Cannes red carpet plays host to Arab creativity 

DUBAI: Brazilian influencer Camila Coelho and British swimwear designer Kimberley Garner attended the premiere of Italian-French drama “Tre Piani (Three Floors)” at the 74th annual Cannes Film Festival on Sunday wearing glittering gowns by regional designers, while Lebanese model Nour Arida stunned at the same screening in a show-stopping necklace by French luxury jewelry house Boucheron. 

Arida, who is an ambassador for the label, showed off the detailed Cape de Lumière from Boucheron’s 26 Vendôme collection. The cape-like necklace features delicate gold webbing with citrine and diamonds and required 925 hours of handwork to create.

According to the brand, the pattern is a modern, stylized version of a peacock feather, a symbol which is dear to the maison and oft repeated in its classic designs. 

Arida complemented the necklace with a sleek black column gown by Jean Paul Gaultier and Jimmy Choo heels. 

The influencer and model later stepped out at the Kering Women in Motion Awards dinner in another head-turning necklace by Boucheron, complete with glittering diamonds and an art deco-style design.

Not to be outshone on the red carpet, Brazilian It-Girl Coelho turned to Lebanese designer Nicolas Jebran for her turn down Sunday’s red carpet. 

The influencer, who boasts nine million followers on Instagram, looked graceful in an all-white gown by Jebran with a beaded train that mimicked a swan’s plumes. 

The glistening gown featured thin straps at the shoulders, a fully beaded bodice and a figure-hugging cut that cascaded into a mermaid skirt. 

Coelho also turned heads in a rather more futuristic creation by Jebran at an earlier party hosted by Chopard. The aquamarine look featured asymmetrical rouching at the waist, a hip-high slight and an attached hood, which she wore over pulled back locks.

Finally, Lebanese designer Rami Kadi showed off his creativity with the help of Saudi influencer Hala Abdallah and British swimwear designer Garner, who both donned looks from his Spring/Summer 2021 collection.

For her part, Abdallah opted for a gown that was covered in iridescent sequins, with the design of a rose running the length of the inner column sheath. A black lace overskirt amped up the look and added extra drama that was ideal for the Cannes red carpet. 

Garner showed off a sand-colored airbrushed jacquard gown featuring blush pink and sky blue embellishments of quirky Disney fairies with a voluminous draped neckline.
