Another day, another impeccable outfit from Amina Muaddi. The Jordanian-Romanian accessories designer struck the right balance between day and nighttime summer glam when she stepped out in France this week.
For her trip to the Fontainebleau Palace, Muaddi picked a light green one-shoulder dress from Alexandre Vauthier, which came in draped stretch-satin fabric. Flouncy at the top with long, fitted sleeves, the asymmetrical bottom of the dress featured ruched detailing on one side for a figure-hugging look, and fit right in with Muaddi’s bold and feminine sense of style.

Naturally, the highlights of the designer’s look were accessories from her celebrity-loved eponymous brand. Going for a blinged-out look, Muaddi paired the dress with her silver Paloma clutch bag, and the Gilda glass sandals (complete with her signature Martini-glass heels), both of which came entirely covered in crystals. They clearly weren’t enough for Muaddi, who also matched her manicure to her ensemble by going for green rhinestones on top of a metallic silver base, which also makes for an Instagram-worthy beauty moment.

Statement dresses such as this Alexandre Vauthier number play a major role in Muaddi’s wardrobe. Following her stay in France, the designer flew to Ibiza to celebrate Dua Lipa’s birthday, for which she wore a nude-colored corset-style dress from Acne Studios. For inspiration on styling similar wardrobe heroes, one need not look further than Muaddi’s Instagram.

With a number of high-profile collaborations in her career, there’s no doubt that Amina Muaddi‘s passion is palpable in every launch. For her latest, the Jordanian-Romanian accessories designer is taking things a step further by honoring her Arab roots through a full-fledged campaign.
The imagery accompanies Drop 2/22 of Muaddi’s namesake label beloved for its edgy heels, which are modeled by Imaan Hammam of Moroccan-Egyptian heritage in this campaign. The former Vogue Arabia cover star forms part of a Middle East and North African team enlisted by Muaddi to honor the collective Arab culture and the DNA of her brand. While the looks were styled by Jahleel Weaver, who is Muaddi’s longtime collaborator, friend, and stylist to Rihanna, the photos were shot in Cairo by Egyptian-British visual artist Dexter Navy.

“I had been trying to make this project happen with Dexter for quite a long time,” shares Muaddi with Vogue Arabia. “I really wanted to do something meaningful, an ode to my Arab heritage and a celebration of our culture.” Although born in Romania to a Jordanian father and Romanian mother, Muaddi and her family moved to Amman shortly after her birth, where she spent part of her childhood. “I had a big family and a lot of cousins who I would play all the time with,” the designer had recollected in a previous conversation with editor-in-chief Manuel Arnaut. “I had this garden where my family had figs and olive trees, and to this day when I taste figs, I remember Jordan so it was definitely an important moment of my life.”
In the campaign, Hammam wears the brand’s new embellished heels, which would fit right in on a red carpet walked by one of Muaddi’s many A-list clients just as much as they blend in with Cairo’s vibrant scenes in the campaign. “This project is important because it is close to our hearts,” says the designer. “There isn’t nearly enough representation and spotlight on people with our background. It was crucial for me to work with an almost entirely Arab crew.”

Skirt suit to a couture show? Amina Muaddi said yes to the season’s polished-meets-sensual trend in Paris this week. Attending the Dior Fall/Winter 2022 show, the Jordanian-Romanian accessories designer was spotted wearing a grey two-piece from the French fashion house.
Muaddi’s coordinated pick for the day came in a textured slate gray, which she contrasted with a classic white button-up shirt. Those who keep up with the former Vogue Arabia cover star will know that her outfits are far from basic and always come with a touch of playfulness, which was also the case with her latest ensemble. Peeking through from beneath her shirt was a black lace bralette, while the skirt came with black bike shorts that lent a sporty vibe to her otherwise smart look.
As someone who creates shoes and bags for a living, Muaddi knows how to make the most of her accessories, even when they are not from her namesake brand. For yesterday’s show, the 34-year-old’s arm candy of choice was a Mini Lady Dior bag in a light blue shade that added a pop of color to her neutral ensemble, paired with white strappy heels. The color play did not end there. Painted over her eyelids was a wash of bright pink eyeshadow which livened up her beauty look, completed with wing liner, and a glossy pout.

