Having played a major role in kickstarting the Egyptian entertainment industry decades ago and going on to represent Arab cinema on a global scale, Yousra‘s icon status has only cemented itself further over the years. “I just always wanted to be impressive,” Yousra once shared with Vogue Arabia. “If people don’t appreciate your work and don’t see you as a legend, you will never be a legend. You have to understand that you are working for people and that you have to be working to their expectations.”
As Vogue Arabia continues to highlight such voices of change, the Egyptian actor, singer, and philanthropist has joined us on many special occasions — from our third anniversary issue, to our #BuyArabDesigners initiative championing local talent.
In celebration of the star’s birthday today (March 10), we look back on her best moments in Vogue Arabia.
