The 38th Hong Kong Film Awards ceremony took place at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre last night, with Anthony Wong of Still Human and Chloe Maayan of Three Husbands being crowned Best Actor and Actress, while Ben Yuen and Kara Wai of Tracey took home Best Supporting Actor and Actress awards. Project Gutenberg, meanwhile, was the biggest winner of the year, winning seven out of 17 nominations, including Best Picture.
While we were very excited for all the nominees and winners, we were especially delighted by the stars who were fabulously dressed for the Hong Kong film industry’s biggest event of the year. Our favourites this year? Those who wore sleek and minimalistic outfits, accented with great jewellery. Scroll down to see the best-dressed stars and take a closer look at what they wore.
We love that Kay decided to forego the typical dresses and gowns, instead choosing to wear a contemporary look from Christopher Esber’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection. The slightly oversized, boxed-out blazer, matched with a pair of flare pants, added a lot of character to the look, while the cut-out detail at the back and waist gave a nice touch of edginess and sex appeal. She completed the look with minimalistic accessories, which included a pair of Alina Bow heels from Giuseppe Zanotti and shimmering diamond jewels from De Beers for a hint of glamour.
Yellow was one of the trending colours on the Spring/Summer 2019 runways, and this Oscar de la Renta gown in a zesty yellow hue looked beautiful on Janice. She was careful not to choose any accessories that would overwhelm or clash with the eye-catching colour, so she chose to wear Bulgari’s white gold-and-diamond earrings and bracelet from the Divas’ Dream collection, as well as Giuseppe Zanotti’s Harmony Sparkle crystal-embellished silver sandals.
Chrissie Chau revealed that she loved this Stella McCartney dress so much that even though it was three sizes too big for her, she still chose it and had it tailored to fit her silhouette. That explains why the plunging neckline seems a little bit too low for her proportion, but nevertheless, she still stood out beautifully on the red carpet for choosing to wear red — from the lipstick and nail colour to the captivating jewels from Bulgari’s Divas’ Dream high jewellery collection — against her sleek white dress. Her shoe selection, meanwhile, was a pair of silver nighttime Nudist sandals from Stuart Weitzman.
We can’t think of anyone else who could carry this modest and refined floor-length dress better than the ever-so graceful Song Hye-kyo. She chose to adorn the sophisticated look with a matching set of earrings and necklace from Chaumet‘s Joséphine Aigrette Impériale collection, which gave her look a beautiful dose of elegance and allure.
Wearing a white lace dress with a plunging neckline and cut-out details, Fiona Sit’s look was sexy and, at the same time, sensual and ethereal. She went for a number of diamond-set jewellery pieces from De Beers — including the Arpeggia five-line necklace, Adonis Rose pendent earrings and the 1888 White Master Diamonds solitaire ring — that exuded an exquisite radiance, and finished up with a pair of Betty Glitter platform sandals by Giuseppe Zanotti for extra height.
Chloe Maayan, who was awarded Best Actress for her performance in Three Husbands, looked very confident in a black, floor-length dress featuring an embellished plunging neckline. She chose to accessorise with jewellery and a clutch bag from Bulgari’s Serpenti collection, which features a powerful and mesmerising gaze much like hers.
Shawn Yue, Andy Lau and Adam Pak
Let’s not forget the gentlemen! While many of them looked very sharp, we particularly enjoy Shawn Yue’s fashionable choice from Celine’s SS19 collection, Andy Lau’s all-black attire from Salvatore Ferragamo for its subtle yet very nice play of print and textures, and Adam Park’s playful and elegant ensemble featuring a Gieves & Hawkes suit and Jimmy Choo loafers.
