As a model who frequently champions her Palestinian heritage, it’s natural that Bella Hadid does so sartorially too. The part-Arab daughter of real estate developer Mohamed Hadid, known for actively advocating her support for Palestine, was recently spotted wearing its name around her neck. While out in West Hollywood with her brother Anwar Hadid, and friends including Euphoria star Alexa Demie, the model accessorized her look with gold necklaces that read ‘Palestine’, and her full name, ‘Isabella’.

These are not just necklaces bought off-the-shelf, but custom pieces created on Hadid’s request by Chvker Jewelry’s designer Nazlia Yunus. She revealed that Hadid commissioned her to design around eight bespoke nameplate necklaces in gold, reading:  ‘Pizza Queen’, ‘Libra Angel’, ‘Hellz Bellz’, ‘Baby Bellz’, ‘Bella Hadid’, and her middle name, ‘Khair’. Chvker Jewelry is known for its trendy Y2K pieces, in line with the 25-year-old model’s current style. In fact, Hadid is not the only popular name the brand has found a fan in. Yunus’ designs have also been spotted on Demie, beauty mogul Kylie Jenner, Stranger Things actor Millie Bobby Brown, and rapper Becky G.

Hadid complemented her necklaces with a pair of classic oversized golden hoops. Her outfit of choice for attending artist Alana O’Herlihy’s birthday at The Nice Guy restaurant consisted of a brown backless halter dress with a plunging neckline and a high-low neckline, and white knee-high leather boots. She completed her look with a leopard print purse slung over her shoulder, and wore her hair in a messy bun with a side fringe, which has fast become her signature hairstyle.

Jennifer Lopez Is Bringing Back The Boho Denim Maxi Skirt

“Boho chic” is a divisive phrase. To some, it conjures up low-slung harem pants worn with coin belts and tie-dye peasant blouses – the kind that give even the most forgiving fashion fans the ick. For others, it spells out the style of Sienna Miller, the Olsen twins, and Kate Moss. But now, one of the trend’s key pieces – the maxi skirt – is making a comeback on an unlikely source: Jennifer Lopez.
Spotted on the streets of Los Angeles this weekend, the 52-year-old pop superstar wore a boho-inspired Dior patchwork denim full-length skirt, a cream knitted roll-neck jumper, and a brown pair of distressed cowboy boots by Ralph Lauren. The look was topped off with a set of gold hoop earrings by Jennifer Fisher, brown Max Mara Geometric sunglasses, and a leather fringe Hobo bag from Chanel’s pre-fall 2014 Metiers D’art Paris-Dallas collection.
Later on, JLo waved the flag for the throwback style in yet another skirt, but this time, a more demure button-up style. The singer paired the piece with a black polo-neck, a forest green Gucci logo belt, and Alaïa velvet platform Hiker boots. Does this confirm that boho maxi skirts are back? Only time will tell, but Lopez certainly looks striking.

Mona Zaki Wore a Romantic Black Velvet Gown by an Arab Designer for the Premiere of Netflix’s Perfect Strangers

Last night saw the premiere of Perfect Strangers, Netflix’s first-ever Arabic original film starring Egyptian actor Mona Zaki, and six noteworthy stars from the region. For the glamorous evening celebration at the Bulgari Yacht Club in Dubai, Zaki walked the red carpet looking every bit the movie star in a dress championing local talent.

Styled by Cedric Haddad, the Egyptian actor chose a dress from Lebanese designer Sandy Nour’s eponymous label. The black velvet number featured a figure-hugging silhouette, an off-shoulder neckline, full-length sleeves, and a thigh-high slit. More daring than most of Zaki’s usual looks, the sultry gown was paired with dazzling Aquazzura heels, and a clutch from another much-loved Lebanese label, Sarah’s Bag.

Zaki’s glam look for the night was a lesson in how one can never go wrong with classics. Adding to the bold sophistication of the look, the actor’s hair channeled Old Hollywood romance, styled in a slick side part with soft waves by Rafi Fazaa. She also sported a glossy red lip and a cat-eye liner, complemented by glowy skin and peach-toned blushed cheeks.

