Balqees Fathi Drenched Herself in Gold for an Unforgettable Performance at the FIFA World Cup 2022 Finale

Last night, all eyes were on Qatar, where the much-awaited FIFA World Cup finale between Argentina and France took place. Prior to Argentina’s spectacular win, fans at Doha’s Lusail Stadium—and those watching on TV screens across the globe—were treated to several big moments, one of which was a musical performance featuring a host of musicians, including Balqees Fathi.

For her routine in the midst of the grand celebration, the Emirati musician made sure to pick a look that stood out. Not one to do things halfway, Fathi opted for a head-to-toe gold Valentino Couture ensemble. Her picks: a high neck, full sleeved bodysuit, topped off with a voluminous tasseled cape that glistened under the spotlights. Keeping with the molten metal aesthetic, the actor paired the outfit with matching pointed toe heels that blended perfectly with her bodysuit.

No stage costume is complete without the right accessories, however, and Balqees made sure to make a statement with her add-ons. Along with unconventional rings by Yeprem, the singer sported a piece of winding gold headgear that resembled a serpent. With her hair tied back, Balqees Fathi amped up her beauty look with a shimmery smoky eye, perfectly sculpted cheekbones, and creamy pink lips. In case you missed her performance, here’s a little snippet.
