The ti­tle of Most Promis­ing Young Lady, an award spon­sored by Shang­hai Tang, was pre­sented to Kris­tine Li, the Stan­ford grad­u­ate and grand­daugh­ter of prop­erty ty­coon Lee Shau-kee who is spear­head­ing the fam­ily busi­ness’s lat­est pro­ject, H Queen’s. Kris­tine’s mother, Mar­garet Li, looked on proudly as Kris­tine thanked her fam­ily, in par­tic­u­lar her younger sis­ter Vickie Li, when ac­cept­ing her award.

Kent Ho took home the award for Leader of To­mor­row, which is spon­sored by The Ma­callan. Kent launched Spec­trum 28 Cap­i­tal, one of the largest early-stage ven­ture cap­i­tal funds in Sil­i­con Valley, in 2005 and also serves as ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of Sing Tao News Cor­po­ra­tion. Kent’s speech drew thun­der­ous ap­plause as he rem­i­nisced about meet­ing—and sub­se­quently mar­ry­ing—emily in the very same ballroom in which he was now speak­ing. The evening also marked Kent’s birth­day, with the birth­day boy be­ing treated to a cake as he re­turned to his seat.

The third award, spon­sored by Shang­hai Tang, was that of Most Stylish Woman. This year it went to Valerie Chow, a lo­cal fash­ion icon and founder of chil­dren’s de­signer con­cept shop Mama Kid. Valerie, who gave an emo­tional thanks to her hus­band, Dar­ryl Goveas, will rep­re­sent Hong Kong in the an­nual Asia’s Most Stylish fea­ture and pho­to­shoot to take place in Venice, Italy, later this year.
