On the evening of February 15, some of the region — and the world’s — most famous faces came together for a night like no other: the Vogue Ball of Arabia. Hosted at Atlantis the Royal in partnership with Hongqi, Amaffi and Komos, the 2024 edition of the annual celebration was a spectacular affair, with everyone (and we mean, everyone) honoring the theme of the evening, ‘Mermaids of the Gulf’, in incredible avantgarde looks that took inspiration from the magical underwater world.

Among the most exciting personalities in attendance was Former French first lady Carla Bruni. For her night out, the model and singer/songwriter was joined by Giuseppe Santoni, chairman of Italian fashion house Santoni. “I’m so grateful to Mr Santoni for inviting me to the magical Vogue Arabia Ball,” she shared later. “Working with Santoni is always a great pleasure. Their products are timeless and elegant, and I love that it is a family business that really embodies Italian craftsmanship.”

Posing for the cameras alongside Giuseppe Santoni, Bruni looked resplendent in a body-hugging chocolate brown gown that was covered in sequins and came in the most interesting cut. Featuring a high neck and flared full sleeves, the dress drew attention to her sun-kissed skin via its strategic cut-outs along the waist and neckline. To complete her Vogue Ball of Arabia look, the multi-hyphenate opted for a classic black clutch, along with heels that are a must-have for serial party-goers. Take a closer look at her Santoni sandals below.

Carla Bruni’s shoes, crafted by Santoni, came in a classic black hue and featured zig-zagging straps that made them all the more secure. Thanks to their palette and dainty style, the sandals make a versatile pick, promising to complement everything from little black dresses to bold evening gowns. Their sturdy heels also make them the most comfortable choice for those who love to dance the night away, and there’s no missing their statement tangerine soles — ideal for the woman who likes a bit of drama. Given the beaming smile on Bruni’s face throughout the evening, it’s safe to say that opting for Santoni’s fail-safe footwear was a smart choice for the model. Want them for yourself?
