Just when you thought that you’d seen everything in the way of bedlah (and who could forget Nagwa’s lobster costume?) along comes the costume designer for the 1990 Egyptian film ‘Shawader’(شوادر). “Yikes” just doesn’t do it justice does it? Who thought of the green pixie boots?
This is actress Madiha Kamal who plays the title role as Shawader, a bellydancer who’s set her sights on the wealthy, elderly gent Abdel Gawad (Kamal al Shinnawi) despite the fact that he’s already married and has adult children.
