Priyanka flaunts Saudi label as Sophie Turner weds Joe Jonas in France

DUBAI: Hollywood actress Sophie Turner and pop sensation Joe Jonas tied the knot in Sarrians, France, on Saturday and family member Priyanka Chopra, who is married to Nick Jonas, celebrated by showing off a bevvy of Saudi designs.

Chopra and Jonas both stayed at the Château de Torreau, a restored 18th century castle where the wedding took place, and the Bollywood actress was spotted around the venue wearing multiple ensembles by Saudi fashion label Honayda.

The actress went casual in a button-down lilac shirt dress from the label’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection, but she ramped things up for the rehearsal dinner with an ivory strapless satin gown that featured a sweetheart line from the same collection.

The outfits were styled by Mimi Cuttrell, who regularly sources fashion from the Middle East for her celebrity clients.

Highlights from ‘The Silence is Still Talking,’ showing at Jeddah’s Athr Gallery

Here are some highlights from the Saudi artist Muhannad Shono’s ‘The Silence is Still Talking,’ showing at Jeddah’s Athr Gallery until September 5. 

‘Interpretations 01’

The Riyahd-based artist’s solo exhibition “explores ‘the word’ and its emergence,” according to the gallery’s promotional material. It continues Shono’s practice of pigment on paper: He ground charcoal ‘words’ to dust, then used inaudible sound waves to reform the words on paper.

‘The Silent Press’

The centerpiece of the show is this large installation, which consists of three conjoined pigment-on-paper scrolls, and which the gallery says “refers to the spoken silences of animate and inanimate practitioners of the free word that await patiently to be experienced.”

‘Interpretations 03’

The specks of pigment left by the charcoal after it has been manipulated by sound represent, the gallery suggests, “the nuance, context and depth of meaning that accompany each word as it reemerges” and also “the infinite possibilities of meaning.”
