September 12, 2018 | BY Hong Kong Tatler

There's no question that Hong Kong is home to some serious fashion icons, and every year at the Hong Kong Tatler Ball, we celebrate style with the "Most Stylish Woman" award. With the ball just around the corner, we look back and the fashionistas who earned this title over the last decade:

Adrienne Hui, 2017 

Named "Most Stylish Woman" at last year's Tatler Ball—where she wore a stunning macramé lace dress by Versace—former private banker Adrienne Hui loves to mix high/low brands (don't be surprised to see her pairing a James Perse top, ASOS leggings with a Chanel robe and Hermès handbag).

“I don’t follow trends,” says Adrienne, who showed us her collection of exotic skin handbags in our "Hong Kong's Most Fabulous Wardrobes" series. “I just work my outfits around my personality and my figure. I know what I like and what I look good in. It’s all about how I feel. It has to be me.”

Valerie Chow, 2016 

The former actress and model, whose role in Wong Kar-wai’s acclaimed Chungking Express earned her a nomination for Best Supporting Actress at the Hong Kong Film Awards in 1995, is now fully dedicated to fashion as the chief marketing and communications lead at Pedder Group.

In an interview with Valerie where we asked what style meant to her, she responded, "You can emote something about your personality through the way you dress. It’s a means, a conduit of expression. Every woman has style."

Claudia Shaw, 2015 

Claudia Shaw is the buyer and regional style adviser at Chanel in the Asia-Pacific region, so you just know that she has a wardrobe to die for. In fact, we couldn't resist asking her to give us a sneak peek in our "Hong Kong's Most Fabulous Wardrobes" series. 

“I would define my style as timeless and classic, but not dated—so I would call it contemporary classic. It’s simple and sophisticated, but I enjoy dressing according to paradoxes, whether that’s masculine versus feminine or mixing high and low fashion.”

Dee Poon, 2010

Dee Poon, the managing director and chief brand officer of PYE, is a woman who has her priorities straight. When she received the award for "Most Stylish Woman" at the 2010 Hong Kong Tatler Ball, she began her speech with, "Sorry, I didn't have time to write a speech, as I spent all my time finding a dress."

Eight years on, she's as inspiring and witty as ever as the cover star of Hong Kong Tatler's September 2018 issue.
