Turn Your Fall Into a Rise

I’m obsessed with this woman, and whenever Paz de la Huerta does anything I get super excited. That’s why I was shocked when I passed up this brilliant add campaign for winter 2011, was I dead? Agent Provocateur has had many spokes models, “Champagne Stars” as they are called including Kate Moss. But Paz my children, is a a match made in glamorous hot-mess heaven…

Blue Marlin Ibiza Rocks F1

We went through a REALLY boring period in 2011 with Dubai nightlife. I mean I had more fun staring at my pinky finger than to be dragged out to one of these places. Music…boring, crowd…ugly, drinks…I’m not drunk. Whose running this Sh*t? Yawn, yawn, yawn…. And as we all know, a slew of new venues have begun to open up at the end of the year, making 2012 truly the year of haves and have nots.

Now I’m also a bit tingled to know that Dr. Sati is back on the scene, the mastermind behind some of the biggest club names that initially put Dubai on the map as a party capital. Aiming to inject life back into into scene, we got a taste of his medicine at f1 for Blue Marlin Ibiza. Hitting the shores of the UAE this spring, this one is surely going to be a monster.

Under Attack

So I totally woke up in my luxurious bed today only to see THIS as my eyes opened.  I mean, I got the invite for the screening of Mission Impossible, but I didn’t realize it was outside my window. Mind you, I’m on the 60 something floor…

My second thought was, were we under attack??!! I lay there in my underwear, vision still a little blurry and I reached for my camera.

Then they kinda just stared at me for a while (picture above) then started wiping the window. It was all very dreamy, very Dubai. How was your morning?

Are Those Real?

They say the eyes are the windows to the soul…and don’t we usually just wanna buy everything in that window? Well now you can. Throw away those trashy contacts because now you can change your brown eyes to blue in less than twenty seconds.

A doctor in Laguna Beach, CA claims after ten years of research he can do it in a quick laser procedure. Click below to see video…

3D Movies the Correct Way

Ten Dirham 3D glasses at the movie theater are SO POOR! Gucci has created a pair of 3D glasses so you won’t have to look like everyone, or in some peoples case, have to look at anyone. Retailing at just under 1000 Dirhams, grab your pair today!

If you havent already…

Duran Duran’s new mega supermodel video “Girl Panic.”  Everyone should watch it at least once so you can feel a little more bad about yourself for aging and not looking this good…

The whole wasted in a hotel is a  bit cliched by now but I still kinda love it. Watch it here:

VOODOO MAGIC

So I don’t usually promote clubs unless I feel something special is happening, that or I’m completely wasted. This time I assure you its not the latter. Entering Voodoo, I was at first a bit confused, maybe caught off guard. Models on one table, society on another, fashionistas and street kids, killer music and live musical acts…was I in Dubai? How gritty, how glamorous..I kind of wanted to come again next week. All being said, Voodoo @ Media Rotana had taken all the right steps to give us something new. Lets hope they REALLY begin to bring it and give us a proper alternative to what has become a mundane Dubai club scene.

The Spirit of Giving

Now that the month of THINKING about the needy, and giving to the poor over, we can go back to what we do best..BUYING and TAKING! Even though I donated many thoughtful gifts to my driver, housekeeper,  and dry cleaner, some people really never thought this whole giving thing through. As I was walking through the mall by the charity bin, I saw the following items donated by my fellow fabulous Dubaians to the needy…..

Designer sunglasses…there’s nothing like last seasons shades for working in that hot summer sun.

A nice array of DVDs including a full season of friends…what are those plastic things on the bottom?

Boxed perfume gift sets galore! poor people smell!

Face steamers and hair straighteners….for all that frizz, grit, and grime.

Who needs encyclopedias…last but not least, some intellectual beach reading. In conclusion, when sometimes there’s little light at the end of the tunnel for some folks, its the small comforts in life that can really keep them going…keep on giving Dubai.

Donatella Versace Interviews Riccardo Tisci

Fashion always needs an injection of youth every now and then to maintain its relevance and with a slew of new and young blood at most major design houses no one has done it better than Givenchy’s Ricardo Tisci.  Shot here by Steven Klein for Interview Magazine

Rabid dogs are SO chic. OBSESSSED with the above. Check out the  question answer session conducted by none other then nose fueled Donatella Versace, where Tisci describes his love of women, his love of — and his love of, well, Donatella. Click HERE for the full article.

