Jessica magazine celebrated its 7th anniversary with its Most Successful Women awards ceremony at the JW Marriott Hotel on Tuesday night. As arbitrary as these prizes tend to be, the kudos is still nice, which is why Dodo Cheng Yu-ling blinged up to join nine other recipients in the seventh year of the awards. Her white dress, sparkling with Swarovski crystals, apparently was worth more than HK$100,000.

'Tonight's awardees are all elite women. I am very glad to be one of them,' said Cheng (right). 'My greatest contribution is to help Hongkongers - who are always very stressed - to relax when they watch TV.'

What Cheng liked best about the prize, which resembled a photo frame picture of the winner, was that it wasn't like a normal trophy. 'This is extremely nice. Sometimes you have to find space for an award, but this is perfectly fine anywhere.'

Joyce Group's managing director Adrienne Ma and former mainland Olympic gymnast Sang Lan, who broke her spine nine years ago, also won.
