This year’s Golden Horse Awards ceremony, held at the Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall in Taipei on Saturday, 26 November showed Mainland Chinese films dominating pretty much every single category. However, the biggest excitement and surprise came when it was announced that Ma Sichun and Zhou Dongyu would share an unprecedented Best Actress win for their roles in Soul Mate.
To receive their awards, Ma looked dreamy in a Luisa Beccaria tulle piece with soft rainbow colours that embodied beauty and romance, while Zhou sparkled in a soft orange halter dress by Miu Miu with a crystal neckline embellished with carefully placed silk stripes to create a Byzantine effect. Meanwhile, actress Gwei Lun-mei stunned in a Chanel black-and-white short-sleeved sequined gown with a subtle plunging neckline — classy but not over the top. And as always, Shu Qi rocked the bombshell department by dazzling in a light bronze beaded Roberto Cavalli dress that lit up the red carpet. Few women other than Shu could pull this number off in such a sexy yet tasteful way, which is why we award her with the winning look of the night.
Giorgio Armani famously said that ‘elegance is not catching somebody’s eyes; it’s staying in somebody’s memory’, a mantra that was reflected in this year’s Golden Horse Award’s red carpet fashion.
