EVENT LA PERLA X AYUMI EXHIBITION OPENING
WHERE LA PERLA FLAGSHIP STORE, CAUSEWAY BAY
HAPPENINGS: Italian luxury lingerie brand La Perla collaborated with J-pop diva Ayumi Hamasaki for a photo exhibition. Styled by Alvin Goh, Hamasaki posed for seven different looks that explore femininity, sexiness and sensuality. The petite beauty was in town earlier to celebrate stylist and friend Goh's birthday. The photos will be auctioned for charity after the exhibition. Hamasaki was joined by a slew of local celebrities at the La Perla exhibition, with the stellar turnout including Anina Ho, Jacqueline Chow, Ana R and Sherry Chen.
OVERHEARD Seeing Ayumi’s La Perla-ready body reminds me that I should really stick to my new year’s resolution.
CHIC CHAT with Alvin Goh
What's your birthday wish?
I want to stay healthy and … make myself a better person.
What was it like working with Ayumi Hamasaki?
We connected the first time we worked together. In fact, she emailed me right away afterwards and told me she hoped to work together more. We are both perfectionists, and we have a lot of chemistry.
You styled seven looks for her. What was the most challenging one?
The teaser shot, for which I wanted her to be topless and blindfolded.
How do you define sexiness?
It's an attitude, energy and vibe.
