Reports from last week's Prada bash were that the venue was fabulous but so big it was almost impossible to spot the hostess, Miuccia Prada.

The visit of the Prada heiress to Hong Kong was low-key, with few social engagements.

She tried to escape the limelight in Macau at dinner with a close friend, Manuela Pavesi, ex-editor of Italian Vogue magazine at the Littoral Portuguese restaurant.

But she was spotted by one of the most popular fashion gurus in Hong Kong. What were the chances that Metro Radio boss Kam Kwok-leung and Alexander Wong (animator of the Jidou cartoon) would be sitting a few seats away?

Wong reports that 'Miuccia is very shy, as usual, but was willing to let us take a few snapshots'.
