She was last in town to unveil the Dubai Stars in October, and now Sonam Kapoor is back in the UAE for another high-profile launch.

The Neerja actress arrived in Abu Dhabi this week, as part of her work fronting luxury brand Bulgari's Jannah high jewellery collection.

The line, which was created in collaboration with Sheikha Fatima bint Hazza bin Zayed Al Nahyan, was feted at a glitzy bash in the capital last night, with Kapoor in attendance.

"The first of its kind, with Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Hazza bin Zayed Al Nahyan of the ruling United Arab Emirates Royal Family and Bulgari, the Jannah Collection is the embodiment of both Bulgari and Her Highness’s joyful and passionate love for life and devotion to heritage," the Mumbai-born actress wrote on Instagram.

Kapoor, 34, also shared some shots taken in Abu Dhabi to celebrate the collection, which features diamond encrusted pieces enlivened with glimmering emeralds. The actress also sported a custom-made ivory sari in the images, from Indian designer Manish Malhotra.

It wasn't all business for Kapoor, however, with the Filmfare Award winner taking time for a little rest and relaxation.

The star shared a clip on her Instagram Stories of an ocean view from her hotel, which seems to be Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island (note the distinctive curved walkways and signature chairs and umbrellas lining the waterfront).

Kapoor appears to have been joined in the UAE by nutritionist and Pilates instructor Radhika Karle, who first shared the video, asking the actress if she fancied a "brisk walk".

Kapoor, who wed Anand Ahuja in 2018, also shared a look at what appears to be her breakfast, with Jumeirah's logo clear on the top of a cup of juice.

The actress, who appeared in The Zoya Factor, also tucked into a fresh fruit plate and a chia seed pudding, with a bread basket on the side.

It's unknown how long Kapoor will remain in the UAE following the Bulgari launch party, but we'll be keeping our eyes on her social media to see what else she gets up to in the capital before she leaves.
