Kendall Jenner looks pretty in pink in Lebanese label

DUBAI: US model and reality star Kendall Jenner was recently spotted in in Sydney wearing a frothy pink dress by none other than French-Lebanese label, Ingie Paris, owned by Ingie Chalhoub.

The bubblegum pink dress was made of ruffled, pink silk-taffeta and featured an ostrich-feathered trim in a hot pink shade.

The tiered, off-the-shoulder dress hails from Ingie Paris’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection.

The model was in town to attend the opening of Tiffany & Co.’s new flagship store last week.

Jenner boasted a dazzling diamond necklace and wore her hair in a swept-back pony tail. She finished off the look with a pair of white, heeled pumps.

It’s not the first time Jenner has shown off a Lebanese label, however. In February, she turned heads at the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty in a risqué dress by designer Rami Kadi.

In October, showed off a bag by Dubai-based brand L’Afshar at a basketball game in Los Angeles.

The Kardashian sibling sported a boxy purple bag with a gold chain, called the Ida in Purple Croc, at a game between the Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Lakers — whose official colors are purple and yellow.

Jenner attended the game with Travis Scott, her younger sister’s beau. The model wore two outfits during the evening — a white graphic t-shirt with jeans and, later on, a black top with jeans and metallic silver boots.

It isn’t the only Middle East-based brand to have caught the Kardashian clan’s attention.

Kendall’s younger sister, Kylie, has made headlines in recent months for her glittering wardrobe of Arab-designed ensembles.

In September, Kylie took to Instagram to build up hype for her latest cosmetics launch wearing a catsuit by none other than Kuwaiti designer Yousef Al-Jasmi.

Known for his glittering, tight-fitting gowns, Al-Jasmi has dressed the who’s who of the entertainment industry, including Lady Gaga, Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez.

The youngest Kardashian sibling also wore a show-stopping dress by the designer in 2016 — she stepped out in a barely there, silver number designed by Al-Jasmi during New York Fashion Week that year.

The social media star also wore a beaded bag by Kuwaiti brand Marzook during her birthday celebrations last year — leading the $2,495 clutch to be sold out online.


‘Age-Old Cities’ exhibition in Riyadh museum breathes new life into ancient sites

‘Age-Old Cities’ exhibition in Riyadh museum breathes new life into ancient sites 

  • National Museum in Riyadh hosts digital show that tells the story of Mosul, Palmyra, Aleppo and Leptis Magna

JEDDAH: An exhibition that uses digital technology to revive the region’s ancient sites and civilizations that have been destroyed or are under threat due to conflict and terrorism opened at the National Museum in Riyadh on April 18.

“Age-Old Cities” tells the story of four historically significant cities that have been devastated by violence: Mosul in Iraq, Palmyra and Aleppo in Syria, and Leptis Magna in Libya. 

Using stunning giant-screen projections, virtual reality, archival documents and images, and video testimonials from inhabitants of the affected sites, the immersive exhibition transports visitors back in time and presents the cities as they were in their prime. 

It charts their journey from the origins of their ancient civilizations to their modern-day state, and presents plans for their restoration and repair. 

The exhibition has been organized by the Ministry of Culture in collaboration with the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris. Riyadh is the first stop outside the French capital on the exhibition’s global tour. 

The exhibition follows last month’s unveiling of the Kingdom’s new cultural vision, which included the announcement of several initiatives, including a new residency scheme for international artists to practice in the Kingdom and the establishment of the Red Sea International Film Festival. 

Prince Badr bin Abdullah bin Farhan Al-Saud, minister of culture, said: “I am delighted to welcome the ‘Age-Old Cities’ exhibition to Riyadh. 

“It highlights the importance of heritage preservation, particularly here in the Middle East, and the vulnerability of some of our historic sites. 

“It must be the responsibility of governments to put an end to this damage and neglect, and to put heritage at the heart of action, investment, and policy.

“I will be encouraging my fellow members of government to attend this eye-opening exhibition in our National Museum, and hope to work in the future with partners, governments and experts to do what we can to secure our region’s heritage.”

The exhibition carries a significant message about the importance of preserving and protecting these precious but fragile sites — one which resonates strongly in the week when one of the world’s most-famous heritage sites, Paris’ Notre-Dame Cathedral, went up in flames.
