See a dif­fer­ent, more stylish side to res­tau­ra­teur Happy Ong­pauco-Tiu as she shares her fash­ion must-haves

In a pre­dom­i­nantly male-dom­i­nated in­dus­try, Happy Ong­pauco-Tiu has staked her claim as one of the best restau­ra­teurs in the coun­try. The sought-af­ter chef, who re­cently gave birth to her fourth child a few months ago, is also known to grace mag­a­zine fea­tures for her per­sonal style and fash­ion choices. Al­ways look­ing crisp and pol­ished with­out a hair out of place, it's dif­fi­cult to en­vi­sion Ong­pauco-Tiu rum­mag­ing around the kitchen just hours be­fore at­tend­ing the events she caters to. Much like her style icons Grace Kelly and Au­drey Hep­burn, she man­ages to put to­gether el­e­gant looks with the least ef­fort. She con­sid­ers her­self a DVF girl, claim­ing the de­signer's wrap-around dresses are life-savers for mums on-the-go. Mark Bum­gar­ner and Rajo Lau­rel num­ber among her favourite lo­cal de­sign­ers.

"My favourite Chris­tian Louboutin pair, such a state­ment piece that jazzes up any out­fit— ca­sual or for­mal"

"This Her­mès Rouge size 25 Birkin is hard to find! I love car­ry­ing it be­cause the colour is such a stand-out"

"My Aude­mars Piguet watch is such a clas­sic that I wear it for any oc­ca­sion and can­not leave home with­out it"

"I use th­ese vin­tagein­spired Gucci sun­glasses in the day­time and some­times in the evenings, too!"

"I love this multi-tasker: an all-in-one blush, foun­da­tion, and high­lighter from Chanel that's per­fect for small purses"

"This is made by a French per­fume master known to have worked for other lux­ury brands. I love its sweet and musky scent"

"I love th­ese two Chanel brooches be­cause they can in­stantly make any sim­ple out­fit so­phis­ti­cated"
