As you may already know, last week Bahrain held one of the most prestigious jewellery exhibitions in the region Jewellery Arabia Show, which I was very lucky to attend it for the first time. You can view previous post here. The night I arrived to Bahrain, I was invited to Jewellery Arabia 2013 Gala Dinner, which was held at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. So around 9PM, TheOverdressed, one of my favorite fashion bloggers in the region, picked me up from the hotel and off we went to the gala dinner. Needless to say she looked absolutely gorgeous in her emerald green crepe wool dress with flounced hemline and decorative beaded button from Erdem. She cleverly paired it with a shrunken jacket by the same brand, and a matching Nancy Gonzalez clutch. As for me, I chose to go for my Simon Rocha gigantic one side ruffled skrit, paired with my favorite Alaia sandals, layered pearl necklaces, a crepe black top by COS, and my Tonya Hawks clutch.
The formal sit-down gala dinner attracted over 300 distinguished guests that included participants of the exhibition, members of the diplomatic community stationed in the Kingdom of Bahrain, and professionals from the jewellery and watches industry. The gala dinner also included several performances by Brazilian professional dancers, It felt like a preview of a Rio carnival. They were amazing. The food?! Yummy, I got carried away a bit with the lebanese appetizers, lost count of how many kubba's I had. Oh well, never count your claories when Im travelling, that would ruin the moment.
Anyhow, the below two photos were taken from TheOverdressed.com.
