The end of the year is a festive time for the Hong Kong entertainment industry as the calendar is filled with gala dinners and awards ceremonies. Formerly known as My Astro on Demand Awards, the event has been renamed as TVB Star Awards Malaysia and featured TVB’s most popular stars in attendance.
Myolie Wu’s (胡杏兒) Badgley Mischka gown stood out because she wore red among many neutral-colored dresses that evening. The body-skimming dress emphasized her slender figure. The color blocks of glittering reds were rather eye-catching.
I love Nancy Wu’s (胡定欣) ensemble for the night. From her sleeked back ponytail to her simple but alluring peekaboo black dress, she looked divine.
Mandy Wong (黃智雯) is also on my best-dressed list. Mandy looked pulled together in her one-shoulder strap dress and her jewelry was wisely kept to a minimum.
I love Benjamin Yuen’s (袁伟豪) light blue suit. Perhaps he has the figure to carry any suit well. He was my best-dressed man of the night.
Safe in Neutrals
Tavia Yeung (楊怡) always plays it safe and wears simple yet classy pieces. Tavia’s cream-sequined dress by Viola Chan was gorgeous, but also very safe.
Kenneth Ma’s (馬國明) white floral suit may look frivolous, but somehow, it worked for him.
Another actress who decided to go the safe route was TV Queen of the night, Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣). On closer inspection, the Moiselle dress was not short of details but it makes a muted impression. Bolder makeup would have brightened up her face.
Also suited in blue was Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) in Dorian Ho Homme. While the shade of blue is very sharp, his attire seemed outdated. The cropped pants are best left for the summer and he skipped his socks again.
I am now accustomed to Eliza Sam’s (岑麗香) SYT (Sweet Young Thing) taste. Dressed in a flowing pale peach chiffon dress, Eliza looks like a walking model for Forever 21, personifying the simplicity of youth.
Him Law (羅仲謙) opted for a playful touch and wore a belt adorned with feathers. The conservative jacket does not match his edgy belt and skirt though.
Room for Improvement
Kristal Tin (田蕊妮) failed to make an impression with her gown, in which the bodice may have been too small for her. Perhaps adding a bolder necklace may have added much needed interest.
While florals may have worked for Kenneth Ma, the same cannot be said of Edwin Siu’s (蕭正楠) yellow/black shirt jacket. Edwin’s hair and outfit choice sent him straight back to the 90s.
Elvina Kong (江欣燕) has always been stylish, but her dress was more suited for an informal gathering with friends.
