Hot Stuff

It was a siz­zling and gum­mily hu­mid day, but Laura Che­ung man­aged to look su­per cool in win­ter coats and chunky knits

Hong Kong Tatler - - Behind The Scenes -

over star Laura Che­ung ar­rived full of en­thu­si­asm on the dot of 10am for our shoot at New World De­vel­op­ment’s new lux­ury res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ment at Clear Wa­ter Bay. We headed straight into one of Mount Pav­ilia’s soon-to-open du­plex apart­ments for hair and make-up, af­ter which Laura changed into the first of many out­fits from Chanel’s fall/win­ter col­lec­tion—a heroic mis­sion, as it was one of the hottest, stick­i­est days of the dy­ing sum­mer. With slicked-back hair and a broody lip, Laura looked re­mark­ably fierce but also ex­tremely re­laxed. “I feel like my­self,” she said. “I love an edgy look.”

From struc­tured bouclé grey jack­ets to Chanel’s sig­na­ture tweeds in black, navy and grey, Laura wore a pre­dom­i­nantly monochro­matic pal­ette, spiced up here and there by the brand’s space-in­spired cre­ations for the sea­son: sil­ver shear­ling coats, glit­tery boots, chic se­quins. These fu­tur­is­tic el­e­ments worked per­fectly against the sharp, all-white de­sign of the Chi Art Space at Mount Pav­ilia, where pho­tog­ra­pher Kwan­nam Chu cap­tured most of the im­ages.

Laura was ex­tremely flex­i­ble through­out, han­dling all the changes of clothes and our in­struc­tions for adopt­ing dif­fer­ent poses, along with run­ning up and down from the gallery to the roof for ex­tra shots. She kept our spir­its high, too, telling jokes, play­ing with the cam­era, and never once com­plain­ing about the heat.

At 6 o’clock, once we wrapped things up, she ran to change back into her breezy clothes and flats. “I’m at­tend­ing a din­ner for my grand­fa­ther tonight, I have to dash,” she said. “I can’t be late for my grandpa.” And she was off.
