Celebrities, socialites, models and bloggers from all over the world (Calvin Klein flying in Bryanboy, Helena Bordon, Tina Leung among many others) all gathered at the far edges of Hong Kong’s Kai Tak Cruise terminal on Thursday 11 June, 2015 for the Calvin Klein Jeans music event, — a celebration of their latest Calvin Klein Jeans campaign starring the likes of Justin Bieber, K-Pop star Jay Park and (some would say super) model and reality TV fodder Kendall Jenner who also flew in for the occasion.
The Kai Tak cruise terminal is a large ghost town, where the former airport used to be. Not readily accessible by Hong Kong’s many convenient forms of transport, it would take a superstar to entice Hong’s Kong’s jaded socialite crowd…and Calvin Klein delivered! Guests mingled over endless glasses of champagnes that were lined up against the against the stunning backdrop of Hong Kong’s skyline, while enjoying live performances from K-Pop singer Jay Park (who has collaborated with the Biebs in the past) and a set by Justin Bieber himself. While it was known Justin Bieber would make an appearance, it was not expected that he would play such a long set, at arguably Hong Kong’s hottest party of the year (so far – and unlikely to be challenged).
Justin thrilled the 1000 strong audience with hits including “Boyfriend,” “Beauty & a Beat,” “As Long As You Love Me,” “Hold Tight,” “Baby,” covers of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car” and Ne-Yo’s “So Sick” and a crowd request which led to a rendition of “One Time.” He also performed a dance laden “Where Are U Now”, his collaboration with Jack Ü.
After two songs it appeared the Biebs had finished and left the stage, but it was actually just a wardrobe malfunction. “It looks like I ripped my pants,” Justin Bieber teased the screaming crowd “Do you guys mind?” Bieber asked his fans, who were ready to see their favorite singer undressed. “Should I just take them off?” the singer teased further.
Probably would have been appropriate, seeing he was here to spruik Calvin Klein underwear!
