Leslie Mann also turned to the region for a sartorial statement.
It’s a notoriously tricky hue to pull off, but Mary J. Blige made yellow look ever so mellow on the red carpet last night.
The singer-turned-actress donned a sunny floor-length gown at this year’s Producers Guild of America Awards, which were held in California on January 20.
Blige, who’s picking up awards left, right and centre for her turn in drama Mudbound, turned to one of her favourite designers of late for the head-turning ensemble—Elie Saab.
With a flowing cape, touch of lace and statement belt, the Lebanese label ensured Blige stood out on the night.
This isn’t the first time the Family Affair crooner has sported the brand in recent months—the star sported an aquamarine gown from Saab at the Palm Springs International Film Festival Gala earlier this month.
The star, who transitioned into a silver screen icon with her turn in the Netflix movie alongside Carey Mulligan, Garrett Hedlund and Jason Clarke, also picked up a win in Zuhair Murad at November’s Hollywood Film Awards.
Another star turning to Middle Eastern labels at the PGAs was Leslie Mann, who donned a delicate lace number from Reem Acra.
The eclectic piece from Beirut-born designer featured feather-light fabrics and whimsical prints, which came together in a swirl of colour.
With awards season in full swing (and the Oscars coming up in March), we can’t wait to see which Middle Eastern designers continue to dominate the red carpet
