Last night at Hotel d’Evreux in Paris’s Place Vendôme, Aquazzura hosted an intimate chandelier-lit dinner, toasting Vogue Arabia’s one-year anniversary and the brand’s new Dubai flagship opening in the next two weeks. Taking in the evening was a number of VIP guests wearing their glittering best, from Vogue Arabia cover girls Hanaa Ben Abdesslem and Farida Khelfa, to models Cindy Bruna, and Maria Borges, and Lebanese designers Ingie Chalhoub and Georges Hobeika. Meanwhile Kenza Fourati and Ayman Mohyeldin flew in from New York to attend the event. One end sat Jasmine Sanders mingling with Caroline Vreeland, while the other had Zuhair Murad with Ellen Von Unwerth.
The evening began with a thoughtful speech from editor-in-chief Manuel Arnaut who thanked the Vogue Arabia team and Edgardo Osorio for hosting the night, and for their years of close friendship. Of course, the evening wouldn’t be complete without a delectable menu of lobster, John Dory, and raspberry sorbet, which was catered by Paris’ Potel et Chabot. Following dessert, it was time to hit the dance floor where guests got into the groove well into the early hours of the night. Next up is Beirut, where Vogue Arabia’s anniversary celebrations will continue.
