Donned by Arab celebrities and international icons alike, these veteran red carpet courtiers stunned on the festival’s opening night.

Keep scrolling for a closer look at the glamorous array of custom Arab designs showcased at the world’s most prestigious film festival.

Jane Fonda in Elie Saab

Can we just appreciate how stunning Fonda looks here for a second? Stealing the show in a black Elie Saab jumpsuit with floral appliques adorning the waist, Grace & Frankie star, Jane Fonda, paired the look with a leopard print coat, silver accessories, and a bold red lip.

Shimmering in silver and gold, Egyptian actress Youssra made quite the entrance in a custom gown designed by Lebanon’s own Tony Ward.

Raya Abirached in Georges Chakra

A vision in red, celebrity presenter Raya Abirached donned a strapless gown with a thigh-high slit by Beirut-based Lebanese courtier Georges Chakra.

Shanina Shaik in Zuhair Murad

It seems as though red is a popular choice this year, with Australian model of Saudi descent, Shanina Shaik, looking regal in a deep red strapless gown by the internationally acclaimed Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad.

Farhana Bodi in Atelier Zuhra

The Dubai Bling star is no stranger to Omani-born and Dubai-based Atelier Zuhra’s creations. Incredibly structured, the gown looks every bit the art piece that it undoubtedly is.

Opting for a pastel pink jumpsuit and kaftan from Syrian designer Rami Al Ali’s repertoire, Dubai TV host Diala Makki embraced her Arabic heritage on the red carpet.

Yara Alnamlah in Rami Kadi

Black has never looked better. Dressed in a custom black kaftan gown with feathered borders, Saudi internet personality and entrepreneur, Yara Alnamlah, proves that basic does not in any way, shape, or form, mean boring.
