Zuhair Murad talks about Kristen at Paris Fashion Week
Kristen Stewart, who is usually spotted in jeans and tees, made headlines when she packed several barely-there Murad pieces for her Breaking Dawn - Part 2 world tour last year. At Thursday's show, Stewart sat with stylist Tara Swennen, and the two whispered about favorite looks, including a stunning royal blue gown. Stewart blew kisses to Murad.
THR: What was the moment you felt you had really made it in Hollywood?
You know, so many times, it was like one after another after another after another and each more important.
But there are some moments that I can’t forget, for example Jennifer Lopez at the Met Gala in 2010, she wore a beautiful Haute Couture ball gown in silver grey. Really she was gorgeous. She is always gorgeous, but that dress was really very special.
When Kristen Stewart wore the golden dress with transparent lace to the [Breaking Dawn] premiere – the whole world was talking about that dress! It was a big moment for me.
THR: You work with people from Kristen Stewart to Taylor Swift to Jennifer Lopez to Catherine Zeta-Jones – different generations, very different styles. What do you think it is about your designs that appeals to such different types of personalities?
You know, it’s nice when you see your clothes on different kinds of people, with different personalities and different beauty because I design for beautiful women, but not for one character or one personality. Dresses can also contrast with a personality, or bring out another side of someone. And different personalities can bring another side to my work.