Mr.Dubai 2011 Crowned

Ok normally I would NEVER EVER post the below as it will only encourage these people but I thought you should know as fellow Dubaians. Your Mr. Dubai has been crowned. Apparently 19 contestants competed for this lucritive position, with prize money of *drum roll please* ……. 5000 AED (1,300 USD) grand prize. I didn’t bother reading the rest so not sure what else was involved but if your dying to know click HERE.

Check out the poser in the green, he looks like a winner… The contest claimed “20 able bodied Dubai men will strut their stuff for the final round.”

http://lastniteindubai.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/danceoff.jpg

Did you guys even know this was going on?? Some type of final dance off.

http://lastniteindubai.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/judges.jpg

Who are these judges? Why didn’t anyone call me.

http://lastniteindubai.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/finalits.jpg

It was a real NAILBITER, these were the finalists…

http://lastniteindubai.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/6.jpg

The winner…He wanted world peace and is an aspiring Bollywood actor. Someone definitely lied to the poor guy. As a closing statement I’d like to add this…Dubai is a cosmopolitan metropolis of wealth, fashion, and travel for the region. It is now on the world stage as a destination and a city to be reckoned with. Does the above really make us proud? For more on this story click HERE.

Image Nation Turns One

It was one of those weekends that started on Wednesday, and not sure when exactly it ended. Let’s just say by the time I got to Image Nation’s 1st Anniversary Party at Benkay on Friday, the new hot spot on the 49th floor of the JAL Hotel, there were a LOT of pictures of the floor in my camera. Nevertheless I do remember the music to be absolutely AMAZING as the dance floor was on fire, and the crowd beautiful and JUST RIGHT! Image Nation has quickly become a force to be reckoned with. Congrats Ayman and Dipesh. Here are a few pictures I salvaged.

Puspa’s Masquerade Ball

I had just flown into town and I was so NOT up for going to another party…but  it was Puspa’s birthday and she, by far is one of my favorite superficialites in town. So I put on  my mask hand delivered by one of Puspa’s minions, had a shot of tequila and was ready to go.The party itself was STUNNING with a warehouse in Al-Qouz transformed into a sultry venetian set from the  likes of Phantom of the Opera. I LOVED….

From Paris to Dubai

I seriously CAN’T with her anymore…I would rather be caught dead in Carefour buying shoes than to be seen at Ibn Battuta Mall at the Paris Hilton Store. I miss the old Paris that would stumble out of clubs drunk and say dumb and funny things on the red carpet. Now shes just a big fat/skinny corporate machine. BORED with it. We want Nicole Richie…

I LOVE LOVE this.

The Tamara Al Gabbani Launch

So what if her website is full of pictures of herself, she’s HOT….and she can. Sizzling regional designer Tamara Al Gabanni launched her first collection at Prive with a refreshing show. Models walked down stairs to the club and through a super chic crowd seated at tables studded with martinis and mini cupcakes. Drawing from the Grecian goddesses, Gabbani decadently draped her models effortlessly with fabrics and styles fit for any ultra lux party.

MTV does Dubai IT Girl?

Can someone please CALL me and tell me who THIS is? PLEASE? I just want to let her know that her faux crocodile skin bag under her plastic hangers with her Versace Jeans is faux python. Oh and those watches… the 1990′s just BBM’d me, it wants its wardrobe back. I also want to let her know that Sanctuary is NOT a place to be seen at, let alone throw a “mega” birthday bash at.This thing is painfully comedic, you’ll want to watch every last drop. Its so vulgar I’m beginning to like her. The only thing that redeems this self proclaimed IT girl is her looks….

I Smell Tom Ford

How crisp and fresh…don’t you just want to run out to the store and buy a bottle? A really big one to bathe in? Or better yet don’t you want to see the rest of this add without it being cut off!? Simple, go here and type in Neroli Portofino. Can this website be anymore interactive?

I actually did the above a couple weekends ago in Istanbul…IN OTHER TOM FORD NEWS, the designer releases his ESSENTIALS LIST. A document ALL should print out and LIVE by. I cannot stress how important this is…

Burnt Out & Recharged

So I haven’t posted in a while, SHOOT ME…..with my own camera. I was just completely bored with everything…too much effort, too much exertion, too much champagne, not enough beautiful people. I had had my fill. I fell to certain depths where I found myself sipping a martini at Armani, a group huddled together even asked me to snap their pix, happy faces, peace signs and all. I looked at at them for about ten seconds, then looked the other way. It was VERY unbecoming. I felt very sorry for them. People please do not EVER ask me to take a group picture.  I went abroad for a couple of weekends, I thumbed through fashion mags while sipping my whiskey on the rocks, I would pass out next to my pool, it was all very rejuvenating. Now Lastniteindubai is back…and probably with a vengeance.

