Zoe Tay 

And Zoe strikes gold yet again in CH Carolina Herrera. Now, where’s our ball skirt and turtle neck?

Maybe it’s the mike stand but we are getting Michael Buble vibes from these photos of Elvin.

We usually refrain from wearing red during Chinese New Year for obvious reasons but this one-shoulder cocktail dress is pretty and punchy at the same time. The zip detail at the side gives it an unexpected touch.

Becks looks sweet-chic in this pink lace frock without being saccharine.

We love how Shane is preppy on top, and party at the bottom.

We initially went “Woah, too much red!” when we laid eyes on Jeffrey. But if anyone can go OTT on colours, it’s Jeffrey.

Ya Hui keeps it fun and youthful with her sequined heart sweater and leopard print skirt.

Guys, this is how you pull off the printed suit look without looking like wrapping paper. Are you taking notes, Shane Pow?

Only someone tall and statuesque like Biren can carry off this CH Carolina Herrera floral gown. Gorgeous!

Chen Han Wei

Unlike Jeffrey Xu, who wore the same pink suit to the Mediacorp Campus Opening last year, Han Wei goes for a more casual look sans bow tie and with white Christian Louboutin studded loafers. So who wore it better?

Romeo never disappoints when he suits up – well, except when it’s velvet.

Carrie proves that it’s possible to wear a red hanbok-shaped dress without looking like a giant hong bao.

Sure, Bao En has worn this dress during the GeTai Challenge but even with toned down make-up, the petite singer dazzles in this avant garde gold number.

Double-breasted blazers are a tricky look to pull off but Aloy keeps it stylish (without looking stuffy) by pairing it with tee and chinos. Cute pocket square!

While we wish Bonnie’s emerald green dress was less wrinkled, we love how she paired it with neon necklace and cute camo headband.

Woah black and gold spiked leather jacket – not something one would associate with Chinese New Year but then again getai stars can get away with anything. Adam Lambert would approve.
