It is safe to say that 987 DJ Sonia Chew has cemented her It Girl status.

The 25-year-old, who co-hosts 987's The Shock Circuit from 4pm to 8pm on weekdays, is adored for her wit on radio.

Off it, she is amassing serious TV credentials.

Chew hosts the award-winning Travel SSBD and 
has acted in series such as A Selfie's Tale and TGI... WTF on Toggle.

Outside of work, Chew's quirky but well-thought out sartorial choices has made her MediaCorp's queen of fashion.

She is shy about the title, though, saying: "I never saw myself as a leader in fashion, but thank you!"

While her style is constantly evolving, Chew said her "general vibe centres around edgy and bold - not just with clothes but with footwear, hair and make-up too".

Her love for fashion kicked in during her second year at Ngee Ann Polytechnic.


"Being in poly gave me so much freedom to explore my personal style, so I experimented with lots of things."

Fashion excites her.

"The fact that it can reflect your personality instantly, at a glance. Also, fashion is a language. You can make or break a first impression, form opinions, stun a crowd all with fashion."

Chew has considerable influence, especially on Instagram, where she has over 62,000 followers.

"I definitely do have a lot of girls between the ages of 18 and 28 following me on Instagram. I do want to stay as relatable and real as possible.

"I don't have the body of a model or the face of Jessica Alba, but I try my best to dress according to what's best for my petite body frame, and stay away from things that may shorten or shrink me even further."

Chew has her own heroes too.

"I love Kiko Mizuhara's attitude and style, Yoyo Cao's knack for putting a solid outfit together and Chriselle Lim for exuding elegance in every get-up."
