Jennifer Lopez’s upcoming Summer Tour kicks off this week in South America and like any other modern pop star, she’s enlisted the help of a luxury design house.
Zuhair Murad is the exclusive designer on J.Lo’s Summer Tour and each of her five costumes were designed in collaboration with Lopez herself and produced by Zuhair Murad’s Couture Atelier in Beirut, Lebanon.
“I wanted to make sure each look not only reflected but actually enhanced the feel of each section, so that her costumes would give even more life to her music,” says Zuhair Murad in a statement, “Much of my inspiration came from Paris during the Mistinguett Years, when costumes were as much of a part of the show as the dancers and the movement.”
Zuhair Murad has always been J.Lo’s go-to designer.
A year ago, J.Lo performed at the radio show Wango Tango in a custom spider-web inspired bodysuit from Murad. The bodysuit was an acquired taste, but it definitely sparkled on stage.
J.Lo also rocks Murad to most of her red carpet fetes. Jennifer wore a gorgeous white swan inspired silver sequin-embellished strapless gown to the 2010 Met Gala. She wore the designer again to her 2011 album launch event in a silver jumpsuit.
Although the jumpsuit screamed “tinfoil," J.Lo can kind of rock anything if she wants to. And of course, J.Lo chose the brand twice at this years Oscars: both of her plunging Oscar gowns were Murad.
