Hong Kong Tatler - - Features -

Be­ing shot for the cover of Tatler was a de­light. We did a long photo shoot, which ac­com­pa­nied a won­der­ful fea­ture on my work for Car­net.

I wore many of my own gowns, but the one that still stands out in my mem­ory was the sil­ver and gold Dolce & Gab­bana Swarovski-beaded dress I wore for the cover. It was a one-of-a-kind couture piece that Olivia Lee-davies chose es­pe­cially for me. It had lit­er­ally just come right off the run­way and I loved it, although I was a bit sur­prised to dis­cover it weighted 27 pounds! I posed and moved in it grace­fully through­out the shoot, as if the fabric were su­per light. It was a beau­ti­ful chal­lenge.
