There was one strict dress code… ALL WHITE!
The event took place at the Siddharta Lounge, opposite Buddha Bar at the Grosvenor Hotel and the venue matched the theme perfectly as the interiors are mostly white with splashes of gold, making it feel clean, plush and elegant.
On one hand it felt like a simple, cool beach bar... but on the other hand it was an upmarket, James Bond-esque, international venue, and would be the perfect location for the classic 'charming boy meets sophisticated girl' in every romantic Hollywood movie ever made.
The white glasses, white chairs and white lighting make it sound like a waiting room at the dentist, but the interior designer has pulled it off beautifully.
Some of the hottest Dubai-based fashionistas were there and I got the chance to catch up two of my favourite editors, Sarah Hedley Hymers of Ahlan magazine and Alison Tay of Grazia Magazine.
In the end, Philips let their product do the talking...and I've found myself repeatedly running my tongue across my teeth for the last few days. I'm amazed how much cleaner they feel! I won't be able to go back to a normal toothbrush!
