It was the most important night in local Chinese entertainment and on Sunday night (Apr 9), stars descended on Marina Bay Sands for Star Awards 2023 to walk the red carpet and show off their best looks.

Here at CNA Luxury, we kept our eyes peeled for dazzling bling and statement wrist candy. This year, it was all about diamond-studded watches, as seen on Richie Koh, Rebecca Lim, Zoe Tay and more. Men continued to dress up their lapels with brooches, as seen on Elvin Ng and Qi Yuwu. Meanwhile, Ayden Sng, Joanne Peh and Hong Ling brought out showstopping necklaces to wow the crowd.

Read on below for our full bling report – showcasing the best watch and jewellery looks of the night.


It was a big night for Richie Koh, who took home the coveted trophy for Best Actor. He rocked up to the awards show in an all-white ensemble, sporting a Hublot Big Bang Unico Titanium Pave timepiece replete with 126 diamonds.

Desmond Tan opted for an Alexander McQueen suit this year, accessorising with a Zenith Defy Extreme Double Tourbillon watch and Cartier jewellery.


Sporting a new haircut and a backless black gown, Rebecca Lim wore a vintage Longines timepiece specially flown in from the brand’s museum in Switzerland, featuring a bracelet and bezel entirely set with diamonds.


As a presenter for the night, Joanne Peh dazzled in a gold Ralph Lauren gown, with a S$1.65 million Tiffany & Co Schlumberger Vrille Necklace.
