As the Chanel Cruise show in Dubai saw guests fly in from all around the world, one of them had special preparation to do. Moroccan singer Faouzia arrived at the venue, tucked away in Dubai Creek Harbour, not only as a front row guest, but also as a surprise performer at the show’s after party. Ahead of her soulful performance of the hit song ‘Minefields’ with musical icon John Legend, the 21-year-old singer invited Vogue Arabia to give us a glimpse of her prep time at Dubai’s Mandarin Oriental Jumeirah Hotel.
Her chosen look? A playful ensemble comprising of a black turtleneck bodysuit with pink Chanel monograms all over, and comfy—aka, lounge-worthy—oversized pants. To accessorize and add a bit of bling to her outfit, Faouzia went with Chanel’s signature chain belt. Watch as she practices singing in her hotel room mere minutes before the show, and gets ready for her night out above.
