Milan Fashion Week Fall 2009: Zuhair Murad

Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad is relatively new to the fashion scene, but has clearly made his mark on the red carpet by dressing celebs such as Miley Cyrus (remember her glittery petal dress at the recent Academy Awards?) and Carrie Underwood. His Fall 2009 collection was filled with grecian influences, draping/ruching techniques, different silhouettes, and various colors such as emerald green, ruby red, and bright orange. The black and white scaly looking dress below reminded me a lot of the Jean Paul Gaultier dress that Oscar winner Marion Cotillard wore to the 2008 Academy Awards. I think it would have been more appropriate for Miley Cyrus to wear this dress rather than the one she wore to the Oscars. It's simple, chic, and fresh, especially for the 16-year old. I also think the nude jewel-toned halter dress is better suited for Miley because it's not over the top, young-looking and girly. Overall, I really enjoyed Zuhair Murad's collection. It incorporated different colors, fine details, and various silhouettes which will flatter any body shape. To view some of Zuhair Murad's pieces, click here.
