Monroe For M.A.C

Monroe For M.A.C

The buzz from all over the world, right here!

With all the collaborations M.A.C does, we knew this was bound to come, and just surprised it took this long. Marilyn Monroe — the epitome of beauty and Hollywood glamour is the inspiration behind the brand’s latest limited edition collection that will be available at stores starting October 23. You can recreate her look with red lippies, mascara and false lashes from the collection. We totally heart the packing, and it is reason enough to buy some pieces before the collection sells out!

The Lance Armstrong Scandal

The world-famous cyclist known for his athletic achievements and triumph over cancer has lost his fans’ respect after news of his drug abuse broke out. The US-Anti Doping agency released a report that brought to light Armstrong’s malpractices — including surrounding himself with drug runners, bullying his teammates into using his methods, taking substances to boost his performance and covering his tracks. The report also talks about the large amounts of testosterone and blood transfusions that Armstrong took. Last heard, the cyclist pledged innocence… we wonder how he plans to prove it.

24-hour entertainment

We are so kicked that the malls will be staying open 24 hours during the two-week celebration of Eid. Which means, if you’ve been dreaming about a dress, you can actually just set off then and there and buy it. Not only that, you can keep yourself entertained any time you want. Vox Cinemas will be playing movies all through the day and night, and Magic Planet and Playnation will be open 24 hours on the weekends as well.

Jennifer Lawrence for 
Miss Dior

The Hunger Games star seems to have become the latest ‘it’ girl after the success of the movie. And the best way to know if you’ve arrived is when fashion houses start chasing you. In Jennifer Lawrence’s case, it is Dior. She has been named the new face of Miss Dior handbags. Insiders started speculating a connection when she was seated in the front row at the Dior show in July, and it turns out they were right. She will be modelling for their Spring/Summer 2013 campaign, and the ads are due to come out in print in March, though we suspect a leak way before that!

The Skinny on 

The Wedding Planner and Magic Mike hottie shocked everyone with his emaciated look recently. It was particularly shocking as most pictures that surfaced showed him next to his very pregnant wife Camila Alves. Before you start suspecting an eating disorder, you should know that the dedicated actor he is, the 30-pound weight loss is for his upcoming film — The Dallas Buyer’s Club — in which he plays an HIV patient. We love that he’s so sincere, but we can’t wait for him to get back to his hot self!

Wafi Under The Stars
Sunday evenings, post work, Wafi Mall is the place to be!

Starting October 21, they will be screening movies from different genres at 8:30 pm on their Rooftop Gardens. You can enjoy rom-coms like You’ve Got Mail and 50 First Dates, or thrillers like The Roommate and Ticking Clock. Settle into the beanbags with a big tub of popcorn and cola to enjoy a romantic evening with your date, or hang out with a bunch of friends. We highly recommend you head there a wee bit in advance to snag the best spots.
