Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow and Socialite Paris Hilton were among the luminaries who walked the red carpet in Hong Kong ahead of the city's first fundraiser for the Foundation for AIDS Research (AmfAR).
However, one arrival on the red carpet turned heads for all the wrong reasons.
Leung Chai-yan, the notorious daughter of Hong Kong's Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying, arrived late on the red carpet and appeared to need support walking.
Leaning against the backdrop for support, she ignored pleas by the carpet host to leave, before stumbling off to laughter and jeers from the local media.
The 23-year-old law student has gained notoriety for a series of explosive social media pictures and messages, one in which she appears to show her slashed wrist, and another saying she feels no shame living luxuriously off taxpayers' money. The accounts have since been deleted.
