The fun-loving side of eight Hong Kong female celebrities and socialites came to the fore at the launch of TAG Heuer's first watch for women, the Alter Ego.

The Swiss watch company organised a weekend of partying and pampering at the Banyan Tree resort in Phuket where the women were flown to indulge themselves.

The idea for the launch was inspired by the watch's name, which suggests there are two sides to every woman.

Actresses Cecilia Yip, Christine Ng Wing-mei and Josie Ho Chiu-yee, film producer and talk show host Cystal Kwok Kam-yan, music promoter Siu Mei and socialites Deirdre Fu, Jacqueline Liu and Rebecca Chow all partied into the wee hours.
