On Sunday, Jennifer Lopez attended the Global Citizen Vax Live Concert wearing not one but two looks by Arab designers. The concert took place at California’s SoFi stadium, where Lopez showed up in a sparkling silver and white Elie Saab jumpsuit. Cinched at the waist with a belt, the jumpsuit featured a plunging neckline.
Later, for her highly-awaited performance, the star switched into three different looks, starting with one by Lebanese couturier Zuhair Murad. Lopez took the stage in a dusty pink embellished pantsuit with fringes and feathers for sleeves that grazed the floor. She was joined by her mother for a heartwarming moment as they performed Neil Diamonds’ song, “Sweet Caroline.”
Lopez and Murad go way back. In a previous interview with Vogue Arabia, the designer shared how he created the dress for the songstress’ 2010 Met Gala appearance. “One of my proudest red carpet moments was Jennifer Lopez at the 2010 Met Gala,” Murad had said nostalgically. “We worked on the dress for more than 1,000 hours, from the design to the hand-embroidery and the tailoring. Of course, the time spent on the gown was worth it, as Jennifer matched every second of its glory that night.”
Besides Lopez and Gomez, many renowned names participated in the event, including US president Joe Biden, vice president Kamala Harris, alongside J Balvin, H.E.R., and Eddie Vedder.
The star studded concert named Vax Live: The Concert to Reunite the World was hosted by Selena Gomez and aimed to raise money for Covid-19 vaccines. It campaigned for fair and equal access to vaccines for everyone, urging nations to donate any excess doses to provide financial support to the Covid Vaccines Global Access (COVAX). The concert was pre-taped on Sunday in front of a live audience of fully vaccinated front-line healthcare and essential workers. The show will later be broadcasted on ABC, ABC News Live, CBS, Youtube, iHeartMedia radio stations, and the iHearRadio app on May 8.
