Tara Emad is bringing her unique brand of cool girl style to Madrid and championing Arab designers at the same time. The Egyptian actor is currently in the Spanish city for the unveiling of Cartier’s new high jewelry collection, and making the most of the sun-drenched weather in uplifting outfits.
For her first stop, the Suits Arabia star stepped out in a yellow mini skirt, paired with a knee-length coat style top by Lebanese designer Georges Hobeika. The statement piece came with a lapel collar and tufts of feathers at the elbows, which struck the right balance between professional and playful. A pair of nude stilettos and a chrome clutch completed her look.

After momentarily slipping into a romantic strappy red dress during the day, Emad later made a showstopping appearance in a white gown by Elie Saab. Emad sat front row for the jewelry presentation wearing a flowy one-shoulder dress with bow detailing at the sleeve, and a sultry cut-out at the waist above a thigh-high slit. Stylists Maissa and Sahar Azab accessorized her look with a metallic choker and earrings with red stones, and a silver box clutch and white heels from Jimmy Choo.

While Emad wore her hair down in a pin-straight style for her first appointment in Madrid, she later wore it in a sleek bun to complement the Elie Saab number, with blushed cheeks and a matte red pout for her makeup look.

Planning a Weekend Getaway This Summer? Don’t Go Without a Breezy Black Dress Like Tara Emad’s

“When in doubt, wear black.” It’s a piece of advice that’s been treasured for generations. After all, black is a universally flattering hue, and no one is really immune to its muted, yet somehow mysterious appeal—not even celebrities. Just ask Tara Emad, who can most often be seen in shades of ebony, with some of her most recent picks including a Chanel halter neck blouse, a feather-detailed jumpsuit, and a slinky draped Nicolas Jebran gown with blazer-like accents.
Now, Emad has also taken to Instagram to show us how to make black work for the summer. In a recent post, the star was spotted enjoying a balmy night out in a strappy black maxi dress. Crafted using lightweight fabric, the midnight number popped in the frame thanks to its floral print, rendered in a muted tone of gold. Take a closer look at it below.

Tara Emad paired her black floral dress with comfortable flats
For her casual evening outing, Tara Emad gave classic black dresses a relaxed spin by opting for a breezy number featuring romantic god detailing. Instead of amping up the look with heels, the actor chose chunky black flats, which make an appropriate choice if one plans to be on their feet for long. To complete her summery ensemble, Emad accessorized with delicate gold earrings, a statement necklace, and as a surprise element, a gold arm band. Untouched skin and wild, mermaid-like locks added the final touches.
If you’re planning a weekend getaway with your close friends, make sure to pack an easy, yet impactful black dress like Tara Emad’s for your trip. An outfit like hers is bound to come in handy everywhere, from lazy brunches to late night dinners.

Kaftans may be the forever fail-safe outfit for Ramadan events, but those who want a look that is equal parts unique, traditional, and contemporary must take a page out of Tara Emad‘s book. The Egyptian actor was recently in Dubai to attend a suhoor hosted by Cartier, and for the occasion, chose an inspiring outfit from Taller Marmo.

The Suits star wore a white V-neck kaftan top lined with long fringes at both, the sleeves and the hem, which also came with the matching loose fit trousers. Emad completed her monochrome outfit with metallic silver accessories from Jimmy Choo: a small clutch, and strappy square-toed heels which perfectly balanced out the oversized look. Her enviable long hair was not worn down in her signature natural waves this time, but instead, pulled back in a sleek ponytail with polished waves for an elegant aesthetic. The actor kept the rest of her look minimal as called for by the late evening suhoor, and went for a dainty necklace and hoop earrings, while her makeup featured a hint of a smoky eye and glowy skin.

The suhoor marked the first public event for Emad since the launch of the highly-awaited Arabic remake of Suits, in which she plays the role of Laila (originally Rachel played by Meghan Markle). Clips of the actor from the event saw her posing in front of the lantern-lined walls, and twirling to show off her flowy outfit and its tassels.

