EVENT La Prairie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Collection Launch
WHERE Grand Hyatt, Wan Chai


Happenings: The Swiss skincare brand splurged on a lavish luncheon to promote its latest age-defying collection. The venue was decked out to echo the snowy landscape of the Alps, from which the ingredients for the skincare products were harvested. An exclusive menu was designed especially for the occasion. Guests were entertained by a contemporary dance performance and treated to a hand massage to test the products. Dramatic stage designs were also employed to illustrate the preciousness of the skin products and, of course, to welcome Canto-pop diva Karen Mok joining the special occasion. The beauty, now busy touring the globe for her concerts which celebrate her 20 years in show business, took time from her busy schedule to share her beauty tips. We also spotted socialites Qinnie Chen, Lumen Kinoshita, Gretchen Ng and Olivia Lee-Davies turning out to support.


Look at the moving stage, A-list stars line-up and crystal decorations on the table, a lot of work really went into plugging this.


CHIC CHAT with Karen Mok

What’s your beauty routine when it comes to surviving air pollution and a jet-setting lifestyle?
I drink a lot of soup in winter and in dry weather. My dad is great with traditional Chinese soup with lots of herbs in it.

Can you share a soup recipe with us?
Dendrobe is good for protecting my voice.

How was your holiday with your husband in Germany?
It was such a surprising treat.

How do you balance work and family life?
Work is important, but I try to find time to spend with my husband and my family.

What does 2014 mean to you?
I haven’t thought about it yet because the celebration tour continues into 2014.
