(Zuhair Murad Fall/Winter 10/11)
These days, when talking about high designer fashion, common names like Marc Jacobs, Balenciaga, Valentino, Chanel and Vera Wang are usually the ones to come up first. But it's the underrated designers, the new souls that are slowly captivating the heart of fashion in society now. One designer, Zuhair Murad, has definitely made his statement and gone to the top of my list, of designers to watch out for.
Zuhair Murad is a lebanese designer. His opulent creations are by far among the most beautiful pieces of fashion out there, mirroring Egyptian and Grecian goddesses with his use of laces, sequins, silk and other luxurious fabrics. But Murad is also a genius when it comes to adding a modern variation to this pure timeless look.
A personal favorite dress of mine, is one that Blake Lively wore on an episode of Gossip Girl (picture right above). I just love how intricate and elegant the lace and fabric are interwoven. It's a pewter gray long sleeve lace gown with silk draped in the front and sheer skirt. The dress is a piece of art on it's own. Not to mention Blake Lively looks lovely as ever.

Check out his collections for Fall/Winter 10/11, Spring/Summer 10/11 and Fall/Winter 11/12. I guarantee you, among the feathers, sequins, lace, tulle and studs, that they won't fall short of your expectations.
