Hot House BLOOMS

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Flash! -

Guests were pre­sented a Bul­gari Om­nia Crys­talline fra­grance Natasha Kraal, Lynette Ow, and Teh Chai Peng “Jew­ellery is more in­ti­mate than any­thing else,” Carla BruniSarkozy, for­mer first lady of France and face of Bul­gari’s new jew­ellery col­lec­tion, Diva, says. “Phys­i­cally in­ti­mate as it adorns the body, of­ten close to where the heart is beat­ing. But more in­ti­mate for its sig­nif­i­cance in the world of feel­ings; it touches mat­ters of the soul and al­ways has a story to tell.”

With that, amid the vi­brant blos­soms of The Orchid Con­ser­va­tory at The Ma­jes­tic Ho­tel, Kuala Lumpur, BAZAAR and Bul­gari co-hosted an in­ti­mate Power Lunch to pre­view the Diva Col­lec­tion, where the vi­brant jew­ellery and lush croc­o­dile bags ra­di­ated so­phis­ti­ca­tion of a higher calling.

Fa­mil­iar faces in at­ten­dance in­cluded BAZAAR stylish women An­gela Karto, Datin Es­mila Saruji, Nora Khalid, Lynette Ow, and Kim Ray­mond, all of whom brought their trade­mark piz­zazz to the event.

Join­ing the ladies for the af­ter­noon were Bul­gari se­nior com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager, Fiona Manini, who in­tro­duced two key looks from the new col­lec­tion. The first was an or­nate flo­ral set that bril­liantly high­lighted the leg­endary her­itage of the brand. The sec­ond was a most stun­ning set glo­ri­ously en­crusted with coloured pre­cious stones, Bul­gari’s sig­na­ture rain­bow of deca­dence. Adding even more light and sparkle to the sunny day, it was easy to imag­ine both looks on ac­tresses the likes of El­iz­a­beth Tay­lor, Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe, Sophia Loren, and Ava Gard­ner.

Just be­fore they took a closer look at the mag­nif­i­cent pieces, guests feasted on suc­cu­lent prime An­gus rib with York­shire pud­ding and roast At­lantic cod, with English tri­fle and petit fours for dessert. Ul­ti­mately, of course, Om­nia Crys­talline fra­grances made for the per­fect end­ing to this jewel-toned Fri­day af­ter­noon.
