Hong Kong Tatler Society - - Top 25 Parties Of The Year -

The Hong Kong Tatler Ball is renowned for kick­ing off the an­nual party sea­son with a bang, and the 2015 edi­tion was no ex­cep­tion. On ar­rival at the Grand Hy­att Hong Kong, guests tra­versed a dra­matic hall of mir­rors to a cock­tail re­cep­tion hum­ming with the ex­pec­tant chat­ter and laugh­ter of friends old and new. Hong Kong’s loveli­est lu­mi­nar­ies, be­decked in their finest frocks and rocks, filled the room. Af­ter much cham­pagne, caviar and chat­ter, the doors opened to re­veal a lav­ishly dec­o­rated ball­room. The mag­a­zine’s highly an­tic­i­pated an­nual awards in­cluded Most Promis­ing Young Lady, which went to Candy Chuang. Clau­dia Shaw, the buyer and re­gional style ad­viser for Chanel, was named Most Stylish Woman. Most Stylish Man went to the dap­per Peter Che­ung, a vet­eran of the lux­ury in­dus­try who had re­cently launched his own brand con­sul­tancy. Michel La­mu­nière, ex­ec­u­tive chair­man of Edi­presse Me­dia Asia, pre­sented mag­nate Pansy Ho with the Di­a­mond Award, which recog­nises im­por­tant work by an in­di­vid­ual in shap­ing Hong Kong and the world. The award in­cluded HK$100,000 from Hong Kong Tatler to be do­nated to a char­ity of Pansy’s choos­ing; she nom­i­nated the Hong Kong Girl Guides As­so­ci­a­tion. As the evening drew to a close, award-win­ning cover band Liq­uid Blue fired up and in­stantly had peo­ple out of their seats with an en­er­getic set of catchy pop hits.
