A new hotel has opened in Dubai - the One&Only One Za'abeel - and a whole host of stars attended the launch party on Friday night. 

Jennifer Lopez, 54, was one of the most famous attendees, rocking a black strapless Gambatista Valli ball gown which she accessorised with Sartoro emerald earrings and silver gloves.

The One&Only One Za'abeel is an exciting new arrival for Dubai, and is described as the world's "urban resort" to take note of. 

After JLo's performance, the party continued with Mark Ronson and Idris Elba on the decks.

Designed by Denniston’s Jean-Michel Gathy, the contemporary rooms and suites take their inspiration from Dubai’s desert landscapes, infused with a soothing colour palette and rich textural details.

Floor-to-ceiling windows are artfully orientated to capture Dubai's skyline, framing spectacular city sights.

Did JLo stay in Villa One? This exceptional one-off villa in the sky which features a kitchen, cinema, gym and outdoor swimming pool, creating an unrivalled penthouse in Dubai. 

It wouldn't surprise us - only the best for JLo!
