Model criticizes executions in Iran with symbolic dress

Iranian model Mahlagha Jaberi used her appearance on the red carpet in Cannes to make a political statement. With her dress, she drew attention to the politics of the mullah regime.

The prestigious Cannes Film Festival is all about one thing: seeing and being seen. The Iranian model Mahlagha Jaberi (33) took advantage of this opportunity to set an example. With her dress she caused open mouths on the red carpet. Because it contained an unmistakably political message: A clear “stop” to the numerous executions that are currently taking place under the mullahs’ regime in Iran. The 33-year-old had now published a video about this on Instagram, which had meanwhile received huge applause.

Mahlagha Jaberi dress is said to be reminiscent of a sling

Jaberi appeared on the red carpet at the premiere of the film “The Old Oak” in a floor-length black dress. Just looking at the golden straps, which extend from the Iranian woman’s décolleté to a halterneck, takes your breath away. Because the entire cut represents the shape of a gallows rope in its design. “Stop Executions” is written in gold capital letters on the long train. The Iranian beauty uploaded another video on Instagram.

The message behind Iranian fashion designer Jila Saber’s dress is clear. Jaberi wants to draw attention to the wave of executions in Iran, where the brutal mullah regime wants to fight government critics and demonstrators. In the past few months alone, more than 200 people are said to have been executed – many of them are hanged after confessions have been extracted, some of them under torture.
