Because we could all do with a bit of mid-week romance.

It’s a little quiet on the celebrity fashion front this week – maybe they’re all resting up pre-Coachella – but our appetite for gorgeous gowns hasn’t faded.

You know what’s always in season, though? Wedding gowns. And you know how makes some of our favourites? Zuhair Murad.

This luxury label turned Dubai’s souks into a high-fashion hub
10 young Emirati designers are on their way to Milan…

The Lebanese designer has an absolute knack for fit, embellishment and romance. We thought we’d turn our attention to some of his best work.


Join us as we swoon a little bit.

Lolita Osmanova

zuhair murad

This Russian heiress’s 2017 wedding cost Dhs36.7 million all up, so you know the gown was always going to be a big deal.

How’s that train? When Lady Gaga is performing at your wedding, you can afford to go a little dramatic.

It’s some real fairytale stuff.

Chanel Iman

It’s not hard to make Victoria’s Secret model Chanel Iman look good, but Murad still acquitted himself very well here.

We love that neckline, and the delicate caped sleeves. Dreamy.

Dervla Louli Musgrave

Sometimes a gown is best seen in motion. This long-sleeved, elegant number is so classic.

This haute couture stunner

We’ve been thinking about this since it hit the Paris runway in February. What dreams are made of.

Lara Scandar

Egyptian singer-songwriter Lara Scandar turned to Murad for her October wedding last year. Talk about a princess moment.

Vita Sidorkina 

Russian model Vita Sidorkina also opted for a Murad design for her vows. We love the botanical decorations and the high neck.

Victoria Swarovski 

Yes, that Swarovski. This Austrian TV host and it girl’s Murad wedding gown is the definition of elegance.
