In a city that loves lists, the '10 best-dressed personalities' stands out. Anyone worth his or her Prada hopes to be on the list, which provides a validation of their personal style by experts in the fashion world. So who are the 10 best-dressed personalities - the top five women and top five men - this year? The women: 1. Michelle Reis (actress) 2. Karen Mok (pop singer/actress) 3. Loletta Fok (socialite) 4. Cecilia Yip (actress) 5. Nancy Lin (company executive) And the men: 1. Simon Yam (actor) 2. Louis Ku (actor) 3. Ricky Kwok (hair stylist) 4. Kam Kwok-leung (actor/producer) 5. Kasey Lin (advertising executive) The winners received their awards last Friday at the Hong Kong Fashion Designers' Association (HKFDA) annual fashion show, which was held at the Atrium in the Landmark. According to association vice-chairman and event director Rowena U, the list is decided by a process of elimination. 'All the members of the HKFDA come up with 10 names each and we also invite the previous year's winner to nominate 10 people. 'We usually have around 90 names and this is narrowed down to 30 and from there we choose 10.' Rowena says she prefers to look for people who have their own individual style rather than those dressed top to toe by a single designer or whose clothes are picked out by a stylist. 'They don't have to be a star but they must be well-known to the public . . . what's the point in being well-dressed when no one knows who you are?' And has she ever been offered a bribe by anyone desperate to make the list over the past 12 years? 'Never . . . people drop subtle hints but no one has ever been so bold. They would be silly to do that.'
