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.

Lady Gaga has been wowing the world with her bold performances and head-to-toe fantastical looks from the moment she burst on to the music scene in 2008, and jewelry has always firmly been a part of her self-mythologizing role-play – whether she is spinning a tale of outrageous avant-garde or full-blown Hollywood glamour. From her early homemade looks and dramatic costume jewelry to her adoption of a more refined aesthetic, Vogue takes a look back at her most incredible jewelry moments and proves yet again why the performer is a living legend.

August 2009. Arriving at Tokyo airport in 2009, Lady Gaga channeled a Desperately Seeking Susan-era Madonna with armfuls of punky studded leather bracelets. Photo: Getty
2010. Lady Gaga made sartorial history at the MTV Video Music Awards by appearing in this now iconic dress, designed by Franc Fernandez – but how do you accessorise a gown made from fresh meat? With a neck and arms full of crystals, of course. Photo: Getty
September 2012. For the launch of Fame, her first perfume in 2012, Lady G fully committed as always to the task in hand. From her adorned beehive to her earrings, her jewellery channeled the black and gold design of the fragrance bottle. Photo: Getty
October 2012. For the London launch of the fragrance, she preempted the body jewellery craze that was to come with bejewelled fingers and matching talons dripping in gold. Photo: Getty
February 2015. A more glamorous Gaga emerges as the years go by. For the Grammys in 2015, she went for the green goddess contrast of silver couture and giant emeralds, the latter provided by Lorraine Schwartz. Photo: Getty

2016. Only white diamonds would do for her (almost) demure look with a Marilyn Monroe-inspired blonde coiffure and make-up at the Golden Globes, where Gaga took home the prize for Best Performance in a Miniseries or Television Film for American Horror Story: Hotel. Photo: Getty
September 2018. The monochrome look was reversed for the Toronto Film Festival screening of A Star is Born that October. Giant white diamond earrings by Chopard stand out majestically against an all-black Armani Privé look. Called the Gardens of Kalahari earrings, they centre on a 25-carat pear-shaped diamond on one side and a 26-carat heart-shaped diamond on the other. The earrings were also worn by Charlize Theron at the 2017 Oscars. Photo: Getty
September 2018. Her engagement ring from ex-fiancé Christian Carino was in the same traditional cluster setting style as Lady Diana Spencer’s engagement ring, but in true Lady Gaga fashion, it was supersized and in a cartoonish pink. Opinion was divided over whether it was a pink sapphire or diamond. Photo: Getty
January 2019. At the Screen Actors Guild Awards, Gaga channeled sophisticated glamour with a diamond, platinum and gold choker with heart and star motifs and butterfly wing gold and diamond earrings from the 2019 Tiffany Blue Book collection alongside several Tiffany T bracelets. Photo: Getty
February 2019. For the Oscars, Lady Gaga wore the 128.54-carat Tiffany Diamond, one of the largest yellow diamonds in the world. Rarely seen out in public since Charles Lewis Tiffany acquired it in 1878, it had last been worn by Audrey Hepburn in a Breakfast at Tiffany’s promotional shoot. It has since had another outing in this year’s About Love campaign starring Beyoncé and Jay-Z. Photo: Getty
January 2021. For her performance of the American national anthem at President Joe Biden’s inauguration, Lady Gaga wore a brooch specially designed for the occasion by Schiaparelli’s Daniel Roseberry. The giant gilded dove of peace spoke volumes about the performer’s feelings on the occasion, and demonstrated the power of a jewel to convey a message. “Jewellery is there to heighten the fantasy of haute couture,” Roseberry told me at the time. “It reminds me a lot of decorating a room. It’s the chandelier that brings the room alive.” Photo: Getty

Bvlgari has launched its new 2021 Fiorever jewelry collection inspired by the Italian luxury jeweler’s favorite muse and birthplace, Rome. The range captures the magic and romance of the Eternal City in sparkling creations.
The flower has been revered by Romans as an emblem of joy, spontaneity, and passion for generations on end, blooming across the city’s cultural landmarks. With the name combining the words “forever” and “fiore,” meaning flower in Italian, the collection celebrates the timelessness of this natural symbol, taking shape from the striking volumes, bold lines, and spectacular diamonds characteristic of Bvlgari, and converging into a distinctive four-petalled corolla.

Defined by the convenience and multi-functionality of convertible jewelry, the parure is sophisticated yet easy to wear. The pavé-set necklace, featuring more than six carats of diamonds, is finished with a tiny flower-shaped closure, while its pendant holding a brilliant-cut diamond can be styled into a brooch. The white gold earrings with single-row diamond cascades, falling from the iconic flower motif, can turn into versatile four-petal stud earrings by simply detaching the pendant elements.

Also in the collection is a dazzling white gold and diamond bracelet, designed to offer comfort with its new, practical closure that disappears within the flower embellishing the piece. Single flower pendants in rose or white gold display a light openwork design while the ring features diamonds gathered into a breathtaking bloom and cut to fit the tilting petals. The unprecedented enveloping design includes a magnificent flower at one end, and a petal finishes the other side of the spiral ring as if blown away by the wind.

There are also three new pendants which infuse the flower with colors from rare gemstones. The diamond petals contain a vibrant sapphire or emerald core in the white gold version and a central ruby in the rose gold version.

How Tiffany’s Yellow Diamond Became The Real Star in Hollywood’s Death On The Nile

How Tiffany’s Yellow Diamond Became The Real Star in Hollywood’s Death On The Nile

Resembling a transparent nugget, the virtuoso fancy yellow 128ct Tiffany Diamond is the largest yellow diamond in the world. It was last worn by Lady Gaga on the Oscars red carpet in 2019, and prior to her, Audrey Hepburn when publicizing Breakfast at Tiffany’s in 1961; now its exact replica is making its silver screen debut in cinemas worldwide this December.

Death on the Nile, based on Agatha Christie’s 1937 mystery novel that recounts a murder and misadventures aboard a glamorous river steamer, sees it woven into the screenplay.
The film stars Gal Gadot, Armie Hammer, Annette Bening, Jennifer Saunders and  Dawn French and is directed by Kenneth Branagh, a five-time Academy Award nominee who also plays the lead as detective Hercule Poirot. Reed Krakoff, Tiffany & Co. chief artistic officer, considers the central role “deserving of our priceless diamond,” which has rarely made an appearance outside its vault since it was process.” Delgado waxes poetic on how the jewelry brings an added dimension to a character.

Proposed sketches for the Tiffany diamond’s setting

“The Tiffany Diamond’s color and beauty are quite extraordinary; it’s a hypnotic piece,” he says, describing how the jewelry offers a new layer of beauty and quality to the costumes. To wit, if Benning’s character is glamorous and eclectic, avant garde jewels and particularly bracelets, pulled from the Tiffany Jean Schlumberger collection, help to balance the aesthetic.
The jewelry will not only highlight the costumes but also glisten against an exceptional Egyptian landscape. Death on the Nile is filmed against the grandiose Giza pyramids, the sparkling Nile River, and expansive desert. And while the diamond is a replica, for both protection and comfort’s sake, its fiery glow and ambitious girth will garner as many gasps from the audience as the numerous turns of Christie’s mystery.
