Day 1: Kiara made a grand debut in a white ivory ensemble by Indian designer Prabal Gurung. The dress featured a plunging neckline, a daring thigh-high slit, and a flowy silhouette. Simple yet elegant, she paired it with white pearl danglers and pointed heels.

Day 2: But Kiara wasn't done there! On the second day, she turned heads in a vibrant orange gown for the Red Sea Film Foundation's Women in Cinema Gala dinner. The gown, with its elegant ruching, accentuated her curves and was a bold pop of colour on the red carpet. To complete the look, she opted for classic gold earrings.

Day (presumably): Now, the outfit that truly stole the show was a black and pink masterpiece by luxury designer Nedret Taciroglu. This gown was all about drama and glamour! It had a delicate satin fabric, a flattering corset detail, and an off-the-shoulder neckline that showcased her elegance. The figure-hugging silhouette hugged her curves and flowed into a dramatic black velvet fishtail hemline with a flowing train. But the real showstopper was the oversized pink duchess satin bow at the back, perfectly capturing the 2024 trend of statement bows.
