ICON Ball: Daring dressers on a night of red-carpet glitz

Society women and corporate leaders gathered for a glitzy night, Hollywood style, at the ICON Ball yesterday evening.

The annual event, at Shangri-La Hotel,marked the 10th anniversary of ICON Magazine's publications. The theme of the ball - A Night With Stars - recreated the glamour of red-carpet events in Hollywood.

The 420 guests had the chance to be a star for the night, starting with a walk down a 30m-long red carpet into the ballroom. They also enjoyed beauty touch-ups from specialists at the Cle de Peau makeup booth, and fragrance recommendations from luxury fragrance expert M.Micallef.

The guests were next treated to Max Mara Elegante's presentation of its 2015 Spring/Summer fashion showcase, as well as a guest performance by home-grown singer Nathan Hartono.

The highlight of the night came during the announcement of the 20 Best Dressed women at the ball, who were awarded the title for their daring dresses.

All guests also took home a limited-edition 10th anniversary issue of ICON, which came with a leather jacket designed by bespoke leather goods company, Bynd Artisan.

ICON is a Chinese luxury and lifestyle magazine for Singapore's bilingual elite, published by SPH Magazines.

"In its 10 years, ICON has become the first and most established luxury Chinese magazine, with a strong database and readership," said Mr Sylvester Ng, deputy editor of Icon.