Amina Muaddi is once again turning the streets of Paris into her personal runway. Known for her bold-meets-cool girl style, the Jordanian-Romanian accessories designer’s sartorial choices truly shine ahead of the menswear fashion shows in the French city.
Her first look of the week was worn while attending the Louis Vuitton show, which was created and held in its late artistic director Virgil Abloh‘s memory. Muaddi was spotted in an oversized outfit from the French fashion house, consisting of a matching jacket and pants, which came with contrasting panels of blue and neon green over black. She paired the sporty two-piece with a white T-shirt which was knotted at the waist, gold necklaces, and a satchel bag by Louis Vuitton with neon detailing.

The former Vogue Arabia cover star followed this outfit with an even more colorful one for Loewe‘s recent dystopian show. Making a serious case for color-blocking, Muaddi’s flared pants from the Spanish fashion house came in four different hues—red and yellow on one leg, and green and orange on the other—and a double waistline for extra quirkiness. A plain white bralette-style top balanced the look out, while a yellow cross-body bag brought just the right amount of drama back to the ensemble.

Proving that she can do minimalism just as well, Muaddi’s next fashion week outing saw her step out in an all-white dress. Muaddi attended Jacquemus‘ Le Papier (The Paper) show in Arles wearing a backless figure-hugging number by the brand, which featured straps for sleeves. Going for gold open-toed sandals, the only other accessories worn by the designer were a brown Le Chiquito, light grey hoop earrings, and a couple of bracelets.
With many more fashion shows coming up, watch this space to see how Muaddi plays up her style next.

This Is the Classic Amina Muaddi Shoe that Rihanna Has Worn Throughout Her Pregnancy

This Is the Classic Amina Muaddi Shoe that Rihanna Has Worn Throughout Her Pregnancy

When an accessory receives Rihanna’s seal of approval, we all sit up and take note. Amina Muaddi’s Ursina pumps are one such product. Rihanna knows a great heel when she sees one, and she’s rarely parted from her Ursinas.
Amina Muaddi’s point-toe pumps are an easy sell for any footwear fanatic. Although they don’t bear the brand’s instantly-recognizable hourglass heel, they come with a razor-sharp stiletto.
The Ursinas have been a permanent fixture in Rihanna’s wardrobe for some time. It was Muaddi’s heels that she turned to for her pregnancy announcement portraits. Barely visible beneath her baggy Vetements jeans, Rihanna wore the stiletto pumps in a deep Bordeaux hue, with a diamanté strap buckled around her ankle. Comfort to Rihanna is a heel she can rely upon for the most important occasions. The fact that she’s worn them on repeat, even in her final trimester, is proof that she holds them dear.

More Muaddi highlights from Rihanna include the look she wore to the latest Gucci show: a patent crop top, trousers sitting beneath her growing belly, a chainmail headpiece and pink pixelated snakeskin Ursinas with a citrine-adorned ankle strap. Testament to the shoe’s versatility, she wore them again for an outing in LA with a terry Bottega bralette, pastel Vetements jeans and an R13 workwear jacket.

The pristine white and camo satin colourways are other favorites. Rihanna sported the former at her Savage X Fenty Vol. 3 show, and the latter on multiple night outs, often with one of her many head-turning miniskirts.

Models Anok Yai and Hailey Bieber have fallen for Amina Muaddi’s Ursina heels, too. Like Rihanna, Hailey has worn hers with bare legs to show off their full potential. Anok, meanwhile, wore hers with a scene-stealing LBD to the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Party last month.

Take their word for it, Amina Muaddi’s Ursina pumps are an investment worth your while.

Amina Muaddi: “I Like to Hear People’s Opinions. But When I Make Decisions, I Follow My Instinct”

Amina Muaddi: “I Like to Hear People’s Opinions. But When I Make Decisions, I Follow My Instinct”

The world’s most sought-after shoe designer is expanding her universe, facing growing pains head on, and entering her power along the way.

