Get Up Close and Personal with Red Carpet Royalty

By Sophie Pettit 18 January 2016
A star-studded line up of famous faces have touched down in Hong Kong, and this time we're getting up, close, and personal. Forget paparazzi shots on the red carpet, we're kicking back in the kitchen with Lindsay Lohan, getting a thumbs up from Obama, and giggling with Gaga (who appears to have mistaken the bin for a chair). Okay, you caught us. These guys aren't really in Hong Kong - we're talking about Terry Richardson's latest photography exhibition, Portraits. A galaxy of famous faces are on display at Galerie Perrotin, with two dozen photographs spanning his A-list career just waiting to be gawped at. There are also two 'face in hole' boards which are totally irresistible to the child in you - cue laughter and selfies.

Avant-garde is his middle name, and his raw, stripped-back shots are instantly recognisable. Richardson's unique style has propelled him to work with some of the world's biggest stars, as well as high fashion brands Tom Ford and Yves Saint Laurent, and luxury publications including Vogue. Phew! That's an impressive resume if we've ever seen one. Make sure to catch Portraits at Galerie Perrotin in Central. With free entry, we're seriously considering multiple trips before the display comes to an end on February 20. What better way to kick off the new year than by hanging out with your favourite stars? We'll see you there ... Galerie Perrotin, 50 Connaught Road, Central, (+852) 3758 2180
