Chiling Lin: The Golden Horse host plays it safe, almost basic, with a black Zuhair Morad dress, a flash of cleavage and bright red lipstick.
Sylvia Chang: Kudos to the star of the Hong Kong musical The Office for keeping it real. A sensible adult can cover up on a cold night and still look good on the red carpet.
Shu Qi: Stand back. The star of The Assassin is in full smouldering mode. Scorched by her gaze, you might barely notice she is dressed like an Arabian dancing girl – or worse, an Arabian dancing girl in wet clothing.
Simon Yam: People, never try this at home. The sexy brigand look can be pulled off only by PhD-level charmers such as Yam. Even Johnny Depp would look dumb in this.

Gwei Lun-mei: The Taiwanese star makes a bold choice, wearing an unusual dress with a voluminous pannier by exiting Christian Dior designer Raf Simons. Unfortunately, she also looks like she is packing a bench underneath her gown.
