It may have been out of sight, but it was certainly not out of mind. Local media were kept at arm's length for the launch of Emporio Armani's latest fragrance, Night - but a large party was invited to Jewel in Pottinger Street. The dress code, to match the perfume's packaging, was red for women and black for men.
Among the ladies in red were Yvette Yuen, Michelle Cheng, Sheila Chan, Bentley's Jean Ma, actress Cherrie Yin and Agnes Lung from L'Oreal Group. Men in black included Anson Chan, Jonathan Young (son of legislator Howard Young), hairstylist Calvin Chan, and TV host Nelson Cheung. The president of L'Oreal Paris Luxury Products, Gilles Weil, arrived just in time to catch the highlight of the evening - a sexy tango performance.
