Hang­ing tough

Sabrina Fung-lam de­liv­ered a shoot far out­side the or­di­nary for our an­niver­sary is­sue and first aug­mented re­al­ity cover

Hong Kong Tatler - - Behind The Scenes -

When she rushed into the stu­dio for this month’s cover shoot, Sabrina Fung-lam had her trainer, An­son Cha, in tow, as they’d just come from a work­out. What serendip­ity. An­son was able to ad­vise Sabrina on ex­e­cut­ing the ath­letic poses we had her do­ing for pho­tog­ra­pher Wing Shya and our good friend Sean Lee-davies, who was on set with his com­pany, Awethen­tic Stu­dio, to shoot Hong Kong Tatler’s first aug­mented re­al­ity (AR) cover—a fit­ting way to catch the fit­ness fa­natic in ac­tion and to kick-start, lit­er­ally, our 40th an­niver­sary is­sue.

Sabrina threw her­self into the moves, swing­ing from ropes, jump­ing over bars, dip­ping and per­form­ing all sorts of con­tor­tions for the cam­era like a nat­u­ral-born ath­lete. Spoiler alert: she even wishes us a happy birthday in the AR video. Be sure to down­load the free Awethen­tic app from the Ap­ple App Store and scan the cover to catch the full story.

Our cover star loved the looks we chose for her, from So­nia Rykiel and Chris­tian Dior, as well as swimwear by Eres and Vile­bre­quin—all of which looked per­fect on her toned sil­hou­ette. It was a long day—we started at 11am and fin­ished past 10pm—but Sabrina was an ex­tremely good sport through­out the shoot, with en­ergy aplenty and a great sense of laid­back fun. Her hus­band and kids popped by near the end of the day and mar­velled at her strik­ing stances. “You look like Won­der Woman,” said one of her chil­dren. Once Sabrina had left the set, we plugged An­son for fit­ness tips so we could look like Sabrina. One can dream, right?

Watch Sabrina come to life on our first aug­mented re­al­ity cover. Down­load the free Awethen­tic app from the Ap­ple App Store, scan the cover and watch her wish Tatler a happy 40th birthday