In the lounge of Paris’s new Bulgari Hotel, Amina Muaddi is sitting comfortably, having arrived in advance of this interview. Her hair is swept off her face in a high ponytail, revealing immaculate skin. Her almond eyes are soulful and her expression is tender. She looks exactly as she does in the pictures she posts to her 1.1 million followers, should anyone wonder otherwise.
On her wrist is a diamond-encrusted vintage Bulgari gold watch. Her T-shirt features a stream of questions like, “Do penguins have knees?” Since our last meeting for Vogue Arabia three years ago, Muaddi appears less on guard – and rightly so. Her relationship with the magazine precedes its launch issue, for which she was the subject of a style feature, showcasing her shoes not yet in stores but already on the feet of some of the world’s most elusive celebrities. Now, five years later, Muaddi is on the cover, cementing her status as the epitome of what many women in the region and the world aspire to be – beautiful, embodying the zeitgeist, creative, financially independent, and, as CEO and full owner of her company, a woman entirely in control.
“It’s becoming bigger and bigger,” Muaddi affirms of the rapid-fire growth of her eponymous company, which launched in August 2018 with 45 pairs of flared-heel stilettos. There has since been a collaboration with A$AP Rocky’s creative agency, Awge, marking the rapper’s first foray into women’s shoes; being director of Rihanna’s Fenty Footwear; a ready-to-wear line and catsuit with built-in heels with Wolford; the launch of accessories including box bags for evening and a jewelry collection; and a special colorway on the Julia sandal made with Swarovski. “I see it more like a universe,” Muaddi says of her brand, matter-of-factly.
In the mere three-and-a-half years since her line launched, Muaddi’s universe has proven to be the place women want to be. On social media, women fawn over her designs. One client in Asia created a Christmas tree with only Amina Muaddi shoes as decorations – an expensive feat, considering the average price for a pair hovers around €800.

On e-commerce sites like Farfetch or Matchesfashion, key styles like the transparent “glass” shoe that every bride wants to marry in are likely sold out. They retail for more than €2,000 – a grand higher than the Manolo Blahnik Hangisi pumps Sex and the City character Carrie Bradshaw famously got married in. The Amina Muaddi clients are high fashion conscious and invest in precious glamour and the dream of what can follow. “They are shoes for fierce, strong, feminine women who are citizens of the world. I want them to look and feel great when they wear the shoes; the comfort is an added quality,” comments their designer. The brand expansion didn’t come without its learning curves and Muaddi admits that there have been growing pains. “Being independent, not belonging to a group and not having business partners makes things more complicated,” she says. “The growth is so fast, even though I kept the development of the brand slow, but still, there are things you can’t control. But everyone is committed to the project.” The employees she started out with have all stayed the course. Paloma, Muaddi’s press officer, looks like she would take a bullet for her boss. When the going gets tough, Muaddi seeks higher counsel from her agent and mentor Massimo Bonini, who has been with her since 2013, and her attorney – “a very wise woman” – who consults for her brand.
“And I have a lot of friends who work in the industry,” Muaddi adds. “I listen to everyone. I always think it’s important to be open to other perspectives. But then when I make decisions, I follow my instinct. I like to hear people’s opinions, whether it’s experienced people or young people, because they have a fresher approach. Ultimately, I go with what I think is right.” “As someone who has had the privilege of knowing and collaborating closely with Amina, I’ve seen firsthand the unique understanding she has of the needs and wants of a woman,” says Jahleel Weaver  Rihanna’s stylist and creative director. The two met in 2018 ahead of being invited to create the shoes for Rihanna’s Fenty line. The superstar singer is often photographed wearing Amina Muaddi shoes, as are Hailey Bieber, Kim Kardashian, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, FKA Twigs, Bruna Marquezine, Natalia Vodianova, Imaan Hammam, and Paloma Elsesser. “Amina’s extensive knowledge and expertise in her field has allowed her to succeed in all her creative endeavors, with every new project showcasing the extent of her creative mind,” continues Weaver. “She has proven herself a pioneer in her industry during this new age as a woman whose talent and abilities know no bounds.”

