Jessica Kahawaty and Rita Kahawaty Ace Mother-Daughter Dressing in Matching Dima Ayad Kaftans


Jessica Kahawaty recently made a case for the rare but sumptuous combination of white and gold for the month of Ramadan. Attending an event in Dubai, the Lebanese model and philanthropist took to the occasion in a twinning ensemble with her mother, chef Rita Kahawaty.


The mother-daughter duo was seen dressed in dazzling kaftans from fellow Lebanese Dima Ayad‘s namesake label, in complementing metallic shades. While Jessica’s piece of choice came with a panel of gold sequins on top of the white kaftan, her mother’s featured the same, but in silver. The sequins extended to the arms of both breezy numbers, before making way for sheer flute sleeves in white. Jessica completed her look with a matte gold choker, earrings, rings, and a bracelet by Bulgari, with a handbag and platform sandals in the same color. As for Rita, she too accessorized her kaftan with a matching dainty necklace and drop earrings from the Italian jeweler, and went for a metallic silver clutch.

Jessica also served up beauty inspiration with her glam for the day. Although wearing your hair down with a kaftan adds to the elegance of the piece, also consider tying it up in a high ponytail as the 33-year-old did for a sleeker finish. Not only did Jessica Kahawaty’s hairstyle balance out the voluminous kaftan, it also allowed its details—and her jewelry—to shine. For her makeup, Jessica kept it minimal with subtle winged liner, a pinky nude pout, and glowy skin topped off with subtle gold highlighter ideal for both iftar evenings and suhoor nights.
