemble even more awkward.
Donnie Yen‘s wife Cecilia Wang rocked a transparent gown that would have made Beyonce jealous! The dress’ overt sexiness is balanced by the nude color and generous appliques. Former screen siren, Irene Wan, ditched her bra for an au naturel look, but shocked more with an apparent overdose of botox injections.
Best Actress winner Zhang Ziyi opted for a conservative Armani Prive gray-black gown. Perhaps Ziyi wished the press to focus on her critically-acclaimed career rather than her fashion accomplishments. On the other hand, Kara Hui, looks youthful in a classic white dress and gold belt ensemble.
WORST DRESSED: JESSICA C.
While Jessica C. earned nods from JayneStars for her sexy pantsuit at last year’s Asian Film Awards, her choice of a yellow floral dress this year was a flop. One wonders if she chose the dress exclusively for the plunging neckline.
