Emirates Woman Turns 30

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Emirates Woman celebrated its 30th anniversary last week at Media One Hotel. The venue was industrial chic, and the crowd was industrial HOT. Besides the fact, I have currently become OBSESSED with this magazine. From sizzling fashion editorials to smart writing…something you usually don’t always find here…. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. PS I passed out in a back of a car last weekend and lost my camera….the below is as many pictures as i could take before my hand got really tired from lugging around fat stupid embarrassing camera….

Image Nation Turns One

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

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

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

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….

I actually tried these on at the end of the night. After a few dance moves, I fell backwards on to a table. DIED of embarrassment.

and of course…they decided NOT to come off. It took 5 people and about 20 minutes.

Double Dipping With Liza & Vesna

Sunday, May 1st, 2011

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.

DESERT FISH presents PISCES BALL

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

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….
