Gemini Season 2022: 20 Gifts That Are Perfect For The Zodiac Sign

Gemini Season 2022: 20 Gifts That Are Perfect For The Zodiac Sign

Gemini season is officially here, starting on May 21 and running on till June 21. As we step into the month of The Twins, Vogue Arabia takes you through the basics about the zodiac sign, and how you can make them feel special on their big day.

Gemini personality traits
Often depicted by a set of twins, Gemini is easily one of the spunkiest—and often most misunderstood—signs of the zodiac. As their official symbol suggests, Gemini individuals tend to have dual personalities. People born under the third sign of the zodiac bring polarizing traits together. They’re outgoing but love their personal space, they’re impulsive but can make good planners, and are extremely affectionate—until they drop a truth bomb on you that stings more than they’d thought it would. Nevertheless, there’s never a dull moment with Mercury babies, who make excellent party hosts, and have a knack for communication that few other signs can compete with. Bonus: Geminis are also exceptionally easy-going (after all, this is an air sign we’re talking about), and their adventurous streak can put a Sagittarius to shame. What’s not to love?
Famous Gemini celebrities
Given their outspoken nature, it comes as no surprise that some of the most talked-about celebrities in the world are Gemini—hi, Angelina Jolie and Kanye West! Others to be born under the air sign are designer Salvatore Ferragamo, musical legend Prince, Hollywood favorites Morgan Freeman, Natalie Portman, Johnny Depp and Nicole Kidman, Spider-Man Tom Holland, Captain America Chris Evans, supermodels Naomi Campbell, Adriana Lima and Heidi Klum, musicians Iggy Azalea and Kendrick Lamar, twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, author Salman Rushdie, and tennis pro Venus Williams.
The best birthday gifts for Gemini individuals
Let’s face it: shopping for Geminis is no easy feat. But where there’s a will, there’s a way. Why not celebrate your favorite twin this moment with a sartorial picks that honor their versatility? A neon Balenciaga bag is bound to earn you brownie points, as are Fendi’s topsy-turvy metallic flats abd Saint Laurent’s half-black, half-white jacket, a nod to the sign’s inherent dual nature. As the temperature continues to climb, your Gemini sister is bound to love a summer dress like Zimmermann’s floral number, with Fry Power’s rainbow ring set to match.
Always happy to try something new, Geminis are a great sign to give not-so-basic gifts to. In the mood to experiment? Try boxing up a multicolored poker set, or indulge this sign’s inner party maniac with Pro-Ject’s sleek turntable. For times when they want to wind down, nothing will come in as handy as a Kindle.
And that’s not where the list ends. While Jo Malone’s dual perfume set promises to be a hit in every indecisive Gemini’s vanity pouch, Huda Beauty’s Mercury Retrograde works as a cheeky nod to the ongoing planetary positioning (and its bold color palette does justice to this zodiac sign’s colorful persona).

It’s almost here! The Holy Month of Ramadan has almost come to a close once again, and Eid al-Fitr is just around the corner. As you wait with bated breath to get together with your closest friends and families, it may also be a good idea to put together an ensemble that commemorates the special occasion in a unique way. Not quite sure what to wear for Eid this time around? Whether you prefer soft hues, playful patterns, or all-out glitz, Vogue Arabia has the perfect kaftans, abayas, gowns and scarves for you.
Keep it classic
A time of looking back on personal growth, Eid al-Fitr 2022 deserves to be celebrated in something that’s not just elegant to look at, but can also come in handy for years to come. If less-is-more has always been your motto, invest in Azzalia’s ivory draped abaya, or play up earthy hues with a buttery beige number from Barza. Fendi’s ivory and gold gown gives traditional wear a contemporary twist, while Totême’s black and white scarf promises to see you through many seasons to come.

Taurus Season 2022: 20 Amazing Gifts To Buy Your Favorite Bull for Their Birthday

Taurus Season 2022: 20 Amazing Gifts To Buy Your Favorite Bull for Their Birthday

It’s here! Taureans around the globe can now celebrate their season, which kicks off on April 20, and goes on for a full month until May 20.

