Plunging necklines steal the limelight at TV awards

Viewers' favourite on-screen characters, hosts, programmes, and production crew were honoured at the Star Awards Show 1 on Sunday evening.

But fashion-watchers were definitely eager to see what the stars in attendance were wearing.

Skin-baring outfits seemed de rigeur again this year for female artistes, with celebs like Joanne Peh, Ann Kok, Jesseca Liu, Belinda Lee and Cynthia Koh spotted in dresses that showed off their ample assets.

Black-and-white also seemed to be the colour palette of choice for the night, with the theme spotted on stars like Zoe Tay, Chen Hanwei, Elvin Ng, and Ann Kok.

The jolly affair on Sunday evening brought together former TV stars like Sharon Au, Zheng Wanling, Huang Biren and Chen Xiuhuan.

The show featured many skits which poked fun at the artistes, but according to The New Paper, ruffled at least a few feathers in the crowd.

In one of the skits, host Quan Yifeng pretended to be Rui En and objected to filming a rape scene. It was an obvious reference to the controversy between Rui En and Zhang last August. 

Zhang had talked to the media about the rape scene, after which Rui En wrote in a heated blog post that she is against doing kissing and rape scenes.

She stressed that the particular scene was actually a failed attempt at a rape scene.

The New Paper reported that both Rui En and Zhang did not appear amused during the segment.

When interviewed after the awards show, both were curt in their replies, but denied that the skits went overboard.
