No stranger to Lebanese designs—she's been photographed in several gowns by Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad—this time around, Kirsten tried out someone else. Meet Reem Acra, internationally renowned designer originally from Beirut. Now remember that name.
This has been a huge year for Beirut-based Zuhair Murad, who's already dressed his fair share of celebrities—including Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Beyoncé, Kirsten Stewart, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, Katy Perry and much more. And when you dress Catherine Zeta-Jones, you
know you've hit it big. My favorite dress of the night—by far.
Amy's princess charm (the earrings and bracelet) is brought to you by Mouawad, an international gem giant that was founded in 1891 by David Mouawad in Beirut. It's now headquartered in Switzerland and run by Fred Mouawad and Pascal Mouawad.
We all know Sandra Bullock can do no wrong. And neither can Elie Saab—who needs no introduction. So together, this spells perfect.
I've never heard of Alicia Vikander. But she's in Elie Saab, which makes her worthy of my consideration. Flawless.
Now, no list is complete without at least one train-wreck. And the crown this year goes to up-and-coming Lebanese designer Rani Zakhem, who designed this atrocity of a creation. I guess we can't win them all....
We all love watching the Oscars. The speeches, the laughs, the interviews and above all—the fashion.
And this year, the fashion was half Lebanese. That's right folks—we're slowly taking Hollywood by storm, and anjad, it has never looked better. Check out some of our favorite designs from yesterday's Academy Awards, and see why the Lebanese make everything more awesome.
