The 72nd edition of the Cannes Festival took off in full swing on May 14, bringing together the finest talent from across the globe at Nice, France. Making an appearance is our regional style star, Dubai-based influencer Ola Farahat. At the grand occasion, all eyes were on Farahat as she took to the red carpet championing the Middle East in a stunning gown by Syrian-born couturier, Rami Al Ali.
“In the Middle East we are so lucky to have such rich talent to come out of the region, so I love supporting Arab designers when I can. I feel so honored to be working with Rami again and to be wearing one of his incredible pieces at the Cannes Film Festival,” shared Farahat with Vogue.me. Adding: “The dress is a piece of art and its originality is truly inspiring.”
Featuring a strapless bodice textured with lace giving way to a voluminous tulle skirt, the dreamy gown donned by the Palestinian-born star seems worthy of a fairytale of its own. She completed her look with a dazzling pair of De Grisogono earrings. Speaking of the dress which Farahat selected with Al Ali, the designer said, “It’s truly a pleasure to be working with Ola again, who perfectly embodies the Rami Al Ali brand aesthetic. For Cannes Film Festival we chose a gown that is delicate in its construction with feminine laser-cut organza and intricate beadwork to beautifully complement her features.”
