Forget shopping, this model's at work

Model-about-town Lisa Selesner has finally tied the knot with actor Daniel Wu Yin-cho but, as a modern couple, the pair are maintaining separate finances. Which may explain the wistful expression on Selesner's face as she showed off a diamond ring costing more than HK$1 million at Chanel's launch of its 18 Vendome jewellery collection. 'The biggest rock Daniel ever gave me was my engagement ring,' she said.

Chanel transformed one floor in a Wan Chai commercial building into a lavish showcase for fine jewellery, worth more than HK$200 million.

The French fashion house also used acrylic fragrance stoppers to create a miniature of the Place Vendome in Paris where founder Coco Chanel had often wandered when in need of inspiration.

A number of tai-tais left the private sale laden with bags of couture jewellery while the model went home empty-handed. That's not to say Selesner was disappointed with her lot: Wu recently presented her with a new car.

However, Selesner has dismissed speculation the gift was a treat for her as a mother-to-be. 'No. When I have the good news you'll know, because I'll probably be sick for two months. My mum got sick when she was pregnant, she vomited all the time.'
