DUBAI: British supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whitelely visited Dubai to interview US-Iraqi entrepreneur Huda Kattan for her new Quibi series “About Face.”
The six-part show, which launched on Aug. 10, focuses on business development and entrepreneurship in the beauty industry.
In the series’ trailer, which the 33-year-old model posted on her Instagram, Huntington-Whiteley can be seen strolling on the Palm Jumeirah.
“I’m on my way to meet one of the most iconic make-up artists in the world,” she says, before asking Kattan: “So how do you build a billion-dollar beauty brand in the Middle East?”
The 36-year-old Kattan, who founded her eponymous beauty empire Huda Beauty in 2013, is among several of the high-profile guests and beauty entrepreneurs who will join Huntington-Whitely, including cosmetics mogul Kylie Jenner, Glossier chief executive Emily Weiss, South Korean beauty influencer Park Hye-min, celebrity make-up artist Sir John and hairstylist Jen Atkin.
Huntington-Whiteley’s series on the American short-form streaming platform was announced in December last year.
The model is an executive producer on the show, alongside Lily Berg. Also working on the project is Alfred Street Industries, the production company behind “Project Runway.”
