This Lebanese Footwear Designer Has Found a Fan in Megan Fox
While Megan Fox’s looks have been making headlines with her recent appearances, flying under the radar is her newfound love for a regional designer. On many occasions now, the actor has been spotted completing her bold looks with heels from Lebanese shoemaker Andrea Wazen‘s eponymous label.
This week, the Transformers star was spotted donning the black Denver heel by the Beirut-based brand, paired with a faux-leather cropped blazer, and boyfriend jeans. Speaking to Vogue Arabia previously, designer Wazen revealed that the Denver heel might seem simple, but is complicated to make. “You see fabric and tulle, but it takes hours of work,” she said.
At the Revolve Gallery event in New York City, the 35-year-old sported a pair of Andrea Wazen’s Dassy Sunset PVC pumps, elevating her look with its golden straps. Clear pumps with a pop of color have become popular amongst celebrities, and Fox joined in on the trend with her own take. In a mirror selfie posted to her Instagram, she was seen in a green cropped jacket and mini skirt co-ord, with a pair of transparent pumps with green straps from the brand.

The Lebanese shoe designer believes that comfort must precede glamour and identity. “This is why I decided to use fabrics instead of leather. Soft and flexible textiles are so much more lightweight,” she says. This is just one of the attributes that have lead stars including Beyoncé, Dua Lipa, Khloe Kardashian, Lucy Hale, Kylie Jenner, and Hailey Bieber to step out in Wazen’s creations.
After working at Rupert Sanderson and Christian Louboutin, and honing her craft at Paris’s Istituto Marangoni, and Central Saint Martins in London, the Beirut-raised designer decided to launch her eponymous brand. Coming from a family of architects, Wazen has always had an eye for symmetry and design instilled in her DNA.
