We particularly need to take a moment for Jenna Dewan Tatum’s three-piece ensemble.

The bulk of awards season might be behind us (and we’re still thinking about Allison Janney’s Reem Acra Oscars gown), however that doesn’t mean designers have retired from the spotlight for a well-earned break.

In fact, labels from the Middle East shone particularly brightly this week at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.

Which regional designers ruled the red carpet at the Oscars?
Zuhair Murad made not one, but two bridal gowns for this model

The ceremony, held in California on March 11, saw stars such as Rita Ora, Cardi B and Ed Sheeran congregate at The Forum for a night of music and trophies.

Among the looks that caught our eye was one sported by actress and dancer Jenna Dewan Tatum, who wore a combination that’s the very definition of sartorially fierce.

The creation came from none other than Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad, who kitted the star out in a three-piece ensemble from the Spring 2018 Haute Couture collection.

Comprised of an embroidered crop top, embellished jacket and ethereal maxi skirt with a daring split, the outfit scored Tatum a spot on all the best dressed lists.

Also turning to Murad for her red carpet look was Hailey Baldwin, who co-hosted the awards show.

The supermodel donned a shimmering gold jumpsuit from the label’s Spring 2018 collection.

Dripping in beadwork and fringing, the one-piece not only caught the camera’s light perfectly, but looked even better in motion.

Heiress Paris Hilton also represented the labels of the region on the night, wearing a scarlet mini by Lebanese brand Charbel Zoe Couture.

With long sleeves and a full, retro-inspired skirt, the number blended a vintage silhouette with modern-day detailing (the encrusted hearts gave a subtle nod to the show’s name).
