Actress-writer Gingle Wang (王淨), nominated for best supporting actress in a mini-series/TV movie for her role in the series “On Children — The Last Day of Molly,” stole the hearts with a shoulderless full-length fluffed-out gown.

She wore dangling diamond earrings and her hair was tied up in a neat and tidy bun.

Another highlight of the red carpet was the members of Plungon — Hao Tzu (浩子) and A Hsiang (阿翔), who stood out in matching gray and black suits with black leather shoes.

Always bringing a smile to the audience, the pair walked up the red carpet waving and greeting their fans.

Celebrities Kid (林柏昇) and Hsiao Kuei (小鬼), hosts of the popular variety show Mr. Player (綜藝玩很大), got people excited when they arrived dressed in black and white but showed a clear contrast in styles.

Holding a selfie stick with his shirt untucked, Kid wore a black flat breasted jacket with two large shiny zippers on both sides, while Hsiao Kuei donned a more traditional black tuxedo with a matching bowtie and a pocket square.

Presenter Sandy Wu (吳姍儒), daughter of famous Taiwanese talk show host Jacky Wu (吳宗憲), stunned the crowd with a full-length shoulderless velvet lavender cocktail dress that flowed along the carpet.
