Nadine Nassib Njeim Channelled the 50s in Custom Zuhair Murad at Cannes 2023


After a captivating first appearance in Georges Chakra at the 76th Cannes Film Festival, Nadine Nassib Njeim has once again proven her penchant for sartorial excellence. The former Vogue Arabia cover star arrived at the premiere of La Passion De Dodin Bouffant in a stunning bespoke Zuhair Murad creation.

The corseted gown featured black satin duchesse cinched at the waist for a figure-hugging silhouette that the Lebanese actor carried with ease. An extravagant black and white cape flaring towards the sides added just the right hint of drama while beaded gloves extending above her elbows took us back to the glittering days of old Hollywood. Celebrity stylist Yasmine Eissa accessorized the alluring ensemble with Chopard jewelry: a necklace set with eye-catching emeralds and diamonds.


Taking to Instagram, Nassib Njeim revealed the inspiration behind her memorable look, “I have always been fascinated by the glamour of the 50s era. The era of Brigitte Bardot and Sofia Loren. You know, I love how back then, women embraced their curves, and fashion was bold, yet feminine. And here we are today, Zuhair and I decided to create a custom-made dress inspired by this golden Era and this magical city, Cannes. Thank you to every person who made this vision come to life.”
