From Arab stars to Hollywood favorites, Cannes’ annual amfAR charity gala co-sponsored for the third consecutive year by the Red Sea International Film Festival in support of raising funds for Aids research has seen a star-studded night. We’ve rounded up all the major celebs that were in attendance at the philanthropic event.
Kicking things off with Egyptian queen, Youssra, she made her way to the gala draped in a white angelic gown. The star was photographic with several stars that ranged from Mohammed Al Turki to Eva Longoria. Keeping with the French theme of Cannes, the feathery gown that Youssra wore was designed by Stephane Rolland.
The night also featured Hollywood stars: Pitch Perfect’s Rebel Wilson, Emily in Paris’ favorite, Lucien Leon Laviscount, WestWorld’s James Marsden and Beastly’s Alex Pettyfer and so many more.
Stunning in Arab designs were Lebanese TV host, Raya Abirached who donned a white gown with gold detail by Tony Ward and Portuguese model, Sara Sampaio who wore a Cinderella blue gown with cutouts by Zuhair Murad. Murad also dressed model, Winnie Harlow for the Gala in a sophisticated, two-piece black top and skirt.
The ultimate show-stopper of the night, however, was Heidi Klum’s pistachio green puffy, feather-esque gown designed by Lebanese designer, Georges Hobeika.
The night also featured major singers such as Bebe Rexha and Halsey. What was your favorite look of the night?
