NERD ALERT: Hong Ling, Jeffrey Xu, Elvin Ng, Vanessa Vanderstraaten

Something must have been in the air these week, because the stars let their geek flags fly. For the Ghibli fans, we’ve got Hong Ling in a Totoro sweater. For the Potterheads, we’ve got Vanessa Vanderstraaten, Slytherin, commemorating Harry’s Hogwarts nemesis. Plus, all the sharp-eyed, old-school anime fans will have spotted Takeshia “Gian” Gouda on Jeffrey’s Chocoolate x Doraemon T-shirt. 

Bonus: Elvin (inadvertently) channeling a Minion.

MAKEOVERS: Carrie Wong, Hayley Woo, Lilin Wong

It’s not every week where you see one star, let alone three, get a major makeover, so imagine our surprise when we saw Carrie, Hayley, and Lilin with brand new hairstyles. Carrie, who has missed her long hair, posted a "not throwback" photo of herself with a long 'do (er, extensions?); Hayley jumped aboard the rainbow hair bandwagon with a bright purple mane; and Lilin stepped out of Salon Vim with a chic bob. Looking good, ladies!

You know you have good fashion sense when you can still look decently stylish while standing next to Jimmy Choo.

In between the polka dots and the gingerbread man phone case, this is one adorable OOTD.

“Samsung S7 is definitely the sexiest phone in the market now! The curves are beautiful and make it so comfortable to hold on to.” Funny you wrote that on Instagram, Desmond, because we could totally say that about you in THIS SUIT.

Diana wore a fittingly celebratory shade of red at the official opening of Times Waterway Point, where she was unveiled as a Brand Advocate.

We love seeing our artistes in winterwear – a rather rare sight, considering the weather this week – and Elvin’s striped scarf and blue snow jacket make a cheerful combination.

Like it or not, flared jeans are back! Felicia Chin’s whimsical outfit, from H&M’s “Love Coachella” collection, makes us want to drop everything and head to the nearest indie music festival.

Speaking of trends that are back, check out Ian’s cargo pants. Pairing them with Timberlands, a scarf, and a suit jacket does give the overall look some much-needed swagger, though.

We can’t think of a more perfect outfit to wear to the ballet performance of Don Quixote. With her topknot, skater dress, and dainty heels, Jeanette was totally on pointe (pardon the pun) on the steps of the Esplanade theatre.

We’re letting out a big fat YES to this entire look, from the high-necked, electric blue dress, to the fierce floral heels. Julie’s outfit is from Alexander Wang, Fendi, and The Outnet.

Kimberley Wang’s high-waisted shorts and crop top bring us straight back to the early ‘90s.

At the Hyundai Elantra launch, Paige perfected the sweet, simple aesthetic with her light purple dress and statement necklace.

Now THIS is how you mix prints without looking like you selected clothes at random. Priscelia wisely stuck with a consistent colour theme and pattern size to create a cute, coherent outfit.

You can’t really go wrong with navy blue on black, especially when you have a gorgeous satchel in tow.

That being said, it’s hard to go wrong with blue on blue either, even when you’re posing next to a car that could outshine you.

As she wrote on Instagram, Rozz channeled her inner hippie with this one-shoulder ensemble from Alice & Olivia at an ION event last week.

Sheila sure has a knack for unlikely pairings. While we would never think to wear sparkly mauve ankle boots with a pale turquoise dress, she looked fashion-forward as ever.

How carefree does Tracy look in Sydney? Her long denim outwear is a refreshing take on the classic leather jacket.

It’s a twofer for Yasminne this week, who wore a show-stopping red ensemble while meeting Wolfgang Puck, and who looked stunning in a high-necked Vivienne Westwood dress at the Times bookstore opening in Waterway Point.
