Behind The Scenes: ML Ploynapat Leenutaphong Spreads Joy On The June 2020 Cover
For our cover shoot for this issue, The Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok provided the use of its facilities as a location and it was the perfect backdrop for business executive ML Ploynapat Leenutaphong—and a much-reduced Tatler crew—to meet and yet keep socially distanced… but also get the shots we needed.
ML Ploynapat is the co-founder with her husband Apichat Leenutaphong of Sharich Holding and Renazzo Motor, the latter of which is the importer of Lamborghini supercars to Thailand, and just like a finely tuned roadster she arrived raring to go. So as not to waste time, as she was being attended to by a make-up artist and then hair stylist we were able to have a quick chat about her responsibilities at Lamborghini Thailand and the importance of engendering a culture of happiness for herself and those who work alongside her.
As the photoshoot progressed we popped in and out of the hotel to find the right backdrops and while many shots were taken outdoors there were no complaints from our cover lady—despite the extreme heat—and none from her co-star in many of the images, an already hot-looking sleek Lamborghini Huracan EVO RWD.
Though the changing of garments between shots took some time, Ploynapat rocked outfits organised by Club 21 with brands such as Comme des Garcon, Delpozo and Elie Saab, which were complemented by a fine selection of jewellery from Gems Pavilion. Like the experienced media professional she is, our cover girl sailed through the process with ease and we were all heading back to our respective lockdown lairs long before curfew hour.
