8 Famous Celebrities and Personalities Who Rock Charles & Keith
From humble beginnings as an upmarket shoe store in Amara Shopping Centre in 1996, Charles & Keith has since grown to become the internationally acclaimed high street fashion chain it is today. The pride and joy of brothers Charles and Keith Wong, the brand has not only disrupted the local footwear & accessories retail scene, but also carved itself a niche as a recognised fashion brand worldwide.
Little surprise then, that its repertoire of celebrity ambassadors has expanded to include some of the most prominent names in showbiz, fashion and social media. From television sensations to celebrated names in high society, here are 8 famous celebrities and personalities who have graced the style collections of Charles & Keith!
1. Maisie Williams
Arya Stark may be all tomboyish in Game of Thrones, but Maisie Williams sure knows how to dress playfully yet elegantly for the occasion. The young starlet was spotted with an evening wristlet and prism minaudière from Charles & Keith at the 2016 Emmy Awards and BAFTA Tea Party – an unorthodox accessory which evokes the difference in her on-screen and off-screen personalities.
2. Pixie Lott
At just 26, English singer-songwriter Pixie Lott has made herself a name in the music and showbiz industry. All about being casual and cool, classic yet quirky, Pixie Lott encapsulates the Charles & Keith brand through her personality and fashion.
3. Jeanette Aw
Affectionately known as one of the Ten Beauties of Caldecott, local actress Jeanette Aw has come a long way since her Little Nyonya days. While Aw’s fashion style has had its share of hits and misses, one thing’s for sure – this homegrown beauty has been rocking a bolder, sexier look as of late. Whoever said age tempers one’s fashion sense clearly needs to take a page out of Jeanette’s book. The actress was seen donning a pair of Charles & Keith’s black gladiator boots at this year’s Singapore Fashion Week – a bold fashion statement that reflects her newfound style.
4. Andrea Chong
Local millennial inspiration Andrea Chong is no stranger to the celebrity spotlight – she is, after all, known affectionately as the “Asian Taylor Swift” by fans and admirers alike. A local social media influencer and founder of DC Creatives, Andrea’s knack for self-curated fashion styles and love for edgier clothing has earned her features in respected publications such as Nylon Japan and Harper’s Bazaar Singapore.
Down-to-earth and extremely industrious (she’s a self-professed worker bee), this outstanding fashion and social media icon is a former host of the ClickNetwork’s “That F Word” show and has emceed for Victoria Beckham’s exclusive showcase at the Marina Bay Sands. She is seen here decked out in flat mules, a clutch bag and handbag from Charles & Keith – minimalist and sophisticated, just like her personality.
5. Arissa Cheo
Fashion and a jet-setting lifestyle go hand in hand, and local socialite – fashion entrepreneur Arissa Cheo’s Arissa X Collection is a strong testament to that. There are literally no bounds to this fashion icon’s style – from classic, feminine dresses to audacious and wild denims and metallics – Cheo is a self-styled fashion maverick in every sense of the word.
Citing her love for poetry, music and literature, Cheo’s celebration of riot-girl motifs is a homage to rebellious youth and draws inspiration from music and pop culture. She’s seen decked out in Charles & Keith’s acetate frame sunglasses, stone hoop earrings and boxy cube sling bag – semblances of opulence and classiness which provide stark contrast to her otherwise rebellious, wild-child fashion inclinations.
6. Oracle Fox (Amanda Shadforth)
The online moniker and name of her world-renowned creative agency, Australian photographer and stylist Amanda Shadforth is better recognised as the creative genius behind “Oracle Fox”. With a following of nearly 1.5 million and an impressive portfolio of collaborations with brands such as Versace, Ralph Lauren and Louis Vuitton, Shadforth’s knack for fashion has made her one of the most influential voices in the global fashion scene today. She is seen here donning Charles & Keith’s embellished ankle boot and tassel shoulder bag.
7. Lottie Moss
The younger half-sister of British supermodel Kate Moss, Charlotte “Lottie” Moss holds more than her own weight when it comes to beauty and fashion. Scouted a year earlier than her sister, Lottie was already a model for her family-run clothing store. Fresh-faced with a “very English rose look”, her fashion style consists of softer, simpler outfits with hints of youthful playfulness. She’s seen here donning Charles & Keith’s oversized buckle platform, adding femininity to her otherwise rocker-chic, masculine look.
8. Yoyo Cao
One of Singapore’s most prominent social media personalities and leading voices in Southeast Asia’s fashion scene, Yoyo Cao’s meteoric rise to fame in the global fashion and style scene has been nothing short of extraordinary. In just 3 years, @yoyokulala has earned herself multiple mentions in reputable magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue, graced the cover of Elle Singapore and is the official ambassador for a slew of luxury brands such as Tiffany & Co. , Chaumet, Bulgari and Mont Blanc. Celebrated for her ability to re-interpret the old and bending the traditional gender rules of fashion, this is one creative genius that has taken the global fashion industry by storm.
She is pictured here with Cut out flat mules and Boxy crossbody sling bag from the Alice in Wonderland Collection, Charles & Keith’s debut collaboration with Disney.
