10 standout looks at the Singapore Tatler Ball
From elaborate gowns to edgy evening dresses and stunning accessories, we give you our favourite red carpet successes at our soiree of the year.
As we draw closer to this biggest, most glamorous, and highly-anticipated party of the year, we pick the 10 society ladies who ace their red carpet fineries, every time.
Rany showed off her eye for design in this red hot, mermaid-cut beauty from Zuhair Murad’s Autumn/Winter 2011/12 Haute Couture collection.
For 2010’s theme of ‘Great Romances’, Susanna arrived in this glittery silver Zuhair Murad perfection which extended out to a romantic tulle train, and paired it with edgy gladiator stilettos – perfectly showcasing the style chameleon’s spontaneous approach to fashion.
Sharel nailed 2008’s ‘White Tie & Tiara’ theme with just two elements – a matching diamond tiara and wrist cuff from DeFred Jewellers, and a stunning scarlet Marchesa gown, where her heart-shaped bustier featured romantic feather detailing for just that hint of fun.
Zac Posen showed his skill in structured folds, shapes and textures in this sculptural masterpiece, as worn by Marisa. A single, discreet timepiece ensured that all attention stayed on the avant-garde gown.
For our Shanghai 1930 themed ball, Celina added high shine in this dazzling Francis Cheong gown, which expertly merged tradition and modernity using exquisite embroidery detailing, a Chinese cheongsam collar, and then finished with a modern train.
Black need not be boring, as Elaine proved with this Shirley Li number. She focused on three standout details: an elaborately embroidered collar, laced translucent train, and a studded gold Alexander McQueen skull clutch.
Paige was a picture of classic sophistication, thanks to this glamorous blooming beauty from Carolina Herrera, which also perfectly matched our ‘Enchanted Garden’ theme in 2013.
Yes, you can definitely go full black and still be edgy – like Celeste did with this silky Frederick Lee gown. A shorter front hem revealed an inner layer of bright fuchsia pink, where she then completed the look with a matching pink Philip Treacy clutch.
Iroshini showed her elegant take on our 2010 theme of ‘Great Romances’, in this alluring Tadashi Shoji creation pieced together in ladylike ruffles and chiffon.
Just like her namesake, Grace effortlessly pulled off the 2011 theme, ‘Shanghai 1930’ in this sensuous laced black and dust pink Renee Leong gown, perfected simply with a stylishly coiffed hairdo.
