Tatler Throwback: Gems From The ’80s


March 15, 2017 | BY Kimberly Hu

Brought to you by our 40th anniversary this year

Having been the city's leading authority on luxury lifestyle for the past four decades, it's safe to say we've seen our fair share of glitzy parties and glamorous personalities. For our 40th anniversary year, we celebrate by sifting through our archives to see what high society looked like all those years ago.

As we count down to our special anniversary issue in September 2017, we'll be taking you back to a different decade every month. For March, we're bringing you flashbacks from the ’80s—look out for some recognisable Tatler faces who you can still spot gracing our pages today.
