What Dorra Zarrouk, Salma Abu Deif, Nelly Karim, and More Wore to the 44th Cairo International Film Festival’s Opening

The 44th edition of the Cairo International Film Festival took off yesterday, bringing together some of the Arab world’s most loved stars. On the red carpet, actors dazzled in gowns ranging from classic to contemporary glamour.

Egyptian actor Dorra Zarrouk made an appearance in a sculptural creation by Rami Al Ali, while Nelly Karim wore a bold red strapless number by Nazazy. Former Vogue Arabia cover star Yousra made a case for kaftans on the red carpet in a black, feather-trimmed one paired with an emerald necklace. Statement jewelry was also worn by Jordanian actor Saba Mubarak, who paired her textured grey gown with a vintage necklace by Egyptian jeweler Azza Fahmy.

A number of stars who took the minimalistic route include Nour, who wore a pink, floor-grazing dress with long caped sleeves, and AlRawabi School for Girls star Rakeen Saad, who opted for a strapless black number with a slit. Channeling cool-girl style, Tara Emad. Salma Abu Deif, and Huda El Mufti offered edgier versions of a red carpet look with Emad wearing a sequin-encrusted one-shoulder Chanel dress, Abu Deif in a column skirt and corset outfit, and El Mufti in a YSL blazer dress and lace trousers.
