To view the show during the day, Wazen opted for a dress in pale yellow from the British fashion house, which featured a fitted bodice with zip detailing at the neck, balloon sleeves, and a pleated, flared-out skirt fit for a modern-day princess vibe. Balancing the look and adding a touch of maturity to it, the mother-of-three went for black pumps whose pointed toes were adorned with studs. The choice of footwear also complemented her second outfit for the evening. This time embracing a grungier aesthetic, Wazen looked to the fail-safe head-to-black look, but stepped it up a notch by incorporating not one, but two sustainable leather pieces. Her black bandeau top was topped off with a matching belted coat, and paired with straight-fit trousers.


Wazen’s beauty look to go with the outfits? Sideswept bangs and a top knot that went from polished to messy as the day went on, working in favor of both ensembles. As for her glam for the day, the influencer offered makeup inspiration for the summer by adding a pop of color to her eyeshadow. With her eyelids painted in a muted blue shade, the rest of Wazen’s look featured glowy skin and a pinky nude lip.
