Ge­or­gia Lee


Philippine Tatler - - FEATURES -

She’s one of Sin­ga­pore’s top doc­tors, a skin­care spe­cial­ist, and a CEO. If those aren't enough to make Ge­or­gia Lee a cover star in her home­town, her bold fash­ion sense cer­tainly is. “I’m very open to quirky sil­hou­ettes. At the mo­ment I like McQueen a lot, and also Prada and The Row by the Olsen twins. My clothes might be wild but I’m very or­gan­ised in my wardrobe. Ev­ery­thing is cat­e­gorised ac­cord­ing to colour and length, and in al­pha­bet­i­cal or­der.”

While med­i­cal pro­fes­sion­als are some of the most ad­mired peo­ple in so­ci­ety, they are not gen­er­ally known for their fash­ion sense, some­thing Ge­or­gia wants to change. “I’m a con­form­ist in terms of the med­i­cal prac­tice, but never about how I carry my­self. I think what’s im­por­tant is in the essence of a per­son,” she says. “We shouldn’t ex­pect doc­tors to dress in a cer­tain way. I al­ways tell my young pa­tients: ‘Don’t be afraid to be dif­fer­ent, and let your work speak for it­self.’”

Her top tips for work­ing women want­ing to look good? “A great stylist can help open your eyes to new styles and bolder looks that you might never have pre­vi­ously con­sid­ered and help you see your­self in a new light. Don’t play safe. Let some­one dis­rupt your fash­ion nor­mal­ity—you might be pleas­antly sur­prised.”

Ge­or­gia is also a self-con­fessed sneaker ad­dict. “My col­lec­tion is get­ting big­ger and big­ger, I’m to­tally ob­sessed. I’ve been buy­ing a lot of Vir­gil Abloh’s Off-White col­lec­tion. I like dif­fi­cult-to-ac­quire pieces. If it’s too easy, I’m not in­ter­ested!”
