Whether she’s in an A-line dress or a sweeping ballgown, Louisa Cheng, previous recipient of the Hong Kong Tatler Most Stylish Woman award in 2002, is always dressed to impress.

Favouring designers like Christian Dior and Giambattista Valli, Cheng admits that she likes to experiment with her style. Still, when it comes to shopping her priorities are clear—she’ll choose a sparkly pair of earrings and a floral dress over pants any day.