Taurus personality traits
Earthy, steadfast, and often loyal to a fault, Taurus individuals belong to the element of earth, just like Capricorn and Virgo. This earthy energy often translates into their habits and life preferences; Taureans tend to be extremely practical and hardworking, with a taste for all things natural. Seldom will you see fake flowers in a Taurean’s home. This zodiac sign, born under Venus, the planet of romance and sensuality, believes that true luxury resides in all things un-synthetic, from their fresh, citrusy fragrances that remind one of spring gardens, to their clothing, always crafted from fabrics that are soothing to the touch. That’s not to say that Taurus people have simple, or boring taste. Just like fire sign Leo, this zodiac member can get a tad indulgent, and their home decor, often warm, rich, and pleasing to all senses, serves as proof.
Famous Taurus celebrities
Perhaps the most famous Taurus of our generation is Queen Elizabeth, whose strong work ethic reflects one of the most loved traits of her zodiac sign. Other stars who belong to the Taurus family include Palestinian-Dutch model Gigi Hadid, Rami Malek, former Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr, Grammy-winning singer Adele, musical icon Cher, Hollywood stars George Clooney, Robert Pattinson, Jessica Alba and Renee Zellweger, rapper Travis Scott, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, footballer David Beckham, and musician Enrique Iglesias.
The best birthday gifts for Taurus individuals
Though Taurus babies can often be stubborn—and don’t get us started on that Taurean temper!—the sign of the bull comes with a gentle heart, and if you happen to have one in your inner circle, now is a great time to start planning a birthday gift that makes them feel as special as they like to do for you. Whether you’re shopping for a parent, a sibling, a friend or your partner, Vogue Arabia has you covered.
As an earth sign, Taurus has an affinity for all things natural. Treat your favorite bull to an elegant trinket box made of solid wood, a Jo Malone diffuser that smells like their favorite flowers, or a soft brown rug that’ll fit right into their elegant home from Hommes Studio. Got an astrology enthusiast on your hands? You can’t go wrong with Bulgari’s emerald green timepiece—a nod to the zodiac sign’s official birthstone—or genuine emerald jewelry.
Often known for their impeccable taste in fashion, Taureans can never resist an investment piece. Consider making their day with Gucci’s classic bags, or indulge them just in time for Eid al-Fitr with a unique kaftan by Louisa Parris. For the beauty junkie, Angela Caglia’s rose quartz eye mask is a must, and works seamlessly with Nadine Merabi’s feather-detailed pajama set.

Eid al-Fitr 2022 Gift Guide: 11 Presents for Anyone Who Loves Beauty, Makeup, Skincare and Fragrances

Eid al-Fitr is a special time for everyone, and while we are almost past the halfway point of this Ramadan month, there is nothing better than prepping  for the celebration of the new moon by choosing gifts for the most special people in your life. After the period of fasting, Eid is a time to come together and share good times with friends and family. Make 2022’s Eid al-Fitr memorable with gifts that loved ones are sure to remember forever. Below, Vogue Arabia’s beautify gift edit for Eid al-Fitr 2022.

Treat friends with this eccentric Eau de Toilette from Loewe this Ramadan. The woody floral scent is inspired by the Ibizan Balearic Islands known for its playful spirit, and a fragrance like this one should suit the friend who is usually the first to want to get together and celebrate after the long fasting month.
Aesop Aganice Aromatique Candle

Candles are always a lovely gift idea to give during Eid, and luxury brand Aesop’s latest Aganice Aromatique candle is described as “a place of many mythologies”. Inspired by historical Grecian stories, the enchanting scent includes a seductive clove and mimosa scent, with a hint of tobacco.
Lush Light the Night Bath Set

Why not celebrate the new moon with this beautifully wrapped gift box from Lush? The full set includes a decadent Sticky Dates Shower Gel and Light the Night lantern-shaped bath bomb. The cruelty-free brand has a whole range of gifts dedicated to the Holy Month of Ramadan.
Sunday Riley Pro Vitamin C Kit

A kit with a zesty kick to gift to skin care lovers this Eid, Sunday Riley’s pro-vitamin set promises to hydrate and illuminate skin whilst reducing the appearance of dark spots and pigmentation. This multi-piece kit includes a vitamin C serum, face oil, moisturizer and an eye cream, which will work as great skin saviora after the fasting period.

