Parisian fashion brand Leonard invited singers Kary Ng Yu-fei and Josie Ho Chiu-yee to guest-model its autumn-winter collection at the Island Tang restaurant in Central.

Despite not being a professional model, Ng breezed down the runway with her own rock 'n' roll rhythm on Friday. She wore a body-hugging, armour-like dress with fur trim on her shoulders.

Ho, however, did not look her usual self on the runway. Her catwalk could have used a bit more practice, but she mastered the look of a model.

The daughter of casino mogul Stanley Ho Hung-sun said she felt even more rock and roll in the gold and black tube dress, paired with fishnet stockings and strappy sandals.

The collection - the first and last created for Leonard by design wunderkind Maxime Simo?ns - features Asian aesthetics. For instance, cheongsam silhouettes, Mao collars and Japanese prints.

The presentation and luncheon began fashionably late by an hour. The crowd started to thin before dessert was served, as many went to gawk at Abercrombie and Fitch's male models at the Pedder Building a few blocks away.