With the supersonic expansion of her business, Muaddi is focused on structuring it and, just maybe, not working so hard all the time. “Sometimes I feel tired as well,” the designer admits. “I’m tired but I’m not panicking. I’m happy that I get to do what I love and what is missing, I will work to fix it.” Muaddi is more aware of seizing the present moment since the loss of her close friend Virgil Abloh. Two weeks prior to his shock passing, the former Louis Vuitton Man creative director and Off-White designer presented Muaddi with the entrepreneur of the year award in Doha on behalf of Fashion Trust Arabia. “This evening I want to give an entrepreneur award to a woman who does our industry wonders,” he started. “She’s led by her excellence in creativity, her personality and perseverance. I met her many moons ago in many different scenes in Milan or in Paris, when we were both just trying to get our brands to be at a place where they could receive an award or present an award like this. I could go on and on but I’m very sure this room is familiar with this woman’s work,” he said of his friend. At the time of his passing, the two had begun working on an undisclosed collaboration. “I did not know he was dying,” she says. “I discovered the news on Instagram – it was the worst to see that on Instagram. I saw the photo and thought, this is not a photo he would post. Then I read the caption. I just started crying. I was in the middle of the street in London and a girl stopped to ask me if I was OK. I lifted my eyes and saw she was carrying an Off-White bag. I sat in shock for days. I had texted him just the day before. He was happy until the end. Until the very last day he was such a strong spirit. I’m in awe and admiration for how he handled his journey.”
A year and a half prior, Muaddi had already suffered a tremendous loss when her stepfather, who raised her, died from cancer. “He also didn’t tell anyone he was sick. He didn’t tell his family, not even his mother,” she recalls. “A strong man who doesn’t want to be seen in a different way, who doesn’t want to be seen with pity.” Muaddi continues to work through her grief. “Dealing with these losses, you feel an anger that you must deal with while trying to have a positive approach. It’s made me more spiritual, which helped me connect with people who are gone.” The designer shares that she was raised with multiple religions: her father is Muslim and her mother is Christian. “I don’t believe in only one religion; I believe in God,” she asserts. “God tests you for a reason; there is a lesson in there. That’s my outlook on life. I’m a Gemini. I go from zero to a hundred very quickly, but I don’t hold grudges. I’m fiery and passionate. What hurts me is lack of loyalty and being lied to. I can accept any truth, any day, over a lie. I’ve surrounded myself with people who genuinely love me and that’s happiness.”
Muaddi, having finished her spaghetti, orders an espresso, something of a cultural trace from her years living in Milan as a design student. She’ll soon head to the office and that evening, she will attend the Paris Saint-Germain versus Real Madrid football game, for a rare night out. “I live and breathe my work, but tonight, there’s a big football game, it should be fun,” she smiles. Her Instagram stories will reveal field level seats as the only insight into her personal life; not who she’s with, or if there is anyone she is braving the rain to spend time with. Is Amina Muaddi living the dream? You can bet on it. And to keep it that way, she’ll keep it to herself.

While having impeccable personal style is not a prerequisite for being an accessory designer, it certainly helps, and Amina Muaddi is living proof of that. On one hand, the Jordanian-Romanian creative’s namesake footwear label has found fans in stars including Rihanna and Kim Kardashian, and on the other, Muaddi’s wardrobe makes her sartorial sense enviable in its own right.
The designer and CEO is a fixture at fashion weeks, which means she always brings her street style A-game to the shows. Paired with statement footwear—from calf-length boots and platforms to pointed-toe heels—from her own brand, are covetable pieces thoughtfully put together. Take, for example, her outfit for the Prada show in 2020, which saw multiple prints layered in a palette of fresh hues, and the Dior look in 2022 which combined two different animal prints to make one noteworthy ensemble. Muaddi is a fan of the monochrome look too, and often opts to wear one color head-to-toe, whether that is an oversized white shirt tucked into a high-waisted skirt and paired with matching accessories, or a bright red vinyl coat dress worn with matching boots. A few of her most eye-catching outfits also feature color-blocking, like when she wore solid blue boots with red separates and a lilac blouse with a dark green skirt.