Double Dipping With Liza & Vesna

I got a message from Vesna who had been stuck in India for the last 10 days…her and Liza were celebrating their birthdays together…the theme: PAJAMA/LINGERIE pool party on the BEACH. I think it was time for her to get back home. I was confused, yet I dug out my 70′s Dior robe, silk pajamas, and a box of cigars. The party of course did take place in all its glory, squirt guns and all. It was a wild, wild affair…with most pictures I could never post. Happy birthday Liza and Vesna.

Where’s the Glamour?

http://lastniteindubai.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/011.jpg

Can someone PLEASE tell me what happened to Dubai Fashion Week??? The line up was great, the catwalks were average, but the venue and setup?? I walked into the place and it was like a horrible trade show gone wrong. There where strange booths selling arts and crafts and the whole place was lit by……………..FLUORESCENT LIGHTING. I looked down the isle and was caught off guard, Mercedes Benz is sponsoring Dubai Fashion Week? How Bryant Park…..

http://lastniteindubai.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/132.jpgit

Upon closer inspection….

http://lastniteindubai.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/121.jpg

Then I saw the second sponsors…blow dryers! Enough was enough….I quickly walked to the HSY show(in the next post), the only show I attended, which by the way was amazing as usual. As for Dubai Fashion Week, it needs SERIOUS peroxide. Especially since RUMOR has it, a very BIG contender will be entering the scene this fall….

HSY @ Dubai Fashion Week

The world lost one of its last truly classic Hollywood stars today at the age of 79. An unforgettable woman, and legendary movie star, she was an advocate for many humanitarian causes, and an adamant supporter of AIDS research helping to start up amfAR as well as  her own organization, The Elizabeth Taylor Aids Foundation .  A WO MANIZER in her own right, She was an empowered woman marrying 7 times.

Vanity Fair Disses Dubai

I love Vanity Fair but not TODAY. Why you ask, because it has allowed someone to print such a bias and sensationalized article on our beloved glittering Dubai. Yes, one or two points are valid. For the most part, the article is thickly layered with stereo types and gooey unsupported data by a writer that seems to have spent most of his time in a disenchanted taxi lost in a dust storm on its way to the Dubai World Cup. One of the best stories in the article “man arrested for farting near a woman,” I mean really Vanity Fair? LAME LAME LAME.  Second best line in the article “And if you ever wondered what money would look like if it were left to its own devices, it’s Dubai.” …..OBVIOUSLY….don’t hate our glamour. I wouldn’t normally post a link to an article like this…but then again, curiosity killed the cat. Click HERE

DETOXIFICATION

Last week was absolute DEBOUCH! I think I slept 9 hours.. the WHOLE WEEK. In between the parties, yachts, and after after parties, I feel an itch in my liver and a tickle in my kidneys. Its total detox and diet time…. I’ve locked my self up in the house for three days and stuffed my fridge from the organic supermarket. I see the glittery gold bottles of champagne behind the wheat bread and heads of lettuce I plan on eating. I’VE BEEN PACING BACK AND FORTH STARING AT THE CEILING NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELF. GO OUT? I CANT DRINK…STAY HOME AND SLEEP AGAIN, AT THE POTENTIAL RISK OF GETTING FAT? This is all so confusing. What do regular people do all day???

DESERT FISH presents PISCES BALL

Desert Fish Magazine, the brainchild of Shub Qureshi and fashion photographer Peter Richweisz inaugurated their brand spanking new space with an unforgettable party. There was no pretension, which I don’t mind in Dubai when i just want to let my non-existent hair down. Just pure unadulterated fun, fashion, and rock and roll. One of those parties in a massive warehouse you see in the movies, except in Al-Qouz. A scene only Desert Fish could put together….

The Tourani Anniversary

Last week we descended upon Mahesh and Rekha Tourani’s anniversary party at their Emirates Hills estate. Though there were several other events that day (nothing as fabulous), this WAS where the real party was at with two of the most decadent and gracious hosts in Dubai. From the deluxe cream of Dubai to Bollywood fashion royalty, everyone celebrated this unforgettable couple, partying into the sunset…

Summer is just a couple weeks away in Dubai…do I need any better excuse to post this burning hot editorial?

