Singapore came alive on Saturday and Sunday night as international superstar Mya delivered her Grammy Award winning performances at Amber Lounge.
The prestigious Grand Prix After Party turned up the heat on the city’s party scene as celebrities and F1 drivers flowed through the doors.
For the 11th year in Singapore, Amber Lounge brought its iconic Grand Prix parties to the home of Formula 1’s only night race. Saturday was a sell-out. Guests entered the exclusive pop-up night spot, to witness a brand new look and crystal theme in celebration of Amber Lounge’s 15th Anniversary in 2018.
R&B artist Mya turned back time and brought to life her award-winning hit “Lady Marmalade” as well as “Ghetto Superstar” and other favourites. John Reid of the Night Crawlers rocked out his global hit tune “Push the Feeling”.
As the clock struck twelve, the Amber Lounge Fashion runway became the centre of attention. International models showcased embellished pieces by local designer Nida Shay. Miss Universe Singapore contestants dressed by Bora Aksu wowed the crowd before the drivers strutted their stuff in chic suits by Q Menswear.
Celebrities watching on included ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ stars Liv Lo, Constance Lim and Fiona Xie who rubbed shoulders with Daniel Macpherson, Warren Brown, Keith Duffy, David Coulthard, Martin Brundle and Jacques Villeneuve. The 2018 Amber Lounge Singapore Fashion Show supported Make-A-Wish Singapore, raising much-needed funds to help make sick children’s wishes a reality.
On Sunday, F1 drivers and teams ventured from the paddock to party and celebrated the conclusion of Singapore Grand Prix weekend. Mya headlined, belting out more of her hits. Spotted were F1 drivers Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes AMG Petronas), Nico Hülkenberg (Renault), Esteban Ocon (Force India) who was celebrating his 22nd birthday, Carlos Sainz (Renault), Pierre Gasly (Toro Rosso), Stoffel Vandoorne (McLaren), Marcus Ericsson (Sauber), Brendon Hartley (Toro Rosso), Sergey Sirotkin (Williams) and American rapper/producer Jermiane Dupri.
Throughout the weekend’s parties, a buzzing crowd constantly surrounded the impressive CHANEL display, which made time stand still for those eager to get their hands on one of the brand’s stunning Monsiuer Haute Horlogerie watches.
Guests sipped Lanson Champagne and premium spirits as bubbles flowed from giant methuselah bottles of Cuvée Carbon on the highly-sought-after Methusalem tables. International acts DJ SG, DJ Ono and DJ Buddha of Bangkok Invaders, DJ Micky and DJ Jagger played until the sun rose over the exotic Asian destination.
Sonia Irvine, Amber Lounge’s CEO and Founder, said: “Singapore just keeps getting better and better. Each year we fill our tables and Amber Lounge is brimming with the most vibrant atmosphere you can find at a party. Mya and all the live acts were simply unbelievable and helped create yet another memorable Singapore Grand Prix after party.”
Mya said: “I had an absolute blast performing at the Amber Lounge Singapore Fashion Show and Grand Prix After Party. The atmosphere was incredible, it was so much fun. Definitely one of the best parties I’ve ever been to.”
