The world’s festival of filmmakers, the Cannes International Film Festival, closed last weekend.
It is said that a female model came out wearing a lasso-shaped dress on the red carpet and attracted attention.
A woman appeared in a black dress on the Cannes red carpet.
However, if you look closely at the dress, the neck area is shaped like a noose.
On the hem of the dress, a phrase is written in English, “Stop the death penalty.”
This is the dress worn by Iranian American model Mahlaga Jaberi.
After the festival, Javeri posted a video on social media calling for the abolition of the death penalty, saying, “Sacred to the people of Iran.”
In fact, more than 200 women are said to have been executed in Iran this year alone.
When the dress became controversial, some critics said, “Isn’t she trying to promote a fashion brand by bringing in the Iranian issue?”
In response, Jarberry said that she wore the dress to get real media attention and that “the meaning of the noose, which symbolizes the hanging, was well conveyed.”
