Golden Girls

 

 

Christmas Eve is the night of gift giving in many countries (not counting Santa’s midnight global run). The tradition goes all the way back to the very first Christmas with the three wise men brings gifts to the baby Jesus – frankincense, myrrh and, of course, gold. Fashionistas have been bringing gold to the Maldives all year round and here is a little post-advent collection of them as Maldives Complete’s yuletide gift to you all…

Sitting on the Dock the BAE

Unknown jetty sitting

Today in history, the musical world lost legend Otis Redding when he died in a plane crash. It was just before the release of his album and title song “Dock of the Bay” which went on to become the first posthumous album to hit #1 on the Billboard hit chart (in fact, he had just finished recording it three days earlier). The song that would be one of his most famous hits was almost universally panned by his label, band and even his wife, but he felt strongly it would be a hit. The song captured that serene feeling of looking out over a tranquil expanse of water that is a popular photoshoot point for the Maldives fashionistas attempting to depict that same sense of “watching the tide roll away”…

Giving the Pink Slip to Breast Cancer

While the colour of the Maldives might be blue, the colour of the month is pink. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and today is a special awareness day for metastic breast cancer. Sporting pink has become the de rigeur fashion for women joining the breast cancer awareness crusade in events like the Race for Life and the Moon Walk. Here are a collection of Maldives fashionista sporting the cancer-fighting team colours, one for every day of the month, including Liz Hurley sporting a Breast Cancer Awareness t-shirt and video in the Maldives in the video at top…

Sand Siesta

Kristin Ullmann (Germany) - Anantara Kihavah Villas

We’ve often said that first-timers to the Maldives should stay at the lowest-grade property they think they can stand because the Maldives all by itself, without the deluxe resorts, is a 5-star experience.  You could stay in a card board box on the beach and it would feel like one of the most luxurious holiday of your life.  The fashionista crowd certain find the beach of flour-soft sand to be as comfortable as any high thread count bed…

Postcards from the Edge…Of the Swimming Pool

Tatiana Korsakova (Russia) – Halaveli

The backdrop de rigeur for the Maldives photoshoots is the water.  Sometimes the beach, sometimes the jetty over the lagoon, and sometimes the increasingly ubiquitous pools for lounging around…
