This year's Tatler Ball was a celebration of Asia's Most Influential, and these were the best dressed guests of the night

After a two-year hiatus, the Tatler Ball came back with a bang to celebrate Asia's Most Influential people, who devised looks within the theme of the night, Creative Glamour, in contrast with the industrial beauty of the venue, the M+ Museum. Guests arrived in style at the newly opened space, showcasing looks from elegant black tie to bolder statements.

After guests enjoyed cocktails on the terrace against the lights of Hong Kong, they headed inside for dinner and performances, as the innovative lighting design transformed from peacock blue to a deep red, illuminating everyone’s ensembles.
These are the best dressed men and women of the night, in no particular order:

1/ Peter Cheung

Peter Cheung wore an incredible Dries Van Noten jacket for the evening. A shimmering vision of silver tinsel, he brought a celebratory energy to the night, and completed the look with Versace trousers and Giuseppe Zanotti boots.
