Trailblazer Awards 2016: Illuminating Wisma Atria!


On Wednesday evening (2nd Nov), honoured 33 Trailblazers from the Fashion, Arts, and Music industries at Wisma Atria. Laudable accomplishments aside, these individuals have all inspired us – and many more – with their brilliant minds and positive energy in one way or another. Kudos to our award winners!

Hosted by the charming Bobby Tonelli and effervescent Yasminne Cheng, the second edition of our Awards was a star-studded affair that saw fans, who had camped patiently at Wisma Atria for hours, screaming their lungs out and raising adoring placards for the stars of their hearts.

And the celebrities did not disappoint with their wide smiles and generous selfie opportunities. Mediacorp artistes and award recipients in attendance include Desmond Tan, Rebecca Lim, Ya Hui, Felicia Chin, Andie Chen, Ian Fang, Elvin Ng, and of course, Zoe Tay – our Cover Girl of the Decade. Friends of styleXstyle Sora Ma, Belinda Lee and Jeffrey Xu (aww, Felicia!) came to lend their support too.

Of course, what’s a soiree without music? As the awards were presented by our distinguished guests Ms Jessie Sng (Mediacorp's Head of Women, Men, Parenting Segments), Mr Chang Long Jong (Mediacorp's Deputy CEO), Desmond Choo (Member of Parliament for Tampines GRC), Adrian Pang, and Ms Chan Shuk Lin (Vice President, Marketing YTL Starhill Global Property Management Pte Ltd), our guests were treated to a rousing performance by local songbird Joanna Dong, who began the night proper with her spot-on renditions of You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile and Que Sera Sera.

Award winners Frances Lee, Ethel Yap, and Inch Chua – all vocal powerhouses – took the stage later in the evening too, and wowed the crowd with their soulful voices.

Trailblazer Awards 2016 also proved to be an opportune time to catch up with our community members Nurulia, Clara, Cassandra, Joelle and more amidst canapés and desserts (the macarons were lovely) from Luxe Catering, as well as free-flow champagne and wines. Thank you for coming, dear ladies.

The night concluded with a spectacular burst of silver confetti, and in that glorious moment, we couldn’t help but feel grateful for all the love we’ve received. Once again, we’d like to thank everyone who has had a hand in making Trailblazer Awards 2016 a success! We couldn’t have done it without you.
