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.

What We Are Reading Today: The Outlaw Ocean by Ian Urbina

The Outlaw Ocean represents a four-year project, built on a series of deeply reported features for The New York Times that brought Ian Urbina from the Antarctic to Somalia — but most of it takes place in the impenetrable vastness of the high seas, a region that begins 13 miles from shore. 

Each chapter tells a different story, in locations ranging from the City of Lights, a glowing patch of the Atlantic where hundreds of poachers shine light into the water to catch squid, to unmarked pirate ships and even cruise ships, which Urbina calls “a kind of gentrification of the ocean,” said Blair Braverman in a review for The Times. 

He said: “There is no clear solution to the ocean’s problems because our entire world — our economic system, our geography — is the cause. I’d always assumed the greatest threat to the ocean was the greed of the rich, but in fact it’s the desperation of the poor, which is, of course, the flip side of the same coin.” 

Braverman added: “As long as there is desperation, there will be exploitation. And people, good and bad, will always be able to use the ocean to disappear.”
