Female magazine’s annual search for Singapore’s next fashion stars has entered its 20th year and capped off the milestone with a riotous party at Cherry Discotheque yesterday evening.
Since its inception in 1996, Female’s 50 Gorgeous People has served as an influential platform for discovering individuals with star power and charisma, some of whom have progressed to become today’s well-known personalities, including actor Pierre Png, musician Benjamin Kheng, and founder of Collate The Label, Velda Tan.
Last year, Female’s 50 Gorgeous People rebranded itself to become FemaleGP: The Best Dressed Edition – shifting its focus to identifying the aesthetes who love fashion and have an undeniable style of their own.
Twenty finalists –10 male and 10 female – were shortlisted from over 1,000 Instagram entries and Female crowned the winners at the party. Co-founder of leather good label Omitir Concepts and education consultant, Darren Loke, 26 won the title for Best Dressed Male, and model manager, Parveen Hassanbhai, 28 took home the title of Best Dressed Female. For the first time, a Most Popular category was created and Digital marketer, Isabella Chan, 25 is its inaugural winner.
The Party was hosted by TV presenter Liv Lo and featured music spun by ATTAGIRL’s A/K/A Sounds and DuriO.
The event was made possible with the support from the following sponsors and partners: official car Mitsubishi; official hair sponsor Kimage; official makeup Nars Cosmetics; official mall Orchard Gateway; official party venue Cherry Discotheque; official F&B Luxe Catering, official artesian water Fiji Water; and prize partner W Singapore.
