The founder of Telegram met with the leadership of the United Arab Emirates. Russian billionaire hosted UAE Prime Minister and Emir of Dubai Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and crown prince of the emirate. Posted photos from the meeting on social media. Saeed Suleiman, head of the protocol department of the Khalifa government (part-time cousin of the emir). He accompanied the pictures with a low-key comment: “The royal family welcomes the founder of Telegram.” What was discussed at the meeting, when it took place, is not reported, as well as what was the reason for its holding.

Pavel Durov received UAE citizenship in 2021, and last year was recognized as the richest businessman in the United Arab Emirates according to Forbes magazine. His fortune is estimated at 15.1 billion dollars.

This is not the first meeting of the billionaire with representatives of the royal family. In February 2021, Durov met with the Crown Prince of Dubai, Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

Durov does not spoil the world with frequent appearances, so each of its outputs is closely examined. This time, many noticed a badge on the lapel of the black jacket – the new UAE logo, the elections of which took place two years ago.

Massive black sneakers received special attention. With a high probability This is a Reebok Zig Kinetica 2.5 Ed model. The cost for such a person as Pavel Durov is not serious – from 85 to 130 euros (6300-9600 rubles).

Stylist and accessories designer Anna Skorokhodova evaluates the image of the Russian billionaire as appropriate, but at the same time requiring minor improvements.

The image of Pavel Durov is appropriate and adapted to the situation, would have looked like a flirtation if he had chosen a classic dress for the meeting. The only thing I would like to change in Durov’s cut is to add an accent element, for example, a bright tie or accent leather shoes. Sneakers for a suit have already become a classic combination, but in this case, I would recommend increasing the length of the trousers so that they cover at least 1/4 of the sneakers.

According to the designer, the pictures from the meeting are an example of the harmonious interaction of two different cultures.

– Looking at the images of the representatives of the royal family of the United Arab Emirates and Pavel Durov, we see an example of the integration of two different cultureswhich, despite different ideas about fashion, traditions, values ​​and religion, offer a trend for the development of multiculturalism. Sheikhs are sitting in traditional white robes and sandals, and Pavel Durov is in a suit and sneakers – and it all comes down to a trend of convenient interaction, which is so important at negotiations of this level, – Anna Skorokhodova emphasized.
