The Starhub TVB Star Awards 2013 was held on 28th September at the Marina Bay Sands Grand Theatre. I was honoured to attend the event and be one of the media guests at the “Green Carpet Special” together with a few other bloggers and writers. It was a tiring day for me as I had just touched down in Singapore earlier that day after a seven day “amazing race” in Malaysia. I didn”t have time to prepare my outfit and get my hair done, so I decided to leave my photos out of this post!

I read a few fashion critiques on the stars” fashion choices that night, and decided to provide some of my own input!

The Starhub TVB Star Awards 2013 Host

TVB star awards 2013
金刚 King Kong and 姚子羚 Elaine Yiu.

Ok, WOW. I often see King Kong as a badass or hooligan character in Hong Kong dramas, but he really looked suave in his suit. And guess what, Elaine Yiu looked very different in person as well, compared to her on-screen appearance. Did she go for braces or something?

Her dress exuded elegance, perfect with her side fringe comb and golden heels. Not exactly eye-catching, but definitely classy.

The Singapore Guests

ABTM Starhub TVB Awards 2013
Ah Boys To Men Cast

I”ve seen them in person in several Fly Entertainment events, and they look pretty smart in their suits. Pardon me if I get their names wrongly, as I did not watch the ABTM films. Weiliang was the center of attraction with his brown suit, followed by Tosh (I guess it”s because of his height and beanie). His double-breasted blazer with its gold contrasting hardware and red accented shirt brought a little “bling” to the team. Noah tried to be a little different with his sunglasses, which is good. Maxi Lim, well, I spotted heeled shoes ( I think).

Starhub TVB Star Awards 2013
Daren Tan, Hayley Woo, Kelvin Mun and Naomi Yeo

The Girl-in-Pinafore cast obviously didn”t discuss their #ootd”s with one another before the event. It”s quite a mismatch! However, individually, I like Daren Tan”s style for that day. Jeans with blazer, a hint of “I”m-not-the-center-of-attraction-but-I”m-still-cool” look. Hayley looked a little over-dressed besides Daren, and my friend commented how it looked like a sari! Well, I still have to give her credit for the bold colours. Naomi looks sweet with her white dress, but I really think Kelvin should change partners with Daren. Perhaps that would be a little more matchy.

TVB Star Awards 2013
Yap Zheng Yan 叶政言 and 李志远

These Kungfu champions definitely look out of place in their suits. Yap Zheng Yan looked pretty lost while Li Zhi Yuan looked like he”s wearing someone else”s suit. But well, at least he showed potential to be eye-candy in the future and I see a hint of Donnie Yen in him.

TVB Star Awards 2013
Anthony Chen and Yeo Yann Yann

This is what I call, for the Red Green Carpet. Yeo Yann Yann got back into shape pretty quickly after her pregnancy. In a royal blue gown, she”s almost perfect beside handsome Anthony Chen. But does anyone find the toga dress worn a little too high up? I hope she didn”t trip on her way back stage though. For the Ilo-Ilo director, Anthony Chen, I prefer his prince charming suit compared to the maroon colour one he wore later in the show.

TVB Star Awards 2013 Fashion
Billy Koh 许环良

Shades, sneakers and printed shirt. The music producer definitely breaks all the rules for the carpet. But well, he”s the guest giving out the prizes, so I will say, he can do what he likes.

The Pixies VS Fairies

Kanny Theng, Tay Kexin, Angel Yeung and Vee
Kanny Theng, Tay Kexin, Angel Yeung and Vee

Showing of their qualities, the Lady First”s cast looked glamourous and lovely. From the front, Kanny definitely stood out from the 4 with her light peach dress. With her nude heels, her legs looked even longer and slimmer! But from the back, I love Angel”s corset  back and Vee”s simple yet sexy back. Too bad, the photographers didn”t catch much of that.

cheryl Wee TVB Star Awards 2013
Cheryl Wee, Silver Ang, Celyn Liew

Pixies first, fairies next. I dare you to disagree with me that both Cheryl Wee and Celyn Liew looked like they stepped out of a fairy tale. I love the flowy pinkish blue dress on Cheryl, but the flower on her chest almost didn”t do her justice. Celyn won my heart with her matchy hair band. Sunshine fairy she is. Now to Silver, she looks stunning with her dress, but being put together with her fellow singer-friends, she looked a tad older, compared to their girly look.

Hong Kong Celebrities at the Starhub TVB Star Awards 2013

TVB Star Awards 2013
Christine Kuo 苟芸慧and Jason Chan 陈智燊

Most articles dissed the outfit Christine Kuo wore, saying how she looked plump (or she was plump) in it. But well, guess what, a slimmer actress might not be able to carry off the dress as well. It might have just slipped off the shoulders! I got to admit, she might not receive as much criticism if she was wearing something else, but well, at least she got plenty of publicity! Jason Chan looked good in his blue suit, but standing beside a lady getting so much In the real world, it seems throughout history, you need both to do well – money and free credit score check that is. media attention (on her figure), he kinda lost out! Well, at least he managed to charm me with his nice accent.

