leap of faith

THERE ARE VERY FEW PLACES IN THE world where a rush of excitement and a jolt of energy become palpable the minute you walk down the street. For me, and I suspect many others, nowhere is this best experienced and epitomised than in New York City. French writer and intellectual Simone de Beauvoir once noted that “there is something in the New York air that makes sleep useless”—an apt description of the relentless ambition encapsulated in The City that Never Sleeps. To this day, even with the rapid rise of many cosmopolitan cities on our side of the world, New York retains its distinct allure and continues to capture the imagination of the bold and adventurous. It especially draws the dreamers, who come in droves in hopes of making a mark…

HOW DO WE ROLL DURING a Singapore Tatler shoot in New York City? First, we fly non-stop on Singapore Airlines business class to make sure we arrive fresh and ready to take on the Big Apple. Then, we piled into a bus spilling with Louis Vuitton, Prada, Valentino and Gucci threads, and more shoes than anyone could wear in a month. And there was also a car with two security guards following our van, carrying Bvlgari high jewellery pieces worth more than a million dollars. As the Tatler crew, together with cover stars Brandon and Julien Leo, and Mae Tan, hopped from Brooklyn to different spots all over Manhattan, a fantastic soundtrack was played in the background. The cover trio kept everyone’s spirits energised by playing DJ, lining up the best…

a beautiful cause

BACK IN THE 1970S, SEOW PECK LENG, founding president of the Singapore Women’s Association (SWA), started organising beauty pageants for charity, using it as a platform to encourage women to help the underprivileged and less fortunate. The late politician, educator and advocate for women’s rights may have passed on in 2007, but her legacy—and fervent enthusiasm to push beauty pageantry as a tool for doing good—remains. This is why the annual Miss Singapore International beauty pageant will continue to headline the programme of the 44th SWA Charity Gala Dinner on July 13 at the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Singapore. Winners will be invited to participate in the Miss International and Miss Supranational beauty pageants held later this year in Japan and Poland, respectively. Funds raised will go towards supporting SWA’s beneficiaries, including…

FALLING STAR He may have built a successful eponymous fashion brand from scratch, but this flamboyant designer has rubbed several of his high-profile clients the wrong way with his poor time management skills and lack of after-sales service. What’s worst, they’ve even asked their friends to boycott him altogether. OPEN SECRET A matron going through a bitter divorce didn’t bother to hide her extramarital affair, bringing her new boyfriend to a friend’s dinner party one recent weekend. She later made guests even more uncomfortable when she joked about the other occasions she has cheated on her husband—and vice versa. CLUB ROYALTY The city has a new (party) princess. This Versace-loving lady has been spotted out and about at different nightclubs almost every week, each time surrounded by a different group of beautiful people and splashing…
