Models, actresses, designers and more gather every year in New York for the Met Gala. While some celebrities wear wild attire, an equal number of fashionistas choose modest dresses inspired by Islamic abayahs. In fact, many styles seen on the 2016 Red Carpet can easily be incorporated into Muslim women’s wardrobes with the following abayas for sale.
Marvelous Metallic Maxi
With its bronze gold tone, this Julie abaya is similar to the Valentino Couture gown Rachel McAdams donned. Crafted in non-clinging jersey fabric, the comfortable yet classy maxi dress features fitted sleeves with gathers; body lined in soft crepe; subtle slimming stripe; and twisted waistband that adds shape. Best of all, this lovely abaya dress comes with a coordinating chiffon scarf to complete the look!
Darling Dotted Abaya
To adapt Beyonce’s Givenchy in Haute Couture into everyday Islamic wear, opt for this casual chic Uma abaya dress. Instead of bling sewn onto the material, this fully-lined maxi boasts a less formal and more versatile micro-dot print design that lets you go from work to play. Plus, the crinkle chiffon abaya includes mother of pearl buttons; chest pockets and cuffed roll-tab sleeves; shirt collar; simple A-line skirt; and a detachable belt!
Glittering Gold Gown
Girls star Jemima Kirke was quite the golden girl in Chanel—and you can be too when you don this Iman abaya with crepe lining. Crafted in a tone-on-tone woven brocade in an intricate floral weave, the fully-lined formal features front and rear darts for shaping; inverted pleats at side vents for ease of movement; full straight sleeves for coverage; rear invisible zipper; and a matching solid chiffon wrap with a thin embroidered edge. If that’s not enough, it also comes with a sparkling rhinestone encrusted neckline for added glam!
Amazing Amie Abaya
Make a regal entrance in this royal blue iridescent textured Amie abaya with train similar to the Michael Kors formal worn by actress Emily Blunt. The tailored gown features faceted jewels to accent the shoulders; a modest keyhole neckline with jewel detail; straight-fitted sleeves; rear invisible zipper and built in bra. The unlined body is non-transparent while the sleeves are lined—all for modest opacity. Last but not least, this stunning ensemble includes a shimmering chiffon hijab!
Beaming Black Caftan
Like Kris Jenner’s blinged-out Balmain, the glittering Mariel maxi proves there’s nothing basic about black. The gracefully flowing abaya dress boasts a delicate metallic linear print accented with hand beading. A chiffon overlay covers a plain crepe long sleeve dress with a spaghetti tie belt so you can wear it belted or loose. Top your ensemble off with the coordinating soft chiffon scarf (included) and you’re ready for any formal function!
