Last week Bella Hadid faced a scandal when she posted a controversial photo on her Instastory of her shoe held up in front of Saudi Arabia and UAE Airlines aircrafts.
While celebrities are used to these kind of scandals and many thought this would blow over in a couple of days especially after Hadid posted an apology, but the GCC has unexpectedly taken a very serious action.

“I want to send a sincere apology to those who ever thought I would put the blame on them, especially to Saudi Arabia and the UAE… This was never the case, and I hope you can understand the misunderstanding,” she wrote.
According to the Gulf News, Dior stores across the Gulf region have pulled down all campaign shots of Bella Hadid. “For appeasement, Parfums Christian Dior has removed its visuals of Bella Hadid in the GCC,” the publication was told.
In response to the boycotting of Hadid, UAE malls have responded with the following…
“We uphold the values of our nation and Saudi Arabia with the highest respect and regard. We have brought the matter to the attention of the retailers to take appropriate steps,” said a spokesperson for The Dubai Mall.
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Mall of the Emirates said: “A recent incident with a model for one of the brands at Mall of the Emirates is in no way associated with the mall, and does not reflect our values.”
We ensure that our nation and region’s cultural sensitivities are respected. We have brought the matter to the attention of the retailers concerned to take appropriate steps.

Princess Nourah bint Saad Becomes First Saudi Woman to Head Sports Club
Princess Nourah bint Saad is now officially the first Saudi woman to head a sports club after successfully acquiring the Umbrian football club Spoleto.
During her speech at a press conference, the princess thanked her hosts for their hospitality and outlined her ambitious plans for the team’s future.
“Football is a family passion, and Italian football is followed all over the world. This is why I chose to invest in Umbria,” she said at a press conference.”
She further explained the aspects that made her choose this club in specific, “Spoleto is a small, amateur football organization where it is possible to work with the aim of growing and aiming for promotion,” the Princess added. “But we cannot fail to consider the value and beauty of the city of Spoleto, which is famous throughout the world.”
This purchase is the second venture for the Saudi royal into sports club ownership, as Prince Abdullah bin Musa’ad co-owns English Premier League football club Sheffield United.
We are proud to witness Saudi women achieving such remarkable milestones, what with Yasmeen Al Miamani becoming the first female commercial pilot just last month, Aseel Al Hamad making history by becoming the first-ever Saudi female F1 driver and now this!
We are filled with pride and hope that this could encourage more women to taken on challenging jobs in various fields.

The guest list was long what with the full Jonas clan of course, Joe’s brothers Nick, Kevin and Frankie, along with Nick and Kevin’s wives Priyanka Chopra and Danielle Jonas.
Model Ashley Graham, Dr. Phil and American DJ Diplo were also spotted in attendance, along with Sophie Turner bestie from Game of Thrones and maid of honor Maisie Williams, who was missing from the Vegas celebration.
Priyanka Chopra who never failed to impress! Looked gorgeous dressed in two looks by the Saudi designer Honayda. The first look was a metallic button-front dress from the designer’s spring/summer 2019 collection, and the other one was a satin white gown, worn for the pre-wedding rehearsal dinner.
Honayda Serafi is a born-and-raised Saudi designer, who jetted off to the Parsons in Paris before taking the fashion world by storm.
