American singer Katy Perry recently showed her love for Arab designers, when she appeared in two show-stopping looks by regional labels SemSem and Monsoori.

Perry, who has recently given birth to her first child, posted a series of images on Instagram this week, of her wearing a SemSem gold, draped, and pleated lamé gown with the caption, “Mother”. The strapless gown features a belted waist and two cascading side panels that elegantly float along with the dress as it moves. The singer completed her look with triangular shaped earrings and wore her blonde hair in subtle yet glamorous waves.

New York-based brand SemSem was founded in 2016 by creative director Abeer Al Otaiba, who drew inspiration for the label from her Egyptian, French, and Emirati heritage; and has become a firm favorite among models Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner, as well as actor Blake Lively and singer Taylor Swift.

Perry also made an appearance at the Unicef Changemaker event in Los Angeles on December 1, where she took the stage to perform one of her latest singles, Only Love. For this occasion, the singer wore a vibrant pink gown by Bahraini label Monsoori. The pink taffeta dress, from the brand’s Spring 2021 collection, featured a plunging neckline, bow-embellished shoulders, and a voluminous tiered skirt.

Perry has recently returned to work duties following the birth of her daughter with her fiancé, British actor Orlando Bloom. Since welcoming daughter Daisy Dove Bloom in August, Perry has frequently shared the realities of motherhood, specifically relating to her post-baby body and her refusal to adhere to “bounce back” to her weight prior to being pregnant.
