According to Cheney on Instagram, the dress is a fusion of the modern and the past.

Inspired by traditional porcelain techniques such as drawing and shaping to create its unique silhouette and charming texture, the masterpiece blends refreshing classics with the vitality of azure blue. Its magical details featured a unique sculpture that flowed around Rawdah’s form like the dynamic beauty of a blue Hydrangea.

Complementing her monochrome hijab, its long sleeves and high neckline offered a rare sense of elegance in a gathering dominated by the sultry trend. She added an extra statement with her delicate eyewear from Neubau.
