20 of Jennifer Lopez's best Zuhair Murad looks: 'he's my favourite' star says of Lebanese designer

She's routinely sported the designer's glitzy gowns at premieres and parties over the last decade

He's one of the region's most celebrated designers to the stars, but there's one particular A-lister that Zuhair Murad helps shine on the red carpet.

Jennifer Lopez this week paid tribute to the Lebanese talent, describing Ras Baalbek-born Murad as "probably my favourite designer".

The singer and actress opened up about her relationship with the couturier in a recent interview with event organiser Venture Lifestyle, revealing she first stumbled upon his work by chance.

"I discovered him years ago when I was doing a show, and I was so jet-lagged and I was up in the middle of the night watching Fashion TV, which they had in this country I was in," said the Get on the Floor star"He had this beautiful show and I was like who is this guy?"

Lopez added that she told her US stylists to acquire a gown from Murad, which she wore to the 2010 Met Gala (pictured above). "After that I started using him for everything," she said. "He designed my last tour. We just have a great relationship; he’s a beautiful man and a beautiful designer."

The Beirut-based fashion house shared a clip of the interview on Instagram, as did Murad on his personal account.

"Thank you for your beautiful words, your genuine and vibrant energy makes you one of a kind," the designer captioned the video.

True to Lopez's words, she has worn the label frequently over the last decade, sporting Zuhair Murad – whether sequinned jumpsuits or artfully beaded gowns – at the Golden Globes, Oscars after-parties and premieres aplenty.
