“It’s the daisy outfit!” Sheila declares with a grin when I tell her that I love her enthusiasm at our cover shoot. Despite the early morning call-time, the star is full of vitality from start to finish. “I’ve got to customise something like that for when I’m unhappy, I’ll wear it in the morning when I wake up,” jokes the 35-year-old.
Stylist Neo Lirong, who selected the clothes for our cover shoot, says, “I only picked this outfit because it is Sheila we’re shooting.” It says it all – not only is the statuesque beauty able to carry offthe slinky suit with her lean and long body, the vibrant, come-alive prints reflect her positive, enthusiastic approach to life.
Finding Her Happy Place
While many celebrities aim to project a happy demeanour at all times, it’s apparent that Sheila’s infectious vibes are genuine, but she admits it has taken her some time to find her happy place.
When Sheila was featured on the cover of The Singapore Women’s Weekly in April 2018, she was revelling in post-wedding bliss, having just been married to banker Deon Woo. “I had just got married so I was happy because I was in love.” But Sheila’s journey to self-understanding has led her to find joy even in the small things.
“A little over one year on, I’ve realised that happiness comes from really simple things like spending quality time with the people I care about and love. That makes me the happiest.”
