In Africa, systemic interference and denial of individual freedom including freedom of choice of dressing style is not confined to Egypt. It is endemic in several other countries there, that often rationalize the human right violation on moral grounds. As such, women and female celebrities in particular, are shamed, charged, and even compelled to deliver public apologies when they dress in manners perceived morally inappropriate by the oppressive and regressive regimes.
Sheer dresses similar to the one chosen by Rania Youssef are trendy outfits and very popular among female celebrities in the free world.
