It was only 7pm on Tuesday but Causeway Bay's Neway CEO Karaoke bar was already full of guests slinging down whisky shots as Johnnie Walker launched its Gold Label Reserve, and all the whisky was on the house.

As an added attraction, Johnnie Walker hired bottle artist Eileen Chan, who created an installation called Golden Pond out of whisky bottles. The sparkly installation will remain on show at the bar until the Lunar New Year.

'I wanted to create something very classy, golden and romantic. I kept the whisky in the bottles to emulate a running stream,' Chan (pictured) said, adding that the bottle is a medium people can relate to. But in the event, attention fell squarely on a string of models - including Ana Rivera, Jocelyn Luko and Ankie Beilke - in sexy golden tube dresses. For Johnnie Walker, these girls were worth their weight in gold.
