Tara Emad Sparkled in a White Crochet Gown at Cannes 2023

This week, Tara Emad made a major announcement: the Egyptian beauty has officially become Chanel’s first Middle Eastern brand ambassador for fragrances and beauty. So naturally, for her Cannes outings this year, the star has opted for nothing but Chanel ensembles, each unique in its own way.



After stepping out a few days ago in a black co-ordinated jacket + shorts look from the fashion house, Emad made an appearance last night for a special dinner in yet another noteworthy look: a white body-skimming gown that beautifully complemented her slender frame. But what really set her look apart from the rest were the final details of her ensemble. Take a closer look below.



Tara Emad’s white gown came with hundreds of sewn-in sequins

Unlike other white gowns, Tara Emad’s Chanel dress stood out for its interesting texture. The ankle-grazing number seemed to be a crochet creation, which was further enhanced with hundreds of sparkling sequins. The final effect was that of an almost bohemian, summer-ready look that would perfectly for a seaside soirée.



For her night out, Emad styled her white gown with Cartier jewelry, including a diamond necklace dotted with emeralds, and a matching bracelet. A shimmering silver clutch and strappy white heels completed her look. As for her beauty picks for the evening, the Egyptian beauty left her long, glossy locks open in romantic waves, and opted for an intense smoky eye with rose pink lips.

If white has always been your favorite hue, take cues from Tara Emad on how to give the color a fresh new spin. It may be time to invest in a cool crochet number just like hers.