LEAVE HER ALONE…

John Galliano releases his first public statement and is headed to rehab. Click HERE to read it. Heads at Dior have been trying to get rid of her for a while, but they didn’t have to orchestrate such a big scandal to do so? People in that video talking to Galliano that night didn’t really sound offended or even upset by his verbal aggression, they actually sounded amused and were laughing.  If I was drunk and being harassed by ugly people, I would have probably acted the same mindless way in JOKE. Someone that is responsible for such FIERCENESS as the below, can easily be forgiven….

STATEMENT:

“Since the events of last Thursday evening I have not been able to make any public comment on what took place based upon advice from my French lawyer. However, given the continuing delays at the French Prosecutor’s Office I should make my position clear.

I completely deny the claims made against me and have fully co-operated with the Police investigation.

A number of independent witnesses have given evidence and have told the Police that I was subjected to verbal harassment and an unprovoked assault when an individual tried to hit me with a chair having taken violent exception to my look and my clothing. For these reasons I have commenced proceedings for defamation and the threats made against me.

However, I fully accept that the accusations made against me have greatly shocked and upset people.

I must take responsibility for the circumstances in which I found myself and for allowing myself to be seen to be behaving in the worst possible light. I only have myself to blame and I know that I must face up to my own failures and that I must work hard to gain people’s understanding and compassion. To start this process I am seeking help and all I can hope for in time is to address the personal failure which led to these circumstances and try and earn people’s forgiveness.

I have fought my entire life against prejudice, intolerance and discrimination having been subjected to it myself. In all my work my inspiration has been to unite people of every race, creed, religion and sexuality by celebrating their cultural and ethnic diversity through fashion. That remains my guiding light.

Anti-Semitism and racism have no part in our society. I unreservedly apologise for my behaviour in causing any offence.”

MUST HAVE: iPad 2

Apple finally releases its second generation iPad, something many have been holding out for. I personally have one, but they are great to have MORE lying around the house to peruse pictures and read magazines on. Thinner, lighter, and with two cameras, Apple has added everything that was missing in the first.

I’m sure you’ll be able to get it in Dubai for DOUBLE the price  starting March 10th…small price to pay for having it FIRST. For more info click HERE.

Splish Splash S/S 2011

If Splash can do one thing, its BRINGING IT ON. After each show, in conjunction with BRAG, they throw down a party like no other in this town…and I love every second of it. From what I can remember anyway. An open bar for like 3000 people all night long, and a “heavenly white” theme promoting peace and love, you couldn’t really ask for anything more…

Eww, is that a bus???

LOVE…

The walk, a relief from the straight and mundane…

Ami Winehouse in Dubai

Amy Winehouse didn’t disappoint singing a whole six songs followed by an array of spectacular fireworks. Hey we needed to get some value for those 1000 dirham tickets.The show included everything from sporadic face twitches to Amy trying to pull her finger nails out on stage. She even forgot her own lyrics, what a HOT MESS! We loved every second of it. Photo courtesy of Naz

HOT TRAX: Lady Gaga BORN THIS WAY

I was really looking forward to this…but after first listen, its really a track trying too hard to be an anthem when its NOT. With lines like “you’re Lebanese, you’re orient”  and ” don’t be a drag, be a queen” is all very I want to click NEXT.  I was definitely not born that way… sounds more like an over produced 80′s track mixed in with a little ” Express Yourself “by Madonna. Releasing in a couple of hours, you can listen to GAGA’s new single HERE. Lets hope the rest of the album is BETTER!

Weekend Warrior

My thoughts exactly at this moment laying hungover (both senses of the word) in bed at the end of this weekend. Apparently its already Tuesday. “Work” days go by so quickly in our glittering little city as weekend eve, Thursday rolls around again. Its times like these that I LOVE all your emails and messages…. so keep laying it on me (info@lastniteindubai.com)  In my drunken debauchery I have lost the wires that connect my camera to my laptop, so I cannot fulfill your appetites with the buttery goodness of my photos…come to think of it, I’ve also broken four cameras in the process. But hey, I’m in it for the love of the game. AREN’T WE ALL? More deliciousness coming as soon as I get rewired.

