Vi­va­cious, al­lur­ing, and charm­ing—words that im­me­di­ately come to mind when you are in the pres­ence of style afi­cionado Amanda Chaang. The 27-year-old, best known for her cur­rent role as TV host for Astro Su­per­Sport, is no stranger to tak­ing risks with her per­sonal style. Her style, as Amanda de­clares, is never clearly de­fined. “Fash­ion is emo­tional. It makes me feel like the other ver­sion of my­self, like my Sun­day best—just throw­ing stuff on cre­ates a mood so spe­cific and dif­fer­ent ev­ery­day,” she ex­plains. How­ever, she ad­mits that dress­ing for work can be tricky. Mind­ful that “clothes trans­late dif­fer­ently on screen,” Amanda strives to en­sure that the pieces she has to work with look flat­ter­ing on her when she goes on-air. “You could say I was born into fash­ion,” Amanda di­vulges. “My mother has im­pec­ca­ble taste in fash­ion. I still go through her wardrobe of ex­ten­sive vin­tage pieces.” Cit­ing Bianca Jag­ger at the height of the Stu­dio 54’s fame, as well as Lau­ren Santo Domingo, co-founder of Mo­daOperandi.com, as some of her style he­roes, Amanda con­tin­ues, “I adore women with a unique sense of style. Their iconic looks re­flect their suc­cess and it’s very em­pow­er­ing.”

At the me­dieval-themed speakeasy, Vir­gin & Throne, this grace­ful beauty stuns the set of the shoot in a 1920s-in­spired en­sem­ble: Vatanika fringed dress in gold, paired with Os­car de la Renta beaded tas­sel earrings and gold-chained Giuseppe
