Gorgeous Filipino-Moroccan actress Ivana Alawi — whose full name is Mariam Sayed Sameer Marbella Al-Alawi — recently made headlines when she appeared in singer Bella Poarch’s music video for her song "Inferno".

The former Starstruck contestant looked stunning in a skin-tight dress with chain detailing, studs and some sheer panelling from Filipino designer, Thian Rodriguez. According to his Instagram page, Rodriguez creates bespoke leatherwear looks.

Alawi completed the look with fingerless lace gloves reminiscent of Madonna's iconic outfits.

In the music video, Alawi appeared alongside comedian and TikToker Bretman Rock. Rock, who is also Filipino, quickly commented, “You ate this look up!” in her photo.

While her look might be hard to pull off on regular date nights, it’s clear that the humble little black dress deserves a place in every woman’s wardrobe.
