Hopefuls aim to be face of Real People ad campaign
Divya and Maysa Badri Imam
Dubai’s young (and not-so-young) hopefuls gathered at Oasis Centre last Saturday to audition to be New Look’s next campaign star, with the overall winner soon to be whizzed off to London for a photo shoot. Participants ranged from 18- year-olds to fortysomethings and, while we spotted some true baby faces, we were also happy to see ladies in the higher age range strutting their stuff. There were professional make-up artists, DJs and photographers on hand to turn Oasis Centre’s usually quiet atrium into a very glamorous spot. Saturday’s audition was one of three, with Thursday and Friday’s events also drawing the crowds – more than 700 real women auditioned in total. Want to know who wins? Keep an eye on our Shopping and Style section and we’ll let you know as soon as we find out.
