Sky-high venue for society crowd to celebrate Japanese beauty brand's anniversary bash
The newly opened sky100 observation deck on the 100th floor of the International Commerce Centre in Tsim Sha Tsui opened its doors for a VIP gala dinner last Friday to celebrate Japanese beauty brand Cle de Peau Beaute's 10th anniversary in Hong Kong.
The crowd wasn't the venue's usual touristy pack but rather well-heeled tai-tais and society people like Christina Lee, Pansy Ho Chiu-king, Catherine Kwai and Olivia Lee-Davies. Newly-wed model Amanda Strang, just back from Italy, also showed up rocking an open-back Prada number.
The brand's first Asian ambassador, mainland actress Zhou Xun, was flown in to make a personal appearance at the event.
The petite beauty was all sweet talk about the brand at a ceremony before the gala dinner and received a bouquet showing a dozen of the brand's signature face creams.
Zhou spent more time doing press interviews than mingling with guests - but many of them were far too busy catching up with old friends to be star-struck by the mainland actress.
A three-course dinner catered by the Mandarin Oriental finished up with a surprise dessert specially made for the event - a logo-emblazoned chocolate dome with silver glaze.
The crowd thinned out around 11pm with some of the guests leaving to catch other happenings on the Island side.
