CAFÉ SOCIETY: Models including Karolina Kurkova, Petra Nemcova and Marcus Schenkenberg, along with football player Didier Drogba, gathered in Dubai Wednesday night to celebrate the opening of Vogue Café.
Situated inside what’s billed as the world’s largest shoe store, Level Shoe District, in The Dubai Mall, it’s the second Vogue Café in the world, after Moscow. “The Middle East is an exciting market for us,” commented Stuart Nielsen, director of restaurants at Condé Nast International. “We will soon be announcing further expansion plans within the UAE.”
Guests sampled canapés of miniature Vogue Café staples like Maine lobster roll and chocolate and hibiscus truffle.
