After attending the Timeless Portofino Exhibit earlier in the day, I was in for an even more glamorous evening at the Grand Hyatt Hotel with my friend Laureen. We were both invited to IWC’s Gala Dinner starring Cate Blanchette and guests of honor Peter Lindbergh, Zhou Xun and Karolina Kurkova. It was definitely a star-studded event with not only IWC’s Friends of the Brand present but also Hong Kong’s who’s who. Needless to say, we had to dress to impress. Thank God for my fairy godmother, Maureen Disini, who graciously allowed me to wear her beautiful embellished number. I didn’t have time to make my own gown prior to leaving for Hong Kong so if not for her, I would’ve been screwed. Just a day before my flight, I went to her shop, tried the dress on and voila! Problem solved. It fit me like a glove! The dress was such a hit I was even included in Hong Kong’s Lifestyle Asia 10 Best Dressed of the night. It was the perfect end to an already magical evening full of scrumptious food, delectable wine, great conversation and topnotch entertainment. I definitely went to bed with a huge smile on my face. This day was a good day!