From 2014 to Now: 59 Pictures Charting Tara Emad’s Style Evolution

From 2014 to Now: 59 Pictures Charting Tara Emad’s Style Evolution

It is safe to say that Tara Emad has had one of the best style transformations in the Arab world. While the Egyptian actor may now be known for her leading roles in Middle Eastern TV and cinema, her relationship with fashion predates her acting career. This meant that the Cairo-born star had plenty of room to perfect her style credentials after walking her first runway show and winning a number of pageants as a teen.
Some of her first public appearances saw Emad in mini dresses and sparkling gowns, which although were time-appropriate, did not quite ooze the cool-girl vibe her looks so effortlessly do now. Whether it’s a pared-down off-duty outfit or an all-out red carpet one, Emad’s style has come to channel the best of her personality while striking the right balance between playful and bold. The mini dresses were swapped for structured ones with minimalistic flourishes, while the gowns she now wears feature edgy cut-outs and statement silhouettes.
A constant, however, is Emad’s passion for supporting Arab designers. The Suits Arabia star may be a close friend of Chanel and star in campaigns for international brands including Bulgari and Yves Saing Laurent, but her go-to designers have always been the ones closest to home. Emad has long been a supporter of Egyptian designer and friend Deana Shaaban and frequently walks the red carpet in her dresses. Some of the other Arab labels sported by the actor include Okhtein, Azzi & Osta, Sara Mrad, Nicolas Jebran, Zuhair Murad, and Harithand.

Stars of the Arabic remake of Suits came together in Dubai last night to celebrate the highly-anticipated show’s premiere. Walking down the red carpet were Asser Yassin, Ahmed Dawoud, and Mohamed Shahin dressed in dapper suits, while female actors Reem Moustafa, and Tara Emad opted for distinct dresses channeling their personal style.
Egyptian-Montenegrin star Emad’s look, in particular, stood out with its splash of color and the ultra-feminine aesthetic she is known to often embrace for her public appearances. The floaty dress was picked from Chanel‘s Spring/Summer 2022 collection and featured a sleeveless black bodice with a collar, and a silk chiffon skirt printed with pastel pink, yellow, and blue patterns. A friend of the French fashion house, Emad also picked a chain logo belt to adorn her waist and a black clutch as her arm candy for the evening. Her long hair was worn down in her signature glossy waves, while her makeup complemented the low-key look with glowy skin and nude lips.

Set to release this year during Ramadan on OSN, Suits Arabia will see Emad take on the role of Rachel Zane famously played by Meghan Markle in the hit US series. Although absent at the premiere, Jordanian actor Saba Mubarak is also part of the ensemble cast and will play the role of Jessica. The 30-episode series will be based on the original’s first two seasons and will premiere on April 2.

Celebrities, royalty and influencers: The 30 best dressed Arab women of 2021

Celebrities, royalty and influencers: The 30 best dressed Arab women of 2021

2021 was a year of highs and lows. As public spaces opened up around the world, people began timidly stepping out to breathe fresh air once again. But come the end of the year, the Omicron virus had us celebrating special occasions once again in safety pods, focusing on the little things that have made each day so special.
In the midst of it all, however, the swish set of the region did get a few occasions to come together in avant-garde ensembles, be it at the Red Sea Film Festival in Jeddah, or the Cannes Film Festival by the French Riviera. And for others, 2021 was just another reason to bring some cheer into daily life via interesting everyday ensembles. As Vogue Arabia wraps up another year of great style, we take a look back at the Arab women from all walks of life who topped trending charts with their #BestDressed moments. These are women who have inspired the mood boards of many with their sharp OOTDs, proving that while they may have access to the best stylists around, they also have a personal eye for aesthetics that always puts their personalities at the forefront via their impeccable wardrobes. Take notes!

Royalty
It’s safe to say that Queen Rania’s name goes hand-in-hand with the notion of timeless style. This year, the Jordan royal kept her followers on their toes, dressed in one impeccable ivory look after the other—she even made a case for all-white denim-on-denim! Most recently, it was her cream white coat dress that caught our eye, paired with a gold belt and matching Louis Vuitton handbag. Worn while welcoming Prince Charles and Camilla to the country, this look was a winner.

In stark contrast, Her Highness Moza bint Nasser stood out on Best Dressed charts for her love of vibrant colors and rich patterns. The royal took the stage at the Fashion Trust Arabia Awards Gala in a sapphire blue ensemble that proved that jewel tones will never go out of style. As for Qatar’s Sheikha Reem Al-Thani, who appeared on Vogue Arabia’s February 2021 issue, a memorable look from this year was the white abaya the royal wore in our pages.

