Did you know that Joanne Peh was a former beauty queen? She participated in the 2002 Miss Singapore Universe (where she won Miss Elegant and Miss Personality), and was talent scouted to join MediaCorp as an actress.
Despite trying to build a budding acting career that would later make her one of the most sought after actresses locally, Joanne also had to juggle school, where she was pursuing a mass communications degree at the Nanyang Technological University.
But it is this down-to-earth and relatable quality that’s become part of Joanne’s charm, not to mention her acting chops that we’ve seen in shows such as C.L.I.F, The Journey, The Little Nyonya and A Tale of Two Cities (the last two earned her the Best Actress award at the 2009 and 2012 Star Awards respectively).
And the hardworking Joanne never seems to stop — from juggling a family of two that she’s built with fellow actor Qi Yuwu, to releasing her directorial debut film Under The Tree that stars model Fiona Fussi and national basketballer Chase Tan.
Another reason to adore her? Her effortless and feminine style. So in celebration of Joanne’s 36th birthday today, let’s take a look at her at some of her stylish looks.
