On Sunday night, Egypt hosted one of the most monumental parades celebrating the relocation of Egyptian royal mummies from the Egyptian Museum in Cairo’s Tahrir to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization in Fustat (NMEC). Dubbed the Pharaohs’ Golden Parade, the event was adorned with references to ancient Egyptian culture, from the outfits worn by Arab celebrities and performers to the music.
Actor Youssra channeled Egyptian royalty in a white gown with blue accents from Tony Ward’s fall 15-16 couture collection and golden jewelry including earrings by Dima jewelry and a headpiece. In the video showcased at the parade documenting the event’s historical importance, Cairo-based Tunisian actor Hend Sabri made an appearance in a teal and gold Marmar Halim dress while Egyptian actor Nelly Karim wore a white and gold gown by Nour Azazy that featured a sweeping train. Other participating celebrities included Egyptian actor Mona Zaki who wore a royal blue dress paired with a statement necklace and Nardine Farag who was dressed in a red jumpsuit from Zuhair Murad’s SS20 collection inspired by Egypt.
