Lebanese-Australian model Jessica Kahawaty parties at ultra-exclusive British Vogue event in London

DUBAI: Lebanese-Australian beauty queen and TV host Jessica Kahawaty was spotted at the ultra-glamorous, coveted British Vogue Fashion and Film party in London this week.
The Dubai-based star spent Sunday evening with such celebrities as Pixie Lott and Alexa Chung at the exclusive event hosted by Vogue Editor-in-Chief Edward Enninful, Steve McQueen, Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell in partnership with Tiffany & Co.
She was one of the few Middle Eastern celebrities to be invited to the event, held at Annabel’s in London, and she dazzled in a sea foam green Valentino gown with striking white stripes.
Kahawaty rubbed shoulders with the likes of British model Jourdan Dunn, singer Rita Ora and US actress Zendaya, among other international celebrities.

Nora Attal has her day in the sun in Marrakesh

Nora Attal has her day in the sun in Marrakesh

DUBAI: British-Moroccan model Nora Attal posed up a storm in Marrakesh’s golden sunlight for a new campaign by fashion brand Zara.

The in-demand model shared snaps from the campaign, photographed by Christian Macdonald, on her Instagram account.

The collection of photographs show Attal modelling looks from Zara’s laid-back Spring/Summer 2019 collection against a backdrop of rippling sand dunes. Her featured ensembled include kaftans and long-length cardigans with hefty stripes in a clay-and-beige color palette.

Attal is no stranger to fronting campaigns — in January, the model was chosen as one of seven rising stars to feature in British fashion house Alexander McQueen’s latest campaign.

The Spring/Summer 2019 collection photoshoot was shot by British fashion and documentary photographer Jamie Hawkesworth and featured Attal wearing a number of cowboy-inspired looks.

The year has gotten off to a busy start for Attal, who was similarly in demand in 2018, when she took to the catwalk for Elie Saab, Loewe and Dior during Paris Fashion Week in September and starred in Italian fashion label Versace’s summer advert campaign.

In May, luxury e-retailer Farfetch launched in the Middle East with a little help from the young model.

She starred in a photoshoot wearing pieces from collections on sale on the platform. The colorful photographs were accompanied by a snappy, chatty interview with the young model.
Readers got the chance to gain insight into her earliest fashion memories and learn some off-the-cuff facts about the star.

“Recently I’ve been obsessed with noughties trends. Everyone was so cool and effortless back then. Now I go out in a full Juicy Couture tracksuit with no shame,” she told Farfetch at the time.

“If I wasn’t a model, I’d probably be at university, studying to get into something like criminal investigations, profiling or law,” she added.

Attal finished off 2018 by hitting the sand dunes in the UAE — however, this time it wasn’t part of a high-end photoshoot, but rather a day of fun.

The model enjoyed an afternoon of sandboarding in the emirate of Sharjah and even posted a snap on Instagram at the time.

“Apparently sandboarding is a thing,” she captioned the sunset shot.
