I can’t write a review on the award recipients in good faith this year as I haven’t seen half of the series nominees, so instead I will write an opinion (bashing?) piece on the fashion hit and misses (more the latter than the former, as usual).
Let’s start with the better ones, since that’s a shorter list.
Reminds me a lot of Isabella Leong’s get-up at a past awards show, in a good way. Although I don’t like the cake-icing detail on the top, I’m glad that she’s finally not wearing a deep V-neck. The cut of the dress highlights her slender figure and despite the color, she doesn’t look washed out thanks to her bold red lipstick. Very old Hollywood glam, although I’m not crazy about the hair – she should have done something similar to Linda’s hair or gone with a side-swept updo. Ruco looks awards-appropriate as well.
Best Dressed Male of the night with a traditional black-on-black suit but with a bit of detail in that fur thing on the side of his jacket. Also appreciate that the hair doesn’t look too crazy.
Sweet, feminine and a good color for her, the dress was age-appropriate, highlighted her thin frame and her hairstyle was great too. Best dressed female of the night among slim pickings.
At first glance, he reminded me of the circus tiger man but I quickly got used to it. He looks festive and dapper and obviously his height helps significantly.
Warning: looking at this for more than 30 seconds will potentially cause seizures.
Look at the photo – need I say more? I’m embarrassed on his behalf. Myolie, I can’t believe you let him out of the house looking like that. Kate doesn’t look too bad although in this photo you can’t see her shoes, which were all wrong.
While the cut of the dress accents her super-long legs, the material, the black-lace corset-style bosom area, as well as the tacky crystal-on-black-suede shoes – which you can’t see in this photo, but that might be a good thing – make her look like someone who has a night job (if you know what I mean).
Call me old school but red suits?! Urghhhhhhhh. I feel bad that he had to accept the top award in this outfit! At least everyone knows these awards are just a show.
Tavia Yeung has never been a good dresser at these things and this year was no exception. Pick one, Tavs – either do the sparkly dress or the bling. Doing both makes you look tacky. And seriously, the nose is getting very distracting these days. Poor Tavia. I had to laugh when Wayne Lai appeared… the things you wear once you win TVB Best Actor. The crazy hair! The white-top-black-bottom outfit with the tuxedo vest inside! Oh boy. But then again – if you’re Wayne Lai, who cares what you wear?
Kenneth Ma was actually one of the better dressed males (compared to Ron Ng who looked like he was headed for a consultant interview). The Grasshopper members look like they’re on their way to perform at a concert (in a good way).
Linda Chung’s dress was Vegas meets Tinkerbell, but in the sea of drab or plain Fashion tonight, she was one of the better ones. I also love her hair, although I think it makes her look older than her age. The cut of Kate Tsui’s dress is bold and stylish and the hair matches it, but the shoes are all wrong.
Cilla Kung looked like she was about to go trick-or-treating as a fairy, and Michael Tse, Raymond Wong and Wong Cho Lam looked like they were going for a round of golf with some old men.
I’m not a fan of feathers so I didn’t like Myolie’s dress, although her hair and accessories were quite nice. Dodo Cheng was mediocre.
And that’s it for the fashion review! With that, I will end with one of my favourite photos of the night, which shows that despite everything wrong with TVB nowadays, there’s still some genuine camaraderie among the artists.
