Elvin Ng, a man who kickstarted the bullying saga here in Singapore, now has an entirely different reason to be famous at the Star Awards.
Yep, he wore that. An eye-catching ombre pink and crimson suit that looked exactly like a cup of unmixed Bandung. Seriously, the colours are so uncannily similar I wonder if he decided to just spill the drink over his white suit.
You know, since the colour is so difficult to wash off anyway.
Anyway, on a night where most celebrities wore conventional colours of black, blue, or white, his bold style was not lost to the internet.
Ng heartily embraced the discussion around his fashion choice, agreeing that “fashion also means not taking ourselves too seriously, and having a sense of humour” in a Facebook post the very next day.
His accompanying photo? Him in a restaurant, posing with—you guessed it—a cup of exactly that rose syrup beverage he looked like the night before.

I guess the costume really gave a new meaning to I crave a cup of bandung. Maybe it’ll be a codeword for his fans to identify one another.
As with basically everything celebrities do nowadays, though, his outfit did not escape the inevitable fate of… being turned into a meme.
Facebook meme page Memedef pointed out the obvious:

This year’s ceremony at Changi Airport gave the celebrities a unique opportunity to strut down a literal runway.
Many rose to the occasion with spectacular style, ranging from Chantelle Ng’s cyan tulle gown dotted with floral appliques, to Carrie Wong’s shimmering sequined dress that would have blinded cameras under the spotlights.
And of course, there’s that Bandung suit.
We wonder what’ll happen at Star Awards 2022. Maybe someone will come in a green-and-white ensemble that looks like a cendol. Or even dressed like the Gardens By The Bay Supertrees.
