Madonna’s Moschino glasses

We can’t quite condone the shortness of Madonna’s leather hotpants in the video for Turn Up The Radio which she shot in Florence last week, but we do like her Moschino “Gatta” sunglasses. They available at the Moschino store in Dubai Mall, Dh1,000.

Chanel’s Bombay Express make-up

Taking inspiration from the kajal of Indian make-up, Chanel has released its latest limited-edition cosmetics range, an ode to Indian princesses.

Each year, the Chanel Metiers d’Art fashion show celebrates the exceptional talent of these Houses, pairing their know-how with a legendary destination. Peter Philips, Creative Director of Chanel Make-up, has created a range that celebrates dark and light, with right black kohl and the shimmer of gold, in an eye pencil, lipstick and shadow — and a nail polish called Diwali, a shimmering mix of gold and silver that lights up your fingertips. The Route Des Indes powder compact is a golden powder embossed with the image of a piece of bronze brocade from an Indian-influenced collection created by Gabrielle Chanel in the 1960s.

It’s exclusive to Harvey Nichols Dubai, with prices from Dh138.

Carolina Herrera’s perfume giveaway

Lighten up your scent for summer (please, we can’t take all that Poison in this humidity). Carolina Herrera’s sunny fragrance is the flowery CH L’eau, and if you buy 100ml in July (at Faces, Al Shaya, Paris Gallery, Sephora, Iconic and Debenhams), you’ll get a free wicker summer basket. By the way, the New York-based designer just opened her latest UAE store in Al Ain last week.

Meanwhile, luxury organic candlemaker Neom is giving away a Pillow Mist for every Neom purchase from their outlets, which include Boutique 1, Bloomingdale’s, Talise spa at Madinat Jumeirah, SensAsia Urban Spas, Shangri La Abu Dhabi, Sharjah Ladies Club and Rotana Beach Hotel in Fujairah.

Jennifer Aniston’s Nomadic State of Mind sandals

Light, colourful and made from recycled material, these sandals were worn by Jennifer Aniston in her recent hippy-hideaway flick, Wanderlust. You don’t have to quit the rat-race to wear them, though — they’re Dh180 at, a regional online store with a mix of Turkish and international brands with a focus on handmade, quality and eco-friendly pieces.
