Suit­ing Up

Lux­ury hote­lier ex­traor­di­naire Sonia Cheng can go from board­room busi­ness­woman to red-car­pet star­let in the blink of an eye

Hong Kong Tatler - - Behind The Scenes -

Rosewood ho­tel group ceo Sonia Cheng ar­rives on set in a stylishly sim­ple en­sem­ble of silk blouse, skinny trousers and sky­high Char­lotte Olympia pumps. “I love th­ese,” she ex­claims at the sight of a Stella Mccart­ney jacket and 3.1 Phillip Lim tops as she checks the wardrobe for our shoot with fash­ion ed­i­tor Jus­tine Lee. Net-a-porter and Matches Fash­ion had a se­lec­tion of gar­ments spe­cially flown in, in­clud­ing the lat­est items from the likes of Givenchy and Gi­ambat­tista Valli—all per­fect matches with Cheng’s sharp and so­phis­ti­cated taste.

Cheng feels a tad shy in front of Raul Do­casar’s cam­era at first and asks for some mu­sic—jay-z and Drake—to ease her nerves. As soon as the flash goes off, the mother of two trans­forms into a star­let in her el­e­ment on the red car­pet. Be­tween takes she talks ex­cit­edly about a New York hol­i­day planned with hus­band Paulo Pong—“we’re leav­ing the kids at home, so it will be a quiet lit­tle get­away for us.” Cheng may be all business in the board­room, but she showed us her softer side on set.
