Clele White – Fashion notes
Paired with sky-high black platform heels, this torso elongating dress flatters Clele’s statuesque frame. Jewellery is kept simple yet eye-catching with crystal bracelets in mixed shades that reflect the light, while the neck is left bare and the hair pulled off the face into a topknot ponytail to show off her beautiful décolletage. A leather metallic clutch adds polish.
Kimberly Billing – Fashion notes
This off-the-shoulder number flatters Kim’s bust line, and she couldn’t resist twirling in the A-line skirt with a flirty, high-low hem! Though the “little black dress” is a classic, black can look harsh against some complexions, and navy is a wonderful alternative that suits most skin tones and hair colours. A statement choker necklace attracts attention to Kim’s gorgeous décolletage and her Hollywood waves.
Ankita Singh – Fashion notes
Petite Ankita looks ready for cocktail hour in this hot-pink bodycon number. Its midi-length balances the low-cut top, keeping things classy. Jewellery is muted but sparkly thanks to a black crystal necklace, matched with strappy black heels. Her eye-catching patterned clutch is the perfect conversation starter.
Belinda Cabanes – Fashion notes
Belinda sports a classic black-and-white outfit, and the look is kept fresh and modern thanks to the flattering V-neck and tulip skirt. Crystal bracelets add a touch of sparkle, while a monochrome pony-hair clutch adds cool texture and detail.
Mary-Anne Vicente – Fashion notes
This printed pencil dress finishes on the knee and cinches in just below the bust line, suiting Mary-Anne’s tall figure beautifully and giving her a striking silhouette. Open-toe heels have the effect of lengthening the leg, and the look is accessorised with a classic three-string pearl bracelet and an iridescent minaudière clutch, just big enough to hold those party essentials.
