Hala Kamil is the subject of the Oscar-nominated documentary Watani: My Homeland and a Syrian refugee who looked just as glamorous as the stars on the red carpet. The mother of four wore a custom Brandon Maxwell two-piece gown that looked stunning. The ensemble included a velvet jacket in purple, a hue representative of her favorite flower, and was paired with a floor-grazing black skirt.
The film follows Hala and her children as they flee Aleppo to start a new life in Germany. Brandon Maxwell was touched by her story and connected with Hala through social media to dress the brave woman in collaboration with stylist Jamie Mizrahi. In a post to Instagram, Brandon expressed his pride in dressing Hala, "Hala's strength and courage throughout her experiences is supremely admirable. Seeing her walk the red carpet full of confidence and elegance, and being a small part of her special night means the world to me."
We hope Hala has an incredible night, one which she truly deserves. Keep scrolling to see more of Hala's elegant look.
