Vicky Chen might only be 16, but she’s shaping up to be a style star. Take a look at her hot pink heart-shaped neckline Paule Ka outfit she wore at the Hong Kong Film Awards. She masterfully paired it with a Roger Vivier bag, Giuseppe Zanotti silver heels and Cartier rings.

Nominated for Best Leading Actress for her role in The Garden of Evening Mists at the 56th Golden Horse Awards, Malaysian actress Angelica Lee Sinje looked resplendent in a gown from Dior Pre-Spring 2020. The stylish interplay of translucent white lace against the black lingerie gave Lee the winning look of the night.
Yang Mi graced the red carpets of the Hainan International Film Festival dressed in a bespoke black and silver Celine gown and Stuart Weitzman stilettos. The unique waist cut-outs and high slit silhouette gave the Chinese actress sexiness and elegance.
