Pictured on set, Laila Mourad is seen wearing a traditional abaya and headcover, but the accessories steal the show. A beautiful floral-esque band on her head, hoop earrings with intricate detailing and layered necklaces.

Filmed driving a coupe along with Naguib El Raihany, Mourad is in a black dress with golden accents and bedazzlement across the front and on the shoulders. The outfit is completed with simple draping gold earrings.

Sayedat Al Qitar, 1952

Another still from a movie which depicted the height of Mourad’s dominance in Egyptian cinema. Wearing a full abaya while on a donkey, a photo so simple still seems to look elegant.

Chanel Dress, 1951 

The final highlight had to be this custom Chanel dress Laila Mourad wore. This was the first ever custom dress Chanel designed for an Arab woman, and who is more fitting to flaunt it than Laila Mourad? Coupled with an intricate diamond necklace and a simple floral wrist cuff, we think this is the creme de la creme of Laila Mourad looks.
