Days after Egyptian actress Rania Youssef received backlash for wearing a revealing dress in the closing ceremony of Cairo International Film Festival, another dress has taken Egyptians by storm, but this time, due to its high cost.
Lebanese Actress Nicole Saba wore a gown bedazzled with diamonds and is worth over $11 million, made by Egyptian fashion designer Hani el-Beheri for his 10th fashion show.
It was shown among a large selection of the Egyptian designer’s latest evening gowns and wedding dresses for the winter and fall seasons of 2019, some of which had been shown at Paris Fashion Week.
Saba’s diamond studded dress, the priciest Beheri design to date, costs over 200 million Egyptian pounds, which amounts to 10 million Euros (over $11 million).
Many social media users were angered by its design and cost.
But this is not the first time Beheri designed a controversial similar dress, as last year, actress Yussra Al Lozi also walked the catwalk wearing a diamond studded wedding dress.
