On Wednesday, September 6, 2017, over 500 VIP guests and friends of Thailand Tatler magazine, as well as a number of respected media, joined us in celebration of our 26th anniversary at the 2017 Tatler Ball, held at the Bangkok Marriott Marquis hotel's Thai Chitlada Grand Ballroom. The event’s Lustrous Pearl theme saw captains of industry, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, leaders of tomorrow and a host of well-known faces from fashion and high society dressed in their shimmering finest.
Highlights of the evening, which was directed by consummate master of ceremonies Ning Saraichatt Jirapaet, included music by Chabah Band and guest singers Boonkiet Chokwatana, Suchart Mahantakhun and Kasidate Kolasastraseni, and the highly anticipated presentations of Thailand Tatler’s annual awards for 2017. This year’s award recipients were Benja Bencharongkul for Most Eligible Man, Yanin Viravaidya for Most Eligible Woman, Orand Puipanthavong for Most Stylish Man, Orawan Setabandhu for Most Stylish Woman, Thiraphong and Pornnapa Chansiri for Couple of the Year and Yuwadee Chirathivat for Person of the Year. Nachanok Ratanadaros and Onchuma Durongdej were also awarded Tatler Ball's Best Dressed Man and Woman, respectively.
The ball was truly another shining and warmly attended top-class Tatler event. We sincerely thank all who attended and made the night possible, and we look forward to many more Tatler Balls to come.
