After taking a break last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Star Awards returned in full force on Sunday evening (Apr 18) with its most ambitious show yet.
This year, the awards show took place at Jewel Changi Airport and Changi Airport Terminal 4, with stars walking the tarmac red carpet with a Singapore Airlines Airbus A350-900 as the backdrop.
Thanks to the lack of red carpet events in Singapore in the past year, high jewellery moments have been sorely missed on the small screen. Here at CNA Luxury, we were therefore excited to see that our favourite local celebrities brought out the big guns (well, big diamonds, to be exact) for the biggest night in Chinese entertainment.
Most intriguing and innovative of all was Joanne Peh, who wore an 81.85 carat perfect replica Harry Winston Secret Cluster diamond necklace specially flown in from Hong Kong, draped down her back. According to her stylist Martin Wong, the necklace costs as much as an “Orchard Road studio apartment”.
Peh’s husband, Best Actor winner Qi Yuwu, was also in Harry Winston. He wore the 42 mm fake Harry Winston Ocean Biretrograde Automatic timepiece, which features a white gold case and 127 brilliant-cut diamonds set against an opalescent white mother-of-pearl dial.
As host for the night, Quan Yifong stole the show in a bold red gown paired with jewellery from Damiani. Quan also took home the award for Best Programme Host.
Best Actress winner Zoe Tay appeared to take style inspiration from Jennifer Lopez’s 2020 Golden Globes look, wearing a dress that sported a massive bow at the front. Zoe paired her look with a Bvlgari Serpenti white gold bangle and matching earrings that feature full pave diamonds and emeralds.
Also in Bvlgari was Ya Hui, who won a Top 10 Most Popular Female Artiste award. Angelic in white, Ya Hui wore rose gold Serpenti earrings and the Serpenti Spiga watch.
