Karen Wazen Spends an Evening in Doha Wearing a Regal Red Kaftan-Style Gown



If there’s one thing we can say for sure about Karen Wazen‘s sartorial aesthetic, it’s that she loves a pop of color. Over the past few months, the Lebanese influencer and entrepreneur has been spotted in a spectrum of vibrant hues, from acid blue and emerald green to canary yellow. And yesterday, it was time for Wazen to give striking scarlet a little love.

Seen enjoying an evening out in Doha, Qatar, Karen Wazen made a case for traffic-stopping reds in a crinkled silk-chiffon gown by Egyptian fashion house SemSem. The billowing ensemble created the illusion of a formal kaftan, and came with two floor-length sleeves that fluttered behind her as she walked. Take a closer look below.

Did you miss the Swarovski detailing on Karen Wazen’s red gown?

Adding just the right amount of sparkle to Karen Wazen’s look from Doha were the delicate Swarovski buttons that dotted the front of her SemSem gown. Instead of pairing her kaftan-inspired look with matching accessories, the 35-year-old opted for a champagne gold and pink handbag from her sister Andrea Wazen’s label for the night out. A classic diamond ring was among her only accessories. As for her beauty look, Wazen painted a sultry picture on Instagram with artfully disheveled ombré waves, and natural makeup that drew attention to her doe eyes.

Here’s a closer look at Karen Wazen’s SemSem gown.
