The TVB Anniversary Awards is one of the most anticipated events of the year among Hong Kong entertainment fans. Although spectacular diamonds were on display, the ladies’ gowns failed to dazzle on the same level.
BEST DRESSED: RAYMOND LAM
Raymond Lam, in a stylish Burberry trench coat and eye-catching fringe pin, was the best dressed artist, beating out the sexily clad ladies! The “Hottest Man Alive at TVB” displayed his flirtatious side after winning the My Favorite Male Character and TVB.com Popularity Awards.
Linda Chung’s figure looks great in long flowing gowns. Fuchsia is a hot color choice in evening wear right now. Designed by Barney Chan, Linda’s dress looks great from the waist up, although the shiny satin bands and ruffles in the skirt take away the elegance. Linda’s $10.2 million (HKD) diamond jewelry set, “Dazzling Love” was sponsored by Emperor Watch & Jewellry. Her necklace had a combined 61.37 carats in diamonds and her bracelet had 6.4 carats in total diamonds. Loved the simple elegance of her side-swept hair!
Tavia Yeung’s $15 million (HKD) diamond jewelry set was aptly named “Gorgeous Moment,” which was sponsored by Emperor Watch & Jewellry. Her gown was purchased by a friend while traveling overseas. I love Tavia’s necklace; the scattering of the diamond design is truly magical! However, the rhinestone on her dress was a little overkill. Ron Ng’s muscular torso filled out his jacket well as usual!
Fala Chen is one of the most beautiful actresses at TVB and she wears this Giorgio Armani beige dress very elegantly. She color-coordinated very nicely with Raymond Wong, who should have left his bow-tie home! Loved Kate Tsui’s side-swept curls, although her make-up looked a little pale. Prefer Kenneth Ma with hair!
ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT
Valentino evening gowns are often worn by actresses at red carpet events due to their classic elegance. Charmaine Sheh’s Valentino dress, valued at $220,000 (HKD) was likely the most expensive dress at the 2010 TVB Anniversary Awards! However, the dress makes Charmaine look too mature and the long-sleeves are much too conservative! I like the back of the dress though. Charmaine wore 6 carats in diamonds valued at $10 million (HKD).
Best Actress, Sheren Tang, wore a Johanna Ho black mermaid dress, which emphasized her curves. The dress by itself is fine, but Sheren’s friend and stylist for the awards ceremony, Wyman Wong, suggested black gloves and pin curls, which play up the 1940s “Glamor Girl” image. Sheren wore $9 million (HKD) worth of Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry. Perhaps the black gloves can stay if they really wanted, but the hair should have been swept up. The hair and make-up, especially the bright red lipstick, made Sheren look very old. I preferred her minimalist look from the 2009 TVB Anniversary Awards much more!
Wayne Lai would have looked better if his jacket were one size bigger. It looked uncomfortably tight and emphasized his narrow shoulders. While Moses Chan can often pull off stylish outfits, I dislike his “Robin Hood, Men in Tights” ensemble.
Natalie Tong is a beautiful woman, but her “bridemaid dress” was totally uninspiring. Although her Emilio Pucci 2010 dress was pretty, Nancy Wu could have benefitted from better make-up and jewelry choice.
GIRLS GONE WILD
Soon-to-be-bride, Toby Leung, appears to be enjoying the limelight in a sexy gray dress displaying her long cleavage line. The dress was designed by Walter Ma.
Mimi Lo’s dress already had a lot of eye-catching details; she should have lost the crazy hair clip and high heels. Derek Kwok wore a boldly-pattern jacket, while Queenie Chu looked vibrant in yellow. Together, the trio looked like they were really for “fiesta time!”
GET DRESSED AGAIN!
Louise Lee tends to pick dresses that emphasize her age. The frosted pink color is actually very pretty, but the dress could do without the collar and shortening the hem to the knee. The dress looks like a giant big cloak. Susanna Kwan looked elegant as always.
Vincent Wong looked terrible in a brown plaid ensemble. If he didn’t want to wear black, dark gray would have been a better alternative. But no strong patterns please!
WORST DRESSED: PIERRE NGO & MICHAEL TSE
Who wore the worst outfit, Pierre Ngo or Michael Tse? Unless you’re Scottish, men should not wear bold plaid jackets! Plaid looks best in small dosages! Pierre Ngo’s permed hair added to the poorly assembled outfit. A big thumbs down! Michael Tse was under-dressed for the occasion and he should have lost the nerdy glasses!
