MONO­CHROME CHIC

Hong Kong Tatler - - Features -

As dawn breaks on a cold Fri­day in Novem­ber, with busi­ness trav­ellers rush­ing through im­mi­gra­tion to the bag­gage hall at Bei­jing Cap­i­tal In­ter­na­tional Air­port, a group of ef­fort­lessly chic women emerges amid the com­mo­tion and glides through the ter­mi­nal to be whisked by lim­ou­sines to the Park Hy­att Bei­jing for the Asia’s Most Stylish shoot. Over the next few days, the re­gion’s most switched-on style mavens will pose, pout, per­form and paint the ul­ti­mate pic­ture of Asian chic for au­di­ences across the con­ti­nent.

The ex­trav­a­ganza be­gins with the tak­ing of por­traits of the first four women—jiang Zaozao from Main­land China, Tan Min-li from Sin­ga­pore, Emily Wang from Tai­wan and Ira Kwa from In­done­sia. Jiang is al­ready in hair and make-up when the oth­ers ar­rive, hav­ing spent the night at the ho­tel to be sure to make her 9am call. She floats across the lobby in Givenchy, un­fazed by ad­mir­ing looks.
