Mélanie Laurent In Zuhair Murad Couture – ‘Inside Out’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Mélanie Laurent In Zuhair Murad Couture - 'Inside Out' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Mélanie Laurent attended the ‘Inside Out’ premiere during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Monday (May 18) in Cannes, France.

The French actress wore a sultry Zuhair Murad Spring 2015 Couture gold beaded gown, which I was able to distinguish via the designer’s signature gold leaf belt.

The gown does all the talking, as it should.

I can imagine it took Melanie all of 5 minutes to get ready, and yet the result is quite breath-taking. Perhaps I’m not really to give up on beaded gowns just yet.

Li Bingbing In Zuhair Murad Couture – ‘The Sea Of Trees’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Li Bingbing In Zuhair Murad Couture - 'The Sea Of Trees' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Li Bingbing was also in attendance at the premiere of ‘The Sea of Trees’, hosted during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival on Saturday (May 16) in Cannes, France.

Her baby-blue Zuhair Murad Spring 2015 Couture intricately embellished gown had all the makings of a fairytale with its enchanting embroidery, alluring silhouette, and the sweeping beauty of the half-ballgown skirt and train.

It’s a striking improvement from the less impressive looks we’ve seen by Zuhair Murad recently, so I can more easily embrace this designer entrance from the Chinese actress.

The Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ clutch was a lovely addition, but the statement blue earrings were rendered a bit unnecessary given the bejeweled dress.

You may remember this gown for being on the red carpet wish list for Miranda Lambert.

Portia de Rossi In Zuhair Murad Couture – The Paley Center For Media Presents An Evening With The Cast Of ‘Scandal’

Portia de Rossi In Zuhair Murad Couture - The Paley Center For Media Presents An Evening With The Cast Of 'Scandal'

Portia de Rossi attended The Paley Center for Media’s special evening with the cast of ‘Scandal’ on Thursday (May 14) in New York City.

For the occasion, she wore an intriguing skirt, top and jacket look from the Zuhair Murad Fall 2014 Couture collection. Side button detailing on the long open skirt and sea-kelp esque appliqués on the white satin jacket and mesh shirt give a whole new twist to the concept of a power suit.

Portia also chose to wear some extensions on the cropped ‘do she’s been rocking, and unfortunately, I feel like this was the wrong night to do so. Such a detailed fashion look needs to be the focus, and the hair muddles up what could have been a strong look, and almost hides the popped collar.

I just know that this look is going to be quite polarizing in the comments, but I think with the right hair styling on her normally fierce pixie, she could have rocked this look enough to win anyone over.

Michelle Rodriguez In Zuhair Murad – ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Michelle Rodriguez In Zuhair Murad -  'Mad Max Fury Road' Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Michelle Rodriguez attended the ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ premiere during the 2015 Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 14) in Cannes, France.

The actress’s red carpet style has never been highly regarded, but this is bad on so many levels.

The visible illusion line is the least of this gown’s issues; it just feels so tacky and dated.

I think my love affair with Zuhair Murad has perhaps run its course as lately it’s been bad gown after tacky jumpsuit, again and again.

Hopefully someone will wear a look from his Spring 2015 Couture soon collection and reignite my love.

Jennifer Lopez In Zuhair Murad – American Idol Grand Finale Show

Jennifer Lopez In Zuhair Murad - American Idol Grand Finale Show

Jennifer Lopez attended the ‘American Idol’ XIV Grand Finale show at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California on Wednesday (May 13).

Another day, another ensemble from her favoured designer of the moment, Zuhair Murad.

And, yes, another sheer gown.

She walked on the dark side in this sheer black lace paneled bodysuit with matching evening skirt from the Fall 2015 collection, paired with Brian Atwood heels.

Despite the transparency of the look, it had a sense of sombre heaviness that desperately needed a pick-me-up.
