Hend Sabry Looks Effortlessly Chic Sporting This Lebanese Designer At TIFF

It’s been the year of Hend Sabry and it's still only September. An actress, UN World Food Programme ambassador, lawyer and eternal style icon, the Tunisian-Egyptian star oozes timeless elegance on every red carpet she walks, and TIFF has been no exception. The Ayza Atgawiz actress stepped out at Toronto International Film Festival on Monday to attend the world premiere of Hinde Boujemaa’s debut feauture, Noura’s Dream, in which Sabry plays the role of a single mother forced to make a difficult decision when her husband is released from prison. 

The actress stunned in a sleek monochrome ensemble by Lebanese label Azzi & Osta, sporting the Long Sleeve White Shirt With Cape and High Waisted Black Pants With Ruffle Volume from the designer’s ready-to-wear spring/summer 2019 collection. 

Beirut-based brand Azzi & Osta is renowned for its dramatic silhouettes and distinctive blend of vintage fabrics and contemporary tailoring. Founded by couturiers George Azzi and Assaad Osta, the label has picked up admirers in the likes of Beyoncé, Khloe Kardashian, Nadine Labki and former BAZAAR cover star Queen Rania. 

This wasn’t Sabry’s first film festival appearance this season, nor her first appearance wearing the Lebanese label. She dazzled us all in another Azzi & Osta creation just days ago at Venice Film Festival, where she was the first-ever female Arab jury member, judging the debut film category. The silver-screen icon was also awarded Venice's Starlight Cinema Award, celebrating her "great talent and outstanding artistic career", and making history yet again as the first Arab woman to be given the honour.
