We are all struggling to cope with the economic crisis which has enveloped most industries in the country. The auto industry, one of the largest employers in the manufacturing sector, is going through its worst phase ever. So many units have shut down and left so many jobless. It is a similar situation in most sectors. The incomes are at the lowest, and so is the spending. Bad news for the…

actress and society stalwart suzie demetri robertson

‘I am a member of the Arabian Gazelles, which really must be the only ladies-only supercar club of its kind’ It’s no wonder Kris Jenner comparisons immediately pop up when you talk about Dubai-based powerhouse Suzie Demetri Robertson. The immaculately-turned out brunette, whose palatial Emirates Hills home is like a film set and resort in one, has a multitude of titles – she’s an actor, a model, a wife, a mum-of-three, a momager and now, she’s added executive producer to her CV. The release of this British-born beauty’s passion project – the first independent film she’s ever produced, a drama directed by Jacques Brown – seems to mirror her own life as it’s full of fast cars and fancy spots showcasing a fabulous life in the sun. Another point of comparison with the…
