Priyanka Chopra flaunts feathered Lebanese look in Amsterdam

DUBAI: Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra is on a wedding world tour and is pulling out all the stops when it comes to her fashion choices.

The bride-to-be, who is set to marry US pop star Nick Jonas, took her international bachelorette festivities to the streets of Amsterdam this week, after a much-reported-on bridal shower in New York.

In Amsterdam, she chose to wear a feathered minidress by Lebanese designer Georges Chakra, straight from his Spring 2018 haute couture collection.

The delicate dress was encrusted with crystals and sequins and featured a feathered cape.

Chopra took to Instagram and posted a series of photos in which she poses in the ethereal dress, which she paired with white Christian Louboutin heels and a white faux fur coat.

“Featherweight champion of the world,” she captioned one of the photos.

“Artist and gorgeous bride-to-be @priyankachopra celebrated her bachelorette weekend in Amsterdam wearing a white, long-sleeved beaded cocktail dress with feather detailing and long-sleeved feather duster from the Georges Chakra couture 2018 collection!” the fashion house captioned a reposted version of one of the photos on its Instagram account.

The 36-year-old partied with her friends and family, including “Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner, who is engaged to Chopra’s future brother-in-law, Joe Jonas.

The bridal party took to the streets of Amsterdam wearing red-and-white ensembles, while Chopra stood out in her flamboyant feathered look.

The stint in Amsterdam followed Chopra’s intimate bridal shower held at Tiffany’s Blue Box Café in New York on Sunday.

The star wore a fitted gown by Marchesa with ostrich-feather detailing and nude Christian Louboutin heels.

Guests at the party included Kevin Jonas, TV show host Kelly Ripa and actor Lupita Nyong’o.

Chopra and Jonas have not announced the date of their nuptials, but according to reports the happy couple will say “I do” in India at the end of November.

The couple celebrated their engagement in Chopra’s home country with a bash in Mumbai in August.

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.
