Glitz & Glamour: The Best Watches & Jewellery At #MYTatlerBall2019
The high society elites shone brightly at Malaysia Tatler Ball 2019 - with help from diamonds and other gems
This year, our guests pulled out all the stops to look their most fabulous, accessorising their couture ensembles with statement timepieces, jewellery and even headbands. Here are some of our favourites:
Watches were not just for the gents. One of our best-dressed ladies, Christine Cheah, sported a Franck Muller Long Island in red to match her sweet pink gown. Complementing Dato' Emma Ibrahim's Hollywood glamour look was a chic Aquanaut from Patek Philippe.
Some of the dashing gentlemen like Tan Sri Mohd Ariffin Yusuf and Mah Kok Wah eschewed perennial favourites like Rolex and Audemars Piguet for Chopard and Richard Mille respectively. Bryan Loo also made quite an impression with his playful Bonbon timepiece, Richard Mille's major release of the year.

Tunku Elana Khyra had a vision for her look and it was to emulate Charlize Theron's Evil Queen character from the movie Snow White & The Huntsman, which she did successfully by crowning her look with a custom headband made by a friend. Meanwhile, Sally Quah and Celeste Tee evoked a more angelic vibe with help from their gold-finished metal headbands.
Up To My Neck
Lee Jim Leng never fails to impress us with her fashion sense and she didn't disappoint at the ball, pairing her elegant Marchesa gown with jewellery from Carolina Herrera. Meanwhile, Raisa Sufian looked radiant in white gold and diamond jewellery, which she told us were her family's heirlooms.
