The Star Awards honoured the best in Singapore’s Chinese television industry Sunday, as the stars arrived at the Marina Bay Sands resplendent in their Sunday best. From flowy gowns to confusing bustiers, here is our take on who scored big on the red carpet and who should have packed their bags and fled the scene of crime.
