Style and Sub­stance

Emily Lam-ho’s pro­fes­sion­al­ism, pos­i­tiv­ity and pen­chant for Chanel were all on dis­play for our Novem­ber cover shoot

Hong Kong Tatler - - Behind The Scenes -

’m never tak­ing this off,” says Emily Lam-ho about one of the dresses from Chanel’s FW18 col­lec­tion that she wore for this month’s cover shoot. She was equally en­am­oured of the ac­com­pa­ny­ing high jew­ellery from Chanel. While she had viewed many of the pieces dur­ing Cou­ture Week in July, there were some that she hadn’t seen close up, let alone had the op­por­tu­nity to wear.

The day of the shoot brought beau­ti­ful weather, and Cobo House, the shoot lo­ca­tion, was flooded with nat­u­ral light. Emily had ar­rived fresh-faced with her three-year-old son in tow; he was de­lighted to be on set with his mum, whose pro­fes­sion­al­ism and flaw­less look re­sulted in pic­tures re­quir­ing very lit­tle re­touch­ing. As hum­ble as ever, Emily cred­ited that to the skills of pho­tog­ra­pher Kwan­nam Chu.

When the shoot wrapped Emily popped a bot­tle of Dom Pérignon to cel­e­brate with the team, stat­ing that cham­pagne was her weak­ness. Chanel may prove to be an­other weak­ness—aside from that dress, Emily had her eye on a pair of the mai­son’s metal­lic­gold thigh-high boots bor­rowed for the shoot. Her on­go­ing quest to em­power women is al­ways ap­proached in style.

Turn to p.150 for the cover story. Emily wears a Hori­zon Loin­tain neck­lace, which took 1,400 hours of pro­duc­tion to com­plete, in­clud­ing 350 hours on gem set­ting alone
