Blue Marlin Ibiza Rocks F1

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

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.

Grazia hosted its 5th annual style awards last week at the Ritz Carlton to toast the local fashion industry. Our blog of course was not nominated…BUT THEN AGAIN, why not give the little people a chance? Fashions, haves, have nots, and must haves were in full force making for delightful night, which of course ended at small after hours at mine. For the full list of winners click HERE.

Where’s the Glamour?

Sunday, May 1st, 2011

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…..

Upon closer inspection….

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….
