We can't decide whether Cartier was trying to blind us with its luxurious two-night party or the constellation of celebrity guests the French jewellery house booked to celebrate the opening of its flagship store in the Prince's Building at the weekend. Whatever the agenda, Cartier did a good job of generating the week's biggest buzz. Well, it's hard not to give the brand credit. It made the effort to build a giant red jewellery box - a temporary party venue - at Outlying Islands Pier Four to host its guests. Cartier's dinner party on Friday had guests including veteran actor Tony Leung Chiu-wai and Fan Bingbing, the newly crowned best actress of the Tokyo International Film Festival. Fan (pictured) looked dazzling in diamond jewellery worth about HK$40 million sponsored by Cartier. But if she wants to take the glittering baubles home, she'll still need to pay. 'I know they won't give me a discount. I'll have to star in more films to afford these beauties. Maybe Cartier will consider paying me more,' Fan said with a laugh. Taiwanese Golden Horse Award-winning actor Ethan Ruan and actress Sandrine Pinna were seen walking the red carpet and mingling at Saturday's party. Guests sipped champagne from cuvee Cartier, nibbled on wagyu canapes and were entertained by performers including British singer-songwriter Vanessa Brown and Parisian DJ Beatrice Ardisson. The 'wow' moment really came when a couple of models, overloaded with Cartier shopping bags carefully walked a fine wire set up above the stage, followed by a little army of diamond-wearing beauties sashaying down the runway. Seriously, how can you have a blast without tightrope walking and woo the girls without flashing those precious rocks?
