45 gowns by Arab designers at Cannes Film Festival 2019

From Rami Kadi and Elie Saab to Zuhair Murad and Jean-Louis Sabaji, the labels of the region are certainly stealing the limelight

Call us biased, but when it comes to scene-stealing gowns and statement-making dresses, no one seems to do it quite like Arab designers.

Whether it's a sequinned sheath by Elie Saab or a laser-cut gown by Rami Kadi, labels from the region can often be found on any red carpet – and Cannes is no different.

The 72nd edition of the annual film festival is currently in full swing in the French Riviera and, as expected, a number of dreamy concoctions from Arab designers can be found at screenings, galas and premieres aplenty.

Stars such as Priyanka Chopra, Dame Helen Mirren, Amber Heard and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan are just a selection of those who've plucked creations from the offerings of regional designers, with Rami Al Ali, Zuhair Murad, Jean-Louis Sabaji and Georges Chakra among the labels on sartorial show.
