I think the most interesting part about writing this was my initial research for Arab stars at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Apart from finding practically nothing about them, Google’s powerful search engine revealed an article about shots being fired at the Film Festival. It was the second one featured.
This humoured me. Fortunately, no Arabs were involved in this incident bringing me to question the integrity of Google. As much as I would love to disembowel this issue, possibly concluding it by labelling Google as anti-Semitic, this is about the Arab celebrities and designer dresses that glistened the Red Carpet at Cannes with their glimmer and glam.
Egypt’s pride is carried high on the fine shoulders of Arwa Gouda that sashayed elegantly along with her placid disposition. Her strapless dress designed by Yasmine Yeya caressed across the Red Carpet with a glistening flame suited for her persona.
Zuhair Murad’s spring summer 2013 collection couldn’t have made a better statement on the Red Carpet. Eva Longoria effortlessly took the gaze of the mass in a backless dress from the collection protruding a breathtaking tone.
Cheryl Cole served the colour red justice in another Zuhair Murad dress blending class with her naturally arousing demeanour. Zuhair’s immaculate gown was nothing short of brilliance.
Another Lebanese designer showcased his latest collection on Chinese fashion icon Fan Bingbing. Elie Saab’s dress radiated through the Red Carpet creating a pleasant contrast.
The second strike to his name was just as notable as his first. Elie Saab scored high yet again with a simple chic dress on Carina Lau. She carried herself elegantly making a strong stance for lady-like style.
Our Arab comrades deserve a respectful nod for their performances on the Red Carpet this year at Cannes. Unfortunately this is all I was able to find. I could partially blame the favouritism practiced by most media streams that cover these events but I’ll just ignore that and point the blame finger at Google for being a bigot.