From left to right:  Jennifer Lawrence, Anthony Mackie, Olivia Wilde, Jesse Eisenberg, Mila Kunis, Robert Duvall, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Andrew Garfield, Rashida Jones, Garrett Hedlund and Noomi Rapace.

A Very Dirty 30

Eww…we just turned thirty. In our market segment this means 50. People STOP telling me that your 30s are when you finally know what you want…I knew what I wanted when I was 6, except now I can just purchase it online. I know what I DON’T want, and that is making extra trips to Dr. Troy in Jumeirah for injections in my face and a refill on my prescriptions.

Anyways we sent out a notice that NOTHING special need be planned for this milestone, yet we were still inundated with lovely gifts like round trips to RIO and midnight cake cutting ceremonies in art infested apartments. Here’s a quick recap of the week, all of which was UNPLANNED…PS thank you ALL  for the amazing gifts and wishes.

How glamorous, how A-list.  A single meal will set you back around AED 350, while an appetizer around AED 180, but who cares! Your on top of the world. Stay tuned for the restaurant review in our new feature, BITE ME. I’ve heard the view is to die for and so is the fois gras…

TOM FORD TOM FORD TOM FORD

OMG! i want to roll around in it and DIE!  The glamouristic perfection, the chic-ness..Tom Ford is a BEAST! The high priestess Anna Wintour, Juliane Moore, Terry Richards shooting, Beyonce, Daphine Guiness, a slew of top models, even Richard Buckly…all so quaint, yet so unattainable.WATCH IT!!

Calvin Klein S/S 2011

Remember in high school when Calvin Klein was really cool and gritty, and childlike models were used in overt positions. Or if you’re really old, you’ll remember Brook Shields with the popular phrase, “nothing comes between me and my Calvins” plastered all over time square. The video above really isnt pushing any envelopes but its ultra chic and maybe i’m beginning to like the CK again….Plus that house is a MUST HAVE…

In the White Sauce

Did I ever mention how much I love Raza Beig? His parties are delicious in every which way… Don’t hate yourself if you’ve never been, actually hate yourself a little bit. Anyway the CEO, as we will now refer to him threw a magical little escapade at his villa on the palm for the former Miss Universe LARA DUTTA and all of her bollywood girlfriends, 12 to be exact. Partying early into the morning, we didn’t end up leaving until the sun was almost coming up over the Atlantis. What a fabulous time, in true CEO fashion. We couldn’t have asked for anything more….

Splash 2011 Calendar Launch

Splash launched its ultra exclusive 2011 Calendar at the Royal Mirage and anything that Spalsh does in collaboration with Brag doesn’t disappoint. The theme was black and white and the event was anything but. The party was a fabulously eccentric with mix of fashionistas and superficialites which was a sniff of fresh air for the new year. The Royal Mirage grew absolutely electric as the night grew on….

JET SET: Cosmopolitan Las Vegas

I LOVE the new adds for the just opened Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. With decadent glamorous old Hollywood debauchery vibe,  this place seems right up our alley. The hotel has already become a hit with a no holds bar attitude, chic restaurants and bars, vibrant art spaces, and of course the infamous Vegas pool cabanas.I’m so bored with tacky carpeted family hotels, can we build some of these here?

Da Diet

So the 48 hour champagne diet didn’t really work…i’m currently bed ridden with constant trips to the bathroom to make out with the toilet. Not chic at all…or is it? There are several parties to attend tonight and hopefully ill manage. Here are a couple tips if your in the same situation and need a quick and easy recovery.

My side table consists of the following:

  1. Lots and lots of MINERAL water
  2. Soup (after everything has cleared)
  3. Remote control (for anything in the room that can be controlled by one finger)
  4. Buzzer for the house keeper
  5. Gaviscon (the best for that nasty alcoholic heart burn)
  6. Jelly Babies (to keep your sugar level up)

Secondly keep everything nice and comfy, and items easily accessible. Make sure to spray your self before leaving the bathroom. I prefer Tom Ford’s Tuscan Leather. Its so homely:

Maybe i did lose some kilos. If you see me tonight know i’m not fully functioning.

Moët & Chandon @ the Rooftop

I’m on a  48 hour champagne diet! Moët & Chandon celebrated cinema for the Dubai Film Festival. I’m not sure how I was delivered home in the morning but the party was hot! The crowd was sexy, great  music, and enough champs for even Linsday Lohan. I woke up in the morning with a black Moet band on my hand with little white writing….it read “BE FABULOUS” and it was.

