STEPHANIE TI MAY LING, 31, WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Your personal style? Vivacious pretty much sums it up. Orson Welles once said, “Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.” A perennial icon? My mother. I remember watching her dress while I frolicked in her pearls, danced in her high heels, and played with her Elizabeth Arden lipsticks. How has your style changed in the last 10 years? I was a lot more laidback then. I loved the beach, and was friends with surfers who lived in torn jeans, loose shirts, and bikinis. Later, I fell in love with structured blazers, tailored dresses, and knee-length skirts. These days, it’s dresses by Alannah Hill, Cue, and Review, paired with a pink or yellow blazer. What will you never part with? My Elie by Elie Saab wedding gown. It’s fantasy and seduction in a single dress. Your favourite gold piece? An Hermès Collier de Chien cuff in black leather and gold hardware my husband bought for me in Paris this year, and a pair of black patent Ferragamo pumps with metal gold ribbons. Style is … a celebration of life.
