Hong Kong Tatler - - Features -

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.
