During the event, Maya put on a dazzling display in a sparkly black thigh-split gown, which she teamed up with matching stockings for the event which was held at the National Museum Of Qatar.

Maya joined social justice warrior, Bella, 26, who has previously been vocal about issues, appeared to be in the mood to party alongside her father Mohamed Hadid.

The event comes just weeks ahead of the Qatar World Cup, with the Arab state facing growing criticism over its treatment of women, migrant workers and LGBT people.

In recent weeks, Bella has spoken out on social media about the current protests in Iran, following the death of a young woman who died after being arrested by the morality police.

She shared several posts from human right activist and designer, Celine Semaan Vernon including her own impassioned message.

Since the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini was revealed, women across the Islamic Republic have been burning their hijabs, the head covering mandated by the Iranian government, and cutting their hair.

‘Our sisters are being murdered for the right to be. The right to exist in all their freedom, she wrote, ‘The freedom of choosing of their sovereignty over their own bodies. Unarmed, facing with police and their weapons. How can women make a militarized dominant majority so threatened and insecure?’

‘The control of our bodies is the same need to control our lands our earth. Patriarchy is the disease.’

Bella has also been vocal about her opinions on the geopolitical conflict between Israel and Palestine on social media in the past.

In one post, she said: ‘I feel a deep sense of pain for Palestine and for my Palestinian brothers and sisters today and everyday. watching these videos physically breaks my heart into 100 different pieces.

‘You cannot allow yourself to be desensitized to watching human life being taken. You just can’t. Palestinian lives are the lives that will help change the world. And they are being taken from us by the second. #FreePalestine.’

Qatar has faced intense scrutiny of the physical and contractual conditions for hundreds of thousands of migrant workers in the tiny emirate since the World Cup hosting rights were won 12 years ago.

It is yet to be seen how much time World Cup broadcasters will spend highlighting the allegations against the Qatari government, which include 2013 claims by The Guardian that workers were denied food, water, and were stripped of their passports.

Some allege they were not paid, or if they were, the payments were minimal and long overdue. A 2019 Daily Mirror investigation found that 28,000 workers were paid roughly $1 an hour over a 48-hour week.

Most damning, The Wall Street Journal reported in 2015 that over 1,200 workers died building the infrastructure for the tournament. Last year, The Guardian put that figure at closer to 6,500.

It also has strict laws on alcohol, drugs, public intimacy, relationships outside marriage, dress codes and swearing.

In March, FIFA president Gianni Infantino claimed Qatar has been progressive on labor rights: ‘I am pleased to see the strong commitment from the Qatari authorities to ensure the reforms are fully implemented across the labor market, leaving a lasting legacy of the FIFA World Cup long after the event, and benefiting migrant workers in the host country in the long term.’

Some campaigners have urged celebrities to boycott the World Cup, with Robbie Williams and David Beckham both coming under criticism for associating with the competition.

Robbie was recently unveiled as one of the music acts set to play at the Qatar Live concerts during a press conference in Doha.

Meanwhile, David agreed a £10million deal to become an ambassador for the country over a decade, which has resulted in him being the face of the World Cup 2022.
