Bigwigs from the arts and entertainment industry such as actresses Fann Wong and Zoe Tay, director Jack Neo, and actor Lim Kay Tong hammed it up for the camera at the Esplanade last Sunday afternoon.

They were among 29 stars who lit up the stage during a shoot for an upcoming book tentatively titled Living The Singapore Story: 1965-2015.

Commissioned by the National Library Board and produced by The Straits Times Press, the book will profile Singaporeans from a diverse spectrum of society who have played a role in the country's development. It is expected to be launched in May.

The shoot's sponsors are the Esplanade, Makeup Forever, Makeup Entourage, Redken, Rasel and Second Charm.

The stars paid tribute to music composer and Cultural Medallion winner Iskandar Ismail, who had committed to the shoot although he was ill. Mr Iskandar died the day before from lung and brain cancer.
