Local celebs’ best and worst looks of 2018

For every terrible outfit we spotted on a local artiste this year, there was one that was so good, that all was forgotten – that is, until we checked Instagram the following week and smacked our heads at all the misguided OOTDs.

So without further ado, here are the best and worst looks from some of our local celebs. (If you’re wondering why we didn’t include some of your favourites, it’s because they either didn’t have a “worst” to choose from – or, er, they didn’t have anything that could pass as a “best”.)

Here’s to a more fashionable 2019!

Worst: We love both of Desmond’s Prada tops… just not together. Also, doesn’t that brown sweater look like a sleeve tattoo?

Desmond Tan

Best: We know we dissed this during the Star Awards but it’s one of those looks that grows on you over time. Plus, how many guys can pull off this flashy bad boy look?

Julie Tan

Worst: This is the naked look gone wrong. The lining makes the outfit look cheap and the pants are too wide and baggy for Julie. And don’t even get us started on the Goldilocks curls.

Best: While the samfu shirt would look too “Ip Man” on just about anyone else, Ian pulls it off with oodles of swag.

Worst: This outfit is all kinds of unflattering. It looks like a gold leafed potato sack and makes Ah Jie look shapeless.

Worst: Let this look serve as a reminder to all about what happens when you spend so much time on your hair and makeup that you forget to iron your outfit.

Best: We got a bit weak in the knees when we saw Elvin looking all suave in the 2019 All Stars Calendar. If only we could wake up to him all year round.
