The Only Girl in the World

Ok soo! Apparently its Rihanna day in Natalie land :) I know TONS of people have blogged about this, but since I've been so out of touch with the world and so incredibly busy with the Doha Tribeca Film Festival, I only JUST saw the video for Rihanna's "Only Girl in the World" aaaaaand yes, I fell in love :)

The whole thing could just be shot as an entire spread for a fashion magazine! I LOVED the colours! the softness, the hues of the reds and pinks, and that baby blue cardigan!
Not to mention the massive pink rose that i would LOVE to have lying around as an extra prop in my room! One more thing I gotta add, Ms Riri can definitely work a sparkly head band.

If you haven't already seen it here is the Video! Let me know what you guys think of Rihanna's new look :)

Rihanna In Mark Fast For Marie Claire!


Here she is frosted in Swarovski crystals! Rihanna Rocking an ever so stunning dress by Mark Fast, from his Spring/Summer 2011 Collection, shot for Marie Claire UK's December issue. Im kinda loving the powder blue contrast against that feisty red!

Christie's on Qatar's Mind.

The Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani and his wife Sheikha Mozah with Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip, at Windsor Castle.

Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani will be pleased that Christie's has set a world record of 117% increase in sales in Dubai earlier this week, raising $29 million. I honestly think its great that he is taking such a huge interest in middle eastern art because thats where the market is headed right now. Rumor has it that The Emir is looking to buy over Christie's, just as he had Harrods department store earlier this year. Anyhow on a lighter note, I think Sheikha Mozah looked ever so stylish by his side. I got to see her yesterday at the Doha Tribeca Film Festival, she has such an electric aura about her! Doesn't she always look fabulous?

Mario Testino For D&G

Mario Testino is one of my favourite fashion photographers. I always felt his work was alot more personal, showed a truer side of life. Anyways, last season D&G's A/W collection was my absolute love. Everything from the deer knit prints on chiffon, to the knit body suits, i loved every piece. I couldn't wait for the ad campaign to come out in the magazines and they couldn't have chosen anyone better to shoot it other than Mario Testino. Here are some of the images.You can really tell how much fun they had fun on the set, the model's smiles just look so natural. :)

London College of Fashion in Dubai

When I first heard the rumors about this a few months ago on campus I didn't quite believe it BUT here it is! London College of Fashion is offering a variety of short courses in Dubai starting October 22nd at the Jumeirah Emirates Towers. I think its pretty cool! I mean I love the university, I love my course, we get to work with designers everyday.

Sooo if this is your kinda thing, well it should be if your reading my blog :) check it out! here is the link:

Elie 'The Love of my Life' Saab

This man is pure genius, and those of you who know me, will know that he is above all, my No.1 Idol. His creations are timeless. He accentuates the femininity of a woman's body and presents it in an entirely elegant manner. Every season his collections contain my favourite luxury evening wear garments. If you ever had the chance to purchase one of these beauties, or see it up close you'll understand what I'm talking about.  Anyhow, i won't blabber on for too long! Here are some images from his Ready-to-Wear Spring/ Summer 2011 collection :)


Sonia Rykiel S/S 2011

I've always loved Sonia Rykiel's fun feminine touch! Her knitwear pieces are adorable, and i loved her colour pathway for this season. and have you seen those bulky necklaces? to die for :)
