The Six: Looks from Michael Cinco’s Dubai show

DUBAI: The Filipino designer closed Dubai Design Days fashion week on Monday night with a show full of glamorous gowns.

Lady in red
Canadian Miss Universe 2018 contestant Marta Magdalena Stepien took part in the show wearing a strawberry-red dress with feathered accents on one shoulder and a daring, hip-high slit.

Pretty pastels
This gorgeous gown is ever so reminiscent of French brand Balmain’s luxury beaded designs with one refreshing difference — the pretty pastel color scheme.

Statement maker
The full skirt of this show-stopping gown is a talking point with its marbled print that almost looks like a blood moon. The over-the-top feather sleeves don’t hurt either.

Fit for a princess
Baby pink, light as air feathers swept the runway with this extravagant ballgown. The sparkling bodice features full, tight sleeves and a deep cut at the neckline for that extra quirky kick.

A dramatic choice
A ballgown that could easily be worn by the mysterious Queen Titania — Shakespeare’s fairy queen in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” — this dress is sure to turn heads with its butterflies and dark glamor.

Fringe Benefit
The galactic color scheme and glittering fringe on this minidress work together to make it a stunning choice for an epic evening out.

Miss Egypt walked the stage at the 2018 Miss Universe national costume presentation in Thailand’s Chonburi province wearing a stunning gold-and-turquoise ensemble.

Maya Reaidy
Miss Lebanon 2018 chose to represent her homeland by paying tribute to the cedar tree — traditionally associated with the Levantine country.

Lara Debbane
Miss Egypt took part in the national costume show wearing an elaborate turquoise-and-silver headpiece at the 63rd Miss Universe pageant in Miami in 2015.

Saly Greige
In 2015, Miss Lebanon wowed crowds in Miami wearing a hot pink kaftan with embroidery on the neckline.

Donia Hamed
Miss Egypt 2010 posed with a scepter in hand at that year’s Miss Universe competition in Las Vegas.

Nadine Njeim
Miss Lebanon 2005 also paid tribute to the cedar tree at that year’s competition in Bangkok. She took to the stage in a floaty gold bodysuit with sequin embellishments and a tree-shaped headpiece.
