Mona Zaki never disappoints when it comes to her red carpet ensembles. Take a quick look through the star’s Style Evolution, and you’ll agree that whether Zaki poses for the camera in bold golds, dreamy pinks, or classic blacks, she always knows how to ensure all eyes are on her. And this weekend’s Joy Awards were no exception.
For the annual celebration, which took place in Riyadh, Mona Zaki walked in wearing a statement-making number by none other than Tunisian favorite Alaïa. This time around, it was a bold tangerine gown that won the actor’s vote. take a closer look at it below.
Mona Zaki’s gown was also recently worn by Huda Kattan
Featuring full sleeves and a slouchy turtleneck, Mona Zaki’s Alaïa gown was full of interesting details. Comprising a nude-tone bodycon and semi-sheer orange layer, the gown created a risqué effect, and also came with layers of feathers towards the bottom that instantly added volume to the look. With so many strong elements in one ensemble, the star opted for classic accessories in shades of gold so as not to take away from her clothing. Zaki’s picked included the Bulgari Serpenti watch, matching earrings, and a gold clutch. Sweeping her deep brown locks into a sleek updo, Mona Zaki completed her look with sultry smoky eyes, glossy nude lips, and a neutral manicure.
As it turns out, however, Mona Zaki isn’t the only Arab power player to have given this vibrant Alaïa gown her seal of approval. Back in October 2022, the very same gown was also seen on beauty entrepreneur Huda Kattan, who chose the look for the Fashion Trust Arabia Awards in Doha, where she was given the Entrepreneur of the Year award.
While gold details won Mona Zaki’s vote at the Joy Awards, Kattan styled the same dress differently on her night out, opting for a crystal studded circular clutch, along with diamond earrings and rings. Though both women went with updos with the outfit, Kattan’s veered closer towards a wet look for some added drama. Take a closer look below.