The March issue of Vogue Arabia celebrates two significant milestones – it’s the fifth anniversary of the world’s leading fashion title being published in the Middle East, and it is also the biggest one ever produced, at 500 pages. To mark this important moment, the cover features three Arabian powerhouse women representing Arabia on the world stage: accessory designer Amina Muaddi, actor Nadine Nassib Njeim, and beauty mogul Huda Kattan. Together, they are a powerful symbol of the modern Arab woman, shattering stereotypes of the submissiveness of the past: they are strong, striking, entrepreneurial, and in charge.
The theme of Arabian women taking the region global runs throughout the magazine, as this special anniversary edition sets out to amplify their ever-increasing reach and influence around the world. At the head of the most in-demand makeup brand in the world, Huda Kattan shares her incredible story of launching faux lashes from her kitchen with a US $6,000 loan from her sister to today running a record-breaking beauty empire. Sharp, candid, and empowering, Kattan talks about the discrimination and alienation she felt growing up Arab in the US, moving to Dubai and promptly getting fired in her first job, and the complexities around running a global brand with your family. “As you get popular and people start to criticize you, you really go deep inside and start questioning yourself, going through peaks and valleys of extreme anxiety. Today, I’m not ashamed that I don’t have it all together. I am a hot mess some days… Actually, I’m a hot mess almost every day – and I don’t have it all figured out. It’s OK.”
Amina Muaddi also knows about feeling the pressure of success – and still excelling. As the most sought-after shoe designer in the world, she is busy building her own empire – or, as she says, “I see it more like a universe.” Her distinctive shoes are seen on every celebrity from the Kardashians to Rihanna, yet Muaddi propels herself forward with instinct. Sitting down in Paris, she opens up about personal losses in her life – including the loss of her friend Virgil Abloh – and surrounding herself with a close-knit group of confidants. “God tests you for a reason and that’s my outlook on life. I go from zero to a hundred very quickly, but I don’t hold grudges. I’m fiery and passionate. I’ve surrounded myself with people who genuinely love me and that’s happiness.”
For Lebanese actor Nadine Nassib Njeim, poise and confidence come naturally. A potent symbol of female force in the region, Njeim believes success is about setting goals, working hard, and challenging yourself – and always staying positive. In her interview, Njeim also revisits the painful Beirut explosion, and how the tragic event changed her, not holding on to small things anymore and valuing what is really important. “Positivity proves that life will remain beautiful and will go on, regardless of the difficulties a person is going through.” The superstar also reveals the price she has paid for fame: “The worst part of being Nadine Njeim is losing your private life, because being famous and successful – the price is too high.” She reveals that while she won’t be on screens this Ramadan season, she is preparing to launch her much-anticipated cosmetics brand.

As always, Vogue Arabia is at the forefront of championing female voices. The anniversary issue also features conservationist Dame Jane Goodall in conversation with sustainability editor-at-large Livia Firth, talking about why there are still reasons to hope in a world filled with uncertainty. “Humanity is at the start of a long, very dark, and dangerous tunnel and right at the end there is a little star shining… that’s hope – but it’s fundamental that we realize that hope is about action, not just wishful thinking.” In another inspiring feature, lifelong friends Farida Khelfa and Carla Bruni model the latest couture, while French actor Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu – the iconic Emily in Paris villain – further defies age conventions by showcasing the season’s most striking looks. All three discuss life, love, and getting older, and why they feel more confident and powerful than ever. “When you have a similar soul, that’s how you connect. We come from different places, but she is my sister,” Khelfa says about Bruni.

