“Being part Saudi Arabian myself, [the Red Sea International Film Festival] is very special for me, and it’s a very special trip. It’s very exciting to see history being made today,” a glowing Shanina Shaik revealed on the red carpet in Jeddah last night. For her evening out in the kingdom, the 30-year-old opted for a sparkling black Mônot gown with sheer draping. The look was completed with a sleek updo.

For Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel, one of the highlights of the Red Sea International Film Festival was the premiere of the musical Cyrano, starring Peter Dinklage and Haley Bennett. The South African model and philanthropist walked the red carpet in Jeddah in a less-is-more ivory gown, which came with a dramatically long trail. Her custom-made pick was also a Mônot creation.

Russian beauty Irina Shayk seemed to go the minimalistic route for her appearance at Jeddah’s debut film festival, posing for the cameras on the red carpet in an ebony gown with a boat neck and full sleeves. The surprise elements of her look were the gown’s plunging back, and Shayk’s beauty look, which stood out for her crimson lip color.

Her pick: an intricately beaded charcoal grey halter gown, which was complemented with a collection of glimmering diamond rings. Sampaio spent her evening cheering on friend Mohammed Al Turki, the Chairman of Red Sea International Film Festival. “I’m just really proud of him!” she told Vogue Arabia on the red carpet with a grin.

From Princess Diana To Jennifer Aniston, These Are The Ultimate Celebrity Revenge Looks

Princess Diana almost never wore the dress now considered the progenitor of “revenge dressing”. Made for her by the Greek designer Christina Stambolian, it had been sitting in her wardrobe for three years, with Diana worrying that it was too daring.
Her decision to wear it to the Serpentine Gallery’s summer party, in June 1994, had been a last-minute one. She had reportedly been due to wear something by Valentino, but changed her mind: it was the night that a controversial television programme aired, detailing Prince Charles’s adulterous relationship with Camilla Parker-Bowles, now the Duchess of Cornwall. “She wanted to look a million dollars,” said her former stylist and the late Vogue editor, Anna Harvey, “and she did”.
The decision ensured Diana was front-page news. “The Thrilla He Left To Woo Camilla,” raved The Sun, above a photograph of Diana striding from her car wearing the figure-hugging style, a choker of pearls at her neck, her hair immaculate, her smile wide. The moment has now become “a mood”, as the internet would call it.
The “revenge dress” is due to feature in the fifth series of The Crown, worn by Elizabeth Debicki, who is taking over from Emma Corrin to play Diana in the next season. The actor was snapped recreating one of Diana’s most famous moments, emerging from her chauffeur-driven car wearing a black off-the-shoulder dress and strands of pearls with a central sapphire gem round her neck.

Here, a round-up of the best revenge dressing moments through the years.

Forget the theme (“Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between” – admittedly not the easiest). For Bella Hadid, the Met Gala 2017 was an opportunity to show off her exceptionally toned body in front of her ex-boyfriend The Weeknd, who was in attendance with his new girlfriend Selena Gomez, thanks to a lace beaded body stocking.

Fresh from a break-up with long-term beau Jamie Foxx, it didn’t take long for Katie Holmes to reinvent herself as a cashmere bra influencer courtesy of a barley-coloured Khaite bra and cardigan set.

Jennifer Aniston, 2005

Attending the premiere of the film Derailed, in New York, Aniston looked quite the opposite, in a figure-hugging, beaded Chanel dress that showed she would not be embroiled in gossip about the break-down of her marriage to Brad Pitt.

Having broken off her engagement to Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez hit the Golden Globes red carpet in Grecian-style Michael Kors, looking the very definition of “glowing”.

Elizabeth Hurley went all-out for an anniversary party for Valentino Garavani. The plunging neckline and sultry silhouette of her oyster-hued gown drew a clear line under her relationship with Hugh Grant, with whom she had recently split in the wake of a cheating scandal.

If you love fashion and computer games, or are a budding stylist who dreams of dressing an A-list star, then you’re in luck. Until December 9, DREST is giving its players the opportunity to cast and style supermodels in a series of photoshoot challenges.
Natalia Vodianova, Precious Lee, Irina Shayk, Imaan Hammam and Candice Huffine have joined DREST, an interactive luxury styling game, to feature as hyper-realistic avatars allowing players to dress their favorite models in a series of outfits.

The models can be cast through a Booking Fee that grants players a set number of uses, after which the talent will need to be re-booked. Once models are booked the player can style them in a number of outfits, with more than 200 leading brands to choose from including Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Prada, Off-White, Loewe, Chloé, Thom Browne, Burberry, Stella McCartney and Fenty. Playing stylist, players can also style their model’s hair with nine different styles to choose from, each designed by leading celebrity hairstylist Sam McKnight.

Taking the experience up another echelon – blending virtual with reality – once the look is complete, players can not only share their creation but can also shop the pieces, thanks to a partnership with Farfetch.
On being chosen to have her own avatar, model Imaan Hamman tells Vogue Arabia, “I remember being very excited when I got asked to be part of DREST. When I was a little girl I always had a thing for playing dress up with avatars, it’s so my era! Fashion for me has always been an outlet where I could be myself in many ways and be bold, so having my own real life avatar is a dream come true. It was such a cool experience, so different from a normal day to day shoot. It went by so fast. I had to stand in the middle of the room and I was surrounded by a 1000 mini cameras/lenses in a circle that took a photo of every single part of the body. How cool?”

The models admits playing with the latest fashion items appeals to her, saying “I would definitely have lots of fun with just exploring and experimenting. I would love to dress up in three different kinds of styles: classy, street and sexy.”
While shopping in the virtual world and online is fun, the former Vogue Arabia cover star admits, when it comes to buying clothes she still prefers IRL. “It’s so important for me to be able to try the clothes on before buying – to feel the fabrics and feel confident,” she says. “I love to shop when I am in Paris, I feel like there are always better collections there than in other cities. I love Galeries Lafayette and Le Marais area is where you can always find me – I have a huge love for vintage and I always find the best pieces there.”

Behind the collaboration between the models and DREST is a philanthropic endeavor. “We have made a pledge to match 50% of revenue earned by the supermodels in-game and donate this to their respective causes through charitable donations,” explains Lucy Yeomans, Creator, Founder & Co-CEO, DREST.  For Hamman, her cause is She’s The First, “a non-profit that fights for a world where every girl chooses her own future. We work with local organizations to make sure all girls are educated.”
