Hollywood’s leading ladies don Lebanese designs at Oscars
Lady Gaga was all about the voice as she sang highlights from the beloved 1965 movie “The Sound of Music”
Hollywood starlets stunned TV audiences at the 87th Academy Awards, walking the red carpet in an array of gowns and bedecked with twinkling jewelry.
Lebanese favorites Eli Saab and Zuhair Murad saw their designs donned by Hollywood’s golden girls, from Jennifer Lopez who strutted the carpet in a nude, netted Elie Saab number, to Emma Stone who was tagged the Huffington Post’s best-dressed of the night in a chartreuse Elie Saab beaded gown.
Meanwhile, model Chrissy Teigen showed off a pale blue, form-fitting Zuhair Murad dress with a beaded, sheer upper body and structured skirt with flowing train.
Actress Anna Faris sported a white, pearl-encrusted frock designed by Zuhair Murad, now a red carpet staple.
Always dressed to impress, and raise eyebrows, Lady Gaga performed a medley of memorable tunes from “The Sound of Music,” in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Hollywood's all-time greatest musical.
Starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, the cinematic tale of the musical von Trapp family in Austria and their mischievous governess is a Hollywood classic.
In contrast to her own flamboyant concerts, Lady Gaga was all about the voice as she sang highlights from the beloved 1965 movie to the accompaniment of a string combo and a choir.
She then gave way to Andrews, 79, to announce the winner of the Oscar for best original score - Alexandre Desplat, for “The Grand Budapest Hotel.”
“Dear Lady Gaga, thank you for that wonderful tribute. Oh my god, it really warmed my heart,” said the British-born thespian.
