For the uninitiated, a Keffiyeh is a traditional Arab headdress that has become a symbol of Palestinian culture, identity, and resistance. At pro-Palestinian protests across the world amid the Israel-Hamas war, demonstrators have worn Keffiyeh around their necks or used them to cover their faces. By wearing the dress, Bella, who has been vocal about her support for Palestine and has been wearing vintage dresses during the Cannes Film Festival, mixed the love for archival dresses with her advocacy for Palestine.

The vintage Michael and Hushi Keffiyeh dress is from their archival collection. Bella shared the images of the original dress from when it debuted on Instagram with the caption, "#michaelandhushi @hushi5 Archival 2001 keffiyeh dress. Free Palestine forever." According to Hushidar Mortezaie (the label's co-founder), Michael Sears made the Keffiyeh dress and the pattern by hand.
