Kicking off ball season, the Hong Kong Tatler Ball returns on Saturday, September 15, 2018 at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong. From a star-studded guest list to designer gowns and jewellery on the red carpet, here's what you can expect from Hong Kong's biggest society event of the year:

An exclusive guest list

Over 350 guests have already RSVP'ed for this year's Hong Kong Tatler Ball, many of whom are from the esteemed Tatler 500 list. If you can't make it, don't worry—we'll be covering it live all night long on social media (@hongkongtatler).

Intergalactic theme

This year's theme is 'Science. Space. The Future.' so be sure to dress the part. Besides the cosmic, other-worldly decor, we'll also have a very special guest attending this year with major tech ties.

Live feed from the red carpet

From 7pm onwards, we'll be reporting live from the Hong Kong Tatler Ball red carpet as our fashion director, Justine Lee, chats with guests as they arrive.

Be sure to tune in on Facebook (@hongkongtatler) on the night, and watch last year's live feed and our best-dressed men and women for some serious style inspiration.

Interactive video booth

What's better than a photo booth? A video booth, surely. Open during the cocktail reception, don't enter the ballroom without having your limited edition video made—it's definitely going to be Instagram-worthy.

Futuristic food and drink

Prepare to feast like never before at the Hong Kong Tatler Ball. This year's menu offers an innovative new twist—plant-based dining—to represent the future of food. Don't worry, normal protein options will still be available but we're told more than half the guest list has already opted to go plant-based.

In terms of drinks, The Macallan will be flowing throughout the night, so rest assured that all glasses will be topped up throughout the evening.

Glittering awards ceremony

This year, we'll be handing out awards in four categories: Most Promising Young Lady, Most Stylish Woman, Diamond and Global Unity—a first for Hong Kong Tatler. Be sure to keep an eye on @hongkongtatler to find out who the awardees are and to hear what they have to say in their acceptance speeches.

Special performances

As usual, we've invited some of Asia's top performers to kick off the after-party at the Hong Kong Tatler Ball. Taking the stage right after dinner and the awards ceremony, prepare to get on your feet and hit the dance floor.
