Fashion Evolution: Fann Wong – TODAY

Fann Wong, who turns 51 today (Jan 27), sure has come a long way since her modeling days, when she became a household face after appearing in an Oil of Ulan commercial. Once known for her bold and experimental style (remember the lime green hot pants she wore to the 1996 Star Awards?), Fann’s fashion choices have toned down considerably since becoming a mother. Here are some of her most iconic looks.

1995

We’d say Fann’s hair is cute, but we’re getting distracted by the poorly applied falsies on her lower lashes.

Star Awards 1996

Like Ann Kok, Fann made headlines when she turned up at the Star Awards in lime green hot pants and a see-through frilly blouse. Well, at least her legs look nice.

Ah, the 90s, when baggy cargo pants and tiny camisoles were the wardrobe staple of every burgeoning pop star.

Fann’s feathered layers and thin eyebrows take us right back to the turn of the millennium.

Business in front, party at the back! While Fann’s combination of a sexy handkerchief top and skirt isn’t ugly, we were expecting so much more for the gala premiere of her Hollywood movie.

Some wear their hearts on their sleeves. Fann wears her face on her, uh, swimsuit area.

Nothing about Fann’s look — from her cornrows, to her knit turtleneck, to her sequined dress — even matches.

When it comes to bell sleeves, Fann was way ahead of the curve.

While Marilyn Monroe-inspired dresses never go out of style, this one’s uncanny resemblance to a folded top sheet detracts from its sophistication.

Fann literally took our breath away when she walked down the aisle in this Bollywood-inspired bejeweled gown specially designed by Bally. It was so unexpected, so refreshing, and so gorgeous.

Fann caused quite a stir when she turned up at the 2011 Star Awards in this revealing Gucci suit, which “conservative” hubby Christopher Lee had to approve of before she could wear it. Well, if you’ve got it, flaunt it!

While Fann looked absolutely stunning in her flowy Bottega Venetta gown, it was her baby bump (hello Zed Zed!) that stole the limelight.

Before she popped in August 2015, Fann posed for a series of stunning ads for Marie France Bodyline, the most iconic of which is probably the one of her wrapped in cloth in the slimming center’s signature blue hue (the same fabric would later be featured again in Fann’s post-baby bod shoot). And what else can we say?

Willard Scott, legendary TODAY present weatherman, dies at 87

Willard Scott – the legendary TODAY weatherman known for his exuberant personality and a tradition of celebrating fans who have hit the mark of the century – passed away this week, TODAY’s Al Roker has confirmed. He was 87 years old.

Scott, who joined TODAY in 1980, was perhaps best known for wishing a happy birthday to fans turning 100, a feature that has grown in popularity over the years.

Scott, who began his 65-year career at NBC in 1950 as a page at the Washington, DC affiliate station, made predictions on the go and delighted locals with his tireless charm.

“I just love people,” he told the New York Times in 1987. “Many speakers in the discussion group leave immediately afterwards. I do a lot of shmoozing. I am like a dog. You just open the door and I say ‘rrrr, rrrr’ and then I lick everyone’s face. ”

Born March 7, 1934 in Alexandria, Virginia, Scott began broadcasting in the 1950s after graduating from American University in Washington.

In 1955 he began hosting the radio show “Joy Boys” on NBC radio station WRC and remained on the program until the end of the program in 1974.

He also hosted children’s television shows in the 1960s and appeared on WRC with a variety of characters, including Bozo the Clown, a bygone child icon who appeared across the country in the 60s and 70s.

Scott also had the honor of being the first person to play Ronald McDonald, appearing in commercials in the Washington area from 1963.

Scott stayed in Washington during the 1970s, becoming the weather man for NBC’s local Channel 4. In March 1980 the network called and he replaced Bob Ryan as the weather man on TODAY. (Ryan then took Scott’s old job and became a WRC meteorologist.)

No gimmick was too much for Scott. In 1985 he made the weather disguised as Boy George while the singer was at the height of his fame. He also disguised himself as a giant cupid on Valentine’s Day, in a barrel on the day tax was due, and a groundhog to celebrate Groundhog Day.

Perhaps his most memorable stunt, however, was dressing up as Brazilian singer and actress Carmen Miranda on an episode of TODAY in 1983 to secure a $ 1,000 donation to the USO. He took some flak for it, but stuck with it.

“People said I was a fool to do it,” he told the New York Times in that 1987 interview. “Well, I’ve been a buffoon all my life. This is what I did. ”

In 1983, Scott granted a viewer to wish his mother a happy 100th birthday.

He dressed up as Santa Claus at the National Tree Lighting Ceremony in Washington, DC, and at several White House events for several years during the 1980s. From 1987 to 1997 he co-hosted NBC coverage of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and also enjoyed a recurring role as sociable Mr. Poole on the sitcom “The Hogan Family.”

The lovable Scott was also addressed by First Lady Barbara Bush once during the inauguration parade of her husband, President George HW Bush, in 1989.

“All of a sudden I look over and see this very happy face, run over, kiss that face, run back to (husband) George,” she recalls. “He said, ‘I didn’t know you knew Willard Scott.’ I said, ‘I don’t know Willard Scott. I just love that face.’ “

“I think people are so drawn to Willard that they really just want to be part of his orbit, and that includes first ladies,” said Katie Couric, former TODAY host, of the encounter.

In 1996 Scott semi-retired and was replaced by Al Roker on TODAY, although he would stand in for Al for the next 10 years. He officially retired from television in 2015, finishing a 35-year run with TODAY.

“He is a friend. He is literally my second father. “ Al said then.

Scott reappeared in a video on TODAY in August 2019 in which the cast and crew of the show wished Al a happy 65th birthday.

“I can’t believe it. My little guy is 65 years old,” he said. “What is the world for? Hey, listen, now you can get social security on and make even more money. What a lucky guy you are. You are nothing but the best. Who loves you baby

In 1985 President Reagan presented Scott with a Private Sector Award for Public Service. He was married to his wife, Mary Dwyer Scott, from 1959 until her death in 2002. They had two children. He leaves behind his wife Paris Keena, whom he married in 2014.

About today’s entertainment and addictions

Gambling is popular with young and old alike. One researcher’s studies show that the majority of respondents view gambling as an acceptable lifestyle. The desire to win is a strong addiction. It is a very desirable practice, be it on the stock exchange, in the lottery, or in casinos.

Many states have vending machines that display items for the youth that drop coins in hopes of purchasing a toy only to be disappointed. Studies have also shown that winners don’t get the results they were hoping for. The desire to win has left some homeless and destitute behind.

In terms of the entertainment arena, how can games, movies, and sex trafficking provide any form of pleasure? Normal brain cells are affected, and many will be affected by these abnormal and lustful desires. The maker of a doll that most girls play with said they wouldn’t let their child play with it. Anorexia has had a major impact on many young girls. May God help us in this crippled society.
