On the evening of December 1, 2022, all roads led to Jeddah, where the second edition of the Red Sea International Film Festival took over the Ritz Carlton Hotel. Just like the debut celebration in 2021, this year’s opening night was a star-studded affair, with talents from not just the kingdom, but the whole world coming together to spotlight some of the best creatives across the globe.

White seemed to be the winning choice for the evening, with Tara Emad walking onto the red carpet dressed in a sparkling Chanel ensemble, and Fatima Al Banawi opting for an equally glamorous look: an embellished ivory Rami Kadi pantsuit. Salma Abu Deif went the elegant route in a flowy white Valentino gown, and Passant Shawky tooo favored relaxed silhouettes in a snowy maxi.

For those who opted for color, however, the evening’s motto was to go big, bold and brave. Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosia was unmissable in her royal blue draped Yousef Akbar gown, while Lucy Hale made a statement in a strapless green gown. Mahira Abdelaziz’s pick for the special evening was a bold red Maison Yeya number with a sequined skirt.

On a more muted note, Rym Saidi was a vision in black this year, wearing a beaded Nicolas Jebran gown, complemented with a sleek updo. Also opting for a minimal aesthetic was Thai actor Bella Ranee Campen, who gave classic pantsuits a feminine spin.

And then there were the statement makers. Hollywood star and Vogue Arabia’s September 2022 cover star Sharon Stone made sure all eyes were on her in a voluminous gown covered in ruffles by Monsoori, and iconic actor Yousra drenched herself in gold.

Below, take a closer look at what your favorite stars wore to the second edition of the Red Sea International Film Festival.
