All set to pop in front of the cameras, Balqees Fathi drenched herself in sparkling gold sequins for her recent night out in Cairo. Styled by Cedric Haddad, the star was seen in a body-skimming Dolce & Gabbana gown that featured a simple round neck and full sleeves. Despite its fuss-free silhouette, the evening gown served as a celebratory superhero, catching the light each time Balqees moved and illuminating her face as cameras flashed.

Instead of opting for delicate jewelry, Balqees added more drama to her ensemble by way of chunky gold hoop earrings, complete with gemstone detailing and the iconic DG logo at the front. As for her beauty look, Fathi shook up her Parisian lob into a slightly choppier, messier look, allowing her bangs to frame her face. Beautifully bronzed cheeks, terracotta lips and metallic smoky eyes completed her party-ready look.
