The highlight of the 2018 party-season calendar is almost upon us. The Ball of Arabia, the first-ever gala of its kind in the UAE, will take place on Friday, December 7, meaning the next 36 hours are going to be taken up by much prepping and preening.
The inaugural bash, held in partnership with Tiffany & Co with the support of Sobha Realty, Rolls-Royce, and Jumeirah Group, will raise funds for the Girls Education and Empowerment Program.
With a performance by international superstar Ciara and a charitable auction, the glamorous evening will be attended by the crème de la crème of Middle Eastern royalty, and the fashion, music, and modeling worlds. Along with generous donations, we’re expecting a night of high-octane gowns and breathtaking beauty looks, to match the awe-inspiring surroundings of the Burj Al Arab.
Here, we round up some of the most iconic red-carpet dresses in recent years to inspire your gala dressing, should you need any last-minute muses.
