DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT Zuhair Murad

Designer to the stars, Zuhair is one of my ultimate favourites. The Lebanese designer has been sketching works of art since he was only ten. His inspiration comes from Grecian and Egyptian goddesses with his own vision of the modern powerful lady. He has a way with simple fabrics as he makes the ordinary, extraordinary. He is well known for silk and chiffon fabrics with bead, sequin or embroider detailing. Not many people know but he has his own range of shoes and handbags within his growing brand.

What Zuhair has done is made a Haute Couture and a Ready-to-wear collection. Although I feel his Haute Couture line is simple and elegant enough to wear to a cocktail party or an important event. Zuhair is well known for his Bridal collection, you can find it in Klienfeld in New York City or his Original boutique in Paris, France.

ZUHAIR MURAD BRIDAL FALL/WINTER 2014-2015 RUNWAY

 
Zuhair has done it once again this season. He used a black, white, jade and crimson colour pallet. We saw a lot of asymmetrical lines, geometric lines, high slits and strong shoulders with perfect tailoring. Metallic accessories are his go to, we saw a lot of belting and simple pumps on the runway this season.

MODEL SPOTLIGHT Alessandra Ambrosio

 
After the Victoria Secret Fashion Show I felt I should shine the spotlight on the beautiful Alessandra Corine Ambr√≥sio. This angel was born on 11 April 1981 in a town called Erechim, south of Rio Grande do sul, in Brazil.

 
At the age of 11 she had plastic surgery to pin her ears back due to her insecurities about her “large” ears, it later had complications where she made the decision to never go under the knife again. I salute her for her natural beauty, it’s the best kind.
 
 


She started her career in 1996 and has been climbing the ladder ever since. Ambrosio has been seen on the runways of Dior, Chanel, Armani and Ralph Lauren just to name a few.in 2012 she was listed on the Forbes top- earning models at no.6 earning a whopping $6.6 million in a year.
 
In 2004 she joined the VS angels where she became the first ambassador for their PINK line. A year later she walked their famous runway in classy style only as she does best. Since then she has walked their runways donning two fantasy bras and many awesome outfits and magical wings. In 2012 she wore her first fantasy bra and last year was the first time VS had two fantasy bras where Ambrosio and Adriana Lima were chosen.
 

 

 
Behind this public career path she found her soul-mate, businessman, Jamie Mazur in 2008. Alessandra and fiancé have two beautiful children, Anja (2008) and Noah (2012). Anja is a mini-me version of Alessandra, often found trending on the streets together.

 
Recently she has become a spokesperson for National Multiple Sclerosis Society. She continues to surprise us with her talents as she started branching off into fashion design and has her own line of amazing clothes called Ale by Alessandra. Keep an eye on this young lady as she has a few ideas up her sleeves.
