DUBAI: British actress Jameela Jamil was spotted in New York wearing not one but two Middle Eastern designs recently.
“The Good Place” actress made appearances on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” and “The Daily Show” hosted by Trevor Noah wearing designs by Lebanese talent Rami Kadi and designer-to-the-stars Elie Saab respectively.
Jamil spoke to host Jimmy Fallon last week while wearing a tropical-inspired multi-colored dress covered in 3-D floral embellishments and complete with a one-shouldered neckline.
The fashion house calls the decadent dress “The Temple of Flora” gown and it’s certainly worthy of its grand name, with a rainbow of delicate beadwork nestled among feathery flowers covering the over-the-top number.
It seems Jamil was in the mood to turn heads while in New York, as her outfit of choice for her appearance on “The Daily Show” was no less impressive.
While speaking to host Trevor Noah, Jamil opted for a flower-print gown with an off-the-shoulder neckline and tulip-like puffed sleeves.
She paired the colorful, ankle-length dress with white heels and three-tiered yellow earrings.
The actress was styled by Hollywood fashion guru Law Roach, who dubs himself an “Image Architect” and regularly works with the likes of Zendaya, Gwen Stefani and Ariana Grande.
While on “The Daily Show,” Jamil discussed the final season of “The Good Place,” embracing body positivity and spearheading a ban on diet ads targeting minors on social media.
The star, who was born to a Pakistani mother and an Indian father in London, has long taken an outspoken stance against photoshopping and airbrushing in the fashion and entertainment industries and even founded the “I Weigh” movement in 2018 by launching an Instagram account where she shares inspiring images sent in by followers detailing their accomplishments and positive characteristics, rather than what they weigh.
“It’s not that I’m starting to love everything about myself. I’m starting to not care about the things that don’t matter and I do care about the things that do matter, like what kind of a friend I am, what kind of a colleague I am, what I am contributing to the world and society and how I make other people around me feel,” Jamil said in the released statement when she was announced as one of the newest members of a body positivity campaign by American Eagle Outfitters’ sub-brand, Aerie, in February.
