Fashion blogger Tala Samman dazzles at the Dubai World Cup

DUBAI: DJ and fashion blogger Tala Samman dazzled onlookers at Saturday’s Dubai World Cup, wearing head-to-toe Topshop while she sat on the judging panel for the event’s best dressed competition, dubbed the Style Stakes.
The Chicago-born fashion star, who is originally Syrian, is a popular fashion and beauty blogger, with more than 120,000 followers on her Instagram account, @myfashdiary.
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.
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 three-piece 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.

Georgia Fowler stuns in Zuhair Murad gown

  • The designer’s official Instagram account posted the snap with a gushing caption that read: “The gorgeous @georgiafowler strikes again in Zuhair Murad.”
  • Fowler is the youngest daughter of Australian golfer Peter Fowler and appeared in the music video for Kygo and Selena Gomez's “It Ain't Me” in 2017.

DUBAI: New Zealand-born model Georgia Fowler just appeared on the cover of Harper's Bazaar Australia wearing a dress by none other than Lebanese powerhouse designer Zuhair Murad.
The model, magazine and the designer all shared an image of the gorgeous cover page, with Fowler saying, “Growing up, I wished to be in the pages of this glossy magazine, but to be on the cover — and for the third time — has me bouncing off the walls with glee. Thank you for your ongoing support, @bazaaraustralia.”
Meanwhile, the designer’s official Instagram account posted the snap with a gushing caption that read: “The gorgeous @georgiafowler strikes again in Zuhair Murad.”
In the shot, Fowler dons a gown that was unveiled as part of Murad’s Spring/Summer 2018 Haute Couture collection fashion show in Paris in January. The whimsical, floor-length dress features a daring plunging neckline and boasts a voluminous A-line skirt, all of which is belted with a thin black strap at the waist. The nude tulle is appliqued with black, white and red flowers and cacti over an ever-so-slightly sheer beige slip.
Fowler’s chestnut hair cascades down toward her shoulders in loose, beach-style waves and her make-up is kept to a sultry minimum. For jewelry, the young model wears nothing except a single thin bracelet.
The 25-year-old model, who was discovered when she was just 12-years-old, had her big break in 2012 when she walked in a Chanel show in Versailles. She went on to make international runway appearances for the likes of Victoria’s Secret, Armani, Phillip Plein and Elie Saab, among a raft of other major players in the global fashion industry.
Fowler has also appeared in the hallowed pages of Vogue Italia, Vogue France, Vogue Mexico, Elle magazine and various other fashion publications around the world.
In February, she told British Vogue that her favorite part about being a model is “the ability to morph into any character you’ve always wanted to be. I always find it quite fun. It’s being able to do so much more than just being an image.”
Her success as a model isn’t her only claim to fame, however. In fact, Fowler is the youngest daughter of Australian golfer Peter Fowler and appeared in the music video for Kygo and Selena Gomez's “It Ain't Me” in 2017.
Besides making it big in the world of high-end fashion, it seems that the model has also found time to fall in love — she is reportedly dating US singer Nick Jonas, who shot to fame as part of the Jonas Brothers boy band in the noughties.
