A group of Russian women have hit back at a Dubai hotel’s complaints about their sexy photographs by staging a racy mannequin challenge on its forecourt.
The Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah, on the famous man-made palm islands off the UAE resort city of Dubai, was annoyed at being geo-tagged in social media posts after a group of women stayed there.
Hotel management complained that some of the pictures and videos they shared with their millions of followers looked like something from a lingerie catalogue or an adult movie.
Some of the photographs show the women posing in bathtubs and coming down to breakfast in their dressing gowns and with their hair in curlers.
The Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah promotes itself as a family hotel and its administration said it was mainly concerned about the comfort of their guests.
They continued: ‘We do not want to see our geolocation [to show] photos of girls in semi-naked and erotic poses.
‘Let the photograph simply state the location as Dubai.’
In retaliation, the women staged a display of flesh-flashing outside the hotel’s front door in a mannequin challenge.
A drone filmed several women, including actress Anna Kalashnikova, 44, model Victoria Bonya, 37, and reality star Alena Shishkova, 24, posing around several supercars and a little red Lada.
