In the limelight
with Robin Kwong and Judy Ngao
For the rugby teams, the good, the bad and the ugly were all decided on the field. How good were the corporate boxes? Here's SevenSeen's Report Card.
The Best Party Box: CLSA. If the corporate boxes were a college dorm the CLSA box would be the party suite. It was loud and sweaty inside, but the throng of people milling in and near the box had no complaints. Most original theme: Citigroup, with the Citi of Zorro. Can't go wrong with beach parties, and jungle themes are always a good stand-by. But nothing's quite like basing your box decoration around an Antonio Banderas movie role with a silly black mask and a swirling cape.
Most Historically Significant: The ABN-Amro bank used its 100-year anniversary as its theme for their box, which was decorated with retro pictures from those early days. The Dutch institution came here in 1906 as the Netherlands Trading Society.
