Stars' peekaboo dresses raise eyebrows
The stars down south sizzled on the red carpet at the Star Awards Show 2 held Sunday evening at the Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.
Gone were the irreverent outfits and colourful hairstyles which marked previous awards ceremonies; glamour is back in style.
Constance Song, in particular, stood out in her bold peekaboo Jiki dress held together by a sheer panel running down the front and back.
Her modesty was protected only by a crystal-embellished mesh fabric which ran from the belly-button downwards.
But Song was hardly worried about the dangers of her risque choice as she told The New Paper, "I wasn't worried that I would reveal too much because when I move, the dress doesn't move at all."
Joanne Peh, who won Best Actress for her role in A Tale of 2 Cities that night, also titillated, revealing her gams in an electric-purple Bottega Venata number with a plunging neckline.
She later changed into a shiny silver dress, which was criticised for being too revealing.
Other stars like Michelle Chia opted for a black lacy number by Shanghai-based Frenchman Yannick Machedo.
She revealed that there's no inner lining for the dress, only extra lace that covered the strategic spots.
