Buro 24/7 Singapore turns one: The most memorable celebrities we've met
1. When Reese Witherspoon gave men some advice on picking a proposal ring
Her tip? Ask what the woman wants. We sat with her for a brief 15 minutes in the plush surrounds of the presidential suite at the St.Regis Singapore. The Legally Blonde actress was in town to launch Tiffany & Co.'s Tiffany Masterpieces.
2. When Nile Rodgers boogied the night away and closed the first evening of Neon Lights 2015
It was a night to remember, with the iconic musician belting out hit after hit. He even rallied some audience members onto the stage. We sneaked in a chat with him at Hotel Fort Canning hours before his closing set, and found out what turns him on.
3. When we were only given a minute with Dev Patel — but loved it nonetheless
He's a man you can't pin down. In town last December for the Singapore International Film Festival to promote The Man Who Knew Infinity — where he plays playing renowned mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan — Patel walked down the red carpet at the Marina Bay Sands Skypark and shared a thing or two about the process of playing a genius.
Yes, the Malaysian-born, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter got deep. In our video interview at Mandarin Orchard before her show last October, she had us in giggly fits as the charmer talked old-school r&b — we even gifted her with a turban from our favourite "turbanator" Gracinha Viterbo.
Thousands of fans together with local and regional media looked on as Chastain, Hemsworth, Theron and their director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan walked down the red carpet at Hollywood Boulevard, Universal Studios in Resorts World Sentosa. We tracked Chastain's visual diary here.