La Prairie  Skin Caviar Eye Cream

Skin can look worse for wear when drastic changes have been made to sleep patterns and diet, and the first skin issue to arise is likely to be puffy dark circles due to low water intake and lack of sleep.

The 25 Best Kaftans To Wear for Iftars and Suhoors This Ramadan

Vogue Arabia, April 2022. Photo: Greg Adamski
Ramadan is officially here, and with it, comes a festive mood that’s almost palpable in the region. With Covid-19 restrictions finally a thing of the past, 2022 is giving all the chance to make the most of the Holy Month with special suhoor and iftar gatherings, many of which may require an ensemble that’s as eye-catching as it is comfortable.
Cue the evergreen kaftan—a classic that’s long been a favorite for a reason. Most often crafted using breezy fabrics like cotton, silk, linen and organza, kaftans manage to tick all the right boxes for festive occasions. While their relaxed silhouettes allow ease of movement, the right cut can do wonders, creating an elegant shape that no other outfit can quite compete with. And for the modest dresser, the kaftan delivers time and again with its demure aesthetic. What more could you ask for?
As we dive into one of the most joyous and meaningful times of the year, Vogue Arabia takes you through some of the best kaftans to invest in this Ramadan.

Pastel kaftans for suhoor
As temperatures continue to rise, now is the ideal time to show light-as-air fabrics and soothing sorbet hues some love. Alaïa’s minty blue pick makes the ideal choice, as does Honayda’s soft pink pleated kaftan, which comes with edgy embellishment around the neckline. Love a little lace? Don’t miss Miguelina’s biscuit brown kaftan, or spotlight minimal accents with Yasmin Al Mulla’s beige number, dotted with delicate silver moons. Andrew Gn’s buttery yellow kaftan—complete with feather detailing—is another must-see for anyone who loves a little drama.
Honayda, AED 9,017
Vibrant kaftans for Ramadan get-togethers
There’s no denying the appeal of jewel tones, so why not pick a bold kaftan this season? Celebrate the Holy Month with your nearest and dearest in a light—yet impactful—creation like Halpern’s tangerine and pink color-blocked piece, or echo the beauty of paradise with an emerald green Oscar de la Renta. Pearla’s deep purple kaftan stands out for its innovate use of mustard accents, while SemSem‘s ombré kaftan, which runs from coral to midnight blue, gives a nod to the beauty of Ramadan sunsets.
Halpern, AED 11,656

Iftar-ready embellished kaftans
Every now and then, more really is more. For your next formal iftar gathering, why not celebrate the Holy Month with an embellished kaftan? Bthaina’s ivory and gold number paints a regal picture, while La Vie Style House caters to those who never shy away from a strong dose of sparkle. Prefer tried-and-tested hues? You can’t go wrong with Noor Al Bahrani’s subtly sequined black creation, or Selma Benomar’s grey kaftan, featuring intricately placed layers of tassels.
Selma Benomar, price on request
Printed kaftans that pack a punch
Say what you will, nothing beats the appeal of a printed kaftan. Fuss-free, yet fun, a patterned version of the staple is a wardrobe must-have. Play with florals via Dolce & Gabbana, Meng, and Richard Quinn, or champion exotic birds and butterflies with Tory Burch and Emilio Pucci’s designs respectively. Scroll through to see how Bambah plays up the classic white kaftan with geometric patterns, and Azzalia’s innovative new piece, which brings back everyone’s favorite paisley patterns.

