2014 Dubai International Film Festival - Day 5

Hanging out with Eva Longoria and Alexandra Burke

08 Jan 2015

I mingled with a galaxy of stars in my sparkly new gold gown!

This week’s fashion find is my sparkly gold dress by one of my fave boutiques, Ginger & Lace (Ibn Battuta and WAFI). It’s the perfect red carpet gown!

As part of Dubai International Film Festival, I was honoured to attend the Global Gift Gala held at White Dubai last week, hosted by Desperate Housewives star, Eva Longoria. The event was in aid of great charities: the Eva Longoria and Sunrise K Foundations and Dubai Cares. It was so lovely to meet Eva and I can confirm that she is just as gorgeous in the flesh!

British singer Alexandra Burke provided the after-dinner entertainment. She performed Whitney Houston tracks from The Bodyguard, the West End musical she's currently starring in, and looked stunning in a full-length red dress. We’ve worked together in the past, so it was good to catch up over dinner, where she told me she was really enjoying her fourth trip to Dubai. 

Finally, after a busy 2014, I’m really looking forward to spending some quality time with my family over the holidays. Here’s me and my little girl Star Lily, getting cosy in front of our Christmas tree. We're wishing each and every one of our Ahlan! readers Happy Holidays!

Guests at the Global Gift Gala were given beautiful embroidered pashminas, which came in handy – it’s getting a bit chilly!
