Few women manage to look elegant as effortlessly as Grace Kelly did, so there's perhaps no better compliment than wanting to become her.

A handful of local stars channelled Kelly last Thursday to promote Montblanc's new collection, dedicated to the beloved late princess of Monaco and Hollywood legend.

Heading the line-up was singer-actress Vivian Chow Wai-man. The beauty, together with models Carrie Lam Lei and Marie Zhuge Ziqi, showcased the collection of limited-edition high jewellery, stationery and watches. They each took a leaf out of Kelly's classic look book to mimic her make-up, hair, outfits and smile.

While the multimillion-dollar diamonds might sound the perfect Christmas gift to melt a girl's heart, Chow's husband Joe Nieh Chun has gone one step farther.

'I haven't got around to Christmas shopping, but Joe has already given me a great gift,' she said. 'My mum tossed away a teddy bear that I grew up with earlier, but Joe spent a lot of time finding me a similar one, and it was wearing a jacket that really looked as if it was from Joe's wardrobe. I'm really moved by the effort he put into it.'
