Egypt's rising starlet, Menna Shalabi,  looked quite the part on the red carpet, all glamor and glitz, among the cast of new movie “Ba’ad Al Mawqea” (After the Battle) - a film tracing post-Mubarak awakening Egypt and particpating in the Cannes Film Festival .
Greek goddess reveals her shoulder and more at Cannes
Menna modelled a Grecian inspired , toga-fashion get-up, draped in a striking white backless dress held together with neck straps and a silver belt. This bare look revealed her “Cherry” off- the-shoulder tattoo as she struck poses for the eager cameras. She had her hair pinned up in a neat bun, fixed by two braids flanking her head.
Her minimal trappings afforded her that stunning Hollywood  radiance and glow. Previous to this dashing garment however, her last appearance had not gone down so well. In the press conference right ahead of the film premier, Menna showed up in a less-alluring, more matcho outfit, complete with neck tie, and long baggy pants that enveloped her entirely.
We can only wonder what she sported to the after-festival bash.
