When an Instagram story just isn’t enough…

As unabashed lovers of fashion, beauty and reality TV, this is very exciting news. (We’d imagine you feel similarly about at least a couple of those, otherwise what are you doing here?)

E! is launching a show about Middle East style influencers, and it’s launching at the end of December. It’s safe to say we’ll be tuning in.

You need to be following these local style stars
Two of our favourite Instagrammers took over Paris Fashion Week

Called My Fabulous M.E., it will follow six local social media stars going about their day-to-day lives. If you’re looking to monetize your Instagram, this is going to be appointment viewing. Hey, even if you’re just curious it’ll be interesting.


Sugar Rush Productions are behind the three-part show, PopSugar reports, which will show the women’s business dealings and family lives.

So who exactly will the show feature? We’re so glad you asked.

This Lebanese beauty expert also calls Dubai home. She’s a fiend for NARS and so are we, so we’re already fans. She’s got over a million fans on Instagram and half that on YouTube.
