Since starting his design career in 2011, Rami Kadi has become one of the best known Lebanese designers to represent the region on a global scale. With his dazzling creations becoming public event go-tos, he has dressed multiple models, actors, and A-list stars walking the red carpet. Think Tunisian actor Dorra Zarrouk‘s iconic pale bedazzled dress at the Cannes film festival this year, or Aishwarya Rai Bachchan‘s crystallized off-shoulder number at the 71st edition of the festival, with an interesting amalgamation of sharp-fit structures and flows.
Who can forget the time Lebanese singer Myriam Fares was in Dubai at a royal wedding donning a pink, floral embellished, off-the-shoulder gown with a voluminous overskirt signed Rami Kadi from his May Blossom capsule collection? Or the Oscars 2019 afterparty when Kendall Jenner stepped out in what might be her boldest look, wearing a barely-there gown for the occasion? Kadi, the brainchild behind the daring creation, did not disappoint, with a cut-out halterneck and sky-high slits on either side, making it one of the best looks of the night. The glittering number had first appeared on the designer’s last Spring 2019 couture collection.
The UNEP Goodwill ambassador also counts the likes of Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez as fans in his ever-growing list of VIP clientele and has marked 10 impressive years in couture. In celebration of his birthday today (August 16), we round up his best celebrity looks.
