Be­spoke jew­eller Diana Zhang kicked off her heels and blos­somed for our cover shoot

Hong Kong Tatler - - Behind The Scenes -

hen she ar­rived for our shoot in a con­trast­ing pair of spiky Louboutins—one black, one white—it was clear Diana Zhang has her own unique take on style. Try­ing on the clothes, she loved ev­ery­thing by Gucci and Dior, and was par­tic­u­larly taken with a pair of Giuseppe Zan­otti heels. In don­ning a cropped one-shoul­der look from Is­abel Marant, Diana ex­posed a wash­board stom­ach. Con­cerned that it might be too re­veal­ing, she was re­as­sured by the Hong Kong Tatler ed­i­tors—who weren’t in the least bit jeal­ous of her won­der­fully toned abs. Prop stylist Gemma Hay­den Blest set buck­ets of flow­ers all over a set dec­o­rated with Chi­nese pan­els from Lala Cu­rio. One of the shots in­volved the en­tire crew scat­ter­ing rose petals in front of a fan to be blown over Diana while she danced around to Tay­lor Swift. End­lessly chirpy and po­lite through­out the ex­haust­ing full-day shoot, our model col­lapsed in a heap after the last photo was shot. We sent her home for a well-earned rest with a huge bunch of roses.

Turn to p.114 for the the cover story. Diana Zhang’s Orchid King neck­lace, which can be sep­a­rated into a brooch, choker and hair ac­ces­sory, is formed from ti­ta­nium and 18K gold, and set with 12 carats of Colom­bian emer­alds and more than 5,500 di­a­monds.
