Quite a few, it seems.
Lights, cameras and glamour – that’s what you can expect to find on any red carpet.
However, more often than not you can also add something else to that list: Middle Eastern designers.
From Elie to Zuhair and beyond, fashion labels from the region have dominated awards show, premieres and glitzy parties in recent years.
Here, we’ve rounded up some of the latest looks from Arab designers for you to coo over…
Queen Rania in Reemami
زيادة الوعي بقضية التنمر في المدارس أمر في غاية الأهمية لأنه يمس طفولة العديد من أبنائنا. شكراً للفنان الأردني عزيز مرقة على حملة #لا_للتنمر التي تشجع الطلاب على إيجاد حلول للقضاء على هذه الظاهرة #تعليم #الأردن #حب_الأردن It is crucial to raise awareness about the effects of bullying in schools, a problem capable of destroying our students’ childhoods. Thanks to Jordanian artist, Aziz Maraka, for launching the “Say No to Bullying” Campaign #Education #Jordan #LoveJO
The Jordanian royal sported a skirt by UAE label Reemami to the launch of an anti-bullying campaign. With its knotted detailing, the piece was imbued with maritime chic (and teamed with a Tibi top, FYI).
Emily Blunt in Elie Saab
The English actress looked picture-perfect in this tiered lace midi from the Lebanese designer at a London premiere. We adore the graphic embroidery against the delicate fabric.
Winnie Harlow in Zuhair Murad
The Lebanese label blended fierce tailoring and an ultra-feminine print in this Pre-Fall tuxedo, as worn by the model.
Fan Bingbing in Georges Hobeika
The beautiful @bingbing_fan attending the @debeersofficial senior Jewellery series press conference in a green, silk tulle gown with a draped off-the-shoulder capped sleeves and embroidered with silver and green crystals, sequins, and beads from GEORGES HOBEIKA ’s spring Summer 2018 couture collection #fanbingbing #georgeshobeika
The Chinese actress was imbued with Old Hollywood charm at this press conference, thanks to the Lebanese design’s sweeping off-shoulder, frothy tulle and reams of beading.
Miranda Lambert in Georges Chakra
The country singer had a lady in red moment at the Academy of Country Music Awards, with this glamorous fusion of floor-sweeping skirt and sequinned bodice.
Mishel Prada in SemSem
Abeer Al Otaib’s label came up trumps with this printed co-ord. We feel like we haven’t seen the peplum in some time, and now we want to wear little else.
Emily Blunt in Semsem
The Mary Poppins star also turned to the Egyptian designer’s collection while in the British capital, sporting this colour-blocked combo.
