Tala Sam­man daz­zles at the races

Arab News - - SPORTS -

Sam­man, who reg­u­larly plays on the DJ cir­cuit at fash­ion events and opening par­ties in Dubai, wore a sparkling sil­ver mini-dress paired with lilac pom­pom san­dals and chic avi­a­tors.

In Fe­bru­ary, Sam­man made head­lines when she scored an en­vi­able gig opening for Bri­tish artist Dua Lipa at the du Fo­rum arena on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Is­land.

It was the “New Rules” singer’s first solo ap­pear­ance in the UAE and she per­formed her hits “Be the One” and “IDGAF” be­fore she headed to Auck­land, New Zealand, for her next per­for­mance.

The in­flu­encer and DJ grad­u­ated from the Lon­don Col­lege of Fash­ion in Fash­ion Me­dia and Com­mu­ni­ca­tion stud­ies and has since gone on to be­come a well-known name on the Mid­dle East’s fash­ion scene. Her style blog, My­fash­di­ary.com, was one of the first beauty and lifestyle blogs to be launched in the UAE and has been a guide for all things food, fash­ion and fun-re­lated since 2009.

Sam­man helped to judge the win­ners of the event’s style com­pe­ti­tion, choos­ing the best dressed man and woman, the best hat and the best dressed pair from a crowd of fash­ion-savvy hope­fuls.

The best hat award went to Rus­sian-born Ok­sana Be­lyeaeva who flew all the way from Aus­tralia es­pe­cially for the races. Her in­tri­cate pink-and-gold hat was made of plas­tic and rub­ber.

Mean­while, Nader Te­lab from Su­dan won the cov­eted best dressed male prize for his dap­per three­piece suit.

The white blazer, wor­thy of a wash­ing up pow­der ad­vert, was paired with white trousers and a blue waist coat. Te­lab added fin­ish­ing flour­ishes with a pea­cock blue um­brella and hat.
