The Prestige fashion squad arrived for our cover shoot with Karen Mok prepped with so many voluminous designer-label-embossed garment bags it would make a sartorial savant squeal. Our dashing photographer Paul Tsang (to Mok’s right) and his crew were on set prior to that, as lighting tests and background colours were being honed to perfection. Then the men in black, armed bodyguards carrying boxes of jewels, arrived in uniform. And yes, we were told they could outrun us no matter how potentially malfeasant our intentions may be, as trays of treasures emerged from puzzling locked-and-stocked containers. Finally, the star herself (and her entourage!) as she dashed straight into hair and make-up. Between shots, we were all mesmerised by the fast changes, the myriad moods and the on-camera ease Karen Mok displayed. It could have been a stressful shoot – timelines and deadlines – but Dee Dee was our blissfully ignorant, bright eyed and bushy tailed mascot, who elevated the mood at every turn. Puppies make everything better. Including this behind-the-scenes shot.
