Former Miss Hong Kong contestant Carrie Lam Lei and Japanese beauty Linah Matsuoka were the toast of Monday's press event for the forthcoming Lan Kwai Fong Beer Festival.

The models topped up a few jars at the food and drinks stall outside the Cavern bar, but there seemed more 'phwoar' than pour as guests sweltered in the midday sun. Matsuoka sported a red bikini top for drooling drinkers; Lam covered up with a jacket and discussed her photo book due out this summer.

'I tried different [modelling] styles [in my photo book]. Some of them [were] very artsy,' she said.

Lam didn't seem upset about being banned from signing sessions at this year's Book Fair. 'There are plenty of alternative [venues],' she said. Perhaps she might take one of the festival's 60 booths on July 17-18.
