Diana left no stone unturned for her red carpet debut at Cannes. For the event, Diana chose a multilayered, salmon-pink Nedret Taciroglu/Nedo gown. The organza silk, multilayered gown, boasted the most beautiful and meticulous embroidery and just the right amount of faux feathers. We especially loved the embellished sweetheart neckline. With a Hollywood-glam hairdo and tear drop earrings, Dina sure checks out all the boxes!
