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.

Rihanna opens New York pop-up shop for her Fenty label

  • Fenty will unveil a new mini-collection at the pop-up store
  • Most of the items will be also available at their online shop

NEW YORK: Rolling out her concept of fashion that is not a slave to the seasons or the shackles of Fashion Week, Rihanna opened the second pop-up shop of her Fenty brand in New York Tuesday, a month after the launch of the new fashion house in Paris.
Fenty, which the Barbados-born diva launched with French luxury powerhouse LVMH, has set up shop in fashionable Soho store The Webster and officially opens to the public from Wednesday until June 30.
It provided an occasion for the young fashion house to unveil a new mini-collection, called “6-19” after its launch date, following on from the inaugural “5-19” collection in Paris last month.
Some pieces from the first collection are back, alongside some new items, including a series of dresses and skirts in bold colors like orange or yellow but also some very dense prints.
The cuts are figure-hugging with plunging necklines and the label has chosen soft materials such as satin or mesh.
Most of the pieces are available online from Wednesday, with the exception of a set of T-shirts, at $230 each, which are only available in the store before being marketed online in July.
The prices of the collection are similar to the Paris offerings, which ranged from $250 for a T-shirt to more than $1,000 for a denim jacket or pantsuit.
Rihanna, the world’s richest female musician, is the first black woman to head up a fashion house for Paris-based LVMH, which owns Dior, Louis Vuitton, Fendi and Givenchy among others.
Fenty, named for the 31-year-old singer, born Robyn Rihanna Fenty, is LVMH’s first new luxury brand from scratch since the launch of Christian Lacroix in 1987.
