Simi, Haze Khadra take Las Vegas by storm

DUBAI: Despite the popular phrase, what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas — especially when it comes to weddings. This week, US-Palestinian twins and DJ duo Simi and Haze Khadra attended the nuptials of their friend, British model and designer Zizi Donohoe, who tied the knot to Lebanese-Canadian musician Patrick “P-Thugg” Gemayel, in Nevada.

Naturally, the duo, whose real names are Sama and Haya, were among the best dressed wedding guests at the celebrations. Simi opted for a black, heart-shaped crop top from Tbilisi-based fashion designer George Keburia. She paired the statement top with a matching long skirt and a pair of elbow-length, feather-trimmed gloves.

For her part, Haze wore a black mini dress, which she accessorized with pointed toe pumps and long opera gloves. 

The Palestinian-born sisters, who grew up between Saudi Arabia and the UAE, attended the Las Vegas nuptials with their older brother Fai Khadra, who has made a name for himself as a popular plus one. 

“Family affair,” the duo wrote on Instagram.

Fai first made waves when he accompanied model and reality television star Kendall Jenner to Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin’s wedding in September 2018. Before fans got any ideas about the pair as a potential couple, Jenner posted a disclaimer alongside their selfie at the Bieber nuptials captioned, “We don’t date, he’s just my date.’

For Halloween in 2018, Jenner and Khadra dressed as a Fembot and Austin Powers, posing for pictures which she duly posted on Instagram. 

He’s also quite close with Jenner’s younger sister Kylie, who recently went on two vacations with the US-Palestinian multi-hyphenate. 

For the Donohoe and Gemayel wedding, Fai looked dapper wearing a double-breasted eggplant-colored, pinstriped suit.

“Shotgun wedding! Congratulations @zizidonohoe @peethugg,” he captioned a post on Instagram.

He posed for pictures with his sisters, who count the likes of Gigi and Bella Hadid, Selena Gomez and Rita Ora as part of their glamorous girl gang.

The identical twins have been regulars at fashion weeks since they were just 14-years-old — as buyers for their mother Rula’s Riyadh-based boutique, The Art of Living.

They went on to garner an impressive social media following for their stand-out street style looks and penchant for all things vintage.

DUBAI: US TikTok star Addison Rae stepped out in a pair of heels by Lebanese footwear designer Andrea Wazen this week.

The Beirut-based designer, who is the younger sister of Lebanese fashion influencer Karen Wazen,  launched her eponymous, celebrity-approved label in 2013 following stints with some of the most renowned footwear designers in the world, including Christian Louboutin and Rupert Sanderson. 

The designer’s impressive list of celebrity clientele covers a broad spectrum of stars, from Hailey Bieber to Tracee Ellis Ross and Jennifer Lopez to Kylie Jenner, who have all donned Andrea Wazen’s strappy sandals and stilettos.

Rae, who rose to fame doing fun-to-replicate dances, opted for the Immy mules in multi-color. The fanciful footwear features mesh lined with leather  and a cone-shaped heel. She paired it with a bright yellow sweater and mom jeans. 

It’s not the first time the 20-year-old has been seen rocking an Andrea Wazen design. 

Last month, the Tik Tok star shared an Instagram Story with her 33.2 million followers in which she was spotted wearing clear pointy-toed shoes with white-strap detailing, called the Dassy PVC pumps. 

She styled the shoes with a white shirt dress from French luxury label Louis Vuitton that featured large pockets on the sides and was tied at the waist with a matching belt.

Indeed, Rae seems to be a fan of the Wazen family’s businesses. 

In recent months, she’s also been seen wearing  sunglasses by Karen Wazen Eyewear, including a pair of “Vicky” in navy blue shades from Karen’s line, which launched in December 2018.

Meanwhile, Rae isn’t the only star who has fallen head over heels for Andrea Wazen. 

US actress Emma Roberts recently donned a blush, floral Ganni dress paired with shoes by Lebanese footwear designer.

She opted for the Denver Lavender pumps, a pair of mesh sandals with an adjustable buckle strap.

“The Kissing Booth” star Joey King is also a fan. 

The 21-year-old was spotted wearing the 90s-inspired Gloria mules for a recent press event in Los Angeles. She paired the mules with a top and matching leggings from New York-based label Lirika Matoshi and a By Far bag.
