Red carpet fashion has always been one of the more exciting things to look forward to in awards season, and this year’s TVB Anniversary Awards was no exception. Elegant neutral colors dominated the bright red carpet, with the occasional splash of red and blue to lighten the scene. Though many actresses went for safer looks this year, diamonds sparkled more than usual, and each nominee wore up to $20 million HKD worth of jewelry.
Tavia Yeung: Most Expensive Look
Though Best Actress nominee Tavia Yeung (楊怡), right, chose to go for a safer black color for her tight-fitting dress, she reportedly wore up to $20 million HKD worth of jewelry, including earrings, necklace, bracelet, and two rings, totaling 86-karat. It was the night’s most expensive look.
Other actresses who also appeared in black were Best Supporting Actress winner Elaine Yiu (姚子羚), left, and Most Popular Female Character nominee Priscilla Wong (黃翠如), middle. Elaine’s dress was a solid black, but she definitely stunned with her dress’s plunging back. Pricilla’s ballroom gown was fit for a princess.
Linda Chung: Sexiest Outfit
Known for her innocent and angelic image, Best Actress nominee Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣), left, surprised everyone on board when she appeared with a rather risqué black outfit. The dress was sheer throughout, revealing her black bikini top and bottom.
Best Actress winner Nancy Wu (胡定欣), middle, looked sophisticated and elegant with her sheer voluminous gown that changed colors in the light. Best Supporting Actress nominee Natalie Tong (唐詩詠), right, steamed up the red carpet with a sheer white gown that revealed the bodysuit worn underneath. The dress further shined with an extremely daring low back.
Embellished with Gold
Best Actress nominee Liza Wang (汪明荃), left, had on a bejeweled skin-colored maxi dress with jewelry up to $8.88 million HKD, a lucky number. Most Improved Female Artist nominee Rebecca Zhu (朱晨麗), right, impressed with a pale gold. She wore a bodycon dress that accentuated her curves. Eliza Sam (岑麗香), middle, also gravitated toward gold, with a top embellished with sequin.
Pink to White
Quite a few nominees went for the safer light colors, such as Most Improved Female Artist winner Grace Chan (陳凱琳), far left, who opted for a cyclamen pink dress with a flowery top that flattered her bust. Selena Li (李施嬅), middle left, dressed like a white swan, with a beautiful feathered top and a splash of pink on the skirt. Most Improved Female Artist nominee Rosina Lam (林夏薇), middle right, had on a rather plain white dress, but it surprised with a golden snake that swirled around the back of her collar and to the side of her waist. Guest presenter Sharon Chan (陳敏之), far right, had on a sophisticated white mermaid gown.
Colors and Prints
Pale colors ruled the TVB Anniversary Awards red carpet, but not all nominees chose to blend in with the crowd. Samantha Ko’s (高海寧) ball gown, left, was black with a tint of deep purple. Mandy Wong (黃智雯), middle, had on an off-shoulder dark teal dress, and Most Popular Female Character winner Kristal Tin (田蕊妮) along with her Ghost of Relativity <鬼同你OT> costar Moses Chan (陳豪), right, added more colors to the carpet with their matching blues. Kristal shared that she had on over $15 million HKD worth of jewelry, and that her dress was so tight she couldn’t breathe.
Best Supporting Actress and Most Improved Female Artist nominee Jacqueline Wong (黃心穎), left, wore a lucky traditional red gown, and her With or Without You <東坡家事> costar Vincent Wong (王浩信) accompanied her with a matching black tux suit. Most Popular Female Character nominee Alice Chan (陳煒), middle, and Sisley Choi (蔡思貝), right, were the unique stars of the night, choosing to wear patterned dresses with flower print. Alice said she wore $11 million HKD worth of jewelry.
