Transparent dresses have been all over the world’s red carpet since late 2016. A sheer dress with undergarments was a go-to look for every celebrity on every award show red carpet. However, Egyptian actress, Rania Youssef, did not receive the same feedback as international starlet when she chose the transparent look.
It was the closing ceremony for the Cairo International Film Festival when all hell broke loose after Youssef’s appearance. In a black sheer dress with what looked like a one-piece bathing suit underneath, the actress looked fabulous yet Egyptians thought it was provocative.
After the actress suffered from a severe backlash on social media, news came out that Youssef will go on trial for being too provocative. Charged with public obscenity, the actress’s trial is scheduled to begin on January 12.
If convicted, the actress might face up to five years in jail for inciting debauchery. Youssef quickly released a public apology stating that she misjudged the situation and offending her fans was not her intentions.
