This year is the third time the event is being held in Singapore. Meaning Dinner in White in French, it was held at Tanjong Beach in Sentosa this time around, with the location revealed to participants just hours before it began.

According to a report in AsiaOne, this is Fann Wong's final public appearance before giving birth. Diner en Blanc - French for Dinner in White - saw about 3,000 guests attending this year, up from 2,000 last year and more than thrice the 800 guests in 2012.

Almost 10,000 people are on the waiting list every year, Mr Aymeric Pasquier, son of event founder Francois Pasquier, told The Straits Times.

The invitation-only event began as the senior Pasquier's idea of an intimate reunion dinner party in Paris 26 years ago. Singapore was the first Asian country to host it in 2012.

It is described as a "pop-up picnic" as diners must take their own meals, tables and chairs, and then leave no trace once the night's revelry ends at a location revealed only hours before dinner.

They also have to wear white. The dinner was held in Marina Bay in 2012 and Marina Barrage last year.