The outdoor premiere was also attended by Zaki’s co-stars: Lebanese actor-director Nadine Labaki, Jordanian-Egyptian actor Eyad Nassar, and Lebanese actors Diamand Abou Abboud, Georges Khabbaz, Adel Karam, and Fouad Yammine. Ahead of the screening, the stars caught up with Vogue Arabia to divulge details about the making of the film and the challenges they faced.

Perfect Strangers, titled As-hab wala A’az in Arabic, is the regional adaptation of the hit Italian film of the same name, and is all set to release on Netflix on January 20, 2022. The thrilling drama marks the directorial debut of filmmaker Wissam Smayra.

Scroll to check out her latest winter-ready look.

Dorra Zarrouk makes a case for faux fur detailing

Carrie Bradshaw’s New It-Bag Has Serious Fashion History

Carrie Bradshaw’s New It-Bag Has Serious Fashion History

You know a bag has reached icon status when it hits the big screen. Just like the Fendi Baguette was immortalized in Sex and the City, this time around it’s the turn of Balenciaga’s Hourglass in And Just Like That… Carrie Bradshaw’s new It-bag has been a highlight in the show we all love to hate; the sculptural design a signal that the columnist known for her eclectic taste still keeps a finger on the fashion pulse – even if just one.
Carrie did not just buy any Hourglass bag. The Manolo addict selected one from Gucci’s “hacking” of Balenciaga, whereby Alessandro Michele borrowed tropes from his Kering stablemate Demna’s work, including Balenciaga’s striking hourglass tailoring and its matching handbag.
The Hourglass’s origins lie in house founder Cristóbal Balenciaga’s Basque waistcoats from the ’50s. The bold curvature of the sharply elegant Hourglass mirrors the lines of the garments firmly ingrained in the house’s DNA and which Demna continues to reimagine and pay forward in fresh ways.
Fashionistas other than Bradshaw are fans of the architectural bag, launched for fall 2019 and designed to sit on the hip, suspended from a removable cross-body strap, or carried by the small top handle. The three sizes and multitude of colorways and finishings ensure there’s a different Hourglass for brand fans, including Hailey Bieber, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Adut Akech, to carry without ever doubling up (these days, it’s all about adaptability in the leather goods market—the cash cow for fashion labels).

But no one loves the eye-catching arm candy as much as Balenciaga disciple Kim Kardashian, whose commitment to Demna’s vision frequently involves her wiggling into full-look stretch-satin to realize her street-style art. Kim’s glitter-encrusted Hourglass turned out to be the perfect accessory for her string of SNL looks, ranging from crushed velvet pink tailoring to plush leather trench coats thrown over her shiny, Spandexy catsuits.
Of course Balenciaga is well-versed in what it takes to make an It-bag. Its City and Motorcycle styles which were nestled in the arms of Kate Moss and Sienna Miller in the Noughties are enjoying something of a renaissance in line with the decade’s resurgence. Designed by then-creative director Nicolas Ghesquière at the turn of the century, the slouchy totes are like the rock‘n’roll sister of the Hourglass; all scuffed leather worn like a badge of honor, in contrast to its ultra-slick modern counterpart.
The Hacker Project small Hourglass bag
That’s not to say the Hourglass is lacking character. You only need to look at the nine lives that its bold B logo has already had on Kim and co to see that it brings a certain angular, directional quality to its wearer’s wardrobe. And just like that… an It-bag is born.

Egyptian actor Youssra caused quite the stir on social media yesterday, announcing the arrival of a brand new show. Titled Kalam Fi Lhob (translating to ‘talk about love’), the new series will debut on January 31 on MBC 1, was written by Hala Khalil, and produced by El Adl Group.
To share the big news about the fresh series—which also stars Ghada Adel, Mai Kassab, Nour Mahmoud and Nabil Nour El Deen—Youssra posted a mysterious teaser on her Instagram page, in which she shared some hints about Kalam Fi Lhob while she played the piano. The clip saw the iconic star dressed in a striking ensemble: a scarlet red carpet-ready gown by Iraqi haute couture designer Zeena Zaki. Take a closer look below.

