Gemma is no stranger to the St. Regis brand. In the movie Crazy Rich Asians, Gemma’s character Astrid Teo made the first entrance at the Astor Bar in the St. Regis Kuala Lumpur, which was transformed into a jewellery store. “I am honoured to be part of this special Midnight Supper event celebrating the first St. Regis hotel opening in Hong Kong and to have the chance to have a firsthand experience of its exceptional service,” comments Gemma.

Caroline Astor, mother of the St. Regis founder and doyenne for Gilded Age high society, established the original after party with these legendary events. Traditionally commencing at midnight, they now conclude at this hour. These coveted, intimate gatherings were, and remain, treasured chapters in the St. Regis brand’s social heritage to celebrate grand debuts and the bestowing of “connoisseurship” on selected Luminaries.
