DUBAI: Beyoncé has given another nod to Arab fashion designers with her recently released music video ‘Spirit’ – one of The Lion King tracks – where she was spotted wearing a custom piece by Lebanese-American designer Norma Kamali.

 

 

The fashion-filled music video features the music sensation, along with her dancers, wearing Kamali’s bright-yellow, stretchy dresses that perfectly blended with the desert-themed clip.

Kamali took to Instagram to share her excitement about dressing Beyonce and thanked her team for working on this project.


She wrote to her 62,000 followers, “BEYONCÉ THE LION KING. So happy to be a part of the visuals so beautiful thank you. And to my team Marissa Katia Mario and jimmy for getting it done!!!”

The star has previously shown love to Arab designers by wearing a fierce lioness-themed costume to the Wearable Art Gala in Santa Monica last month, a creation from Lebanese designer Georges Hobeika.

What We Are Reading Today: Alice Adams: Portrait of a Writer by Carol Sklenicka

Alice Adams: Portrait of a Writer captures not just a beloved woman’s life in full, but a crucial span of American history. 

Blake Bailey said in a review for The New York Times: “The disappointments of romance — ‘the great subject’of Adams’s life and work, as Carol Sklenicka writes in her new biography, Alice Adams: Portrait of a Writer — were all the more muddled with her other great subject, family misery. 

“Indeed, Adams’ youth was largely a matter of amassing material for the late-blooming literary career. The end of her dismal marriage to Mark Linenthal coincided with her first published story, Winter Rain, at 32, whereupon she resumed having love affairs for many years.”

Bailey added: “As a writer Adams was often compared to Mary McCarthy, Jane Austen and John Updike, but her own favorite touchstone was F. Scott Fitzgerald, whose work she read again and again. Certainly, Adams’ stories tend to proceed as a series of evocative, loosely ordered set pieces, impressions — or better just call them memories.”
