She's in town to promote her latest film Just a Stranger, but Anne Curtis-Smith is certainly no stranger to the UAE's fashion talent.

The Filipina-Australian actress, 34, caught up with some of Dubai's most famous fashion faces while in the city, all of whom come from the Philippines.

The star shared a photo of herself with designers Ezra Santos, of Ezra Couture, Michael Cinco and Furne One, of Amato, today, after spending an evening with the trio.

"With the impalpable... couture madames of Dubai!" Curtis-Smith captioned the shot, which was snapped outside Latin-American restaurant Coya.

"Three proudly Pinoy designers Ezra, Michael and Furne, whom I have been given the honour to wear their creations throughout my career."

The post, in which the stylish quartet are captured wearing head-to-toe black, garnered more than 50,000 likes within an hour of being posted.

"So happy to finally hang out and just make chika [gossip]. Had the most lovely time," Curtis-Smith added. "Thank you for last night! See you in Manila my loves!"

She was spotted wearing this Michael Cinco dress for a pageant in the Philippines this June:

This weekend, the actress was in the UAE for her Just A Stranger press tour, where she attended screenings in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

The Tagalog film stars Curtis-Smith opposite Marco Gumabao and Edu Manzano.

It tells the story of married woman, Mae, who has an affair with 19-year-old Jericho (Gumabao), who is half her age.

The actress hasn't shared that many moments from her time in the UAE, other than from the screenings, although she did upload a short clip taken at the Palace Downtown.

"I love you Dubai! Three sold-out screenings today," she captioned the video.
