My photo shoot for the July 2013 cover was a won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence. It was shot in Tai O, a charm­ing fish­ing vil­lage tucked into the coast of western Lan­tau, a trea­sure with houses on stilts and a vi­brant mar­ket. I felt like I was back in old Hong Kong.

We ar­rived at the for­mer colo­nial po­lice sta­tion, which had been con­verted into a her­itage bou­tique ho­tel, and I was taken to a beau­ti­ful suite where the make-up artist, stylist and hair­dresser pre­pared me for the shoot. A speed­boat then whisked us to a stun­ning old sam­pan for the first shot ... at which point panic set in as it was early June and the hu­mid­ity was so high. All I could think of was that I would look like a frizz ball, as I had not warned the hair­dresser that I have su­per curly hair with a mind of its own. I also knew that go­ing back to the ho­tel for air-con­di­tioned touch-ups was not an op­tion un­til we had done at least the first few shots, as we were a long way from it. Thank­fully, my hair be­haved and I had a great time ex­plor­ing the area—in 5-inch Dolce & Gab­bana wedges!
