Bella Hadid champions UAE jewelry label

DUBAI: Following a sun-filled holiday at St.Barth’s, part-Palestinian model Bella Hadid is back to work in megawatt style. The 23-year-old was spotted at the Art of Elysium Heaven is Rock and Roll Gala at the Hollywood Palladium this week, and for the occasion rocked a three-piece, black leather get-up that marked a refreshing departure from the traditional pantsuit.

With a little help from her longtime stylist Mimi Cutrell, Hadid made sure to turn heads by donning a pair of flared trousers with a form-fitting vest and a “Matrix” style blazer plucked from the Tommy Hilfiger x Zendaya collaboration. The California-bred beauty accessorized the show-stopping look with a matching Les Petits Joueurs cylindrical handbag and square-toed platform boots.

But it was hard to draw away attention from Hadid’s glimmering diamond earrings, courtesy of UAE jeweler Amwaj. Paired with a dazzling choker, the younger sister of Gigi proved that the quickest way to spice up a monochromatic outfit is with a little sparkle.

The luxury Emirati brand, which boasts stores in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, has also been championed by Olivia Wilde, Camila Cabello and Jennifer Lopez in recent weeks. Actress Kate Beckinsale donned a diamond-encrusted ring from the fine jewelry label for the Warner Bros. x InStyle Golden Globes after-party in Beverly Hills.

US rapper Kanye West to pay college tuition for George Floyd’s daughter

DUBAI: US rapper Kanye West on Thursday pledged to set up a college fund for the daughter of George Floyd, the African American who died at the hands of police.

Floyd’s longtime friend and former NBA (National Basketball Association) star Stephen Jackson shared a touching video this week on Instagram of Floyd’s daughter Gianna being carried on her uncle’s shoulders, smiling, and saying, “Daddy changed the world.”

According to CNN, father-of-four, West, has also donated $2 million toward helping fund the families and legal teams contesting the deaths of African Americans Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, and supporting black-owned businesses in crisis in his native Chicago and other cities.

Over recent days, the streets of New York, Los Angeles, London, Toronto, Paris, and more have witnessed celebrities and influencers standing together in solidarity with black communities.  

Meanwhile, other stars, such as 42-year-old West, have taken to their social media platforms to demand justice and draw attention to various organizations which help low-income protesters pay bail, or donation pages that directly benefit the family members of victims.

Earlier this week, Iraqi-American beauty entrepreneur Huda Kattan and actors Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds donated a hefty sum amid the #BlackLivesMatter protests.
