Yasmine Sabri is no stranger to stealing the show at film festivals. Over the years, the Egyptian actor has been gracing the red carpet wearing stunning gowns from prominent regional designers such as Georges Hobeika, Yousef Akbar, and more, reflecting her support for Arab talent.

On Monday, the former Vogue Arabia cover star wore an equally striking piece in the season’s hottest color. Styled by Carole Bou Khaled, Sabri walked the red carpet in a breathtaking off-the-shoulder Jean Pierre Khoury couture gown adorned with crystals, and a long silk chiffon cape and trailed on the floor. She completed the bold look with Chopard jewelry, and opted for a classic glam, wearing her long hair down in old Hollywood waves. The Cannes Film Festival is one of the world’s oldest fashion playgrounds, where stars walk the red carpet in their very best. While most actors and models have opted for blush tones, metallics, and monochromes this year, Sabri’s latest look stands out for its traffic-stopping hue.

As a longtime supporter of Arab designers, it makes sense that Sabri picked a creation by the Lebanese creative to make a statement. This is not the first time Sabri has worn a look by the designer. Earlier this year, the actor wore a black ombré dress from the brand, followed by a dazzling off-the-shoulder blue number. Jean Pierre Khoury’s designs are also favored by Halle Bailey, Myriam Fares, Tara Emad, and more.
