Originally founded in 2015 by Her Highness Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak, Emirati Women’s Day is an occasion that is very close to our heart here at Vogue Arabia. The much-respected powerhouse who juggles many hats as Chairwoman of the General Women’s Union, President of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood, and Supreme Chairwoman of the Family Development, conceptualized the annual event in an effort to celebrate the work done by Emirati women around the world, and serves as a reminder that the women of the UAE are a force to be reckoned with.
This year, the Mother of the Nation has chosen the theme of Emirati Women’s Day to be “Inspiring Reality; Sustainable Future”, a thoughtful concept that inspires us all to look forward towards a better tomorrow. From an Abaya Rally in Abu Dhabi to a special panel discussion featuring Emirati electrical engineer and life coach Walaa Ahmed Al Shehhi and Emirati aircraft engineer Suaad Al Shamsi, August 28 will see Emirati women throughout the region celebrating in different ways. And in your own little way, you can make the women in your life feel special too.
On occasion of Emirati Women’s Day, we have put together an edit of gifts that are bound to be treasured. Treat your closest friends to kaftans by Taller Marmo and Azzalia, or go a little more contemporary with a La Double J dress that’s ideal for hot summer days. Remind your sister of home with Tom Ford’s oud wood candle, or with Diptyque’s perfumed brooch, which serves as the perfect accessory for head scarves. To commemorate the day, you can’t go wrong with Judith Leiber’s sparkling Emirates-inspired clutch, while Loewe’s pistachio green handbag makes an easy day-to-day hold-all. For the style enthusiast, Valentino’s emerald green earrings are a win, as are Amina Abdul Jillil’s festive bow-detailed heels.

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.
