The Most Stylish MPs At NDP 2022
These MPs rocked red and white in style.
It’s that time of the year where our local politicians don their red and white best to show their patriotic spirit. Among the fab looks that were spotted at the National Day Parade at The Float @ Marina Bay were pretty cheongsams, batik shirts, and custom threads from homegrown designers. Here are our favourite OOTDs.
Baey Yam Keng
Tampines GRC MP Baey Yam Keng continued his National Day tradition of wearing shirts custom-designed for the occasion. This hanbok-inspired top by LaSalle graduate Serina Lee blends traditional elements like Chinese knots and brush strokes with modernity. If you find the red motif familiar, it’s ‘cos it’s the outline of the MRT map.
Cheng Li Hui
Fellow Tampines GRC MP Cheng Li Hui looked ultra-chic in a red toga top and wrap pants.
He Ting RuSengkang GRC MP He Ting Ru’s swishy scarlet polka dotted cheongsam stood out amongst the matchy-matchy deep red and black get-ups of her fellow Workers’ Party MPs.
Gan Siow Huang
Another cute cheongsam. This Jun Couture qipao worn by Minister of State for Manpower Gan Siow Huang features a bold retro print. Love.
Ng Ling Ling
Also going traditional was Ang Mo Kio GRC Ng Ling Ling who wowed in a floral embroidered kurti.
Tin Pei Ling
MacPherson MP Tin Pei Ling’s wrap blouse from Ying the Label is all kinds of pretty, and the peplum cut feminine and flattering.
Xie Yao Quan
The red and white colours are very patriotic, but the suit? Very unexpected. Even more unexpected was the samfu-inspired tee Jurong GRC MP Xie Yao Quan wore underneath. This stylish ensemble was designed by Max Tan.
Minister in the Prime Minister's Office Maliki Osman looked dashing in a custom hand-painted orchid shirt by local designer May Sabai.
Foo Mee Har
West Coast GRC MP Foo Mee Har’s scarlet number is minimalist elegance at its best. The orchid brooch is the icing on the cake.
PM Lee Hsien Loong
Instead of orchid motifs, PM Lee, who is also the MP for Ang Mo Kio, opted for a tailor-made CYC button down shirt featuring the red ginger plant (aka rojak flower), which represents limitless prosperity and diversity.
Nadia Ahmad Samdin
Ang Mo Kio GRC MP Nadia Ahmad Samdin, who was clad in a red and white batik print top and pleated skirt, added a quirky touch to her OOTD with a bubble tea bag. Cute.
Okay, so Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Edwin Tong wore this shirt earlier in the day and not to the NDP. We heart the charming prints that remind us of Peranakan tiles.
Indranee Rajah, Grace Fu and Josephine Teo
Minister in the Prime Minister's Office Indranee Rajah and Minister for Communications and Information Josephine Teo were sported in minimalist looks, while Minister for Sustainability and the Environment Grace Fu opted for an A-line batik cheongsam from Ans.ein. Our favourite part? The tie which can be worn differently for different silhouettes and looks.
Instead of shopping for a new outfit, Parliamentary Secretary for Communications and Information Rahayu Mahzam recycled her National Day look from a few years ago. The top was designed by late batik artist Sarkasi Said.
Senior Minister of State Amy Khor kept her look simple but chic in an asymmetrical scarlet blouse and white pants when she attended National Day celebrations earlier in the day.
Love the geometric print on Nee Soon GRC MP Derrick Goh’s shirt. Kinda reminds us of the Seigaiha, or traditional Japanese wave motif.
