Being a mountaineer, the Tatler team and I decided to do the shoot among the rocks of Shek O. It should have been a breeze for me—cliffs and wild nature are my natural habitat—but I hadn’t considered the fact that designer frocks and rock surfaces don’t really go hand in hand.
I remember wearing this beautiful floorlength Etro dress with precious jewels to match, and scrambling up a tiny ledge to pose for the camera … until I suddenly lost my footing. I fell off the ledge and onto the jagged rocks below, landing pretty hard—though luckily I didn’t hurt myself too much. Lying in a crumpled heap on the ground in my evening gown was definitely not my finest moment. So much for being an intrepid climber —it took a Tatler shoot to break me.
