Behind The Scenes: Cover Girl Saowakon Pornpatanarak In Her Element
The cover shoot for our September issue, which celebrates Thailand Tatler’s 28th anniversary, took our crew to the outskirts of Bangkok and the Thana City residence of Saowakon Pornpatanarak, the entrepreneur behind popular Thai skincare brand Namu Life Snail White. Her beautiful home, which includes a swimming pool area reminiscent of those that grace the grandest of chic villas in the south of France and a delightful upstairs garden terrace, offered the team a myriad of picturesque backdrops against which to shoot images.
Surrounded by the familiar, including her two beloved labradoodles John and Jane, Saowakon was completely relaxed and chatted amiably with everyone as she underwent hair and make-up sessions. An experienced fashionista with an eye for style, she chose to wear her own outfits and in the process demonstrated her penchant for the eclectic combined with a touch of vintage. Complementing her ensembles, she also wore stunning pieces from Bulgari’s B.Zero1, Serpenti and Diva’s Dream collections.
This was a unique cover shoot in many ways, not least because Saowakon was some months pregnant. That gave our team pause for thought but our cover lady was stamina personified, happily posing on a daybed or out on the lawn with her dogs and moving from one location to the next at a good clip. In fact, after a full day of activity that began at 10am and ended at 8pm, Saowakon seemed to have more energy left than anyone else present.
