Hollywood’s knack for Lebanese designers


Lebanese Designers @ The OscarsAudio report – When Halle Berry chose back in 2002 – unknown Lebanese couturier Elie Saab to design her dress for her first-ever Oscar nomination for best actress, it seemed like a bold choice.

In 2009, it seems like the obvious choice – no less than three of People magazine’s “best-dressed stars” chose Lebanese designers for the year’s biggest event.

Angelina Jolie went with an exquisitely draped black gown by Elie Saab, a strapless style that set off her creamy skin and provided the perfect foil for a 115-carat pair of emerald earrings (what recession?). Evan Rachel Wood, who starred in this year’s The Wrestler, chose an ivory strapless number, with criss-crossed drapes across the bodice. Luckily there are few snowstorms in Los Angeles, or she’d disappear into the scenery. Miley Cyrus, the daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus and a singer in her own right, was dressed by Zuhair Murad, in a heavily-beaded dress that she told TV presenter Ryan Seacrest “weighed 100,000 pounds.”

Saab and Murad are now regulars on the awards-show circuit, regularly summoned to dress the likes of Jenna Fischer, Carrie Underwood, Beyonce and Tyra Banks for the Oscars, the Golden Globes and other industry events. This year they were joined by Georges Chakra and Reem Accra, who dressed Queen Latifa and Fiola Davis respectively. It’s only a matter of time before the next generation of Lebanese designers – talents like Basil Soda* and Rabih Kayrouz – drape and dazzle their way onto the red carpet.
