27-year-old Yemeni singer Balqees Fathi performed a live duet with iconic tenor Andrea Bocelli in Abu Dhabi on Friday night—and it wasn’t just her vocals that stunned.

Balqees Fathi wore a floor-sweeping, ivory gown embellished with feathers signed Christian Siriano for the special occasion. The Mabrouk singer looked elegant with her chocolate-brown tresses raked back into a tight, face-framing half-up ponytail that was secured at the crown of her head, while the remainder of her thick, luscious mane fell into loose waves that hung past her shoulders. The hairstyle created the appearance of larger-than-life hair without any backcombing, and maintained the polished elegance of an updo without compromising the effortless appeal of strands that are left down.

Fathi’s almond peepers were accentuated with a brown smokey eye and fluttery, brow-grazing false eyelashes, while her waterline was emphasized with a white kohl pencil—a trompe l’œil trick to create the illusion of bigger eyes. Her beautiful complexion was kept matte, while a dusting of bronzer along the hollows of her cheekbones and down the sides of her nose emphasized her chiseled features. Fathi completed her polished look with a swivel of nude lipstick and perfectly groomed brows. Get the singer’s look with our edit of beauty buys below.
