On The Real Housewives of Dubai Season 2, Episode 4, Chanel Ayan throws a queens' dinner. Or is it dinner for queens? A dinner with queens? Either way, guests of the self-appointed Queen of Dubai arrive dressed to impress.

This had us thinking: Can anyone throw a party like that? Turns out, the answer is yes! So, we put together this shoppable list of dresses and accessories inspired by Ayan's event. Even adding just one to your wardrobe will surely make you feel like royalty. Period. Dot.

The V.V.I.P.'s invitees included Caroline StanburyCaroline BrooksLesa MilanSara al Madani, Sara's friend Saba, and new cast member Taleen Marie, each of whom entered the Dubai dinner party in exquisite style. Despite the desert heat, they rocked black cocktail dresses and gowns. Pearls, sparkles, and all manner of baubles completed their outfits.

Ayan arrived earlier than her dinner companions, to which she said, "If these girls are going to be late, I'm going to have fun on my own." The result? An incredible montage of the RHODubai 'Wife playing percussion on her plate with her silverware and dancing alone next to the fountain while the maitre'd giggled. 

When Ayan's dinner guests eventually showed up, she was surprised to see that not everyone was wearing a crown. "I said 'everybody come as a queen,'" she noted. To Ayan's delight, Caroline Brooks showed up rocking a hair accessory with a very royal vibe. "She understood the assignment! You're the only one that came in the way I wanted you to come," Ayan said as Brooks arrived.

For the record, Caroline Stanbury also showed up with a tiara a few moments later. Still, there seemed to be some confusion over the requested attire.

"Wait... that was not in the memo," Sara elaborated in an interview during the episode. "I don't think Ayan gives a dress memo out so clearly because she wants to like, you know, look better than all of us."
