DUBAI: Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio is the latest star to step out in an Arab design.
This week, the model wore a lime-draped jersey gown with cut-out detailing at the waist by Lebanese couturier Zuhair Murad to a holiday brunch in Mexico.
The thigh-skimming dress, from the designer’s Resort 2023 collection, is asymmetric and features a longer train on one side.
The Victoria’s Secret model accessorized her look with gold chain earrings and matching rings. Her hair was tied up in a messy yet chic bun.
For her shoes, she opted for a pair of transparent mules with a silver strap by Italian luxury footwear label Alevì Milano.
Ambrosio has been having a busy month hopping from one event to the other. The model also attended the Baby2Baby Gala 2022 earlier this week.
It was a celebrity-filled event that helps raise funds for the Baby2Baby non-profit organization, which provides resources for children who are living in poverty.
For the gala, the Brazilian beauty wore a fully sequined rose gold dress by Filipino French fashion designer Monique Lhuillier.
“What a beautiful and inspirational night!! Congratulations @baby2baby for all the hard work you do for children in need around the country and in our community,” she wrote after the gala.
Mexico’s event was not the first time Ambrosio has championed an Arab designer, however.
Earlier this year, she attended the Women in Cinema event, hosted by the Red Sea International Film Festival at the 75th Cannes Film Festival, wearing a gown by Lebanese designer Elie Saab.
The supermodel wore a sweeping fairy tale-worthy nude mesh gown adorned with organza bougainvillea and silver embellished straps as she walked the black carpet.
The floral-embellished creation was plucked from Saab’s spring 2022 couture collection, which he showcased in Paris in January at his first physical show in two-years.
Ambrosio also previously showed her support for Murad and for Beirut in 2020, when she joined the designer’s initiative to help people in Lebanon after the Aug. 4 explosion that ripped through Beirut’s port area, killing hundreds and leaving 300,000 people homeless.
