Rihanna hosted her first make-up masterclass at the Armani Hotel in Dubai this weekend, but she wasn’t the only famous face at the event.

Halima Aden, who made history as the first hijab-wearing fashion model to walk international fashion shows, showed her support at Rihanna’s first talk in Dubai.

The event hosted 200 people and tickets for  the event ranged from AED 1,000 to AED 7,500.

“The generous queen @badgirlrhirhi,” she captioned the snap of the pair of them pouting.

Halima was seen sporting Fenty Beauty’s latest release, the new black Stunna lip shade called ‘Uninvited’.

The Somali-American model has modelled for the likes of Yeezy and Alberta Ferretti.

This isn’t the first time Halima’s jetted into the UAE. The cover girl was flown into the Emirates last April for the Arabian Travel exhibition, where she posed with a falcon in Etihad Airways’ three-room suite.

“My new falcon friend and I take Dubai,” she captioned the image.

She also made time to head to Abu Dhabi, where she stayed at the Rosewood hotel in Al Maryah Island.

With Modest Fashion Week around the corner, maybe Halima might hang around in the UAE?
