Georgia Fowler stuns in Zuhair Murad gown

  • The designer’s official Instagram account posted the snap with a gushing caption that read: “The gorgeous @georgiafowler strikes again in Zuhair Murad.”
  • Fowler is the youngest daughter of Australian golfer Peter Fowler and appeared in the music video for Kygo and Selena Gomez's “It Ain't Me” in 2017.

DUBAI: New Zealand-born model Georgia Fowler just appeared on the cover of Harper's Bazaar Australia wearing a dress by none other than Lebanese powerhouse designer Zuhair Murad.
The model, magazine and the designer all shared an image of the gorgeous cover page, with Fowler saying, “Growing up, I wished to be in the pages of this glossy magazine, but to be on the cover — and for the third time — has me bouncing off the walls with glee. Thank you for your ongoing support, @bazaaraustralia.”
Meanwhile, the designer’s official Instagram account posted the snap with a gushing caption that read: “The gorgeous @georgiafowler strikes again in Zuhair Murad.”
In the shot, Fowler dons a gown that was unveiled as part of Murad’s Spring/Summer 2018 Haute Couture collection fashion show in Paris in January. The whimsical, floor-length dress features a daring plunging neckline and boasts a voluminous A-line skirt, all of which is belted with a thin black strap at the waist. The nude tulle is appliqued with black, white and red flowers and cacti over an ever-so-slightly sheer beige slip.
Fowler’s chestnut hair cascades down toward her shoulders in loose, beach-style waves and her make-up is kept to a sultry minimum. For jewelry, the young model wears nothing except a single thin bracelet.
The 25-year-old model, who was discovered when she was just 12-years-old, had her big break in 2012 when she walked in a Chanel show in Versailles. She went on to make international runway appearances for the likes of Victoria’s Secret, Armani, Phillip Plein and Elie Saab, among a raft of other major players in the global fashion industry.
Fowler has also appeared in the hallowed pages of Vogue Italia, Vogue France, Vogue Mexico, Elle magazine and various other fashion publications around the world.
In February, she told British Vogue that her favorite part about being a model is “the ability to morph into any character you’ve always wanted to be. I always find it quite fun. It’s being able to do so much more than just being an image.”
Her success as a model isn’t her only claim to fame, however. In fact, Fowler is the youngest daughter of Australian golfer Peter Fowler and appeared in the music video for Kygo and Selena Gomez's “It Ain't Me” in 2017.
Besides making it big in the world of high-end fashion, it seems that the model has also found time to fall in love — she is reportedly dating US singer Nick Jonas, who shot to fame as part of the Jonas Brothers boy band in the noughties.

Destiny’s designers: Kelly Rowland, Beyoncé don Arab gowns at charity event

DUBAI: Kelly Rowland and Beyoncé both chose Middle East-based designers for their trip down the red carpet at a charity event last week.

The superstars attended the City of Hope Gala in Santa Monica, California, wearing floor-length gowns by designers from Kuwait and Lebanon.

For her part, Rowland chose a glittering, rose gold gown by Kuwaiti designer Yousef Al-Jasmi, with a high collar and slit at the back. She accented the figure-hugging dress with a pair of dazzling earrings and slicked-back hair.

Meanwhile, Beyoncé chose a black velvet jacket by Lebanese label Elie Saab. The belted piece featured embellishments on the shoulder and a plunging neckline and is from the label’s Autumn/Winter 2016 collection.

Beyoncé paid homage to a high-profile music executive being honored at a charity event to raise money for cancer research, The Associated Press reported.

The singer’s vocals soared as she performed three ballads including her 2009 smash hit “Halo” and “Ava Maria” after saluting the character of Warner/Chappell Music Publishing CEO Jon Platt at the City of Hope gala near Los Angeles on Thursday night. She took the stage following her husband, Jay Z, who presented Platt with the Spirit of Life award during a charity event that raised more than $6 million.

“Most people lead with their ego, but you lead with your heart,” Beyoncé said Platt, who will soon be leaving his position at Warner/Chappell to take on the top role at Sony/ATV, the top publishing company in the music business.

“You have touched so many lives, mine included,” she added.

Jay Z called Platt the “Obama of the music industry.” The music executive is known for signing publishing deals with Jay Z, Usher, Kanye West and Snoop Dogg. His roster of songwriters at Warner/Chappell includes Lil Wayne, Bruno Mars and Timbaland.

Both Beyoncé and Jay Z appeared at the black-tie charity event after the couple wrapped up their On The Run II tour about a week ago.

“I can’t think of anyone more deserving of this award than my brother, Jon Platt,” Jay Z told more than 1,000 attendees. “He’s known as ‘Big Jon’ and he has a beautiful soul.”

City of Hope is a treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases as the Music, Film and Entertainment Industry Group has raised more than $118 million in 45 years. The award is the group’s highest honor recognizing those that have helped further music, film and entertainment.

Previous Spirit of Life award recipients include Quincy Jones, Clive Davis, Irving Azoff and Mo Ostin.

Music mogul Diddy, singer Usher, former NBA player Chauncey Billups and some of Platt’s family members took part in a video dedicated to the music executive. Platt’s oldest son, Jonathan Platt, was diagnosed with diabetes.
