Hello peeps! Yes, it’s fashion time. Style Lens will be your photographic eye on the trends that dominate the streets of Cairo every other week. However, this week we couldn’t have let Ramadan pass by without saluting the work of the forgotten soldiers behind some of the most talked about TV series this Ramadan aka Stylists. In our opinion, the stylists actually fared better than the actors this year!

It’s pretty obvious how actresses’ wardrobes –not only in TV series- have witnessed some major up-scaling in the last couple of years. We now see actresses carrying designer handbags through the day in a scene, along with couture pieces and makeup that follow the latest worldwide trends in fashion and beauty. This year’s series that took our breaths away with some renowned fashion trends were Hekayet Hayah starring Ghada Abdelrazek and Razan Maghraby, ElShakk starring May Ezz Eldin and Nekdeb Law ‘Olna Mabenhebbesh starring Yosra and Amina Khalil.

Kicking this off with Hekayet Hayah:

The luxurious life presented in Hekayet Hayah needed a wardrobe that was as equal in luxury and pronouncing it even more.

Razan;  adorning her casual look of a black blazer, top and jeans with a statement chained golden necklace and a Hermès Birkin while Ghada wearing a fur vest with a fur clutch which obviously “don’t mix” unfortunately.

 

Off to ElShakk:

With the immense wealth that poured onto Waseela in ElShakk out of nowhere, her looks had to channel the money that allowed her to become that woman.

This monochrome wrap-around asymmetric dress made us gasp the moment we saw it.

This nude dress with hints of lace appearing from the slit screams “Work outfit gone sexy” accessorized with a black Birkin and you have a bombshell.

Nude scores again, this time with sultry smokey eye shadow and an Arabic calligraphy necklace that bore her character’s name.

Even when she was pregnant, she still managed to look so elegant with this flowing cape dress.

 

Finally, Nekdeb Law ‘Olna Mabenhebbesh:

The whole cast was intriguingly fashionable, from Yosra’s controversial ombre to Amina Khalil’s every day fashionista, it was fun to watch the series just for fashion’s sake.
