Keyshia Ka’oir Chose This Lebanese Couturier to Design Her 100 Pound Birthday Dress

Keyshia Ka’oir celebrated her birthday yesterday, and made sure that the spotlight was on her for her special day. The entrepreneur stepped out in Miami with her husband rapper Gucci Mane, donning an extravagant, red hot dress from Lebanese couturier to the stars Charbel Zoe. The strapless gown was encrusted with over one million red Swarovski crystals and weighed about 100 pounds. She amplified the jaw-dropping design by way of diamond jewelry and matching burgundy-colored eyeshadow. The birthday girl coordinated her look with her husband, who wore a sparkling red, custom Dolce & Gabbana suit that was flown in from Paris for the occasion. As for her birthday gift? Gucci Mane presented his wife with a red Rolls Royce wrapped in a celebratory bow that matched her evening gown, naturally.

Ka’oir has a longstanding relationship with the Lebanese designer. In fact, for her October 2017 wedding to Gucci Mane (born Radric Davis), the newly-minted 34-year-old said “I do” in an extravagant, US $40,000, custom couture gown from Charbel Zoe that was hand-encrusted with millions of micro embellishments and feathers. Then after exchanging vows, the bride slipped into a sparkling crystal-embellished dress by Kuwaiti couturier Yousef Aljasmi for the reception. However, her nuptials weren’t the first time that Ka’oir chose a design from the Los Angeles-based couturier. For the 2017 MTV Video Awards, the fitness guru stepped out on the red carpet donning a form-fitting Charbel Zoe creation.

Known for his crystal-encrusted dresses, body-baring gowns, and beaded bodysuits, Charbel Zoe’s couture collections and custom made creations have also found fans in the likes of Haifa Wehbe, Jennifer Lopez, and Beyoncé, who wore one of the label’s custom-made body suits for the Formation World Tour. With ateliers in Beirut and Kuwait, and a showroom in Los Angeles, the designer creates custom wedding gowns on a bespoke client basis.