Mag Lam 林欣彤, Him Law 羅仲謙 and Mandy Wong 黃智雯
Mag Lam 林欣彤, Him Law 羅仲謙 and Mandy Wong 黃智雯

WOW. Mag Lam really caught my attention with her earth toned outlook with blonde hair. I thought Mandy Wong”s lime green dress would be attention catching, but with Mag”s fair skin tone, the songstress was practically glowing under the strong light. I think her outfit reminded me of Miley Cyrus” nude bra when she was twerking during the VMAs, either you love it or hate it. For me, I thought it would be better to have something of a different colour for me to focus my attention on, jet black hair perhaps? Now, she”s just a living-glowing person.

Him Law”s maroon velvet jacket and leather pants was something different (material wise) from the rest of the guys. I say, he looked good in it. I”m just glad he”s tanned enough to carry it off.

Michelle Yim 米雪
Michelle Yim 米雪

Well, lime green plus sparkling sequins, Mandy Wong totally looked like a junior besides the glamourous Michelle Yim. (I know she IS a junior). I love her crystal-filled bodice, but her hair was a tad hard to ignore. The colours were bold, her flawless skin (see her back!) which made me wonder what she did to achieve that, but her hair brought all the glamour down to the fifties.

Bosco Wong 黃宗澤, Niki Chow 周丽淇 and Tavia Yeung 杨怡
Bosco Wong 黃宗澤, Niki Chow 周丽淇 and Tavia Yeung 杨怡

For the first time, the guy managed to snatch the attention away from the gorgeous actress. Well, odd combination aside, I have to applaud Bosco for his courage to be different. Pink floral jacket with hot pink socks and sneakers, black trousers and charlie chaplin hat to go with it, if there”s one person you can”t forget, it will be Bosco. Strange enough, Tavia”s elegant and simple dress did kind of match Bosco”s outfit. Maybe that”s why both of them won the “My Favourite TVB Actor and Actress” awards?

Niki Chow”s simple grey dress made her look a tad flat in the front (though her low back was sexy). So, I guess I”m right to say, you would kinda forget her existence besides pink Bosco and matchy Tavia?

The Couples-In-Black

Black seems to be the most popular colour for the carpet. After all the colourful couples, I”ve arranged the celebrities who appeared in black for easy comparison.

Corinna Chamberlain
Corinna Chamberlain 陳明恩, Yao Bin 姚兵

I like Yao Bin”s two-colour suit, and I was kinda hoping he will remove the bottom portion to make it the short blazer similar to the short jacket (for girls) in trend a few years back. Corinna”s punk rockstar look was different from the usual elegant appearance actresses put on. I would say second best dressed (black outfit) compared to the rest.

Grace Wong 王君馨, Law Kwan Moon 罗钧满
Grace Wong 王君馨, Law Kwan Moon 罗钧满

Grace”s outfit is… forgettable. Even Law Kwan Moon looked more dressed up than her. Instead of looking like a glamorous super star, she could easily fit in to the media crowd and not be recognized. Well, I can only say, she had strong competitors. As for Law Kwan Moon, the two tone pants looked like shorts with long socks from afar. It”s a quirky look, especially the big white, square gap in his back, but definitely not something you want to see on a red carpet.

Hong Kong celebrities
Michael Miu 苗侨伟 and wife, Jaime Chik 戚美珍

Michael Miu had an aura which makes girls sigh (hoping their husband will look like him when he”s 55). Matching his wife”s red lipsticks, the red pocket square and sleeve buttons simply made him look classier without being too over-the-top. Jaime Chik”s smart outfit gave her the “I-am-a-capable-wife” look!

Hong Kong celebrities
Kate Tsui 徐子珊 and Raymond Lam 林峰

Maybe Kate Tsui was banking on the diamond necklace to take my attention away from her shiny retro bangs plastered to her head, but it didn”t. But she”s one of the rare celebrities who flaunted her deep cleavage, so kudos to that. Raymond Lam, with his equally retro hair looked like his normal (charming) self. No WOW factor, but he”s safe.

Call me biased, but Myolie”s glittering dress is absolutely stunning. I have no complaints about her short hair, because the gown design (back and front) is amazing enough to make you feel perfect. Usually, I would prefer a sweet pink or nude gloss for the lips, but for her the red lipstick became an acessory, standing out like a red rose. Beside her, Kenneth Ma looked like her knight in shiny (armour).

Prince Charming and Snow White

Linda Chung 鍾嘉欣 and Ruco Chan 陳展鵬

After the perfect black duo, here”s my perfect white! Winning the best dressed award, some criticized her white underwear. But I thought this was a great and unique look. Nude underwear would look even more embarrassing if captured on camera. The shorts not only brought our attention to her long legs, beneath the translucent dress, it”s also almost like a wedding dress! Not every actress can pull this off!

I guess I might have a thing for (good-looking) guys in white suits, but I always believe, dress in something you know you look best in and you are most comfortable in. Then you will just be absolutely charming.
