Asia's Most Wanted: Hong Kong's Most Eligible Ladies
August 15, 2017 | BY Hong Kong Tatler
Editors of the Asia Tatler titles scoured the region to find them—the sort of jet-setting, merger-making, brainy beauties that any man (or woman) would fawn over. But between managing funds and running hotels, restaurants and fashion empires, as well as being philanthropists and politicians, these high-flying singletons barely touch the ground. They are undoubtedly the most swipe-right of city slickers, stars and socialites, but the question is: can anyone pin them down?
See Asia's Most Wanted by country:
The daughter of billionaire tycoon Peter Lam and actress-turned-socialite Lynn Hsieh has an addictive mix of beauty, affluence and charm. Add to that the fact she’s a fabulous clothes horse and it’s no surprise her Instagram following is 117,000. She’s an influencer on the rise, with brands clamouring to dress her.
CAVEAT: You’d better be comfortable playing “Instagram husband” now and then.
She’s chairwoman of the Hong Kong Art School, a board member of the Hong Kong Arts Centre, the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, the Asia Youth Orchestra and the Wu Yee Sun College at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
PERKS: Free stays at Dorsett properties in Asia and London.
PSST: As a former spokeswoman for Japanese beauty brand SK-II, she’s got flawless skin.
NATURAL HABITAT: Underwater. She loves scuba diving.
As half of the creative duo behind digital agency Indicube, Antonia works on websites and branding for everyone from Estée Lauder to Mr Porter, leaving a trail of digital cool in her wake. The fashion fan and avid watch collector has also starred in social media campaigns for Tod’s, Hogan, Roger Vivier and Fendi.
PSST: She’s big into kickboxing, so best stay in her good books.
Antonia Da Cruz
The daughter of prominent jockey-turned-trainer Tony Cruz quit her job in stockbroking to take up the mantle as general manager of fitness membership start-up GuavaPass in Hong Kong. She’s quick-witted, toned and loves to travel. Place your bets.
PERKS: VIP treatment at the racecourse and all the free fitness classes you can handle.
The daughter of Reyna and Mahesh Harilela grew up in the famous Harilela Mansion before studying at Pepperdine University in LA. She’s now a freelance stylist in Hong Kong.
LIKES: Dogs. A lot. Be prepared to live with a rescue dog or 10.
The granddaughter of the late tycoon and philanthropist Li Po-chun is a staunch supporter of the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, which offers scholarships to underprivileged students.
ALTER EGO: By day she runs her family’s real estate biz, by night she’s a super social fashionista.
Poman is vice-chairwoman and managing director of Regal Hotels International, and vice-chairwoman of Century City International Holdings. Super smart, she was only 19 when she graduated summa cum laude with a BA in psychology from Duke University.
THAT’S NOT ALL: She’s also the founder and CEO of Century Innovative Technology (creator of animated series Bodhi and Friends).
LOVES: Dogs of all shapes and sizes—she’s got a houseful.
