The lat­est news from the fash­ion and beauty worlds.


Look­ing for some­thing to spend all those dirhams you’re sav­ing by not go­ing out in Jan­uary? Prada has col­lab­o­rated with Moda Operandi to cre­ate an exclusive col­lec­tion of 20 shoe styles that are su­per-cute and per­fect for spring. The col­lec­tion fea­tures the brand’s trade­mark kit­ten heels as well as pointed flats in pas­tel colours with re­mov­able printed bows. Prices start at Dh4,120, moda­


Fancy hav­ing some­one trawl Arc­tic-cold NYC’s best bou­tiques for you, while you sit at home in the nice warm UAE? We Shop That is a new per­sonal shopping ser­vice based in New York that al­lows shop­pers in the GCC to pur­chase prod­ucts from the US and have them shipped to their home coun­try. This even in­cludes brands that don’t usu­ally ship to the Mid­dle East. The ser­vice will have a spe­cial fo­cus on bou­tiques and in­de­pen­dent brands that don’t oth­er­wise have e-com­merce sites and you can or­der fash­ion, beauty and life­style prod­ucts. All you need to do is fill in the de­tails of the type (or spe­cific) prod­uct that you are look­ing for, and ex­pert per­sonal shop­pers will do their best to find it and come back to you with a quote. Once you’ve agreed, your items will be shipped to your home. One ser­vice costs around Dh185.


The Golden Globes on Sun­day saw women and men sup­port the Time’s Up cam­paign against sex­ual harassment, fol­low­ing cases that have rocked the in­dus­try. They did it by wear­ing all black, forc­ing red-car­pet­style pun­dits to ask ac­tresses like Reese Wither­spoon, Eva Lon­go­ria, Salma Hayek and Ash­ley Judd (above) some­thing more than ‘who are you wear­ing?’. The New York Times calls it ‘the new red car­pet’.


I love the new col­lec­tion by Kristina Fidel­skaya. The An­ima Col­lec­tion for spring/sum­mer 18 in­cludes over­sized struc­tural pieces with bold state­ment­mak­ing colours. There’s a cool mil­i­tary in­flu­ence and sports el­e­ments to the col­lec­tion with track­suit-style trousers paired with smart jack­ets as well as over­sized shapes and belted waist­lines. Prices start at around Dh2,400, avail­able at kristi­nafi­del­


Dubai-based lux­ury on­line store is in­creas­ing its fash­ion of­fer­ings this year, in­clud­ing col­lec­tions from a num­ber of lo­cal de­sign­ers. Here’s my top five brands to shop.

Amira Ha­roon: Fri­day met UAE-based Amira last year be­fore her fash­ion show at Lon­don Fash­ion Week – it looks like it was a hit, as her lat­est col­lec­tion (be­low, left) is now avail­able on­line.

Chloe: While Ounass was al­ready stock­ing a lim­ited se­lec­tion of ac­ces­sories by Chloe, this will be the first time they are sell­ing the ready-to-wear col­lec­tion. The S/S 18 col­lec­tion fea­tures lay­er­ing, flowy ma­te­ri­als and flo­ral em­broi­dery. Anatomi: A lux­u­ri­ous abaya brand based in Dubai, Anatomi puts a stylish twist on the clas­sic cover-up.

Vete­ments: 2018’s brand to be seen in. Vete­ments has been worn by stars such as Gigi Hadid and Ri­hanna and you’ll soon be able to shop their lat­est col­lec­tion of sporty streetwear.

Madiyah Al Sharqi: One of my favourite lo­cal de­sign­ers; her pas­tel-coloured S/S 18 col­lec­tion (be­low right) is her best yet.
