A Diamond Encrusted Emirates Plane Is Shocking People, But All That Sparkles Is Not Real!

If you wanna know real luxury, one of the places you can visit is the UAE. Dubai is where luxury malls are a-plenty, the infrastructure is sky high (Yo Burj Khalifa, wassup?), and the cars are a Fast & Furious fantasy come true. The ladies may be clad as per Islamic customs, but their outfits are designer, exquisite ones with oodles of bling, shining as they step out of their Porsches and Lamborghinis.

Cradled in this lap of luxury, if you see a picture of an airplane encrusted with diamonds and precious stones, would you be stunned? Yes! But would you be surprised? Hell na!

That’s what happened when Emirates Airline’s official Twitter account shared this bling AF picture of the most glamourous airplane ever!

Rightly christened Bling 777!

Now you when that airline bling, it can only mean one thing! Twitter totally accepted that this weird flex just had to be from Dubai!

Airports already started making googly eyes at the plane! Here’s a tweet from Dulles Airport, Washington, USA!

Sing: You used to call me on my ATC, late night when you need my permission to land!

The other reactions were rather hilarious too!

From another #JustRichPeopleThings joke to turning the picture into a meme, we got everything!

A true connoisseur of art, this one!

Hey! Is there even a thing like too much highlighter?

This isn’t extra! Is it?

If anyone’s planning to get me anything for Christmas, I’m a size Swarovski-encrusted airplane!

These wings were made for flying!

Dekhna ka bhi charge lagega, maidam!


If there was anything that deserved this meme, it was this plane!

Now for everyone who’s been singing Gwen Stefani’s ‘If I was a rich girl’ in their head while looking at this plane, get ready for the most cliché heartbreak of all time. It is NOT REAL!

And indeed it is, just some really amazing, sparkly, shiny art! In fact, Emirates even tagged the artist in their tweet.

Sara Shakeel is a Pakistani dentist-turned-artist who is quite popular on Instagram for her sparkling artwork!

Sara had shared the picture on her Instagram!

In an interview with Forbes, Sara talked about why crystals and bling are a thing in her art.

“Crystals and diamonds are my mediums of looking through this world! Bright, shiny, valuable and something to be taken care of, you must have noticed how I add crystals and diamonds to the most ordinary objects of everyday life.”

And indeed, she does. Check out some of her work!

Oooh these fries would definitely come before guys!

Si bella!
