Everything: Carolina Herrera
In Dubai, it’s all about glamour. This is a city that loves and lives for luxury. I felt completely at home because there was so much NYC in Dubai. Being a city full of expats from all over the world, you really get a taste for so many diverse cultures. But I wanted a real taste of the city’s Middle Eastern culture. We visited the desert of Dubai simply on a safari complete with scarves around our heads to protect us from the sun and wind while we clutched onto the bumpy ride for this thrilling adventure. Dylana and I were in town shooting with Carolina Herrera, so of course I styled up some amazing CH pieces like stunning silk scarves tied as a top, a gorgeous maxi skirt, along with the beautiful Insignia bag. There is something so iconic about the desert here in Dubai. The sand and hills go on as far as the eye can see. I love the color pops here contrasted against the soft, sandy hills. It was a super hot, but beautiful afternoon. We sipped on traditional tea with the locals before zooming through the desert in our bright red jeep scouting out shooting locations. I love being able to move and play with iconic poses out here in the open land. It was freeing. Before we got a bit too sunburn, the team and I headed to Al Maha, a resort and spa in the middle of the desert for a little R&R. We had a delicious brunch out on the porch, while gazelles walked freely by us. It was unlike anything I’ve ever seen. A very peaceful, serene moment that can never be recreated again. I just soaked it all up pinching myself at how lucky I was to be right there in that moment.