Youssra styled her red gown with diamond jewelry
To keep with the romantic theme of her upcoming show, Youssra opted for a blood red Zeena Zaki gown that came with elegant detailing. Along with a trail, the gown also featured an off-shoulder neckline that drew attention to her décolletage, and cinched in at the waist for added structure. The most dramatic element from Youssra’s look, however, were her gloves. The actor paired her scarlet maxi with matching gloves that seemed to extend straight out from her shoulders. To top it up, Youssra complemented her cherry red gown with sparkling diamond jewelry from The House of Yessayan. Her picks: waterfall earrings, a matching choker necklace, and for the final touch, a diamond bracelet and statement ring.

No red carpet-worthy look is complete without the right makeup, and to elevate her look, Youssra went the classic route with her beauty look. The star smiled for the camera sporting elegant blonde curls, a bold red lip color, and winged liner complemented by lush lashes. The overall look was one that wouldn’t look out of place at a star-studded movie premiere.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again—nothing beats the timeless charm of a little black dress. And it looks like Hend Sabry agrees. Yesterday, the Tunisian star took to Instagram to share a noteworthy outfit: a not-so-basic LBD that proves that it’s always a good idea to reinvent one’s classics. Sabry was seen in an ebony Gucci dress with sheer detailing along the neckline and sleeves, and the most interesting accents. Scroll to check out her full ensemble.

Hend Sabry complemented her Gucci dress with a classic beauty look
Featuring a sharp white collar and matching white cuffs, Hend Sabry’s Gucci dress gave the basic LBD a preppy spin. The outfit also featured chunky gold buttons on the cuffs that stood out against the classic palette of  the dress. For her picture-perfect shots, the actor decided to pair her ensemble with an equally fail-safe beauty look. Sabry opted for matte crimson lips and sharp black winged liner, completing the combination with contoured cheekbones and a super sleek low ponytail with a side parting. As for accessories, the actor opted for another timeless piece—pearl stud earrings—and a selection of delicate rings. Strappy black heels from Aquazzura added the perfect finishing touch.
If you’re a fan of neutral hues, classic cuts and investment-worthy outfits, a semi-sheer black dress like Hend Sabry’s Gucci pick is one you need to bookmark. While you can style it just the way she did for a formal event, you can also spruce things up with a pair of statement heels in a bold shade every now and then.

Photo: Instagram.com/queenraniaHM Queen Rania‘s royal wardrobe is often talked about and loved for its modest and style-forward pieces. However, a more significant facet of her looks is how she often makes a nod to Jordan with her sartorial picks, whether it’s by wearing a local designer or traditional numbers when meeting the people of the country as their queen. The royal recently stepped out to meet the Jordanian youth by paying a visit to the city of Al Salt on January 10. Known for always being dressed in stylish and occasion-appropriate ensembles, this time, Queen Rania showed her appreciation for the youth’s dedication to Jordanian heritage by reciprocating it with her own love for the country’s traditional attire.

The royal opted for a minimalistic look paired with the traditional Jordanian keffiyeh scarf. Her look consisted of a plain off-white T-shirt and dark blue skinny jeans under an oversized white collared jacket. She topped it off with a red and white keffiyeh scarf loosely yet symbolically worn over her shoulders. As for her footwear, Queen Rania ditched heels and sported comfortable black sneakers and wore her hair down in soft waves.

Photos of her trip posted to social media show the royal interacting with members of the Al-Khader Center, Handrah Program, Balqawi Wedding Experience, and, Darbk Salek. Queen Rania took to her own Instagram to share: “So proud of Jordanian youth for their drive, dedication to their communities, and love of Jordanian heritage.”

