Best: Zoe’s fetchingly bright Schiaparelli Haute Couture jumpsuit from Star Awards. Fun fact: Not only was it specially flown in from Paris, and had only been worn once, but it was retired after Zoe’s finished wearing it.

Worst: Xubin’s first outfit, post-wedding, looks like what would happen if you wanted to dress like a K-Pop star, but only had access to the sales racks at Forever 21.

We love a man who’s secure enough to recycle outfits. This porcelain vase-like Amos Marcus suit looks as good on Xubin as it did two years ago

Worst: We get it, everyone chills a little bit when they’re at home (Jeffrey was in China when he wore this), but this outfit is so not OOTD-worthy.

Jayley Woo

Worst: As much as we love how Jayley looks in pastels, we can’t help thinking it resembles a “look for less” version of the Elie Saab gown Mila Kunis wore to the Oscars in 2011.

Ian Fang

Worst: Everything about this look, from the spiky hair to the mismatched items of clothing, gives us the impression that Ian had just rolled out of bed.

Ian Fang

Best: Ian’s personal style can be a little eccentric, so we were happy to see him lookin’ trim, yet fashion-forward, while promoting Goodbye Mr. Loser.

Fiona Xie

Best: The only thing we loved more than seeing Fiona go platinum (a different hairstyle! finally!) was seeing her rock this blindingly chromatic getup at the YSL Beauty Club party. It’s flashy, it’s daring, it’s totally her.

Worst: The lack of congruency in this outfit, worn at the Tod’s opening in Marina Bay Sands, makes it a bit of an eyesore.

Fann Wong

Best: Fann looked confident as ever in head-to-toe black. The puffy top is just quirky enough to give this monochrome ensemble a bit of personality.

Worst: While we don’t fault anyone for wanting to try something different, Elvin looks a little stiff in his Amos Ananda ensemble and curly hair.

Worst: While we’d typically have no objection to this pioneer-style gown, it looked a little too stuffy for the Star Awards red carpet.

Carrie Wong

Best: Her SGIFF outfit. The combination of blinged-out blazer, slicked-back hair, and statement jewellery (a collaboration between momo’s march and Arissa X) makes for an outfit that is both powerful and chic.

Worst: Hygge-style cosiness might have trended in 2017, but brown paper packages tied up with string belong in The Sound of Music and nowhere else.
