The 2010 TVB Anniversary lacked the attendance of its brightest stars, such as Raymond Lam, Charmaine Sheh, Sheren Tang, Jessica Hsuan, and many others. Instead, the Anniversary show became a “beauty pageant parade” as many former Miss Hong Kong winners dominated the red carpet! With a few exceptions, many fashions were prom-style and appeared to be on a budget.
BEST DRESSED: CAROL CHENG
Carol Dodo Cheng often has impeccable taste in glamorous fashions and she wore the most beautiful dress of the night! This mermaid dress created an hour-glass figure through the fitted bodice, draped fabric at the hip, and skirt that fanned out at the bottom. Despite its elegance, the dress has a youthful feel due to its hot pink color, but Carol wore it magnificently!
Nancy Wu’s pink ostrich dress was daring in its extremely fitted bodice and ultra-short skirt. The design was very modern and Nancy accessorized wisely with a thick chain-link necklace and bracelet set. However, Nancy appeared too thin in this dress and perhaps she could have chose a fit to flatter her frame more.
Natalie Tong looked vibrant and beautiful in this elegant gown. The canary yellow was just a shade too bright, otherwise the dress would have been a perfect choice.
Janet Chow’s gown draped well. Despite its simple design, it was very effective in showcasing her figure. Tracy’s Ip’s dress would have benefited from some color injection. Nude dresses are difficult to pull off without making the wearer appear washed out! Michael Tse looked “uniform handsome” in this well-fitted jacket. Glad he did not wear a tie, otherwise it would have ruined the look. Great choice!
PLEASE TRY HARDER!
Kate Tsui’s plunging neckline and “costume jewelry” exhibits her flamboyant style. While not necessarily bad looking, the size of the star reminds me of a Christmas ornament. Fala Chen’s gown lacked excitement. Personally, I find navy difficult to pull off in evening wear. Navy is like the drab cousin of black!
Strong zebra stripes are overpowering and best reserved for small accessory items such as bags or shoes. Krystal Tin and Christine Kuo looked like twins in their bold zebra dresses! Salmon must be Skye Chan’s favorite color, as she wore a very similar gown at the 2010 TVB Lighting Ceremony.
Samantha Ko’s bright purple dress, with its embellished crystal neckline is difficult to pull off without looking like a prom princess. Koni Lui’s dress is basically a leotard with draped purple panels acting as a skirt. The concept is interesting, but executed in a very busy manner; the gray lace leotard and lace leggings clash with the purple fabric. Leanne Li’s dress would also benefit from less details. The brown and black colors, sheer panel, cut out design are all too much!
Lily Ho’s dress seemed stuck in the 1980s, from the lace appliques, embellished crystals, to ruffled skirt. Jeanette Leung’s ensemble seemed more like a “costume” than evening attire, as the long gloves remind me of the Disney princesses. The gown itself is quite pretty, if only Jeanette lost those gloves!
Liza Wang’s silver dress is so shiny, it looks like aluminum wrap! While we’re on the kitchen analogy, those white draped sleeves look like “plastic bags” hanging from her arms. Standing together, the 2010 Miss Hong Kong winners’ dresses were hues of the rainbow and looked garish. The cut of Crystal Li’s dress fits her frame very well, although I am not a big fan of tie-dye patterns. The style of Lisa Chong’s dress sends shivers down my spine. Sammi Cheung’s emerald green gown looks like a big Christmas bow. Toby Chan actually looked pretty nice and appeared more elegant than the other Miss Hong winners.
WORST OUTFIT: SIRE MA
Sire Ma’s tacky white ensemble truly left me speechless! Was she trying to look cute? The tiara looks like something a little girl yearning to pretend to be a princess would wear. The white dress is shapeless and leave a lot to be desired.
Jayne: Again, disappointing celebrity turn out at the 2010 TVB Anniversary. But what did you think of the fashions? Which was your favorite dress?
