Safa Siddiqui is Dubai Bling's resident clothes queen, regularly *killing* it in the style stakes alongside her fellow cast members. So with the first season of the show over, we thought we'd dive a bit more into Safa Siddiqui's life—while we eagerly await news of a second season (fingers crossed!)
Netflix's latest foray into luxury brings viewers to the United Arab Emirates, where Siddiqui and the rest of the Dubai Bling cast provide us with a sneak peek into their opulent and fabulous worlds. (Spoiler alert: the Dubai Bling cast net worth is a pretty accurate indication of the series' overall glitz and glamour.) Not only is there wealth a-plenty, but there's also lots of drama amongst the high-flying social circle; all set against the backdrop of the ever-impressive Dubai cityscape.
Safa Siddiqui, one of reality TV's newcomers, zipped quickly into our Netflix binge queues in her grey Lambo—but who is this designer-clad socialite? Allow us to introduce you.
Who is Safa Siddiqui from 'Dubai Bling'?
Although Safa Siddiqui began her career in the corporate environment of real estate, she had always dreamt of making it in the fashion design world. (Her glorious and impressive wardrobe of Louis Vuitton and Hermès likely gave that desire away.) In order to help make that happen, Safa from Dubai Bling relocated to—you guessed it—Dubai.
"I have always loved fashion and wanted to design clothes for as long as I can remember," she told Cosmopolitan Middle East (opens in new tab). "People around me have always admired my sense of style. I was the person friends and family came to for fashion advice."
During her break from her previous professional life, the Iraqi-British transplant decided it was finally time to give fashion a go, and we see her new career—and debut fashion show—unfold during the first season of Dubai Bling.
"Relocating to a new place is always a huge risk," Siddiqui further told Cosmo. "The biggest fear I had was moving to Dubai and having that failure haunt me for the rest of my life. However, as soon as I got to Dubai, I recognized the city for what it truly is, the land of growth and opportunities."
Safa Siddiqui age: how old is she?
Born on August 7, 1990, in London, UK, Dubai Bling's Safa is 32 years old (and a Leo for the astrologically curious). She is one of the younger cast mates on Dubai Bling, alongside fellow thirtysomethings Loujain Adada, who is 33, and Zeina Khoury, 39, to name just a few faces of the show.
Safa Siddiqui net worth: what is it?
There are many estimates about Safa Siddiqui's net worth floating around the internet, with various outlets reporting from $180,000 to $1.28 million. That's obviously a wide range, but we're guessing that the real figure falls somewhere in the middle.
Her income is largely from her previous real estate career, brand deals on her social media, and of course, her Dubai Bling income. Her wealth is also believed to be in part thanks to her husband and his income.
Although she might not be the wealthiest cast member on the show quite yet, perhaps come Dubai Bling season 2, the up-and-coming designer will have successfully launched her luxury fashion brand. Time will tell how everything will play out in the City of Gold!
Safa Siddiqui husband: who is she married to?
Safa Siddiqui is married to Fahad Siddiqui, who she met eight years ago in Dubai. The couple tied the knot in 2019. Like Safa, Fahad himself is no stranger to wealth, as he's gifted his wife with a beautiful Dubai home, a private chef and name-brand clothes for her wardrobe.
Safa and Fahad share a two-year-old daughter, Alina—and, on the series finale of Dubai Bling, Safa announced that she was pregnant with their second child! The reality star gave birth in December 2022 to another daughter, though she hasn't yet revealed the adorable little one's name.
The decision for the pair to have another child was a point of contention throughout the first season, with Safa feeling like she wasn't quite ready to go through a pregnancy again, given that her first one had been difficult. We're hoping all was smooth this time around then!
Though things seem rosy for the couple, if you ask Dubai Bling co-star Ebraheem al Samadi, it's all superficial: "She married a rich guy, spends his money, and talks about people," he candidly revealed on the new series. Welp, what would reality TV be without petty jealousy and a helping of drama, right?
The first season of Dubai Bling is now streaming on Netflix. Catch other shows like Bling Empire and Dubai Bling for more jaw-dropping glitz and glam.
