Hot or Not: Star Awards 2019 Fashion

It’s that time of the year again when local stars shine bright at the annual Star Awards ceremony. This year marks the glitzy event’s 25th anniversary so it’s no surprise that many past and present stars have descended at Stars Avenue, looking stunning and camera-ready.

Scroll through our gallery to see the evening’s best outfits as well as the ones that made us go, “What was he/she thinking?”

How to rock an all-black outfit? Just turn to Rebecca, who showed up on the red carpet in this Valentino gown that featured an overflow of dramatic-looking ruffles.

Verdict: HOT

Doesn't Ah Jie look resplendent in this dramatic red gown by Carolina Herrera?

Verdict: HOT

Desmond Tan

Desmond Tan

While many male celebrities chose safer options, the stylish Desmond donned a Dior suit sans shirt, proving to us that plunging necklines aren’t just reserved for the female stars.

Verdict: HOT

If there’s anybody who can make a harness look cool (in case you're wondering, it's from Louis Vuitton) and covetable as a fashion accessory, it’s got to be Desmond.

Felicia Chin

Felicia may have regretted wearing a "naked" dress at Star Awards 2016, but that hasn't stopped her from donning one again. This year, she stepped out in a custom-made number by JessicaCindy that featured a whole lot of feathers. Let’s hope whoever sat next to her didn’t erupt into a sneeze fest.

Verdict: NOT

Jeffrey Xu

When his SO’s outfit is so striking, it’s only right for Jeffrey to go understated. No wonder he’s picked an all-black ensemble.

Verdict: HOT​​​​​​​

Bonnie Loo

Bonnie Loo

Sparkles, a plunging neckline and sheer details - it’s clear that Bonnie’s floor-grazing gown checks all the boxes of what it takes to be a red carpet-worthy dress.

Verdict: HOT

Perhaps it's our fear of bugs but Shu Cheng da ge's suit is making our skin crawl. 

Verdict: NOT

Hong Ling

Hong Ling

Is it just us or was Hong Ling trying her best to exude farmer chic? If she really was, then she definitely aced it with her hay-like gown.

Verdict: NOT

Carrie Wong

Carrie Wong

Carrie wore a strapless Ralph Lauren pink gown that not only required confidence, but also a supermodel figure to rock it.

Verdict: HOT

Fann Wong

Fann Wong

We’d been missing Ah Jie Fann at the Star Awards for a few years now, so seeing her back at the yearly grand affair felt especially nostalgic. And her nude sheer dress didn’t disappoint. 

Verdict: HOT

Christopher Lee

Printers blazers were a thing at this year’s Star Awards, and Chris’ Ralph Lauren art deco piece was the last word in sophisticated cool.

Verdict: HOT

Fann Wong

Fann Wong

When it comes to red carpet glam, we can always count on Fann who had not one but a whopping three outfit changes throughout the awards ceremony! This golden, military-inspired number definitely stood out the most.

Verdict: HOT

Lina Ng

Lina Ng

This look is Game of Thrones meets the Greatest Showman. Although we love each of these trends on their own, the combo just doesn’t work. 

Verdict: NOT

Chen Xiuhuan

Not a fan of the bubblegum pink, but you can't deny that Xiuhuan looks super chic in the "shirt gown" from Carolina Herrera.

Verdict: HOT

Timothee Yap, Xu Bin, Zong Zijie, Gavin Chong,

The boys from NoonTalk Media (who were literally cut from the same cloth) turned up the heat at this year’s ceremony with their man cleavage, but their uniform-like and overly coordinated outfits look a tad too cheesy for our liking.

Verdict: NOT

Sheila Sim

15 Apr 2019

Sheila Sim

Sheila’s neckline may have dived all the way to her midriff to capture everybody’s attention but her wide leg pants were frankly so shapeless that they did nothing to accentuate her supermodel figure. What a pity!

Verdict: NOT

He Ying Ying

15 Apr 2019

He Ying Ying

Ying Ying’s sparkly and standout number shone a spotlight on her amazing figure. We’re pretty sure the bustier top sent her male fans’ hearts racing.

Verdict: HOT

Ian Fang

Ian's black Mao suit is anything but boring when paired with this vintage-looking Chanel brooch and sneaks. 

Verdict: HOT

Felicia Chin

Felicia Chin

We would usually associate a dress like this with Kym Ng, but since the All-Time Favourite Artiste decided to dress more goddess-like for her big night, the role of cutesy, sparkly fairy went to Felicia.

Verdict: HOT

Florence Tan
Florence Tan
15 Apr 2019

Florence Tan

Florence’s return to the Star Awards ceremony was worth celebrating but her choice of gown? Not so much. While her gown had pockets (good for stashing away mints), it didn’t sit well on her natural curves, making the silhouette somewhat shapeless.

