THE PARTY At Waikīkī’s leading hotel, Halekulani, international and local glitterati arrived in full force to celebrate the Middle Kingdom for HIFF’s much-awaited China Night, sponsored in part by Modern Luxury Hawai‘i. The soiree honored Chinese media mogul and veritable living legend Yue-Sai Kan. To top it off, Kan was accompanied by Miss Universe China Diana Xu. THE PLAYERS HIFF Executive Director Chuck Boller; Halekulani COO Peter Shaindlin; The Vilcek Foundation Executive Director Rick Kinsel; Affinity China co-founder & CEO Christine Lu THE HIGHLIGHTS Guests were abuzz over the arrival of Xu, who lit up the room with her beauty and grace. The evening’s other heat seeker was Daniel Henney, a top male model who’s become one of Korea’s hottest actors. Adding to the evening’s allure, Neiman Marcus sent out a bevy of models in gorgeous evening wear. (Xu modeled a few stunners, too.)
