grace lam: all i want for christmas

As Vogue China's Senior Fashion Style Editor, Grace Lam is possibly the best-dressed woman in fashion in Hong Kong. She's also the most wickedly funny (a quintessentially British word Grace uses frequently in conversation). But don't let her impeccably chic exterior fool you; this is a woman of many interests, which, you might be surprised to learn, include an avid love of Formula 1 racing, a eccentric obsession with gnomes and a passion for home cooking. She's also not a luxury label snob; instead, Grace is a fierce supporter of upcoming Chinese design talent, and is guaranteed to be wearing at least one thing from an upcoming Asian designer at any given context in which you might see her--this, we really, really love, girlfriend!
