10 celeb style stars to watch in 2018

Celebs are no strangers to fashion trends but 2017 saw several stars up their style game in big ways. Familiar faces like Desmond Tan and Carrie Wong kept us guessing by switching up their looks, while rising stars like Zed Lee showed they are a force to be reckoned with. And we expect even bigger things from them over the next 12 months, so be sure to keep these ten celeb style stars on your radar.

Jeanette Aw

If you’ve been following Jeanette Aw on Instagram, you’d know the 38-year-old has been killing it on the style front. A regular on our best-dressed lists, 2017 saw the actress-turned-“social media influencer” hit the style stratosphere, dressing in designer labels, hitting up fashion weeks in Milan and Paris, and even setting up a lifestyle web portal this year. Keep your eyes peeled for more fashun from the star.

Carrie Wong

Whether she’s wearing a sexy Calvin Klein number or trying to rock the latest Korean trend, Carrie Wong’s style has been garnering more attention of late. While her fashion risks don’t always pay off, props to Carrie for switching up her look. We love a fashionista that keeps us guessing.

Zed Lee

Zed Zed may only be three years old, but he has already starred in a Hardy Hardy ad campaign and looks every bit the style star that his parents Fann Wong and Christopher Lee are. Blessed with his papa’s good looks and a wardrobe that most of us can only dream of (think baby Burberry, Polo Ralph Lauren and Hardy Hardy, of course), Zed looks set to be a trend-setter of his generation.

Jasmine Sim

Jasmine Sim is no stranger to the fashion circuit. The 24-year-old model-actress has been featured in numerous magazine spreads and has been strutting her stuff for homegrown womenswear label Love, Bonito since she was 20. The human clotheshorse slays in everything from feminine dresses to edgy, sleek styles and we can’t wait to see if her je ne sais quois will be translated on screen when she plays a model in upcoming Toggle Originals series VIC.

Desmond Tan

After years of experimenting (from K-pop idol wannabe to anime character, namely Zuko from Avatar: The Last Airbender), we think Desmond Tan has finally found his fashion groove. Save for the occasional outlandish leanings in the wardrobe department, he’s perfected the minimalist chic look. And though he still looks to K-fashion for inspiration, these days he is more oppa than obiang.

Cheryl Wee

Though Cheryl Wee has a taste for the finer things in life, she is just as comfortable in high street brands as she is in high-end designer labels. The actress appears to be a fan of girly styles and easy silhouettes but it is her statement-making looks that are our favourite - tell me she isn’t slaying in that LBD and “union jack inspired” outfit. Now five months pregnant with a baby boy on the way, we’re looking forward to seeing her dress the bump!

Richie Koh

Up-and-coming actor Richie Koh has a style that’s anything but. Though he’s only 24, Richie showed us he can rock a sharp suit (how dapper does he look at the Silver Screen Awards?) just as well as he can rock army fatigues and swaggy street wear. And those handsome bad boy looks don’t hurt either.

There is never a dull moment when it comes to Fiona Xie’s wardrobe. The fashionista is known for her statement looks and devil-may-care style (think silver sequined jumpsuits and sexy bra tops), and wears whatever tickles her fancy, never mind that she’s a repeat offender.

Though she has been on the scene for more than a decade, she continues to intrigue with her keen sense of fashion. Now that she’s rocking a new hot pink ‘do (finally a makeover!) and with Crazy Rich Asians set to hit the big screen this year, Fiona’s style star looks set to get brighter.

Ian Fang

Equally bold and unapologetic about his fashion choices is Ian Fang. Heavily influenced by K-pop and hip-hop, typical Ian garb comprises of streetwear, attention-grabbing logo tees and bling around his neck - all of which he rocks with confidence. For Ian, fashion is a passion and the self-taught designer even has his own streetwear label, First Attempt. Though designs are very limited and releases are erratic (he just launched a new design last month), Ian is primed to inspire through his fashion, one T-shirt at a time.

Tay Ying

Even before entering showbiz, Tay Ying has been on our fashion radar. An influencer in her own right, the daughter of actors Zheng Ge Ping and Hong Hui Fang has a knack for pulling together effortless looks. Now that she’s got a fatter bank account - she recently landed a five-figure endorsement with Shiseido Professional - and stylists by her side (including celebrity stylist Addy Lee), we’re excited to see how she takes her style game to the next level.
