Vanessa Hudgens steps out in UAE label

  • Vanessa Hudgens wore an ensemble by UAE-based designer Madiyah Al-Sharqi
  • Since founding the label in 2012, Al-Sharqi ‘s collections have received international acclaim

DUBAI: US singer and actress Vanessa Hudgens looked glamorous on set of the TV show “So You Think You Can Dance” over the weekend in an ensemble by UAE-based designer Madiyah Al-Sharqi.
Based in the Emirate of Fujairah, which is relatively unknown on the fashion scene compared to its internationally acclaimed sister state of Dubai, the label is making headway on the Hollywood circuit and was even worn by Paris Jackson in June.
For her part, Hudgens looked stunning in a lamé corset with lace-up detailing on the back and a sweetheart neckline. Matching, wide-legged trousers completed the 70s-style look that came in a pretty mix of pastel shades, including lilac, peach, sunny yellow and silver.
“Last night’s look on @danceonfox,” Hudgens, who shot to fame after starring in the hugely popular series of High School Musical films during the noughties, posted on her Instagram account.
With her 29.3 million followers, it could be an advertising win for the Emirati designer’s homegrown brand.
Hudgens worked with celebrity stylist Natalie Saidi to achieve the shimmery look. With a client list that includes Jessica Simpson, Ashlee Simpson, Roselyn Sanchez, Austin Butler, Kerris Dorsey and Carmen Electra, the LA native is a much-sought-after fashion guru in Hollywood and often chooses offbeat, unexpected designers to dress her A-list clients.
“I’m just as happy working with a sweater from H&M to a dynamic Dior gown,” she said on her website. “It’s all about what makes my clients look and feel their best!”
This particular outfit is from the Al-Sharqi’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection, which is available on e-tailers Ounass, By Symphony and the Madiyah Al-Sharqi website. For fans of the look, the corset is currently on sale on the brand’s website, having dropped from $366 to just $89.
Since founding the label in 2012, Al-Sharqi ‘s collections have received international acclaim and have been featured in the likes of Vogue Italia, Vogue Arabia, Harper’s Bazaar Arabia and Grazia.
