In­ter­na­tional phi­lan­thropist Bui Si­mon vis­its Bangkok to sup­port her An­gel Wings Foun­da­tion

Thailand Tatler - - BEHIND THE SCENES -

For this month’s cover shoot we headed to one of Bangkok’s old­est river­side gems, the Man­darin Ori­en­tal Ho­tel, which gra­ciously opened up its grand royal suite to our team and cover girl Bui Si­mon, Thai­land’s sec­ond Miss Uni­verse winner and now ad­vo­cate for ed­u­ca­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties for un­der­priv­i­leged young Thais.

On her ar­rival Bui stuns ev­ery­body with her dash­ing looks. While cover shoots can of­ten take an en­tire day to com­plete, our gra­cious sub­ject is a busy woman with only a few hours to spare. Un­sur­pris­ingly, the for­mer beauty pageant winner, com­pletely at ease in front of the cam­era, ef­fort­lessly nailed each shot with el­e­gance, rock­ing out­fits by San­dro and An­dri­ana Pe­pell com­ple­mented by ex­quis­ite jew­ellery from Gem­peace by Chuchai.

Bui then takes a mo­ment to dis­cuss her life as a mother and a ded­i­cated phi­lan­thropist. Al­though she does not re­side in Bangkok, she is a well-known fig­ure in Thai­land and as the photo shoot comes to an end we dis­cover a mem­ber of the ho­tel’s staff who has been wait­ing pa­tiently the whole time to present Bui with a bou­quet of flow­ers. Tears of joy are shed as the young man greets his idol.
