Ending this 15th anniversary year on a high, Harper’s BAZAAR Malaysia celebrates 15 style trailblazers in the most spectacular Malaysia’s Most Stylish Women project to date, featuring inspirational women who continue to challenge the status quo. BAZAAR’s leading ladies live out their most surreal experiences through dreamy transformations, captured in the spirit of Man Ray, Kiki de Montparnasse, and Salvador Dalí, in a three-day fashion fantasy at the glamorous Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur.
AMANDA CHAANG, 27, Television Host at ASTRO Sports
“When I look good, I automatically have confidence that overrides any discomfort.” – Amanda Chaang
“I get cold very easily,” explains Amanda, who rocks up to BAZAAR’s cocktail session with Bvlgari in a bright yellow Fendi jumper and knee-high boots. A look quite unlike those in attendance—think Jenny from the Block meets Jessica Rabbit. It’s a look only the 27-year-old could pull off, judging from her warm girl-next-door sensibilities. And it is this same persona that catapulted her into superstardom as a host on Astro SuperSport, despite it being a male-dominated industry. But Amanda walks and talks the part. “For me, comfort is always key. Two years ago, I converted from four-inch heels to sneakers, and I’ve never looked back.”
