This is it, everyone: The last hurrah for Star Awards 2016. Technically, it should be about the best performances on local TV, but let’s just put great acting aside for a moment. Here at herworldPLUS, we’ve always been more interested in the stars’ red-carpet choices. 

Show One saw more abysmal failures than fashion triumphs, so we were pleasantly surprised last night. It seemed as if most of the stars were saving their best for the last and totally upped their game! Show Two drew to a beautiful close with our best-dressed honourees slaying the red carpet with great designs from McQueen, Mugler and more. 

While most of the stars managed to steal the sartorial show last night, there were still a couple of questionable choices on the red carpet that left us scratching our heads. We bring to you 10 stars that are worth a mention, for better or for worst. Behold!

1. Jeanette Aw 

After being nominated for Best Actress seven times, she finally clinched the coveted title last night in a stunning white Alexander McQueen gown, no less! Absolutely love the juxtaposition between the edgy chain detailing and the soft white silk that delicately wrapped around and highlighted her svelte figure.

2. Rui En

It has been a tough year for the ice queen, but she will always be the sartorial queen of my heart. No awards last night, but she totally slayed the red carpet with this bold and sexy number from Mugler. She was also wearing jewellery from Cartier worth more than half a million dollars. 

3. Rebecca Lim

She took a trip to the dark side last week with a head-to-toe black lace ensemble that I was on the fence about. I think I still prefer her in more conventionally feminine styles. She looked gorgeous in this floral Gucci pleated dress last night.

4. Myolie Wu 

Hong Kong A-list actress Myolie Wu was invited to present an award at the ceremony last night and boy, did she look ravishing in this delicate beaded number. She’s wearing a dress from the latest 2016 collection from Hong Kong couturier Kevolie Official by Kev Yiu.

5. Tong Bing Yu

She was a bit of a disaster last week in a pouffy mint ribbon dress, but I think she scored plenty of brownie points with this black billowing gown. It might be a little on the safe side but the embellishments on the shoulder straps definitely helped to add textural and visual interest to her dress. Her Damiani cuff also added a nice sartorial touch to the look.

6. Zoe Tay 

The queen is still queen. How does she keep her figure so slim after so many years and so many kids? I was never a fan of the colour orange, but I have to say that it looks great on her bronzed skin. The Van Cleef and Arpels necklace sitting on her bosom cost more than a million dollars; very befitting of her star status.

7. Sora Ma

While all the big designer names are usually the ones that make it to the red carpet, the eagle-eyed Sora decided to go with a budding young eponymous label — Wang Meng. This form fitting dress rocks a daring thigh-high slit and one shoulder neckline. I especially love the fish bone structured waistband and the gold buckles that adorn her side.

8. Carrie Wong

She definitely looked better compared to her “club girl” outfit last week, but she looked a bit too plain (read:boring) and washed out last night. I think the look would have worked better with some stronger accessories.

9. Priscelia Chan 

I love the colour palette and the on-trend wide leg pants, but I felt that the whole look was a bit too casual for the biggest awards ceremony in Singapore. Also, the drapes of the vest falls very awkwardly in between her thighs and girl, it doesn’t look good.

10. Sheila Sim

She’s wearing Chanel (yes, I know it’s our favourite French luxury label) so maybe we’re just not “fashion” enough for this one, because we’re really not feeling it. The mesh detailing is visually distracting and those chunky peep toe platforms do nothing to highlight her covetable long legs. She looks like she’s just flown in from some futuristic alien colony in outer space.
