Nora Attal rocks the runway in Rome

DUBAI: Fresh off the Chanel campaign shot by Karl Lagerfeld, creative director of the French luxury fashion house, British-Moroccan model Nora Attal strutted her stuff on a runway in Rome for Moschino on Tuesday.

The model, 19, turned heads in a black gown and accessorized her look with chunky gold jewelry and an elaborate, high-piled wig.

She posted a short video of her walk on the runway on Instagram, thanking Moschino creative director Jeremy Schott and French stylist Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele for the look. She also posted short clips of other models backstage in her Instagram Stories.

The model of the moment started 2019 with a bang as she landed a fashion campaign with Chanel, becoming the face of the French brand’s Spring/Summer 2019 campaign. She shared pictures of herself and other models posing in Chanel’s latest collection earlier this week.

Styled by Carine Roitfeld, Attal wore a black dress alongside fellow models Sarah Dahl, Hyunji Shin, Rebecca Longendyke, Adesuwa Aighewi, Vittoria Ceretti, and Kristina Grikaite.

It is certainly not the first collaboration of the up-and-coming model with Chanel. She walked the runway of its garden-themed Pre-Fall 2019 show and the beach-themed Spring/Summer 2019 show at Paris Fashion Week.

Attal also recently shared images from her photoshoot for British Vogue. She has worked with the biggest names in the fashion industry, including Prada, Elie Saab, McCartney, Nina Ricci, H&M, Valentino, Dior and Alexander McQueen.

Harper’s Bazaar recently named Attal as one of their “ones-to-watch for” in 2019.

The teenage model, who was first discovered in 2014, was chosen as Vogue Arabia’s December 2017 cover star, where she paid homage to her Arabian roots, wearing a traditional ceremonial headpiece. The Arab model was featured on her first British Vogue cover, alongside Edie Campbell, Kate Moss, Stella Tennant and Jean Campbell, for the September 2017 issue.

Attal was raised in London but is connected to her parents’ Moroccan roots through regular visits to the country.

Tuesday’s runway show, held at the iconic Roman Cinecitta movie studios, celebrated film director Federico Fellini with references to his movies.

Male and female models walked around the ruins of the Baths of Caracalla, which were reproduced in the venue, as were replicas of torches and columns, antique Roman elements and characters from “Casanova,” “La Dolce Vita,” “Roma” and other movies.

The show unveiled Moschino men’s Fall 2019 and women’s Pre-Fall 2019 collections, comprising bomber jackets embroidered with Latin text, herringbone tweed coats, tuxedos with multi-color chains, silk skirts worn with gladiator corsets and feminine dresses embellished with feathers.

Duchess of Cambridge stuns in Elie Saab number for first day of Royal Ascot

  • It is the first time the Duchess has worn Saab’s label
  • It appeared blue was the color of the day as there was royal coordination in outfits

LONDON: The Duchess of Cambridge donned a stunning light blue dress designed by renowned Lebanese couturier Elie Saab for the first day of the Royal Ascot meeting on Tuesday.
Catherine sat with Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, as they swapped from cars at Windsor Great Park to horse-drawn carriages as the UK’s royal family made their journey from Windsor Castle to Ascot Racecourse for the famous week-long flat racing event.
It is the first time the Duchess has worn Saab’s label and she matched the ornate, delicate dress with a striking Philip Treacy hat.

It appeared blue was the color of the day as there was royal coordination in outfits with Queen Elizabeth, Zara (daughter of Princess Anne) and princesses Eugenie and Beatrice all stepping out in ensembles of different shades of blue.
Elie Saab has made himself a must-have designer for celebrities in recent years. Halle Berry, Priyanka Chopra and Katy Perry all wore his work in February at various events.
Superstars like Angelina Jolie, Lily Collins and Freida Pinto — as well as supermodel Winnie Harlow — have also shown off his work in the past, while Game of Thrones star Rose Leslie chose the Lebanese designer for her wedding dress in June 2018.
