It’s not the first time Queen Bey has been seen sporting creations by some of the regions most loved Arab designers, and she’s just turned heads once again in a sequined creation by Kuwaiti designer, Yousef Al Jasmi.
The star responsible for hits like Crazy In Love and Formation, graced Tyler Perry Studios’ Grand Opening Gala in a floor length, gold sequined figure hugging gown, with a high neckline and full length sleeve and paired the dress with a red lip, silver rings and diamond encrusted earrings, complete with her hair in a long braid.
Happy Sunday. Congratulations to Tyler Perry on the opening of his studios. I could feel our ancestors’ presence. Surrounded by my heroes, I watched Denzel, Queen Oprah, Spike, Whoopi, Sir Poitier, Will, Halle , Dame Cicely and our angels John Singleton and Diahann Carroll honored. The Armand de Brignac crashed against each soundstage as fireworks lit up the sky. Generations of blood, sweat and tears, success, excellence and brilliance. It makes me so proud, so full, I could not stop crying. Thank you my Virgo brother for so much love and passion put into every detail. My prayer today is that you will take it all in. You inspire me to dream even bigger.
Known for also dressing the likes of Sofia Richie, Lady GaGa, Cardi B and Paris Hilton, Al Jasmi is known for his signature love of all things sparkly, including crystals and sequins in figure hugging silhouettes and first broke out onto the fashion scene when he launched his label in 2007.
Styled by Beyonce’s stylist, Zerina Akers, who was also responsible for the international superstar’s looks on her 2016 Lemonade visual album, the hit-maker first rocked a Yousef Al Jasmi creation in her “Sorry” music video in a black Swarovski-detailed bodysuit. Other Arab designers Beyonce has been spotted in, include, Lebanese label Jean Louis Sabaji, Elie Saab, Reem Acra, Zuhair Murad, Donia Allegue, and Okhtein.
