Cover star Airyn Tanu shares the same quiet strength as the stones she loves. The founder and creative mind behind Passion Jewelry talks about the different facets of the diamond business and how she strives for excellence in every endeavour. Corporate consultant Fariza Sakina and businesswoman Chrystal Tan grace the cover.

On the cover is beauty icon Estée Lauder’s granddaughter, Aerin Lauder, the founder and creative director of her own lifestyle line, Aerin. Having just launched her brand in Mainland China, she shares her thoughts on continuing her grandmother’s legacy. Billionaire philanthropists Yuri and Julia Milner talk about the search for life in the cosmos, while recipients of Singapore…

design for life

This year’s Asia’s Most Stylish cover story is all about curves and angles—and I’m not just talking about the eight fashionistas who jetted into Macau to star in our epic three-day shoot. With its kaleidoscope of geometric shapes, flowing futuristic interiors and soaring 35-metre high atrium, our venue, the Zaha Hadid-designed Morpheus hotel, proved an architectural supermodel in its own right. Our Most Stylish award recipients—one from each of Tatler’s eight Asian titles—were excited to pose against its dramatic arches and bold textured walls, taking as many selfies as our photographer, Joel Lim, did shots. “It’s not often you have to compete against your shoot location,” joked Fanny Tsai, our Most Stylish Woman from Taiwan, “but these interiors are really attention-grabbing. I’m going to have to up my game.” For our…

“Nobody move,” booms photographer Joel Lim’s voice in Art on 23, an exhibition space containing Morpheus Macau’s remarkable collection of contemporary art. “Let me just take a test shot, then you guys can do touch-ups.” He is addressing what looks to be 50 or more people on the set—lighting assistants, security guards, editors, but mostly hair and make-up stylists hovering with brushes and combs at the ready to tend to their charges. They suddenly move obediently to stand, albeit restlessly, out of sight of the lens, like horses before a race. As Joel instructs each woman on how to position herself on the winding bench, a giant Kaws sculpture looms just out of frame. The subjects work hard to hold their poses elegantly, smiling despite the uncomfortable positions. Then Joel’s camera…

Yoghurt, asparagus, broccoli, almond milk, vegetarian sausages and arugula. Who has had the greatest influence in your life? My parents.

Attend, say hi, have one drink and then leave without being spotted. What’s…

run for a cause

The Tung Wah Group of Hospitals Charity Challenge Race is expected to surpass last year’s tally of 1,000 participants when it kicks off on Lung Wo Road, Central, on January 27. This year’s event, chaired by Philip Ma and sponsored by LGT Private Banking, has three categories—the Individual Challenge Race, the Team Challenge Race (for teams of three or four colleagues, friends or relatives), and a new category, the Hero Race. Those who dress up to run the 2,500-metre course, which includes obstacles for participants to hurdle, will be in the running to win the Best Costume Award. Virtual reality and other game booths will be on hand for post-race entertainment. All funds raised will go to the TWGHs Development Fund of Kwong Wah Hospital Redevelopment Project. www.tungwah.org.hk…

marking a milestone

The Community Chest’s flagship and longest-running fundraiser, the Walk for Millions, celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. In the past, the event has been divided into two walks, in the New Territories and Kowloon or Hong Kong Island. But the organising committee, chaired by 500 Lister Wilson Pong, has decided the 50th Anniversary Walk for Millions, to take place on January 6, will be a single walk along the new Central-Wan Chai Bypass. Participants join in teams and raise funds for the Community Chest by inviting friends and family to sponsor their walks. Last year’s event drew more than 170,000 walkers and raised HK$36 million for the Community Chest’s family and child welfare services. commchest.org…
