Press play to go behind-the-scenes ahead of the Lebanese fashion icon’s red carpet appearance

Cannes Film Festival may have wrapped for another year, but we’re still swooning over Karen Wazen’s custom Rami Kadi gown. So much so, in fact, that we snuck into the Lebanese fashion icon’s dressing room whilst she was getting ready for the red carpet.

The Lebanese beauty repped her home country wearing a neon green and sequined dress from Beiruti designer Rami Kadi. She paired the look with jewels from Messika and shoes by former BAZAAR Bride cover star Andrea Wazen’s eponymous label.

“It’s my second year attending the Film Festival. After going last year I decided I want to go every year because I had such an amazing time,” says Karen in our behind-the-scenes interview. “The red carpet is such a magical moment. It’s something you dream of from watching the festival on TV when you’re a little girl. It’s a really fun yet dynamic events. I’m very lucky to be part of it.”
