22 Dazzling Dresses to Inspire Outfits for the 2022 Ball of Arabia Celebrating the Region’s Divas

Sharp shoulders, blinding metallics, dazzling sequins, and loud colors—it’s time to revive the best of 80s fashion at the 2022 Ball of Arabia. On December 15, the exciting gathering will celebrate the divas of Arabia, and what better way to do that than by dressing like one? The evening—held in partnership with Bulgari, Instagram, and hosted at Dubai’s Jumeirah Mina A’Salam—will also honor the careers of three women who have paved the way for younger talent in the region: Nabila Ebeed, Latifa, and Georgina Rizk.

For those looking for inspiration, look to the plethora of dresses, capes, and suits on the Fall 2022 collections which came in shiny materials, feathers, and embellishments in both, modest and shorter silhouettes.
