We really need more ball-gown occasions in our lives.

At its best, fashion can be transformative. The right outfit can promise a completely different life, and right now, we’re imagining lives that include film premieres in the south of France.

After all, who among us wouldn’t want to wear an Zuhair Murad ball gown on the red carpet at Cannes?

Murad isn’t the only Lebanese designer making big moves at the film festival, though. Please join us for a look at the latest hits from Cannes.

Supermodel Izabel Goulart went for this super fresh V-neck jumpsuit from Elie Saab for a daytime event. We love her soft hair and makeup.

And we probably don’t need to sell you that hard on Bella Hadid in this slinky vintage silver number. Make sure you check out the other picture in that Instagram post—the gown has a beautiful low back. Very elegant.

Natasha Poly went for an edgier look in this black number with a high neck and sheer skirt.

Nicholas Jebran

We love a yellow moment, and this Nicholas Jebran gown on Dubai-based style influencer Karen Wazen is a perfect example. Gorgeous.

Zuhair Murad

Tunisian actress Dorra Zarrouk should be printing out this picture and putting it on her fridge. The drama of the skirt, the fit, the neckline… it’s an absolute hit.

So too is this eye-catching number on French model Cindy Bruna. What a colour, what a skirt. It’s a dream.

And that’s why Alessandra Ambrosio is a supermodel. Her jewels are de Grisogono.

Ashi Studio
