After a prolonged hiatus, red carpet events are back in full swing and Arab designers are taking centre stage.

To mark the 75th Cannes Film Festival, a host of A-listers have stepped out in showstopping ensembles championing talented designers from the region.

By raising the fashion bar high, each celebrity stunned in an array of signature looks, presented with a breath of fresh air.

Georges Hobeika

After being seen on several Cannes Film Festival red carpets, the regional designer makes another stunning impression with dazzling gowns on two renowned women. Lebanese TV presenter, Raya Abirached, was seen in an elegant strapless blue gown from Hobeika and a side wave, paired with jewellery from Bvlgari.

At the Top Gun: Maverick screening, actress and social media star Liza Koshy was seen in a Fall/Winter 2021 Couture gown embellished with crystal droplets and embroidery designed with immaculate attention to detail.

Rami Al Ali

By steering the way in the world of haute couture, Rami Al Ali’s bespoke designs have undoubtedly made their rounds on social media. This year several stars were seen adorned in the Dubai-based designer’s creations on the red carpet.

Reality TV star Hina Khan attended Cannes for the second time and was seen in a fitted bodice and flowy ensemble by the leading designer. Celebrity stylist Maya Williams also took to the red carpet in a Rami Al Ali design – a green satin halterneck gown.
