DUBAI: This weekend, celebrities gathered on the Caribbean island of St. Bart's to attend Victoria’s Secret model Devon Windsor’s wedding at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc.

Among the guests at the beach-front nuptials, where Windsor and her longtime partner Johnny Dex Barbara tied the knot, was Saudi-Pakistani-Lithuanian-Australian beauty Shanina Shaik who wore a single-shouldered, teal gown and a plunging black top paired with an emerald silk skirt to the multi-day-long celebrations.

Shaik also turned heads in a silky, cream-colored slip dress from Australian label Manning Cartel for a pre-wedding bash that preceded the ceremony. “Not raining on the bride’s parade,” she shared on Instagram, “It was an all-white party.”

Fans of the Melbourne native will recall her destination wedding to Gregory “DJ Ruckus” Andrews in the Bahamas in May 2018. However, the 28-year-old model, who was born to a Saudi-Pakistani father and a Lithuanian-Australian mother, recently filed for a divorce after one-year of marriage due to “irreconcilable differences.”

Meanwhile, for her big day, Windsor chose a custom lace creation by Lebanese couturier Zuhair Murad to tie the knot with her longtime beau. The blushing bride said “I do” wearing an off-the-shoulder mermaid gown that boasted floral lace detailing, illusion panels on the arms and a long train that swept out from behind her as she walked arm-in-arm with her father who led her down the aisle. The model teamed the sheer dress with a floor-training veil worn over her brushed out, bombshell waves. Simple yet elegant, the look was perfect for a chic, beach-front wedding.

Later on, the bride changed into a sparkling white romper with a skirt for her reception. One video posted by Shaik shows Windsor being carried in her new husband’s arms. “Congratulations @devwindor & @johnnydex (sic),” wrote Shaik, “So much love!”

The Caribbean island plays a significant role in the newly-weds’ love story. Windsor and Barbara have been engaged since 2018, after the newly-minted groom proposed to the 25-year-old model by flying her over St. Bart’s beach on a plane where she saw the words “Marry Me?” inscribed into the sand.

She wrote on Instagram at the time: “When you think you’re flying into a photoshoot and then you look down and see this...This was the best day of my life and I cannot wait to marry the best person in the whole universe! I’m the luckiest woman in the world!”

The wedding was attended by family and friends. Some of the A-list guests present at the nuptials included models Georgia Fowler, Nadine Leopold, Olivia Culpo and Hannah Ferguson, who have been documenting the sun-filled celebrations on Instagram.

There was also a special performance from Jamaican rapper and singer Sean Paul that had guests dancing the night away.  


Depp says wife-beating claim made him ‘Quasimodo’

Depp says wife-beating claim made him ‘Quasimodo’

  • The High Court trial revolves around a 2018 headline in The Sun asking how JK Rowling could be happy casting ‘wife-beater’ Depp in a ‘Fantastic Beasts’ film
  • Johnny Depp: ‘I went from Cinderella into Quasimodo in 0.6 seconds and I was without a voice’

LONDON: Hollywood legend Johnny Depp on Friday accused Britain’s The Sun tabloid of turning him from “Cinderella into Quasimodo” by claiming he beat his ex-wife Amber Heard.
The first week of Depp’s star-studded libel trial against the paper’s publisher and executive editor drew to a close with the 57-year-old denying hurling a champagne bottle and a phone at his former wife.
Depp claims charges compiled by Heard over a tumultuous two-year marriage that ended in 2017 were a “hoax” designed to advance her career at his expense.
The “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor said Thursday he was so often high or strung out on drugs that he was “in no condition” to hurt the 34-year-old model and film star.
The High Court trial revolves around a 2018 headline in The Sun asking how JK Rowling could be happy casting “wife-beater” Depp in a “Fantastic Beasts” film.
Depp said the headline altered his Hollywood image and endangered his career.
“I went from Cinderella into Quasimodo in 0.6 seconds and I was without a voice,” he told the court.
“That’s where I was in my life at that point.”
Cinderella is a beautiful fairy tale princess and Quasimodo the disfigured protagonist of Victor Hugo’s novel “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”
Depp looked more confident and engaged on the fourth day of the three-week trial than he appeared at its start.
He listened alertly in an olive suit and verbally clashed with publisher News Group Newspapers’ (NGN) lawyer Sasha Wass in an attempt to refute her various charges.
Wass has gone chronologically through each of Depp’s 14 alleged assaults and other abuses.
She attempted on Friday to complete her depiction of the US superstar as self-centered and out of touch with reality due to debilitating drug abuse.
Depp countered that it was Heard who was chronically looking for a fight.
He said he went to read in bed on the night of Heard’s 30th birthday party because “I was trying to avoid another confrontation with Ms Heard about something that didn’t go exactly as she wanted or had planned.”
Depp turned up for the party two hours late because of a difficult business meeting about a financial dispute.
But Wass said Depp was fuming because Heard had pointed out one of his character faults.
“And the argument picked up pace and you picked up the bottle of champagne and you threw it at Ms Heard. And it missed and the bottle hit the wall and it smashed,” the lawyer said.
“And that, I suggest, is how you express yourself when you are angry, you smash things,” the lawyer said.
Depp denied this happened and countered: “I disagree.”
The couple’s marriage was all but over by the time Heard accused Depp of hitting her in the face with a phone in May 2016.
Wass said Depp “wound up like a baseball pitcher” and threw it at his wife at one of their mansions while one of Heard’s friends was on the other line.
Depp denied this but admitted that Heard asked the friend to call the police.
He also said the security on site witnessed how the entire episode was staged.
“She was screaming ‘stop hitting me, Johnny!, stop hitting me, Johnny!’, and the security came and she was still screaming... and I was 20 feet away getting something from the fridge,” Depp said.
“And then (one of the guards) said boss, let’s get out of here.”
Wass’ cross-examination ended with a 30-minute private session in which reporters were asked to leave the courtroom.
The actor’s attorney David Sherborne then took over by directly asking whether Depp had ever hit a woman.
“Never, no sir,” Depp replied.
Sherborne also got Depp to confirm that no other woman had alleged abuse in his past relationships.
