x Abu Dhabi, UAESunday 23 July 2017

Things to do: October 16 to 22

M is all about...the Abu Dhabi Film Festival, which ends on October 23.


The Celebrity Lounge at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival is without a doubt this year’s hottest ticket. You have to be an A-list, or, at least, B-list celeb to get an invitation, but M magazine can bring you a sneak preview into the glamorous world of the festival’s A-Lounge.
From diamonds and other red carpet necessities, to luxury cosmetics and the latest designer gowns and sunglasses, visiting stars such as Uma Thurman and Anne Hathaway are certain to indulge in some of the latest fashion and beauty must-haves.
If a quick dress change is needed then designers Hervé Léger, Balmain and the fine jewellery brand Mouawad are all on hand to offer their expertise. A last minute pedicure or touching up a look is easy thanks to the likes of Toni&Guy and Tips & Toes. Celebrities can then sit back and relax on the chill-out terrace, while enjoying a selection of canapes from Jones the Grocer, cupcakes from Sugar Daddy’s and Moët bubbles. Proving that glam can also be ‘green’, house of glaMO founder and designer, Mohammed Sultan Al Habtoor, has partnered with Bee’ah, the Sharjah Environment Company to create a limited edition re-usable bag and T-shirt. Nice work if you can get it...
