Kerry Washington Goes For Zuhair Murad at the Vanity Fair Oscar Afterparty
Kerry Washington isn’t afraid to challenge herself professionally. She’s an acclaimed actress and producer, brand ambassador for Neutrogena, podcast host and activist. Currently she can be seen in several projects such as Unprisoned on Netflix and Shadow Force with Sterling K. Brown and Omar Sy.
Her no-holds barred attitude has been the driving force behind her success. While she may occasionally don a bedazzled decal top or pink kitten heels, she has also carefully honed her on-screen style and personal aesthetic.
Throughout her time in the spotlight, she has collaborated with a range of fashion designers and stylists. However, one name that consistently comes to mind is Lebanese-born couturier Zuhair Murad – who has become a favorite among Hollywood A-listers.
The designer is an expert at modern elegance, having created stunning looks for celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Sofia Vergara, Priyanka Chopra, Najwa Karam and Princess al-Taweel from Saudi Arabia.
Designer Amir Chimera’s work showcases the vibrant heritage of his country, and he is renowned for his stunning bridal couture. From Sofia Vergara’s custom-made gown that took 1,657 hours to create to Priyanka Chopra’s white embellished strapless dress at her first Oscars, his designs have graced awards show stages worldwide.
Though most of his pieces are crafted out of silk, he also designs wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses that boast an eye-catching combination of lace, satin and beading. These creations boast stunning aesthetic appeal.
At the Vanity Fair Oscar afterparty, Kerry Washington donned an outfit from Murad’s latest Egyptian-inspired couture collection. She donned a gold heavily beaded top and skirt set.
She completed her look with matching earrings that she tied with a black ribbon for texture and detail. Additionally, she donned a black belt to complete the figure-hugging gown’s ensemble.
She completed the look with her signature voluminous hair styled in a shaggy bob for the evening. To top it off, she accessorized with an exquisite diamond necklace from DeBeers that shone as she moved around.
Weddings are undoubtedly some of the most special days for women, making them especially desirable to celebrities who choose to celebrate in a dress from Murad’s collection. His latest offerings include an elegant gold gown and cape inspired by Ancient Egypt as well as an eye-catching halter-neck featuring sequins that look like suns.
Murad is renowned for his stunning wedding dresses and trendy ready-to-wear pieces. Some of his pieces have been worn by celebrities such as Nina Dobrev, Christina Aguilera, Wanda Sykes and Jewel.
From classic black and white color schemes to vibrant blue aster hues, the Lebanese-born designer’s latest collection offers stunning options for any special occasion. He even dressed Saniyya Sidney for the 92nd Academy Awards in an off-the-shoulder organza gown from his Spring/Summer 2022 ready-to-wear collection.
