Madrid is once again witnessing global star power as Cartier invites friends of the house over to celebrate its new high jewelry collection. Representing the region is Yasmine Sabri—the jeweler’s first Middle Eastern ambassador—with two stunning looks by an Arab designer in tow. The Egyptian actor’s first pick for the occasion was designed by Lebanese couturier Nicolas Jebran, whose form-flattering and dazzling pieces have long found a fan in Sabri.

Pictured mingling with fellow Cartier ambassadors and acclaimed actors Deepika Padukone, Rami Malek, and Annabelle Wallis, Sabri wore a bright red dress from the Beirut-based fashion house. The figure-hugging number came with a statement off-shoulder neckline in a zig-zag pattern, ruched detailing on the bodice, and a side slit. A sparkling ruby and diamond necklace, and earrings by Cartier were naturally the ideal choice of jewelry to go with her look.

During her Madrid trip, the former Vogue Arabia cover star was also seen arriving for lunch wearing another Nicolas Jebran creation, styled by Carole Bou Khaled. The couture gown came in a fuchsia pink hue, with full sleeves,and a floor-grazing hem, while Jebran’s signature silhouette and all-over pink studs elevated the piece. Her makeup for the day, courtesy of Lebanese artist Shariff Tanyous, featured a neutral glam with defined lashes and a nude lip. Overall, the perfect pick for a summer afternoon in Spain.

Soon after celebrating the wedding of her daughter in Cairo, Assala took the stage in Dubai for an enthralling performance at Expo 2020 last night. The Syrian singer’s concert marked one of the world fair’s biggest ones, leading up to its closing ceremony on March 31. Singing her classical hits, Assala was joined at the concert by a few of the Arab world’s most-loved musicians—Saudi artist Abadi Aljohar, and Kuwaiti singer Nabeel Shuail.

For the occasion, the former Vogue Arabia cover star looked to Nicolas Jebran, one of her favorite Arab designers, who presented a fresh new look for Assala. Foregoing the Lebanese couturier’s usually-favored heavily embellished gowns, the singer opted for a floaty and breezy number appropriate for the open-air concert, while still keeping her signature look intact. The pink gown, made using printed tulle, came with a billowing cape, a closed neck bodice that flowed into a pleated skirt, and a waist-cinching belt in the same material. Complementing the soft and feminine look, Assala’s makeup was done using matching shades and featured a lavender smoky eye, glowy blushed cheeks, and a glossy pink lip. Her short brown locks were slicked back for a polished hairstyle, showing off her gold and purple earrings.

Assala and Jebran go way back, with the singer wearing the designer’s dazzling pieces on many occasions. “A shining star,” is how Jebran describes his muse. “A happy, rebellious, capricious, and positive spirit who never surrenders and who removes obstacles with her music.”

Sotheby’s has announced its plans for a charitable auction in order to raise funds for Beirut. The auction, titled To Beirut with Love will feature a handful of extraordinary items, including a custom Elie Saab dress, worn by award-winning actor Emma Stone to the 2015 Oscars.

The sale will be open for bidding from December 7 to December 15, where a number of handpicked donations from iconic artists, celebrities, and fashion and jewelry designers will be on offer.
The star of the auction is noted to be a breathtaking gown by Lebanese couturier, Elie Saab. The pale-green sequined dress features an open back and a thigh-high slit and was worn by Stone, at the Oscars ceremony in 2015 where she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Birdman. The stunning gown is estimated to sell for between £20,000 to £30,000 ($26,700 to $40,025).

Leading the jewelry line-up is the unmissable My Dior cuff and British-artist Damien Hirst‘s gold pill bracelet with diamond skull. The eye-catching gold My Dior bracelet, designed by artistic director of Dior Joaillerie, Victoire de Castellane, features a dazzling array of diamonds and colored gemstones and is expected to generate at least £30,000 to £50,000 ($40,025 to $66,700). Elsewhere Hirst’s playful bracelet, created in 2015, reflects the theme of pharmaceuticals, which is often present in contemporary artist’s work.
Among many of the captivating artworks is a photograph taken from the Suit Egyptienne series by leading Lebanese photographer Fouad Elkoury. British supermodel Naomi Campbell has also donated one of her favorite portraits, an image of herself shot by photographers Rocco Lapasta and Charles DeCaro, that is estimated to sell for £3,000 to £5,000 ($4,000 to $6,671).

Sotheby’s has confirmed that all the proceeds from the auction will be shared among five charities that are providing relief to Beirut following the tragic port explosion in August. The five charities chosen by the initiative are Nusaned, Beit El Baraka, Baytna Baytak, Al Fanar, and House of Christmas.
“Lebanon is home to an artistic community whose contributions to the cultural landscape cannot be overstated,” says Sotheby’s chairman for the Middle East, Edward Gibbs. “The explosion in the port of Beirut this summer sent shockwaves through the city and the world, impacting every sector of society in Lebanon with countless tales of loss, damage, and displacement. Sotheby’s has come together with our partners to host the auction, To Beirut with Love, to provide much-needed relief and funds to aid the healing process.”
