KUALA LUMPUR: In line with the theme of ‘Fashion and Music,’ local artistes and celebrities decked out in fabulous outfits sashayed in style during the red carpet session this evening at the finals of the 32nd Anugerah Juara Lagu (AJL 32) at the Axiata Arena in Bukit Jalil.
Their elegant appearances certainly got the attention of pixmen and videographers as they made their way to the special stage area to further parade the designer garb and pose for sensational shots.
It seemed black and blue were the colours of choice for most of the stars that didn’t want to go overboard and would rather play safe with hues that were more suited to an evening event.
The celebrities and artistes who graces the red carpet session included Noraniza Idris, Indah Ruhaila, Sufian Suhaimi, Aiman Tino, Shiha, Amira Othman, Nadia Brian, Floor 88, Ifa Raziah, Siti Sarah Rausuddin and husband Shuib, as well as Sufie Rashid and Ezlyn.
Nabila Razali, who wore a simple dress by designer Ezuwan Ismail, said that the choice of a clear and soft colour was a show of support for fellow singer and composer of her song, Hael Husaini, whose big hit single, Jampi, was being performed in competition for AJL 32.
The prestigious competition sees 12 songs vying for the Best Song award. What’s interesting is that the AJL 32 trophy was designed by popular local fashion designer Rizman Ruzaini which is in keeping with the event’s theme.
The competing songs are Akhirnya Cinta sung by Salma, Aku Cinta (Syamel and Ernie Zakri), Aku Yang Sebenar (Hazama & The Penglipur Lara), Amboi (Altimet) and Bayang (Khai Bahar), as well as Jampi by Hael Husain, Lebih Sempurna (Syamel), Menahan Rindu (Wany Hasrita), Sejati (Azmi Caliph Buskers), Separuh Mati Ku Bercinta (Dayang Nurfaizah), Tergantung Sepi (Haqiem Rusli) and Warkah Untuk Mu (Ara Johari).
