The Anniversary Issue features three impressive entrepreneurs on the cover: Marlienna Suwito, the mastermind behind 7 Stars health drinks, actor and producer Yoshi Sudarso, and Vanessa Ong, CEO and co-founder of Jamu Jamu Co. The multifaceted Dian Lee is not only a businesswoman, daughter, wife, mother and certified yogini, she’s also an advocate of unity in a new Malaysia. We trace her evolution from an impulsive youngster to Malaysia Tatler’s Most Stylish Woman. Taking a cue from its cover star, Tourism Secretary Berna Romulo-Puyat, an advocate of the slow food movement and ethnic couture, this issue features shapers of the culinary scene in the same breath as initiatives to revive the local fashion industry.

cool yule

Tis the season to be stylish—fa la la la la, la la la la. And who better to help set the festive fashion agenda than 15 of China’s top models. Under the sartorial guidance of our fashion director-at-large, Justine Lee, and fashion editor, Rosana Lai, these catwalk superstars rocked new season designs in our alternative Christmas fashion shoot, The Big Easy. “Style isn’t always about glitz and glamour,” Justine told me as she prepared for her biggest shoot of the year. “During the Christmas party season, it’s easy to get a little carried away with the sequins and sparkle, but I’m a big believer that less is more.” Turn to page 88 to check out Justine’s showcase of unexpected holiday style modelled by Hao Ru, He Jing, Jia Li, Gong, Ni…

through her eyes

The crew bustles around Chen Man’s studio on a particularly chilly Beijing evening. The space resembles something out of Star Trek, with fingerprint-activated doors and a Zen garden in a central courtyard that’s automatically engulfed in fog every hour to hydrate the plants. This is the office of one of China’s most sought-after photographers, a woman who has had a hand in the most high-profile fashion campaigns shot in the country and who has sometimes even been asked to photograph herself for magazine covers. This time, though, she’s posing for fellow fashion photographer Trunk Xu, a close friend and one of the few she trusts to shoot her portrait other than herself. “For me, being behind the camera or in front of the camera is just a matter of position—there’s not…


OLIVIER YOAN The French photographer shoots some of Mainland China’s most in-demand models showcasing the season’s less-is-more designs in The Big Easy (p.88) What’s your worst habit? Going back to sleep after the alarm clock has rung. What was the last lie you told? I never lie. There’s my latest lie. What’s your happiest memory? I think it was swimming and cuddling with a baby elephant in a river in Thailand. What’s your signature dance move? There are a lot, but mostly I do a weird twist with my hands and shake my head like a chicken. What’s your biggest fear? The loss of biodiversity. PAUL KAY The Hong Kong-based writer meets the founders of Wonderfruit, Asia’s hippest music festival, in World of Wonder (p.168) If you could attend any concert from the past, what would it be? Queen at Wembley in 1986. Stadium rock…

The Lyric Theatre will be transformed into a “big top” for the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts Ball, which has designated “circus” as its theme this year. More than 400 guests will enjoy an evening of fine dining and show-stopping performances by students from the academy’s dance and drama schools, including arrangements of Send in the Clowns, Vesti La Giubba, Entrance of the Gladiators and, of course, The Greatest Showman. Later, Jasmine Yen, daughter of Donnie Yen, and mainland actress and singer Tan Jing will take to the stage for the celebrity performances.