Midnight Recovery by Kiehl’s

Though it was two weeks ago, I still had to post it as it was a majorly hot event. Taking place at chic space that is Capital D Studio, Kiehl’s launched its midnight recovery serum. How appropriate for Dubai, as we all need to dab this lotion potion on after a Dubai night.I swear by their products as any visitor to my illustrious bathroom would know. Not to mention the photo exhibition by Ayaad Damouni “At the Stroke of Midnight” which was on display and up for auction for the Make A Wish Foundation. Even famed jewelry designer De Grisogono and entourage showed up. It was another hot event by Image Nation.

Fitri’s Roaring 20′s Bash

I love playing dress up…and play time was at the ever fabulous Fitri Hay’s birthday bash in Emirates Hills. With a never ending red carpet, paparazzi , funky jazz, 20′s dancers and skinny models smoking out of cigarette holders…it was a roaring good time.  The illuminated dance floor was burning all night with tap shoes and stilettos while others puffed cigars at the bar. The crowd was A-list and gorgeous, and the music so chic. We loved it all!

Launching Rolling Stone Magazine

We were caught by surprise when a rock and roll legacy like Rolling Stone magazine decided to launch its middle east edition. Showing up a bit late due to slight wardrobe malfunction we were taken aback by the energy. Brilliant music, hot setup..the party  truly exuded pure rock and roll glamour done right! The new Gramercy Bar in DIFC was converted into a shrine for Rolling Stones Magazine and all things rock, with the help of Chic Alors! and Image Nation. It was truly a rocking night and something Dubai hasn’t seen for a while.

The walls were framed with classic Rolling Stone covers….

Essa: Backstage & Beyond

Starving delicious fabulosity! Designer Essa tore up the catwalk with savage prints, devastatingly blinged out crystal embellishments and a ferocious play of colors that only Essa could do…an epitome of glittering Dubai! I died for every second of it. The crowd was hot, from the style kids to the establishment, everyone showed their homage to one the regions design superstars. I’m  not going to mention what most were wearing below because it was Essa, Essa, Essa!

Fashion Days: DAS

I met the DAS girls during  an event dinner last year and fell in love. Their personalities are as infectious as their fashion and passion for abayas. Of course I was expecting an off the  wall collection that most designers with traditional clothing do, but the difference with DAS this season caught me off guard. The abayas were infused with the  studded shoulders, metallic sequins and criss-cross layering, yet holding their cultural stability and extremely wearable. There was that avant-garde piece with white ruffles and bow tie which I loved, but then again, I’m a stickler for bow ties.

JET SET: Setai Miami

Dubai has its share of ultra-glam getaways, but i’m kinda yawning….maybe because i’m bored of drinking too much champagne at the same penthouse  suites  and stumbling out looking for my ride at 8 am…then again probably not.

Lets face it, with all this luxe glamor we need a break…….to other cities with luxe glamor! Thus Lastniteindubai.com presents JET SET, a weekly insight into the hot, sexy, and chic places to stay when you want to get away. Some you may know, some you may not…

For more pictures and info on having sexalicious good time read on…I think the pix would have been better with a bunch of bikini clad chicas and some latin cabana boys…but ok.

Just like the tub I have in my garden!

Good times

If you like to read:

The Setai is an intimate, serene oceanfront resort although it is  in the heart of South Beach, at the north end of Miami’s historic Art Deco District. Its design combines the rich architectural history of the neighborhood and its cultural diversity with the International Art Deco movement, particularly its influence in Asia. Infused with natural materials, space and light, The Setai has the unmistakable imprint of legendary hotelier Adrian Zecha.

The Art Deco landmark building was originally built between 1936 – 1938 as the famed Dempsey Vanderbilt Hotel. Next to it is the 40-story glass tower.The Setai comprises two buildings, different yet built on the same foundations of superlative service and exceptional design. The  details of each guest room are exemplified by authentic jade pieces that were discovered in the antique markets of China and displayed to perfection on teak walls.  The rooms are spacious, stunning and serene. The Art Deco building is an exquisitely refurbished property that celebrates its history while embracing Asian influences. The suites in The Tower are an experience of melding of the space and vision.

