Dorra Zarrouk’s Couture Look on the Beach Will Inspire You to Dress Up More on Holiday

Swimsuits, sarongs, and kaftans on a beach don’t warrant a double take, however, a couture gown definitely does. Case in point: Dorra Zarrouk, who took time out from her summer vacation in North Coast, Egypt to pose for a series of breathtaking pictures by the Mediterranean Sea.

Shared with the Tunisian actor’s 16.5 million Instagram followers, the photos see Zarrouk poised as ever against a backdrop of blue and white, dressed in a gown by Lebanese designer Tony Ward’s namesake couture house. The bold, figure-hugging black number featured a halter neck with a shimmering gold panel curving all the way down to the waist with a cut-out, as well as a thigh-high slit. The actor sported her signature slicked-back updo to complement the look, while graphic liner, rose gold eyelids, and a nude pout rounded out her glam for the day.

Zarrouk’s holiday wardrobe so far has consisted of breezy summer dresses, and brightly colored pieces in stark contrast with her latest look. While not all vacation-goers may have a photoshoot on their itinerary, a statement evening dress will do well going in your suitcase for those extra special nights with friends and family.
