Inspired by the buzz around #MYTatlerBall2019, we take a nostalgic trip through the archives for a look at how these well-dressed guests have upped their style game over the years

Every year at Tatler Ball, we're excited to find out just how creative our guests can be with their gowns, suits and accessories.

While we saw some impressive gowns and bling at the Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur last week, we have no doubt that the best is yet to come.

In the spirit of #MYTatlerBall2019, we’ve indulged in a little nostalgia, revisiting ballroom looks from past years with several guests of Tatler Ball.

Spotted at this year's Tatler Ball wearing a willowy lace gown in soft lilac, Datin Liza Abu Hassan was a picture of pastel perfection, in contrast to her bright green ensemble worn at Tatler Ball 2013. Nicely done, Datin Leez!

When it comes to style, we expect only the best from the woman who bagged the honour of Malaysia Tatler's Most Stylish Woman in 2013.

With husband Michael Helfman in tow, this bright-eyed beauty favoured pearls, puffed sleeves and contrasting colours for her Tatler Ball look this year.    

Timothy Tiah & Audrey Ooi

From their boy-meets-girl romance to their undeniably adorable family, everything about this couple makes us smile. This year, Colony KL's Audrey Ooi was an angelic vision in her dazzling cream organza gown alongside husband Timothy Tiah.

Here's a lady who means business: Muhaini Mahmud has made her mark in Malaysia's digital landscape, taken motherhood in her stride and - unsurprisingly - perfected the subtle art of minimalist chic with her all-black ballroom look this year.   

Yap Weng Yau and Evonne Khoo

We can always count on loving couple Yap Weng Yau and Evonne Khoo to impress when it comes to dressing up for Tatler Ball.

Each year, both husband and wife pull out all the stops, always looking stunning together. (With a stylish mum like Datin Sri Barbara Yap, we're hardly surprised.)

As 2019 has been an unprecedented year of milestones for art gallery owner Lim Wei-Ling, her Tatler Ball look was fittingly momentous. We spotted this lanky beauty in a bling-adorned gown with her dapper husband Yohan Rajan by her side.