How To Shop for Vintage Fashion in Dubai Like a Pro: 5 Tips From a Connoisseur

How To Shop for Vintage Fashion in Dubai Like a Pro: 5 Tips From a Connoisseur

Tatiana Fayad. Photo: Courtesy Nouvelle Vague
There are fashion connoisseurs, and then, there are vintage lovers… those sartorial enthusiasts who can’t get over the romance of a painstakingly found piece from the yesteryears, which stands out not just for its impeccable detailing, but also for its history. Designer Tatiana Fayad, the woman behind accessory brand Vanina‘s beaded creations, is, believe it or not, one such collector. “My personal love story with vintage clothing started during my teenage years, when I started digging into my mother’s closets and found myself amazing pieces. These hand-me-downs made me realize the value of vintage fashion, and bit by bit, I started looking for unique and one-offs pieces while traveling,” she tells Vogue Arabia in a candid chat that takes us back to her childhood. “I started acquiring my own vintage stock with the dream that maybe one day, I could open my very own vintage shop.”
Bag, Louis Vuitton. Photo: Courtesy Nouvelle Vague
Come 2018, the dream was realized with the launch of  Nouvelle Vague, Fayad’s very own vintage haven, which offers up age-old treasures to Beirut’s fashion-savvy set, and was soon followed by an e-commerce website aiming to become the main online destination for vintage lovers in Lebanon, and also the region. And this year, Nouvelle Vague took things one step further, introducing a special Dubai pop-up that promises a unique collection of eclectic, yet wearable pieces to shoppers in the UAE. “With new drops every week, you can expect to find everything from classics to statement pieces that have been selected for their quality and style,” the designer reveals.

Keeping the importance of sustainable fashion in mind (“Clothes weren’t designed to be disposable, but to last and be cherished forever. The future of fashion has to be vintage, up-cycled designs and rentals,” says the designer, who also prioritizes the environment when working on new Vanina creations), Nouvelle Vague’s Dubai pop-up brings together vintage finds that reflect Tatiana Fayad’s discerning eye, and could very easily be spotted in her own closet. The key to finding the right piece, however, is to shop like a seasoned vintage store hopper.
Jacket, Saint Laurent. Photo: Courtesy Nouvelle Vague
Here are Fayad’s top five tips to shopping for vintage pieces like a professional
1. Invest in timeless, classical pieces, like an Yves Saint Laurent suit, or Emmanuel Ungaro dress, because if a design can withstand time, it means that it’s a good investment.
2. Make sure the garment fits you well. Since most of the vintage pieces that you find in stores have been worn several times, size does not really correspond to what’s indicated on the label. So be a little patient, and if there is no fitting room at the store, do not hesitate to try the garment directly on yourself.
3. Quality is paramount. You need to invest in vintage clothing that is perfect, so look out carefully for stains, marks, broken zips and missing buttons, as you will never be able to get stains out properly.
4. Feel the fabric. You may fall in love with a beautiful dress or a stunning shirt, but if it is made from a rigid fabric—think twice. Look for for cottons, silks, linens and denims, and always touch the clothing to make sure the piece still has life in it.
5. And lastly, be open-minded! Vintage shopping is an adventure. You may stumble upon your new favorite outfit, or something that may look good on you that you might not have chosen at first!
Can’t wait to dive into Nouvelle Vague’s Dubai pop-up? Keep an eye out for Fayad’s five favorite pieces
I have a special connection with every single piece that I collect and put on display, picking out just five is not an easy task! But here are a few of my favorites:

1. An Emilio Pucci printed dress from the 90s.
2. Chanel pointed-toe pumps from the early 2000s.
3. A heavily beaded Laurence Kazar cardigan from the 80s.
4. An Escada belt with golden hardware from the 90s.
5. A ribbed Alaia maxi dress from the 90s.

On till April 2022, Nouvelle Vague’s vintage pop-up is taking place at Kulture House Café