The Celebrity Guide to Nailing Everyone’s Favorite Jewelry Trend—The Neck Mess

The Celebrity Guide to Nailing Everyone’s Favorite Jewelry Trend—The Neck Mess

The right accessories can make or break an outfit, whether you’re trying to elevate a basic outfit, or adding extra frills to a statement piece to pull your look together.
Today’s accessorizing focus is necklaces, or in other words, a “neck mess”. Necklaces have been around for plenty of years and never fail to stay on trend. Of course, everyone has their own taste when it comes to jewelry—while some prefer dainty, elegant pieces, others have a soft spot for chunky chains. However, what these two aesthetics have in common is their ability to layer beautifully. Over the years, we’ve seen several A-listers, It girls and models hopping onto the layered necklace bandwagon. These days, wearing just one solitary necklace is no longer enough. The trend is all about piecing your favorite chains together, and carrying them all off at once. There’s no need to leave any behind! The beauty of a neck mess is that its a form of daily expression. It tells your story. One great example of a “simple” neck mess would be the one spotted on Sarah Jessica Parker. The And Just Like That… star was recently caught on the sets of her new show wearing Marlo Laz’s 14k gold Southwest inspired beaded necklace, with an 18 inch textured chain featuring a medium pendant, and lastly, a 20 inch beaded chain necklace centered with a slightly smaller pendant. Her layering clearly translates the persona of Carrie Bradshaw, New York’s favorite fashion lover.

And it’s not just SJP who loves the easy-yet-quirky look. Other fans of the neck mess include Hailey Bieber and Rihanna.

The question remains, how does one create the perfect neck mess?
While this look may seem artfully created, it’s actually quite simple and easy. Pick one necklace that you want to wear, and build your mess around it.

Tip 1: Play with different lengths
Don’t forget to take into consideration the different lengths of chains when planning your neck mess. A recommended combination is to play with even numbers. If your starting chain is 14 inches, your layers should go from 16 inches to 18 inches, and lastly, 20 inches, for a good balance.

Tip 2: Don’t be shy of textures
For a little added drama, don’t be afraid to play around with textures. Go crazy with beads, ropes, cable, or mesh! The sky is the limit!
Photo: Instagram.com/danahourani
Tip 3: Just have fun!
The easiest way to ruin a look is to overthink it. Yes, certain lengths look good together, but that doesn’t mean you can’t experiment with your own combinations and permutations. All it really takes to carry off a cool trend is confidence.

2022 is bringing with it a host of exciting new films, and one of the first to hit theaters this year is horror movie Scream. While the film will release globally on January 14, it will reportedly drop in the UAE on the 20th of this month. In preparation for the big day, the cast of the movie came together this week in Beverly Hills, California, and one of the most exciting red carpet looks from the event belonged to French-Polish-Tunisian actor Sonia Ben Ammar.
Joining fellow cast members Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Neve Campbell and Dylan Minnette, 22-year-old Sonia Ben Ammar stood out at the Scream photocall in a sparkling multicolored mini dress that would make the perfect pick for a night out on the town. The body-hugging Maison Valentino number brought together shades of emerald green, scarlet, gold and sky blue to create a cheery tapestry. While the dress stopped at the thighs, it also came with full sleeves for added drama. Check out the party-ready ensemble below.

Sonia Ben Ammar paired her Valentino dress with bold red lips
A bold dress deserves an equally striking beauty look, and Sonia Ben Ammar more than delivered on the makeup front for her latest public appearance. The budding star paired her multi-hued Valentino number with traffic-stopping red lips, leaving the rest of her makeup neutral to create the perfect balance. As for her hair, she opted for voluminous, movie star waves.

To complete her red carpet look, Ben Ammar opted for fail-safe gold hoop earrings and strappy gold heels. You may have noticed that this style of footwear seems to be a celebrity favorite right now—just days ago, Nancy Ajram was seen giving the accessory a thumbs up as well.
If you’re planning on stepping out this winter, why not give neutral hues a skip and go all-out with a rainbow-colored sequined dress? If Sonia Ben Ammar’s latest outfit has taught us anything, it’s that sometimes, more really can be more!
