What we’re all talking about this month.

Future Gazing

We peered into our crystal ball to find out who will make it big this year… so get acquainted with these names as they will be trending in 2020.

Clockwise from top:

Jasmine Sokko

With her face obscured 24/7, Jasmine is a total enigma. That could have led to her win at the 2019 MTV Europe Music Awards as the Best Southeast Asia Act – the first Singaporean to do so.

Florence Pugh

This British actress is poised to become the breakout star of the year when she takes to the screen opposite Scarlett Johansson in Marvel’s standalone Black Widow movie that hits theatres in April. 

Treasure 13

The next big thing in K-pop? This 13-strong boy band will reportedly make its debut this year and look to emulate the success of other YG groups like Big Bang and BlackPink! 

Tei Shi

A rising star in the world of music, Tei Shi is a Colombian-Canadian singer that has made a name for herself as a fashionista, too. Vogue profiled her last year and called her “the darling of downtown designers”. 

Lashana Lynch

You’ll see her in the next Bond instalment, No Time To Die, where she plays a secret agent. Her role has tongues wagging because she’s rumoured to take over as the legendary spy after Daniel Craig leaves the role.

Ayden Sng

This straight-As Raffles Institution alum is already getting lots of buzz as local television’s Next Big Thing, but wait… that’s not all. Besides acting, Ayden can also play the piano, violin and erhu.

Trend Watching

Besides the stars, look out for these trends too.

1. Hangover, Move Over

This year could be the time to say goodbye to the dreaded hangover as more drink makers serve up low-alcohol or no-alcohol alternatives like the Heineken 0.0.

2. Creamy & Dreamy

A 2-in-1 hybrid like the Cream Skin from Laneige, softens the skin like a toner but provides tonnes of moisture like a cream, and looks like it will be the new go-to for die-hard beauty lovers.

3. Marigold Mania

Based on the Spring/Summer 2020 runways at New York Fashion Week, this notquite-mustardnot-quite-gold hue is set to dominate our wardrobes.

And the Oscar goes to…

The 92nd Academy Awards hits our screens on February 10 and honours the best films of the past year. Team Weekly reckons these should be added to the list of awardees.

Belle Of Le Ball

Prom isn’t enough for celebrity kids like Jet Li's daughter who chose to mark her graduation into adulthood at Le Bal, the world’s most exclusive debutante ball.

Jane Li may be a superstar’s spawn but the 19-year-old Harvard student held her own at the ritzy ball in a burgundy Dior gown. She joins a long list of other famous children who have debuted in Paris, including Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe’s daughter, Ava, in 2017.

Love Match

Valentine’s Day falls on February 14. While these couples aren’t real, we wish they were, so we’ve created these dream pairs from TCC Asia’s list of Most Beautiful Faces In Asia 2019 list.

Model good looks aren’t the only thing that binds these two. Both have posed in next to nothing for magazine editorials, too.

She’s an actress and singer. He’s an actor and singer. They already have more in common than most people.
