Lady Kitty Spencer makes a whirlwind trip to Dubai

DUBAI: Princess Diana’s niece Lady Kitty Spencer has joined Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in Australia, but not before she jetted into Dubai last week to add a touch of royal glamor to a Bulgari jewelry event in the city.
While in Dubai, the model took to the desert where she posed for photos in a cinched-at-the-waist white dress by Australian fashion house Zimmermann.
She then attended a launch party at the swanky Bulgari Resort and Hotel in Dubai, at which Spanish actress Úrsula Corberó, who shot to fame in Netflix drama “Money Heist,” was announced as the new face of the brand’s Fiorever jewelry line.
Spencer, who has been a Bulgari brand ambassador since May, was seen spending time with Lebanese actress Nadine Nassib Njeim at the party, which the British beauty attended in a sparkling, figure-hugging gown and layers of Bulgari jewels.
The model then flew to Australia, where she visited a children’s hospital.

“What an emotional morning meeting the courageous and inspirational children at the world class new Perth Children’s hospital,” she captioned a photograph on Instagram.
She isn’t the only British royal down under at the moment, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle — who is pregnant with the couple’s first child — are currently on a 16-day tour of Australia and the South Pacific.
Prince Harry scaled the Sydney Harbor Bridge on Friday to raise a flag marking the arrival of the Invictus Games, his brainchild and the focus of the tour, The Associated Press reported.
The sporting event, founded by Harry in 2014, started on Saturday. It gives sick and injured military personnel and veterans the opportunity to compete in sports such as wheelchair basketball and to find inspiration to recover.
Harry, Prime Minister Scott Morrison, four members of the Australian team and the widow of an Australian veteran climbed more than 1,000 steps up the back of an arch to raise the Invictus Games Sydney 2018 flag.
“The Sydney Harbor Bridge is an Australian icon and I can think of no better place to raise the ... flag,” Morrison said in a statement.
During the descent, Harry hugged fellow climber Gwen Cherne, a games ambassador whose husband Peter Cafe, a veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, took his own life in February.

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.
