Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad is cherished for his glamorous show stopping creations; until recently he was a well kept red carpet secret. Think seductive and sexy, Murad is for the woman who demands the spotlight "I love to see a women's curves", he said. His celebrity fans include Kirsten Stewart who famously wore Zuhair Murad to her first public appearance in Toronto at the premiere of 'On The Road' then again at the Twilight premiere after being reunited with Robert Pattinson. In my opinion she has never looked better, this daring new side that she channeled was a coming of age for the starlet. The revealing outfit featured a delicate embroidered top with an open back and fully sequinned trousers with lace panels, finishing her look with killer Louboutin heels and wavy tresses.
Jennifer Lopez, at the Golden Globes, was the ideal platform for the peacock piece of this 'golden age' collection. J-Lo sizzled in this delicate lace embroidered gown with tonal accessories and make up keeping the dress centre stage.
My personal favourite from this collection is the stunning one shoulder embellished gown, as worn by Amaia Salamanca, this bead covered creation with it's high front split is certainly not for the faint hearted.
Get red carpet ready with an opulent after dark option that will last you a lifetime!
