Middle Eastern Fashion Industry Needs to Go Back to Its Roots, Experts Say
There is no doubt that the Middle East is a unique region that has its own traditions, culture and charm. The originality of the people who inhabit this part of the world shines in everything they do, as well as in everything they are. The same goes for the fashion industry in the Middle East. It has its own characteristics and trademarks that can be imitated but never replicated. However, lately, the region is commonly linked to clichéd in design and style, such as the heavy makeup look.
This was the topic of one of the panel discussions during the first edition of Dubai’s Fashion Forward this year. During the four-day event spoke many well-known personalities in the fashion world, like designer Rabih Kayrouz and fashion editor Lousie Nichol.
According to Louise Nichol, Editor-In-Chief for Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, the truth is that the Middle East and Dubai, in particular, is no longer what it used to be a decade ago. Nichols believes that there is a new generation of fashion followers in the region who are more open to mix and combine a variety of styles. Nevertheless, she adds that glamour and beauty are always present in Middle East’s fashion: “Glamour defines the Middle Eastern fashion, together with beauty. For a magazine editor it is a joy to work in this market.”

However, most people took his on-screen investments more seriously than his real-life ones. But it turns out that Kutcher really has a huge interest and knowledge on today’s technology sector.

When Hugh Jackman strides into a room, everyone takes notice. After all, it’s hard to ignore the angular frame, the neon smile, and the electric elegance of a man who is as strikingly handsome as he is talented. He’s also known for being one the nicest guys in Hollywood. But “nice” is hardly adequate to describe the 44-year-old Jackman, who has proven himself to be one of the most versatile performers on stage and screen. In addition to his work in films like The X-Men and The Prestige, the Aussie heartthrob has also gained fame for his highly acclaimed one-man Broadway shows as well as for hosting both the Oscars and Tonys. Now he’s about to enjoy one of the best years of his career, playing the part of Jean Valjean opposite Anne Hathaway in “Les Miserables” and for reprising his X-Men role in the long-awaited “Wolverine.” Read more

Exclusive interview with Daniel Craig ahead of James Bond movie, Skyfall
Daniel Craig is promoting the upcoming Bond movie, Skyfall, his third time as the iconic spy. This film is arguably the best Bond movie in many years and brings back regulars such as Dame Judi Dench, and introduces an evil and amusing villain, played by Javier Bardem, as well as Agent Q, played by Ben Wishaw. Craig, 44, is wearing a light grey cashmere sweater over a white shirt and dark grey tie, teamed with a pair of dark trousers. He’s ruggedly handsome and evidently incredibly fit.
