Cosmopolitan Singapore celebrated its first birthday in style at Mink, the hottest club in Singapore on 13th September 2012. The event was attended by more than 300 guests made up of celebrities, clients and readers. Among the celebrities, familiar faces like George Young, Bobby Tonelli and Oli Pettigrew made up the Man Panel who answered questions from ladies in the crowd. Popular stage and TV actor Adrian Pang was the host for the evening.
Besides being Cosmo’s birthday party, the magazine also presented the Fun Fearless Females Awards. The event celebrates the achievements of 12 ladies from a number of fields such as volunteerism, arts, media, business and entertainment. The award was presented by Sunsilk, with Aldo being the fashion sponsor.
In an effort to ensure that the party began in a truly fun and fearless way, guests were treated to a special opening act performed by none other than the Cosmo editorial team. The team – made up of editor-in-chief Deborah Tan, features editor Denise Li, sub-editor Tan Lili, editorial assistant Vanessa Tai and graphic designer Candice Phang – trained for three months with a bellydance teacher for a four-minute veiled dance segment. When they revealed themselves, the crowd responded with rapturous applause and loud cheers.
Magic Babe Ning, a finalist of the Cosmopolitan’s Fun Fearless Females, did a very sensual escape act from a double-strait jacket, which added to the excitement of the party.
The Aldo Role Model Award was given to Samantha Scott-Blackhall, one of Singapore’s most experienced and respected female theatre directors. With 10 years of experience under her belt, Samantha started career at a time when female directors were few and far between.
The Sunsilk Rising Star Award was given to Celeste Chong, the co-founder and marketing director of one of Singapore’s most popular nightspots – The Butter Factory which has recently expanded its business into Malaysia.
The Ultimate Fun Fearless Female Award went to Power 98FM DJ Emily Teng who is the founder of charity group Blessings In A Bag. She will also be the only Singapore representative in an Everest expedition Women For Women International this October. This expedition hopes to raise funds to help women survivors in war-torn areas like Iraq, Congo and South Sudan and Emily has taken no-pay leave to be a part of the team.
