Felicia
Felicia’s Ines Di Santo gown had just the right amount of sexiness and elegance. We also love the subtly matching tassel jewellery and Jimmy Choos.

Verdict: HOT

Pierre
It’s hard to go wrong in a three-piece suit from Hugo Boss.

Verdict: HOT

Rebecca
This Tiger Balm dress – which is from Gucci, believe it or not – is an embarrassing blemish on Rebecca’s otherwise flawless red carpet repertoire.  

Verdict: NOT

Zhang Zhen Huan
We’re not fans of the velvety sheen, but at least this look makes him stand out from the others

Verdict: HOT 

Desmond Tan
A boring, but inoffensive suit.

Verdict: HOT

Romeo Tan

Classy and refined. All this look (courtesy of Burberry, Cartier, and Shunji Matsuo) is missing is a scotch on the rocks.

Verdict: HOT

Ian Fang
Aside from the hair (sorry Ian, the middle parting and yellow locks have yet to grow on us), this is a pretty safe and sophisticated look.

Verdict: HOT

Shane Pow
Is Shane cosplaying as a Christmas gift or what.

Verdict: NOT

Aloysius Pang
Meanwhile, Aloy’s decked out in the Mediacorp logo’s old colour scheme. Oops. But still, it could be worse.

Verdict: HOT

Xubin
An inexplicable jacket motif saves this black and white outfit from being a complete bore.

Verdict: HOT

Jeffrey Xu
We know that Rose Quartz is Pantone’s colour of the year, but this much pink is just overkill.

Verdict: Conflicted.  On the one hand, he looks like a vanguard sheet. On the other hand, he still manages to look…cute and statuesque?! Life officially ain’t fair.

Eh, what happened to the red dress? This one isn’t nearly as nice to look at.

Verdict: NOT

We’re giving out “HOT” points all around here. Special mention goes to Rui En’s Cartier jewelleryn (worth six figures), Elvin’s immaculately tailored Dolce & Gabbana suit, and Jesseca’s silhouette-skimming Stella McCartney gown.

Verdict: HOT

It’s not that this outfit is terrible, per se, but something about the heavy textures and the oversized belt buckle ages her unnecessarily.

Verdict: NOT

Do our eyes deceive us, or does this gown have pockets? We count that as an automatic win for women’s fashion.

Verdict: HOT

Looks like Julie dressed to match our new address: 1 Stars Avenue. She looks radiant decked in Michael Kors and Tiffany!

Verdict: HOT

Hong Ling
Yikes, not a good look for Hong Ling’s tiny figure – this poufy gown is giving us major (‘80s) Strawberry Shortcake vibes.

Verdict: NOT

Carrie
Once again, not terrible, but the flat hair and overdone eye makeup have sapped away Carrie’s youthful appearance.

Verdict: NOT

Jayley
We like the outfit, but who thought the severe lip colour and thick eyeliner were a good idea?

Verdict: NOT

No surprises here – the Hill’s veterans are showing all the young ‘uns how it’s done. Zoe’s Michael Kors gown and Ping Hui’s J. Lindeberg suit exude effortlessness and style.

Verdict: HOT

Fierce! Is it just us or is Biren channelling her Dream Makers 2 character, Guan Xie En?

The French applique lace adds a magic touch to Jamie's otherwise boring gown. Wish she would lose the necklace though.

Kym looked adorable in her little black cocktail dress from POIS.

Vivian
While the cut leaves a little to be desired, doesn’t Vivian look gorgeous in the powder blue Francis Cheong couture gown? We can’t remember the last time we saw a pastel this flattering.

Verdict: HOT

Priscelia
Priscelia looks cute and dainty as ever in her vintage-inspired Francis Cheong dress.

Verdict: HOT

Is that a lace shirt we spy beneath Nat’s jacket? A risky, but ultimately rewarding sartorial choice, courtesy of Burberry.

Nick 
A basic, yet harmless outfit.

Verdict: Lukewarm

Ling Ling
Ling Ling looked divine in her bespoke Peter Kor gown (the just-showered hair dampens the look though). 

Verdict: HOT

Sheila 
Sheila lit up the red carpet in an autumnal patchwork gown by Etro. Love!

Verdict: HOT

Paige Chua
Paige looks angelic in her Vaughn Tan gown.

Verdict: HOT

Jean Danker
While we applaud Jean for trying something different, this pleated gown is making her look heavier than she really is. We miss the short bodycon dresses!

Verdict: Meh

Vernetta Lopez
We’re thinking this was an ill-advised YOLO moment from her stylist.

Verdict: NOT

Can you believe that Rozz fished this BCBG dress out of the discount bin just three hours before the show started?

Sonia’s lush, black Bridal Veil gown made her look like a real-life goth princess.