There are three azure pools, each maintained at a separate temperature. At the gates of the property lie the white sand beach..The Spa at The Setai transports the traditions of the Pacific Rim to South Beach.Each suite at the spa has ocean and pool views, a private bath and steam room. Setai has also restaurant and bars for every mood:  Grill or a more formal dinner at The Restaurant,  or The Bar. They all have innovative food, exceptional wine list and great service.

Scarfing Hermes

Following London, Paris, Tokyo, and New York, Hermes launched its new campaign “I love my scarf” in Cuadro Gallery.

Up & Coming: Tahir Sultan

I wish it was wintry outside so I could prepare myself a hot chocolate with tons of Baileys and throw on one of Tahir Sultan’s magical creations. Starting his label less than a year ago, this Kuwaiti designer has already been recognized by the likes of Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, and  Vogue.


Something Pocahontas and Alice would come up with if they were best friends and  knew how to knit. Sultan uniquily creates color pallets that designers only flirt with in the summer and then luxuriously drapes them like no other. So magical yet so chic…we love this shit. CLICK FOR MORE

Hot Trax: Hurts

This album is so 80s it hurts. With their debut album ‘Happiness’ Hurt’s explodes on to the scene with melancholy synthpop and lyrical cliches reminiscent of the Pet Shop Boys , Duran Duran, and Erasure. And though we are culturally doomed to repeat what once was, Hurts does it amazingly right. With massive choruses, synthesized electronica, and spoonful of sorrow with style, ‘Happiness’ is a sexy album worth checking out…

Window Shopping

Whoever designs the storefronts at Harvey Nichols Dubai needs to die (not literally). Seriously, let me roll up some construction paper into cones and glue it to the floor. I love shopping at HN but I had to say something because this has been going on for too long, and not just here..but other luxury stores. Dubai is glamour, its sexy,  its a shopping destination…. step it up.

The Tourani Warm Up

House warming was an understatement for Mahesh and Rekha’s new pad in Emirates Hills. The place had an entire bar…lounge……no CLUB attached to the house. The evening started innocently enough, mingling and socializing, and then we were escorted to the “pool bar.”

As cases of bottles popped and shot after shot poured down our throats in true Tourani fashion, the stunning bar became even more electrifying. Throbbing music, a bar especially built to dance on…. it was a party so great you couldn’t remember it the next day.

You haven’t partied until you’ve partied with Mahesh and Rekha. I ADORE them….

The real thing…

Splash Fashion A/W 2010 & Afterparty

Brag and Raza throw the most delicious events don’t they? Commanded by the theme of “Fashion Revolution” Splash took it to another level.

Jam packed traffic at the Madinat

Everyone was gagging to get it in…but everyone was not on the list….

I’m in the mood for a little charity auction, a fabulous dinner party, and then Mark Ronson spinning at Trilogy tonight. Let’s hope Trilogy is what it once was….

The world has a new billionaire. Mexican tycoon Carlo Slim Helu has beaten out Americans Bill Gates and Warren Buffett to become the wealthiest person on earth and nab the top spot on the 2010 Forbes list of the World’s Billionaires.You would think Dubai had a few since we are a ball of opulence and decadence. I guess they just hide out here.

Dinner with Spacey

I had the pleasure of having dinner with Kevin Spacey at Zuma  last night with a group of very special people. Can’t post any pictures, but I can say he was very funny and intelligent man. Even after being so jet lagged,  he took time to speak to all of us…I just couldn’t get the American Beauty scene out of my head while speaking to him.

Why eat anymore when you can just inhale…the product I’ve been waiting all my life! Le Whif is a new approach to eating developed by a Harvard Professor in collaboration with Art Science Labs.You inhale the small lipstick sized container into your mouth and taste thousands of food particles without a single calorie! Comes in different chocolate flavors as well as coffee with a kick of caffeine.

Inhaling is the new eating…sexy. Click picture for more…

Kentucky Derby?

So I’m thumbing through the Dubai fashion/social mags and looking at some of these people that are considered style icons or best dressed. Are these mags serious?  Sorry people, money cannot buy style…well actually sometimes it can, but for the most part NO. Hire a stylist if you have to (there are plenty of good ones here) but please STOP showing up to events looking like your about to go to tacky horse race.

So I’m having a drink with mr. and mr. as the Ahlan Hot 100 party tees off at the Montgomery.  Some random woman approaches me and puts a black band with some weird crystallized number around my hand. “You’ve been selected to go up on stage and get your outfit judged by our panel of experts as one of the best dressed at the party” I should have saved myself the embarrassment.
