It was back in 2011, in the music clip E.T. presenting an extraterrestial Katy Perry in duo with Kanye West, that first appeared an astonishing «space dress» from Nicolas Jebran’s Fall-Winter 2010-2011 collection. All red and black and playing on transparency and evanescence, it contrasted with an immaculate Viktor & Rolf dress in the video.
In 2012, Jennifer Lopez appears on the Q’Viva show in a silver playsuit from the Spring-Summer 2012 collection. The star displays herself regularly in outfits by Jebran: recently, she rocked the American Music Awards with a dress tied at the belly button from the same S/S 2012 collection.
In the same way, we saw Cheryl Cole, Lady Gaga, Rita Ora, Fergie, Iggy Azalea, Kylie Jenner, Demi Lovato and, of course, Beyoncé wearing Nicolas Jebran outfits, but we are still waiting for these encounters to be materialized into music videos.
The video that made Nicolas Jebran globally famous is Katy Perry’s Dark Horse with the “Egyptian” dress in 2014. The dress is taken from the Haute couture Fall-Winter 2013-2014 collection.
Thereafter, Jebran would draw stage costumes for Katy’s concerts, always in this Egyptian-neon style that he has the secret for.
But it is in this 2015 end of the year that Nicolas Jebran’s creations appear in an impressive number of videos.
In her clip The Crazy Ones, the Brit singer Paloma Faith wears a dress from the Fall-Winter 2012-2013 collection.
On stage, she opts for a mini-dress from the Fall-Winter 2014-2015 collection.
On the other hand, for Madonna’s Rebel Heart tour, original models were drawn, with feminized toreador outfits. The pop star presented her show during the Brit Awards last February.
Taylor Swift wears regularly Nicolas Jebran’s outfits, especially on stage. Her transparent playsuit with silvery glitters from her performance at the Big Weekend organized by the BBC was particularly impressing. In her clip Bad Blood, she is in a black molding body for the saber combat act.
Obviously, Jebran is much appreciated in Lebanon, where he has dressed practically all the local pop stars, from Haïfa Wehbé to Maya Diab.
This year, we noticed Najwa Karam’s latest clip: On the rock.
After a very rich 2015 year, Nicolas Jebran is becoming one of the favorite designers of the international pop divas.
