Sara Sampaio flaunts Rami Kadi dress in New York

DUBAI: Portuguese model Sara Sampaio attended a gala event in New York last week wearing a sparkling outfit by Lebanese designer Rami Kadi.
The Victoria’s Secret Angel and Giorgio Armani beauty ambassador walked the pink carpet in a form-fitting miniskirt and cropped halter neck top with a peekaboo cutout and finished off the look with sleek hair and toned-down makeup.
Sampaio was attending the 25th annual FFANY Shoes on Sale gala in New York, advertised as the largest fundraising event in the US shoe industry. The event sees donated footwear sold on live television, through shopping channel QVC, and at an annual charity gala event in a special designer shoe salon.
Proceeds are donated to nine breast cancer-focused research organizations in the US.
This year, the event took place at New York’s Ziegfeld Ballroom on Thursday.

Sampaio has had a busy few months and, as well as preparing for December’s hotly anticipated Victoria’s Secret show in New York, was recently unveiled as the cover star for Vogue India’s October issue.
The magazine’s 11th anniversary issue sees Sampaio pose in a number of vibrant outfits alongside Bollywood star Ranveer Singh.
“Thank(s), Vogue India for having me as part of this issue! So much love for you guys!” the model captioned an Instagram post showing one of the magazine covers that was photographed by Greg Swales and styled by Anaita Shroff Adajania.

Before the colorful snaps were unveiled, the model walked the runway for high-end Italian label Dolce & Gabbana at Milan Fashion Week in September.

“Thank you, @dolcegabbana for having me in your show with so many iconic women! Always such a fun and wonderful show to walk in!” she posted on Instagram shortly after the star-studded show.

Sampaio was joined on the runway by none other than Sheikha Dana Al-Khalifa of Bahrain — the only royal to walk in the show.

The royal, entrepreneur and fashion blogger took to the runway in an ankle-length dress with an oversized red flower pinned her dark hair.

Al-Khalifa and Sampaio were joined on the catwalk by plus-sized US model Ashley Graham and an array of 1990s-era supermodels and celebrities as the Italian fashion house presented its opulent “DNA” spring-summer collection.

Karen Wazen stars in flirty, fun fragrance campaign

DUBAI: Lebanese influencer Karen B. Wazen took to Instagram over the weekend to share her latest advert campaign with British perfume brand Jo Malone.
The stylish blogger shared the video with her 858,000 followers and was quickly inundated with overwhelmingly positive comments on the social media platform.
“So happy to share with you my campaign with @jomalonelondon — ‘You and I together and nothing else matters… Combining nature and love ... Combining two scents... combining two souls’,” she captioned the video.
Directed by Dubai-based influencer and designer Ahmed El-Sayed, who goes by the name @Twistedcurlz on Instagram, the short clip sees Wazen posing for the camera in a park while holding two bottles of the new fragrance.
Wazen shows off biker chic style in the new campaign video, wearing a black leather beret and oversized, boxy leather jacket covered in silver studs.
She draws a heart in the sand, throws fallen leaves at the camera and mouths “I love you” in the flirty, fun clip.

“I loved working on this with you guys,” Wazen added in her caption.
Dubbed a “Cologne Intense,” the new fragrance that Wazen shows off in the video is called “Bronze Wood & Leather” and is described by the brand as a “sultry leather (fragrance) encased in a medley of woods… A rich, enveloping new scent.”
It’s been a busy week for Wazen, who took to Instagram to get involved in the viral #10YearChallenge with a series of snaps.
The blogger shared two side-by-side photos — the first of which was a photo of her posing with her husband, Elias Bakhazi, 10 years ago alongside a more recent shot. “It started when we were young,” she captioned the photographs.
The challenge saw celebrities around the world share decade-old snaps of themselves alongside recent photos to show just how much — and is some cases, how little — they have changed.
However, Wazen isn’t one to just sit back and follow international trends and viral crazes. In December, the successful style star launched her very own range of edgy eyewear featuring 15 designs in a range of retro-to-futuristic styles and colors that are available on karenwazen.com.
