Let’s check this one out.
ZOE TAY from SINGAPORE.
Our team is trying to find the appropriate superlatives:
She is a
Woman of style.
She’s one soulful contradiction
MAKING HER STATEMENT …..
Roll on, buddy.
ZOE TAY IS STILL SINGAPORE’S TOPMOST GLAM PUSS.
Queen of Caldecott Hill SINGAPORE.
She has been, FOR MORE THAN ONE DECADE.
Passe, you said?
We beg to differ.
She basked in the limelight during her hey days as a top fashion model – long before she metamorphosized her transition into a stunning actress.
We dare say that there’s not one female artiste in MediaCorp Singapore that can photograph as well as ZOE TAY does.
She crosses diverse roles on print, from the sublime to the sultry, the alluring housewife to the vixen.
She’s the ANGEL. She’s the DEMON.
There’s this X-factor in her all her pictures, go ask any glitterati and paparazzi.
ZOE shines. Non-plussed at best.
Maybe only Miss FANN WONG comes close
But that’s another story.
We adored ZOE years ago.
And we still have the hoots for her NOW.
She is one actress that has withstood the test of time.
She’s still sparkling at 40, gloriously attractive all these years,
Some of her once-upon-a-time tarty fans have switched camps,
And may be unkind with their snide remarks about her.
But no matter -
To each his own and spite is adherent in most things we do,
Just like this song A CERTAIN SMILE -
We’ll still go on carrying this torch for her.
A certain smile, a certain face
Can lead an unsuspecting heart
On a merry chase
A fleeting glance can say
So many lovely things
Suddenly you know why my heart sings
You love awhile and when love goes
You try to hide the tears inside
With a cheerful pose
But in the hush of night
Exactly like a bitter sweet refrain
Comes that certain smile
To haunt your heart again
ZOE TAY, the Glam Puss Dichotomy revisited and personified once more.
THIS QUEEN STILL REIGNS DESPITE CHALLENGERS FROM A STEADY STREAM OF SUCCESSORS-IN-WAITING.
There are simply, too many copy-cats,
Talking about FASHIONISTAS -
Our team researched into myriad of pictures of ASIAN BEAUTIES and am captivated by the perennial elegance and allure of:
In HONG KONG, BRIGETTE LIN CHING HSIA, LILY HO and JENNY HU reign supreme, past and present.
In SINGAPORE, our unanimous votes go to ZOE TAY, JACELYN TAY and PHYLLIS QUEK.
In THAILAND? PENPAK SIRIKUL and SINJAI PLENPANICH.
In the PHILIPPINES we are wowed by HEART EVANGELISTA and ANNE CURTIS.
These are BRANDS, not mere products, irreplaceable and will endear and glow- as long as the aura of glimmer still shimmers.
