Here's How Middle Eastern Influencers Have Taken Over Paris Fashion Week

From Karen Wazen and Jessica Kahawaty, to our former cover-star Dana Hourani and Leena Al Ghouti - your favourite-follows have been slaying the scene at Paris Fashion Week. These Middle-Eastern influencers, and more, have been posting some of the most trendy looks on Instagram from one of the most awaited weeks in the fashion industry. They've definitely brought their A-games and we're here for it. Scroll down to learn more about some of the best outfit-posts that these ladies have brought to Paris' streets...


Karen Wazen

Get you a girl who can do both. A family & fashion favourite, Karen Wazen has always been known to bring fun Instagram posts ranging from fashion and beauty to lifestyle. This of course includes her adorable children and family (that always gives us major baby-fever). But when it comes to fashion week, her posts pull out all the stops. Wearing a funky patterened Balmain dress to the Balmain show, and then switching to an elegant black silk David Koma dress for dinner is giving us major 'Day & Night' vibes. 


Jessica Kahawaty

Lebanese/Australian influencer Jessica Kahawaty always stuns in whatever she wears - that's a fact. For Paris fashion week, her outfits were some of our favourites. The model & humanitarian rocked an over-sized matte turquoise suit from Acne Studios that screamed 80s-nostalgia. Her other post of a low-cut a-line dress with padded shoulders and a navy-white pattern followed this theme and gave off a very Parisian woman-boss vibe.

Whether it's casual or formal, Rania Fawaz presented looks that were to die for. Styling a revolve bodycon nude dress with the classic Jacquemus mini bag and oversized Loewe sunglasses fits right into our favourite streetstyle series. In her other post, Fawaz rocks a golden Ralph & Russo asymmetrical dress to the designer's S/S20 show.

Lebanese model & influencer Noor Arida was also amongst the stylish spotted in Paris for fashion week. Her fun and quirky posts didn't stop for these star-studded runways - they just got better. The classic eiffel-tower-post includes a cute ensemble of a cropped white sweater and the comfortable mom jeans we all know well & love. Arida's post of her daughter, Ayla, and the influencer attending the Chloé fashion show is what we saved in our archives though. Both mom & daughter are serving all-Chloé looks styled with the cutest kid sunglasses for Ayla, and a beige short-sleeved coat for Nour. Most definitely mother-daughter goals. 


Dana Hourani

There's no such thing as too many feathers. Our previous BAZAAR cover-star Dana Hourani gives us her usual edgy & fashionable style for Paris Fashion Week. Wearing an all-white Ingie ensemble (including a gorgeous sheared fur coat) for her first post, Hourani's outfit is placed as one of our favourite looks. She then gave us another feathered-ensemble for the Maison Valentino show, but this time in bright orange! Well now we definiely know what will be trending this winter.


Lana El Sahely

Floral dresses done right - is what Lana El Sahely brough to this Paris Fashion Week. Her post parining a one-shouldered ruffle brown paisley dress with knee-high Jimmy Choo's gave us the perfect Autumn-outfit for the Altuzarra show. And then following that on Instagram with a Maison Valentino multi-coloured pink maxi dress brings a beautiful Autumn on Spring contrast - presenting Parisian seasons.

Lebanese influencer, Nathalie Fanj, is another one of our Middle Eastern influencers that posted a classic pose-infront-of-the-eiffel-tower photo. Her knitted & striped crop top paired white pants and Shwaz belt-bag is an ensemble we're here for. This casual look is only made better by another one of her Instagram posts, which gave us major workwear-inspo. A puffed-shoulder blue-white striped blouse by Johanna Ortiz and the currently-trending Bottega Veneta bag are the new items we want to add to our cart for the most stylish office-looks.

Yet another Middle Eastern influencer who has stepped out on the streets of Paris, has slayed. Palestinian fashion and beauty influencer Leena Al Ghouti pairs red & green tartan pants with a Korean-branded short trenchcoat to give us a chic-French winter look. In another one of her looks, Al-Ghouti matches an all-black Kristina Fidelskaya ensemble with a neon yellow jacket to give the outfit a splash of colour; and let's not forget the trendy touch of accessorising with a Jacquemus mini bag.

We can't wait to see what our regional influencers will be wearing to next year's fashion weeks...
