Nicolas Jebran‘s show-stopping designs have long been a red carpet favorite of stars, including Yasmine Sabri and Cyrine Abdelnour, who championed the Lebanese couturier just last night. Making an appearance at the closing gala of the 2022 Red Sea International Film Festival in Jeddah, both actors chose glamorous numbers made by the Beirut-born designer.
Sabri embraced the festive season in a sheer, form-flattering burgundy gown, which was covered entirely in Jebran’s signature sequined embroidery, and elevated with long pieces of tulle extending from the sleeves down to the hem. Stylist Carole Bou Khaled paired the glittering dress with a black clutch and stilettos, while the diamond earrings and ring worn by the Cartier ambassador naturally came from the French jeweler. The evening saw the former Vogue Arabia cover star switch up her usual wavy hair for a sleek and long ponytail to complement her soft glam, courtesy of makeup artist Shariff Tanyous.
As for Abdelnour, the Lebanese actor channeled an edgier persona with an all-black ensemble styled by Cedric Haddad. The velvet gown featured a corset-like bodice with metallic detailing, which flowed into a voluminous bottom. The highlight? Black velvet gloves that pulled the entire vampy ensemble together. Abdelnour complemented it all by wearing her hair in a short style, and sporting a black graphic eyeliner with a warm nude pout.
Jebran was also the designer of choice for many other stars at the film festival, with Indian actor Priyanka Chopra opting for a sunshine yellow satin gown, and Tunisian model Rym Saidi wearing a black netted piece from the fashion house’s FW23 couture collection.
