There’s no doubt that Hong Kong is one very stylish city — just take a quick glance around on the street and you’ll see more dapper gentlemen and perfectly put-together fashionistas than you can count. And of course, Hongkongers dress to the nines for the many parties and social functions that fill our diaries every month, catching the spotlight with their one-of-a-kind fashions. That’s why, every month, we select the most stylish ladies and gents in town. Click ahead to find out who made our Best Dressed list for October.

It’s been awhile since Karena Lam has made an appearance at an event in formal wear. Known for her sweet and intelligent demeanour, Lam did a fabulous job to surprise us here with a low-cut black dress in satin, complemented perfectly by burgundy lips and the latest jewellery pieces from Chaumet.
Monotone is definitely one of the key trends of the season and even fashion skeptics can easily rock an all-black look. Ivan Lui gives his all-black attire extra dimension by adding various textures including leather and silk to give off a distinct contemporary edge.
When it comes to logos or monograms, a repeated or played-out pattern can easily turn boring. Not so on Taiwanese diva Jolin Tsai, who chose a tri-coloured hooded jacket with fringes to match with a bra top and leggings in logos, adding movement and energy to her sporty attire. She accessorised with earrings (and enviable abs).
During her first visit to Hong Kong, 15-year-old model Kōki chose a rather surprising, slightly more mature lace dress to attend Chanel’s ‘Le Rouge’ cocktail party. The dark red and green dress was paired with a natural makeup look and red lipstick for her to meet and greet the guests.
Inspired by Chanel’s iconic colours, Aki Chio took up the challenge to don a black dress with white ruffle collars, creating a picture of Victorian era beauty. The red lips added another statement to the bold look.
Getting bored with the classic trench coat in camel colour? Take inspiration from Leanne Ho, who opts for a navy version in suede here paired with a black wool hat, which successfully helps her stand out from the crowd.
If you don’t feel like putting on a tie but still want to look as decent and presentable as possible, try rocking square pockets like Christopher Owen here at Brioni’s pop-up exhibition launch party. We love his double-breasted suit with contrasting coloured buttons in a deep midnight blue.
