Tanunya Thanakitamnuay Jiramaneekul arrives on set at the newly opened 137 Pillars Suites Bangkok, our charming backdrop for this issue’s cover shoot, at 10am sharp. The petite 29-year-old appears cool, calm and collected—no special requests for room service and straightaway she’s conferring with our glam squad. “Should we go for a sleek style today?” she smiles while gesturing to her chic bob.
If we kept records for the fastest photo shoot in Thailand Tatler’s history, Tanunya’s would be a front-runner. Styled in a flattering dress by Delpozo and a matching wristwatch by Piaget, her cover shot, much to our surprise, was wrapped up within 10 minutes.
Over a lunchtime plate of pasta at the hotel’s Bangkok Trading Post, the newly married executive amiably shares recollections from her wedding celebrations to long-time beau Kongpat Jiramaneekul. “My favourite moment from our party in Khao Yai was when his sister, Ardhawadee, sang Alicia Keys’ If I Ain’t Got You for our first dance,” she reminisces.
