Fashion Statement

Nick Cheung's bold fashion choice for best actor
Director Wong Kar-wai's The Grandmaster swept the Hong Kong Film Awards last night with 12 prizes including best film, best director and best actress.

However, it was Nick Cheung Ka-fai who won best actor for Unbeatable, a movie about a former boxing champion down and out on his luck and trying to conquer hardships.

When pictures of him with a six-pack went viral, people were not only in awe that the 45-year-old actor could achieve this, but this meant that any other man who put his mind to it could get the same Adonis body.

Cheung worked out for nine months to achieve this body!
But preparing for the role of Ching Fai was suffering, Cheung says. He worked out in the gym for three hours everyday for nine months, and ate only egg whites and boiled chicken or steamed fish.

Not an easy act to follow.

And so it's not surprising Cheung won the best actor award for all his sacrifices.

His choice of wearing a white tuxedo -- tailor made from Ermenegildo Zegna no less -- was a bold one, though from the pictures here the trousers look a bit on the short side, or is it the black shoes that throw us off?

Men's magazine GQ says pairing a white tuxedo with a black bow tie and shoes is appropriate, though in this case perhaps wingtips in black and white might have been snazzier?

Is this outfit stylish or too risque?
On the women's side Carina Lau Kar-ling's halter outfit by Ralph & Russo seems to be missing some fabric below her hips... or are we too conservative?
