When it comes to the local entertainment scene, we dare say there’s a star that shines brighter than the rest. The one that has bedazzled countless television viewers in Singapore as well as the rest of Asia (and even Hollywood!).
We’re talking about Fann Wong. She’s one of the few local celebs who has made it big outside of our sunny shores. After winning the Her World magazine Cover Girl competition in 1988, the model went on to pursue an acting career.
In 1995, she bagged not one but three trophies at the Star Awards ceremony. It was a great feat for a newbie and a clear indicator of what a megastar she would turn into. Over the years, we’ve seen her rising popularity as she appeared on our TV screens through dramas like The Return of the Condor Heroes, The Legendary Swordsman and Madam White Snake, to name a few.
Aside from her illustrious tv career, Fann is also a singer and movie star. She’d released six music albums and acted alongside Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson in Shanghai Knights, and Jang Hyuk and Jason Scott Lee in Dance of the Dragon.
Fashion-wise, Fann rarely disappoints us. Take a quick look at all her red carpet getups and you’ll know why. From goddess-like gowns to lime green mini shorts, the ageless Ah Jie wears all her outfits with aplomb. What do we love most about her style? Well, it’s her love for experimenting with fashion, trying out classic and glamorous looks, and everything in between.
With her birthday falling on January 27, we thought it’s timely to look at some of her best outfits, and the style lessons she has given us.
