Kendall Jenner closes Elie Saab show at Paris Fashion Week



Lebanese designer Elie Saab packed out a specially constructed venue in Le Jardin de Tuileries in the heart of Paris on Saturday. Sitting front row at the spring/summer presentation was Kris Jenner. The 59-year-old reality television star nudged her boyfriend Corey Gamble, saying, “Look, here she comes” when her daughter Kendall Jenner appeared on the catwalk in one of Saab’s creations. True to the key codes of the maison, Saab’s collection was awash with lace and florals. Models floated down the ramp in romantic floor-sweeping broderie anglaise dresses, silk-crepe shifts and shorts. The colour palette flitted from angelic white to vivid azure and rose hibiscus. Accessories-wise, Saab’s newest handbag, ‘le 31’, made its debut. The rectilinear design of polished box-calf leather will be available in boutiques across the UAE in the coming months. Bringing the show to a close, model-of-the-moment Kendall Jenner lead the final procession in a black sequinned jumpsuit and gold tassle necklace.

How do Sim card scams work?

Sim swap frauds are a form of identity theft.

They involve criminals conning mobile phone operators into issuing them with replacement Sim cards by claiming to be the victim, often pretending their phone has been lost or stolen in order to secure a new Sim.

They use the victim's personal details - obtained through criminal methods - to convince such companies of their identity.

The criminal can then access any online service that requires security codes to be sent to a user's mobile phone, such as banking services.

Hili 2: Unesco World Heritage site

The site is part of the Hili archaeological park in Al Ain. Excavations there have proved the existence of the earliest known agricultural communities in modern-day UAE. Some date to the Bronze Age but Hili 2 is an Iron Age site. The Iron Age witnessed the development of the falaj, a network of channels that funnelled water from natural springs in the area. Wells allowed settlements to be established, but falaj meant they could grow and thrive. Unesco, the UN's cultural body, awarded Al Ain's sites - including Hili 2 - world heritage status in 2011. Now the most recent dig at the site has revealed even more about the skilled people that lived and worked there.
