Alongside sample sales, Douglas Booth and a nice cup of tea, one of life’s greatest pleasures is dressing up. Lucky for me, then, that Halloween in Dubai is something they don’t do by halves. Not that I’d expect anything less from a city where big is good but bigger is best. Last year’s debauched Last Tuesday Society ball in London was going to take some beating, but the 5,000-strong shindig at Zero Gravity was happily up to the challenge. With a Dhs5,000 prize in the balance, I decided to get the big guns out, looking to make-up empresarios Inglot and the best hair stylist in Dubai, Jehnna Mahoney, to help me on my mission to become a Dia de los Muertos princess. And yes, that is a Barbie in my hair. Subtlety? Er, no thanks.
