Inside Vogue Arabia’s First Anniversary Celebrations in Beirut

Following an elegant soirée with Aquazurra in Paris, Vogue Arabia hosted another star-studded dinner in Beirut’s opulent Sursock Palace Gardens toasting the magazine’s first birthday.

The Vogue team was joined by A-list stars and top models, including Cindy Bruna, Jasmine Sanders, Alexina Graham, and Vogue Arabia cover stars Halima Aden and Afef Jnifen, who all flew in to the Lebanese capital to celebrate in style. Guests also included Elie Saab, Zuhair Murad, actors Tara Emad, Saba Mubarak, Dorra Zarrouk, Salma Abu Deif, and singer Lara Scandar. Guests were treated to a delectable Mediterranean dinner of sea bass on a bed of spring quinoa and tajine sauce, complete with a selection of tantalizing desserts served on Nimerology plates.

Serenading the guests were Guy Manoukian and Aziza, further adding to the dazzling setting in the 19th century mansion, which is one of the most exclusive private venues in the country.

Of course, there was an after party, with guests heading to Sky Gate tower, one of the highest points in Beirut with stunning panoramic views, where DJ Calin and Djette spun tracks that got the partygoers into the groove well into the early hours. Amin Sammakieh of Plan A Experience Design produced custom projections for the party.

Vogue Arabia’s anniversary event sponsors included Hugo Boss, IQOS, and Air France, who created interactive installations at the party venue. Luxury boutique hotel Le Vendôme Beirut accommodated all VIP international guests, who flew in from all over the world. The event was produced by Mariana Wehbe PR and Fift15n.
