It was a red-hot, star-studded affair at rooftop bar Loof on Thursday (Sep 1), as Chinese fashion and beauty magazine NUYOU celebrated its 40th anniversary in style.
The glitzy party, which had the theme "a touch of red", was attended by a bevy of local celebrities, including actors Ian Fang and Chris Tong, actress Jeanette Aw, singers Kelly Poon and Tay Kewei as well as celebrity hair maestro David Gan, among others.
To celebrate the special anniversary, the NUYOU team has also put together a commemorative bumper issue. The birthday edition features a triple gatefold cover headlined by three of the region's biggest stars: local star Zoe Tay, Taiwanese singer Jolin Tsai and co-host of South Korean variety show Song Ji-hyo.
Other highlights include a showcase of the latest Fall/Winter collections by top international names such as Gucci's Alessandro Michele, Fendi's Silvia Venturini Fendi, Mulberry's Johnny Coca, Coach's Stuart Vevers, Michael Kors, Tory Burch and Anya Hindmarch, who also share their birthday well wishes.
Terence Lee, NUYOU Editor-in-Chief, said: "NUYOU is not just a fashion and beauty magazine; we also inspire and empower women through our personality and feature stories. One of the biggest stories in this issue is "Smile, we're 40", where we gathered 20 amazing women who share how they feel about reaching this important milestone."
"In addition, we put the spotlight on the next generation of movers and shakers by rounding up 15 game changers under 30 from different fields. It's our way of championing new talent while offering an engaging read.
Diana Lee, General Manager of SPH Magazines, said: "It is no mean feat for a women's Chinese fashion and beauty title to cross its 40th year milestone. This wouldn't have been possible without the continued support and encouragement from our readers and advertisers over the years."
As part of the celebrations, NUYOU launched a limited edition jewellery collection in collaboration with RISIS, which is also celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. The magazine also worked with Amsterdam fashion brand Scotch & Soda to create a stylish limited edition pouch.
Other NUYOU Fabulous 40 treats for readers include: A chance to win $12,000 worth of Amara Hotels & Resorts staycations for every copy of NUYOU purchased at Cheers convenience stores; a chance to win one of the four pairs of return air tickets worth a total $5,000 to Gold Coast, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney, in partnership with Scoot; and a 40 per cent discount for all all readers who sign up for a one-year print or digital subscription of NUYOU!
