Not only does the Hong Kong Tatler Ball mark the start of the annual social calendar of black-tie galas and formals, its cocktail reception is the perfect opportunity for the city’s elite to dress to impress. Among those we spotted stepping off the red carpet into the foyer of the Grand Hyatt’s Grand Ballroom were Bonnae Gokson wearing an open-back sequined tulle gown by Dundas and Anne Wang-Lui in Roland Mouret.

Sipping on champagne and The Macallan single malt whisky from the bespoke The Macallan bar, the guests surveyed the crowd in search of the most elegant evening gowns. Ming Ho-Tang wore an exquisite design by Oscar de la Renta and dazzled in a necklace by Chopard. We also spotted Michelle Ma-Chan in Christian Dior Haute Couture and Eleanor Lam making her way to the interactive video booth with Jonathan Cheung.
