Dubabes

Walking around Mall of the Emirates today, I noticed an interesting and relatively new phenomenon- the sight of young, sexy Emirati ladies wearing the latest in international fashions (usually consisting of tight tight jeans or mini miniskirts) and a barely-there abaya. They stood out to me much more than just the average Western girl simply because they wore this one extra item of clothing. Some may call this controversial and hypocritical because an abaya is supposed to exist to deflect male attention, but I simply call it the new Dubabes phenomenon. They're hot!

Yeah, and the white-berobed guys in Vincents and Trader Vics chugging the Johnnie Walker Gold with the Maghrib mercenaries sitting on their knees aren't locals, either. Or so I've been told.

Just because a woman is wearing a shaila and/or 3abaya doesn't mean she is emarati... full stop

Though just today my class entered the room laughing and chattering in Arabic, and I asked them what the buzz was. They were reluctant to spill, but said they were laughing at a student in the next class room who had really, really tight jeans and a revealing top on and a "see through" panel in the back of her abaya. They said she was strutting around wiggling her b&tt. We discussed the whole thing, and they said it's not that unusual, but they thought it really funny in a university setting. So there's at least one Emirati girl doing it.

hte implication that most of these women are Emarati is a lie. Many of these are other arabs and GCC people looking to attract a rich emirati or khaliji.

revealing tops? yes, occasionally; tight jeans? yes, not unusual, but not more or less than other girls in general. however mini skirts??? No way. I've lived here many years and I see emirati girls daily at my work and I never never saw one in a mini skirt. but using some hyperactive imagaination you can see whatever you want!