Verdict: NOT

Xiang Yun

15 Apr 2019

Xiang Yun

The Evergreen Artiste Award winner wore a black dress with floral details by Etro, looking more like a rich Indonesian tai tai rather than a glamorous A-lister.

Verdict: NOT

Kym Ng (with Tony Sun)

We saw a lot of female stars opting for gala-worthy gowns but this was not the case for this year’s All-Time Favourite Artiste Kym, who stood out in her light blue pantsuit by Q Menswear.

Verdict: HOT

Kym Ng

Mid-show, Kym switched into a strapless shimmery number to accept her All-Time Favourite Award on stage, looking every inch like a superstar.

Verdict: HOT

Zoe Tay

Zoe slipped into her second outfit of the night before picking up her Best Actress trophy: a body-hugging number from Tom Ford that flaunted her curves in all the right places.

Verdict: HOT

Jasmine Sim

Best Newcomer winner and rising star Jasmine picked a striking red pantsuit for this year’s award ceremony, and nailed it.

Verdict: HOT

Paige Chua

Paige Chua

Did Paige get the wrong memo? While her goddess-like white gown with a sheer décolletage looked graceful, we felt it was a tad too bridal-like for our liking.

Verdict: NOT

Chen Han Wei

Chen Han Wei

For formal occasions like the Star Awards, most men would prefer to wear suits. However, Han Wei surprised us by swapping the usual tie with a scarf, making his outfit more memorable. Kudos for thinking out of the box!

Verdict: HOT

Jesseca Liu

Jesseca Liu

Jesseca kept her red carpet look classic and classy in this floor-sweeping black gown with an equally long cape, and side swept hair. One word: Chic!  

Verdict: HOT

Cynthia Koh

Cynthia Koh

Legs were noticeably lacking on the red carpet this year but we were glad to see many stars showing up in equally traffic-stopping gowns. Cynthia, dressed in this navy number with a plunging neckline, was one such example.

Verdict: HOT

Edwin Goh

Edwin Goh

Edwin embraced one-tone dressing in this tan suit (even his underwear was the same colour!), and opted for a T-shirt and sneakers for a more laidback look.

Verdict: HOT

Pan Ling Ling

15 Apr 2019

Pan Ling Ling

We know the polka dot trend may be having its moment in the fashion scene for a while now but we’re not convinced by Ling Ling’s monochrome dress. It lacks a level of glamour that we’re expecting from a red carpet number.  

Verdict: NOT

Denise Camillia Tan

Denise Camillia Tan

Blame it on the overcomplicated embellishments, or the overly proper pose here, but Denise looked at least 10 years older than she really is in this sleeveless mermaid gown.

Verdict: NOT

Joanne Peh and Qi Yuwu

Red carpet goddess Joanne flaunted her hourglass figure in a half body-baring gown featuring embellishments that provided a peekaboo effect, while hubby Yu Wu kept his outfit classic and looked irresistibly hot in his white tuxedo. He’s a good example of how all men should dress up for a gala event. 

Verdict: HOT


Ya Hui

Ya Hui

Ya Hui looked stunning in this deep plunging and back-bearing number, making her look like she was part of The Great Gatsby cast.

Verdict: HOT

Bryan Wong

Bryan Wong

Bryan’s eye-catching blazer was well-chosen as it allowed him to stand out easily from the sea of male stars who were mostly dressed in black.

Verdict: HOT

Quan Yifong

Quan Yifong

Best Programme Host Award winner Quan Yifong was a vision in this intricately embellished one-shoulder gown that was cinched in at the waist to accentuate her natural curves.

Verdict: HOT

Irene Ang

Irene Ang

The clashing mix of stripes and rose prints on Irene’s blazer looked as mismatched as her makeup and hairdo.

Verdict: NOT

Elvin Ng

Elvin Ng

Did Elvin’s stylist run out of time to iron the lapels on Elvin’s jacket? It certainly didn’t blend well with his grey shirt and tie combo.

Verdict: NOT

Lin Mei Jiao

Lin Mei Jiao

Mei Jiao’s all-white pantsuit may lack any elaborate embellishments but we love how timeless and elegant it looks now as well as in the years to come.

Verdict: HOT

Aileen Tan

As elegant as Aileen looked in her gown, we can’t help feeling as if we’ve seen it before. Oh yes, Paige Chua wore it last year.

Verdict: LUKEWARM

Dennis Chew

Dennis Chew

While the cut fit Dennis’s frame perfectly, we have to admit that we’re not exactly huge fans of the crown motifs all over his suit or his side-swept tresses. You can do better, Dennis!

Verdict: NOT
