Taking her first season by storm, Malika El Maslouhi makes her presence known at Simon Porte Jacquemus’ F/W 2019 fashion show. Striding down the charming French town square set inspired by adolescence, El Maslouhi’s all-white outfit was one to catch.

Ralph Lauren’s glamorous F/W 2019 Runway ended beautifully with Malika El Maslouhi closing the show. The model showed off her beautiful smile while boldly moving around the ballroom, creating a memorable ending to an evening celebrating Hollywood elegance.


Breaking free from the French Haute Couture classics, the CHANEL Couture Autumn Winter 2022 fashion show was an ode to modernity and edginess. El Maslouhi walked the runway in a delicate black dress, precious diamonds around the neck, and edgy cowboy boots. How could we miss this style?

With a star-studded audience and a runway filled with superstars like Naomi Campbell and Taylor Hill, El Maslouhi shined at Messika’s 2022 Beyond The Light High Jewelry show in Paris. With her very feminine allure, Malika made a classy, yet cool and effortless appearance.


For Mission’s S/S 2023 show, Creative Director Filippo Grazioli’s first collection highlighted the beauty of minimalism. Second on the runway, El Maslouhi’s sleek and valiant walk gave a strong beat to the show. She, as the creative director wished, “shine a light” on Missoni’s heritage.
