10 Times International Celebrities Walked the Red Carpet in Arab Designers in 2021

Over the years, we’ve witnessed many Arab designers become the go-to for international celebrities, especially when it comes to red carpet events. Celebrities such as the Queen herself—Beyoncé—has built such a reputation with Arab designers, be it while attending formal ceremonies, or while lounging on vacation with husband Jay-Z. Jennifer Lopez is also among the stars who have shown their appreciation for the artistry of Arab designers time after time, and has been seen dressed in Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad often.

In 2021, we saw even more Arab designers emerging on the global platform, and being spotted on a wide range of  A-List celebrities. Among the many stars who favored talent from the region was American singer Cardi B, who donned a beautiful purple velvet dress with feather detailing and crystal embellishment from Jean- Louis Sabaji Fall 2021 couture for the 2021 American Music Awards.

And that’s not where the list ends. What better way to show up at a friend’s wedding than in a gorgeous neon blue silk chiffon couture number from Rami Kadi? That’s exactly what singer Bebe Rexha did for Paris Hilton’s big day, and in addition to that,  Grammy winner Taylor Swift looked incredible on The Tonight Show in a Zuhair Murad Resort 2022 RTW look: an ivory mod-style dress with gold bead trim. Just like Swift, model Jasmine Tookes was also seen in a Zuhair Murad creation this year. Her pick: a baby blue one-shoulder chiffon gown with floral appliqué.

Christina Aguilera was also seen wearing a look from an Arab designer this year, dazzling in a red couture dress from Yousef al Jasmi, and one of J.Lo’s biggest fashion moments of the year had to be when she stepped out in Los Angeles alongside Ben Affleck, wearing a pastel mousseline draped gown with a matching velvet bow belt from the Elie Saab Haute Couture Fall winter 2021/2022 collection. The 52-year-old icon also took over trending charts when she appeared at the Venice Film Festival in a sculpted ivory dress with cheeky ruffles and a Swarovski-studded neckline from Georges Hobeika. Likewise, Lady Gaga spotlighted her love for Hobeika in custom-made dress at the ‘One Last Time’ concert at Radio City Music Hall.

In what is shaping up to be a successful week for Taylor Swift, the Grammy-winner recently gave a nod to Arab designers. Appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote Red, a re-recording of her 2012 album, Swift opted for a look created by Zuhair Murad.

The 31-year-old singer chose an ivory mini-dress with a high neck, short sleeves, and oversized pockets from the Lebanese couturier’s Resort 2022 collection. The retro number, in keeping with Swift’s personal style, featured gold beaded trims on the neckline and sleeves, which the singer matched with the Christian Louboutin So Kate pumps and hoops in the same color. The ‘Shake it Off’ singer complemented her ensemble with a textured ponytail with bangs framing her face and her signature fail-proof red lip and eyeliner.
This is not the first time the star has been spotted in a Zuhair Murad creation, as the duo’s partnership can be traced back to nearly 10 years ago. On many occasions, particularly, award shows, the singer has walked the red carpet in the Beirut and Paris-based designer’s dazzling pieces. Who can forget the stunning gold dress she wore to the Grammys in 2012 when she took home three awards?
Below, take a look at all the times Swift was spotted wearing Zuhair Murad.

Swift is currently re-recording her albums after losing the masters to music manager Scooter Braun who acquired her previous label Big Machine Records. Earlier this year, the singer re-released another one of her albums, Fearless.

Swifties, get those phones out: Taylor Swift officially joined TikTok on Monday. The singer’s first-ever post on the app sees her lip-synching to Dave’s “Screwface Capital” while re-creating iconic fashion looks from some of her nine album releases. For her 2020 album Folklore, for instance, she sports a white, off-the-shoulder dress that totally fits into the cottagecore theme. For 2012’s Red? She wears a sleek black turtleneck and, yes, a bold red lip. But it’s her sunny yellow floral dress from Reformation, the “Joyce” dress, that harkens back to her 2008 Fearless days that currently has the Internet abuzz—in fact, it instantly sold out after she wore it.

Lots going on at the moment: Red (my version) vinyl is up for presale on my site and oh I’m on tiktok now let the games begin 😺 #SwiftTok

Soon after Swift wore the dress, which retails for US $218, it swiftly sold out in all sizes—so good luck getting your hands on it. The good news, however, is that it’s still available in other colorways, such as a solid off-white or in a cherry print. This isn’t the first time a fashion or beauty item has gone viral on TikTok, but with a megawatt star like Swift wearing it on top of that, the summery dress may just become the most hard-to-get item of the season. Maybe you’ll be able to score it once fall arrives—then you can pair it with a Swift-style cardigan.