Celebrities
Throughout the year, the region’s stars made sure to keep their fans engaged online by stepping out in eye-catching ensembles. At the very first Red Sea International Festival, Tara Emad won hearts in a semi-sheer ivory Harithand gown, and over by Lake Como, Yasmine Sabri celebrated Cartier in a beautifully draped, vivid green Nicolas Jebran gown.

The El Gouna Film Festival was another unmissable event this year, with several Arab favorites walking the red carpet in elegant ensembles. Among the very best were Tunisian star Dorra Zarrouk, who stood out in black Georges Chakra gown with asymmetrical ivory draping, and Egyptian icon Mona Zaki, who was unmissable in a sculpted ebony Maison Yeya number with powder pink panels.

Style influencers
The Middle East has more than its fair share of fashion connoisseurs, who did not disappoint this year. While designer Amina Muaddi and Dubai-based digital creator Leena Ha gave athleisure a luxe update by pairing their Balenciaga separates with statement pieces, art director and stylist Aram Kabbani added some cheer to the year in playfully paired hues. Ever the loyalist of elegant staples, Claudine Saab was seen on Instagram in a sharp pleated rendition of the classic white shirt, and blogger Oumayma Elboumeshouli gave the fail-safe black-and-white palette an edgy spin with unexpected silhouettes.

Among this year’s best dressed Arab women were also Algerian entrepreneur Ghizlan Guenez, who made a strong case for lounge-worthy looks in a sunshine yellow ensemble, and Vogue Scandinavia’s Rawdah Mohamed—who had a golden moment at the Ball of Arabia—along with Dana Al Khalifa of The Overdressed, who delighted her Instagram family with one perfectly curated look after another. Did you miss her festive red dress this December?

Meet more of 2021’s best dressed Arab women below, from Sheikha Reem Al-Thani and actor Nadine Nassib Njeim, to businesswoman Cherine Magrabi, filmmaker Farida Khelfa, designer Laila Moussa, and many more

Saudi Arabia‘s historic Al-Balad lit up on the evening of December 6 as some of the world’s biggest stars descended in Jeddah for the Kingdom’s first international film festival. The Red Sea International Film Festival‘s opening night was cause for celebration not only for the Middle East’s proud actors and filmmakers, but also global talents who joined in to spotlight the many achievements of Arab cinema. Showing their support, in attendance were Marvel star Anthony Mackie, English actor Clive Owen, American actor Hilary Swank, and Italian actor Michele Morrone. Internationally-followed models Candice Swanepoel, Alessandra Ambrosio, Irina Shayk, Shanina Shaik, and Sara Sampaio also made glamorous attendees, with some donning Arab designers. While Sampaio and Shaik chose shimmering pieces from Lebanese couturier—and Ball of Arabia 2021 co-chair—Zuhair Murad, Ambrosio opted for a white number by Georges Hobeika with a thigh-high slit.
The Arab world’s stars, of course, made sure to match the energy of the historic ceremony dressed in creations by regional designers. Jury member Hend Sabri championed Saudi talent in a bespoke off-white pleated gown by Honayda. Actors Razane Jammal and Tara Emad opted for flowing silhouettes by Lebanese label Harithand, while couturier Georges Hobeika’s head-turning pieces were worn by Saba Mubarak and Rym Saidi. As for iconic actors Yousra and Lebleba, delicate violet gowns doused in embellishment were the order for the day.
It’s safe to say, however, that saturated hues ruled the red carpet last evening. While Mila Al Zahrani opted for a royal blue tulle number, Mahira Abdelaziz chatted with Vogue Arabia in a draped orange Tony Ward, and Saudi actor Ahd Kamel went the emerald route in Jeddah-based Saudi designer Ruba Bahareth. Among the most interesting looks from the evening was Karen Wazen’s sharp black pantsuit, proof that power dressing never fails.
As the evening progressed, guests were treated to a theatrical dance performance that marked the opening of the 10-day festival at the Red Sea Gala Theatre, and also witnessed an award ceremony, where three inspiring women were honored: Egyptian actress Laila Elwi, who has often been admired for her bold choice of roles, French actress, singer, model, and producer Catherine Deneuve, and Saudi filmmaker Haifaa Al Mansour, who shared a heartfelt speech. Below, we take you through some of the best red carpet moments from the Red Sea International Film Festival.
