The 92nd Academy Awards, famously known as the Oscars, was held on February 9th, in Los Angeles.
Each year, millions of people wait in anticipation to watch this glamorous ceremony and discover who will receive the highest honors in filmmaking. It is by far the favorite season of movie enthusiasts and fashion critics.
For the celebrities themselves, this is the time to shine out to the best on the red carpet, and these six famous movie stars chose to do so by wearing Lebanese designers.
#1 Sandra Oh
Our most sought-after Lebanese designer Elie Saab dressed up the legendary star Sandra Oh in a glorious couture masterpiece that features huge sleeves, low cut decolletage, and glimmery fabric.
#2 Molly Sims
Zuhair Murad outdid himself again with this royalty looking gown. Molly Sims appeared stunning on the red carpet in this dress of sophisticated top with a plunging neckline and generous satin skirt.
Zouhair Murad again! This Lebanese designer is indeed topping the fashion news this season. Artist, actress, and singer Youssra, who is also a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador, was beyond impressive wearing this Ancient-Egypt-inspired gown from Murad’s recent collection.
A glimmering golden bodice with embroidered sleeves, artful cream skirt, and caped; a vision of Cleopatra!
#4 Jane Fonda
The legendary one and only Jane Fonda, two-time Oscar winner, who’s also famous for her political and outspoken activism, graced the 2020 Oscars with a majestic sequinned ruby-red gown by Elie Saab.
Even though she had worn this dress to the Cannes Film Festival in 2014, she obviously can’t get enough of it and for a good reason. It makes her look glorious!
#5 Lilliana Vazquez
Liliana went for simplicity and sophistication, with a beautiful mermaid gown by Rami Kadi whose name has been shining in the American scenes of fashion and Hollywood.
#6 Carly Steel
Presenter, actress, and producer Carly Steel made an elegant appearance in a couture black gown with gold details, designed for her as well by… Zouhair Murad! That gown made it to the best dresses of the 2020 Oscar.
