This week’s best-dressed stars: Christopher Lee, Sonia Chew, Rui En and more
The most stylish celeb OOTDs of the week.
While stars like Sonia Chew and socialite Arissa Cheo sported all-black badass leather looks at the launch of the YSL Beauty Libre pop-up at ION Orchard earlier this week, others like Christopher Lee and Rui En went all out with colour and prints with their outfits. They all had one thing in common, though: they looked fantastic.
It takes a man with oodles of confidence — not to mention swag — to rock khaki shorts with cartoon flower patches and a jacket with what resembles a Minecraft map on it (it’s Moncler, by the way).
Chris is 100% that guy, and he takes it up a notch by pairing his quirky ensemble with bright green sneakers and part-red socks. As Sheila Sim gushed in a comment, only he could carry off such a look.
Lawrence WongAnother dude who can pull off such vivid, flamboyant get-ups is Lawrence, seen here in an ultra-colourful fit from Dior’s summer collection. While the rest of us might look like we’d just come out of a particularly messy painting session, the star is the work of art.
Continuing the loud looks trend is Rui En in a patterned Kate Spade suit that’s a mix of Serious Business and charmingly whimsical — a far cry from the edgy all-black looks she used to sport during her ‘Ice Queen’ days (remember that?).
Thai superstar Bright Vachirawit may have been the main attraction at a recent YSL Beauty event but we’re just as enamoured by Sonia’s outfit, which had leather, lace, and what appears to be pant legs attached to her skirt that we’re still trying to figure out but are obsessed with anyway.
It was a glamorous siblings’ night out for the children of football star Fandi Ahmad at the same YSL Beauty shindig, and while everyone looks awesome, we have to say that Iman stands out as the proverbial rose among the thorns thanks to her LBD with a plunging neckline and hip-high side slit. Plus that leather jacket, of course.
Black leather jackets were clearly in abundance at the YSL Beauty pop-up, and heiress Arissa, who is no stranger to unapologetically badass aesthetics, looks right at home in hers. Bonus points for that ear stack.
We see more black leather — and YSL — from Sheryl, who serves up some androgynous awesomeness in a biker vest and bag that’s sure to turn heads for its size and swank.
If Snow White were a modern-day influencer with killer fashion sense, we reckon she would look like Fiona here, prancing through the forest in frilly, lacy florals and a flouncy, princessy-looking trench coat. No need to wait for her prince to come when she’s already such a queen.
Ah Jie proves that you don’t need to wear a bikini to look sizzling hot on your yacht vacay: even a relatively modest one-piece and overshirt — which happens to match the colour of the sky exactly, we wanna add — can do the trick. Then again, it probably helps to have legs like hers.
Glenn said he was "feeling like a rockstar" and he sure looked like one in this Gucci crystal-adorned tux. What better way to dazzle than in a fireworks suit?
Looking pretty in pink and all ready for a relaxing summer getaway is Bingyu, who spices things up with ample cleavage and a peak at her midsection at an event in Malaysia. We don’t think anyone was really looking at the Longchamp bags that day.
Denise Camillia Tan
The thought of donning a bright-yellow form-fitting knit dress with cutouts may be daunting for some. Not for Denise though, who is a picture of sunshiny confidence at a similar Longchamp glamping party here in Singapore.
Even without the jacket, 715 is looking absolutely dapper in his tux, which he accessorised with a Celine tote. Gentleman, don’t ever let anyone tell you that manbags aren’t cool.
Giving what is possibly the most stylish side-eye we’ve ever seen is Yingying in chic shades and a fabulous red lip. It’s almost like she’s saying, “What do you mean I can’t mix small and large floral prints? It’s called ‘fashion’, darling, look it up.” (For the record, we think she slays in the supposedly controversial combo.)
The Star Search finalist looks both casual and glamorous in this denim dress with cutouts, a thigh-high slit, and huge mismatched buttons that add a touch of whimsy. Definitely #OOTD worthy.
Also rocking denim while giving off more laidback cool girl vibes is Tay Ying, whose Prada bralette, baggy jeans, and chunky sneakers make her look like she just stepped out of the set of a hip-hop music video from the 90s.
Spring has sprung in Paris, which we think is nicely represented by that marvellous shade of green on Sharon’s dress at an event for French department store chain Printemps. Très chic!
If we didn’t know any better, we’d totally think this shot of Eleanor was a #throwback from a classic '80s Taiwanese album. We think it’s the shoulder pads and big loose waves, both of which suit her tremendously despite the fact that she wasn’t even close to being born in that decade.
Jamie may be based in England now but she’s clearly still a huge supporter of Singaporean brands such as Faire Belle, wearing a dress from their new batik collection for Mother’s Day in the UK. We wonder if she had something to do with the frock now being sold on the online website.
Tay KexinWell, orange you looking fab, Kexin! The singer of local a cappella group MICappella is getting married in less than two weeks’ time and recently had her Guo Da Li, or betrothal ceremony, which she attended in a super cute off-shoulder dress with puff sleeves and a balloon skirt.
Bonnie has been showing us a parade of lovely looks throughout her holiday in Taiwan, but this particular ensemble caught our eye for how she paired a Chanel-esque — and tai tai-worthy — pink dress with decidedly more girlish knee-high socks and chunky sneakers, creating a rather unexpected combo that actually works on her.
Fauzie LailyLike Bonnie, Fauzie’s been serving some A-plus #OOTDs from his Japan getaway while casually showing off just how many jackets and sweaters he owns. This particular fit featuring a long brown overcoat and black turtleneck screams major oppa vibes (yes, we know, wrong country, but still).
While most of us would probably just throw on any old tee and shorts to eat steamboat, Xiuhuan being Xiuhuan was her usual fashionista self when she went to support Chew Chor Meng’s latest F&B biz ViewDee Thai Bistro Bar and opted for a flowery sundress with Chanel sandals (because why not?).
But for what it’s worth, Phyllis Quek and Apple Hong look great too in their more casual looks.
