Red Carpet: Hong Kong Film Awards 2012

From Elie Saab’s Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear collection, Angelababy went her unusual route strolled the red carpets in a purple sequins gown, which gave a midnight glam feel. However, the unstructured gown gave a casual feel to the dress while a black skinny belt cinched the waist, creating a final feminine twist. Red lips are a good choice for an extravagant event like the HK Film Awards, but was it compatible with the already bold colored gown?

Shu Qi’s (舒淇) sexually allure that evening was not her usual bold red lips, but her bold choice of a lime green plunging neckline gown. The top around her chest resembled something exotic, perhaps a snake or cactus, making the dress even more mysterious and desirable for the evening. The hair was paired well with the dress although I question the red lips once again.

Yang Mi (楊冪) went the glamorous lady route, something that any lady can’t go wrong in. With her body shape, it only accentuated the best. Absolutely loved the added tinted of sparkle in her gown.

Black is another common color for red carpet events; nothing ground-breaking, but ultimately, a safe choice. Carina Lau’s (劉嘉玲) gown was simple and casual and the midnight purple brought little to highlight the dress. More tight-fitting dresses would bring out Carina’s figure more.

Michelle Chen’s (陈妍希) strapless floral gown from Valentino’s Resort 2012 was the perfect evening gown for the spring time! She maintained her elegance while bringing out her youth. Her accessories were also fitting for the dress.

Kwai Lun-mei (桂纶镁) who strolled the red carpets in a purplish blue silky dress from Bottega Veneta’s Spring 2012 looked beautiful and young. It is a nice choice for the spring time red carpet events!

Coco Lee (李美林) appeared extravagant and hyped that evening in a low-cut dusty pink ruffles gown. While the dusty pink is compatible with her tan skin tone, the color can easily make some appear lifeless. She looks more like a bride-wanna-be in a wedding dress, if the dress were to be white.

Although Cheng Song has an ultra-cute vibe to her, she could still have dressed up a little more for this event. The color-blocking of white and navy blue is too simple and can almost pass off as a uniform.

Hailu Qin sported a summery floral gown from Tadashi Shoji’s Spring 2012 collection. The diamond statement necklace pumped up her overall look, giving it more than just a summery feel. However, perhaps its the angle of this photo, but this gown appeared more fitting on the runway model and Qin seemed a tad bit short for the dress. Perhaps wear taller heels?

Gao Yuan Yuan (高圓圓) came in a nude qipao inspired gown from Alexander McQueen’s Resort 2012 collection. She paired the dress with a silver clutch and side-swept curls, which was fitting for the vintage feel of the top half of her dress.

Along with Yang Mi, Lin Sze-Nga is perhaps two of the best dressed that evening. The long white gown is simple, but a black belt by the waist instantly adds a touch of effortless dimension. Her blue sandal heels made an interesting contrast to the rest of her outfit and the way she left her long brown hair alone created an overall sleek feminine allure.

Nothing was too awe-strucking about Sandra Ng’s (吳君如) yellow green bare-back dress. It was a good choice for the spring and a better one than black.

The youthful Rose Chan (陳嘉桓) strolled the red carpets in a rosy pink gown, suitable for her age and height. However, something about her side-swept curls wrapped in a ponytail makes her appear older than her age.

Leopard print is very popular these days, but an overdose is not desirable as in Bui An-Kei’s case. In fact, it ages her and the unstructured-ness of the dress creates a lazy and unfeminine feel.

Andy Lau (劉德華) and Deanie Ip (葉德嫻) were the stars of the night! Okay, now let’s get dressed better!

Despite her age, Kara Hui (惠英紅) always makes a youthful appearance at red carpet events. Everything about this piece appears old — and not in a vintage way. Is it her eyebrows or eye makeup that is creating that scary vibe?

Sean Lau (刘青云) and Amy Kwok (郭藹明) aren’t really the fashionable type and they probably don’t care much for the superficial. I like the green for spring, but the hole by the stomach is very distracting.

    1. I didn’t cover everyone, just the ones worthy of a mention, meaning the best and the worst. Was there someone in particular you were looking out for? For these posts, I usually like to sum it up, not making them too short or too long.
