Tala Samman dazzles at the races
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.