The March issue also shines a spotlight on the new Saudi musicians to listen to now, while model and social entrepreneur Elisa Sednaoui Dellal finally finds her way home to Egypt after two years of a pandemic-enforced separation, in a moving feature where she visits, for the first time ever, one of her architect father’s most personal projects. Reconnecting with her past and future, Sednaoui Dellal shares, “What makes me Egyptian is my love for life and human connection.” The edition also salutes Aquazzura on its 10th year in a special shoot with Princess Maria-Olympia of Greece and Denmark, and gets a fascinating look at the extraordinary works His Highness Sheikh Hamad bin Abdullah Al Thani is lending to the Hôtel de la Marine in Paris – The Al Thani Collection includes Islamic works highlighting the art of Ottoman Turkey, Safavid Iran, and Mughal India, showing the sophistication of painting, metal and woodwork, ceramic, and hardstone-carving from a rich and revered culture. This being the fifth anniversary issue, the pages also feature celebratory stories about fashion, entrepreneurs, rising stars, and the region’s biggest talents.

Amina Muaddi Has Found an Edgy New Version of the Coveted Black Cut-Out Dress

Amina Muaddi Has Found an Edgy New Version of the Coveted Black Cut-Out Dress

Photo: Instagram.com/aminamuaddi
Trust Amina Muaddi to put her spin on the season’s most coveted style of dress. The Jordanian-Romanian footwear designer recently wore a sultry cut-out piece for a night-out, cementing its place as the ideal party number before party season has even taken off.
Made popular by brands Monôt and Nensi Dojaka, dresses and separates of this kind have been favored by Kylie Jenner, Bella Hadid, Dua Lipa, and more often are crafted with one type of fabric. Muaddi’s black dress, however, came with two contrasting bases. Picked from Courrèges’ Spring/Summer 2022 Ready-to-Wear collection, the piece featured a glossy vinyl halter bandeau with a sternum cutout, and below it, a matte ribbed knit material that started just below the chest and was stretchy enough to flatter her curves while having two slits on either side.

The designer paired the daring dress with black strappy, pointed-toe heels with rock studs from her eponymous label, and kept accessories to a minimum with a pair of spiky earrings and dainty bracelets. Complementing the outfit, Muaddi chose to wear her hair slicked back in a glam ponytail and added drama with black smoky eyes.

A fan of looks that have people talking, Muaddi wore another head-to-toe black look during couture week. In a throwback post shared on her Instagram, the designer can be seen wearing a vinyl hooded coat dress by Alexandre Vauthier, paired with stiletto boots from her own brand.

Being the founder of her eponymous footwear label, Amina Muaddi always brings her sartorial A-game to fashion weeks. As the menswear leg of the fashion week took off in Paris, calling for layered ensembles that were borderline masculine, the Jordanian-Romanian designer delivered just that while putting her own spin on each look.
Muaddi shared one of her first ensembles on Instagram when she attended Bianca Saunders’ first runway show, captioning the outfit photos, “My type of menswear”. The designer was dressed in a brown and off-white checkered jumpsuit from the London-based brand, unbuttoned at the top to allow a black bralette to peek through. Paired with presumably her own pointed-toe heels, a chainlink choker, and geometrical hoops, the belted jumpsuit was layered with a cream-colored faux fur coat.
The designer’s next look was a particularly meaningful one. To attend friend and late designer Virgil Abloh‘s final show for Louis Vuitton, Muaddi chose a black, sportier ensemble from the French fashion house. The hooded jacket featured white panels with hints of neon green, a zip-up face covering, and an industrial buckled belt cinching it at the waist before it opened at the bottom for a dress with a voluminous hem to show through. “The last @louisvuitton show from the man who continues to make us dream from Heaven,” she captioned her outfit photos. “Forever ever @virgilabloh. Your most beautiful collection yet, I was in awe the whole time. We love you so much. Proudly wearing @louisvuitton by @virgilabloh. Just like I did at your 1st show.”
For the Dior Fall 2022 couture show, Muaddi channeled her bold side and opted for a strapless outfit with two-toned leopard prints from the maison. She paired the short look with tights, the Amina Muaddi Yigit Boot, and a mini Dior Lady bag. As the couture week has only just started, we are sure to see more noteworthy looks from the designer. Take a look at all of them below and make sure to check back for more.
