For nearly twenty years, Zuhair Murad’s signature has been the kind of lavishly sequined, “tattoo beaded” high evening dresses that make big waves in places like Cannes. This year, the 40-year-old designer scored photo ops on three major French starlets, and Petra Nemcova donned an elaborate gown that, by the designer’s own reckoning, probably added more than 20 pounds to her frame. Not that his girls complain: Women who live that level of glamour are keen enough to step out in Murad’s creations.
