The Arab Cinema Awards took place at the Movenpick Hotel in Cairo the last week of March. Although there were plenty of talented actresses at this “Egyptian version of the Oscars” there was plenty of….boring fashion. Boring, or just weird. So I have to imagine that these lovely but misguided ladies were doing something else right before the ceremony and thus had no time to pick a great outfit, because the alternative-that a stylist helped pick out their blah gowns-is unacceptable. And the award goes to….!
Yousra….was watching her old films decided to put every single woman to shame by flaunting her va-va-voom charms (and that amazing jewelry) on full, glorious display.
Asala…..was buying cupcakes at a bakery and brought one with her to stave off hunger and boredom. She really rocks this classy casual look, but would it have killed her to wear a gown, or at leasst a pantsuit?!
Ingy…..was shopping the sale racks where everything was a size large. This is a unique print, but somehow still boring?!?
Abeer Sabry….was dreaming of going to Greece for a vacation. This is pretty but typical.
Alla Kushnir…. Was too busy bellydancing, duh. This is at least unique, but I like her sultry friend’s more-appropriate gown better.
Susan Badr….was listenibg to her Lebanese stylist, which of course meant that she’d show up in with tons of makeup and an illusion netting gown.
Mariam Amin…..was on a hunting trip abroad, where she killed whatever animal it is whose entire carcass is covering that insanely boring dress.
Sally…..was attending an Italian wedding. No seriously, everything about this screams Guido Italian wedding in New Jersey.
Dunia Samir Ghanem….was clearly not reading a fashion magazine, because this is so illfitting and awkward and distatsteful that I don’t know where to start.
Ola Ramy…..was at her shrink’s office, who told her that it wouldn’t matter what she wore if she posed next to Yousra during the event. Psyche!
