The Belle of the Ball

Sarah Ho’s eye for style and ap­petite for fun en­sured that shoot­ing our cover story was an ab­so­lute breeze

Hong Kong Tatler - - Behind The Scenes -

arah ho’s pre­vi­ous shoot for a Tatler ti­tle wasn’t the glam­orous ex­pe­ri­ence she had been hop­ing for. On set for a Ma­cau Tatler cover in 2011, Sarah, who had re­cently dis­cov­ered she was preg­nant with her first child, was hit by a par­tic­u­larly bad case of morn­ing sick­ness. “Ev­ery­one must have thought I was crazy be­cause I kept run­ning to the bath­room and look­ing ab­so­lutely hor­ri­fied when­ever I got of­fered a snack. It was aw­ful be­cause I couldn’t tell any­one what was go­ing on,” she said with a gig­gle.

Hap­pily Sarah was in ro­bust health this time around. She en­joyed a chicken salad lunch and a glass of cham­pagne with the Hong Kong Tatler crew and re­galed us all with hi­lar­i­ous sto­ries about hol­i­days in Italy with her hus­band and two young chil­dren. Sarah got on par­tic­u­larly well with fash­ion stylist Kirsten Lock, bond­ing over their mu­tual ad­mi­ra­tion for all the same de­sign­ers. Sarah was so taken with an em­broi­dered dress by Nee­dle & Thread (above) that she ended up buy­ing it to wear to the Can­cer Fund Ball the fol­low­ing evening. “It was per­fect, and I was so grate­ful be­cause I was plan­ning to dash off to the shops as soon as we wrapped,” said Sarah. “As it turned out, I didn’t need to lift a fin­ger, as Kirsten found the dress for me on Net-a-porter and got it de­liv­ered straight to my ho­tel room.”

Other than a jade bracelet Sarah al­ways wears for luck, all the jew­ellery in our shoot was made by our cre­ative cover star, and the Tatler team was par­tic­u­larly taken by the limited edi­tion set of num­ber-shaped rings Sarah is wear­ing on the cover. We all picked our favourite num­ber and begged Sarah to hold our cho­sen rings for us when they were launched at the Can­cer Fund Ball the fol­low­ing night.
