Jessica Kahawaty hosts property launch in Dubai
Lebanese-Australian beauty queen and TV host Jessica Kahawaty on Thursday hosted the launch event for luxury property developer Omniyat’s latest project in Dubai.
Omniyat, in collaboration with Dorchester Collection, unveiled plans for private residences in the city, in a glittering event at the Dubai International Financial Center.
Kahawaty, a lawyer who now hosts TV shows and events around the region, wore a stunning deep-blue Rami Al-Ali dress and took to the red carpet before the big reveal to strut her stuff.
“What a surreal moment it was to host and reveal @omniyatofficial big launch with @dorchestercollection for Dubai under the iconic DIFC gate. The plans take Dubai to the next level! Thank you for having me,” she posted on Instagram after the event.
Dubai-based developer Omniyat and the London-based Dorchester Collection will create a 5-star hotel and luxury housing on the banks of Dubai canal.
Dorchester Collection owns properties in London, Paris, Milan, Rome and Los Angeles and this is its first foray into the Middle East.
The move marks Omniyat’s continued efforts to secure high-end partnerships and comes after similar agreements with The Langham and ME by Melia.
Kahawaty lent star-appeal to the evening, building on her success as a former host of Project Runway Middle East and winner of the Miss World Australia 2012 pageant.
The star is also heavily involved in charity work and regularly travels the world as a brand ambassador for high-end labels.
