Bella Hadid takes Paris Men’s Fashion Week by storm

DUBAI: Palestinian-American model Bella Hadid took Paris Men’s Fashion Week by storm as she walked the streets in a variety of fashion-forward outfits and rubbed shoulders with Hollywood stars such as Josh Harnett and Robert Pattinson.
The model joined Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld, sporting a chic new beard, and Hollywood star Robert Pattinson on the front row at the Dior Homme show on Saturday and promptly made headlines with her razor-sharp black suit and peek-a-boo lingerie.
The brunette powerhouse, 21, who was in Paris as the face of Dior Beauty, wore a pair of the label’s new squidgy trainers, Dior Homme Runners, which The Guardian newspaper lauded as part of the high-end brand’s attempt to woo the millennial market.
However, the popular model, who is regularly seen with the likes of Kardashian family member Kendall Jenner, did make a rare fashion faux pas, according to some international media outlets.
At the Heron Preston’s winter 2018/19 show, she wore a mesh bodysuit and oversized 1980s power suit with a pair of white sneakers and long-length socks in what turned out to be a rather odd mix-and-match outfit.
Hadid shared her approval of the Dior show, with designer Kris Van Assche at the helm, with her 16 million Instagram followers, saying “seriously stunned to see your work move in real life, Kris. Thank you for having me. Big, big honor.”
Paris Men’s Fashion Week wrapped up on Sunday and followed an intense flurry of men’s fashion weeks across the globe, from London to Milan. Next up on the fashion agenda is New York Men’s Fashion Week, which is slated to begin in early February.

Spotted at MFW: Salama Mohamed hunts for pasta on the way to Aigner

MILAN: If you follow Emirati influencer Salama Mohamed in Instagram, you’ll know what we mean when we say she’s one of the funniest, tongue-in-cheek bloggers around.

And the mother-of-two, who usually posts family snaps and collaborates with her influencer husband on comedic sketches, brought some of that humor to Milan Fashion Week over the weekend.

Mohamed took to the streets of Paris in an array of glittering outfits, some of which were styled by up-and-coming Emirati stylist Faisal Naser.

Arab News caught up with the social media star, who has 247k followers on Instagram, and discovered what it’s like to be thrown into the spotlight at one of the world’s biggest fashion events.



“I never ever imagined myself going to Milan Fashion Week, simply because I live in my pjs. It feels so surreal to be here!” she said.

“I love this city and it’s actually my fourth time in Milan. Besides the charm of the city and its amazing vibes, I must admit that my absolute favorite tourist activity … is shopping and eating pizza for every meal and snack.”

She’s nothing if not relatable.

Mohamed has parlayed that sense of humor and relatability into her own jewelry line, Pearl by S, and a fast-growing fanbase on social media — and now she has demonstrated her reach by snapping up an invite to the exclusive Aigner show, which took place on Friday night in Milan.

“I loved the show so much! The venue was breathtaking. Every outfit and every model gave me goosebumps. My ultimate favorite piece was the Aigner coat with Aigner print all over it. It was an out of this world experience,” she told Arab News.

And then, in a typical back-to-the-real-world line from the influencer, she added: “To be honest, what I am excited about the most every time I’m here is to hunt down the best and newest pasta spots.”

From pasta to high-end sartorial glamor, this blogger does it all.
